Knock-knock, adventurers!

We’re happy to see you again! A lot of interesting things happened this week — for example, an update was released where we added a lot of new animations, fixed some events and items, as well as introduced the new karma display and much more. You can read more in this post here:

In honor of Easter

To begin with, let’s prepare for the upcoming holidays — Easter is coming, and we’ve prepared a small interactive event for you. In our social networks, Mortis has hidden a spell that will help you defeat Sigismund. He divided it into separate words. If you collect all 9 parts, you will be able to defeat the corrupt monarch and at the same time get a game key!

On April 9, we’ll post a document where you can write down the spell and receive your prize in exchange. So here’s the Easter hunt we’ve come up with for you — a hunt with Mortis!

Well, there’s still enough work ahead, although we’re at the final stage of polishing the game and we are busy with something secret too(you’ll like it, we promise!)

Animations, animations, animations

Sigismund and the Cultist continue evolving under the steady hand of our animation department. They both have acquired yet another form and are ready to scare us and take away our health points.

For example, Sigismund has very sharp eyes in his diabolical form. It’s impossible to avoid or hide from him. All one can do is… attack with all their might!

This Cultist lived near water for so long that he grew tentacles. Trypophobes had best not look at him — our artists tried their best while designing him! However, the cannibals among the cultists would definitely sell their souls once again for “seafood cocktail” like him.

Even little icons need animations!

Our artists haven’t been working hard on the icons for so long in vain, as now they’re almost ready to appear in the game in all their glory. But we’ll leave that for future updates, as work on them is in full swing.

Special cards for special madams and sirs

While we were visiting different locations, one of our artists slipped away from us and drew some more card art. What specific cards do you think these pictures are for? Write your guesses in the comments!

That’s it for today. Thank you for staying with us on this long and thrilling journey.

Don’t forget about hunting with Mortis, come chat in our social networks, and see you in the next diary!
