I would suggest using item images that match with the pixelated style. The easiet way to do that is to find some 16x16 item images and resize them by 200% using the nearest neighbor settings. Other then that it’s looking alright so far. Good luck on your project!

I really understand what you say. At the moment we are focusing on the basics. So at the first moment it will appear that the items and sprites graphics do not match. In the future when we work in more detail in the graphics. We will fit the items with the sprites graphics, we are still studying the way they are constructed. colors, techniques and everything. I appreciate your comment, we will be taking into consideration in the future.


The concept art, will be for the construction of a background for the client, which is consistent with the game. Concept art of game places, class sprites or even monsters, in addition to backgrouds, we also use for other things, like advertising. So, my girlfriend is focusing on this now, and in the future for the next seasons of the game, we will fit the graphics, looking like everything from the same universe / artist.

  • 3 months later...

Since February 16, I have not touched the project because of my college, I'm in the final stages of it. Now I've returned with my project even firmer than ever.


Returned missions and bug fixes
Construction of gui
Elaboration of concepts arts
We recruited another 4 people to the staff -
2 for event handling, for missions and history
1 for the graphic part of elaborating icons, and concept art, working together with my girlfriend
1 for mapping.
That joining my current team of 4 people, helps me to see an approximate date for a launch, as at the end of the year.


Returning the missions, I decided to create a moment of panic and chaos to prepare the story for the second season. I hope you like this video.

Because, after a long time we are resuming the project, with many ideas and applications. After almost 6 months, I reviewed my project with new eyes after experiencing new experiences. I am changing the entire thesis of the project, but much of the original still stands for excellent planning. Now with more free time I will focus all my time available on the project. It's been almost a month since I returned to the project, but now I've only had time to update the entire page.

I refitted all the missions I had.
I re-edited all requirements for all weapons, resources, spells.
I have refactored all the animations of the 0 - Now I know to configure enough animations, still more to make compatible with the size of the sprites.
I have refined all events of 0 and have recovered much of everything, reworking the new story.
I worked hard enough all this time. I'm hoping to finish at least one beta by the end of the year. And I increased my activities here at AGD.
Now I have a better north, and I'm moving forward with everything.


Go check all.

Today I finished the whole system on the part of farming system.

In my tests, I decided to split the '' Master in Farming '' into 2 parts.
Putting points in this mastery up to 50 points. New areas are released to plant new things.
Each specific area is designated to plant a different kind of thing.



This shows 1 kind of animation for when you plant something.
We will have 13 different types of ingredients this season that can be planted and harvested for the most different purposes.



The second part of the farming system will be the possibility of caring for animals. You buy them, put them in a barn, pay an NPC to care for them.
They begin puppies, over time they grow, and in that they can get more resources from them.

This is just a note. This second part will only be worked on the second season.

Today I did many things.
I studied and refined the whole class system.
I did more missions.
I spent a good deal of time correcting logic errors that I found playing and replaying several times.

I changed my game system.
My plan was

Main Mission -> Secondary Mission -> Main Mission -> Secondary Mission -> Main Mission ...
That is, to continue some main missions, would have to complete some secondary, it is through them that I slowly introduce some systems of the game.

And as there are 4 villages and 1 kingdom. Each village and kingdom would have its share of major and minor missions. 8 secondary missions per village and kingdom. and some major missions with no right amount.

But when I arrive at the missions of the second village. History becomes indenpendent of secondary missions. Making the village missions 3, 4 and the kingdom unused. Even more than the main missions now, they involve these 2 villages and the kingdom. With the 8 side missions of village 1 and 2, the player has already explored much of the island and the systems that the game offers.

Now I have 30 major missions - 9/30 are done.
And 40 secondary missions - 16/40 made.

Now I will focus my efforts on the main missions to finish everything. 7 major missions have already been made, getting 16/30, but the other 14 missions will be needed to complete these extremely important 7.

While the secondary missions, which remain, as there is nothing but a '' new mission '' space in the database, I will use it in the end, to create yes side missions. But something more random, in uncommon places, some even suspense, - I have the resources for that - to give a player an air of '' there's something else to do '' once it's over.

Taking into account that SPOILER - the end of the main missions lead to the resurgence of 2 archangels of one good and another of evil and the causes of this in the game world will only be shown in the second season


I have hopes, yes, that at the end of this month all the main missions will be finalized, and I might even release a beta. I already have vps for this.

Remembering that the language of the game is Portuguese / Brazil

And here we are again. Finally I was able to finish all that is necessary for the first season and I was able to advance another step from WIP to CLOSED BETA.


This year end and the beginning of the year I did not post any more updates here at AGD, because to some extent this distracted me. Then decide to post only something when I had finished it all. And finished. Let's get to the topics.

Many changes have occurred since I took over the project.

[First] I finished all the missions, with the possibility of completing all of them, but it is not an easy task.

[Second], I removed the class system, now we have unique classes, a better and more developed system will be added later in the project, without affecting the state in which it is, I will add new classes over the seasons.

[Third], I've changed the formula for physical damage and magical damage to meet my needs.

[Fourth] I've changed all the monsters [npcs], history in general, spells and among other things, I made up a lot of everything that I already had and I was able to finish in time.

[Fifth] I changed the way things worked, stores, monsters xp, mission rewards, made everything harder. Before, I manipulated huge numbers and never reached a reasonable balance. Now, I made the game more difficult, with small numbers, for a better manipulation of the constants and balance of PVP and PVE.

[sixth] I created a lot of maps, interiors, situations, conditions, redistributed all existing monsters to all maps, changed the brightness of the player that did not exist outside the villages [we will have torch for the player to light in the dark], name of all maps and changed the music of all maps and interiors [there are still some, more will be added over time]

[seventh] at last I checked everything, and I just noted the next tasks so that the entire first season is really 100% and in that we will move to an OPEN BETA.
At this point in CLOSED BETA, I will test if all the missions are going well and if the features are ok. If so, then I will move on to CLOSED ALPHA, where I will finish all pending tasks to launch an ALPHA OPEN.


I appreciate who you read and the support I receive from you. Heroes Apocalypse is getting closer and closer to the end of Season One and you can then test and return with feedback.

Fast Modification.
As stated on the main page, we have a mastery system that configures all the main points of the game, crafting, weapon requirements or spells among other things.

In each city there was a "learning center" where there were masters in each specialization who trained you at the cost of skill points.


A change was made, to speed up the process in the project, I deleted all the learning centers of all the cities, since if I had to modify these masters, I would have to modify all the masters what it costs time.

In contrast I created a unique learning center in the sky, where the player can go free until typing  /learning. There will be all masters and any modification stays in one place.

I posted this update because it can give ideas to other developers.


That is the basis, soon complete post.
