    Devlog: Upcoming Update 0.8

    Let's talk about the upcoming update in detail!

    Hello there, Companions!

    [​IMG]

    It's been quite some time without any news on the development of Glorious Companions, which doesn't mean that there wasn't any progress being made. Anyhow, now when we're getting close to releasing the new update, we're back with a fresh development log.

    Without any further ado, let's go over the biggest changes and new additions that this update will introduce into the game. Of course as usual there'll be some balance changes, bug fixes and QoL tweaks along with a few new abilities, but for now let's talk about the big stuff.

    NPC Group Generator Rework

    This is a change that finally allows us to configure more interesting NPC groups. Thanks to this rework we can now easily adjust unit types, levels, equipment, skills, number of units, etc. With this backend change we've also tweaked the already existing groups of enemies, such as Bandits, Shadows, NPC Lords and the likes. Bandits will from now on yield weak and cheap equipment, while Shadows and NPC Lords will begin the game with higher levels and more expensive equipment.

    Then there'll be three new neutral group types running across the world map: Sword Sisters, Iron Hammers and Swamplings. The first two groups are higher tier enemies that should make for some interesting encounters in the later stages of the game, while the Swamplings are Bandit-level units based on the Scarres race to spice up the early game.

    Tavern units also received some tweaks. Now aside form the regular level 1 newbies, sometimes you'll come across more experienced and better equipped mercenaries, which of course will cost a lot more gold to recruit.
