New playable characters and items in Gauntlet of Power demo 0.0.7

New playable characters and items in Gauntlet of Power demo 0.0.7

You can’t have a great adventure without a bunch of friends! So the Heroes of Loot are reunited again as this demo brings the playable characters for Wizard and Valkyrie!

I’m still balancing their weapon stats and dodge moves, but take them for a spin and let me know how far you got!

So the update list is LONG this time, if you prefer shorter ones, come hang out on the Discord for the shorter “day by day” updates thanks to my Ori bot.

Version 0.0.7 of Gauntlet of Power comes with a bunch of fixes, improvements and of course new features. Like the playable characters, new enemies, and a collection of new items (my goal is to increase this towards a hundred items before we release..!)

There are als a couple of extra boss battles in there, and I randomized the order of encountering them for even more fun.

Next on the list of features is more special rooms where you can encounter NPC’s who give you a quest, or maybe trade items with you, or other kind of adventurous interactions. Besides that a big missing feature is still weapon-combo’s to unlock new special weapons.. I just have to figure out what kind of weapons !

So that’s a couple of big things I plan on working on for the next demo!
