Alex, thank you for your comment! sometime I find large posts intimidating because I’m so slow at writing myself. But none the less, I take much delight in reading these large posts! It makes me happy that you’re so interested in seeing what is coming next – and so here is my response to your suggestions!
Bosses in Armed with Wings Versus
Boss Battles makes perfect sense for AwW Versus. What would be interesting to see is the unique, larger bosses return: Skull Boss from AwW3, Lvl6 Boss from AwW1… Even new ones like a Giant Snake!
I feel that other playable characters should be AI controlled opponents too. The issue with that is creating these characters to be both playable and AI controlled is actually difficult. I achieved this in Culmination with Vandheer, but the code was a horrible disaster. There may need to be semi-major code changes to the way players currently work. None the less its totally possible so it’s likely to happen.
Regarding new animations for existing characters, this will not be likely for AwW Versus. Most characters move set will be adjusted/altered in the way they previously control. But make no mistake, I will definitely recreate all animations for THE BIG ONE.
Make Network a playable character
Yes, Network will be playable! Network rocks such a cool skillset – veeerryy powerful! Ever since I created him, I thought to myself “I’d love to play as this!”.
I also felt that he was too easy to beat in AwW3. So as an opponent, Network will be more challenging.
Add more playable characters
I have plans to include the following characters: Leo (done), Lone Warrior (done), Vandheer, Eivana, Hawkin, Network. This is only a handful of characters, but it’s doable. I would like to continue support for this game post launch too, so may more characters can be included!
Have more enemy types
Regarding enemy types, I’ve developed 2 new dark creatures: Standard and ranged monster. I’ll be adding more dark creatures, including the flying ones from Culmination (they won’t be so annoying this time). Additionally, I’ll be including the human soldiers from AwW1, 2 and 3 – Swordsmen, Spearmen, Archers and more. AwW Versus is a celebration of the Armed with Wings series, so naturally I must include both imperial Soldiers and Dark Creatures.
Hope this response is insightful! Have a good day!
