We actually had that element in the game before, but found that there is already just so much global stuff going on (managing an economy, building turrets and walls, repairing stuff, targeting dangerous enemies, etc), that it doesn't work as great as it sounds like it would. Keep in mind in Minecraft you don't have the level of action that you will have in Block Fortress.

So again, right now its more focused on the base building aspect, rather than running around as an avatar...

But I'm curious to see what people think about that? Is having an avatar that you can do some damage with something that people would really love? - keeping in mind that with that it would naturally heavily take away from the base building TD aspect...



Actually Block Fortress is not quite like the "maze builder" TDs... enemies have the capabilities of attacking any part of your base (though your main objective is to defend your barracks). The cool part is that it makes it so careful planning is much more important, especially when things like elevation increasing turret range, line-of-sight, and other strategic elements play a role.

But this is also a mode we're toying with (more of the traditional TD).
To be honest i actually like the idea that it's more an overworld view. I dont really like to move around with a character to build stuff, and the overworld view seems the perfect solution.

All i can say is that this will be another Foursaken jaw-dropper, and i havent even picked my jaw up from H&C!

I'd think with the release of Heroes & Castles,You'd guys be really busy. But I'm glad to hear about the beta testing. Can't wait for this to come out.

I actually agree, but we understand some people like that element - which is why we've created a neat blend between the two. Most of the building is done in the overworld view, inbetween the action sequences. However, your avatar has 4 slots to put ANY block into. So you could go pure offense with all weapons, you could go "standard" with some weapons and some equipment, or you could go "builder", where you put turrets and wall blocks into your slots, allowing you to build on the fly and adapt better to incoming enemies.

Trust me, we are - on all fronts! The beauty is we've set up a system and have a team that allows us to work on a few things at once without slowing any one thing down
