    This is mainly a build to introduce the new SINGLE PLAYER CHALLENGE called "SAVE THE PRINCESS". It is a hopefully short fun little challenge, mainly for the purpose of introducing new players into the game.
    This release also makes singleplayer basically DRM free and open for everybody even without paying for the game. Two reasons for this:
    1. We want it to be sort of a demo of the beta.
    b. We'll be featured in upcoming bundles and promotions which like to include DRM free games

    Tomorrow IndieGameStand will be holding a 4 day sale of KAG -> https://indiegamestand.com/

    Other changes include:
    • lots of scripts optimizations to increase server performance
    • improved spikes collision
    • possible to avoid spikes retracting when moving very very slowly
    • trap blocks open trap blocks above them - eg. can build ceiling traps with boulder
    • fixed platforms and materials taking jab/slash damage
    • new help image in ESC menu
    • lots of tweaks to help messages (F1)
    • minimap dissapears on mouse hover
    • trader is invincible (just a temporary solution)
    • bison AI fixed a lot (he still jumps insanely though)
    • added health bars to shark and bison
    • boulder crushes when on top of player

    Play the single player and you'll see how traps work there.

    I saved Rayne just long enough for our first and final kiss, then we were immediately struck down and killed by the evil Mage. So tragic! SO BEAUTIFUL! :QQ:

    The challenge mode reminds me of Fat Princess (PS3) game which is very similar to KAG sans the building aspect. To win the game, both team has to rescue and carry the princess back to their base. Both team would feed their prisoner princess with a lot of cakes so she became so fat that the rescuer had a hardtime carrying her. Good times.

    Found a bug in solo where archers would stay in the air when tower already colapsed.
    [​IMG]
    [Edit:] I finished Singleplayer now, it was nice to play. Princess looked like Gandalf the Grey. Could Imagine that solo will turn into an awesome offline Campaign with a total gaming experience of 2 to 3 hours.
    The talking bots were fun and brought some life into it, could be even more talking. Also the endboss should get some slow motion scripted thing, that the player knows this is the evil endboss bla bla and he wont get the princess bla bla...
    If you want to use solo also as an introduction I would bring some tutorial aspects into it.
    Thx for the update
    [Edit2:] The mounted bow part was totally badass! :D

    @Above - they'll fall once their arrows despawn. Not sure how we should fix this without making arrows cause a lot of CPU strain.

    The challenge mode has drawn attention to just how annoying not being able to attack through wood is, so we'll likely be dealing with that soon. This week we'll be in full overdrive trying to get to build ready for normal public consumption.

    Make the Castle bigger so that its unlikely that the tower will collapse. Better than flying archers^^
