Free Demo on Steam NOW!! Exciting New Features in Patch 0.01
Come check out the game for free on Steam through the month of February – https://store.steampowered.com/app/2293680/Crestfallen_Medieval_Survival/
Development has been so much fun as our team is rapidly growing and so many medieval and survival games enthusiast show up to help out and make this thing better and better everyday. I cant express how grateful I am for everyone that has pushed this siege wagon forward with all the strength in their backs. Huge shout out to my veterans James, Patrick, Luke, and Laz1k! Extending the warmest of welcomes to our new helpers and friends Rayner and his elite, Pash, Dr.Smoke and his crew and the rest of the discord ranks that are forming the middle column for battle. My Knights of The Round Table are a force to be reckoned with and make me so so proud.
I dont think your suppose to do this but I got to give some credit to ALLLLL the assets I am using that put a fat smile on my face. Developing this game has been one of the best things that’s happened to me (dont tell my wife and kids … #4 due in a few months) and I love it so so much. Really able to make a game for the gamers. I have been playing for almost 40 years and really know what I would want to see in a game so I put crazy amounts of detail and polish into every little aspect, a bit obsessive.
First off these armors, clothing, elves, barbs, cultists, dwarves, and secrets yet to be revealed are from the masterminds at Polyphoria. WOW, I really couldn’t be more impressed with the high quality and performance we are able to achieve with these assets and even though I have killed myself setting them up they do so well at 512 texture and are super performative while also looking incredible. Check them out at this link (not sponsored I just love em) https://polyphoria.com/ For my buildings, castles, and everything in between I am working with a 500gig project of the best most awesome assets I could afford on the Unreal engine market place to make this bad boy in Unreal 5.3.2 with all the latest technology.
Holding over 100 fps with every multiplayer function performing well on our brand new shiny Official Dedicated Servers! Huge thanks to James AGAIN and https://styxnetworks.co.uk/ if you ever need to host, this is the spot. He literally setup a 50k job of having all the networks be automated on upload and all the servers be intertwined so we have the smartest fastest solution out there so I can keep building like a madman and push updates out almost daily. I think some people get frustrated cause they build a huge castle but we have so much to add always we have to take servers down, SORRY! As things stabilize we can discuss a weekly or bi weekly routine if that helps 🙂
I will post a bunch of the dev lists here so you can catch up on our progress if interested. Our demo has been running a few days now on Steam and has over 6,000 downloads and lots of positive user feedback, very encouraging after years of hard hard work developing and learning Unreal Engine after the big switch from Unity. I really feel like I can fly, in Unity I was so miserable thinking about occlusion culling and baking static meshes that I never could focus on the raw game play. Now I have to nerf Lions because they rip people up too fast. Good problems to have!
I am aiming for a July 1st, 2024 launch date I think in these few months I will be able to organize and execute a more robust quest system integrating all the factions for a nice MMORPG vibe. Polish and fix up the catapult, ballista, and trebuchet so they are flawless for raiding. Finish the UI to have a complete on theme vibe, and smooth out any bugs and optimizations that are qued up for attention. We are also adding horses and we might let players fly the dragon around but not if its too OP.
