This update brings new usability tweaks to the battle system.
- ADDED UNIT DETAIL PANEL
Clicking on a character now displays a details panel containing their targeting parameters, abilities, equipment and stats, as well as active status effects – all without interrupting combat!
- ADDED DIALOG SYSTEM
One or more characters can now appear on the screen and summon a text box with text. Super rudimentary, but it works!
- REDUCED GRID SIZE
We reduced the battle grid size from 4*3 to to 3*3. We found the grid to be too large for the average amount of units deployed in a regular battle, and the reduction in size also enables us to utilize more detailed sprites.
- SPRITES ARE BIGGER
We increased the size of battle sprites from around 48px in height to 64px, increasing both their readability and overall aesthetic to roughly resemble PS1 era sprites.
- CHANGE NOTES NOW HAVE IMAGES
We’ll start to include suitable images for bullet points to illustrate the changes better. Let us know if you prefer this to the more readable text-only version!
