Godslayer Wycca Warriors Unveiled by Megalith Games

Megalith Games has some greens up of their new Wycca Warriors for you to check out.



Source

From the preview:

Death-Cultists worship Dhannya in her aspect of Morrigu the Crone – the avenger, cleanser, and guardian of the passage of the dead.

Wycca Warriors form the foot soldiers of the Death-Cult; they are the sons of Morrigu and are so closely tied to her that they are barely classifiable as living at all – poised as they are on the doorstep to the afterlife.

Their dour nature and baleful deeds derive not from malice but from a deep reverence for life, while their most despised enemies are those who defile nature, and the undead which are an abomination against the eternal circle. When the shadow of war looms, the Wycca Warriors form the hard kernel of Tuathan armies.

Dark Ice Games previews Darklight: Memento Mori

Dark Ice Games has a teaser video up for the game they're working on, Darklight: Memento Mori and they figured I would like to share it with you.
Well, I would like to share it with you. So here it is.



Source

From the website:

Welcome to Darklight: Memento Mori and to our first developer’s blog!

If this is your first visit, I strongly suggest you go and have look at the Gallery section and check out some of the work done so far, then learn a bit more about the game in the About section

Now, for this first update I am going to say I am glad that after many delays and complications, I have finally got the website up and running, it took a lot of very hard work and preparation to get where the project is at now, and I want to give a massive “thank you” to all of those who helped me for the past year.

I have been creating a prototype of the game for almost a year now, to reflect the looks of what the game will look like once it is complete. The current focus on development is refining the game core mechanics and that means combat, exploration, and monsters behaviours. The game is at a playable stage, and after extensive playtest sessions with friends, I have spotted still a few minor issues which needs ironing as well as some number balancing before I can move on to the next stage.
