August was an exciting month for us with the first gamescom we participated as developers and first livestreams of Elemental War 2 gameplay!
Elemental War 2
August was super exciting as we participated in gamescom for the first time as developers this year. We had a demo of Elemental War 2 you could download and together with Games/Bavaria we had two livestreams. Thanks to BierBaumBY and MADsti for playing Elemental War 2 and the valuable feedback we received during the stream.
So before gamescom we were super busy to get the demo done as we still had quite some placeholders in the game and had to polish it up. But luckily we had a stable version ready.
After gamescom we continued our usual work and included the feedback. Actually most of the feedback already made it into the game, basically a lot of quality of life improvements like displaying tower names above the towers, adding information about what element icon refers to which element in the summon menu and so on. Some bigger bullet point are the tutorials. We have a concept for them now and will add them maybe already in September, depending on how long the other planned things will take there.
We also applied for all consoles now. While PlayStation 4 & 5 are no problem, we have to wait for a response from Microsoft regarding Xbox. As Elemental War 1 already got released on Xbox we hope it won’t be a problem to get part 2 on there as well.
Now in September we do the console ports, add the coop mode and finally also add new maps. Probably all of these tasks will also last into October, but we’ll see, we make big steps forward pretty fast at the moment and will be able to show you more ingame footage soon.
If you’re a PlayStation 5 player, you can wishlist the game there hopefully on Friday (Sep 3rd).
In August we released Spine 1.34 with a few bugfixes and new keyword search that shall help to find projects you’re looking for even when not knowing exactly what you’re looking for.
The new update in September will as well contain some bugfixes as usual and also solve a problem that’s mostly a problem for me. The news writing currently isn’t that flexibel when supporting multiple languages as we usually do e.g. for the Spine releases and progress report. The plan is to have the same mechanism as for the info pages, to automatically fall back to an English news in case there is none in the selected language, and if there isn’t an English version fall back to the existing language. For me as a news writer that means I don’t have to copy stuff around anymore, even though I first have to add that functionality of course.
And even though I already mentioned it in the last Spine release news: The new UI overhaul still will come and I still hope to be able to at least add some kind of preview this year.

Since we released Tri6: Infinite on PlayStation in April there wasn’t much activity about the game anymore from our side. As we still have a lot of players (especially on consoles) we prepared a new patch to fix a few annoying bugs we stumbled upon in the last months and we thought would be worth getting fixed.
The update is scheduled for Friday (Sep 3rd) for all platforms if nothing goes wrong with consoles (never released a Switch patch so far!).
