Heroes of a Broken Land 1.1

Heroes of a Broken Land version 1.1 was just released.  No major changes in this release, mostly bug fixes and some balancing.

Here’s the full changelog:

  • Fix Full Heal Self skill not being usable
  • Fix multi-party dungeons not giving completion XP to all parties
  • Prevent Rat Plague from repeating, it’s a one-time event
  • Adjust Rat Plague event to not occur too early in the game
  • Prevent monsters summoning help when party is full
  • Jammers now hide objects and switches
  • Tweak store UI to stop selling when you click the scroll bar
  • Adjust Mass Resist resistance values (too high compared to Resist)
  • Increase gold dropped by higher level monsters
  • Adjust dungeon level by monster types (affects display/risk only, not gameplay)
  • Fix stun effect, stun effect should delays all actions, prevents counter attacks
  • Fix bug where gold would slowly decrease each turn in some cases
  • Fix issue where events would provide no valid choices, preventing user from choosing any option
  • Fix some spelling mistakes & typos

Most versions should auto patch when you restart the game.  If you have problems auto patching please do let me know ( or just post in the forums.

Toronto Global Game Jam 2014 – Echo Chamber

After releasing Heroes of a Broken Land on Monday, I was pretty rushed to get ready for the Toronto Global Game Jam. This was my first Game Jam so I was pretty excited, the organizers did a great job and a lot of fun was had by all.

I took the opportunity to dust off my Oculus Rift Dev Kit, which I’d been ignoring for far too long. I wanted to put together something that was technically interesting to me and also made use of the unique interface of VR.

The result was Echo Chamber:


It doesn’t look like much with our a Oculus head set, but the premise is really simple: you see by echo location.  It’s not the first game to try this out, heck I don’t think it’s even the first one called Echo Chamber!  Still, I’m happy with the result and am finally able to share my first “complete” Oculus Rift demo.
