Dev Blog 20 – We Be Shieldn’

Hope everyone had a great weekend! We are a bit late this week, having worked on Saturday to keep up with the latest crunch. Last week we made huge progress with the combat system; shields, dodging, and some satisfying unarmed melee has sparked a competition in the office to see who can beat up more afflicted before being taken down! So far Adam has the high score, but that wont be for long!
