It would seem that Charles’ time with us has been short, he just didn’t have the spare time or passion for the project he originally thought he had.
I can’t say I’m not disappointed with this recent news, making the the additional coder stick has been a nightmare.
Ah well as Ian says “Fourth times a charm” >n<
Sorry about the lack of news updates on the website. We’re still working diligently on Kraden’s Crypt. In fact as the title does state we’ve got a top secret new addition the team (Programmer: Charles Tye) who is a secret no more!
We are happy to have Charles on the team with his invaluable programming skills. Now balance has been restored to the KC team!
Want to see a few of Charles’ past projects?
Then just head on over to his website: http://www.dalrack.com/
Welcome aboard Charles!
More updates coming soon!
Over at: www.bundle-in-a-box.com , so check out the current bundle of lovely games! The money goes towards charity and a Grant for Indie Developers! So If you’ve got a spare vote, we’d love to feed it to master Kraden, he’s hungry!
We just got a KC interview published from John Meadowcroft, an editor from cartridge magazine you can check it out here.
It’s worth a look just for the developer mugshots
It seems recruiting myself a red dragon (which I named Buffins) to guard the master treasury may have not been my finest display of Crypt management. It seems Buffins has taken a rather delectable taste to my treasures. I admire her passion for the role of treasury guard, however I am greatly displeased with Buffins flairing her nostrils and snarling at me with disapproval each time I attempt to examine my gems. I thought about disposing of the beast but I have grown attached to her bright emerald green eyes and smokey smell. Also dragons don’t come by the Crypt very often, you don’t see them lining up unlike those despicable beans.
Oh…Here’s a Picture of what I had for breakfast:
I have been observing the internet realm some more and discovered you humans like to post pictures of your breakfasts before you eat them, so here’s my breakfast!
Ian is now actively blogging his progress on programming the game (link added on the top website menu). Click Ian’s Dev Blog to find out more of what he’s been up to with the development of Kraden’s Crypt and other past projects he’s worked on. You may even learn a thing or two!
It is much to my regret to report that the beans have committed treason by causing an upset in my stomach. I would have them executed but I think eating them has complicated things. Perhaps it was wrong for me to put my faith in an entire jar of them. It’s hard to believe that what was once a very prosperous and delicious alliance has turned into this display of treachery and deceit. What’s worse is these bean creatures are not as primitive as I was once lead to believe they are advancing at an alarming rate. They are building weapons and some of my minions even report sightings of self propelled chariots and giant metal creatures, these are reported to be the beans’ doing. It seems they have already adopted their own leaders, don’t they know that’s my job? I hope that mistaken bean “king” didn’t use any of my gems to encrust that crown! Insolent beans, If it was not for their delicious taste and highly advanced weaponry, I’d have turned them all into bean soup! Well it’s too late to start blasting them all now, It would take me half a century, I’ll just have to apply other means to restore order.
I can’t believe what has happened! I exile two decrepit beans and now they’re all lining up to get into the crypt. My minions have been able to assemble most of them into jars but their are so many of them still bouncing around doing who knows what. I have had two Ogre minions carry over one of the jars for study. Upon closer inspection it appears that the beans are very tasty and come in a variety of flavors, Bootleg the blue has served me very well with his delightful blueberry taste and will continue to do so as I digest him. If only I could know such honor. I will continue my studies upon this Jar and *munch chomp chomp*…and I’m sure… *nom nom crom*…that these beans…*yom nom* (The rest of the report is illegible as it is covered in bean juice).
What’s this? Why do I not see any frantic running or panicking yet? Everyone made a big deal of that Mayan calendar thing. I thought I’d at least cause some minor stomach cramps… well that settles it, you’ve really forced my hand… to point to one of my minions and have HIM build me a dimensional door!
