Coffin Rot Brewing Co. Update (10/9/2019)

October 9, 2019 Goat of Departure Community Announcements
Hello there, fellow bartenders! With the upcoming beta and launch date, we figured we should start providing progress on where we are and where we plan to be. For starters, a beta build has been submitted and is awaiting approval. This means anyone signed up for the beta will have a chance to play it this upcoming Friday and help shape the future of Coffin Rot! There's a lot of balancing that needs to be done before our launch date this winter, and with your help, we'll be able to hit that mark on the head. We have 3 of the 4 enemy types implemented for the beta test now, with the only one missing being the Necromancer. The Necromancer is the leader of the undead horde and has mastered the art of reanimation. Without him being destroyed, hordes of Juju floaters will be spawned from the corpses of enemies to wreak havoc on your gold stash. Destroy him at all costs. The Debt Collector boss fight has also been implemented, but we're looking for ways to make it more interesting. With some playtesting and feedback, we hope to make the fight as enjoyable as possible. The last important thing that needs to be added is the progression system. We found that players had a difficult time jumping right into the role of a master bartender and want to pace that experience out a bit more efficiently. This will be accomplished through gaining long term currency referred to as "diamonds". Players can purchase the necessary upgrades for the bar through the ledger using these diamonds. After the beta test, we'll have a lot of tweaking to do, but will be sure to share our experience with everyone interested! The beta test will be live on Friday, October 11th to October 14th. Please join our discord to learn more! With drunken love, -The Nooner Bear Team
