Asgard 0.3.10 Released

Written for Asgard by Russ Adams on 2012-08-17

Summer has rolled along well for Asgard. We were able to crank out Asgard 0.3.10 "Arbor Grey" today. There are three main items in this release:
 1. Hardpoint enforcment. It is now not possible to walk in places where you might expect to not be able to walk.
 2. Map Object Type restructuring. This is not noticeable in game play, but with this refactor, the code is a little easier to maintain.
 3. Inventory work. We made progress on implementing item inventories which will be used in various places throughout game play.

The next release will be in October, and we're looking forward to it.

Tonight we're letting out Markland--a great step towards a more functional map. Markland stacks map objects by their proximity to each other.

We're looking forward to Asgard 0.3.10 Arbor Grey which should implement a semi-functional game editor to help facilitate our growing map.

Tonight, Asgard Team releases 0.3.8 codenamed 'Halfspent'.

Halfspent provides a beautiful playable character which moves to points on the map in response to user clicks. Additionally, the map will automatically pan when the playable character approaches the margins of the screen.

We're very excited about the developments in Halfspent, and we're looking forward to bringing win-ability to Asgard in the next two releases.
