Greetings Lords & Ladies,

the first topic we will cover today is related to the new Hive hardfork. Because of the recent events we decided to rename our project. Just to be safe in the future. After a lenghty brainstorming session and the consideration of the proposals from @rentmoney and @okean123 we came to the conclusion that we didn't want to include the chain's name into the project... because of reasons 🤔. Sorry @okean123, thanks for the suggestion though!

@rentmoney made a lot of suggestions and our favorite was: Battle of the Knights. We really liked this one and nearly decided to take it. But then @mrbandler brought a proposal we couldn't deny. It was

Knights of Cathena

We really fell in love with this name and thought this would be a great chance to add lore to the game in the future. Stay tuned on that front!

@mrbandler: So why Cathena you might ask, well the reason is simple a quick Google Translate showed that Cathena is latin for Chain. I immediatly liked it and after I showed it to @cloud925 and @mwfiae they liked it aswell, so here we are!

Now to the recent development progress we made on the game itself.

We shifted our development tasks. Because of this @mwfiae took matters into his hands on the automation of our game development related content front. He integrated the platforms Telegram and Discord and is now actively working on the Hive integration. Unfortunately Patreon and Ko-Fi don't have a public API to post content so we had to scratch that off our feature list. We will still provide content on those platforms we just won't relay our publically available content to them.

Maybe some of you did follow our development stream the past two weeks. @mrbandler made great progress on the level design front in our new Classic Mode arena map. We are quite certain that you will love the new look. At least we really like it so far and are more than excited to further develop the new look and feel of the game.

Here are some screenshots of the current Classic Mode arena level design to put you in the new Knights of Cathena mood:




To complete the new design I (@cloud925) used my vacation (on my full-time job) to integrate the new knight models into the current gameplay system. Some new animations are also included to provide an even fresher feeling.

Here is a sneak peak of our new knights:

That's it for today!

Be sure to stay inside your castle in these crazy times.
Have a great weekend and stay healthy!

Yours truly,

For Steem Hive the Community we fight!
