DotO Update Blog

  • Rats!

    Ben has done it again! Haha, happy Saturday everyone. Today we have a small, but really cool update. It’s gross and it comes to you in the form of the Puke Rat! These tiny undead abominations have begun to swarm in the dungeons beneath the Obelisk. They’re not hard stop by themselves, but there’s just…

  • Farming all the Loot

    It’s Saturday and it’s time to update the DotO Update Blog! Last week, I talked about a small delay that we had. Now we have Prototype 3 and I’ve been playing it nonstop. I feel like it’s a really good sign that I’m enjoying it so much. We only have one dungeon and the single…

  • All the Systems

    Games are very complicated, it turns out! I knew it going in, but sometimes you can know something but still not fully comprehend it till it actually happens.

  • Two Months!?

    It’s still Saturday night, and um, I didn’t forget to blog all day today… But yeah, It’s Saturday and we recorded our fourth podcast episode yesterday.

  • The Most Beautiful Sewer

    It’s Saturday, so it’s time for an update blog! I don’t know, can a sewer look amazing? Green slime oozes it’s way down channels in the first few levels under the mysterious Obelisk. Maybe it’s connected to the sewers of Topia? Glub have started pouring out of the sewers and attacking local cats! If only…

  • It moves!

    It’s Saturday, so time for a DotO Update Blog! Everyone has been hard at work as usual! With our initial prototype done, it’s now time to turn our attention to the ever exciting world of Data Management! At least that’s what Kel is working on… Hey, don’t worry, it’s the backbone of the game! In…

  • Our First Mob!

    So, I’ve decided to try to blog here every Saturday, so check back when you can. It’s been a busy week here at Knob Cat. I’ve been making lots of executive decisions.
