Status: Alpha versions (Testing)
Revision to be confirmed.
Brockemon posted an update at the 27th of March, 2019 about it in the #official-news section of the Official Discord Server for the Stick War Series. A screenshot of it can be found on the right.
Here's a basic summary of the information there:
- They have started early work on it and are confident with a multiplayer engine setup of 40 vs. 40 unit battles with individual unit control.
- Individual unit control will be similar to Stick War and Stick War: Legacy's, differentiating from Stick Empires.
- They are considering the idea of multiple players on the same team, i.e. 2 vs. 2 matches. They are imagining that the primary player will be in charge of managing the economy and building units. Any additional players would be "side-kicks"; they will be controlling individual units. "Side-kicks" may be rewarded or given a bonus in the game for doing this.
- The game will be rendered in 3D, but the sprites for the stickmen will be 2D. This approach is predicted to improve camera effects as you move past the army, otherwise known as the Parallax Effect.
