Hey DarixGoof !

Thanks a lot for your comments and sorry for the delay, I forgot to track the comments here lately.

As you stated, Cardys has a lot of potential and I also thought about a lot of things to include in this game.
All your ideas are really great and I also thought about some of them (like the ability to improve weapons and stuff, adding more races etc...).
However the current project is now frozen because of some problems :
- First, Cardys was my first big project and I used Flash to create it. Meaning that the code organization is not that good and it became quite difficult to update the game (each time I compile the sources, it takes at least five minutes to finish. You can guess it's quite frustrating when you want to correct some minor bugs)
- Second, I paid a designer for the game (quite a lot) because I wanted Cardys to include much much more. But due to the first point, it became harder and harder to include what I wanted. Cardys being free now, I can't invest more money in new races or any graphisms.
- Third, I started a new project which takes most of my time (http://www.indiedb.com/games/spooky-heroes). So I don't have much more time to spare on Cardys to include more content.

However, I'm using a new tool for my second game, more practical to create games than Flash. I've also started to learn basic graphics to work on my projects by myself. With all this, I think I might release in the future a new Cardys game with more contents and more possibilities (graphisms will change though, since I'm not yet capable to copy Cardys current graphics). But I will start it only after a few others of my projects are finished, so it might take some time.

Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks again for your support !

no problem at all :) I'm not expecting these things to happen overnight so take your time. I just thought I'd give some encouragement and some good ideas to make the creative juices flowing after that Troll Molotov trashed your image and game with no good bases...

As your first big project I can say that it was a success :) everytime I play I have tons of fun! though the learning curve is a bit steep since I dont really play Tabletop games much. A genre of games I wish was more popular...

I can understand your second point... maybe spread the word about this game like... ask big name youtube gamers to try out your game, and if they agree to spotlight it then make a kickstarter fund and see if you can get some funds that way... If I had money to give I would give it to you, but I'm a college student, and most of my funds go to buying textbooks and other supplies... I can understand why some people were saying to make the game free though due to the game being limited, but only because it is still in it's infancy.. perhaps if you were to release it as an alpha or beta build and have it for free then you would have built up the fanbase then release the game as a full build after you got some funding... but since this is your first game I can understand the frustrations...

as for your third point... I might check it out :) sounds pretty nifty...

After your second game is at a stable build or is at a point where you can take a break.. why not try seeing if you can invest some time into cardys and build it up some more :) which ever one reels in more people work on that one, and then build the other one up on the side :)

Your welcome mate! it takes a whole village to raise a child. and rome wasn't built in a day :) I know you can do it!

I've found a bug... if the enemy is just about to end their turn, and you click on of your units... the actions panel opens up, but the actions are for the enemy unit that just moved, and then the game freezes... and there is no fix... the glitch is somewhat rare though

after playing through more... I find that the glitch is actually easily repeatable... uhm.. I have suggestions.. please make there be a difficulty option for the computer... or maybe... have AI.. like... an Offensive AI, a Greedy AI, a Defensive AI... another suggestion is to add teams... I would throughly enjoy this game more if there were teams... like.. yeah you can make alliances with friends, but... once it is the last two standing.. to officially win the game you must either fight

DarixGoof Dec 31 2013, 8:14am replied:

each other, or just quit the game... I would also enjoy teaming up with the bots... uhm... maybe add in more races... Dark Elves, Trolls, Goblins... maybe even beasts like dragons, chimeras, hippogryphs... mounts? oooh! mounting a hippogryph makes the unit fly, and only ranged can hit it.. pets? like... maybe a beast tamer... or have a pet as a weapon instead... This game has so much potential! maybe have neutral camps of enemies set around the maps randomly so that your troops gain XP, and gives it more of a challenge beginning game... as for the resources mode... maybe add a way to upgrade the resources? like... buildings... farm for more gold, mine for more iron, etc. maybe even add upgrades for the HQ... like... make it more defensive for when it gets attacked... another thing... make the king stronger than typical units... I still have no clue how units regain their health after a battle... do they regain it slowly? if you add in the buildings feature... maybe add in a training center so that units on base slowly gain XP that scales with the building's lvl... also add in an infirmary so that the health goes up higher... add in items as well... HP pots or MP pots... even a way for the mages and magic casters to regain MP slowly... Ive had battles end in both sides only having mages, and neither side can do nothing but move because they have no mana left... and there is no mana pool... maybe add in jewelry? Rings, necklace, cape... special weapons/armor/jewelry? an actual Sword of Fire... so that you can have equipped in one hand a sword of fire, and in the other hand a shield... upgraded weapons/armor/jewelry? Sword +2 ... maybe add in a campaign more? how about Hero characters? Special buildings that give buffs set only in certain areas of the map? I really really want to see this game grow... add in Online multiplayer..

oh! here's another thought... please make the Map Editor much easier to work with... as of the moment... I have to click every single spot... please add a click and hold option for mass putting down the background items... also.. the option to make your own actual board map woul be really neat...

oh n-noes p-please d-d-don't report me! t-that would b-be terrible!

Eat Object Object. Last I checked you don't need to be established in an industry to be able to critique it, and you don't have to play every single god damn game to be able to tell when one is a Object awful piece of Object.

your Object logic;
>Only people who make games can judge games
>Only people who make movies can judge movies
>Only people who write books can judge books
>Only people who murder can judge murderers
>Only people who commit genocide can judge genocidal maniacs

Pull your tongue out of my arsehole

I never said you had to like the game, I was merely stating that you don't need to be a complete and utter Object to state that you don't like something. Unless you wish to have a heart attack going into a massive Object rage every time you see something that you don't like.
Mind you, I don't know why I'm replying, you've obviously proven your incomprehension of the English language, I never said you don't have a right to not like the game, I just stated that you don't need to be a complete Object Object in stating the fact.
There is a difference between hating a game and saying garbage like "you god damn worthless shill" and "Object kill yourself " which have nothing to do with your opinion of the game whatsoever.
Mind you, if you had an ounce of intelligence and minor comprehension of the English language, you would have figured out that I was not saying you had to like this game, just that you don't have to be the biggest Object in the universe just to state that you don't like the game.
However, I suppose you just forgot to take your meds, or maybe you missed your shrink appointment, either way, you're still an Object.
