Box art survey
The results of the box art survey we conducted
in January are in and box number three was unanimously
the favourite. This box concept is currently
being worked on more by our marketing team (town
is to be redone, as is the lettering, faces
and other bits and pieces) so as to be ready
for production. When we have a final box we
will make sure to show it to you all. In case
you forgot what box three looked liked, here
was a busy month and we've had a lot of fun working
on buildings, characters, weapons, armour and fantastic
spell effects. The team here have some great looking
stuff coming on, such as bows with flames running up
and down them, deadly showers of ice shards and fiery
rocks and so-on. The magic is very physical and visually
impressive, no more simple glowing lights! We've also
been working on sounds and had a great time getting
a voice actor to yawn, shout, laugh, growl, act hurt
and make death sounds! Also, Rob our writer has been
hard at work fleshing out more of the lore and background
to Fortitude. Expect to start on an interesting voyage
of discovery when we start releasing more information
in coming weeks and months.

post of the week
I started a thread asking the fans what
a Kittah was? A question in our last dev
chat got the developers and the community thinking
and the result has been a thread of Photoshop monstrosities!
Come have a look and add your own picture of what
you think a Kittah might look like!

Slaine has organised a gallery of pictures of Dragon
Empires community members. Judge for yourselves which

unsupervised! Nice work Slaine.
