The creators of the shareware fighting game Project Lwhose events unfold in the universe League of Legends, released a video diary in which they revealed new details of the game. According to executive producer Tom Cannonthe team has already implemented the character announced back in August into the test build of the game Illaoi. At the time of the announcement, the heroine was just a set of ideas and conceptual sketches, but four months later, her early version is already available for internal testing. The authors showed her abilities in the video, however, noted that Illaoi’s 3D model and her animations may be subject to changes in the future.
Development manager Sean Rivera noted that in addition to the usual movement capabilities that are characteristic of all fighting games (walking, running, jumping), Project L can perform long jumps and super jumps, as well as bounces. The last players will be able to chain together to quickly travel long distances while trying to avoid damage from enemy AoE attacks.
The developers focus on the ease of use of the abilities of the heroes and the ability of the player to significantly increase the destructive power of attacks, if they are correctly combined with the features of the movement system.
The authors also said that they originally planned Projest L as a game in which characters fight one on one, but decided to reconsider their approach and add a tag system to it, which allows them to call a pre-selected auxiliary character. This will not only make it possible to diversify the gameplay with various bundles of abilities, but also significantly increase the entertainment of fights.
The developers have not even announced a tentative release date for Projest L, noting that the next demonstration of the game will take place in 2023.
