Weekly edition of the Winterfall Vlog. Every Thursday a bit of talk about the work, the story, the discipline and the journey. The raw version of this Vlog is published earlier on our Patreon and then formatted for Youtube for publishing on Thursdays.

In this first edition (a little longer than expected), we deal with topics like gratitude, origins, how things got started, the necessary sacrifices, betrayal, game dna, and the plan.

Greetings, As of our ongoing work to rebuild Winterfall by reimplementing, improving or fixing our old mechanics, during the past week, we have updated the Combat build on several points.

This work goes towards the next Combat Build release, scheduled for the 28th.

This week, we would also like to thank our new Patrons: - Eryn

https://www.patreon.com/posts/52531521 We've just published our original combat alpha to Patreon. It's FREE and accessible to all. It serves as a prelude. We will then, periodically, publish backer updates to this build: further combat improvements, inventory & equipment, tasks, character customization, etc. We will basically reintegrate, over time, all our systems together through this line of builds. **If you have already backed us previously, don't worry: we'll give you access to those backer updates.** Controls are listed in the Patreon's post's text. Enjoy and let us know if you managed to defeat all 30 opponents!
