[Road to Wolfenstein] Devblog 08 | Replay Value

The process of bugfixing and improving our previous chapters of Blade of Agony is something that we have already written about. We want a polished final product with the release of Chapter 3. This also means that we consider ways to enhance the replay-value of our project. In times of Youtube and Twitch, the competition spirit has been revived a lot.

At the beginning of the development, I decided to get rid of the intermission sequence. It didn't make sense to have this atmosphere-breaking mechanique as it was used to be in the original Doom engine.

The idea of a mission summary in the Allied Headuarter was born and AFADoomer turned these thoughts into a feature.

After each mission you will be able to check this blackboard: How many kills did I have? How much bounty did I collect? How many secrets did I find and how long I am already playing this mod?
