130w ago - Big Sandwich Games Design Director Tyler Sigman has announced news of a new Hoard patch coming to PSN alongside a video trailer and free new level details today, as follows:
It's been just over two weeks since HOARD released, and thousands of gamers have been getting their flame on while toasting villages, incinerating knights, crisping thieves, and kidnapping the occasional princess!
Reviews have been overwhelmingly positive, with many surprised at just how addictive and deep the dragon "stratecade" (strategy arcade) experience is.
However, the game was not entirely without its rough edges, and there are a few issues we've been monitoring which need a little tweaking.
Your feedback at HOARDgame.com has been very important to us, and we're happy to confirm that we'll be addressing most of those issues in an upcoming patch!
The patch will include:
• Eye Strain Begone -- We'll be increasing tutorial and badge text size for less squintyness. 20/10 vision no longer required!
• Lasting Friendship -- The multiplayer lobby will now be persistent. After finishing a game, you'll return to the game setup lobby so you can easily play again with...
133w ago - Big Sandwich Games Design Director Tyler Sigman confirmed that Hoard arrives on PSN tomorrow, and shared details on how to train your dragon today for fans alongside a PS3 trophy list.
To quote: HOARD drops tomorrow on PSN, so it's time you start thinking about tuning up your treasure-hunting skills! Here are a few tips to help you get started on your path to becoming a great dragon and racking up some impressive scores:
• Preserve your score multiplier. You lose your score multiplier whenever you are wounded to zero health, and also whenever a thief finishes stealing from your hoard. If you want to earn Gold ratings on maps, you have to avoid losing your score multiplier too much. It's better to fly home and heal before getting wounded all the way to zero. And always keep an eye out for those sneaky burglers.
• Armor up for safety! The denizens of the realm are not friendly. Knights and archers make for challenging foes when they come in groups. While upgrading Speed and Fire Breath are sexy, improving your Armor can be key to good scores. If you find yourself constantly getting injured and sent back to your hoard, you probably need tougher scales! Having a few extra hit points means you can make mistakes and not get punished for it.
