Steamhounds version 0.4.0 “Automaton” is here! So what’s changed you ask? Here’s the breakdown.
- New character: Prototype 6
- Ability and balance tweaks
- Minor bug fixes / performance improvements
The big update here, of course, is the introduction of a new character: Prototype 6 (name not permanent). This is part of the team’s effort to transition into a new development cycle where new content will be available every few weeks for players to try out. So be on the lookout for more content in the weeks to come, and let us know what you think!
New Character: Prototype 6
Character 6’s main tactic requires a skill called “Place Totem” which places an object (“Totem”) on an enemy tile. This object can then be manipulated to deal damage and inflict a speed debuff status effect. Keep in mind – one major bonus to this skill is that the object will block out enemies from occupying the same tile that it’s placed on. Certainly, positioning is a key element to consider here.
