Hello, this is ASCII, with a quick developer update for Team Kanohi! In this video I’ll be covering 3 topics Status on Trials of the Great spirit, Status on Legacy Masks of Power, and an update on our team. First on the List is Trials of the Great Spirit. The project is now in Pre-Alpha, meaning we don’t have all of the code and gameplay finished, but we know what’s left and how to do it. Currently the last of the Toa abilities are being completed, and will be followed up with a polishing pass to make them

look and sound more interesting. As of now the movement abilities are all working, and only 2 remaining masks are needed for playtesting. Combat still requires work on elemental powers, as well as polish, but is otherwise very stable and has few bugs. When the character abilities are playable, the remainder of the trials will be designed and playtested internally. During the trial playtesting period, developers will continue work on a few other areas like, updating the HUD, the save/load system, and adding in a few placeholder art assets. When these all come together, we should be ready for release 1 of TOGS. We will keep our roadmap updated regularly if you want to see daily progress and more specific details on our to-do list. Link to the roadmap will be in the description and in our Discord. Next, an update on the current state and future of Legacy. At the moment, the Legacy team is working on a large update to the game. After this next release, we will be working on smaller, more frequent updates. Including the one we’re working on now, these will each be themed around different regions of Mata-Nui – such as Po-Wahi and Ta-Wahi and will include new areas to explore and changes to existing environments. We’ll be improving villages and adding quests, as well as interesting landmarks with hidden secrets. In these updates, we’ll also be making changes to assist new and current players such as adding a Tutorial and a much requested Map. We hope to have a new release out as soon as possible, with smaller themed updates following in the future. Third on our list is a special call to action for the creatives in the Bionicle community. We are in need of more team members and are ready to expand! Currently the roles we’re looking to fill are: 3D Artists with experience in organic and environment modeling 3D artists for character props and hard surface modeling 2D concept artists for both props and environments Character animators Level designers and artists familiar with UE4 Sound designers and producers and Programmers Familiar with VFX in Unreal Engine 4, using Cascade or Niagara We’ll have a link to the application form in the description, and we look forward to hearing your responses! As always, thanks supporting us and the project, and may the great spirit guide you.

TheKowHunter · February 22, 2020 at 12:23 am

This looks great so far!

Patrick Bonner · February 22, 2020 at 12:24 am

Very excited about all of this!

Looks fantastic.

Charles Painter · February 22, 2020 at 12:28 am

YES this is so good

I know there's SOOOO much work left to do just to even do what's currently being done, and I absolutely love itl

But imagine if one day we had a game where we could explore under the water and discover the Baraki, or into the swamps and fly around as the Mistika 😍

At the very least It would be fantastic to have more playable characters in this game one day, And I mean one day.. As I know this stuff takes a very long time and this is far from finished as it is, I don't want to rush you guys at all! What you're doing is fantastic!

Would be awesome to play as other Toa one day though, or other Bionicle characters at all.

My biggest problem with the Legacy version so far is just that I keep spawning underneath the ground πŸ™ but I've discovered that it doesn't do it if I only save in the upper overworld and not in other areas.

Also the game is pretty empty in a lot of areas but I know the game is far from finished and being reworked so I'm not complaining at all.

I would love to see the final game be a Zelda BotW Light!

Dr.J · February 22, 2020 at 1:43 am

This is the single most amazing fan project I think I have ever seen.

the nerd shack · February 22, 2020 at 2:13 am

This sort of stuff is my lifeblood. I love seeing games come together, it motivates me to continue with my projects. Amazing work.

Minigun101 · February 22, 2020 at 2:16 am

Looking awesome. You guys probably already know this, but the attack impacts definitely could sound/look better as it still seems like you're swatting air atm.

LuketheDuke 424 · February 22, 2020 at 5:22 am

If this kind of game was put into a MMO RPG format I would seriously pay big money to play it. Imagine making your own Matoran, transforming into a Toa, and going across the Matoran Universe having adventures. Think of all the possibilities with weapons, armor, and even species customization. One can only dream

ManiacHybrid · February 22, 2020 at 5:27 am

Normally I'd say "can't wait to play it", but I'll wait all the time is needed, this really looks like a lot of work. You guys are doing such an amazing job, keep it up!

Kenji87 · February 22, 2020 at 9:22 am

Oh, this looks so good. Any idea when it'll be out?

Tita Dou · February 22, 2020 at 10:11 am

When you're useless and you can't help πŸ™

i tegsy · February 22, 2020 at 10:33 am

Amazing news, thank you for your work!

Bionic-Tale · February 22, 2020 at 2:06 pm

Its been awhile since you last updated.

RAMPAGEBOY deflect canon · February 22, 2020 at 3:06 pm

Can't WAIT

Eric Schuller · February 22, 2020 at 4:17 pm

I'd love to do any voice work you may want to include in the game.

CallanLoF · February 22, 2020 at 7:37 pm

So I'm curious about the connections between Team Kanohi and Masks of Power if there are any. Is there a plan to implement the models and animations of Team Kanohi into the maps of Mask of Power, or are they completely separate entities?

The LEGO Life studios · February 22, 2020 at 9:46 pm

Keep it up! πŸ™‚

ezustsilver · February 22, 2020 at 10:50 pm

Oh yeah, you are the best!!!
