The newest build of Tower of London features auto save. You may leave any game playthrough where you are still alive and come back to it later by selecting ‘Continue’ from the title screen, or start over by selecting ‘New Game’. Additionally, after starting a new game you will be prompted to choose a name for your character and select a class from a drop down menu. Class’s are very limited in implementation at the moment, and for now will just change the name of your skill option to reflect which class you chose (ie: ninjas will have a ‘Ninjutsu’ command).
Somewhat more importantly, I’m experimenting with fog of war in the new build. Now, the player cannot see anything in the dungeon other than their own location, the location of the floor boss, and the empty tiles which show where you’ve already been. This change reduces visual clutter as per some feedback from testers, and also adds more mystery to the dungeon run throughs.
Work has also been done on an ‘event’ system, that will eventually enfold everything other than battles that you encounter in a dungeon such as traps and treasure, amoung other things.
