Watch: Shadowhand Dev Offers Peek At Card Combat

On the cards

Hello! I'm back from holiday and easing myself back into the week by watching a developer video about the dueling in upcoming highwaywoman solitaire combat game, Shadowhand [official site].

Here's the vid which focuses on taking down some jerk called Rich Turnpike who wields two blunderbusses. Blunderbii?

I've seen the game at an earlier stage of development but it's interesting to hear Jake Birkett (one half of Grey Alien) talk about the actual mechanics relating to the weaponry - piercing damage, time to charge up weapons and so on. There's also a smidge of info about how the enemy AI works which was interesting for me because last time I spoke to them that was still something that was being debated and refined.

Shadowhand is due for release pretty soon - "Summer 2016" - although speaking from a British perspective that season is always the most elusive. I feel like we could more accurately say that the game has a release date of "During the weeks of slightly warmer rain which people spend their time trying to guess when it might abate in order to attempt a trip to the beach or mow the blasted lawn 2016".
