    Greetings again from the LTD 2 team! Spring is sneaking up on us and we've been making exciting headway all across the board. Today, we want to focus on a character that you'll put everything on the line for. Today, we want to show you the King.

    As you know, the King is the centerpiece of every game... only one will survive. In the original LTD, the King had a somewhat generic feel and very little story to indicate why he was worth protecting. We're making a big effort with LTD 2 to make the kings into characters worthy of the game.

    We don't want to go too far into background and lore just yet, but we do want to show you where the King will reside. Check out some concept art for the king's throne room below!

    In addition, this month we've been modeling the environment and making some big steps forward on sound. March will be one of the busiest months yet and we look forward to more major leaps and bounds for content. As always, stay tuned for updates!

    Also of note: this week is the 2015 Game Developers Conference in San Francisco and several members of the AutoAttack Games team will be in attendance! We expect it to be a whirlwind couple of days with some great events and opportunities.

    Is the game really coming out in 2015? I mean these are just sketches, so in my opinion best case scenario this year is very early access, no? ( And by very early I mean super very early )

    Excellent work guys, I wish there was a way to help speed the process up because I can't wait! Lol

    If you need a alpha/beta tester, I've done many before. Well give detailed reports. I'd love to help anyway I can.

    Keep up the good work guys

    I like the overall art style but I'm not a fan of this model. Looks way too feminine....pink, seriously?(Not saying King's can't rock pink but cmon.) I literally thought it was a Queen model at first or something. literally reminded of this when i saw it pink.jpg Perhaps its the cloth/robe whatever but it looks too elegant for a King. More box/ rough edge aesthetic would give it a more masculine feel. rounded and curves and more feminine.

    im not saying the color, or outfit couldnt work but there needs to be some tweaking. As it stands I more reminded of Shiva from Final Fantasy or soemthing

    @strider LoLz at your pink power ranger reference.
    I would just say, have faith the these guys know what they're doing. These are crude versions of what in game look will be like. Plus, i wouldn't mind a queen, i'd feel more inclined to protect my lady :p

    Thanks for the feedback! We definitely have a lot of options color-wise and those sorts of tweaks are likely to happen as we get farther in, especially when placing units on screen together. For now, keep the comments coming!

    This model is nice and looks quite handsome but personally me prefer more conservative concept

    Up to me its modern king concept like Shao Kan from Mortal Combat:)

    hey guys, work looks awsome!
    wonder if you already thought about king skills? maybe even of adding some more? maybe the ability to choose?
    really excited!
