Hardest campaign I ever played. It can be beaten [section]without Holy Brothers [/section]though, but you will [section]still [/section]have to pray to Random Number God, even with Predictable setting. The story is decent, just too short. There is a few bugs, the first which prevents unit from gaining experience by killing enemies if their death triggers a movement right after the last breath, the second:

Changes for TYPOs are highlighted like this:

My suggestions: make more difficulty levels, final breath before death animation,

I didn't aim for achievements, so there are holes where bugs can wait :D .

Wow, that's some quick feedback!


First of all, thanks for the bug report, proofreading and replays, very helpful. :D

The campaign can be very challenging at times. It was supposed to be. The campaign is quite short, but that is why it has to be intense and emotional in terms of story and gameplay. Anyway, I think that creating two new, easier difficulty levels is a good idea, and I will definitely think about it if I have more time to spare.

Holy Brothers were intended to be a great help to the player and a generous reward for exploration, as well as for those who could have problems finishing the campaign. They are Holy Brothers after all! ;)

Also, I like the idea of plot-extending scenarios, but I would need to take my time to see what ideas I could come up with.

I just released a new version 1.0.4 with the proofreading you made. I am not a native speaker and I really appreciate when someone helps me with this. I have included you in the end credits under Label - Text Proofreading, of course if you don't mind.

Recenty played this and it was really fun! The story was good, even though their were a few errors in the text. Here are my changes, which you are free to use or drop! All I did was change the prose, and add a bit of my own twist to the story. I also added difficulties! If you want to view my changes please go to https://github.com/DuncanusDillius/Wave ... ant-Shore

Hi, DuncanDill

It's nice that you enjoyed the campaign.


Thanks for the suggestion, but I'm not going to change the text and dialogues. I only want to improve the grammar and typos in them. Above all, I want them to be in my literary style.

The same goes for gameplay and new difficulty levels. For example, I'm not going to add Mermaid Initiates to Nodirtos recruitment list for lore and gameplay reasons. As for new difficulty levels, I will also take care of that myself to do it to the best of my skills.

Yup! That's fine, as I said this is just how I would do it. Just to say, I did fix a few of the grammar problems with tense and plural

I'm stuck on the final scenario, turn 14, the tower at 16,5 is not accessible to anyone :(

Also, what is a Holy Brother? Did I miss something on an earlier level?

I guess you started the final scenario before updating the campaign to version 1.0.5? What you are talking about is a big bug that I removed yesterday in version 1.0.5. It is written in the changelog up your message.

To get rid of this bug, you need to update the campaign to the latest version and start the scenario from the very beginning.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Holy Brothers are very powerful support units that are obtainable during the Siren Chant scenario. They have their own lines of dialogue and events. They are very helpful during the game.

I hope you are enjoying the campaign.

Thanks for the tips, I'll update and start over! Yes, short and fun campaign. I'm not one for heavy dialogue but I really enjoyed the poetic passages. Great work!
