RPG Vault has posted their 17th installment of their series of Q&As with the people at Reflexive about Lionheart. This one asks about the developer's favorite elements from the game's critical path.
Well, I really like the Lava Trolls hidden in the depths underneath Barcelona. I'm sure they have some cool story reason why they are there, but I just like to kill things, and they are fun to fight. They have a visual appealing "stomp" that splashes lava out from underneath their feet that does intense fire damage to anyone near them. Not only do I think it looks great, but I wrote the effect, so I am doubly happy with it. Anyway, it is great to get a couple of them in a room with you and just kick their ass with lava spraying out in all directions.
I'm all for gory and/or interesting death animations, but based on the demo and other information, maybe a little less time should have been spent on combat.
