Music Spotlight – The Plan

G’day folks, it’s been a while!

When we set about starting work on Wargroove: Double Trouble, we realised new Commanders would be a must, and new Commanders would need new music. Bringing Phonetic Hero back into the fold was the obvious decision; especially since he had done such an excellent job on the original soundtrack.

As the Double Trouble campaign centers on the Outlaws and performing heists, Phonetic Hero initially sought to tap into a similar energy to that of the Outlaw’s original track, “Cheeky Ruckus“. Eventually we steered the commanders’ tracks in a slightly different direction, but we thought this first effort was too good to not use, so now it serves as something of a main theme for Double Trouble, featuring during the planning phase of every mission in the campaign. It is my pleasure to present the finished track, “The Plan”, right here!

This song, and all the others we’re adding with Double Trouble will be available for purchase shortly after the DLC launches. Phonetic Hero has continued to bring us really varied and high quality tracks, so I’m looking forward to sharing more of them with you guys soon! In the meantime you could always listen to the full original soundtrack over on our YouTube channel, or it’s also available for purchase so you can listen to it whenever you like!

Until next time!

Double Trouble Role Call!

Hi everyone!

I hope you’re all suitably excited for the upcoming *free* DLC, Wargroove: Double Trouble! We’re getting closer to the stage of being able to announce a release date, but in the meanwhile let’s get you better acquainted with the voice talent behind Double Trouble’s new Commanders. You’ll soon be hearing their fantastic taunts and warcries on the battleground. If you want a reminder of the original Wargroove voice cast, you can find out more in our previous Role Call blog.

Adrian Vaughan as Wulfar
Adrian has lent his voice to a rag-tag collection of characters in video games such as Crawl, Armello, Paradigm, Budget Cuts 1 & 2, and the upcoming adventure titles Harold Halibut and The Drifter. He’s also appeared in a handful of award-winning competition titles he’s quietly proud of, plus some radio/TV commercials. When he’s not doing his best to be all kinds of sinister or gruff, Adrian spends his time writing bios in the third person – ’cause nobody else will.

Holy Smokes!

Hey everyone, we’re back!

We had an amazing week at EGX showing off Wargroove: Double Trouble to the public for the very first time. Along the way we gathered some feedback, got to meet some amazing members of our community and genuinely had a brilliant experience sharing what’s in store for the DLC.

We’re also incredibly excited that PS4 and Switch versions of the Wargroove Deluxe Edition physical copies will be hitting stores globally tomorrow, so make sure to check out retailers such as Amazon, GAME, GameStop, JB Hi Fi, Micromania, ShopTo, fnac, MediaMarkt, Argos and more!

The Deluxe Edition includes a load of free goodies, such as a downloadable version of the Wargroove soundtrack by Phonetic Hero and Boss Battle Records, a Commander sprite sticker sheet, a poster map of Aurania (Outlaw version!), a mini strategy manual with stats and tips on all units (available in English, French, Italian, German & Spanish) as well as a reversible coversheet!

This will be our very first in-house game to get physical release and wouldn’t have happened without the amazing support we received for the game’s digital launch, so thank you from all the team here for getting us to this amazing milestone.

But enough about that – let’s get into the Commander Spotlight!

As you may have seen earlier this month, we revealed more info on what’s coming with the free Double Trouble DLC, including the new Outlaw Commander, Vesper!

Sly, deceitful and abrasive, Vesper certainly makes an impression – this notorious criminal is capable of conjuring a demonic smoke beast with just a whip and a flourish. A real bête noire, n’est-ce pas?

Vesper is the main antagonist in our brand new co-op story campaign. Fresh from kidnapping someone close to Wulfar and the twins, Vesper demands a hefty ransom for their return. Wulfar, Errol and Orla must raid the Imperial Palace of Heavensong, The Stone Mountain Fort of Felheim, The Celandine Vault of Cherrystone and the Floran’s Iron Root reserves… It’s a heist, for all the gold in Aurania!

Vesper’s groove ‘Smoke Shroud’ sees her shrouding an area of the map in thick, magical smoke. Units within this area cannot be targeted or counter-attacked for one turn. 

Vesper’s Smoke Shroud has a slow charge speed, but is immensely powerful if placed correctly. When using it in the thick of battle, players should seek to gain an additional first attack advantage.

That’s all we have to share for now, we will be streaming a first look at Double Trouble’s map editor on Wednesday via the ChucklefishLive Twitch channel, so make sure to follow us there for a notification when we go live. You can also follow updates about Wargroove: Double Trouble and Wargroove in general on Twitter, our forums, the Wargroove subreddit, and the wiki!

Until next time!
