Yes, I do have prior coding experience. I have a Computer Science degree and I used to develop educational children games before I moved on to developing games for the mainstream players.
For Knights and Glory, the most challenging part of the development comes in the form of design and level balancing. We need to make sure that the difficulty is just enough for players to be able to continue and progress in the game, but difficult enough so that they see some challenge in it.

Personally, the game is inspired from other games that we have played in the past. The battle is highly inspired by the battle in the Langrisser series as well as Dragon Force (Sega Saturn). There are some influences as well from Ogre Battle.
These games are classic strategy games that I grew up playing and have always wanted to develop something similar to it.
As for why I love those games, that’s easy. They are one of the leading turn-based strategy games in the market back in the days and I have always had soft spots for TBS games, so it’s natural for me to enjoy the games.
For Knights and Glory, the development itself took about a year to develop, but it has been improved slowly, but surely throughout the 2 years plus since it was released.
We have seen plenty of strategy games in the market on the play store. However, from what we have seen, most of the strategy games that are in the market now require a certain amount of attention when playing.
We want to create a strategy game that is light enough to play without much attention, but deep enough for strategy gamers to enjoy it. This explains the battle system that we have in the game, currently.
You only need to choose the units to counter the enemy. Once the battle starts, you can leave it alone and let it run while you do other things until the battle is over. On the other hand, for a more serious strategist, they can choose to watch and analyze the battle to understand the result better.
With such gameplay mechanic, we believe that we are able to fill in the gap between casual and hardcore strategy games.
As mentioned above, I believe the battle mechanic is what sets our game apart from other strategy games. Knights and Glory uses a battle mechanic that is chest-like in which players choose units and their quantity to the battle to fight against a pre-set quantity of enemy units.
To win the battle, it requires a good knowledge of each unit's ability and skills as well as the way to counter them.
We are going to add more chapters in the single player campaign as well as increase the maximum level of each unit cards. New units will be considered as well in the near future.
