I'm still at work on the project. I've completed the outlines for 33 levels! Mind you, so far, I'm just working on the architecture, though there is some texturing and spritework done. I'm also still looking for someone to provide voice acting for the protagonist. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.

I finally got around to correcting that fix in the Shrine of Elemental Destiny level where the door at the hedgemaze still wasn't unlocked after flipping all five switches. Now you can finally complete the level without cheating! I apologize if it took so long to achieve.

Been a while since my last update. And I want all fans to know that I am still working on this installment.
So far, I have been working on level outlines. I have sixteen of them done so far, that's a third of the project done. By level outlines, I mean I have only done a little bit of texturing and spritework, but the archetecture of those levels is complete. So stay tuned for more updates in the future.

Judgiollas suffers the worst as it is the kingdom from which the Hands of Despair have their main base, cutting them off from the rest of the realm. As a result, rumors spread throughout the remaining five kingdoms of Iconoclast, Dunkilus, Tamirtania, Arcanius, and Naphorphia that Judgiollas is in league with the enemy, further isolating them. No one is more troubled than Murlock who fears and suspects that his brother Raven Dark has escaped the magical curse that imprisoned him at the conclusion of the Scourge War.
As his efforts uplift the spirit of the people, Vincent finds himself the primary target of the Hands of Despair, as well as uncovering a conspiracy within the royal family of Iconoclast, romancing Estella who becomes Murlock's apprentice, discovering a family that he never knew existed, and slowly uncovering the secrets of Engelbert, who is revealed to have formerly lived in this world. Through it all, he slowly rediscovers a renewed purpose and new reason to live.

Part 3 will be entitled "Valiant Destiny" and will reintroduce us to Vincent Valiant Orbison from the original as the protagonist. He is Logan's great grand-son. Other known character from the original will appear including Estella and Valkereye, who like Vincent will all have improved characterization.
Part 3's story will be darker and more epic than that of Unfinished Business. The game will have more than twenty-eight levels, making it larger than part 1 or 2. Unlike the original, there will be a few levels set on Earth. Ideas I have so far for maps include the following, some of which have not been seen yet in the series (or the history of the Build engine) so far:
-lakes and streams
-shrines and temples
New characters introduced to the remake are Estella's mother and two older sisters, the oldest of which is a half-sister and a minor antagonist, several members of the resistance, and a couple of restless spirits.
On my next post, I'll release the plot.

But fear not faithful Bloodlites. This does not mean I will cancel plans for the third and final part in the remake trilogy. As you all know, the original LOI3 was considered the best in the trilogy. It was the biggest and the largest segment of the trilogy. And the same will happen with the remake to LOI3.
Continuing the tradition of Scourge of Humanity and Unfinished Business, part 3 will be made better. The story will be improved, as will level design. I'm still gathering ideas for the story, but in the end, the story will be more complex than that of Unfinished Business. Who knows? I may need more than twenty eight levels.
Part 3 will introduce us to a familiar hero from the original (no, not Caleb as he's more of an anti-hero and a lot of people didn't like his transformation to a hero in the original). Part 3 will tie up the loose ends left at the end of Unfinished Business. Like Unfinished Business, most of the levels will be remade or even replaced altogether and adding new levels. There will be new music, new sounds, and the overall game will be more complex, epic, and darker. The story will introduce new characters not seen in the original LOI3, and those who appeared will be redone.
Overall, it will be a worthy and satisfying conclusion to the LOI remake trilogy.
