Looking good!

Your #femcrunch was an excellent idea, I hope it inspires others to make more inclusive games.

It looks epic! I do have one question, what are the requirements for a famous person in history to be added.Cough.DaVinc.Cough.Shakespeare. Cough.

:D Can't wait for it to be finish.

The developers were targeting a certain time period. (late 1800s - early 1900s?) Shakespeare and Da Vinci would make great characters, but lived before that target era.

Some small updates:

  • We increased the size of our tiles slightly
  • We added a new effect when uncovering new tiles
  • Added a XP Bonus system. The more tiles you uncover in one go, the more you build up towards an XP bonus
  • Added a far-sight distance that uncovers field-types to make your traveling better plannable - however, you won't see objects (villages etc) until you really uncover the tile
  • There is a preview of what kind of object (e.g. a village / mission, treasure spot) can be found in a certain region, without a specific knowledge as to where exactly it is

A small travel gameplay video showing the new tile size and uncovering effect:

Love the theme of this game. I came across an image which made me think of your game today.

Thanks for the link, that is indeed a very nice picture.

However, even though it's really hard, we don't want to be a steampunk game. There are already enough of those :-)

Fair enough, but can you at least include a flying Rishi dude? Wink
In seriousness though, I'm happy you're not going too steampunk with it. The setting is all the more special for sticking closer to your historical 'guns.'

There is a preview of what kind of object (e.g. a village / mission, treasure spot) can be found in a certain region, without a specific knowledge as to where exactly it is

I think this is a very nice idea, and something I want to implement for URR. The kind of thing you'd get if you'd talked to travelers, or other explorers, who knew there was [Thing] roughly in [Direction], but didn't know (or hadn't been able to record) its exact location. One other thought - I'm planning to have maps as actual items you can collect and they will fill in a part of the world map, but you won't know which part of the world map they've filled in, beyond a general direction. Are you thinking of having anything similar, like maps from past explorers which might fill in small areas of the unknown, etc?

Yes, we have had a lot of different attempts at conveying this kind of "imperfect" information about areas of the world. What you see in the animated gif is the latest, and so far best working approach, considering the other elements of the game such as the general structure of the world and what role the indicated objects have for gameplay.

Concerning the maps, yes, we tossed around the idea of having maps. But I think the way we envisioned them would be more into the traditional treasure-map direction, with "dig between the 3 mountains which are surrounded by jungle and river fiels" kind of thing. However, this has not been taking beyond the pure "hey that would be neat" phase just yet :-)

Just out of curiosity Smiley how are those fantastic elements like dinosaurs and prehistoric areas introduced storywise? Are they known part of the world, is there time travelling involved or are these prehistoric creatures simply endemic to mysterious, isolated regions discovered by the player?

The biomes look great! One thing I noticed is that the rocks are the same for all of them. Are you going to make different rock formations for each one? =]
