Mounts, Tigers and Bears! Oh MY! (but mainly just mounts)
After an amazing first 24 hours, with over 900K raised in pledges, we wanted to share with you some concept art for the reward mounts in our kickstarter packages.
These mounts will only be available to backers of our project and will be pretty awesome in game.
They will stand out in some unique ways, with particle fx and unique emissives on the models.
Let's start with the White Runic Steed
This Runic Steed has emissive textures on it's body that glow, along with particle FX that come from it's mane and tail.
The Obsidian Stallion is also covered in emissive runes that glow with power. While this mount runs, its hooves will emit fire FX on the ground around it.
The Spectral Mare is a ghostly beauty. The textures on this mount have a degree of transparency, and a mist FX flow from the creature into the wind.
The Moonstrider Mule, is a hybrid mule that acts as a slower mount though also allows for the transit of goods (on a much smaller scale than the caravan system) and this little guy has some cool saddle bag animations on his sides that show the contents moving around during movement
Finally, we have the Dawnbreaker Mount. This mount has the ability to glide through the air, and has a shimmering emissive that glows on its wings in many colors. It stands larger than other mounts of its type. The Dawnbreaker also emits a dust particle FX that comes from its wings on takeoff and landing.
But probably the coolest aspect of the Dawnbreaker, is its ability to change colors based on the player's mood.
I hope you all have enjoyed a look into the mounts of our reward packages!
We are all so happy to have each of you on board! Keep an eye out for an update to our stretch goals and we will also be adding backer goals soon!
