If I told you we've been working hard this week, all of us... would you believe me? You need proof, don't you? Alright, but first you need one bit of information that was never made public... and it's not a spoiler. From time to time, I get asked "does the story take place in the world of Midora?". No it doesn't. Midora is not the name of the world! Midora is more complex than that, and there will be several islands for the entire story. So what's the main island? Where does Snow begin her journey? Here's the answer you've been waiting for...
WELCOME TO EVEREST
Home to 80% of the world's population, this island has 3 cities: Cloudview, Miracle (King City) and Port Blue. It also has two small towns: Seawind and Ancestra. The island was named after the Great Dragon Everest who died during the ancient war, sacrificing himself to maintain the earth's balance using his colossal body.
If you want to know more, you'll have to play the game... or you could just wait patiently for another kickstarter update. Up to you!
The Artezian Haven
Our master pixel artist Zhi is back and started to work on the place that will serve as a hub in the Early Access version: the Artezian Haven. The haven is a very relaxing refuge where Snow will be able to focus and learn new skills, craft a few items, cook and even create runes!
Here's a sneak peek of a recent sketch, soon to be 100% pixel art:
Speaking of rune crafting... do any of you know how this works? I can tell you a few things about the process. It involves a table, a rock, a hammer and a spell scroll. Then magic happens.. oh my, another preview!
Sooo we promised to show the new particle system and wanted to post a gif... turns out, we're making a little video instead! You can expect that video to be up on our YouTube channel soon, perhaps before the next kickstarter update.
We'll leave you with one last screenshot though! Have a look at some rain created entirely with code!
See you in the next update, coming this weekend!
