YANTH WBW Update #4

Posted by Donn Manalili (Creator)

Hello ladies and gents!

Since the last update I've pushed out a new build onto Steam for you all to try out. It's opened up the world map, the winged zephyr, and the magic academy. It's also enabled multiple new achievements, and allowed access to three of the main endings you can achieve early on. The complicated nature of the airship has led to quite a lot of debugging with the help of some of you guys and some early access players.

I've gotten into the rhythm of pushing out a new build after squishing multiple bugs. You can see some back and forth bug hunting if you visit the steam community forum for YANTH. Apart from that, I've been working on a lot of pixel art for the elven village Ein Toer, and fleshing out the main plotline for the area. There isn't too much to talk about at the moment, so I'll leave it at that and just upload a few pixel money shots here for you.

In regards to the DRM free version, that will still be released along with the finished version of the game. Will update again in a bit!


First time working on spiral stairs, had a lot of fun experimenting with the perspective and layout. 

This one was a bit of a challenge, I couldn't figure out how to get the perspective right without some time away from the computer. Just needed a little bit of common sense and light arithmetic :3

      Do you have an update on the actual progress towards the finished game? Earlier you had an infographic with %bars showing how much of each portion of the game was complete. Wondering when I can play the finished product.

      Allo! I was wondering where I might get the steam key for the newest WIP? I don't believe I got an email before.

      Wow, I was going to post the same thing as Maud Donker. Definitely someone who is ahead of the curve.

      I am glad to see that this has taken a complete 180 turn around from silence to more regular updates. Keep it up! :)

      Looks good. :) On a different note, will the forum be fixed anytime soon? I get an Error 403 when I try to access it. Also, if Kritter is here, please PM me.

      It all looks so interesting. I am looking foreward to it and of course I want it to be the best it can be, so take what time you need with it. And thank you for the update on the DRM version. That's all I need to know about that, that it will be out when the completed version is done. Makes sense to me.
