Alpha update 0.1.10! Aguamarina Caves + House interiors 🏡

Posted by Crema (Creator)

Work never stops at Crema, so one more week we're here with a new patch for the Alpha!

Aguamarina Caves

The Aguamarina Caves are a complex of caverns that run deep under the Thalassian Cliffs. The better known entrance is through the Sillaro River, but they're so huge they even cross the whole cliffs and connect the river to the upper area of the Indigo lake.

The Caves have five different floors and they include a new gameplay feature: the crystal areas. We don't want to spoil too much, so you'll need to go ahead and discover it by yourself. The crystal areas affect how the player moves through the terrain and they will be very present along the whole Archipelago.

Right now the Caves are a totally optional area to explore and they don't have too much in terms of interesting new Temtem or items. In the future we plan to re-populate them with some more Temtem so they will become the first area in the game where you will be able to obtain them. They will also hold a special and unique shrine you will be able to reach with the climbing equipment...


House Interiors

One of the more prominent features missing from the current Alpha is the option to go inside the houses currently placed on Deniz. This ends today!

With this patch you will be able to visit the houses and talk with the people inside them. Houses are also usually something optional, but they add so much richness to the lore and the overall feeling of the game we wanted to include them as soon as possible.

You'll notice some of the houses are still closed. These houses are "special" places that will open in future updates since they are related to some unavailable features right now. We added an Alpha sign to them so you will know where you can enter or not.

By the way, almost everything you see in the NPC houses will also be available to player housing. We're doing everything as flexible as we can so everything works for the player's houses too.

And more fixes, improvements and new stuff

As usual, there's a lot of things on this patch. We've made a huge number of improvements and fixes including some important ones like improving the initial cinematic flow or making sure the AI uses the rest option when needed in battles. We also managed to find one of the most endearing bugs in the Alpha which caused the NPC tamers to forget about you and ask for a fight constantly.

We also included some new stuff: 4 new Luma species, 9 new Techniques including a new Status Effect, death voices for every Temtem, new sounds here and there... You can read the full patch notes in our forum.

Omninesia and more

As you already know we're still working on the next huge content patch for the Alpha, which will include a whole new Island, new Temtem and several new features. We don't have a fixed date for that content yet, so we will be keeping you posted in the coming weeks.

Also, we're working on having a pre-order option for users who want to buy the game and get instant access to the Alpha. Although it looks like something easy, having a pre-order store implicates a lot of stuff under the roof and we want to make everything right as usual. Please, bear with us while we work on having everything ready!

      @Crema Thank you for replying! That is pretty reassuring.

      With the Nuzlocke question, I was just worried that Temtem might also be dying from battles in the standard mode. If that's not the case, then there's no worry there.

      Suffice it to say, you guys did a great job with Temtem designs! They're so sweet, and I want to protect them!

      @Namadu yeah, that's the internal names. The lore-friendly way to say it would be knockout voices :)

      I'm not sure I understand your question. The Nuzlocke mode is going to be something separate from the main game and you don't need to play it if you don't want it.

      "death voices for every Temtem"

      Wait, wait, what? I thought Temtem battles were supposed to be friendly, not cockfights! I'd chalk it up to being a typo, but considering it's worded the same in the patch notes, I can't help but worry that we're forcing friendly, wonderful creatures to fight to the death...

      Will the Nuzlocke mode still be completely separate, for the highly sensitive backers? I'm very interested in checking out this new content (and finishing up what I haven't completed), but that does really concern me.

      The amount of work you guys put into this game is insane.
      Not to mention the attention and care you give to the players, always keeping us updated and hearing the feedback. You guys make makes Game Freak look like dirt. You guys are amazing, everyone. I can't wait to fix my PC and be able to play the alpha. GG guys, I love all the effort you are putting here ;]

      I have some friends that will be excited about the pre-order possibility :)

      You may want to consider changing that name, “Thalassian”... it’s a Blizzard thing.

      But everything looks great!! You guys are doing some incredible work!

      nice! I hope one of the features is to make NPC more interesting amd the temtems to have more personality, some solid world building - gives people a reason to want to learn insteadly of rapidly pressing A to just collect. I'm hoping you have the most creative AI/NPC/Story and world that separates you from any other monster collecting game.
