Steam Store Live!

6 likes

Hey Everyone!

I'm happy to announce that the Steam store for Arakion is finally live! Be sure to follow the game on Steam, this will help keep you updated and make the discussion board more active!

The release date for Arakion isn't definitive yet, however, the likely launch is Mid-January. The launch may include some fun community events to get everyone even more excited to dive into the game! As soon as there is a precise date set, I'll post an announcement.

Additionally, shortly after launch, I will begin working on backer created content that isn't already in the game (like the backer profession). 

Have a wonderful day, and if you have any questions just let me know!

Hey Everyone!

Arakion has quietly continued development, making massive amounts of progress along the way! Today I want to share with you the Early Access trailer. The Arakion steam store page will be launching soon, with a release planned shortly after (likely mid-January)!

Internal testing is going extremely well and if you would like to join the Discord channel, just send me a message! (I will be gone all of next week for vacation so my response time may be slower)

Enjoy and have a wonderful day!

Minor delay in release

4 likes

Hey everyone!

Due to some personal matters that happened over the last month, there has been a minor delay in the release of Arakion. I was planning on posting a longer update tonight but I want to spend my time working on the game. I'll either post a large update this weekend or next Thursday, the tentative release is now Mid-July.

To tide you over, some screenies of the finalized Prologue

Hey Everyone!

As Arakion inches closer to its June release I wanted to start going over some of the unannounced features. Today I'll be going over upgradable traits. 

More updates will be coming soon as we get closer to launch!

 

Have a wonderful day!

General Update

5 likes

Hey everyone!

Some quick news, Arakion has a tentative release of early June, I'm trying to get it out as quickly as possible but things generally end up taking longer than expected. I'll hopefully be able to post a release date announcement soon. There is a checklist of things I've been going over including making sure saving functions (see Prey) on all machines. I want your playtime in Arakion to be fun, seamless and bug-free to reflect the experience that's intended.  

Because there are so many new and awesome features and bug fixes to go over since my last update, for the sake of settling back into the rhythm of things, today I'll be going over Arakion's updated character creation and Satyr race! 

The character creation has been modified to be easier to use and look visually more appealing, you can see a preview of it in the video provided. 

 

 

 

The Satyr

Satyrs were little-known before the Sky War in Arakion. During the war, they stepped up and became a valuable asset to overcome the Fae. Altruistic in nature, they have near human-like adaptability and this quickly catapulted them to a Great-Race status. As many races vie to replace Humans on the western continent, more and more people look to the Satyr to lead the future. 

The video previews Western Satyr, smaller and more slender than the other races of Arakion, they make up for this by having high adaptability, a stealth-like presence, and unsurpassed vigilance. The Satyr race starts with slightly less Health and Strength but drastically increased Vigilance, making them ideal ranged weapon users, lock-pick specialist and trap disablers

That's it for today, but a lot of updates will be coming soon. Back to work on Arakion for me and I hope you all have a wonderful day!
