I wanted to make a devlog post highlighting some of the changes before we launch the early access version, which should happen in one or two weeks, if nothing goes wrong.
Most stories in the game take place in certain neighborhoods of New Wenders. There will be two of them available for the Early Access launch: Downtown and East-side (the first one being the one that was on the game jam version).
But some stories will unfold – in part or entirely – in smaller areas, like a diner. One specific diner, called Tangerine:
And speaking of coffee, you might also run into some not-so-pleasant encounters.
The new neighborhood, East-side, is very different from Downtown. It’s darker, the buildings are not so nice and there are no trees or small parks around.
As for the stories, the early access version will feature four of them (so about 10% of the total planned for the full game, most of which is already written as of now), with different characters, in three different locations.
I will have an FAQ done before launch detailing more of what’s going to change with every update, but basically the idea is to add new stories and fix/improvements based on feedback. The price of the game will also go up as we make meaningful updates, so that’s also a big incentive to get it early =)
