NostalgiCO have given a new update about their long-in-development action-adventure game Cryamore. This new update is rather sizeable in nature and covers developments of NPCs, schedules and how they work with the day & night cycle. The team also discuss new characters, abilities and surveys for backers. To check out the full update head on over to the Kickstarter page here.
MORE ON NPCs & SCHEDULES Since the list of NPCs in the game is pretty much finalized, a couple members of the team have been working on the schedules of the various NPCs in the game. How do the schedules work? To those unaware and a reminder, Cryamore has a Day & Night system that works in tandem with the clock displayed on the Info HUD. The clock advances 15 minutes at 30 intervals and after a 24 hour cycle, a new day begins.
Cryamore is about a spunky bookworm who goes by the name of Esmyrelda Maximus! Cryamore is a mineral discovered by her early settlers on Noka Island to replace the now-ancient steam-powered technology. It was later found out that they could be used as elemental catalysts to power a wide variety of things, even humans. But this is causing an imbalance on the island, causing monsters to appear out of nowhere and sapping the town\’s resources. Since Esmy (the nickname she prefers to be called) is passionate and a good candidate for Cryamore research, she\’s commissioned by the Town Council Chief to search for alternate Cryamore resources, which spirals into a much more ominous dilemma.
