Night is Coming is a colorful survival simulation in a miraculous fantasy world. Small humble village is facing a wide variety of deadly threats, including wild beasts, low temperature, starvation and dark forces. No one to trust, nowhere to hide, except for high fences and fortifications – the Carpathians is a severe and gloomy place. Fight monsters, build settlement, improve your skills and gather resources – and you will get a chance to survive dark and cold winters. If not – run away to a more friendly place and use this break to prepare your new settlement better. And beware: the Winter Night’s King is coming after you and bringing frosty nights full of monsters…

Posted by on

In this post we’d like to share our development progress with you.

Titan Vlkodlak concept.
In the world of Night is Coming there are many different creatures. The setting based on Slavic mythology, that’s why most monsters will be familiar to “The Witcher” world.
Now we’re working on the Werewolves (Vlkodlaks) line
Titan Vlkodlak:
- Extremely heavy
- Hulking and slow
- High piercing damage
It is dangerous for both buildings and people, because it deals wide-area damage.

Logman’s hut, hunter’s hut, mill

The Mill is used for producing flour out of wheat. Bread is made of flour, its nourishing and stays fresh for a long time. For there’s no wind in thick forests, the only possible mill type is a river mill. But in winter it’s useless.

Originally there was an idea to let the hunter and the logman live together in one house, because it is easier to survive in isolation, but the community was not enthusiastic about it.
So the classic logman hut and hunter hut remained. Possibly, we’ll change it again during the closed alpha.

Settlement relocation mechanics.
One of the core mechanics of the game is settlement relocation. In most games of the kind the settlement development takes place on one map. To start living on another map, the player has to start a new game and leave upgraded settlement behind.
When we played “Kingdom: New Land”, we totally fell in love with it. If the life on the map becomes unbearable, you can leave for another. In new lands there are new pets, new statues and new NPC’s. We got inspired by the idea.
“Night is Coming” is not only a title, but a set of mechanics, too. Gradual difficulty increasing affecting all game systems: winters become colder, days become darker, monsters’ attacks get fiercer and more frequent, new species of beasts coming, winter substitutes other seasons bit by bit.
When the conditions are too tough, the player can move the settlement to a more friendly land. Certainly, he must be prepared for such a trip, this is a different subject.
There are several ways out of the map. Some will get you to more pleasant and easy-to-survive lands, some other lands are not so friendly. It is up to the player to choose the way, but remember: the Darkness will reach easier maps sooner.
In new lands there will be new skill Masters awaiting, new Elemental Spirits and new mysteries to discover.
The screenshots show a settlement relocation map drafts, and some map generation screens.
Every time you start a campaign, the world is generated randomly, so the plot remains the same, but the world is always new.

Love those settlement relocation mechanics. I'm confused as if there will be some sort of continuity in in-game lore / story after you move to a new settlement. It would be really cool to roleplay as a group of survivors constantly running away from the darkness until they just can't do that anymore!
