Pioneers will be a turn-based game with RPG elements. It's a game where you start by assembling your exploration party with men with different abilities and skills. Every man counts and every skill counts. You need someone who's good with weapons and hunting, someone who is good with carpentry, someone who can draw maps, someone who could easily learn native languages and so on. Once that's done, you put them on a ship and head for some unknown land. Read More...
So, what is this game about? Well it's a turn based exploration game with some RPG elements where you lead a party of pioneers each with different professions, skills and attributes. You start out in a town where you first have to assemble your party from the tavern, plan out and buy equipment you need from the supply store and get yourself a ship. Or two. Then by conversing with different people you get quests, which may be to follow the steps of the previous explorers that never came back and find out what happened, find treasures, compose an accurate map, find contact with unknown native tribes and 'export' religion or simply be the first to disover a piece of the world. You do all that while surviving the harsh environments with seasons that change each bringing with them a different set of challenges, fighting wildlife and tribespeople, finding food and water and trying not to die of dysentery. With each part of the world you discover, you gain access to larger regions further away from home. It's not that you couldn't go there to begin with but you need more men and supplies, which means you need to collect more wealth beforehand.
What else can you do? One crucial, sort of, aspect of the game will be communication. You see, when you encounter an unknown tribe you are not able to understand them because they speak an unknown language. All foreign communication in the game takes place in form of icons/symbols/glyphs that you have to decipher. To make the players life easier, animals and tribes both share the same system. When you see a wolf start to attack you and this certain icon appears over its head you better remember this, because when you interact with some tribes and the same icon appears, you know you better get out of there.
Greetings, fellow adventurers.
I'm very happy to announce that a new build is now available. It fixes several issues found in the last version but also introduces a lot of new content and gameplay features. For example along with a simple introduction to the story there is now a basic tutorial mode introducing the core gameplay mechanics.
What else has been added? In more technical aspects terrain now has height, which has its advantages and disadvantages. Higher ground offers greater range of visibility but isn't always the easiest to reach and ofen blocks your way. Quest system has also been rewritten in Lua, eventually allowing you to make your own quests.
In graphics and audio department the campsite and brig now have their own screens. Two new headbobbing tunes have also found their way into the game. That is nearly 30 minutes of original soundtrack now!
