After 18 months of development the epic, narrative driven mod for Aquaria is finally released. Enjoy! Please let me know of any bugs you find as well...
Aquaria: Sacrifice is an extensive, narrative driven prequel campaign featuring prominent characters such as Prince Drask, Mia, Naija, and The Creator. Extending beyond the current Aquaria universe will be the introduction of a number of new characters. One of these is Princess Elena, wife of Prince Drask, which will serve as the new protagonist. Sacrifice features a little over 20 new maps, 10+ short cut scenes, and 2 vendors. Unlike Aquaria the story will be told through a classic adventure dialogue system. The name of the mod, Sacrifice, is related to the individual sacrifices made by each character.
I put together a video on YouTube that shows the new additions (below) but if for some reason you like to read please continue. It should be noted that the world map shown in the video was a very early version that was much improved during beta.
World Map courtesy of some masterful coding work by Edwards with modifications by Yogoda. This was by far the most requested addition and I'm glad to finally include it.
New Level (Naija, Fedor, and Elena go on an Adventure) accessed from the Veil allows Elena (avatar) to ride and control an ancient turtle in exploring this demented map.
Arena System (located in new map) features hardcore combat maps, navigation puzzles (still in development), and a boss rush mode of bosses from the original game. Old Fred keeps track of your best times and more maps are planned to be released in the future.
