An update about the current progress of Realm Explorer.
Posted by realmsource on May 16th, 2013
Greetings Realm Explorers!
It's been a few weeks since our last massive game patch -- the BIOME Patch -- and a lot more new development has been under way in that time. The dynamically generated realms of the game are starting to become more alive with each passing week. It seems rather appropriate that as the summer months approach that things are really starting to heat up with Realm Explorer.
We've been hard at work on the next big updates for Realm Explorer but we've always got our ear to the community. You guys asked and we listened! Aside from wanting more feature and content patches the number one requested item from the community has been more development updates! We're pleased to announce that starting next week we will be launching a new initiative to post both development news AND videos TWICE A WEEK. We plan to post blog posts detailing everything from the latest feature developments, news from upcoming patches, details of art creation, general game design issues and more. Videos will review features and content from recent patches as well as upcoming content for yet-to-be-released patches.
We have a lot of exciting new stuff that is ready or almost ready for the next few updates that we'll be revealing in the coming weeks. Completely new UI, character customization, major performance improvements and bug fixes, enhancements to crafting, combat, NPCs and a lot more are all in the works.
To conclude this brief announcement we're pleased to share a sneak peek at the completely revamped main menu. We're hard at work completing this new menu and all of the related features -- brand new 3D character customization and character selection feature, key binding, game options and much more. The main menu is the first thing you see when you play a game and we want to have something that looks good and is easy to use.
Please enjoy these screenshots from the concept phase through the first draft of implementation in the game. We're still working on it but we think it's coming along nicely!
