'Atajrubah' is the Arabic word meaning (an) 'Experience'. Atajrubah is set in a 1930's to 1940's era and is strongly influenced by Arabian Folklore and Architecture. The world is open for the player to explore either on their own or with their friends. Using the Oculus Rift for full immersion the player will discover hidden secrets and deadly enemies in a colorful and rich fantasy world. Built from the ground up to support the Oculus Rift and with VR in mind, the game will also be available to players who use conventional control methods and monitors. Atajrubah is a persistent world sandbox. Up to 30 players can join each other in adventuring, crafting, trade, exploration and combat against each other or hostile creatures such as bandits, ghul and djinn. You find yourself in a land not your own, with no prospect of finding out who you were. You are forced to forge ahead and create a new life.

Hey there folks !

Crunch time is over! While there is so much more that I wish I could have ready before another pre-alpha release , I am long overdue to put another build out there. I've set a tentative release date of the 24th October for pre-alpha v 0.2 .

I like the idea of these 2 week crunch cycles , while I don't get quite as much sleep as I would like (who does ? ;) ) I feel they really help me focus on getting stuff done come hell or high water :)

- Optimized AI NavNode collection.AI now searches for NavNodes within a certain distance and adds those to its list of known nodes.
This also applies to palm trees and their respective nodes.

- Dates can be 'farmed' by interacting with Palm trees once you've crafted a [ Rough Stone Hammer.] Each one contains a random number of dates with a maximum of 6 , after all the palm's dates have been 'farmed' they will regenerate after a random cool down period of up to 2 minutes.

- Water can also be collected from Wells once you have crafted a [Waterskin].
Each Well has a random amount of water and once it is expended the Well will dry up, use with care and take only what you need !

- Boulder’s can be mined for [Rough Stone] with a random maximum number mine able , once expended Boulders are destroyed.


- Coded Furnace with preliminary crafting functionality(requiring further refinement and expansion).

[R&D]

- Razer Hydra Integration
- Improved Terrain , Streaming.

What are the next couple days reserved for ?
- Debugging

- Refining the demo for IGNCon on Friday the 18th & Saturday the 19th.

I'll finish this update off with some of the concept art that Irsyad(as always the best and most generous concept artist ever !) has prepared for me to print out for IGNCon. The prints turned out great and I look forward to posting pics from my trip in the next update.

Best Regards and Much Love
Mr.Nexy
