We’ve been keeping a close eye on the upcoming Exiles of Embermark because of how it’s promising to combine quick battles with deep RPG elements in a game made with the mobile platform in mind. The game is still on track for a 2017 release (hopefully early 2017), but the developer blogs have been giving us more information on what the game will look like on your mobile. The latest dev blog shows off the Mage class look and how you’ll be able to mix and match pieces of gear that will give your character the look you want while at the same time adding specific effects.
The blog also talks about how the developers are partnering with Bound, the mobile app for episodic long-form fiction, to flesh out the world’s lore. Each month (which equates to an in-game season), you’ll be able to go on Bound and read stories, check out maps or images, and even a read reporting of sorts of what the player Houses are doing. Smart idea and one that may help provide some cohesion to the player experience.
The blog also shows an early image of how your Camp will look and the kind of activities you’ll be able to do there (like read announcements, craft, check out quests, and so on). There’s also talk about the way the NPC design is coming along, the players’ Motivations (which will be used to trigger quests among other things), and much more. So if you like meaty dev blogs or just want to know more about this promising upcoming game, check it out here and also drop by our forum thread to chat with the developers.
