‘Exiles of Embermark’ Starting to Flesh Out Its Episodic Narrative

We’ve been keeping a very close eye on the development of Exiles of Embermark ever since it first popped up in our Upcoming Games forum thread, and I think it’s fair to say it’s one of my most anticipated 2017 games. We got to check it out live at GDC 2016 and were quite happy with what we saw, and now the developers are starting to show off some of the game’s narrative. As we’ve talked about in the past, the developers have decided to use the app Bound as a way to get the game’s story out without burdening the actual app. Each month, we’ll get more of the game’s narrative on Bound, and that will include updates on how the game’s various houses are doing along with other fun tidbits.

In the latest dev update in our forums, they talked about how they’ve already sent the first episodic story beats to Bound because they want to get some of the game’s narrative out before the actual release. And they posted a snippet of the game’s narrative that contains information about the game they haven’t yet revealed. So, if you feel like going all Sherlock on the game, here’s your chance to speculate and see whether you’re right. And if you like to watch how a game gets fleshed out during development, the Exiles‘ thread in our Upcoming Games forum is one not to miss for sure.
