Happy Saturday everyone! Now that the Kickstarter and Backerkit have wrapped up, we will be transitioning into full-on development mode in preparation for our upcoming beta test. In the meantime, we will continue posting these development updates so we can give you all some insight into what we’re working on behind the scenes. Enjoy!
- Zerda Breed
- Pageant Revamp
Up first, we would like to introduce you to our newest Lorwolf breed - the Zerda!
Description: This breed is modeled after the adorable Fennec fox! Like the Fennec fox, the Zerda is considered the smallest of the wolves in Loria. They are distinguished by their large, hyper-sensitive ears that help them to regulate heat and pinpoint the location of prey. Zerdas can easily adapt to a wide variety of climates and biomes, though they prefer to dwell in the hotter areas of Loria. As the smallest breed, they typically weigh 3-5 pounds and reach about 8 inches tall.
Behavior: Zerdas are typically extroverted and very outgoing. Though small in comparison to the other breeds, they have big personalities and are not afraid to voice their opinions. Zerdas are very friendly and often travel together within large familial groups. The more independent individuals will sometimes leave the group to go off on their own adventure, making many new friends along the way.
We are working on getting the Zerda breed and their pattern (which will feature stripes) into the Wolf Demo very soon, so stay tuned!
The Pageant mini-game has also received some updates since the Alpha test - including a new background and a big structure revamp! This update has changed the way the Pageant functions in the game. It is now considered our “Daily Check-In” activity, where players can pop in to vote on their favorite wolves and receive a daily reward. The rewards get bigger and better with each consecutive day you check in to vote - which we hope will provide a much needed boost to daily activities.
Lorwolf’s mini-games are designed to cater to a wide variety of player interests, so we decided to group these specialized games into a new “Professions” category. Professions are level-based activities that get more difficult and rewarding as players level up their skills in a particular field. Right now, we have 6 professions in mind, including; Fishing, Farming, Hunting, Crafting, Mining, and Cooking.
All professions will revolve around item acquisition/creation so players can supplement their own pack’s resources or sell/trade them with other players!
