Legends from Thyilos (recently known as Tales of Thyilos) has officially put out the 6th, and final beta version. From here, the game itself will not receive any ‘major’ updates for a few months while the full demo is being established with all the assets it will require.
But fear not for the current beta may yet get a patch or two depending on what bugs are fixed. But I’ll only update if there’s enough fixes to make it worth it; such as a bunch of balancing fixes, or event fixes, etc.
But despite it still being a beta, and it’s only testing for this version so far being me tiredly working my way through it for the past week, fuelled naught but by high levels of caffeine, the game is quite playable.
The current features now added include:
-You can not visit Chipadin’s Inn, though it has yet to undergo the custom tailored construction I want for it.
-Additionally to the Inn, take Eric with you and talk to his mother to gain access to his parents house.
-The Hidden Cave which previously had nothing to it, has been finished, and I hope the challenges prove worthy. You may even learn something new that the Thyilosian Lore book would never be able to tell you at risk of breaking too many barriers.
-The last scene, which I’d discovered thanks to a helpful play tester cold not be reached due to an error, is now more functional and plays out like a scene. Additionally, all scenes have been reconfigured, so when an important scene plays out, it’ll fade out, then back in.
-Lastly, there is a new character in the game. See if you can find them.
Features that are in dev, but not implemented due to running out of time:
-Three new quests. Two will be in Lyador. The third can only be accessed if you find a certain item in a certain quest. Miss this item, and you wont be able to access the quest!
-The Recruitment Guild is still being figured out.
-The Gambling Den’s games are worked out in theory, but they will need to be put to the test.
That’s about it!
Oh, and the game did officially get it’s name change. The reason for this is that the “of Time” series has another project in discussion that would require the use of the Anagram “ToT” to make it a functional and fitting working title. To prevent confusion, this game has had a name change to something that’s just as suitable, and will make sure there’s no clashes. Coincidentally, back in early development of this game, it almost became “Legends of Thyilos”. Now it’s offically going to be Legends from Thyilos. Not sure if “what goes around, comes around” fits this situation, but its the only analogy my sleepy brain can make.
Now, I shall end my rambles with the link to the download. Hope those of you who give it a go can enjoy what it has to offer. As always, if you find trouble, please don’t hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
