The latest Kickstarter update for Tiny Trinket Games' squad-based tactical RPG Zoria: Age of Shattering brings us up to speed with what the team's been up to over the last month or so. That list includes remodeling and expanding some of the game's locations, introducing an attack of opportunity system, and working on the Character Creator tool.
The update also mentions the game placing 5th in the Best Upcomming category of IndieDB's Indie of the Year 2022 poll.
Here are the text bits:
Working on Zoria: Age of Shattering is an exciting but also challenging experience. The ideas are endless, and expectations - yours and ours - are high. This month we introduced many valuable changes to the game. Are you ready? Welcome to Monthly Changelog #2! :D
Remodeled and expanded locations
Rithvale had a complete makeover. We needed to rebuild it to match it with our current level of quality. Rithvale will become your homebase and your safe haven you'll long for after a long journey.
Players will now have quests available (both sidequests and main quests), making it a more lively area worth revisiting at different stages of the game.
Do you remember Shrieking Pass? Some of you might have seen it in the demo from 2 years ago. We felt this location could be more interesting, so we decided to revisit it, with some new places and adventures :D Now it is not only an area where the story takes place but also a part of the story on its own.
Attacks of Opportunity
RPG players are most likely familiar with this system. Certain characters will be able to strike an enemy unit in combat as it moves next to them. It can be a very satisfying move that'll prevent your opponents from running away from you and has a significant chance to finish them off without the need to chase them around the map (and possibly get into a trap).
Character Creator was a Strech Goal on Kickstarter that we unfortunatelly didn't reached BUT we decided to add it after all :D We believe that creating your own character in an RPG adds a lot of value to a roleplaying aspect of the game. Whether you like to adjust a gender or look to your own for a better immersion, play a hero of your dreams or make it an honor to play as a female character whenever possible - we've got you.
Once again, huge thanks to everyone who supported us in the Kickstarter campaign! :D
