Book of Travels has to be one of the most intriguing games releasing all year. After a successful Kickstarter campaign, Might & Delight have now confirmed their TMORPG (Tiny Multiplayer Online RPG) will go into Early Access.
Not heard of Might & Delight? They created Tiny Echo, Meadow, Shelter and more and have created quite a name for themselves for the incredible worlds they made. Book of Travels continues their unique world-building, with an online RPG that focuses on exploration and discovery rather than stats and numbers.
Confirming their plans in a recent update, they're going to be sending out Beta copies in May and June with Early Access for everyone else willing to start in October. We should also see some new in-game shots, including a first look at the UI in their next update.
Everything about it makes me so very curious. The majority of RPGs focus on combat, make you constantly fiddle around with your inventory and check over your stats constantly. Having one like this, that's far more relaxed with a beautiful hand-painted art-style is certainly going to be different. Communicating using symbols you unlock as you play and discover too, so that should hopefully prove interesting and remove toxic chat.
