Teaching players how to play your game is not always easy. After all, games are supposed to be fun! And when you have an especially complex game that requires a lot of explanation, it can be even more difficult to educate the player.

Rusty Challenges are game tutorials cloaked as side quests given to you by your dog, Rusty. Rusty already follows the player around and saves your game, but now he constantly gives you tiny challenges through the game. If you complete a challenge, you Rusty rewards you with an item he’s dug up while on your quest.

And the quality and usefulness of these items varies wildly! You never know if Rusty will give you gold or garbage. He is, afterall, just a dog and cannot very well appraise the value of things he finds!

Rusty’s challenges are usually simple things, like sell an item at a shop or use the inquire button to learn what Vantages an enemy is capable of. Rusty will explain how to do these things and then reward the player for doing them.

Here are some other Challenges you can expect:

As you can see, Rusty is not the most epic of quest-givers. But, again, he is just a dog.

Tomorrow, we’re going to talk about the Howl family farm.
