Hello IndieDB! I know that quite some time has passed since the last news on Thalasse Games and Immersive Poetry. I prefer to refrain from spamming or posting minor updates with no significance to them. With that said, I’d love to take this time to catch the community and my players up with what has been happening since the October 16th release of Immersive Poetry.
Who doesn’t love the beauty of the Autumn months? From the gorgeous multi-colored leaves to the cool and mild weather, this is a wonderful time of year to enjoy the outdoors. To celebrate this great season, Immersive Poetry will have new content added on the 23rd of November. This new content includes a brand new poem (Autumn by John Clare) and level to explore.
“Autumn” will take you to the beautiful forests of Connecticut as a stranded traveler with no connection to the outside world. Additionally, a brand new menu design and layout has been implemented to reflect this season.
Those of you who have obtained a copy of Immersive Poetry know that updates have been regular and large (November will not have any updates excluding hotfixes until the 23rd due to work on the new content). So far, most of the glaring issues have been addressed and resolved, including many QoL (Quality of Life) improvements and updated gameplay mechanics. The November update will be large, and for good reason.
To anyone owning Immersive Poetry, the update sizes have most likely appeared large, even for small hotfixes. This issue will be resolved in the November update, which means subsequent updates and fixes will be much smaller in size!
There will be many smaller fixes and changes in this update as well. They will be announced on Steam when the day approaches!
Christmas and Beyond
For Immersive Poetry, the next content update will occur in mid-December, just before the Steam Christmas sale (There WILL be a sale for Immersive Poetry). This content will include another new map with an entirely different mechanic AND character, allowing you to take to the skies! More information on that will be coming soon. This will also be the last monthly content update for Immersive Poetry as focus is currently shifting to the next project, which, for more, info, read on below!
The Next One...
Development on the next project is already underway, and if you follow us on Twitter, then you may have already seen some sneak peek images. This project will be a complete departure from Immersive Poetry and will take you to the depths of the ocean several years in the future. Complete with several chapters, a fun progression system, and intense gameplay, you won’t want to miss this one! Planned release in Q2 2018, but this may and most likely will change.
