Hey guys! So I have been really hard at work on a lot of new features and areas for Pixelot and I just wanted to take some time and share it with you!
First up, we have a new town! Once you cross the mortal pass you come upon the town of Lyte, which is desperately in danger and needs your help! After defeating some skeletons you get to recruit a sage named Luke and assist him on his quest!
Lyte is a pretty cool town where you can not only buy stronger equipment, but also interact with many NPC’s and collect some neat loot from treasure chests. The biggest feature I’ve added to this is Quests!
You can now take Quests from NPC’s and get really great rewards from new items, to even recruitable characters! These Quests will show up in a little book icon that now appears in the menu. You’re also able to view the main quest and see what you are supposed to do next! When you start a new quest, NPCs will have an exclamation above them, when they are in progress they will have “…” and finally when a quest is complete it will show a “?”. I’ve also added a little preview image of where the quest takes place to help guide players in the right direction!
One notable character you can recruit is Billy the guard. Similar to Garrett this class is the only other class that can use lances. Billy specializes in high hp, and what he lacks in attack he more than makes up for in defense. Billy is meant to protect your other team members through damage reduction, lowering enemy power, and even commanding foes to attack him instead of his buddies (what a swell guy). I hope you like the updates and I look forward to updating the beta / demo soon so people can get a chance to check out these Quests!
Thanks for reading!
