Post news RSS An Update - Complete Rework

It has been quite some time since our last update, and I'd like to give some clarity on what's happening going forward.

Posted by on

The last update for Journey's End was on March 26, 2018. For those who may be following the project, you'll notice that was over 2 years ago. I will not go into unnecessary details on why the project has been put on such a long hiatus, but rather simply state that it was a combination of extended health issues including physical and mental health.

If you've made it this far, you will notice that the project has been renamed to Provenance. This renaming was done for several reasons; the name Journey's End is a bit too generic and at this point would be more strongly associated with Terraria's latest update. Also, Journey's End was based upon a tabletop system that has been 10 years in the making called Provenance. More on the tabletop to follow.

Production on Journey's End was also ended because it was the general opinion that the gameplay loop was severely janky. The decision to attempt a dynamic side-scrolling style was ill thought out, and in practice did not produce enjoyable gameplay. It was difficult to grasp one's surroundings, and often enemies would either be nigh impossible to deal with or be much too easy.

At this point I have decided to take a much more true-to-tabletop approach. My goals for Provenance are to produce a game similar to Neverwinter Nights or Divinity; games that echo the experience of tabletop RPGs like Dungeons and Dragons or Pathfinder.

Journey's End is being completely redone from the ground up as a Co-Op RPG experience as Provenance. The lore and style shall remain the same, but I hope to create a much more enjoyable game.
