Wayward Beta 1.1 (Windows)

Remember when I said I wanted faster releases? Okay, I mean it this time! It's just that there was a lot to do in this release, and to most of the users, it should show! Some of the biggest stuff includes:

  • Resource Gathering has been overhauled to match this specification (mostly).
  • Preliminary modding support.
  • Caves have been overhauled to stop all those errors, cave-ins, and generally how crappy they were. You can now even dig into caves from above!
  • Non-unique items will now stack in your inventory.
  • New HUD/user interface and hinting/help system. This will be improved over time - it's still fairly early.
  • Skills now describe their effects via tool-tip.
  • Containers now have a drag/drop interface.
  • Items on the ground now pick-up from reverse (or newest) order.
  • New Anatomy skill and bleeding system.
  • Much more!

Stumbled upon this whilst browsing the latest news and I'm glad I did.
I know it's beta but it's got great promise already. Just lost half an hour to it and have downloaded it so I can devote some more time to it later. Keep it up!!

Played this game for about an hour. Opinion: I think the movement/navigation needs a little work, as getting around "seems" like the game's lagging but its really not. I enjoyed watching my skill level go up all the time, especially when I was traveling across the ocean being hunted down by a couple of sharks. I think there should be a quick pop-up menu that tells you how to get started, catch a fish, cook it on a fire, etc... I spent about 30 minutes trying to figure out why I couldn't make a fire. Turns out, you can only make it on grass.

Overall, I think the game itself needs a little work, but it's still in beta and the fact that I had a Great time playing it, means it must be good :D

Regards, Paulie :)
