Today we have some interesting news for you again.
The world of Eerievale is a complex place with many characters, locations and strands of plot. Some of them are told by the novels, others are told by the game.
For those of you, who appreciate a good book and like to immerse themselves deep into a story, this alone will be great news and something to look forward to.
So far, the adventure game was intended to continue the story of the novel. This however, would mean the multiple volumes of the novel would have to be finished before the development of the game can really start. As the plot of the game relates the plot, happenings and characters of the novel.
No matter which way you turn it, Eerievale is a whole. It is novel and game.
As an adventure lover, who enjoys a good book just as much as picking up the gamepad or the mouse, I’m very excited about the deep connection between game world and plot of novel and game, which we have already accomplished by now.
I have not seen anything like this before to a similar extend within a game.
In my opinion this is exactly how it should be and there is no shortcut to completing the development of Eerievale. It takes time, but will be well worth it.
Now, I’m not just writing a novel, but I’m also a game designer. As such, not only the high quality and authenticity to the novel is important to me, but also to work as efficiently as possible and achieve steady progress. Especially as this is an independent project. So there was a little problem ahead of us with the game.
Fortunately Gavia had a great idea, which will turn out to be a great surprise to fans of Eerievale. It will be revealed once we are far enough with it.
Anyway, this idea lead to the solution to our problem and immediately pushed progress of the project quite a bit forward.
We are now taking the development of Eerievale step by step. The game will span across several chapters and the first chapter takes place a while after the first volume of the novel. By doing this, we can continue right where we stand and work on the game.
At the same time, this helps the team to get much more insight into the world we are creating, which is a big advantage, too.
Thank you very much for your interest and keep in mind to come back again soon, to read the latest news.
