It's been a while since I updated the news page, and I'd just like to update it for posterity's sake in-case anyone still uses this for the main source of information.
This blog post will cover NEW
news regarding Fabrication, the next game in the Chronicles of Ottrea series, that has not been covered anywhere else.

Main Topic 1: Fabrication Release DateFabrication is set to release at the end of 2020 / early 2021!
Previously, I was really set on releasing the game at the end of 2020 as part of White Pearl's 3rd anniversary but, the sound team needs to catch up with everything! And I would really like the extra time to play-test the game and turn it inside out. Especially looking at White Pearl... a big problem upon release was bugs and I really don't want something like that repeated again, so I want to do it right. So I am aiming for this release window. A more exact date will be revealed soon, but you don't have long to wait anymore, so don't worry!
Another announcement... the Steam page is coming soon! Due to COVID19, page and build reviews are taking a lot longer than expected. Which is no problem really... because I've been busy making the game. And I actually haven't even bothered to send in my request for submission yet (laughs)
Main Topic 2: Fabrication Game Details
If you've played White Pearl, the best way I can describe Fabrication is that the game is basically that... but improved and better to play!Main Features of Fabrication:
- The story of the game takes place before the events of White Pearl
- 15-20 hours of playtime
- I'll be implementing lots more achievements this time, so I want interested players to aim for them!
- There's a Quest Log. Yep... that's a main feature. Because it was so highly requested from White Pearl.
- Over 20 side-quests and activities in total to complete in addition to the engaging story
- Crafting system
- Fishing system
- Trading system
- Reputation, relationship and fame system*
* More detail on these mechanics will be revealed in either the store page or as you play the actual game to understand how they work.
...And that's it! I'm really looking forward to getting this game out there and in people's hands. By the way, I'm still looking for testers. If you want to apply, check this blog post out[hgdb2.home.blog]
*I'm currently experiencing a huge influx of e-mails, so I might miss your application. I'll be checking them more carefully over the next month though, even if you sent something out back in May. I'm really sorry for the delay, but I'll try to get back in time. Thank you!If you're looking for video footage of the game;
