Book of Travels Early Access

We have something new for those of you looking for unique things to play. Today, developer Might and Delight announced that its current project, Book of Travels will enter Early Access on Steam on October 11. The game will launch with Chapter 0, when players can begin to explore the Braided Shore.

Book of Travels in an online RPG. However, it is not an MMO. In fact, it lacks a lot of things that make MMOs MMOs, particularly the “Massively” part. Instead, the devs went a different route and created a “Tiny Multiplayer Online RPG.” The idea is that having fewer players available to meet in the game world will make meeting and interacting with them special, and important to the overall story experience.

When players do encounter each other, they can decide to team up and work together or go their separate ways. To work together, players will need to communicate, but you won’t be doing that the normal way. Instead, you’ll use symbols unlocked over time. For instance, players will only learn the symbol for “city” after visiting a city. (This particular feature is a bit reminiscent of an older game, The Endless Forest, where players take on the role of a deer-like creature and use symbols as their names while communicating with various gestures.)

As stated above, Book of Travels will be available in Early Access on October 11. While the devs are apparently pleased with where it currently stands, they do warn that it is early access, so, you know, don’t expect perfection.
