Once a thriving fruit orchard and farming community, Bleeding
Grove was hardest hit when the Demon Wolves were loosed upon Yomi
Island. Now the dead lay strewn among the neglected orchard rows,
rotting alongside their abandoned harvest. Beyond the orchard lies
a cave, once the den of a local wolf pack. It is unknown how they
exactly succumbed to demonic corruption or what befell the great
Alpha wolf - Moroko. Perhaps the den holds some evidence of what
truly occurred, and who is responsible.
What's Coming Up For Akaneiro's Beta
Advanced Character Training
The next major update will include a slew of new ability levels
to train in - adding more varied and powerful versions of those
already available. Poison coating for your caltrops? A "shocking"
upgrade for your Steady Shot? Options galore, as long as you've got
the Karma. In addition, you'll soon be able train in Weapon and
Armor Mastery, adding passive benefits when using specific weapon
and armor types.
To further differentiate our weapons, we'll be adding area
damage based on weapon type. This means a weapons will hit multiple
enemies depending on the range they provide - you'll be able to
sweep aside enemy groups with your Great Maul!
An unnatural winter has fallen over this isolated corner of Yomi
Forest. Each day the deathly cold spreads further, freezing lakes
and farmland. The Red Hunters must venture through the veil of
frost and biting wind, find the origin of this curse and destroy
those behind it.
Still in development, Shivering Pines will bring a completely
new environment style to the game - along with a new tribe of imps
who wield frost magic.
