Stockholm, Sweden, 23.09.2020

After a hugely successful Kickstarter and a closed beta, Might and Delight have created a new programme of game updates to share news and screenshots as development continues. The new schedule falls in line with a revised early access launch date for their upcoming Tiny Multiplayer Online RPG Book of Travels of Q2 of 2021.

With a new schedule in place, the team have planned a full programme of regular development insights. Starting October 2nd, fans will be able to catch up with progress in fortnightly blogs on the Book of Travels Steam page. Articles will track development and include sneak peaks into the growing game world as well as lots of screenshots to ring the changes.

Creative Director Jakob Tuchten says “The times ahead are very exciting for us, not least because we get to share more of how we envision the game. Since the beta, the game has gone from being a question to an exclamation. We're thrilled to start dropping more info, gameplay and art from what we hope will be one of the most unusual RPGs around.”

 

First gameplay footage drops in November

Currently the team are working on polishing combat and interactions, developing dialogue and story arcs, and creating the huge city of Kasa. We’re really excited to be working toward sharing the first gameplay video and a major project update in November.

 

 

 "Quality is the deadline"

“This has been a bizarre year for everyone, and for us as a small studio it has certainly meant some road bumps. However, now we are focused on simply one thing; quality. Quality is the deadline, and we are very excited to move forward with a schedule that lets us achieve just that” says Jakob. 

You can see the trailer and read about the game’s unique features in full on our Steam pageTo find out more about the ethos behind the game and the studio, read the recent interview with Jakob in Killscreen here.

 

About Book of Travels 

Book of Travels was announced on Steam in autumn 2019 and borrows classic RPG elements to create a game experience that’s unlike typical RPGs. The game is light on stats and focuses instead on roleplaying, exploration and personality. As a Tiny Multiplayer Online - or TMO - players will meet less often than in MMOs making those meetings a key part of the play experience. There are no linear quest lines built into the game - instead Book of Travels will be a truly living world, one where you’ll stumble across events and characters unexpectedly.

The team is available for interview and we’d also be happy to arrange a studio visit or video chat. To make an appointment please contact us at [email protected]

This is our first RPG, so we’d love to hear your feedback on the concept and gameplay design! If you have any thoughts or questions about Book of Travels, please get in touch at [email protected].
