Hello Pachans! Another month of hard work has passed. We’ve continued to expand NPC animations, portraits, and their stories. Now, in this devlog, we will focus on a brand new festival and the expanded caves.
Update on Release
We have decided to move Roots of Pacha’s release to early 2023. We have aimed to be as transparent as possible and need more time to deliver the experience we promised and the one we all dreamed of playing.
Game development is an iterative process with many interconnected systems that all need time and energy dedicated to them. The team is comprised of talented individuals who have both met and exceeded expectations regarding the alpha, beta, and demo. We are incredibly proud of these accomplishments so far.
With that said, even with a talented team and the “quick pace” we’re working at, we unfortunately lacked the experience to gauge how much time it would take to create the game we promised you all. To achieve the level of quality we want and that you all expect and deserve, we would rather take the necessary time to deliver. We’re confident it will be worth the wait. We may not have made our 2022 projection, but we aren’t far off either. We can see the finish line and need a little more time before we can give you an exact release date. We’re looking to announce a final release date in December.
We will continue to post devlogs to keep you updated on our progress as we take transparency very seriously. Our goal is to be as honest and forthcoming as we can with you.
For our Kickstarter Backers, we are forever grateful that you chose to support the development of the game that allowed us to grow our team and make our collective dream a reality. So, as a token of our never-ending gratitude, we’d like to ease the wait a little by inviting you to join the Beta. To receive your Steam Key, just enter the email you backed with here (https://rootsofpacha.com/orders/) and a key will be sent to you.
The summer competition festival
Pachans are ready for some summer fun at the Beach! We added a competition festival to the clan's calendar so you can have tons of fun with the community’s minigames.
Join Grob and Touk at the target shooting with spears; play “bones” with Ron and Tetith; share food and hang out with Anda and Illoe; dance with Zeda and Vallah; watch Krak create a sand sculpture, and enjoy a host of other events!
Celebrate and join in on the festivities. Fun is guaranteed with the clan!
New animal caves
The caves have expanded by several rooms and now contain two new totems: Monkey and Bear. You’ll discover new resources like copper that will help change the way the clan lives.
Once you complete Monkey and Bear’s challenges, you’ll use their powers to find passageways with Monkey's leaps of faith or muscle your way through obstacles using Bear’s strength.
On your way to the cave's completion, you’ll find hidden rooms and other mysteries along the way.
Thank you for following our development journey with your continued support! The team is truly grateful for it. Stay tuned for more news!
