Default The Waylanders - Romancing

September 10th, 2021, 10:11
Romancing is going to be a thing in The Waylanders, which is scheduled to be released on November 16th.

loading…


Fresh off the announcement of The Waylanders' Launch date, Gato Salvaje Studio is releasing the last of their planned Summer updates for their Celtic real-time with pause RPG.

A Coruña, Spain -- September 1, 2021 -- Romance has come to The Waylanders! The RPG community has demanded their favorite characters be DTF (Down to… Formation?) and with this update, players can now choose to pursue one of ten different romances with ten of the characters who appear through the game.

Will you get horizontal with the himbo Heraklios? Be seduced by the golden tongued Nazhedja? Or dance on the edge of Mal's sharp wit and sharper knives? Amergin, Berath, Delba, Heraklios, Brigg, Khaldun, Mal, Nazhedja, Lugaid, and Tiana can now be pursued romantically in The Waylanders.

These relationships range from fun flings to serious relationships to less physical connections and everything in between. Of course Early Access players will only be able to see the Act 1 portion of each romance, with more content coming after the game launches with the Medieval era included. Find out this November just how a romance in the past blooms into something new a thousand years in the future.

Along with the added romances, the Gato Salvaje team is adding more than 60 achievements, 50+ new 50 new weapons and armor, and additional lore entries in the codex for characters, locations, story, and more. The update will also include bug fixes for community reported issues and general polish improvements throughout the game.
More information.

I will be generous and will keep my expectations on zero level after this. In any case, I can only be pleasantly surprised here.

I still feel you will be disappointed.

How about all games have a single huge lootbox you pay for up front that contains all the options, items, skins, unlocks etc? I'd pay for that!!

Soft-core porn for the win. For reference BG3 is just as bad.

Good grief, doesn't anyone play games simply for fun?

What's the deal? Is this an appeal to the incel demographic? Dumb.

Probably but there not just targeting just the male demographic or incels as you wrote above. There going the BioWare route and everyone's Bi and romanceable.
One of the most requested features by RPG fans - and our amazing community in particular - is the ability to explore the passionate world of character romance, and we're thrilled to announce that it's here! You will be able to flirt with multiple characters throughout your adventure, the way you want to, and with no limitations in terms of race, class, or gender.
So the target is both female and male players.

I would be more interested if we could have some weird offspring of mixed races….

It's interesting when a game comes out and say they are adding/working on feature X and people then forget that what constitutes fun in a game varies by player.

Game X just announced there will be lots of tactical combat!

Tactical combat? Boring, don't people play games for fun anymore?

Game B just announced a new game set in a dark dystopian world with heavy themes.

Dark, dystopian world with heavy content? Don't people play games for fun anymore?

Game G just announced there will be romancable companions in their game.

Romance? In a game? Don't people play games for fun anymore?

Point being what constitutes as fun for people playing games varies from person to person.

Romance is fine, but I prefer the fade to black approach where it's just implied. With these character models it's just cringe worthy as is is.

Yeah, I find the idea of soft porn scenes done in bad computer graphics strangely hilarious, and a promotional video featuring nothing but a montage of it even more so. It's a bit like the Bad Sex in Fiction awards - if you find yourself writing a sex scene, always stop to ask yourself whether it's hilariously awful, and would be much better left to the imagination.

Nod, Ripper and Greygore have nailed pretty much how it strikes me as well. Most the time such scenes seemed aimed at…well, I'm not certain who they're targeting, I'm certain it's not me, though.
