The Waylanders - Celtic Locations, New Writer and New Formations
There are three new updates for The Waylanders we have not reported about yet. First there is the update about the Celtic locations you start your adventure in.
Many of the locations you can visit in The Waylanders are based off of real historical sites in Spain, such as the one below:This location is based on Santa Tecla's hillfort (also known as Santa Trega), a place in the Southwest of Galicia. It's considered a Place of Cultural Interest, and wan inhabited around 2000 years ago
In The Waylanders, your adventure begins in the Celtic region of Kaltia, in what is now Galicia in Northwestern Spain.
Kaltia has a lot of places you can visit, rich in nuances and dissimilar from each other. Coastal villages, big forests, necropolis, underground cities, werewolves camps... Let's take a quick look to some Celtic locations you can enjoy on The Waylanders!
Furthermore they decided to hire one of the writers who was part of a stretch goal.
The story is one of the most important parts in The Waylanders. That’s the reason why we are collaborating with experienced scriptwriters. In fact, our first stretch goals is to count on Emily Grace Buck, one of the most talented writers in videogames industry.
But we have great news for all of you. She is heavily involved in the campaign and really interested in The Waylanders, so we’ve reached an agreement… Emily is now part of the team!
The Waylanders is still an indie RPG, but we are really happy because she’s an AAA person with the skills to write an AAA story for the game.
This announcement means, Emily is free from her ‘stretch goal jail’, and this is now unlocked, even before reaching the $200,000 goal!
And then there are the new formations:
As you already know, the formation system is one of the most innovative features in The Waylanders.
When we release the Kickstarter campaign, we showed you three formations available in the pre-alpha demo: the orb, the arrow head and the phallanx formations.
In this update, we want to show three new formations. And we can assure these formations are different to any traditional formation you've seen until now. Keep reading!
The Sorcerer Tower is a long-range static formation, made to be protected while it deals great magical damage.
The healer Tree Formation allows you to have a flexible and strong unit, highly resistant to magic and capable of supporting all other units. Advantages to using this strategy vary depending on which allies take part in the formation.
The ranger Star formation allows you to constantly shoot in any direction, plus you can use an ability to switch from having a movable to a static unit, allowing you to attack enemies located at great distances.
Check out the link for some videos about these formations.
