Arakion - Armor and Music Updates

by Myrthos, 2012-10-04 09:56:32

The Kickstarter page for Arakion has two new updates, one giving more information on the armor and the other on music.

n the early update today I just wanted to go into a little bit about how armor works in Arakion. In Arakion instead of finding standard generic cloth armor, leather armor etc... that any class can wear, you forge armor that is customized for each class type. This allows you to craft armor that is specific for your character's play style instead of giving generic stat benefits. This opens up the freedom for me to implement armor pieces that effect class skills, give passive benefits geared towards the class and more. 

As you play through the game, much like you would forge new weapons, you will be forging new armor and equipment for your character. You will find rare recipes as well as materials that you will use.

In the example shown above you see a monk with a basic set of armor. After multiple forges this monk has added a necklace, scrolls, a "cape" and an arm brace. You will continue to forge new equipment and replace old equipment for your characters in this fashion throughout the game.

I’d like to give a quick update on the music of Arakion. Since the last time I posted, I have finished up the in-game music. I expanded on the melody used in the original in-game teaser, and made it more full. This is meant to be a pleasant piece that plays while the player is building up the town, hence the title “Rebuilding.”

Besides that, I’ve been working on remastering the main theme, and also finishing up “The Destruction.” From there, I’ll continue on to the music for the dungeon and also the battles.

I hope you guys like the finished track, and are excited to hear the rest in game and on the soundtrack. Thank you again for supporting Arakion and be sure to tell your friends about it!
