Meriwether - Update #30, Pax and Development Update

by Myrthos, 2013-03-25 12:49:37

The developers of Meriwether can now be visited in the arcade section of the Kickstarter booth at PAX East. Furthermore there is some development news on the game like the observation feature.

But we couldn't resist showing you the new GUI that pops up when use the Observation feature. The team loves how it plays and looks. We'd love to know what you think!

Here's how the Observation feature works. When you click on a species you haven't identified yet, a GUI like the one above appears. You can choose up to three of the circles on the right, and doing so will fill in the image on the left. Then you're off to find a new example of the species to get more opportunities to fill in more of the image. Once you've completed 80% or more of the image on the left, the image will auto-complete and the species is identified. Our internal tests have found the system to be lightweight and fun, but of course nothing is finalized until our beta-testers and backers agree. Still, we're very excited with it and feel it's pretty close to beta-ready.
