Stockholm, Sweden, 12.09.2019

 

Initiated fans will know something of the project via the studio's Travellers' Newsletter, where nearly thirty thousand people have signed up to receive behind-the-scenes news and reveals. Today we are proud to have the support of Steam in launching the Book of Travels' Coming Soon page as part of their Tokyo Game Show announcements. We're doubly excited because we're also revealing that we will be Kickstarting the project next month.

The game uses a unique mix of 3D depth with handpainted sprites

An RPG that Defies Convention

Book of Travels is a is a serene online RPG that sets you adrift in a fairytale world. At Might and Delight we make games that are artistically distinctive and emotionally challenging. With Book of Travels, we’ve developed these ideas further, applying the same narrative principles and artistic integrity to an online RPG. 

"The spark to create an RPG came out of a simple philosophy - we wanted to take on something that was far from our previous experiences, and that we had absolutely no idea how to create." - Jakob Tuchten, Art Director

Crowdfunding for a Richer Game World Over the years we’ve been incredibly flattered and energised by the warmth and creativity of the communities which have gathered around Shelter, Shelter 2 and Meadow, and it’s those communities who’ve inspired us to crowdfund. Book of Travels uses a system that allows plotlines and events to occur at random, which means new plot ideas can be readily implemented. For us, this is an opportunity to incorporate requests and ideas from the gaming community directly into the game world. 

You can see the trailer and read about the game’s unique features in full on our Steam page, including more about:

 

  • Authentic roleplaying and individual playstyles  
  • A boundless narrative that won’t hold your hand  
  • Playing with fewer people in a TMO, Tiny Multiplayer Online
  • A beautiful world of uncertainty 

News about our Kickstarter and any other developments will be sent via the Travellers' Newsletter first, so if you’d like to travel with us, sign up here

Thank you for your interest - we look forward to connecting in the future!

This is our first RPG, so we’d love to hear your feedback on the concept and gameplay design! If you have any thoughts or questions about Book of Travels, please get in touch at [email protected].

 The team is available for interview and we’d also be happy to arrange a studio visit.
