Book of Travels is one of the most authentic and interesting games released in 2021. Released as a TMO (Small Multiplayer Online Game) in 2019, it is an online game where you don’t have to be a hero. It has some traditional RPG elements and can even participate in battles, but the focus is on exploration and companionship. There is no overall goal, or even a real beginning or end.
It sounds cute and leaves a strong first impression.But just a few months after it was released to Early Access in October 2021, it ran into trouble: Developer Might and Delight said in a statement renew The launch did not go as smoothly as it hoped, and in order to “stay alive”, it had to reduce the number of employees in the studio from about 35 to 10.
“We have suffered setbacks, so the speed of content production in the future will be affected. We want to be transparent about this,” the studio wrote. “However, we also want you to know that the remaining team is determined and committed to two things: survive and bring the best content to the game. We will keep the development of the travel book at all costs and continue to be with you Push it forward with the company.”
It’s a shame to see Travels struggling so much, because it is indeed a very promising game.The average number of concurrent players has been hovering Under 100 Since its launch in October, Steam users’ reviews have been “very positive” and Lauren has listed it as her best game of the year in 2021.
She wrote: “Its small server online world draws on the trading and fighting of pen-and-paper role-playing games and talkative NPCs.” “It is visually and aurally quiet, as I said to Might and Delight in their Shelter As expected after the series. I spent 50 hours slowly exploring this small world without worrying about whether I would miss it. This is a low-pressure online RPG relationship that I have always needed.”
To help keep the lights on and the wheels turning, Might and Delight released a donation DLC called Book of Travels called A cup of goodwill, It costs $2, and it will definitely not bring you anything “except for the warm feeling of help”—obviously, this is usually much more than just two dollars. The studio also plans to release the original soundtrack of the travel book in the near future.
