Extended Edition ready for re-launch on March 8th

We are ready to re-launch Earthlock on March 8th
The Extended Edition of Earthlock (aka Should-have-been-edition) is ready for launch on March 8th. The game will cost $29.99 but anyone who has bought the original version Earthlock: Festival of Magic before March 8th will get the new version for free. After launch, we will take down the store page for the original version, but the original version will still be available in your library if you own it.

We are in the process of getting all the various languages translated. Unfortunately it looks like many translations will have to be patched in after launch.

Here is a status list on translations.

  • English (Default)
  • Japanese (New - our Japanese publisher did this for us)
  • Norwegian (We are a Norwegian developer and did it in-house)

In the original but not completely translated yet:
  • French
  • German
  • Spanish
  • Italian
  • Arabic
  • Chinese (Complete re-translation as original was poor)
  • Polish

Not in the original but being translated:
  • Russian
  • Brazilian Portuguese

The languages not completed will likely be patched in within the first 4-6 weeks. It's over 60000 words so it takes a lot of time.

We had to re-launch Earthlock as a new game since it was not possible to make it save game compatible with the original version.

Announcing the Shouldhavebeen Edition!

We are very happy to announce that we will be relaunching Earthlock in Q1 next year. The new version feels in many ways like a new game!

In fact the changes are so big that there was no way we could keep it compatible with existing save games. In order to avoid problems where a patch would void all save games, we have set up a new game: Earthlock.

After we completed the PS4 version in January 2017 we began pre-production of Earthlock 2. However after a few weeks getting super excited about our next game. We realized that we were not comfortable leaving Earthlock: Festival of Magic behind as it was. A lot of the criticism we had gotten on the game by then were things we agreed with. For the initial launch we had to make quite a few cuts during the development and some of those cuts really hurt the story.

Long story short; We decided to make what we ended up internally calling shouldhavebeenedition. That way we could leave Earthlock 1 behind us with pride and begin work on Earthlock 2.

The subtitle Festival of Magic was an old remainder from our first kickstarter campaign and felt obsolete, so we decided to cut that, leaving us with: EARTHLOCK.

So what have we done in the last year?
  • Story: It’s massively changed. Almost from the start. We have added more depth, humor and character to the story and things that did not make sense before now do.

  • Crafting: At Plumpet Island, we are happy to report that all buildings on Plumpet now have some kind of functionality.

  • Side quests: Yes, there are now side quests - as initially intended.

  • Mini Games: Like treasure hunting

  • New scenes and characters

  • New and better animation

  • Improved cut scenes.

  • And much, much more.
Important to note: Anyone who owns Earthlock: Festival of Magic will get the new game for free (Steam/GOG/PS4/XboxOne). The game is now in final QA and localization and will be published in Q1 2018.

About This Game

Until March 8, this game includes a free version of the extended edition of EARTHLOCK

Don’t let the cute cartoonish art style fool you. This game is challenging. True fans of the JRPG genre will love it, casual players may want to look elsewhere. Invest the time, and EARTHLOCK: Festival of Magic will reward you with a depth in gameplay that will test the most strategic of players.

Discover Your Hero Within

Embark on a journey to save the beautiful world of Umbra, a harsh planet that stopped spinning thousands of cycles ago. What started as a mission to rescue Amon’s uncle from the clutches of an ancient cult, soon spirals into an adventure that was centuries in the making. You must bring together this group of unlikely heroes to stop the ruinous past from repeating itself.

The World

Explore the magical world of Umbra and discover places lost in the past to uncover the secrets of the Earthlock Artifact.

The Heroes

Unite this band of heroes, all with their own journeys of self discovery and venture into the world to save the planet from the growing evil within. Mix up your strategy to beat your enemies using two different stances per character, and build your characters' battle bond to unleash powerful abilities or unique perks.

Your Own Secret Island

Take a break from adventure and escape to your own home island. Here you can harvest magical ingredients and craft helpful items and perks.

The Talent Table

EARTHLOCK: Festival of Magic features a unique talent board system; a refreshing take on the classic skill tree. This board gives you complete control over your player's strengths and weaknesses. You can swap talents on and off the board, allowing you to finely tune each character to your desired playing style. The talent board also features “Perk Talents” which you can craft and collect in the world, giving you special combat skills and abilities.

For the best EARTHLOCK: Festival of Magic experience, we recommend using a game controller.
