2018 Roadmap, News, FAQ and Your Support!

INTRODUCTION

As previously explained in the other 2018 news article, I will be releasing as much updates as possible to White Pearl.
Here I will detail what comes first when it comes to issuing updates to the game:

PRIORITY OF UPDATES

- Bug Fixes (based on the reports on the "Bugs" subforum of the Discussion page).

- Balance Changes/Changes to Existing Content (based on the reports on the "Suggestions" subforum of the Discussion page).

- New Content
You may have seen that, in the previous patches to the game (namely 1.0.3) I created some more cutscenes in the game which further detail the story.
If time allows, I might make more new content for the game.


THE ROADMAP

- Release White Pearl on rpgmaker.net by at least March 2018.

This is something I've been trying to do since the inital release of the game back in October 2017. I'm having some problems getting my game approved over there because the moderation team doesn't think the game fits the approval guidelines. I will keep trying to send the game through (hopefully with success) to rpgmaker.net but, until then, I have no set release date for the game on that website.

- Gain a larger presence.

It's something that I can't do alone, something I've been trying with for a long time, and why my game is even on Steam in the first place.
I assume most of you know that it is incredibly difficult to market an indie game. Thankfully, my game isn't commercial, so I'm not actually trying to sell it. I just want more people to know about it through other platforms such as YouTube - so I humbly request that, those of you who can, make a few videos on YouTube, be it Let's Plays or anything in-between. Do it if you feel like you want to!

POSSIBLE PROJECTS

- A prequel to White Pearl, titled Fabrication.

I started developing Fabrication October 2016, but I put it on hold indefinitely until I finish White Pearl.
For those of you who have played through the game to the end, the story of Fabrication takes a large role in the overall arc of the main plot - and through this game, you know how the story of Fabrication starts and ends.
Of course, now that White Pearl is finished, I may resume full development of this title.

The game is aiming to be developed with RPGMaker VXAce and the Luna Engine, the same engines which White Pearl uses, however - I may migrate over to the RPGMaker MV engine for higher quality assets.

Here is what I want for the title to include:

- A real time battle system
- Half the overall scale of White Pearl, lasting around 10 hours at most.
- Very gritty, more mature feel than White Pearl.

Here's what I've already made in the project (most of this was done Oct 2016):
- All main character sprites and faces
- An introduction
- An outline of the story plan
- A very small fraction of the database (inc. animations)
- Only a few explorable and interactable areas

Please bear in mind that there's no set plans to actually complete this project. I just want to get the news out here for future projects I may do as a game developer.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: Will there be DLC for the game?
A: No, everything will be released as free updates. This is a free game, after all!

Q: Will there be a soundtrack for the game?
A: It's tricky to answer because the music used in the game isn't mine and isn't used with explicit permission. However, I did give full credit and copyright to the original creators. That being said, the full soundtrack is ready - but I'm fairly certain I'll never distribute it.

YOUR SUPPORT & SOURCES

I'm considering setting up a donation page, so I'll let everyone know if it comes to fruition.
The donation page will be used to fund future projects I decide to do as an indiependent game developer.
However, I need to know what everybody else thinks first, so please leave your opinion in the comments section.

Right now, there's a few sources on the game you can peruse:

- The official wiki.[white-pearl-rpg.wikia.com]
(I want to get the whole plot in there at some point, but I need help)!

- My Youtube channel (lots to do with the game on there).

- My Twitter (news on future updates, and other stuff to the game is posted there).

- The offical Facebook page.

Use the #wprpg hastag on Twitter to promote the game.

You can search more about the game on YouTube by searching "white pearl game".

---------------------

So basically this was a lot of news and information I wanted to get out.

Please continue to enjoy your time with the game, play it, and leave a suitable review telling how much you liked/disliked the game. Reception is very important!

Thank you for reading!

Synopsis

The world of Ottrea constantly undergoes a period of calamity, known as Dark Eras. It is believed that the Dark Eras are caused to happen due to the Priori, who sow the seeds of darkness within the world.
As to why they happen, it is unknown.
White Pearl follows the story of Pearlto, how he met characters with intertwined connections and pasts - and how he became tasked with preventing the forthcoming of the Fifth Dark Era.
This, coupled with the looming threat of the Priori (who are the antagonists of the game), means Pearlto is under immense stress in order to keep peace within Ottrea - lest calamity happen a fifth time.
Even so, the origins of the world still lie in mystery, but a certain someone is there to discover it all.

Main Characters



Pearlto Divinia: A man of a religious folllowing, childhood friend of Katkin's and person of authority and empathy. Even when faced with a dark threat he is tasked to destroy, he feels regret. Should he question his faith?

Katkin Elderflower: A friend which Pearlto needed. Born and raised in a restrictive and nobled family just like Pearlto, the two became friends quickly. However, she conceals her family's purpose and origin to the party. Will she tell them, or will her past continue to haunt her. She will have to learn to deal with the past.

Elsay Valenheart = Sister to Elrise, she is a woman of a well-mannered nature. She struggles with empathising with other people, but she is not without heart.

Elrise Valenheart = Brother to Elsay, his outward appearance appears to be morbid and cold, however a traumatic experience has formed him into what he is. He harbours a dark secret unknowingly.

Elyswer Vael = A man of humour, he can lighten up the mood quickly. He is also childhood friends with U'vharr. This man was once an airship pilot.

U'vharr Tia = The king of Ancarna, a town of richness and gold, although the recent shortage has left the town with a decreased budget – they still have plenty to depend on. When heir to the throne at a young age, he could not fit in with the other children of the town and so he turned to Elyswer.

Cassopeia Kinnear = A woman skilled in the arts of dark magic, she learns of her identity and connection to a figure long forgotten.

Many more to meet...



Gameplay - Combat

Combat in White Pearl is turn-based.
The player will decide what action each character would take. When all actions have been decided, the turn will begin - along with the enemy's.
Some skills have a charge time, meaning that the character who is charging the skill cannot take any actions while they are charging the skill during their turn, and must wait for it to finish to execute the skill.
Furthermore, some skills have a cooldown - meaning they will have to be used strategically.

Gameplay - Field

Players may interact with objects in the field, outside of combat.
Most of the time, interaction with these objects is crucial to progression within the game - such as solving a puzzle.
Also, there are lore books around the world of Ottrea which can be found and read by the player. These lore books detail more about the mythology and history of Ottrea - but aren't necessary to read as the main story will cover more than enough.

Gameplay - Content

Besides from the main quest, there are also numerous sidequests you can complete - and areas to unlock and find. Doing this additional content will reap great rewards!

There is also crafting within the game, which is unlocked once the first chapter is complete. You can make entirely new gear, or reinforce gear which you already own. You do all this by using materials, with certain ones being dropped by enemies and materials such as leather or cloth available at shops.
