What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want engage the community and let the game grow with its players. We have a good base to stand on, and now we want to grow the game together.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to be in Early Access for around 2 years.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“- A larger game world. The levels available on day 1 of Early Access is roughly a third of the planned levels (58 levels planned for full release, 23 in Early Access day one).
- More skills (300+ skills are planned, with 113 in Early Access day one)
- More playable forms (20+ forms are planned, with 12 in Early Access day one)
- More endeavours (no planned number, but more variation based on feedback)
- More narrative events (continuously, and as the game world grows)
- Evolution of and polish to various other gameplay elements


Specific features that are planned:
- Achievements
- Backer suggested skills
- Heirloom screen: Unlockable items and skills that you can only unlock during certain periods of the game, which are then account bound.
- Costumes: Visual options for the Forms.
- Accessories: Another equipment item type for roleplaying customization (pipes, glasses, grass straws, etc.)
- Pets: The ability to aquire pets that follow you along in the game world.
- Draisine: A vehicle that you cooperate with other players to push forward.
- Go'bad minigame: A go inspired minigame that you can play with other players.
- Memory Knot: A feature that gives players the opportunity to commemorate their meeting with tying a knot together, that becomes a memento for the character.
- Dreams: A set of dreams that can affect your character while logged out. Some gives visions, others can boost or disturb.
- Pin-Pouch-Pebble: A form of rock, paper, scissors that you can do with other players.
- Cooking: The ability to cook food and share with other players.
- Journal: An in-game journal that supports taking notes of your journey.
- Play music: Equip an instrument and learn melodies. You will be able to play music together with other players.

Besides this, it will also of course be shaped by all feedback that we get along the way!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current state is a smaller version of what the full release will be. Levels, features, and content of all kinds will be added. But it is a representative flavour of what we want the feel, gameplay, and social space to be like.
The store description is accurate for the Early Access version, but with less content. The version of Early Access available day 1 will have:
- 23 levels
- 12 playable forms
- 113 skills and abilities”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to gradually raise the price when we do large updates to the game.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We plan on having an active dialogue with the community as we release content updates. We have a discord server and the Steam forum for discussion, and we take different forms of input from the community via a menu in-game, that ends up at our public Trello board (https://trello.com/b/mrS6MLRR/book-of-travels).”

About This Game




Join Book of Travels and become part of a unique social roleplaying experience that doesn’t hold your hand. Inspired by genre classics, this is a serene adventure that sets you adrift in a fairytale world... it’s also an invitation to roleplay without the restraints of linear missions and plotlines. Feel at liberty to travel the free wilds and vivid cities of the Braided Shore peninsula. Wander deep into the layers of this hand-drawn world, stumble upon its hidden places or unravel one of its many mysteries. There is no overarching goal and no real beginning or end, but for mortal characters the stakes can be high.

Braided Shore is a vast and intricate world, but meetings with other players are few and far between so your chance encounters will be something special. Choose to collaborate together or to survive alone, either way, you’ll be part of the birth of an exciting new online community, one where many stories will be told.

But take note: This is a game for wayfinders and wanderers and it won’t plan out your route. Instead it will trust you to play in your own style and to shape your own journey. Whichever way you choose to travel, you’ll soon be adding your own chapters to Book of Travels.



  • Authentic roleplaying and individual playstyles
    Pick one of 20+ Forms in a detailed character creation sheet that focuses on personality and identity rather than stats and classes. The game allows you to play in a style that matches your character and to set your own personal goals. Are you a danger-seeking adventurer, a stoic practitioner of magic binding, or a carefree tea drinking gambler?
  • Boundless narrative that won’t hold your hand
    Your travels will present you with countless randomly occurring events making your story unique and each session different from the last. Peel back the layers of diverse plotlines and discover an immensely deep fairytale world.
  • TMO - Tiny Multiplayer Online
    Other players are few, but your paths will cross - it’s up to you to choose to travel together or go it alone. Find vehicles to reach far flung places or just amble through woods together. The absence of guilds and social structures makes your temporary fellowships unique and memorable.
  • A beautiful world of uncertainty
    An intricate and unique world that draws inspiration from old-world fairytales, Eastern mythologies and early industrial eras. Tons of intricate events chains that unlock items, characters, deep world secrets, and hidden gameplay features and tricks.
  • Communicate using symbols
    Learn to use a unique set of symbols to communicate with other players. Unlock new symbols as you encounter new features and places (e.g. you’ll gain the symbol for “city” only after you’ve visited a city). The limitation in communication lays the foundation for a rich and friendly multiplayer experience.
  • Innovative RPG systems
    Define your character by unlocking and mastering 300+ abilities, magical skills and passive feats that will have a huge impact on your character and open up different experiences of the game. Gain experience in numerous ways: by exploring, being courteous, gathering and trading. Battles can be rewarding, but you will learn more in defeat than in victory.
  • The world is a hand painted diorama
    Experience a unique game view perspective ‘painted’ in a richly detailed artstyle. Click to walk like old school RPGs but in scenes with 3-dimensional depth.
  • Committing to the world - together
    Might and Delight studio is fully committed to making this online world grow and live for a long long time - together with you. Much like a dungeon master we will hint about new mysterious scenarios, but it will be up to you, the players, to let us know what we should explore next. Additionally, we’ll add new levels, constantly making the vast world even bigger, adding new playable characters and of course thousands of storylines and events. Stories will change and evolve and eras of new narratives will follow.
