What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

Yaoling: Mythical Journey is an expansive game with varying gameplay mechanics, so we want to get as much feedback from players as possible to shape the game according to all of your valuable suggestions. Be it gameplay, polish, quality of life, we want to create the best possible experience for our players.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect to be in early access until at least 2025. This could change depending on the feedback we receive as we want to ensure the final product meets the standard that our players expect.”

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

“The gameplay and mechanics are fully functional in the early access, while the official version is expected to be completed in 2025. We will further polish the game based on the feedback we get during early access, which potentially include more Yaolings, explorable regions, and a more complete game world.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“In the current version, all the gameplay mechanics are in place and we are working to fix and polish the overall experience. The current state of the game contains dozens of areas to explore, hundreds of Yaolings to discover, and many different gameplay surprises intertwined with the main story. The main narrative will take you through the vibrant world as you challenge different schools and face off against the demon lords, but the result of the finale is yet to be decided…

Our goal is to provide players with a relaxing and fun experience with the freedom to shape this journey however they see fit!”

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

“We will likely gradually increase the price as new content and features are released.”

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

“We have already received tons of feedback from our community regarding what can be improved and what everyone would like to see going forward. We will continue to gather these feedbacks to improve the overall experience. If you would like to help contribute, feel free to join our Discord server!”

A Mythical Journey

"Yaoling: Mythical Journey" takes place on the mysterious Land of the Ancients, where unique environments gave birth to different types of Yaolings. With the combined efforts of the Divine Jade Tree and Yaoling Keepers, Yaolings have become inseparable friends and companions to humans. However, a dark power brews behind the seemingly harmonious veil, stirring up unease among the Yaolings…

Diverse and Unique Yaolings

The Land of the Ancients is home to over 300 types of fantastical Yaolings of unique species, characteristics, and abilities. Every Yaoling is unique due to their combination of stats and talents. As they gain combat experience, Yaolings can evolve into more powerful forms, many of which might bring you unexpected surprises!

Yaoling Keeping Mastery

No Yaolings are weak in the hands of an adept Yaoling Keeper! On your journey to become an outstanding Yaoling Keeper, you must learn the abilities and talents of different Yaolings, be flexible in creating strong lineups, and devise strategies against different opponents and situations.

Rare Yaoling Encounters

In rare circumstances, you may encounter Yaolings with unusual colors, shiny appearances, or larger sizes during your journey. Rumor has it that some Yaolings may even possess all these traits simultaneously! These unique features will be retained through level-ups and evolution. One would wonder what other surprises await Yaoling Keepers on this mythical journey?

Forging a Home

Rescue companions in times of crisis and invite them to help build up your village. They will unlock useful buildings such as restaurants, training grounds, breeding dens, and more! In addition to their excellence in combat, some Yaolings make great helpers for farming, mining, cooking, and crafting.

Dangerous Demon Lords

For unknown reasons, Yaolings are becoming restless and transforming into demons, with some even becoming unique demon lords. Defeating these demon lords will help them regain their consciousness, turning them back into their innocent baby forms to fight alongside you.

Unfold Your Story

As a destined Yaoling Keeper, you will venture through the beautiful land alongside your Yaolings, procuring hidden treasures, challenging Schools of Yaoling Keepers, and face off against powerful Demon Lords. You can catch and document Yaolings you encounter, explore different line-ups during battles, or simply fish along the waterbanks. Your journey is for you to unfold!

The Magic of Charms

Knowing the right time and place to use charms is an essential skill for a Yaoling Keeper. Spells casted through charms can both provide buffs and healing for allies, while damaging and crippling enemies. Some are even used to forge bonds with Yaolings. Casting charms outside of battle may bring about many surprises!
