Additional Details Regarding the Demo of Fabrication [Applications Open]

These details have been revealed ahead of the scheduled date, Tuesday 9th Feburary 2019.

The demo of Fabrication will be a closed alpha test. Here is what is available in the demo:

- Playable Chapter 1 and 2 of the game.
- Full story within these chapters are included.
- Most mechanics within these chapters are also developed.

Here is what will be unfinished in the demo, but will be completed in the final game:
- The battle system
- The game balance
- Most of the game's database
- NPCs and sidequests

The demo will be sent out to testers who apply and are accepted.
Conditions for acception:
- You must have completed the main and alternate ending of White Pearl

When you play the demo, I expect you to QA (test) it for bugs. It is likely going to be riddled with bugs at this early stage.

If you QA the demo to an impressive standard, you will be noted down to recieve a free Steam Key for the game at the time of release.

Your results of QA in a .pdf format is encouraged. Once finished, send me the .pdf to hargill321@gmail.com.

If you interested in testing the demo, shoot me a message. You are more likely to be accepted if you offer postive/negative feedback for White Pearl, as this will be transitioned over to Fabrication's development.

We still have a long way to go before Fabrication's release. I haven't worked on the game itself since October 2018, as my free time is becoming increasingly limited through my work and education. That said, this demo will act as a motivator for me as well as keep players occupied.

That said, this game will eventually release. I have already paid for the game's Steam presence in July 2018 and completed most of the store page in August 2018.

If you have played the demo, discussion is encouraged. You are allowed to use White Pearl's forums.

Thanks for reading, and I really hope to hear from some of you.

Regarding Fabrication, there is much news to share.

A new trailer for Fabrication is planned to be released on Tuesday, January 29th 2019. It will feature the mechanics of the main character, Crimson, on the field, as well as some other mechanics used in the game. We hope you enjoy the new music to come with the trailer too!

Reviews

“Lots of lore and dialogue, lots of care has been put into establishing the world of White Pearl and it shows.”
Recommended – Hopeless Dreamer

“It features lots of skills and spells and varied to please everyone and a crafting system to upgrade or even make gear to try to remove the annoying grinding that plagues RPGs, and short travel distances between areas. The bosses have been evened out still require a bit of levelling Sidequests aren't long and dragged out. Stats and abilities of skill/spells/items are fairly easy to understand so it won't take long to get the hang of what to wear/use. Though there are bugs in the game, the developer is interactive with the community and uses the feedback to fix these as quick as possible and also makes new content for the game.”
Recommended – ROB VR

For the full experience...

Please make sure to install the Chronicle Edition DLC (which may install automatically) as it comes with a full official guide, manual and lots of extras!
You are able to change the aspect ratio of the game window with F6 and F5.

Once major patches are finished, their changes are complied into "Patch Notes" uploaded on the game's itch.io website. To Steam players, this is not of much concern since they will get the changes incrementally over time, and notes of that can be found in the game forums - under "Updates".

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.
