What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“There is a warning game developers get when they first begin their Journey. "Do not make an MMO". We at Ravanok saw that as more of a challenge. We set out to make an MMO. Being a 1 person team this is going to take some time. There are a ton of features we hope to implement beyond what we already possess. Player feedback is so very crucial to our development. We continue to build the project with a player first mentality. Listening to player feedback as we continue to improve the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“If everything goes well 1 year.”

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

“Though an MMO never really has a complete version. We aim to have the full version be an amazing swashbuckling experience for those who prefer to set sail on a top down 2d world. Expanding the world. More islands, more mysteries to uncover. Treasure more treasure to find. With the full version of the game we hope to add mac support. Voice acting, and a plethora of features to improve the player experience.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Please refer to the about this page for more details.”

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

“The game will be free to play at all times.”

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

“Being a solo developer making an MMO even in 2d space it is very hard to find every bug. We rely on the players to both provide us with suggestions and report any bugs they may find. Please feel free to join our discord and discuss any bugs found or features you would like to see added. We are also active on the community hub. So feel free to post there as well.”

The Wonderer

This update was filled mostly with refactoring of old code. However i did manage to make some headway with content. You will no longer have to be part of a crew with a ship you will not be able to experience the Black Sea islands.

What's new
You can now upgrade your single person vessel allowing you to enter the Black sea.
This is how.

This item can only be crafted by a carpenter level 600.

The carpenter trainer will sell you the blue print.

Don't forget the material Protonious can only be obtained from scrapping high level equipment.

Use the item on your vessel and you will be able to sail the emerald sea as well as the black sea.

Now, Here are some things we are working on for the next update.

You can actually find this boss online at the moment in Anchor island. He does not have his full move set yet. We are currently testing the Daily System to make sure things are in order. So when you get a moment throw him a L He can drop very good loot at this time.

The next step is to implement an event trackers that provide the player with rewards for slaying these daily nemesis as well as other events that can be procedurally generated.

The Hiatus:
After we released the game on steam I began to work to address any and all issues that came up. Many of our not so common gaming conventions we were accustomed to on byond for instance. Coupled with that scrambling, content and expansion along with work related stress I learned that I was not immune to burn out. I took some time to recover. I have stopped trying to sprint the marathon. Let’s get back to work but before that allow me to thank the people who helped me through this. Kurai, Bjisboss, Minato, Hinokage, Blaze and Cotton. You all warned me to take things slow, I did not listen. Then instead of I told you so, You all told me it was okay to take my time this allowed me to feel less guilty about the time I was taking to recover. Thank you.
