Ohh look, that one’s special
At first glance, all animals of a herd might look the same, but after closer inspection you’ll start to recognize different colors and patterns. Some special ones might appear on certain seasons or after an event happens.
Develop a bond with the one you like the most and it might want to live with you and let you ride it.
Our ancestors used caves not only for shelter but to leave an impression of the way they lived, perhaps as a way to transcend, to communicate, or simply admiration for the surrounding nature.
The Clan uses cave walls too, to express their Ideas. As part of discovering the world, you’ll get to see their parietal art.
Nokk: What is this “riding” and animal?.
Okka: Make an animal like you, get on its back, and go places.
Okka: Look, this is what I mean.
Nokk: Ohhh, I see. That might work.
Nokk: Why is a heart floating around though?
Grob: So you’re saying that the red thing on the wall is my house.
Grob: But I see my house. It’s right there.
Voda: That’s right, but this is your house too. See, it’s to the left of the main fire.
[Grob tries to enter to painted house in the wall and bangs his head]
Grob: I told you it wasn’t my house!
Some Pachans actually do get the idea of a map. This is how it actually ends up looking after some research has been done.
- Never miss that Pachan you were looking for. Find hints for quests and important stuff they might have to tell you.
- Get an overview of your farm, or that new piece of land that you need to clear. Take a screenshot of your village and share it with your friends.
- See what’s being built and where.
2D is for Draw and Draw it again
If you’ve been following our feed you might have noticed a gradual change of style. As we play the game, we keep making changes to the style so that it can flow with the overall feeling. This month it was the time to refine the backgrounds. We felt it was a bit too cluttered and confusing and wanted to have more space in between things.
Day of the Ancestors
Some say Halloween is a pagan festival. Well, we say it’s a pachan festival
Even though there are no candies nor doors that can be knocked, Pachans remember their ancestors that day.
It is a time to give thanks for the fall harvest (pumpkins, yay!), ask for the upcoming winter to be mild, and to be grateful to those that came before us and made possible that we’re here.
Fires & torches
We had a lot of different fires and wanted to change the style and behavior of them. Here’s a look of the central plaza at night, with a renewed central fire, new torches and lighting system.
Would you like to dance with me?
Who doesn’t like gifts? Isn’t that the way we all develop friendships and eventually love? Don’t get us wrong, we love that mechanic, but we’re also exploring some other ways you might deepen your relationships with the Clan.
Now that we have the dance emote, we thought that dancing with other Pachans, when they feel like it, would be a good way to do it.
November 13th we will be spreading the word of Pacha live on twitch.
We’ll be streaming Roots of Pacha, showcasing the gameplay for the first time ever! Join us to get to know us, watch us play, and for a surprise we’ve worked on this month.
Mark your calendars for Nov 13th and stay tuned for details on the time.
Will Pacha be able to make this our lucky day and impress you?
