    Dark and Light™ Release for May 30th

    I just got this press release from Farlan Entertainment straight from E3! It seems that they took some time to balnace things a bit better and polished up the whole game. Now they are ready to let the masses at it!

    "Dark and Light will be available for download four days earlier, on May 26th, 2006, at 1pm UTC.

    According to César Jacquet, manager of NPCube, “As the April 2006 release date got closer, we realized we were not satisfied with the balancing and debugging, so the development team decided to postpone the release until the best conditions” were in place."

  • Well that's a word you won't hear developers use in a positive light that often... Exploit.

    There are six kinds of natural resources: wood, stone, metal, crystals, water/gas and animal products. They are used in the building and maintenance of a fort, as well as maintaining mana fountains. Each resource has its own purpose; animal products (strings, leather and others) are used for tents, water for life at the castle, etc. The resources can be found all over Ganareth, but you will have to find the suitable areas for the resource you are looking for. For example: On a mountain, you will gather mainly stone and metal, and not much wood.

  • It happens to the best of games. My thoughts on this? Good! Finally developers are getting the fact that they shouldn't launch before the game is ready!

    Granted it's not a huge delay, only a few weeks off.

    As the developers are currently working on the final testing and balancing tasks in the Dark and Light private beta, they must regretfully choose to postpone the release of Dark and Light. César Jacquet, manager of NPCube, explains: “As the release date gets closer, we are not satisfied enough with the balancing and debugging, and do not wish to release Dark and Light just yet. After many ups and downs (the chikungunya epidemic on Reunion island , as well as logistic issues), the development team wishes to release Dark and Light in the best possible condition to make up for the delay, and to reward Players who put their trust in us and expect a lot from Dark and Light. This is why Farlan agrees with the recommendations of NPCube nd has pushed the release date back.

    Good for you guys!

  • All good things must come to an end. This doesn't mean that Dark and Light is ending. It means that it's just beginning!

    THE time has come for Pioneers to place their commemorative stele in the world of Ganareth and to reach the highest level available on their character for those who still haven’t done it... the countdown for the end of SoG has begun.

    Many questions appeared as the closure draws nearer. Here is how Pioneers will find their inheritance at the beginning of Dark and Light.

    - The SoG character who will be used for the inheritance will be the highest leveled character. If multiple characters reached the same level, only one of them will be kept. The best way to choose the character that you want as your ancestor is to keep only one character in each account, and to delete the others before SoG ends. However, if some people fail to keep only one of them, the character chosen as the ancestor will be the oldest character (the one that was created first).

    - The commemorative stele that will be kept on Dark and Light’s lands will be the stele associated with the character from which Pioneers will gain their inheritance. Warning, steles placed on gaming zones (roads, villages, departure and arrival points of transports and the al-drifa barony) will be deleted.

    - Goths’ repartition for the heir will be made according to the following (these amounts are totally independent of the amount the Pioneer had in SoG):
    250 000 Goths if your character has reached level 35
    200 000 Goths if your character has reached level 30 or higher
    150 000 Goths if your character has reached level 20 or higher
    100 000 Goths if your character has reached level 10 or higher
    50 000 Goths if your character has reached a lower level than 10

    - A specific command will allow Pioneers, whenever they wish to use it and on whichever character they want to use it for, to activate their inheritance. This command will be sent by e-mail to every Pioneer.

    - Additionally the final level of the Pioneers’ ancestor will be transferred to the character that receives the inheritance.

    Irzigandar will send the ultimate information to Pioneers by e-mail before Dark and Light begins.

    See you very soon!

  • Looks like a little mini dev journal here. What it is though is a list of what the current priorities are for the Dark and Light dev team.

    Current development priorities:

    Craft :

    # The lists of ingredients for recipes are being finalized,
    # Workshops are being built in every kingdom.
    The land:

    # Balancing of the zoning in Ganareth in order to organize the domains into a leveled hierarchy.
    # Creation of three key maps to make living in Ganareth easier:
    # a player density map that will allow you to locate the populated zones easily,
    # a political map of kingdoms, duchies, counties and baronies to allow people to identify the alignment of every domain,
    # a map of the mana towers’ influences, for a better knowledge of the zones of influence of every tower.
    Placement of new cities in the kingdoms opened in Dark and Light (the Dark and the Light kingdoms, amongst others).
