Prologue: The Awakening
Prologue: The Awakening is an offline, single-player experience designed to act as a hands-on test of some of the game's most important client feature areas. It ties in closely with Soulbound Studio's "Rope Bridge" philosophy of development, as it is a first opportunity to get feedback from players, even before the Alpha 1 (Pre-Alpha) release of the game client and server.
Currently, players will get exposure to (and provide feedback on) 22 feature areas. These include (but are not limited to):
- The UI system
- Characters & character creation
- Inventory & equipment
- World interaction
- Survival & resting
- Skills and crafting
- NPC interaction & AI
- Crime & punishment
The Prologue serves a dual purpose. While it will initially be "pre-alpha" quality and as such be released to Alpha 1 backers and high influencers only, it also serves as an introduction to the world and the story. In fact, the events of the Prologue are quite significant and take place approximately five Elyrian years before the start of Exposition. As a result, at some point before Exposition SBS will make the Prologue available for all backers to play.
