Arcane Worlds 0.23: resources and crafting

So, here’s the serious change to the global gameplay. You won’t find spells in the worlds now, instead you can collect resources to craft them. I might add spells you can find later, but they’ll be very rare, and most likely hidden in some secret places and locked with puzzles.

There’s also a tutorial now. I’ll expand it as I add new mechanics in the next updates.

Let me know what you think of the new gameplay.

Change log:

  • Added resources which can be collected from the worlds and crafted into spells.
  • Added tutorial world.
  • Birds will now flock more and attack together when provoked.
  • Fixed bug that sometimes caused generated worlds to be empty.
  • Fixed bugs that produced wrong distances to portal and castle. Mana recharging and Use Portal spell will work better now.
  • Starting a new game in the used slot will now properly erase all old files.

    Love the game! Can’t wait for the next update. In this version, are we supposed to be able to access all the spells there are altars for? I can’t get the right resources to get anything besides Lightning, Water Globe, and Pit (and I haven’t actually managed to get Lightning yet). Also, there’s always one world I can’t get a portal out of (I think it’s the white one). Is that a known thing, or am I missing something?

    Anyway, like I said, love it and keep up the good work!

    You need to get out of the first group of the worlds to get other resources. There’s a special world with three circles of trees. Consider the spells you crafted (or can craft) and what you can do with them in that world.

    I STILL can’t figure it out – any hints? Can’t ignite the five-leafless tree groups on the white world with fireball or lightning, can’t cast Portal in the middle, and fresh out of ideas even after the .24 update. I do see the three boulders and can guess each somehow corresponds to a circle of trees, but the puzzle itself completely eludes me/

    Hint: plants need water to grow.
