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. [...]

Arcane Worlds 0.22

I rewrote most of the world generation for this update. It’s now based around the gameplay needs. One can add a bunch of elements needed for the gameplay to the world and the system will build the terrain around that. I left the gameplay about the same for now, but I’ll change that with the [...]

Arcane Worlds 0.17: universe, saved games and more

Another update is released, adding universe map, initial story mode with saved games, configurable controls and minor improvements. The universe is still lacking variety and interesting things, that’ll come in the next updates.

The main feature of this update is trees, not much, but they change how the worlds look and there’s something to burn with lava which I’m going to add in the next updates. There’s also some secret stuff related to trees, but I’ll let you discover it yourself. As usual, you can download the free [...]
