Chronicles of Elyria answers questions about biomes

The world of Chronicles of Elyria is full of biomes. That has a bigger impact than you might be thinking, as detailed in the game's latest video Q&A session. It's a brief session, but that means it runs for "only" half an hour, whilst answering a huge pile of player questions along the way. Whatever you want to know about how the game's biomes will affect gameplay, you can probably find it in here.

A biome, of course, includes the environment, resources, and creatures found within a given region. But there's more going on than simply the animals you find to kill; players will be able to alter the biomes (say, by cutting down or planting trees), and the natural environment will affect things like food storage and safety. You can check out the full video just below.

Let us see if they stick to it!  I hope they do, I hope people wreck some areas, and I hope that they do not intervene.  Because what comes after that is what will determine whether gamers and developers going forward look at such systems.  If people do it and just keep doing it regardless, there will be another temporary ban on such things, if they can adapt then we just might get worlds that actually feel like they are worlds that exist outside a huge time groundhogs day time loop.

Can you cut down all the trees and burn oil to cause global warming and turn the entire server into a boiling, dead wasteland?

Wow, 20 year flashback to reading what Ultima Online is going to be like.

Is this one of those super lofty gankbox kickstarters that will have a full cash shop and never get out of early access?

Wow, I was not expecting all those Biomes. I already love all the wildlife they've shown off so far, so if Biomes and thus Biodiversity are going to be such an importance to the game, consider me hyped.
