Project Gorgon literally brews up something special
Now that we’ve got your attention, let us point you to Project Gorgon and the latest development to come out of this ambitious and slightly insane project. So, yes, beer. Specifically, the brewing crafting profession, which the devs say will be one of the more complex systems in the game that will piggyback off of other crafting skills such as cheesemaking.
What’s really interesting here is that brewing will encourage ingredient experimentation and have unique results per player: “Other characters who try the same recipe may get different results. I think this adds some fun to the crafting process, as you get to experiment on your own — and there’s no temptation to wiki the ‘right’ brew recipes, since the recipes are unique to you!”
And with alcohol comes elation, bravado, hangover, and regret. All of this will be rolled into another new skill in the game, alcohol tolerance. By increasing this value, players can avoid negative effects (such as passing out) and become a functional alcoholic or a “drunken kung-fu master.” This game, people.
