“Character creation” is the watchword of the week at Chronicles of Elyria. In addition to a developer livestream that showed off the first iteration of the character creation system, Soulbound Studios pumped out a blog post to explain some of the finer points of making an avatar in this game.
“Although Chronicles of Elyria is a fantasy game, we want the ranges of character creation to be realistic,” the studio said. “This means that we need to create constraints for each of the tribes when it comes to customization sliders — so no, you can’t create big-head mode. We’re creating an immersive experience, and that means each character created in game needs to look and feel like they belong to the tribe to which they are born.”
Backers for the game will soon have a way to check out their character outside of the alpha, thanks to a standalone program called My Akashic Records that’s in the works.
