This is one of those stories that the headline effectively tells the tale. Book of Travels, the charming-looking multiplayer game of world wandering, tea sipping, and general cooperation, is headed to beta this coming Wednesday, May 5th. Backers should be receiving an email with a Steam key and details on how to hop in on that date. Incidentally, if you’re among those who isn’t a beta-level backer, you can upgrade your pledge until 8:00 a.m. EDT tomorrow.
In other news, developer Might and Delight used the “forum in games clothes” title Meadow in a philanthropic effort for Safe in Our World, a mental health and gaming charity. Over 10,000 players hopped into the title over the past weekend, with Steam sales going towards the charity effort. The event was such a success that the anniversary elephants that players were trying to find will become a permanent fixture, while new Shelter 3 animals are promised to arrive in the upcoming months.
