Have you been dying to crack open Book of Travels and see what stories lie within? You’ll have to be patient, dear child, for Might and Delight announced that it’s delaying the mini-MMO from its original June early access release window to sometime later this summer.

“We can tell you Book of Travels really is coming soon, we can tell you it’s all going very well, and we can tell you it will be released this summer,” the studio said. “As you might expect, fixing a solid date for release involves coordinating a fair few aspects and schedules. Right now we’re working on doing just that so that we can nail that date once and for all.”

Early access was originally slated for last fall, then delayed to Q2 of this year. The move to later than June is a move to Q3, marking the second big delay for the game.

Might and Delight also said that it’s going to be making Tuesdays its weekly reveal, whether that be an article or a video chat with a dev. The team recently snapped up a new community manager to handle the growing fanbase.

And, so it begins. Or continues. I know that people wanted to believe in this one because it sounds cute and unique, but how many more times are we going to let ourselves be fooled?

This has to be the most hipster looking “MMO” I’ve ever seen. Being sidescroller, I would imagine playing like one of these games like MapleStory or Elsword, which I never installed for that very reason so I don’t really see how this can be fun without 360° camera freedom. At least not for me.

weird flexing about being close-minded but whatever. While it’s a weird game if you compare it to household names in mmos there are far, far weirder games out there. Here’s one of them:

That game will appeal to the original Roguelike players who were used to their character being the @ symbol.

A game like this would even appeal to me if it had sprites. Even Dwarf Fortress is getting a Steam release and will have official, proper sprites so I can finally give it a try.

Also top-down perspective is superior to the side scroller perspective, proven by Diablo 2 and many other top-down RPGs and MMORPGs, side scroller is just niche and weird, that’s why there are so few games like this – not many people are interested in it.

The perspective also greatly restricts what you can do so it’s not about being close-minded, it’s about having preferences. One day you stop being a bored 16 year old high schooler with a lot of free time and you start valuing your time so you don’t waste it on games you aren’t interested in.

Unfortunate, but it’s also not super far apart.
