Palia shares more key character details and a peaceful outdoor scene

    
11

Followers of the upcoming self-described community simulation MMO Palia are likely eager to get any new details they can get out of the developing title (especially since pre-alpha invites were slow to come and scarce), so how about some more NPC informational cards? After all, this game is very much about cooperation and meeting people at its core, and the game’s NPCs are going to be heavily interactive.

The new lineup of key character reveals include the rebellious young Magistrate’s daughter Kenyatta, the energetic delivery boy Auni, and the hunter Hassian and his good doggo friend Hau. These three join the lineup of other key character reveals, with more promised to be unveiled as the game’s Discord community votes on who gets showcased next. As for actual game development news, well, there’s not much there, but there is a tranquil outdoor scene near some ruins for players to immerse themselves in by way of a looping video clip, which we’ve embedded below along with the aforementioned NPC informational cards.

Anybody know if this is linked to Chinese devs/publishers at all?

I really hope this works out. I’m an oldschool MMORPG guy so that’s generally what I prefer, but my wife has recently picked up playing games like Animal Crossing with my son and this was kind of her gateway into games. I can’t stand that game, but something with a little more depth like Palia might be something we could enjoy together.

It might fill the space that FreeRealms and Landmark had, those games are unfortunately dead and gone

I’m very eager to hear what their definition and implementation of “adventure” is in regards to the exploration and unraveling the mysteries of the past.
It’s not going to be combat. Will it be environment puzzles? Minigames? Point & click adventure? Platforming (oh gods I hope not)?

A little bit of everything?
…wait. Wildstar Paths done right?? :p

if this is a social game you’d better have a robust avatar creator.

Agreed!
I don’t want to be confronted with clones with different hair style and eye color at every turn.
I want different body shapes and heights and a plethora of other customizations in addition just my wardrobe.

In the trailer I saw the chunky elf bartender and I was like, “I wanna play him!!”
Oh. We’re all humans. K’ I guess. But can I be built like Bluto?? :p

I know what they’ve shared is limited but I’m getting a very strong Wildstar vibe from the scenes so far. Makes me wonder when the purple body horror zones are coming (gods I hope not, lol).

Granted a lot of that is the color pallet. Heck the ruins kinda have an Eldan feel to them.

Aye the style reminds me of the lovechild of Wildstar and My Time At Portia. :p
