Palia promises plenty of customization for characters and homes in Twitter thread


We all know that customization is the true endgame in MMOs, but just how much of that will be present in Palia, the in-development “community simulation MMO” that was first unveiled this past June? According to a posting on Twitter, there will be customization aplenty, both for character homes and for characters themselves.

Confirmation of home customization features comes from game director Aidan Karabaich, who answered a question about how much creativity will be available in housing and decor.

“Our goal is to always be expanding the creative possibilities available for players to customize their housing plots. So expect a robust system at launch that continues to regularly expand with new content and systems over time.

“For example, we started the pre-alpha without the ability to customize wallpaper, but added it halfway through. Now it’s a new system we’ll be producing new content for regularly.”

A reply to that Twitter posting offers some initial details for character customization as well, promising lots of creativity in terms of character appearance. “You can absolutely shift your outfit and our goal is to have a wide variety of options; fashion is a big part of our game’s culture,” reads a reply from another dev. “But at launch, realistically, these will be pretty limited compared to our ambitions. Our plan is to constantly up our fashion game and give you everything from runway looks to hobo chic.”

Readers will recall that Palia has only gone through one test phase to this point: a pre-alpha that only invited 200 people in. That said, the devs have been putting out informational tidbits since then, including a wrap-up of said pre-alpha, plenty of NPC details, and more recently a look at gameplay.

Can’t take any MMO development effort seriously that uses Twitter in their official communications.
