The Wagadu Chronicles is once again offering up its usual monthly progress report on the development of its upcoming MMORPG, starting off with a large assortment of character customization previews for different skin tones and skin types, hairstyles, accessories, and clothing.
Other points of interest in the update post are work on animations, a further rundown of combat Ui updates, and a healthy dive of the first pass of a reputation system, which will grant players ways to earn favor without having to fight things as the system ties into Wagadu’s crafting and gathering systems. The post also talked up continued updates to questing and shared another round of architecture work.
The game’s Twitter account has been similarly busy, sharing many of the concept artwork pieces that the team at Twin Drums has been doing as well as subtweeting studio founder Allan Cudicio’s 2020 tweet thread about LGBTQIA culture and Africa during Pride Month.
Skin tones are being adapted for the different body types. Additional skin effects such as signs of age as well as manifestation-related body markings are being added to help you realize your characters in the video game. 🥰❤️🔥🤗#MMORPG #black #gamedevelopment pic.twitter.com/2cQnj1Jph5

Who doesn’t love campfires? 👀
These campsites will serve as a place for Wagadian adventurers to get some peace and rest during their travels.🤗
