Devblog, Episode 2: Crafting and Housing

Well met,

after a year's time and thanks to both St. One - a German Let's Player who has played Nehrim for what seems like an eternity - and our talented and commited scripter Sam, the time has finally come: The second episode of our devblog just went online!

This time we'll shed some light on the topic of crafting and housing in Enderal, the former with a brand-new, self-coded system that will hopefully provide for a lot of fun.

Before showing you the video, a shameless plea to all those who haven't done it yet: The - awards, in which we were nominated for the category "Best Upcoming/Most anticipated", have almost come to an end. If you haven't done so already, we'd greatly appreciate a vote for us!

The feedback for our trailer so far has been a blast, which we totally didn't expect. Thanks again!


All the best,

Moddb Voting & Enderal Trailer


The time has come: The – Voting has entered its second phase, and, thanks to you, we made it into the top 100.

This means no less that in the following ten days, it will be decided whether we reach our big goal and gather enough votes to be awarded the first place in the category “Best Upcoming 2014”. In that sense: If you support our project (and us, as a team, since the prize awarded for the winners would really help us for our future planes), please visit our page on Moddb and cast a vote for us. There’s no registration required.

To give you an additional motivation, we prepared something special: Enderal’s first trailer. At that point, thanks once again to Benjamin Britton and David Riedel for lending us their voice.

Once again, the time has come: The 2014 „Mod of the year“-awards are at our doorstep, and we have been nominated again in the category “Best Upcoming”. Last year, due to your support – and to our surprise – we are able to score the 2nd place out of more than 20 000 contestants. Once more, we’d like to express our thanks to you. In that sense: We would officially ask you for your support. Just head over to our – page (Link below) and click the vote button. No registration is required. And, of course, you’ll see plenty of new material in the following weeks. Now, enough of the words: Here’s a brand-new insight into Enderals world.

However, this also means that the only way for us to reach the Top 5 this time is by scoring the first place. Needless to say, that this would be extremely motivating for us. As usual, the voting is split into two parts: First of all, a top 100 is built from all the nominees. Then, a second phase starts, where the ranking among these Top 100 is determined.

„Not all that glisters is gold, my friend. And Ark is no exception, the Undercity sees to that. It always surprises me how good people are looking away. But hey – it’s all right as long as they stay down there and we up here, isn’t it? The Rhâlata has its playing ground that way. And the nobles their nice-looking, neat streets.”

Nevigo Showcase

Hello everyone,

As some of you might already know, we're using Articy Draft, a gamedesign/storywriting-tool from Nevigo since the early stages of development.

Recently, they've interviewed us about the experiences we made with Articy, and published a little showcase on their blog, which can be read here. Those who look carefully enough might even spot some new screenshots!

Once again, a big thanks to Nevigo, who sold us their software for special conditions and thus facilitate the development progress a lot! :)

All the best,

An update, chapter six and northern melodies


A lot has happened recently. Thanks to both dedicated and skilled growth in our team (A UI-Programmer, an animation artist, and a new scripter), we're finally able to reach the level of professional quality we were aiming for from the start. And you can look forward to a load of new video-updates, demonstrating new features, in the next year.

PR has fallen a little short lately, as you've probably already noticed. This is due to the fact that we simply need every free minute we can get to work on Enderal. Nonetheless we've prepared some new material, which will hopefully sweeten the waiting for you.

First of all, the sixth chapter of the "Butcher" has been proofread and translated. For your information: The "authors draft" of the entire book has already been finished, and covers around 250 real-life book-pages. And since many people have asked by now: Yes, you will be able to trace Jaél Tannerssons story in the game, too. Though it is not yet set in stone how complex this side-quest will be.

Secondly, we've prepared two new soundtracks for you. "Frostlanze" ("Frost lance" in English) will acoompany you in the Frostcliff mountains. The same goes for "Nordwinde" ("Northern winds"), which can also be heard at night-time throughout your journeys.

Enderal Exploration Teaser - Frostcliff Mountains

“The Northwind Mountains are a region situated in the far north of Enderal. Though being inhospitable due to their extreme cold and perilous fauna – Lost Ones, Frost Myrads and Glacier elementals, only to mention a few -, they used be well-travelled in the past. This fact was due to the Northwind-mines, where the valuable Northwind rocks were mined, which are rumored to be close to indestructible, thus making them a highly sought-after material for the construction of castles, treasure chambers and fortresses. After the closing of the mines, however, the region was left abandoned, leaving behind ghost villages and dangerous, semi-collapsed mineshafts, which still attract adventurers and treasure hunters.

All the best,

Words on the devblog, the bard-system and the Butcher

Well met,

many of you might wonder, what happened to the devblog since we released the first episode a year ago. The answer is relatively simple: We simply haven't found the time yet. Since July 2013 we continously started to write new episodes and capture new footage, but due to the fact that the schedules of those who are capable of doing the devblog knowledge-wise are way too loaded, it simply never happened. And, lamentably enough, if we have to choose between PR and the overall quality and process of the project, we choose the latter. :(

However, a collaboration with a Let's Player is in prospect. So - no promises here -, there might be a new episode coming pretty soon.

Today, we want to introduce a feature which has been in the works since the early stages of development: The bard-system. Aside from several new instrumental lute and flute-pieces, we work closely with our lector and composer, Holomay to compose bard-songs which can be heard on several occasions ingame. The objective here isn't simply to make the songs beautiful, but to also have them transport lore and the Endralean culture in general. There will be drinking songs, romantic ballads, songs about myths and legends, and religious songs.

In the English version of Enderal, all of the songs will be sung by a professional, English-speaking singer. Unfortunately, the English version of the song we'd like to present today hasn't been finished yet, but it will, soon. For now, some of you might enjoy it nonetheless. :)

A big thanks to Frank, Britta (The German singer) and Jocelyn (The English singer). Without you, this feature would not be possible!

For those of you who like to read, the fifth chapter of the Butcher of Ark has also been proofread and can be read here.

All the best!
