Enderal Exploration Teaser - Heartland




The "Heartland" is the most commonly used name to describe the densely wooded region in the middle of Enderal. It is home both to Ark, the majestic capital city of the country, as well as to several highly-travelled
trade routes connecting Enderals villages and trade-posts. Awry oaktrees and tall scot pines provide for a dense vegetation, and both small and big rivers weave their way through the winding thickets. From time to time,
the daring traveller might find an old crypt or an old ruin, the latter most likely an abandoned trade post from the times of the "Isolation".

New art, new chapter!


Well met,

as this year slowly strolls towards summer (well - in Europe, at least), we're happy to tell you that we're making quite some progress at the moment. Frankly, we haven't shown a lot of ingame-material in the past months, which is, however, apt to change pretty soon. A great part of the regions and levels are now reaching their final stage, and we're also progressing pretty well in terms of gameplay-programming and quest-implementation.

As mentioned a couple of months ago, our artists are currently working hard on improving and optimizing their workflows (and skills) with 3D-modeling software such as ZBrush - which will be a must once we start working on our prototype. We already shared two of the results with you, and we're happy to share another one.

The animal below is a so-called "Leor", a domesticated creature used as a mule as well as for farming in Enderal. We hope you'll like its design as much as we do. :)

Furthermore we'd like to show you a new illustration in the Loading-screen series, this time from a mythical region in Enderal, called the "Lost Forest".

And finally the freshly proofread and translated chapter 4 of the "Butcher".



All the best,

SureAI

Loadingscreens


Hello everyone,

today we want to introduce you to a new feature, whose realisation has been made possible by two talented, new illustratos/concept artists who have joined us recently: Illustrated Loadingscreens.

While we liked the rotatable 3D-Models of Skyrim (Yeah, they are actually rotatable! :mrgreen: ), we still loved the idea and the feeling of hand-drawn, illustrated pictures to ease the waiting times.

Hopefully you will like it as much as we do!

A new artwork...


... after a plentitude of new material, which - unfortauntely - hasn't been as exciting for you English-speaking fans than it has to our German ones! But rest assured, more will follow! :-)

The artwork shows the mood Enderals snowy region, the Northwind-Mountains are trying to capture. Some of you might recognize the ingame-scene of the tavern it shows!

All the best,

Games nine interview now available with English subtitles!


Hi everyone,

Two weeks ago we posted a link to an interview we gave to the Let's Player "Games Nine". Back then it didn't have English captions - understandable due to its immense length of one hour in total - but, now it has. It contains some interesting information about Enderal you might not yet have heard. :)

Enjoy!



All the best,

SureAI

Concept and realization


Some time has passed since our last update - But rest assured, this is mainly due to the fact that we're working quite a lot at the moment and are making very good progress. But enough of the words! :)




Best Wishes,

New interview with Gamersground!


Alex from Gamersground interviewed us once again about Enderal! It has been quite a lot of fun (in spite of the difficulties regarding the sound, which were our fault), and interested fans can be sure to get some interesting, new information!

The interview is in German, but subtitles can be enabled.

Everything comes to an end...


... even the year 2013! :mrgreen:

A lot of things have happened in the past twelve months – Both in the development of Enderal and in our team. We have worked a lot, we overcame obstacles, and we grew closer together through team meetings and the fact, that a lot of us now live in the same city – Munich.
It would be a lie to say that mod development is always easy, because it isn’t. Realizing the vision of a mod project of such great scale doesn’t only require creativity and a whole lot of passion, but above all a lot of stamina, reliability and an eye for the feasibility of one’s own goals. It is so easy to get lost in the invention of countless, unrealizable features!

So now the year has come to an end, and with new experiences under our belt and many miles closer to our goal, a new year is awaiting us – hopefully as productive and insightful as this one! The constant support of our fans, the commitment of our voluntary voice actors, and tokens of appreciation such as achieving the 2nd place in this years “Mod of the year”-awards (Category: Best upcoming) will help us a lot with that. The last one wouldn’t have been possible without your support, and we sincerely want to thank you for all your votes. As well with these words as with a “end of the year”-bundle we have put together to express our gratitude as well as to grant you new insights into the game Enderal will be. We were actually planning to release the second episode of our devblog, but we postponed it since we wanted to give you all something “special”, which you will find at the end of this post. We were unsure on whether to release it or not, but we did – and we hope you will all like it.
That being said, we wish you both a merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2014!

Oorbaya - Concept Art


„There are two ways to deal with the magic that has broken free inside you. The first one: Turn to the Holy Order. They will take care of you, and if you perform well, they might make you one of their own. In their ranks you will learn how to control this raw, undirected power inside you. And the stronger your will, the purer your meditation, the more the magic will bend to your will… and ultimately serve you as a companion, much like a faithful steed which possesses its own will but is in a state of perfect harmony with its rider. If you decide against the Order, you will become one of the pathless men or women we call Wild mages. And even though you might rise to great power this way, this power will be like a rabid Shadow wolf, who possesses the ability to devour anything in its path, but who will ultimately turn against its master. And someday, my son, when your soul has been completely torn apart by the magic in your veins, it will dispose entirely of your bodily shell… and then you will become one of the beasts, which bards and poets alike call “Oorbaya” – or the “Blue Death”. The choice is yours.”

Story Teaser

Since very little has been told about the story of Enderal (Apart from the first chapter of the „Butcher of Ark“, we decided to change that. This is a short teaser aiming to provide a small insight into the themes and the general feel of Enderal’s story. We have been trying to create a world that is both beautiful, fantastic and humorous, but also dark, cruel and deep. But: Don’t tell, show.



Best wishes,

SureAI
