Art Refreshments and VotingOur amazing artists have been hard at work for you! With new companions, pals, and updating some older art to make it more special for opening Just a little sneak peak (shh you didn't hear it from me)... Several of the Water Types and others are getting some pretty big face lifts to make things more consistent and to match lore. The wiki is moving onsite and will be updated to reflect that. We've also been at work filling in the species of pals on the planet.
But how about we make things a little more interesting? We want to get you
involved in our process too!
We'll be starting up polling threads in the forums where you get to vote for some aspects of art. Next item set to be created, pal colors, wardrobe sets, etc... we hope you'll join us as we keep adding to the site
Fanwork Publishing Contest
Also known as "Book Ink"
, Kasaria's ingame publishing house. Book Ink will be a contest on Kasaria that takes the best fan work submitted (short stories, comics, collaborations, etc) and releases them as actual readable books with credit on the game! Works that don't win can be submitted in future contests and can also earn a special currency.
Simply visit the Book Ink section of the forum to read the short guidelines and post your submission!.This contest will end on February 5th, and winners will be announced shortly after.
You might remember the comic by our first winner, Kami~
Programming Status and LAUNCH!!!
Unfortunately the programming is something that can't be rushed! I want to be as transparent as I can with you all, it's been taking a bit longer than expected. It takes a lot to make a pet site, but I promise I'm sticking with it to bring Kasaria to the light of day! I appreciate everyone's hard work and patience
You bet I'm gonna throw in something extra special for you loyal fans!
Without further ado, here's the main things we're working on:
-Promo Code Redemption
-Final touches to connect some features
-Testing & Bug Fixes
Provided all goes according to plan... we're really pushing to launch on April 22nd, Earth Day
There is a lot of art assets, miniquests, and lore that I feel is important to be there for our Grand Opening. The rate that players discover this depend on their user level (basically how much they play the site). If I don't have enough content in advance for the first couple of continents, Kasaria might be released on Earth Day as Beta Testing
Everyone who owns a BOOSTER PACK from our Fund Page or past Indiegogo can be Beta Testers. We don't anticipate Beta Testing to last long, but it will be a fun chance for you all to finally see the progress and have more of a direct input on what's going on. All Beta progress will be wiped, but before grand opening happens, you all will still be able to start a few days before Grand Opening (3 or 5 days, depending on your specific Booster Pack)
Either way, IT'S HAPPENING! GET EXCITED!!!!
