The team wanted to say thank you to all who joined us during PAX and we wanted to provide you with an update to where Venture: Journey to Carpathia is heading as well as a few announcements!
We have launched our website, www.carpathiangames.com, which will serve as a single landing page for updates about Venture: JtC, links to our roadmap, all of our social media, and our streamers.
After receiving great feedback from everyone who filled out the form at the end of a game, we are beginning to work on update 2.3 with its keynote feature being the introduction of multiplayer. We are planning to launch 2.3 with 4 person multiplayer so that you all can play with your friends and begin to develop a community for our game, and in the future, we would like to support a higher player count as well.
That being said, we are excited to announce that we have begun work on patch 2.3 and will be bringing you weekly updates via the “updates” channel in our Discord as well as the announcements section on our website.
A note on the future, some other features that are currently being concepted are sailing, combat, and magic systems. The goal of these gameplay mechanics is to increase the diversity of how games progress to help with replayability and to provide other methods of which to achieve victory.
Finally, we are leaving the itch.io demo up for the time being, but are beginning the process of getting Venture: Journey to Carpathia on Steam. This will allow us to push out updates to those who have the game downloaded automatically, instead of it relying on the player to check our itch page and see if there is a new update. We will let you all know when you will be able to add Venture: JtC to your wishlist.
Once again thank you all for your support and feedback, we appreciate every one of you being here.
