Saturn Valley Online, the Earthbound MMORPG!
We've managed to get the server back up after quite a while of downtime. We also know that SVO is still not quite in a state where you can level up decently with the current turned based battle system. We hope to fix that in an upcoming release.
Things we'll focus on are:
- Battle system
- Shops and Hotels
- NPC Conversations
It's like fate doesn't want us to come back, the power supply of the server broke, please bare with us!
Update: The server has been updated to revision 9 along with the game (version 0.7).
Please post any errors you encounter on the forum.
To see all the new and good stuff check the Version History page.
This is just a quck update to what was done over the weekend by DarkSummon (a friend over at the Netgore engine community):
Hotels (talk to NPC, pay, get sent to your room with full HP/PP)
Incorrect respawn points were fixed
Battle option navigation supports selection by arrow keys and spacebar
A surprise concerning the battle system
Rope climbing animations
World notifications (Player joined/left EB/SVO world)
Clientside commands (e.g. /logout and /quit)
Signs now support text over multiple lines
Brand new Earthbound Character creation wizard
The SVO world will be temporarily unavailable until it is playable
And hopefully more to come soon! We'd love to get out a new release but before that happens the shops, phones and equipment features need some polishing. Stay tuned!
Check out how we add new areas and NPCs in SVO!
Earthbound got released on the Virtual Console today, I guess I'm the first to admit that obviously we didn't make our targeted release date (aka the VC release date) which is today. It's a shame because we've got quite a bit up our sleeves for you guys.
Worry not, though! Our very own mister Kraken (Darkfrost) has finished his student job at a mobile apps software developer and should be able to whip up a few things in the nearby future.
In case you haven't followed the development log, Worship has finished a whole bunch of paperdolling graphics, so customization is very much in the pipeline for one of the next releases! The Earthbound world has been expanded up to the Dusty Dunes Desert as well.
Stay tuned for more Earthbound goodness!
