The twelveth edition of Avarik Saga updates. Read below for our full game development insights on what we’ve worked on and will provide.

The journey through these initial months has been nothing short of remarkable, with each step forward marking significant progress and achievements that continue to shape the future of our game. The excitement and support from our community, especially within the dynamic web3 gaming landscape, fuel our dedication and drive to surpass expectations. Here’s a glimpse into the artistry and innovation that have defined our recent endeavors:

Art Team: The Game of Detail

Our art team has been at the forefront of transforming Avarik Saga into a visually stunning universe that captivates and immerses players. March was dedicated to meticulously refining every visual aspect of our game. From character animations and VFX to live2D illustrations and detailed splash art, our artists have been laser-focused on infusing each asset with life and vibrancy. This dedication to detail not only enhances the player experience but also solidifies Avarik Saga's identity within the anime/waifu genre.

Multiple In-Game Asset Concept

In parallel, we've initiated an ambitious project to upgrade NFT assets, ensuring that they reflect our game's evolving quality and artistry. This effort is crucial in meeting and exceeding our community's expectations, which has been integral to our journey.
