It's a special moment for us as we release the ninth edition of our Development Diary. Reflecting on a year since we started sharing our journey, we’re filled with gratitude. Initially, we wondered if our development process would interest anyone. But here we are, a year later, with a community that’s grown from just a couple of curious souls to over a thousand passionate followers. So, a huge thank you to all of you – you've been our motivation and guiding light.

Red Covenant: The flagship title of Avarik Saga

We’re thrilled to announce our Avarik Saga’s official game title, launching soon on Google Playstore and iOS App Store: Red Covenant. Inspired by blood magic and dark witchcraft and set against a rich lore, we can’t wait for you to meet the Forsakens, our Demi-goddesses, who will lead you through this adventure.

Art Team Progress:

Character Depth (November to December 2023):

Our focus has been on more than just increasing the number of characters. We believe each character should have a strong story and background. So, as we added new characters, we also worked on their individual stories. Plus, we’ve been enhancing character animations and special effects to make each one stand out. Alongside this, we’ve started enhancing the game’s backgrounds and settings, making sure every step in the world of Red Covenant offers a fresh and exciting experience.

Game Progress: Pioneering Playtests

Initial Play Test Completion (November to December 2023):

One of our biggest achievements this year has been completing our first playtest build. This version includes the core gameplay – summoning characters, battling, developing relationships through a personal messenger in the game, and seeing how these interactions affect character stats. We’re now testing this build with users to get feedback, which will be crucial for shaping our plans for the next year.

Going Forward:

As we march into 2024, our focus is on bringing more of you into the heart of Avarik Saga's development. Whether you've been with us from the start or are just joining in, we're gearing up to make this journey even more inclusive and exciting.

For those eager to dive into our dev release, great news awaits! We're preparing an open build that aims to include as many of you as possible in the following months. We're enthusiastic about having a diverse group of players join us, providing feedback, and shaping the future of our games. (Playing > Watching Video > Looking at a Gameplay Picture)
