The Wagadu Chronicles is in alpha and currently “on track” for a 2023 launch, and developer Twin Drums has a brand new trailer showing what the Afro-fantasy MMORPG is all about.
because The Wagadu Chronicles focuses on the roleplaying aspect, the story, the locations and perhaps most of all the options for the players to make their stories and journeys their own are all very important. It’s a sandbox because of that emphasis on players owning the world and creating their own stories. The game’s world, locations and lore draws from influences across the African continent including South Africa, Congo, Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya and Mali, blending aspects of culture, geology and mythology across Africa.
The new trailer features alpha footage of the game and showcases the importance of player interdependence and choice. Everything from economics relies on gathering and crafting, building your village, growing (both yours and your village’s) and eventually even learning to be diplomatic and build relationships.
Twin Drums wanted to break away from some of the most common MMORPG standard expectations, and they also have a high level of customization where players can choose any available ancestry with any culture available in the game to create their own character. You won’t know what to expect from a given character just by looking at him, since he wants to highlight the variety of options and the large number of customization features.
The focus is on the personal journey within the world and how many other people are shaping the world at the same time. It also means you don’t have to stick to strict classes, but can choose which skills you value. It’s up to you what you want to focus on, but you may also have a village and others depending on what you can bring with you. There are many questions that you must answer as you begin this journey.
You can learn more about the game and apply for future testing at The Wagadu Chronicles.
