**ALL IMAGES TAKEN FROM WWW.ELDARYA.COM, PROPERTY OF NOT ME. PROBABLY BEEMOOV. GO TO THEIR WEBSITE FOR ALL THE MORE THINGS.**
So ChiNoMiko (who I’m pretty sure goes by “Miiko” in this game) is very close to releasing a new game! It’s called Eldarya, and I am WAY late to the party about this teaser. I knew about the site but never realized that I can click the giant square that says click in French. Durr.
A few thoughts – this game is going to be rad, and obviously much more intense than MCL. For one, it looks like Chino has a LOT more control. The site is still run by beemoov, but here’s hoping.
There are sound effects during the scenes, and animations, too! It’s very exciting :) And the speech bubbles appear and even disappear when someone talks too fast. Oh man.
So this is the demo that is up right now – it’s a teaser and in French, so if you don’t have a way to translate the page through your internet browser, here you go! You can always read along while you click your way through.
(Wow, this library sure is busy!)
(There must be something here to read…)
(It scared me!) Did I call this obviously-not-an-object person an IT? I hope that was google translate gone horribly awry!
Kero: “Hey! What are you doing here?”
“I want to play this game again, I wait for a long time!”
Kero: “I’m sorry, but eveeryone is getting ready. Besides, you should not even be here.”
“But I can not sit still! Tell me or show me something at least!”
Kero: “But I do not have the right!”
“If you pleeease!”
Kero: “Miiko will kill me…Well, you are entitled to a single question. Hurry.”
> I want to see the world you live!
-Mmmm…Okay. I guess I can at least show you the garden. Follow me!
“Oh…the door is open…”
Kero: “STOP! You’ve seen enough already, it would be too dangerous to go outside!”
> I want to discover new creatures!
Kero: “You really have to love our pets. Here’s one that was collected this morning. It’s a Bekola.
They tend to be quite homebodies and like to take naps in the sun. This one is a little shy…Well, let’s say a pet is a companion. It is always by your side and helps you in many occasions. And they are generally very good at exploring the surrounding are and bring finds.”
-The translations for the others are strange. You can just go to the page and scoll over the little eggs. So cute!
> I want to know more about Eldarya guard!
– Well, The great Eel is responsible for resolvings our disputes over Eldarya, and protect the different creatures that live here – aggressions of all kinds. The danger is here or elsewhere…Ahh…It’s a bit hard for someone who does not know Eldarya…The great care Eel is divided into 4 sub-guards, each has its specialties.
When you try to ask another question, he interrupts!
Kero: “No, no no! Stop the questions! I already told you enough! And I kept my word, it’s up to you to leave now!”
“I have a question though…”
Kero: “Well, go, but hurry, you’ve been here too long!”
“Are you available? ;)”
Kero: “Eh? No…I’m sorry but I’m not a guy to flirt with…In fact, you could say that I have someone…”
“Oh, I’m a little disappointed…Can you introduce me to others?”
Kero: “N-no, I told you that everyone is busy!”
“But I just came for the men :(“
Miiko: “KERO! I had told you to…”
Kero: “Miiko arrived! She will not be happy if she sees you or that I told you too much! Leave!”
Kero: “See you soon!”
So it seems similar in gameplay. A bit. Kero has several emotions, so this is cool.
