The game will have more focus on base-building, survival, and living life.
In 2006, Japanese indie developer noa released Elona – a roguelike JRPG set in a fantasy world. Over 15 years later, the creator decided to continue the story and launched a Kickstarter campaign for its prequel Elin, which is doing great now.
"In Elin, you will land in the world of Ylva and start a life as an adventurer. Build your bases, recruit your allies, and explore various regions filled with procedurally generated dungeons and quests. Whether you become a hero unraveling the mysteries of the world, a wanted criminal doing all kinds of evil deeds, or a hermit building a gentle paradise where only younger sisters reside, it is up to you what footprints or scars you will leave on this world."
Elin is a completely new game, according to the developer, featuring the gameplay and worldview of its predecessor but with and isometric view and "more focus on base-building, survival, and living life."
As noa states, the new game will have the same freedom of gameplay as before: you can experience a range of activities such as exploring, dungeon crawling, crafting, trading, questing, and, of course, just living a simple life – an aspect the creator seems to be especially proud of.
