Snail Games, a leading developer and publisher of interactive entertainment, today released an overview on the use of magic and materials to construct a virtual home base in their upcoming dark fantasy multiplayer survival game, Dark and Light. In the game, players have many options when constructing their home base — such as utilizing a variety of building materials from straw and wood to metal and stone, purchasing housing in a chosen city, or purchasing materials to replicate desired models. As another option, players can collect magical workbenches to craft special high-level materials that feature magical capabilities.
The world of Dark and Light allows players, within realistic limits (no building on top of another structure, for example) to pick a spot and start building their mighty fortress homes virtually anywhere in the game.
Here is the Dark and Light Construction Overview:
Dark and Light gives players the freedom to construct their home base virtually anywhere they want in the world. With only a few restrictions, such as building within existing cities or dungeons, players can pick a spot and start building their own fortress.
Building materials come in a variety of sizes and strengths and range from cheap, weak materials such as straw, wood, and stone, to more advanced materials such as metal or giant castle-sized components. You will start out by manually gathering simple materials like wood and straw with basic tools and progress to craft more advanced tools to mine stone and metal elements. There is a need to advance your magic skills to extract rare, valuable elements for high-tier building materials.
Adventurers who don’t like the idea of constructing a home in the untamed wilderness can purchase housing in their starting city. But beware – the cities themselves aren’t completely impenetrable. City-dwelling players can help defend their home from foreign invaders by constructing unique magical fortifications. Each of the cities – Vardo, Zaharul, and Estel – have their own architectural style which players can study and emulate when constructing their base.
Building large fortresses requires a lot of resources so strategic building plans are important. Players can craft inexpensive “preview” materials that can be used to construct full-sized models before placing real materials. While it’s possible to build almost anywhere in the world there are a couple of limitations; the ground must be flat and the structures not too close together, to avoid overcrowding and griefing by blocking another player’s construction area.
Materials can be crafted anywhere in the world but there are special high-level materials that can only be constructed with a workbench or magic workbench. Getting your hands on these workbenches as soon as possible is important for any serious adventurer. The magic workbenches can create magical weapons, materials, spells, and generators that provide elemental energy, making it a critical part of developing a full arsenal of tools and weapons to help you survive in Dark and Light’s world.
Dark and Light’s website and Steam store page are now live. Players can sign up for the Dark and Light newsletter through the official site to receive regular updates and add the game to their Steam wish lists.
