- Seekers of Tokane introduces procedurally generated lands to explore using creatures called Nefties, with roguelike RPG gameplay similar to Diablo 3
- New features include avatar customization, more control in PVP battles, and type advantages between Nefties
- Launching on Epic Games Store expands the game’s reach beyond blockchain and improves performance beyond the limitations of a browser-based game
The fantasy world of Aurory expands with its latest addition, bringing roguelike role-playing gameplay to the Pokémon-inspired battler. Seekers of Tokane launches in early access this week, adding procedurally generated lands to explore using magical creatures called Nefties.
Seekers of Tokane Gameplay
Seekers of Tokane has a procedural land generation system, meaning each time a player goes through a portal from the main town, they enter a newly created environment that is never the same twice. Similar to RPGs like Diablo 3, players battle creatures and search for the exit portal back home. If a player dies before escaping, they lose all accumulated loot from that run.
The update includes an avatar customization system with various fashion options for free players. PVP Blitz Battles (like Axie Infinity‘s multiplayer) now offer more control, like choosing moves and swapping Nefties. Nefties also now have type advantages, with certain elements stronger against others.
Expanding Beyond the Browser
Building a blockchain game in a web browser has technical limitations. To improve performance and load times, Seekers of Tokane is also launching on the Epic Games Store. This allows the game to outgrow its browser-based roots.
With its roguelike gameplay and procedurally generated worlds, Seekers of Tokane represents an ambitious expansion of the Aurory universe. Launching on Epic Games Store will introduce the game to a wider audience beyond the blockchain space.
