Happy New Year & Harbor Town Planning!

Happy New Year everyone! It's the first day of the new year and the first day back at the office (yeah we couldn't wait)!

With the new year coming, it's time to plan new things. For us that means it's time to start thinking about the harbor town, a place which has been planned for a long time but never sketched and never discussed in greater detail. So that's what we've done now!

Basically, we've had a huge brainstorming session where we just talked about what we'd like to see in the harbor town, what would be cool and a little how things would look. Here's our list:

The Harbor - Obviously a harbor town needs a harbor or it's not much of a harbor town, right? So we've planned a long dock, next to which there are a bunch of ships. Some will look like regular ships, others might have special themes: a viking ship perhaps, seeing as we're Swedes and all?



"Loading Area" - An area next to the dock with a lot of strange crates and sailor carrying stuff and loading stuff onto carts and such.

Market Place - A pretty big area with lots of market stands: some where you can buy the usual stuff and gear, some that carry exotic items or fruit for show, to give the area a bit of flavor.


The Beach - A small beach with touristy things such as sunbeds and blankets. Tourists walking around enjoying the sand, water and hot weather!

Ice Cream Parlor - Probably next to the beach? But who knows! Anyway, an ice cream parlor filled with tons of ice cream! Probably some tables outside where people can sit and enjoy their treat.

A Church - With Grindea's statue inside and one of those creepy priests!

Houseboat(s) - One or a few, for a more interesting way of living.

Regular Houses - A few where NPCs live, one of which will be an author which you'll help complete the final part of her best selling series! We'll also add this author character earlier in the game, once the library is implemented. We'd like her to have a book signing there in the beginning of the game, up until the festival (or so), for added recognition once you get to the harbor town (where she's forced to live away from all of her fans so she can finally complete the next book)!

Wells and Fountains - The town is in the desert so they better have water available for the heat!


Exciting times! Now we (or well, I) just need to mix all of these things together and make a proper sketch of what the town could look like with all these ingredients included.
