Note: After posting this in the games section and getting virtually no feedback I am taking the advice of the one person who did reply and posting this in the WIP section instead.
Hi everyone, I just wanted to let everyone know that Slothworks Studio is actively in production of our proof of concept demo, The Wanderlust Project. After years of planning, and a few prior attempts at the project, things are finally coming together and we're moving forward.
The game is planned to be a fantasy worldsim (not an RPG!) which takes place on a world much like earth, but far colder, and far drier, and the equivalent of early 18th century earth technology. Magic exists in this world but it is extremely enigmatic and unpredictable, so is not a mainstay of the gameplay.
Rather than roleplaying as a matter of interacting with NPCs, doing quests and grinding levels, gameplay focuses on city-building, nation-building, and interaction between player created businesses, cities, nations, militaries, etc.

I've attached some of our latest concept art at the bottom of this post. Today's batch consists of character archetype thumbnails by E. Burns Wyand.
Feedback would be greatly appreciated, we'd love to hear from you all!
