State of Aurory Address - September 2023
September was made for building. Our team has been hard at work to hit our Q4 objectives and has made great progress across various fronts. We're excited to bring you the latest developments from this past month, so let’s jump right into this update!
The Design team has some big projects on their hands that have carried through the last few months and are reaching a more advanced stage now:
Full Blitz Optimization: The development and UI teams have optimized Blitz Battles to ensure that the experience is not only fast-paced and exhilarating but also player-friendly.
Enhanced Onboarding Experience: As we’re polishing our UI elements and tutorials, we’re making Aurory more intuitive and captivating than ever in preparation for an influx of new players.
Inventory Management: Our UI team has been mapping out flows for our inventory system that will ensure that your items and gear will be easily accessible at any time.
Procedural Land Generation: Our world is vast while its landscapes are unique, hence the need for perfect land generation and spawning!
Intuitive Avatar Customization: Players will have the option to create and customize a base avatar with various outfits.
Story Dialogue: All great games need immersive dialogue to deliver a captivating player experience.
New Reward System: A new reward system is being fleshed out with the goal of accommodating multiple games while rewarding our ecosystem’s biggest contributors and deterring abuse and farming.
Our Design team has also been working to revamp our web ecosystem with a new game hub, notification system, profile progression system, and Amplifier. The profile progression system will be a key feature for our ecosystem by allowing users to level up their account while playing games, completing tasks, and more. The Amplifier will also serve as an important feature that allows players to level up Nefties, bringing additional utility to low-stat Nefties and $AURY.
As we move forward, we're committed to pushing boundaries and ensuring that every aspect of Aurory is a testament to our values and player satisfaction.
Our Environmental Art team has continued their amazing work of redifining the visual landscapes of Aurory. In this effort, they’ve conceptualized new portals, polished Blitz arenas, and created captivating elements that will enrich the various biomes.
Our Character Art team’s main tasks consisted of working on the base avatars and their outfits while polishing the various Blitz Battle icons.
The Rig team has had a busy month, with the new Portal, Shibark, and a mysterious machine all needing to be prepped to be brought to life.
Our Animation team is never short on tasks. They’ve continued creating various Blitz-related animations for our full roster of Nefties and also spent time working on new environmental props that players will find scattered throughout Tokane.
Blitz, Blitz, and more Blitz was on the menu for the VFX team as they worked on ranged attacks, melee attacks, shields, and more!
Our Marketing department has been focused on preparing for upcoming releases and events. We’ll be proudly representing Aurory at Breakpoint in Amsterdam, with a booth at the conference, as well as co-hosting an IRL event on the 31st of October. Let us know on Discord if you’ll be around, and we’ll make sure you get an invite! We’ve also been hosting holders-only tournaments in Aurory Tactics, and are planning to have at least one each month with different rules every time.
In conclusion, September has been a month of great progress as we make our way closer to the next highly anticipated content update of Aurory Adventures. We expect Q4 to be packed with fun surprises, and we look forward to sharing more information soon about what players can expect from our next releases.
Thank you all for your continuous support. Let’s keep pushing!
