French developer, Bidogames, have announced their 2D sandbox game, Nioki. Their outline is as follows:
We would like to keep what makes Terraria-like games great (multiplayer, exploration, construction, bosses, etc.) while adding high definition graphics, associated with a new gameplay and richer contents (a main quest, secondary quests, hundreds of objects…).
The game will also feature RPG traits with a skill tree, and multiplayer gameplays, not only for the fights, but also for some construction missions; cooperation will be needed to explore every aspect of the game.
It is important for us to have a community by our side to provide more contents to the game, both during the development and after the initial release. Players will be able to submit ideas for quests, items, crafting… any idea is appreciated.
