Yesterday, Disaster Cake posted the latest development blog post for Soul Saga. They explain that they’ve made quite a lot of progress recently, and that they’ve focused on cutscenes (which are almost completely done). They also began overhauling the airship exploration mode, with the biggest hurdle being the many assets for the airship scenes requiring optimisation (sometime, they even need to be recreated).
The thing is, that new airship exploration will offer seamless open world exploration, which is indeed quite the change. For more details, make sure to check out the development blog post by clicking here!
