- Tovaht Bay Show Spoiler
On the 22nd expedition of the Fan Ages Touring Club we visited Tovaht Bay, by Semjay, initially released on the forum on June 17, 2020. See Minasunda’s video!
Tovaht Bay is a colourful, Neighbourhood-like Age in the middle of a sea, with clearly D’ni architecture. Continuing the storyline from Zahlto – which introduced the character of Ella Darrington, owner of a souvenir shop – two more characters are introduced, archaelogist Samantha Burford and D’ni linguist Pippa Tomkins.
A poster announces a seminar from the Tovaht Archaelogical Society, but also that it has been cancelled. Things seem to be off though: the statue you see in the linking book panel and on the poster has fallen and is lying on the floor, the lights are off, and no one is around. Those paintings may be important
Overall, Tovaht is a great Age, with excellent lighting (although some details are untextured), a good puzzle, and an atmospheric music.
One issue we found in multiplay is that the lights would reset for those who link out, resulting in people getting out of sync with each other relative to the Age state.
A Twitch stream will be available for the next two weeks.
Next time (July 19 at 11:00 KIT) we will visit a few Ages by Jamey: Tsoidahl Sheegahtee, Writer’s Niche, Crater Concept, Vogokh Oglahn. Until then!
