- Gavster Show Spoiler
On the 58th expedition of the Fan Ages Touring Club we visited Gavster by Calena, and Denkasen and Canyon by Sirius.
Gavster, released in December 2013, is a pirate cove! After a hard landing from linking atop a long shaft, explorers find themselves in a cave with the skeleton of a massive animal. An (apparently ) unreachable door leads to a series of tunnels, ending in a second cave where the pirate treasure is hidden, haunted by ghosts.
Calena made this age for her then-10-year-old grandson, who gave his official approval. The music is by Kevin MacLeod. At some point the cannon was to be moved inside the ship pointing out to blast a hole in the cave wall.
Denkasen, released in August 2015, is a nice tropical beach, surrounded by tall dunes that hide … tourist villages?
The real feature and ‘secret’ of this age is an interface (look for a turtle ) that allows users to change the water parameters, including colour, wind effects, wave period, etc. and see the results in real time (the visual changes are only only visible to the client that makes them). The feature was meant for use with AlcScript/PyPRP, but it is still an intuitive way of understanding waveset parameters.
Canyon, released in February 2018, is a demo for a massive age (inspired by the game NaissanceE) set in a wide canyon, with mysterious floating domes connected by ramps, containing strange machinery and what look like offices; a village clinging on a rocky wall is visible in the distance. As Andre put it, an “end of the movie, throw the bad guy down a shaft” feel
A recording of the Twitch stream is available.
Next time (April 4 at 11:00 KIT) we will begin the Secret of the Rainbow series by Jhon J. Jaguar, with Shorah Pahts. Until then!
