READ BEFORE PLAYING - Alpha 8 is now Available!
During Alpha 8 we will release several smaller patches bringing new features and content instead of a single large one, this means that this version of alpha 8 is far from done.

Information about this release
This release in particular has no new items, quests or abilities. It's main purpose is to test the compability and performance of the new lighting engine as well as test the new enemy AI's impact on server performance. It will also give a small preview of what to expect from the new zone, The Hollows which entrance can be found to the far right in Claystone Cliffs just before the Ogre area.
Enemies are supposed to be able to do ranged attacks through the ground, they should not be able to attack you without you being able to get to them and attack them though. If this ever proves problematic let me know.

Download Launcher
If you've already downloaded a previous version of the game it'll auto-update if you try to launch it.

Requirements:
.NET Framework 4.5

Current Features
  • New Zone: The Hollows
  • Level Cap raised to level 30
  • Completely remade lighting engine
  • Overhauled enemy AI with pathfinding (not fully implemented yet, enemies don't pathfind back to spawn or follow calculated paths correctly)
  • Fixed a logic mistake in the camera code making the player jitter when the camera moves
  • New music in Eastern Flats
  • New music in Claystone Cliffs
  • It's now night-time in Eastern Flats and Claystone cliffs
  • New torch particles
  • Texture atlas-based rendering, automatically generated on patch publishing

Alpha 8 Roadmap
  • Zone: The Hollows (60%)
  • Boss: The Irked (10%)
  • Class: Archer (5%)
  • Feature: Banking (0%)
  • New Feature: Mining (0%)
  • New Feature: Professions (0%)
  • New Profession: Blacksmithing (0%)
  • Overhauled lighting engine (100%)
  • Overhauled Enemy AI (80%)
  • Camera updates (100%)
  • Equipment-interface updates (20%)
  • Add more quests and polish Eastern Flats and Claystone Cliffs (15%)
  • Day-night cycle (10%)

Until next time,
HighQuality

It's been a while since I was here.

Managed to crash the game using "/toggle_shadow": http://pastebin.com/MvcMsQSA

One thing for your own privacy, you might wanna snip out the whole C:\Users\YourName\Documents\Wuka-World from the executable. I mean, you don't want your name splattered all over pastebin :D.

It's kinda sad my inventory is full, and I can't seem to drop items :(.
Finally a new signature.

Really great game!

I'm playing for some hours now and currently I'm lvl 14.

I have a question: Can you please give me the sword you get in the chest back? I sold it by accident :( You can also take 50 gold for it or whatever I got for it

Noted and "taken care of", don't have a revealing windows username anymore. Also, not super concerned with my privacy since I'll be entering the game development field and won't really be able to pass up the opportunity to put any of this game on my public CV.

You should be able to by hovering them outside of your inventory, although some unique/only obtainable once items aren't droppable. Will add a right-click menu to items sometimes in this alpha to make it clearer and to allow for multiple slots for the same equipment types and unequipping stuff.

Would love to, but since we're pretty early on in the development of our ingame moderation tools we have minimal control over offline characters and their history. There'll be plenty of opportunities to get new equipment in an update or two though since one of the major areas of focus during this stage of development is adding new items.

Development is now back on track, you can follow our progress on twitter, @WukaDev.
A hotfix has been put out for a few issues in the game and the lighting won't flicker anymore. Alpha 8:1 can be expected within a few days containing some new quest areas and a bunch loot.
