Black Geyser Revealed Latest Update & Future Roadmap

Black Geyser Revealed Latest Update & Future Roadmap

Black Geyser: Couriers of Darkness, a party-based isometric RPG from GrapeOcean Technologies, shared what’s on the horizon for the game. There is still a long way to go to get the game where the developers want it to be, and the team has been hard at work on the latest update and the future roadmap.

Last week, the team added the community-requested feature Pass Time and a variety of improvements. The most recent update continues adding and tinkering with the features as per the players’ feedback:

  • You can now use the worldmap to travel to reachable areas without the need to visit area border
  • Multiclassing is more worthwhile: previously, XP requirements of chosen classes were summed for multiclassing. These XP sums are now reduced by 20% for using two classes, and 40% for using three classes, making multiclassing more fun.
  • Magical bags for additional item storage: Bottomless Bag of Bulguras and Superabundant Sack of Swinishness
  • Rebalanced final battle and the ability to pre-buff before most key battles

The team also aims to add 37 new Steam achievements, dozens of new banters for the party members, extended companion quests for Bjalla, Jade and Hamlin and dozens of side quest fixes before the end of the month. Other future updates arriving at a later point include quest journal enhancements, customizing the shortcut for in-game highlights, weapon comparison to both equipped sets (three-tooltip comparison), potion case, ingredient pouch & parchment satchel and more.

Finally, last but not least are the developers’ long-term plans that are currently still in works:

  • Finished (extended) companion quest for Arvex
  • Customizable ability bar by player
  • Item descriptions will list the classes that can use the item
  • Pets
  • Strongholds
  • More spells
  • More love for unarmed combat (such as items giving a bonus)
  • Two-handed weapon style
  • Flails
  • Deluxe Edition
  • Game OST as an independent asset
  • Revising many fetch quests to make them more complex and interesting
  • Additional, complex side quests
  • Create a full party during character creation
  • Savegame file compression to reduce disk space usage
  • Modding support (including the possibility to lift class restrictions of races)
  • Additional localizations (translations) of the game
