U3.5 Pax Britannia: Virtues Test Released, Lots of Other Progress

Andrew Owen has been keeping busy with his work on U3.5: Pax Britannia. He started the week by releasing an image of the English font he’d be using in the game:

pax-britannia-english-script

Later that day, he also released the runic font, noting an inherent limitation of its small scale:

At this resolution (6×8 font) I’m leaning toward using them sparingly, perhaps just as clues to loot locations that aren’t essential to complete the game.

The following day, he also released an image of the back cover of the Pax Britannia game box:

Wednesday, however, was a busy day indeed, and saw a flurry of information released…beginning with a cryptic image that evidently contains a clue:

Here’s a cryptic clue to the other story I’d like to tell using the U3.5 engine.

Later that day, the first run of cloth maps arrived at his place:

The maps are back from the printers. I’ve included the U4 map for comparison. I’m very happy with the quality and I will happily endorse them. They also have a US-based site. http://www.bagsoflove.com/products/personalized-napkins

I do think the current artwork looks a bit blocky though so I plan to revise it to make it look a bit more natural before I do another batch.

He also managed to do a bit of research on getting game boxes printed:

It looks like the shortest box set production run I’d be able to do is 50 units so I’m going to see if I can do something reasonable with print-on-demand suppliers.

Finally, today, he released a download! It’s a test program released in advance of the character generation portion of Pax Britannia:

I’m planning on having the character generator finished this month. I’ll be providing it as a .TAP file. In order to use it, you’ll need an emulator that supports the ZX Spectrum +2A. I recommend Fuse (http://fuse-emulator.sourceforge.net/). Here then is a test file. If you can get this to work then you’re all set for the release. If you have any problems let me know.

I have added the download, and a link to Fuse, to the project entry, as well as some of the images featured above.
