Unearthed Almanac: Scrapyard

Unearthed Almanac will run once weekly until I finish up some of the more boring aspects of game development (item lists, back-end coding, etc…). Enjoy!

Overview

The Scrapyard is a large cavern that serves as one of the first major “dungeon-crawls” in the game. Futuristic technology sprawls broken and unattended across the area, creating a natural maze of rubble and rusty machinery. Strange creatures – both animal and mechanical – menace those who dare pass.
