Hey friends!! 👋😊
Who’s ready to talk about character customization?! 👀 While the alpha testing phase will have limited customization options, we assure you that this is just the beginning. We understand the significance of self-expression and player representation, and we are committed to refining and expanding the character customization feature after the first iteration of alpha. In Island Skies, we want you to feel truly at home by allowing you to be who you want to be at any given moment, without any restrictions. 💖
📬📝 Alpha Testing 📝📬
During the first Island Skies alpha testing phase, character customization will be more rough than other features, as we prioritize testing and refining the core mechanics of the game. But fear not, this is not the final representation of the feature! During alpha, you will have access to the “bare essentials” of character creation. Players can change their hair, skin color, certain facial features and clothing with a limited amount of variation options, but this is just the beginning stages!
Character customization is an important feature in our game, which is why we are taking the extra time to make sure we get it right! Once we move into future alpha testing phases, character customization will be given more focus and developed in greater depth. This is when feedback from YOU will help the growth and development of this feature! We believe that player input is invaluable during this stage, and your feedback will help tremendously. As we gather insights from our dedicated alpha testers, we will be actively working on enhancing the customization system to provide a truly immersive and personalized experience! 🥰
💭⭐ Self Expression ⭐💭
At Fluffnest, we deeply value the significance of self-expression and player identity. To promote inclusivity and diversity, we have made a deliberate decision not to include any gender restrictions or pronouns in our game. When creating your avatar, you won't have to pick a gender. Instead, you'll have the freedom to personalize your character in any way you desire. Your chosen name will be how the Pals refer to you, emphasizing the idea that your identity is entirely your own. We believe this approach allows for a more genuine and fluid representation of players, ensuring everyone can fully embrace their individuality within the virtual world. 💚🌈
🎉💖 Customization Options 💖🎉
As we progress toward the final release, we have big plans for the character customization options in PuffPals: Island Skies. From the color of your skin to the shape of your eyes, and even your choice of ears, we want you to have an array of choices to create a character that truly resonates with you. We're determined to give players the power to be whoever they want to be, fostering a sense of belonging and empowerment within the game. As you venture through our vibrant world, your avatar will evolve and grow, reflecting your journey and experiences. 😊
🏆✨ Our Goals ✨🏆
Our overarching goal for PuffPals: Island Skies is to create a welcoming and inclusive environment that fosters creativity and self-discovery. We want players to feel represented, celebrated, and at ease in their character's shoes. In the spirit of continuous improvement, we plan to release post-final-release updates that introduce additional customization items and content. However, we are mindful of the resources required for such features, and the availability of customization for clothing and accessories may be dependent on our budget and bandwidth.
Character customization is at the core of PuffPals: Island Skies. We aim to provide players with the tools and freedom to express themselves authentically, with no limitations or predefined gender norms. As the game progresses, we are committed to expanding the customization options, incorporating player feedback, and continually refining the experience. We hope Island Skies will be a place where you can truly be who you want to be, and where your unique identity is celebrated and embraced by both the game and its community! 🎉💙
What are you looking forward to most when it comes to customization? 👀
Fluff and Love,
The Fluffnest Team
