Forgotten Rune Wizard's Cult dropped a massive update on the development of the Forgotten Runiverse and an update on the global distribution deal for its upcoming comic book series.
- Unique city architecture and expandable neighborhoods
- Diverse battle scenes for landmarks, dungeons, and regions
- Varied enemies, skills, and status effects in battles
- Rewards include customizable decorations for player houses
- Economy design and whitepaper still in progress
Cities in the game have received a refreshing update, with each one now boasting unique architecture and a variety of explorable neighborhoods. Neighborhoods act as self-contained instances within larger cities, allowing for continuous growth and expansion as new content is released, keeping cities relevant to gameplay experiences.
The team has also made impressive progress on the game's battle scenes, with unique visuals for every landmark, dungeon, and region. Alongside these scenes, new enemy types have been introduced, each belonging to a "family" with aligned traits across basic, elite, and boss enemies. Skills used in battles now feature unique artwork and can inflict status effects depending on their type and strength.
As players achieve victories in battles, they can earn rewards that allow them to craft and customize their house decorations. To obtain the most impressive rewards, players need to delve deep into the game's dungeons.
Behind the scenes, the level design and programming team have been testing and defining collision for objects and environments, while the design team is refining the game's economy in preparation for the release of a whitepaper.
❗Why It Matters
Despite building since early 2021, Forgotten Runes has been overshadowed by many other "more shiny" projects in the NFT space. This update provides a glimpse of the major ambitions of the project as well as the potential its IP and lore hold. While many may be aware of the sums thrown at Yuga Labs, it's easy to forget that Forgotten Runes has also raised a massive warchest to tackle its roadmap.
📊 By the Numbers
The Forgotten Runes Wizard's Cult holds a floor price of 0.8 ETH and has been pretty stable in that range, though down 13 percent over the past 30 days.

In a Twitter thread this afternoon, Forgotten Runes founder Dotta (@dotta) outlined several new details for their upcoming Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game ("MMORPG"). The thread is mostly focused on the combat mechanics of the game, which Dotta describes as "dynamic, strategic, and rewarding."
Highlights from the update include:
- Memory Crystals will be earned to customize character abilities, which build on each other
- Each player will have to eventually choose a Color Path, defining different factions with different specialties
- Specialization will unlock the ability to gather High Crystals, which unlock higher abilities
- There will be three tiers of enemies, including Minions, Elites, and Bosses
- Dungeons and enemies will scale with character levels, and Dungeons will involve progressively harder fights and will provide rewards
- There will be active PVP areas of the world, and the player initiating combat has an advantage
- Victory: defeating an enemy yields XP and resources to upgrade your character
Beyond those details, Dotta shared that the team of 35 full-time resources (35!) is making great progress and expects a fully playable game in Q1 2023.
Dotta also throws shade at other play-to-earn crypto games, calling them "yield farms with pretty pictures," and goes on to describe the Forgotten Runiverse game as a "full World-of-Warcraft style MMO built by industry veterans who know how to build a *fun* game, grounded in crypto-ownership."
