T4 NewsLetter Issue 1, 12/12/2008
Citizens of Egypt,
After almost 3 years, it is with great pride that I announce the launch of A Tale in the Desert IV:
Saturday, December 13, 12:00 Noon EST (GMT-0500)
Beta was a huge success - the pace of the early game was pleasingly frantic, as it should be, and I hope to be able to keep up a fast pace throughout the Tale. A few pieces of content gave people trouble, including the new mining system, and the greatly expanded ecosystem, but I think that the tuning sessions that we did during beta produced some pretty refined final versions. Of course, there's so much that we didn't get to. Early in the Tale you'll experience the Test of the Kingmaker, the Test of the Constellation, a more refined Cooking system, as well as all sorts of other hidden surprises.
As a final note, you'll notice that I did not sign this newsletter "Teppy (Pharaoh)", but rather, simply "Teppy." It will come as a surprise to long time ATITD players that at the start of A Tale in the Desert IV, there is no Pharaoh, and as the story opens, Pharaoh has just died. Tune in Saturday.
Dawn on the Nile,
