EDIT: Caboose uploaded the images a few hours after I uploaded these.

That scared knight thing is pretty interesting… the fact he talks to you leads me to believe he’s a storekeeper. Maybe he runs the LC Legends store? I just think that if he’s to act scared, he should be of a lower rank. After all, that guy took down two dragons already. (But then again, he seems to be separated from his teammates, so…)

Also, I’m glad Neptune looks scientifically accurate.

EDIT: It could also be a part of the ocean expansion, or, you know… P39.

That bottom image is gorgeous. Can’t wait to see it in game. Also very interested in what’s going on with the Knight and the rollercoaster. I’m guessing it’s just a test image but it’d be interesting if the coaster had some kind of fake VR functionality similar to Galactica at Alton Towers and other VR coasters around the world.


#4167

The scared knight screenshots look really good. I’m loving the location they’re in already ;3


#4168

Kinda looks like the camping grounds map from gmt


#4169

Exactly why would you make talking characters? I like the concept!

Is it raining, is it snowing, is a hurricane a blowing.


#4172

dude i really want optional tiny story elements in tu with npc’s that have an actual personality

but of course there are the lorehaters that don’t want any kind of story in their game (like tower unite is your game, c’mon man)


#4173

I’m all for microstories and storytelling elements, but againts any larger lore.

Mostly because it wouldn’t, IMO, fit the game. Tower is essentially a virtual resort you, as the player, visit through your avatar. There doesn’t need to be a layer of lore disconnecting you from the person you control and giving you reasons why they’re there. I’d say, as a rule of thumb, any lore would be fine as long as it wouldn’t concern the players’ avatars or the nature of the world they inhabit/visit.

And, as a proper lorenerd, I would get salty my headcanon was confirmed to be false :c.


#4174

Dialogue is for other characters. There is no official story that describes why you are at Tower or who you are and there never will be.


#4175

Ah, perfect.

But let’s face it, Tower is heaven, we’re all dead, the Stray merchant is Satan and the catsacks are sinners, doomed to forever stare at the paradise they can’t enjoy, be torn apart and disposed of.
I’m kidding, of course.

#4177

I want a group of NPCs wearing tin-foil hats in the middle of nowhere that tell you that everyone is dead and Tower Unite is heaven.


#4178

Please, I want this.


#4179

They should be standing around one of those “conspiracy theory boards”, with red lines connecting various photos, screenshots, printed-out forum posts and the lyrics to the Kickstarter theme.
And to complete the trope, they should have some really stupid “artifact” on a fancy marble pedestal.
