Louqou, a one-man developer, and publisher Metaboli Publishing have announced that Travellers Rest will be coming to Steam Early Access on July 28.
After a successful run during the Steam Summer Game Festival where there were over 20k wishlist additions, Travellers Rest is coming in 8 days. The game itself is being developed by a single developer where players will take control of a rundown medieval tavern. Players will assume the role of a barkeep and fill mugs, bowls of world-weary travellers and heroes, giving them a night of welcome respite before they go back to doing their jobs.
While players will be serving lots of ale, they will be also finding new ingredients and combining them in different ways in order to discover new combinations that will keep your clientele wanting to return to your bar. However, your guests will also appreciate it if the place is cleaned up and if the place isn't overrun with rowdy drunkards, so you'll have to clean and settle the drunks down as best you can.
Players will also create and serve new wines, items, and foods. You can spread rumors and complete quests, and while doing your job you'll be leveling up, allowing your character to be customised over time. Points gained on leveling up can be spent on six technology trees related to building, nature, magic, cooking, brewing, and socialising.
Travellers Rest will be available on Steam's Early Access on July 28 for 13,99€/ £12.49 / $14.99 minus a 10% release discount.
