KWAAN Receives Major MIAAM Update
KWAAN is an interesting, community-focused MMO being made by Ankama Games that has the misfortune of being overshadowed by its older siblings, Dofus and Wakfu. Despite providing a completely new, combat-less sandbox experience, the game has been sitting in obscurity on Steam Early Access for a while. Nevertheless, Ankama are making sure to provide significant updates regularly.
The MIAAM Update, launched yesterday, is focused on two major features; MIAAM and BAAF. As the developers put it, items left on the ground will now slowly decay into MIAAM, which can be eaten by player Dwaals. If a Dwaal eats too much, they need to take a BAAF. The BAAF must be built prior to this.
Several more minor additions are also included. Frogs, balloon frogs, and baby frogs are all added to the list of creatures that you can encounter. A new home design and new interiors were added with the developers noting that character customization is coming soon. The dance and meditation icons were changed. New Zaaz content, including a new temple, new objects, and new meditation spots were added.
For upcoming updates, the developers noted that they will be testing in-game game master features, including impromptu quests, next week. They also make sure to note that older players may be feeling a bit like there isn't much for them with current updates and that that is fine. The game is supposed to be one with a definitive beginning and end despite being an MMO.
