While Tribal Gaming introduced a free-to-play demo of Nestables last month, development on the actual game continued with several AI improvements, jobs and building options. The game now has a furnace, cooking has become more user-friendly, while the cute little Nestables can now remember their jobs after they took a nap.
Nestables really started out as a project with a virtual pet, but is slowly becoming a lot more. The introduction of a furnace allows players to turn sand into glass, and clay into bricks. Players can use glass and bricks for a variety of other features in the future, but it looks like house building is coming.
At the same time the user interface for cooking has been drastically improved. Game elements that have been perfected, will see an overhaul in their presentation. Furthermore the team improved the artificial intelligence of the Nestables. Now they will remember their jobs after they took a nap, but they don’t automatically pick up new tasks. In addition they added new toys for the Nestables to play with, including a slide, a swing and special toys for baby Nestables.
What is Nestables?
In Nestables players need to farm resources using their cubed character. After doing that, players can build all kinds items ranging from beds and kitchens to food and toys. It’s important to keep your Cube happy, so players will need to build toys and furniture that fit the cube’s personality. The cute little Cubes have their own treats, cosmetic features and personality.
Nestables has been in development for quite some time already. The game is part of the Enjin multiverse. Enjin is a gaming project on the Ethereum blockchain. They want to create a metaverse in which game items can be used in several games. They use their standardized ERC-1155 protocol for that. For example, if you have a Nestables character NFT you will see a little Cube following you around while diving into the dungeons of Lost Relics.
