Nippon Ichi Software has released a new trailer, information, and screenshots for roguelike RPG void tRrLM(); //Void Terrarium.
Get the details below.
Each of the many dungeons that exist in this world have their own characteristics, and you should explore different dungeons depending on the resources you want to gather.
If your terrarium is heavily polluted, the “Pollution Source” dungeon may reveal the cause.
When you need useful tools, go to to the “Production Plant” dungeon. If humanity was producing machines and tools here, you should definitely be able to get your hands on something.
Dungeons change form each time you enter, so the resources necessary to take care of Toriko and items that aid exploration will randomly appear.
Traps may suddenly appear in the dungeons. If you fall to a dizzy state called “glitch” or step on a trap out of curiosity, you may be warped to a random location.
—The helper robot is not built for combat, but if it is for Toriko, he will do his best to fight.
■ Pollution Forecast
If the weather forecast is for the worse, such as “cloudy” or “stormy,” a haze of pollution spores will occur. Bad weather also affects exploration, as unlike days with good weather, items will become contaminated and enemies stronger due to the pollution.
However, some resources are easier to obtain in bad weather. Since there are also benefits to braving the danger of pollution, try to turn a difficult situation into an opportunity for reward.
The items you can obtain in dungeons each have a “pollution level.” This affects not only the human Toriko, but also robots, so even if you finally obtain an item, there may be times where it is better to avoid using that item depending on the pollution level.
Polluted items will often become “faulty,” so it is essential to determine when to use them.
■ O.S.E. Watch
In the O.S.E. Watch displayed at the bottom left of the screen, you check Toriko’s status. Since you can get notified when there is something wrong with Toriko or when there is an accident in the terrarium while exploring, you can hurry back once alerted. It is OK to explore a little more… But if you ignore the notification and continue exploring, there may no turning back…
—Toriko got bored waiting for the robot to return. But when it returns, she is happy.
By defeating the enemies within the dungeon and heading deeper and deeper inside, the helper robot will acquire new skills and level up. There are various types of skills, including both close-combat and wide-range skills.
—The skill “Strike” will unleash a powerful blow unto the enemy in front of you.
—By activating the skill “Happy Slot,” you can get the item “Happy Capsule.”
Items obtained in dungeons will be converted into “resources” to be used for taking care of Toriko and replenishing the terrarium at the end of exploration. Even if you die during exploration, all of your items will be converted into resources, so picking up all the items you come across until the end is one way of doing things. By using resources to create terrarium decorations and items, the number of items you can hold during exploration will increase, your storage capacity will increase, and both exploration and taking care of Toriko will become more seamless and fruitful.
Toriko seems to sleep comfortably in the “container bed” created by the helper robot. By creating things, craft bonuses that increase the robot’s defense power will also occur. There are various types of beds alone, so remodeling every once in a while is one way of enriching Toriko’s life.
At the base, there is a “Storage Vault” where you can store the items you obtain. Be careful as food will rot if left alone for a long period of time. Food can be eaten even if it rots, but it can take a toll on Toriko’s body. In this polluted world, safe-to-eat food is extremely valuable. Please try to let Toriko eat food that is as fresh as possible.
—The robot gives Toriko food, but she does not eat it. Could she not be in the mood to eat, even though she is hungry?
—In cases where Toriko catches a cold or sleeps for a long time, it is necessary to make decisions according to each situation, such as feeding her liquid food or giving her medicine.
While Toriko can get colds, she can also catch other unknown diseases. Specific treatments are required for each disease, which you can learn from the medical knowledge of factory AI.
—Toriko has fallen ill to the “Chicken Disease,” which causes her to grow feathers. By applying skin cream, you can remove the feathers and treat her.
—The robot has applied the skin cream to Toriko’s body, including her head. Be careful not to apply too much.
—Toriko has fallen ill to the “Crying Disease,” where she cannot stop crying. Perhaps a baby bottle will calm her down…
—Toriko’s body has turned to jelly. If you neglect the sick Toriko, her condition will steadily grow worse.
—Pour the melted Toriko into a template and harden it!
