Curious Artila KoalaLumpur Posted January 22, 2022 Share Posted January 22, 2022 Hi, all! I got Mutagen over Christmas AND I LOVE IT SO MUCH. I really hope that Jeff is able to remake the other four games. That sounds like many years work, but I hope there's enough interest in the fan base for that to happen. All the new NPCs, in particular, are fantastic. However, it's actually been a really long time since I played Geneforge 1, so I'm not entirely sure what's new and what isn't! There is lots of information about the new game mechanics; this thread is more about other stuff. Apologies if this thread already exists, and if so, please link me to it. This is for new plot elements, changes in lore, new quests, new characters. Here's what I've come up with so far: * Drayks are not Barred creations as in the original, but require a license which is hard to get; * The concept of inutile serviles has changed the dialogue for quite a lot of characters, especially the more isolated serviles in the Junkyard and the Winding Road; * There are four new areas which all have to do with the new Ascended plotline, namely the Inutile Village, the Ascended Labs, Barrens Research and Barrens Bunker (and there is new dialogue pertaining to them); * The Cockatrice, obviously, is a new creation; * Thrackerzod and his people in the Eastern Docks are new, and correspondingly all the dialogue referring to them, and the two new questlines issued by him and Arixy (I'm slightly horrified she's going to want me to kill Rydell, but I haven't got to that bit yet); * The two upgradeable items and the four underground or overground areas (Pentil Woods, Quiet Marshes, Central Labs, Diarazad) where they can be upgraded are new; * I'm pretty sure Janus on the top floor of the Arena is new (he may be my new favourite minor character, sad and disturbing and also really funny; I hope we see more of him in future games, as unlikely as that may be). Also all the canisters seem to be in different places, and as we know, it's necessary to take one canister in this game, which it wasn't in the original. Anything else?
