I’ve been trying to come up with some twists on what we have already seen so far in the Dev cycle.
One of the things that surfaced in my thinking was the introduction of a Town Crier type villager. One who reacts to the Big Changes in game announcements “good” or “bad”.
Examples in how to dress up what we have now.
When a Caravan comes to town we get the message and screen about it, how about the Town Crier comes to life near the Flag and starts ringing his bell.
Similar with the Village attacks from the Goblins use a similar call out but utilize whats is built in via Mobilize and Demobilize Defense button sounds. Rather then him play his bell animation you see him blow the horn.
Upon a Death of a Villager maybe play an Organ or Dirge for the passing villager, or a happy tune for a new villager
Which leads me to the next part of the suggestion over the future of Seasons and Holidays… The town crier could dress up as Santa for Christmas, Halloween Costume. It would allow the Town Crier to have more useful things then just ringing a bell.
Also, Say the Staff wants to have a special announcement for the people, what better way to find out then having your in game Town Crier tell you about it?
Just a thought…
