Aro’kai is a AMORPG (Artistic Multiplayer Online Roleplaying Game) where the users are encouraged to explore the vast, seamless world in which several major species thrive. It is a free-roam game where users will be able to interact with NPCs to unlock hidden terrain and talk amongst fellow players.

F.A.Q. (Click)






As a member, you can submit to folder Creator Editor Screenshots, this is for all of your canine creator/feline editor demo screenshots to be shown off. The rest is for the team only. We'll show off our work in the following folders! :)

WORK IN PROGRESS - wips.
SPECIES - model sheets and screenshots.
CONCEPTS - written and illustrated.
ANIMATIONS - model animations.

Hi. I'm sure this was expected by now. First, let me be very clear by saying that we are still going to do a Kickstarter. Just not anytime soon. The feedback that you all have offered on how to direct the Kickstarter has been helpful and informative. I can not express my gratitude toward all of you who have helped out with ideas. While I may only ever reply with "Thanks for the feedback!" (or I don't reply at all), know that I do read your comments and suggestions! For the game, kickstarter, and forum.

We (the administrators) are really busy right now with our real life priorities. So any form of patience you can offer is really appreciated. Please do not pry or pester for our personal information. Once again for your cooperation in this matter, you'll have our deepest gratitude!

For the delay on updates and progress I have heavily considered the release of the old, staff-only multispecies-demo. It has a lot of bugs and some of the models are out-dated. However I also feel it may be a good way to tide a lot of you over until we can provide a new update. On the other hand, answering repeat questions about out-dated models, out-dated animations, and a generally out-dated demo is not something I, or any of the team, really look forward to doing.... so that is on my mind, and I am considering it heavily.

Then there is the alternative of releasing the Decayed Reality/Iko demo for online play. My idea with this is hosting a server two to three times a week for users to play and chat on. Unfortunately, the old, old, old Decayed Reality/Iko demo has no large set of animations, it is only the old waddle wolf model, there is no user/pw system, and no way for the staff to really moderate other than to shut the server down when someone is misbehaving. As you can imagine, this could lead to a lot of problems. So I'm reluctant to this idea. Very reluctant. (Consider it a 2% chance of happening. :XD:)

Will model and animation / texture and marking work continue?

That is up to fatbirdshoes. I think things will continue as they are. Model work here, animation work there, some textures and markings now and then from the team.

When will the forum be 'fixed'?

Hoping relatively soon. I know there's been a few complaints about the Itera skin we use... even if it isn't THAT bad of a skin, LOL.

Can we expect a new demo/new demo content?

Not for some time, but I am considering making a new, updated demo .. for the Kickstarter, mostly.

Lastly, check out this Fundraiser to a good cause that we're doing for one of our very own community members who has hit hard times. It is unusual for us to do this, but they've been around for a while now, and we're sure that our beautiful community can help out.

For the delay in progress and updates this past year, I am sorry. For your unwavering patience, you have our gratitude.

- ONOWL

Have you guys ever considered making an Arokai account on Art station? artstation.com. I discovered it recently, it's an art website that is a lot more professional than deviantArt, and a lot of industry professionals working on game development also have accounts there, it could be a good place where you could potentially spread the word about Arokai.

I am so thrilled, after all this time the game still has progress being made to it and it looks great!
Will there be presets? And will everyone be able to view them, or just the people who download the preset?

There will be presets, and it will be done a bit differently compared to IT and FH.
Everyone will be able to see them.

Quote the FAQ:

Will there be presets?

Yes. Yes, there will be presets. Your preset will have to be approved by the staff first. Why? Because we will be hosting presets online, so everyone can see your preset. Ziel: “You upload the preset texture to Photobucket or another image hosting site, and then in the character editor, select “use preset” under the section of markings you want to change.Then, once you’ve selected that, you’ll get a pop-up window. In that window, you will input the texture image URL. When you get in-world, then your preset texture will be loaded onto your character for anyone to see. People cannot steal your preset unless they know the direct link to the image, and you do not need to give them the file for them to see your preset.”

Hi, I was wondering if this game is still being worked on at this point. Since FeralHeart has basically no opening times, I just found this hoping that it would be open to players. Since it is still in development, would you have some sort of estimation on when it would be released? The game looks fabulous

The game is still being worked on, yes.

We don't give out estimations on when the game will be released, sorry.

Not trying to be rude but I feel like this game is never going to come out. Is it still in development? I know it takes time but it's getting really irritating having to wait so long. I've been waiting since my junior high years and I'm a junior in high school right now. I know I'm not the only one who has been waiting for years and I know the creators have lives too.

Some of us have waited for years. I know the wait can be frustrating, but it isn't going to kill you to have some more patience. Right now everyone seems to be on vacation anyway and Onowl has stated she'll be doing some sort of update come the end of the holidays. All good things in time! To answer you though? Yes, the game is still in development. :) Hope that helps put your worries at ease.
