These are the first concept pieces for Bu. But what is Bu? Bu will be some kind of first episode / side quest. A short experience, but complete in itself. The plot is not directly related to the storyline of Ataru, but the universe, some gameplay features and characters are the same.

I’ve came up with the idea for Bu while I was thinking about a way for the early adopters / first players / beta testers to have a complete experience, in terms of gameplay and story, while waiting for the full game to be playable enough. It will also work as a sandbox for gameplay features. I will probably test and implement them in Bu, then after some refining, incorporate them in the main Ataru demo and beta.

I hope the players will enjoy Bu, as a dramatic and dynamic experience and as entertainment. And it will also work as an introduction to the symbolic universe of Ataru.
