You start each journey in the fantasy world of Braided Shore. Here you create a unique character by selecting a star sign, backstory, and personality traits. You then head off to explore the land.
Along with the friendly encounters and crafting there is some combat and more challenging moments. You gain abilities and spells by brewing tea and learning to tie knots. You can also learn an instrument in the game and gain new music to accompany you as you progress. Unlike other role-play games Book of Travels has no overarching goals, beginning, or end. You create your own adventure as you push into the varied biomes and tundra of the fantasy world.
"Bound by shared moments of wonder, we lend each other strength of mind or body. Although we sometimes wander solitary roads we are never truly alone."
This game is in Early Access and accessibility features such as changing text and UI size appear as "not yet available" in the options menu. As they are right now, the text and icons are incredibly small and can be very difficult to read and distinguish. There are no alternate controls or controller support currently available.
There are tutorial popups for how to do specific actions but you are not given an overall quest or objective when you begin. You are left to explore and discover the world, there does not seem to be a journal or quest tracking system to guide you, keep notes of where you've been and the people you've encountered, or track your progress, which can all make it hard to pick up and remember where you left off.
