Tower of Time - Early Access Version launched

by Hiddenx, 19:11

The Early Access version of the real time strategy RPG Tower of Time has been released:

Tower of Time had arrived !

We have launched on time and so far so good. No critical bugs reported. (we will release a patch shortly with few minor ones)

Thanks to everyone who decided to give a chance to an early access title. !

Please use REPORT ISSUE tool, available via SETTINGS - for an easy report in-game, whether you have encountered a bug or have a suggestion or comment. Whatever you report, we see it instantly in our system.

 



For long ages past, Artara was a place of great peace and beauty. Then, a mysterious event took place. Within a few generations, the land was broken and the skies darkened. More than a thousand years of decline has passed since then.

As a young boy, you came upon the base of an immense Tower, uncovered by yet another violent earthquake. Deep below sleeps an ancient power. Since that day, you have been drawn inexorably to this place. Your task is to lead a group of champions and reach whatever resides in the depths of the Tower. There you will face the ultimate choice…

Tower of Time is a classic RPG with a few added novelties. It has hand-crafted levels filled with various enemies, challenging puzzles, and engaging story-lines. Its dynamic real-time combat with slow mode requires tactical awareness and careful preparation of the party.

Features:
  • Engaging story, set in a world where technology met magic with devastating consequences. Hundreds of lore books and scattered pieces of information slowly reveal the history of Artara as the protagonist approaches his fate.
  • You must explore the Tower, buried underground for millennia. Find secret locations, cleverly hidden in the environment. Travel through hand-crafted levels where every single place is carefully designed. Discover forgotten scrolls and guess their powers based on the cryptic description. Meet various NPCs, some native to the world and some coming from… strange places.
  • Advanced combat system – unique real-time action with a slow-time feature, where each match is played on one of many separate tactical maps and where even most powerful champions can fail without refined tactics. Plan ahead and position your party accordingly. Use slow-time to react to new threats or negate enemy skills. Converse your magic energy and survive all enemy waves. No two encounters are ever the same.
  • There are seven classes to choose from, and your party can be adjusted at will and anytime, depending on the challenges you face. Each champion has unique skills that can be upgraded and re-trained at will. Those upgrades often change the nature of the skills. For example, your Summon Elemental skill can either be a durable melee Ent with high health and armor or fragile Water Elemental with devastating range attack.
  • New character progression system: there is no experience to gain. Instead, discover ancient knowledge to unlock new skills and carefully design your characters. Each character could be turned into a powerful and durable attacker or skill-based champion.
  • Defeat powerful elite enemies wielding diverse skills and spells. Assess their strengths and weakness carefully to succeed. Complete combat challenges for item rewards and unique enchanting recipes, or just to test your new party setup.
  • Gather crafting crystals of various types to create items of different power. Discover ancient enchanting recipes that, while very expensive, can change the nature of the combat, granting regeneration aura or immunity to special effects.
  • Upgrade your city as the main training/equipment hub and repository of all the lore you find.

XCOM 2 - 12 new Features in War of the Chosen

by Hiddenx, 19:00

PC Gamer reports that the XCOM 2 expansion War of the Chosen comes with 12 new features:

12 new features in XCOM 2 expansion War of the Chosen

Hero characters, new enemies, personality traits, and more.

I recently sat down with XCOM boss Jake Solomon and played through a mission from War of the Chosen. This expansion adds an enormous amount of new stuff—both frivolous and game-changing—to Firaxis’ brilliant sci-fi strategy game, to the point where it almost feels like a sequel.

And while I was taking notes on my laptop as Solomon explained the expansion’s new features, I noticed he seemed to be remembering something new every few minutes. So here are as many things as I managed to scribble down during my demo, between actually trying to play the thing.

If you want to read a thorough rundown of everything I got up to in my playthrough, diving deep into the new enemies and altered campaign structure, you can read all about it in the next issue of PC Gamer.

  1. The Chosen are crazy powerful
  2. Assassins can kidnap your soldiers
  3. The Chosen have traits
  4. There are friendly heroes too
  5. Heroes have their own upgrade tree
  6. Your soldiers will have more personality
  7. Soldiers can form bonds
  8. Sitreps make things more interesting
  9. There’s a new enemy type called The Lost
  10. There are three kinds of Lost
  11. The Lost are neutral
  12. You can create your own propaganda

Underrail - Expedition Gameplay

by Silver, 09:30

The latest development update for Underrail: Expedition shows off some gameplay. Spoiler Warning.

Hi guys.

Just wanted to let you all know that, even though we've been quiet, we're working hard on getting all the content for the expansion done, now that all the new mechanics have been implemented. The good news is that the the bulk of the main quest, including all the heavy scripting, c&c, etc, is complete and functioning (for the most part, it needs further testing, of course).

For those who just can't wait to get to explore the Black Sea themselves, here's a short video from the recent internal testing that we've done (this is NOT a trailer). It does contain some spoilers, though we tried to censor the important stuff, so be warned.

Kenshi - Early Access Review

by Hiddenx, 18:59

Selectbutton has reviewed the Early Access RPG Kenshi, which is in development for several years now:

Kenshi Early Access Review

Kenshi is a game. That I'm sure about. Kenshi is a lot of things within a game. This is something else I'm sure about.

Kenshi feels like the amalgamated material of Mount & Blade, The Elder Scrolls, and several survival games all thrown in for good measure. This brutal game is a challenge from the start, either from possible starvation, bandit attacks, or sheer bad luck. While there are tooltips and some helpful guides along the way (it's always worth asking around), the game drops you in and sets you loose without much else.

Before being dropped into the world though, there are things to attend to. These include what kind of scenario you're playing, character customization, and advanced option tweaking (highly recommended) that can give you a slight edge in your early games. The scenarios change the overall framework of the game, subtly influencing your gameplay to be more RPG-like or more crafting/trading oriented. One even puts an interesting spin on a more RTS-like experience within the confines of this game. The customization is also a nice treat as it offers a large variety of options such as everything from character race to individual traits. On your group experiences, you're able to fully customize every member of your group. They still come out looking like poor and haggard bums when you first hit the dusty world, but the sheer variety is impressive.

[...]

Simply Put

Kenshi is a lot of ideas thrown together. A lot. I'm interested to see what a final version might look like. While Chris Hunt, founder of Lo-Fi Games developed the game himself over the course of six years, the team grew upon the game's success on Steam Greenlight. With that said, even I found there may just be too much going on at once. Kenshi has quite a steep learning curve, but I know there are many willing to enjoy the kind of freedom featured in the game.

I'm still finding out new things here and there as I play and considering the large size of the map, I'm positive I'll continue to do so. My only concern is the noted steep learning curve: it was a bit of a turn off when I initially started the game. I was appreciative of the tool tips and small guidance points the game provided, but there's so much out there even then. Some will also find this to be an issue when starting the game up, but for those looking to play something a little like Mount & Blade set in a fantasy type world with an incredible challenge, Kenshi might be a great fit.

Expeditions: Viking - Review @ PC PowerPlay

by Hiddenx, 18:54

PC PowerPlay has reviewed Expeditions: Viking:

Review: Expeditions: Viking

Nordic by nature.

The clue’s in the name. No, not the Viking bit. Though it does accurately describe the amount of beards and longships awaiting you. It’s the other bit, the bit before the colon.
Expeditions is the name of the series which began a few years back with Expeditions: Conquistador. Both games lean heavily into ideas of travel, of trekking to new places and returning home, of time passing. This is the kind of RPG that’s less about quests and more about journeys.

[...]

From the outset your goal isn’t to embark on a quest to save the world; rather you must prove yourself a worthy leader, navigate political instability and earn the respect of your people. This journey takes you all over northern Europe, but you keep returning to your home. Every time you do, you chat to your family and friends and realise how far you’ve come.

Score: 8/10 - A deep tactical - and strategic - RPG.

The Surge - Getting a demo next week

by Silver, 13:13

@PCGamer The Surge will get a demo next week.

The future-apocalypse action-RPG The Surge is a flawed but interesting game: "Dark Souls in a junkyard," as we called it in our review, although lacking in some of the touches and polish that make Dark Souls stand out. A solid 60/100 review score is a tough place for a game to be, especially one that costs $50. It's too good to easily ignore, but a hard buy at the price without trying it first. So Deck13 and Focus Home Interactive have come up with a plan. A demo!

Vigilantes - Upcoming Changes

by Myrthos, 12:19

A video has been made available that shows the upcoming changes in the next version of Vigilantes, like these combat changes:

  • Less, relatively more powerful enemies in combat. Currently there can be up to 20 characters in combat. The result is long turns, with many enemies getting to act between your characters' turns.
  • Less stat points. The current system of one stat point every level was created with quickly building test characters in mind. With less enemies, the player team must be balanced in relation to the opposing force. The ability to build stat increasing facilities will recoup some of these "lost" stat points.
  • Ally skill points. You will now get some skill points to allocate for your allies, providing better control over their development.
  • Less perk points, but more powerful perks. Underpowered perks is an other issue brought up by testers. We feel less perk points which unlock more powerful perks would be beneficial.

Empyre: Lords of the Sea Gates - Announced

by Hiddenx, 20:27

The developer Coin Operated Games announced their new RPG today:

Empyre: Lords of the Sea Gates is a top-down isometric RPG that takes place in a Neo-Victorian New York circa 1911.

loading...


Featuring a top-down isometric presentation, Empyre: Lords of the Sea Gates will rekindle old-school PC RPG fans with feelings of some of the classic story driven RPGs of the 90s. While the combat should feel familiar to veteran players, there’s a new twist in that the game uses a hybrid Real Time/Turn-based System. Players can enter a “Planning Mode” where they choose actions for each character in their party while combat is paused, and when entering into the “Action Mode” all characters will perform simultaneously, giving players complete control over their party while presenting a streamlined combat system that eliminates waiting for each character to act in sequence.

Empyre: Lords of the Sea Gates is the story of an alternate New York in which the entire city is flooded by rising oceans and the citizens must learn to live in a new reality where there is water everywhere, but none of it possible to drink. The player must make their way in search of a fresh water supply source, picking up companions along the journey. But the trip won’t be easy, as there are many threats both human and inhuman that players will encounter.

“One of the things we strove for when designing Empyre is authenticity during an ‘Age of Technical Wonder’ in the United States, the Gilded Age,” said John Randall, Creative Director of Empyre. “For example, the New York City we all know is the city in this game, and history buffs will recognize many iconic locations that existed in the city during the 1910s, but with a unique, waterlogged twist. People and society exist and act as they did in the early 20th Century. We feel this level of detail will give players a one-of-a-kind experience that they haven’t seen anywhere before.”

Empyre: Lords of the Sea Gates pays homage to historic accounts by adding authentic items such as patent medicines including poisons or tonics made from dangerous ingredients. Many of the games’ objectives and side quests will tie directly into the experiences that someone in the 19th century would have. The game’s authenticity reflects scenes from New York during the 1900s, while tying the storyline to current day themes such as global warming and the rising of the oceans.

Brigand: Oaxaca - Released on Steam

by Hiddenx, 19:37

The FPS/RPG hybrid Brigand: Oaxaca launched on Steam:

Boom

It is finally up. Please buy my game and help me support my many addictions.

I am planning to release an update in about 2 weeks that will include the world editor, higher resolution options, and hopefully any bug fixes that you report to me.

I'm confident that there are no bugs left in the core engine. However, there may be some mistakes remaining in the game scripts, but those are easy to fix as they are just text files -- it won't require a new compile and it won't require you to start a new game. Please don't hesitate to send me any bugs you find.



Brigand: Oaxaca is a highly difficult post-apocalyptic RPG/FPS set in Mexico. The story will take you from a banana plantation to dark toxic caverns, to the sprawling city of Pochutla, to the flooded coastline, to deadly demon-infested jungles, and more.

There are 14 unique skills to upgrade with skill points, ranging from agility to firearms, hacking, hardware, voodoo. Unlock up to 80 special abilities that allow you to do things such as throw your weapon, upgrade your guns, and control the weather.

Dangers include rival tribes fighting for fertile land, mutated ghouls that emerge from their caverns at night, vicious demons that hunger for your flesh, a flooded and irradiated coastline that eats away at civilization, disease, insanity, and hunger.

You will die often, and you will like it.


Key Features:
  • Branching story with dynamic characters, dialogue trees, and multiple endings
  • Total freedom of movement and action: jump from roof to roof, steal things, blow things up, or murder friendly characters (if that's your thing)
  • Extensive character customization with 14 skills to upgrade and over 80 abilities to unlock, ranging from firearms to crafting, hacking, and voodoo
  • Crafting system largely based on the Anarchist's Cookbook: make various grenades from empty beer cans and the proper chems, etc.
  • Explore a vast region of Oaxaca, taking you from a banana plantation, into toxic caverns, bustling cities, disease-ridden jungles, and a flooded coastline

Thanks Neon!

Kingmaker - Goblin Companion Funded

by Silver, 05:43

Pathfinder: Kingmaker managed to reach the Goblin companion stretch goal.

Goblin companion joins the party!

Posted by Oleg

OMG! It is almost unbelievable - you made it!

You helped Nok-Nok find new friends and make his first and very important step in becoming the Fifth Goblin Hero!

We are so...so...filled... with emotions that it almost impossible to express our thanks by mere words:

It will be our pleasure to work on the companion from the race that Pathfinder made so unique and so delightfully twisted. Their imagery became somewhat iconic to the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and Golarion. But there is another outstanding image, or should we say, the order in the Inner Sea that also became synonymous with the Pathfinder. Yes, we are speaking of they who are the weapons of desperate times and soldiers with the force of will to do whatever must be done. They are intimidation, relentlessness, and unwavering conviction. They are the black-gauntleted fist of absolute order. They are the Hellknights!

For far too long the Stolen Lands were the den of thieves and murderers, sanctuary for those who ran from the Law, home of the chaotic and capricious fey, the embodiment of everything Hellknights abhor. They arrive in this lawless land with the important mission, and it will be up to you to decide whether they are friend or foe. Befriend them, prove that you are worthy, that your rule is the lawful one, that your country is the beacon of stability in the region and you will be welcomed into their ranks. Help them complete their mission in the Stolen Lands, and you will be taught secrets and mysteries only a few are privileged to know. Antagonize them, and you will find them to be a powerful and extremely well-organized adversary, vanquish them to seize their relics and discover the truth behind their appearance in the Stolen Lands.

This stretch goal will provide your character with even more options to choose, with unique abilities for Hellknights and Hellknight Signifers and specific items thematic to the Hellknights, as well as new quest line dedicated to the Hellknight presence in the Stolen Lands. Face them on the field of battle or fight side-by-side, it is your choice to make.

Hellknights is our next stretch goal, they will be unlocked when funding reaches $1.1M

Hail to the Kings!!!!

Sword Legacy: Omen - Indie game with global ambitions

by Silver, 03:36

@VentureBeat Sword Legacy: Omen is a tactical turn based RPG which explores the time of King Arthur.

loading...

Building a world and IP

Sword Legacy unfolds over 11 main levels, each with mission objectives and a focus on the environment. Players can customize each of the four characters on their team, shuffling through 10 skills that you unlock for each. They can also decide who will lead the team as they explore and pick up loot, which can have an effect on battle order if they're ambushed. Some skills and characters are better suited for manipulating the environment - such as flammable barrels, which can be detonated or moved around - and the player's party can gain an advantage if it attacks from higher ground.

Scattered throughout the levels are documents that contain snippets of world lore, something that's optional for those who are interested in learning more about the "candlepunk" world. Candlepunk, Pine says, is something he discovered in his research that's akin to steampunk only set in medieval times instead of the Victorian era.

"We thought it was a good fit for our medieval world, especially the alchemical undertone we have. We have lots of potions in the game, and the potions always have side effects," said Pine. "The player can try a potion that will increase their health, but it also might reduce their attack stat, or increase defense but reduce attack, or whatever."

Sorcery is less common in Sword Legacy, where alchemy and blood magic take precedence. It abides by the grim atmosphere, where willpower is something that players can exploit for extra moves or super-powered attacks, but can also result in stress and loss of control and affects both heroes and foes alike.

Bethesda Softworks - Creation Club @ PC Gamer

by Hiddenx, 20:21

PC Gamer reports that some modders like Bethesda's new creation club:

Top Fallout 4 and Skyrim modders weigh in on Bethesda's Creation Club

How Bethesda's paid mods program differs from Steam's, and why three top modders like it.

The Creation Club was Bethesda’s most contentious E3 announcement. A follow-up to Valve’s failed paid mods program, the Creation Club will allow third-party developers, including modders, to create sanctioned add-on content for Fallout 4 and Skyrim: Special Edition. This content will be sold through in-game marketplaces for Creation Club Credits, which can be purchased via Steam.

The short version is that it’s paid mods. Bethesda insists that the Club isn’t paid mods, but it is. Crucially, it’s also a dramatically improved version of paid mods. Many questions remain unanswered, but we do know that Bethesda will screen applicants, curate Club content and optimize everything themselves to prevent conflict between mods. Club content must also be original, meaning existing mods won’t suddenly cost money. Perhaps most importantly, Bethesda says “there will still be plenty of free mods as well.”

Assuming Bethesda follows through on these rules, the Club could actually be a positive development for modding. It’s not perfect; as our own Chris Livingston wrote, Club content would be better off free, with the store itself acting as a way to promote the best mods and compensate talented modders. In any case, it is a rare opportunity for modders to profit off their passion.

Unknown Realm: The Siege Perilous - Kickstarter Update

by Hiddenx, 20:01

Some Kickstarter news for the C64-RPG Unknown Realm: The Siege Perilous:

New in-game content items on Megafounder now!

Hello backers!

Just a quick crowdfunding update... we mentioned we would be posting some new in-game add-ons for you on Megafounder before we wind down that campaign. We plan on closing down the Megafounder campaign on July 24, at which time we’ll finalize our numbers for production and manufacturing.

If you’ve been secretly wishing you pledged for a Ziplock Bag Edition or the Collector’s Edition Box instead of an all-digital tier, now is your last chance to remedy that problem. ;-) There are only 16 PC Collector's Edition boxes left and then these feelies will be gone for good.

The new in-game content add-on tiers are live on Megafounder now. These include Dungeon Master, Create a Monster, NPC Portrait, and Name a Mountain.(These add-ons are available exclusively for new and existing Ziplock Bag or Boxed Edition backers.)

Head on over to Megafounder now and get your add-ons before they are gone!

Thank you all for helping us bring back the classic 80's RPG experience! Please help us spread the word about this final opportunity for classic RPG fans to enjoy an old school, big box PC game the way it's meant to be!

-Bruce & Laura

ADOM - UI Improvements

by Silver, 15:48

Ancient Domains of Mystery (ADOM) has had a great deal of work put into UI improvements.

Another week of UI work

9 JULY - THECREATOR
Hi everyone!

After being a bit spammy last week I'm trying to keep it to weekly updates here. The past week again saw a lot of work on improving the UI and starting two days ago I'm now playing my own game mouse-only (although I love the keyboard controls) in order to learn more about what actually is missing for a great mouse-based UI.

Soon we'll also run more supervised test games with ADOM newbies to learn more about what works and what doesn't in the UI.

This blog post summarizes the latest advances: http://www.ancientdomainsofmystery.com/2017/07/a-week-of-work-on-adom-ui.html

If you have more wishes or ideas regarding improvements for the UI/UX please submit them _now_ at http://www.adom.de/bugs - it's the perfect time as we really want to improve on this for the next release.

Thanks & stay tuned for the next update!

Kingmaker - Archetypes Funded

by Silver, 14:41

Pathfinder: Kingmaker has moved past the Archetype goal and now has a new goal of a new playable race at 1 million.

Archetypes are funded! Moving on to Goblin companion!

WOW! It took just a little more than one day to fund the Archetypes! You are absolutely incredible!

Now, not only the narrative designers run around the office with ideas about the Extra chapter, but all system designers also rub their hands in anticipation - oh those mighty builds they would love to add to the game. Post your comments and let us know what would you prefer to play!

Our excitement goes through the roof - with your overwhelming support, we feel like there are no limits to the expansion of the game! And as we start our race towards the Goblin companion, it is time to reveal one more stretch goal for you. It is just one day left on Kickstarter, but let's see how far we can go!

We believe that a maximum character variety is paramount, and races are an aspect we haven't addressed yet in the stretch goals. We are happy to cover the basic set of playable races - human, dwarfs, half-elves, elves, half-orcs, gnomes, halflings - nevertheless, we would love to deepen the character customization even more.

So (drumroll!) the $1.0M stretch goal is... a New playable race!

And to make it even more fun, we have another surprise for you. It seems we can't make up our minds about which race to add; too many temptations... So let us turn to YOU for this decision! We will provide three options that match the Pathfinder: Kingmaker best, and let you select your favorite through a poll. The races to choose from are still in discussion with our partners from Paizo, but we will come up with the available options as soon as we start funding for that goal.

Let us know about your favorite races in the Comments section!

 

Hail to the Kings!
