Default Dungeons Of Aledorn - Q1 Development Update

March 29th, 2019, 13:10
There is a new update for Dungeons of Aledorn, the game that is labeled as a hardcore old-school RPG.

Hello friends, backers and all fans of Dungeons of Aledorn. After long delay, we have some news from development. As usual, there are multiple topics we will cover so get into it.

While playing, you will have to visit number of interiors. You will enter taverns, shops or houses of different NPCs. As we wrote in previous blog posts, interiors will be presented as 3D environments where you will not be able to move freely, but there will be interactive objects. You can click on innkeeper to start a conversation or sit down to a table with local gamblers. And (of course) you cut hole in pockets of incautious citizens. In this update we are bringing couple of screenshots of library, which you will visit during your play.

More screens at the link, where also nimated gifs can be found on hexes and animation.



More information.

Combining a turn-based combat system, first person exploration and hardcore stat and skill balancing.

They aren't exactly prolific with the updates for this project, but when it does launch I'm hopeful that we'll have a fine game on our hands to enjoy!

I forgot I donated to this game. The delivery date was Feb. 2017 and they don't have it in alpha yet. Well it still looks pretty good if they can ever finish it.

Well it looks like they released an Alpha version in 2016 but they are not close to a Beta version yet.

I thought this one was dead in the water. The sparse updates over years smack of amateur hour, to me.

At least they are trying to keep their word to us as backers and development is progressing.

This game and So Generic are the two biggest failures of my kickstarter backings. I no longer back kickstarter projects and you can thank these guys.

Yeah, the backer beta for Black Geezer is also due any day now. Should be good, given that it's on the scale of PoE, and the game was "almost complete" a year ago.

If I see a game in four more years I will be surprised. I'm adding this to the pile of failed kickstarters like many other games most notably Sui Generis. That's all I have to say.

Yes, I backed that also, been a bit quiet of late?

Yeah, I was a bit skeptical at the time, when they claimed it was around 80 hours of content, and only in need of a KS for final polish. They've only ever shown a couple of small areas, and the couple of updates have been mostly waffle. I don't think they were entirely honest. But I shouldn't drag this thread off topic - just came to mind when 'Nut was talking failed Kickstarters.

I remember reading the pitch for Black Geezer, and finally deciding not to contribute. One of the few I avoided!

If we don't get a game I won't back another game either but it would be a 1st aside from the Grimoire Indiegogo fiasco - it was not long ago we finally got a manual and eventually at least I got what was promised in the campaign (I did not back physical goods).

I think it was about a year ago this crew put out an update that looked exactly like this one, rooms with candles. It looks like nothing has happened at all, judgjling by screenshots, and I put zero stock in anything they have to write. This one does indeed appear dead in the water.

I'm a lot pickier about Kickstarters than I used to be…

Indeed. I don't just jump straight into kick starter campaigns like I used to, now I read up on them and watch the progression of the pitch for a few days/weeks before I make my decision.
