Bug Fix Update 0.12.935

Hello all! Last night we sneakily pushed out our latest update which is full of juicy bug fixes. We're not done with them, either, as if you'll recall from past updates we have plans to push out a series of pure bugfix updates (2, possibly 3) aimed entirely at making the game as bug free and stable as possible before moving on to the next big content update (the magic system... yayyy!)

Anyway, for more specific info on what was in this latest update, check out this link, and also be sure to watch my customary update video below! Sorry the frame-rate is terrible. I tried using YouTube's in-built recorder. Turns out it's terrible!

Hotfix Incoming!

Hi all! Sorry I've been quiet. I was hit by a MAMMOTH flu that knocked me around so much I actually went deaf for a few days! It didn't slow my productivity too much, though, as the first major bug hotfix is almost ready to ship and will be with you all before the end of the week!

The main focus of this hotfix was to get the current quests working 100%, as they had some fairly serious issues, but I'm glad to say that they're totally working now, which means the quest system is ready for me to add some new quest types in later updates.

There were also a HEAP of other bugfixes we managed to take care of, so be sure to keep an eye on the Trello to see what's coming, and I'll see you all later this week when the hotfix goes live! I'll do my customary video update explaining all the details once it's out :)

“Old school RPG with modern technology? Check. Looking for funding? Check. Is Malevolence: The Sword of Ahkranox worthy of your money? Check.”
The Indie Game Magazine

“As a huge fan of games like the Might and Magic series ... I am pretty excited for this game.”
Capsule Computers

“There’s a glowing green circle on the dungeon floor. Should I stand on it? Of course I should. Green means go. Nothing bad is ever green. So I step into the circle, and it poisons me. But look, that’s OK. Hit points are falling off me in clumps, like hair off the elderly, but over there on the wall is a font of pure, life-giving water. I race toward it and drink: it is also poisoned. Stumbling and reeling, I step back from the vile stuff onto a spike trap and die.”

Enter the world of Ahkranox - the first ever genuinely infinite first person roguelike. Become the incarnate form of a magical, sentient Sword, protecting a realm of dreams from the shadows of its own tormented soul, and stand as an eternal guardian against the infinite darkness that threatens to consume all.

In development since 2010 and meticulously inspired by the classic RPG experiences of the early 90s, this turn-based roguelike drops you into the infinite realm of Ahkranox, a dream-world in the mind of a sentient sword. The world is infinite, the loot is infinite, the quests are infinite and the possibilities are infinite. Relive the classic adventure experience of the past in this modern day salute to the pioneers of modern role playing.



Features:

  • A procedurally generated, yet permanent, world to explore.
  • All players experience their own copy of the same world. Share your finds with friends!
  • Plunder an infinite amount of procedurally generated loot.
  • Compete against your fellow adventurers to prove yourself the greatest hero to have lived.
  • Choose from a never-ending supply of quests.
  • Interact with your fellow players through rifts in time.
  • Relive the brutal difficulty and merciless game mechanics of the golden age of video gaming.
  • Claim undiscovered locations as your own for other players to stumble upon.
  • A game without an ending and with no level cap! You live to reach greater heights than your fellows, or you die gloriously!


This game is in early access. What does that mean?

While very playable, and quite feature-rich, this game is not 100% complete yet. We still have some bugs to iron out, and we still have a few features left to complete, but we're not far off! Join the action now and get access to each new feature in our regular updates! Get in early to discover places that no other player has yet found, and make a name for yourself on the leaderboard as one of the mightiest heroes that Ahkranox has yet seen.



So what else do you have planned to add to the game?

  • More dungeon types
  • More quest types
  • More dwelling types
  • Weapon and armour crafting
  • A new, totally updated magic system
  • Boss monsters
  • More global multiplayer functionality
  • More bug fixes and enhancements
  • And more!


What's Next For Ahkranox?

Malevolence was the result of a wonderfully successful Kickstarter campaign, whose stretch goals allowed us to begin early work on Malevolence's first expansion pack, which we will be diving into as soon as the base game is done. Sales from this base game will also go to furthering the development of the expansion pack!



So come on in and join the hundreds of players already enjoying the game, and while you're here, jump on our official forum to share what you find! Remember that if you can see it in your game, everyone else can, too!

I cannot begin to quantify all the reasons this game appeals to me.

That being said, here are a few things I really enjoy:

It's obvious to me that the people behind this game, have put their heart and souls into it.

It's single character (which is a huge + in my book), First-person, 3D.

The world is persistant. This means if you find a cool location, you can tell others where it is. They'll be able to find, see and experience it themselves.

It is turn-based (huge + for those like me that suffer from tendonitis (carpal tunnel syndrome)).

The world is infinite -- really! No caps on level, and no 'end of the world' to fall off of or bump into.

It has permadeath - only way I play.

Very active developer, updates are released frequently, along with new features.

There are certainly more I have not listed here.

I highly recommend giving it a try

I've been playing Malevolence since the Kickstarter release and loving every minute of
it. I'm a great fan of RPG's and roguelikes and Malevolence definately scratches both
itches. I also love when games are unpredictable and you don't know what to expect on
each playthrough.

The game is very old school with some innovative modern touches, the world all
the players play in is truly infinte with each player adventuring in the same version
of the world but discovering areas other players haven't been to yet. When players
discover new areas with online functionality it's possible to claim locations so if other players adventure to the same place it will say who claimed the location. Other online functions are planned and the game has a great community sharing gameplay experiences and finds.

All the loot, quests, dungeons and the world are procedurally generated but the dungeons and world are the same for everyone once an area as been discovered so if players find really cool/difficult dungeons they can share the coordinates and challenge others to clear the dungeon.

Travel in such a vast world is by Griffon and once players have enough gold they can leave the starting area and explore freely going to places far away that have not been discovered by anyone else.

Something else I love about the game is the emergent nature, things just seem to happen to throw spanners in the works and problem solving is often required to complete a quest or dungeon.

The best way to play is permadeath with the gamma turned to zero so the dungeons are truly very dark and torches are essential. With the lights down low exploring can be very intense and I find myself getting drawn into the game. Permadeath also means your name is entered onto the leaderboard so others can see how your adventures are going.

Finally I have to mention the dev team who are the icing on an already delicious cake, updates come frequently and the forums are a hotbed of ideas and player posted challenges which will only grow as the games audience widens. I've seen the game progress from a basic dungeon crawl to something very special indeed and if you value fantastic gameplay and love retro rpg graphics and enjoyed the golden age of RPG gaming then perhaps Malevolence is for you.

I certainly recommend it and wish it all the luck in the world as it goes live on Steam.

Walked into the Dungeon of Anhus, slaughtered some orcs and goblins, fled from a minotaur, then promptly fell into a pit trap (instant death). I love this game!

Its challenging and fun and brings back all those old-school feels. Highly recommend!

Lots of fun, I've been playing this since the Kickstarter Beta. Wicked loot, infinite exploration and enemies that can be a real challenge. It's a game full of 'just one more': I'll do just one more dungeon level, I'll just find the next town, I'll just see what's over the next hill... and 2 hours later you're still going.

This game is freakin' EPIC! I am completely hooked. It is a really awesome nod to the old school RPGs that I used to play back in the day but brought into today with a modern slant. If you are looking for a game to lose several hours of your life without realising it, then grab this game.

Also? As a side note, there is something about it that really tickles my OCD. Anyone else find that?

Ok, not gonna hide the fact that im IN the game(which i paid for on kickstarter), nor will i hide that i was made a tester.

I am NOT a roguelike fan at all. In fact, i hate permadeath.

I play this game on high resolution, and gamma high to see whats coming at me.

ive ragequit this game numerous times........that means A ♥♥♥♥ING LOT.

It can be hard, it can be easy. BUT, its ALWAYS addicting.

even as a tester. I find myself playing the new tomb raider, borderlands, far cry 39(GOD LOVE THAT GAME)

but i always come back to malevolence in my spare time. *(and i pay for and love ESO but still play this more)

why you ask? risk and reward, plus sometimes i just tire of rt games.

and yes, the world is infinite, FOR REAL. how you ask? ♥♥♥♥ if i know, im not a programmer. I do know however, that over the almost 2 years that ive backed this game, ive seen it evolve and loved coming back to it.

Pretty much the only game ive been a part of and keep playing. (btw i also reviewed rift for a professional game site and was involved in alpha of bioware the old republic, not to be a name dropper lol) cant say that for other ones. (looking at you SoTA_)

So overall, i love this game. Turn based games with this much heart and effort are impossible to come by.

TAKE MY MONEY.

Having been a long-time follower of Malevolence and one of the first backers on Kickstarter, I am very excited to finally see this game take it's place on Steam.

Malevolence is a blend of old-school RPG-style difficulty blended with modern systems; for example the various online elements. While you will never see another person in the game with you, if you are online while playing the game you will be able to interact with other players in a number of ways, for example the permadeath ladder where you can compete against other permadeath players, the claiming system where each major part of the world (Such as cities, dungeons and so on) can be claimed, and upon other players visiting that spot, they will see that you were there first.
Some online functionality is even a bit more secretive and should be discovered in-game.

The combat is turn based and gives the player the option of using melee, bows or spells, or mixing them to make a more balanced character.
The equipment is procedurally generated, not just the looks of weapons but also effects and values of armor, weapons and spells.

Aside from that there is an array of quest types (The quest system is still being expanded upon), special epic loot for those that brave the deepest of dungeons and take on the dungeon boss, various guilds to join and much else.

I died, it was fun.

I tried again, I died again, it was even more fun.

Sometimes I think Alex (the Dev) is punishing me, other times I know it!

The game is a work in progress, but even in its 'Beta' state at the moment it is far more enjoyable then pretty much any game I have played for a very long time. Don't be fooled by the 'early access' the game is a complete product, The main things to come or only bonus extras (more tilesets/monsters/spells etc.) and tidying up what is already there. If you want an old time, retro experience then this is the game for you. Be warned, if you have no experience of the RPG's of the mid to late 90's you may find this a bit of a shock, there are no holds barred, the game wants you dead, at it will get its wish in the end.

I've revised my review. For a Beta game there is a lot of content here. I think this game has alot of potential. I didn't realize that you would start at pretty much ground zero in each new dungeon you go into. I like to grind it's a way to veg out, You can constantly improve your character, but it seems like as soon as you finish one dungeon and are slaughtering everything the next one kills you with ease. I like to progress my character in game I want a powerful character not one constantly getting beat up by goblins. I'll recommend it just for the time I've played it.

This game scratches that itch. I grew up playing the old ones- I think the first might have been Wizardry 1 on my Apple IIc iirc. Malevolence has the feel of those games but it really isn't one of those games. Ultimately, for me at least, the core being of Malevolence is that it is infinite and has an infinite number of ways to kill you. In almost all cases I abhor scaling in RPG's but it works for Malevolence- in fact there is really no other way it could work that I can think of.

I heartily recommend this game for anyone who relishes a challenge that could potentially never end. I really, really like this game despite some of the bugs that exist now (none of them show stopping for me). Alex has done a tremendous job and continues to develop and support a labor of love.

This is not a 'AAA' title and that is for the best. So if you are looking for infinite Oblivion/Skyrim this is not it. Malevolence is it's own beast and doesn't make any allusions to being something it is not.

Prost!

At first I didn't like this game. That was until I found out I was playing it all wrong! It is not a dungeon crawler but instead it is a game where you really have to pick your battles (wisely at that). I suggest this game to anyone who has the patience to think about their actions ahead of time. As a side note keep an eye on the jewels on the bottom they are very important which I had not know until I watched a video for beginners. Very fun game!

Wow! Just wow. What an amazing turn based first person rpg. I havent played them in a long time. What got me wanting to play this was the procedural generation. A differant game every time just teases the nerd in me. I've only played a few hours at the time of this review but do yourself a favor and pick this up.

Warning though....the graphics are terrible. Do NOT buy this if you think graphics make a game because the textures look like a PC game from early 2000's. Other than that, its standard RPG fare. Grind off mobs in the dungeon and do yourself another favor and put it on permadeath because there's no point in knowing you'll eventually win...you want that fear of dying. And you will die ALOT.

This game is incredible plain and simple. Read forth and i shall explain in bullet point form....

* If you like huge worlds to explore then how does INFINITE sound?
* Tons of loot to collect!
* Incredibly tense dungeon raiding
* Great music
* Difficult as hell!
* Amazingly rewarding
* All consuming, This game will consume as many hours as you can throw at it!
* Amazing "Old School" rpg style and graphics!

Couple this with the very promising looking/sounding updates heading our way and this really is a gem of a game, I can see this game easily becoming a classic! it really is that good.

I recomend that anyone who likes RPG's or consideres themselves good at Dungeon Crawlers buy this game and see if you have minerals!

Awesome, amazing and ultimatly a pleasure to play. BUY IT NOW!

I just bought this game. Whilst the graphics aren't great; the gameplay is fun and brings back the feel of the old rpgs of the past... the good ones like Eye of the Beholder, Dungeon Master, Wizardry and Might and Magic.

This game is hard. I played for maybe 5 mins. Found a dungeon. Went in and within 3 mins had fallen in a pit trap cause I wasn't paying attention to the gems at the bottom. Does that turn me off to the game? Heck no! I love it and will be playing it for some time in the future.

Purchase this if you want to re-live the RPGs of yesteryear including graphics and difficulty. I personally love it!

I heard about this game on a forum regarding rogue-like games, it said that this game was infinite so I looked it up and bought it. That was around 2 years ago and I gotta say that this game has made incredible progress in that time. The game is in a finished beta state, fully playable and totally infinitely huge, actually beyond huge, there is no limit. There are unlimited locations to explore, no level cap, I cannot express how much I really enjoy this game. And to think it was thought up and created by one man, with help from a select bunch of testers. The game is amazing and definately worth the money, if in doubt try the demo first. Now this isnt graphically superior, or story rich, but it is definately engaging and will keep one playing a lifetime if they wish. Currently I just bought the Steam version of the game and it displays something like 12 hours played, but that is in 2 days. I have easilly spent 200+ hours since my initial purchace and I am not ever bored, level up, re-gear, go fight more mobs. There is a difficulty scaling and certain dungeons are just more difficult than others, too tough? Go fight a different place. There is no lack of dungeons. My grade for this game is 95% which is very excellent. Try it today!

Note that I am not here reviewing a completed game, but the early-access version. Keep that in mind. Even at this early stage, the game is incredibly fun. It's a first-person roguelike set in an effectively infinite procedurally generated world. Although the world is not regenerated every time you play, the fact is that the size of the world means that you'll never run out of unique lands and dugneons to explore. Gameplay is actually relatively simple. But because there's no tutorial, and a lot is left to the player to figure out for himself, it can be frustrating until some things 'click'.

The game doesn't have any true classes, but you'll differentiate yourself based on how you kill monsters, and the spells that you cast, the traps that you disarm, as well as, by your gear.

At this stage, the game only has a few different kinds of monsters, a few different kinds of quests, 2 kinds of dungeon themes a couple of minigames (one for removing traps, another for gambling at the tavern) and a number of different facilities in towns you'll visit (including shops, temples, a fighters guild, mages guild and Thieve's guild and two different kinds of fast transports.

In spite of the incomplete nature of the game, and a few bugs (including some stability issues), the game is very fun to play. I find myself wanting to just see if I can get to the next level, clear out al of the monsters on my current dungeon floor, or kill just one more goblin or imp in order to complete a quest. So I do recommend it. But keep in mind (as I said) there are issues.

Hardcore and Oldschool.
Turn based RPG, be warned there is NO hand holding! You will die, so save often! The game is infinite and procedurally generated, so you know that each encounter is random (within a set of rules of course). If you want a lovingly hand crafted experience designed to make you feel like a special unique snowflake, look elsewhere!
This game is a masterpiece and an homage to RPGs' origins. The best part is it was concieved and created by a fellow gamer and a fan of good games, not a AAA publisher looking to cash in on the indie scene!
