Sho Talks New Magic

So a couple of my lovely test team have been working on videos showing off features of the new update to give you guys and gals a sneak peek of what's coming. The first of these is ShoHashi giving you a "magic system 101" breakdown of the basics of how it works! He also gives you a small taste of what the new Boss Monsters are like. More videos like this to come as work on the update finally starts wrapping up!

I think the main thing to take away from this is to imagine how many possibilities and combinations of effects there can potentially be! It's the main reason why it's been so complicated to create in the first place haha

“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!

Recensione della versione ad accesso anticipato
I waited a long time to purchase this game, and finally bought it when I saw the magic and boss systems announced as coming soon. I want to make it very clear I have played only enough to make sure that it worked on my old computer. That was in the first half of last year.

I waited to start a playthrough of the game until the update adding those major systems was released, as in my estimation the procedural bosses and magic system were a huge part of this procedural game. I have not started a playthrough yet, as these features have not been released to Steam's early access players yet and are only available to certain community individuals. (I am unclear as to which individuals were granted access; it is my understanding that there is a separate community elsewhere, started earlier, that has some sort of EARLY early access).

Communication with the Steam community is filtered through a small group of elite testers / community members that are also the only ones with access to the current beta. I purchased the game with the understanding that I'd have early access to the content that is published as being worked on, but instead it is only available for private testing. Please do not mistake the large number of news posts listed as being updates that have been made to the version on Steam.

According to the folks that are in communication with the developer, as soon as those with access to the beta have finished testing it, we'll have access to the stuff they've already tested. I have no reason to doubt this.

I can not recommend this game as an early access purchase because it is not clear to purchasers that content added to the beta will not be made available to all early access purchasers. Based on Steam's "Yes / No" recommendation system, I must mark it as a "No." I firmly believe this game will be worth purchasing in its final version, but I do not recommend purchasing this as an early access title, due to the limited beta access given with purchase.

Wait until release. This game updates a couple times a year at most. While playable, certainly not worth the asking price.

It's great to see an old-school RPG that is actually "old-school" and not "retro". The feeling, atmosphere and layout feel like a trip back to the RPGs of old without the hassling UI or unintentional confusion that comes with playing my old favourites in a modern setting.

The fact that the entire game is procedurally generated is just icing on the cake! The game just seems so expansive with this procedural system and the developer is bringing more and more to the table with each update.

Definitely a must have for the explorer type players and a pleasant nightmare for completionists.

If you love the classic dungeon crawlers (which I do) then you'll love this. If you love rogue-like game that are very hard (which I do) then you'll most likely love this game. This game is a blast - it is vast (infinite in fact) and very hard.

Alex, the developer has been working on improving it for a couple years and it is always a treat when he releases a new version. For him, this is a labor of love and you can tell it in the quality of the game. He is also one of the friendliest and most awesome developers for any game I've seen (which reminds me, I need to get active on the forums again.)

I owned this game before it was put on steam and I put quite a bit of hours into it then. Unfortunately, I have been tied up with work and some side projects and consequently I haven't spent much time playing games. However, this is one of my all time favorite games. I am looking forward to going back to it and will be playing it off and on for the rest of my life. It is that cool.

Very immersive fun terrifying first person rpg capturing perfectly the early retro days of 1990s dungeon looting in a huge open procedurally generated sandbox world. If you loved rpgs like ARENA, DAGGERFALL and STONE KEEP you will be right at home with MALEVOLENCE: THE SWORD OF AHKRANOX. The gameplay mechanics including optional permadeath with a cool death screen where you can write your own epitaph, the harsh brutal combat, the retro visuals, the stunning voice acting with a 1970s fantasy b-movie flair, ingame story screen art capturing a Frank Frazetta painting ambience with a very mystical story along with ingame books to read all come together like the ultimate tribute to a golden age of roleplay gaming that still shines brightly decades later.

MALEVOLENCE: THE SWORD OF AHKRANOX it calls for your one time coin to enter worlds of endless and unbridled gaming passion!
