Despite our best efforts we couldn’t secure financing for continuing the development of Dethroned!
Because of this we’re in the process of removing the Supporter Pack DLC from the store. In addition all the payment options in the game itself will be made non-functional during the next few days.
We thank the community for the great support Dethroned! got during it’s run on Steam, especially everyone who gave to the development as customers, players and commentators.
Servers running the game will be kept up until money runs out.
Q: Will there be any more updates, like heroes, to the game?
A: No, unless we get funding for that.
Q: How long will the servers be up?
A: Unknown, several weeks is an educated guess.
Q: What happens when the servers go down?
A: Bearded server guy is working on a dedicated server software so those who want can run the server themselves. Release date for this is unknown.
Q: Will there be an option to host a game inside the Dethroned! client itself?
A: Probably no, this would be a much larger undertaking than making a dedicated server software.
Q: Will the game be open sourced if there’s no funding for it?
A: Probably not, for a variety of reasons (like the usage of third-party toolkits).
Q: Is there an upside?
A: Well, if you want to be the best ever player of Dethroned! like, forever, now is your definite chance!

Patch 1.0.10 is live! Here's what's in it:
- NEW HERO: ALCHEMIST is now available to DLC owners! The alchemist is a hero that combines three ingredients to make potions, then throws them at the ground for friends or foes to pick up. Although alchemists' base damage is low, they have a lot of room for creative play by using all the potion combinations wisely!
- Matchmaking is back to 1v1! Having team games as the default mode didn't produce desired results so we're rolling back! The matchmaker should still make better matchups than the old 1v1 matchmaking. Team games are still of course available in custom games.
- Speed potion has been significantly buffed.
- Fixed some issues with joining games that lead to game getting stuck in loading screen.
