MEGA UPDATE: Workshop and much more!

Welcome to Lords of Xulima V.2.0!

To celebrate the first anniversary of Lords of Xulima, we have released a major update with a lot of new things.

The Workshop

Finally, the Workshop is available. With the Workshop, you can create your own mods for the game in which you can change the rule set system to create a unique experience or simply to improve the original game to your taste.

We have created a specific application, the Lox Editor. With this tool, you can change the global parameters of the game, the encounters, monsters, skill, classes, treasures... in a very easy way. Then you can publish your mods so other users can try your version of LoX.


Players can easily manage the mods and activate them from inside the main game menu. First, subscribe to the ones you like in the Workshop page of LoX and then you can activate them directly from the game.

You now have three Mods available: "No Random Encounters Edition" (created by the Team), "The Deepest Dark" by the user Celerity and the "Streamlined Edition" by Valadurs Erbe. Hope you enjoy them!



Improved Game Balance

For the new version, we have tweaked a bit the difficulty levels to achieve a better overall balance. The treasures are now better and the bosses from the mid-end part of the game are now more challenging. The Normal version is a bit harder. Also, the resistances are capped at 90 as many features of the game were broken when you got immunity to certain types of damage.

New Wallpaper and Portrait for Gaulen


Our friend and great illustrator Nicole Cadet has created a new portrait for Gaulen which you can see in the game. There is also an awesome new wallpaper. The HD version is included in the Deluxe Edition. Surely the scene represented is very familiar to you ;o).

New Main Theme

Our composer Nicolas de Ferran has recorded again the main theme with the Russian violinist Maria Grigoryeva playing the Solo Violin. The main theme of LoX is now more beautiful than ever.
Listen it here

And that's all. We really hope you enjoy the Workshop. Playing the new mods can be a new original experience, providing you the perfect excuse to replay Lords of Xulima.

Although we are working on more projects, like the consoles porting of Lords of Xulima and a new very secret game, we will continue working to improve our beloved old-school RPG.

Thank you very much for your great support and see you soon!

A Tale of Gods and Humans


Discover one of the most epic stories ever written and follow it to its twisted conclusion
Legend has it that many years ago, people lived in peace on the great continent of Rodinia; a peace that would not last. Soon, the Great War broke out, dragging every kingdom and village down an endless spiral of ruin and desolation. The people prayed for salvation from the Nine Gods, whose unreachable homeland lay beyond the Great Sea, on the forbidden continent of Xulima.

Eventually, the conflict came to a point where it threatened to ruin all creation. Thus Golot, Lord of Works and Dreams, appeared to Gaulen, a seasoned Explorer who lived on a remote island off the coast of Rodinia. The Lord of Works appointed Gaulen to be his Herald on Earth and to set sail for Xulima, so that balance could be restored to the world. Thus begins the adventure of our young protagonist.

Create your group of characters


Create and customize five characters to accompany Gaulen on your journey. With 9 character classes and over 100 useful skills, the possibilities are endless. Each group will be unique. Who will you decide to take with you? Choose among familiar classes such as the Mage, Cleric, Barbarian, Soldier, Thief, Bard and Paladin or try out the Arcane Soldier and Divine Summoner. Develop your characters’ abilities to suit your play style as they gain experience and grow stronger to face the trials ahead.

Strategic, fluid, turn-based combat


Discover an addictive combat system. Over 100 unique types of enemies roam the wilds of Xulima , each capable of posing their own kinds of threats to your divine mission. There are thousands of possible strategies to lead the group to victory, including the use of scrolls and divine blessings. Will you be able to match the strength of Nilfonte, the Ocean Titan? Or survive an encounter with Xabraluz, the Demon King of Vilak?

I am mainly a strategy gamer coming from a background of playing Civ “X”, Gal Civ “X”, EUIV, M&B Warband, Matrix/AGEOD games, X-Com, etc.. I was in between games & looking for something different to play when I ran across this game in a thread about good RPG-Tactical Games. I am glad I gave Xulima a try. It has a nostalgic feel to it and that old fashioned D&D appeal (I date back to the white box/3 booklet early D&D Pen and Paper Days) that some of us old timers still remember. This feel though, is coupled with some very nice (albeit very basic) game mechanics that just simply work for the type game it was designed to be. At first glance, I thought that the combat mechanics were a little “hokey” but they work and they work elegantly. I look forward to the battles and they make you think and plan each combat turn. In addition to the combat and questing, there are some nice surprises in your exploration & adventuring. For us old schoolers that enjoy some logistics, there are some simple but elegant food & rest requirements that work without being tedious. To me, the best part of the game is the old school leveling up and making hard choices in your skill & attribute allocations as you advance. If you are a “instant gratification / pew-pew” gamer that needs high end graphics and action, stay away. But if you can use your imagination a bit and want a nicely done, old school adventure game, Xulima is your ticket. I hope they follow with a sequel…The game is quite addicting....buy the Golot Treasure DLC...its worth it....

Pros
Old School Nostalgic Feel
Nicely Done Game and Combat Mechanics
Immersion
Elegant Logistics, basic but not tedious
Nicely done advancement system
Challenging (recommend the medium or hard settings, don’t play on “normal”)
Overall game package just works – good feel, fit and finish
Hours and Hours of RPG Adventure Fun

Cons
Simple but elegant graphics – no huge explosions or 3D action here
Is grindy at times
Some might miss the “follow the green arrow” tips of other games ie., this is a thinking persons game…
Combat system may be too quirky for some (again, no “pew-pew” here)
Some may miss the “Monty Hall” feel of other titles…you work for your loot here…
Some of the game can bog down w/ tedious puzzle like problems to solve
You sometimes get stuck w/out any clear route to proceed, which can be tedious to figure out what to do next

I have played this game 3 times through. In my opinion it is more enjoyable than either Divinity Original Sin or Pillars of Eternity. I want more however and there does not appear to be any coming.

Likes – the turn based system works well. Each class has true strengths and weaknesses. A fairly good storyline. Functional graphics. Variety of terrains and monsters.

Improvement Opportunities – would of liked more sub quests with substance. Store owners rarely sell anything worthy. I would like to see decent quests for better weapons or special items. More deeper and darker dungeons and caves. Some of the electric and fireball trap/puzzles are annoying.

This is a very good oldschool RPG game. Reminds me of Might and Magic and Wizardry 7. So here is the breakdown:

The Good:

- very addictive
- character leveling, complex but not overwhelming
- challenging with difficult battles
- large world, classic fantasy, sets a great mood
- good soundtrack
- loads of items to buy/find

The Bad:

-would love more character classes (nine I think) and more races (only humans)
-some of the backgrounds in the fights look a bit too colorful.. childish.

In conclusion I can only say this is quite a gem. Very easy to overlook, but if you like RPG go for it, this game deserves some spotlight as it is a great sucessor to the old masterpieces.

I'll keep this short, and to the point.

This is a decent, if not terribly inspired group based cRPG that is mostly bug free. It allows people to play both pregenerated and individually created characters in the party. Solid game, for a fairly cheap price.

The biggest negative for me was that compared to many other games of this type, it is VERY linear. There is basically one path to advance through the story and game. This is done through content being tied very closely to party levels, and ability. Sure, there is the illusion of "sandbox" or non-linear questing, but in reality, you can go to the various places whenever you want, but the enounters there will wreck your party if they try to do things in the "wrong" order.

Pros:
- Few bugs
- Decent UI
- Reasonable graphics
- Decent if fairly generic gameplay
- Reasonable sales price

Cons:

- Very linear in playability
- Some quests not explained well or have misleading instructions
- Wide disparity in usefulness of character classes (some are very powerful, others nearly useless)


Overall it gets a positive rating, it is a good game for what it is and what it is sells for. But Pillars of Eternity it is not.

An excellent old-school style RPG. At the $15 I paid (New Zealand) it was an absolute steal. Played 114 hours and got to the final boss, but can't beat him. Don't care though, great game. Recommended.
