1.0.7 Hotfix Update

Firstly an absolutely HUGE thank you to everyone that purchased the game yesterday! I really appreciate you getting involved with the game and hope that you're enjoying it so far.

I've been active in the forums since release and trying to help anyone that might have been experiencing issues.

I've pushed a hotfix to RPG Tycoon this morning to take care of some of the major ones.

1.0.7 Patch Notes - Fixes major loading issue when attempting to load a game after firing a hero that was equipped.

1.0.6 Patch Notes

  • Fixed bug causing timer to play if paused and kingdom name renamed.
  • Fixed range error with quest combo history button when selecting supplies
  • Fixed null pointer error on AI Buildings when saving/autosaving each month causing loss of progression.
  • Fixed bug allowing you to send two heroes to train in a building at once
  • Fixed bug allowing you to send two heroes to a settlement at once
  • Reduced terrain items spawned in starting area on new game
  • Nerfed boost gained from completing hero training research

This shouldn't stop you from reloading a save from a previous build but it's always recommended to start a new game upon updating.

If your game isn't updating to 1.0.6. You can force the update by right clicking RPG Tycoon in your library, selecting properties and choosing Verify Integrity of Game Cache.

Hopefully this is a step in the right direction to improving your experience, if there's any issues, please don't hesitate to report them in the forums and I can do my best to issue a fix! (If I don't know about it, I can't help you!)

You can always tweet me @skatanicstudios or email support(at)skatanicstudios(dot)co(dot)uk if you need any further help.

All the best,

RPG Tycoon V1.0 Released!

I'm incredibly happy to say that RPG Tycoon has officially launched out of Early Access after almost two years! You can buy the game now on Steam for PC & Mac.

You can buy the game now! The demo has also been updated to V1 too, if you want to try it out first.

Here's a shiny new launch trailer for you too.


The launch build of the game brings a huge number of changes including a smarter kingdom generation algorithm that groups terrain decorations together, loads of new decorations and buildings to choose from, new quests, supplies and a contextual tip system that should help new players understand the systems a bit better (these can be disabled in options) as well as a view distance option that controls how much of the game-map you're limited to in order help improve performance or give you more freedom if that's not a concern.

There's also an awesome new in-game quest editor that allows you to write and control new Epic Quest events, create icons and then share them as mods on the steam workshop without ever leaving the game! Also, all of the in-game text is now in a file in data/strings.xml so anyone looking to translate the game, should be able to do so by simply editing the text in the data folder.

If you want to learn more about modding the game (it's super easy) and there's documentation here.

Due to post limits, there's a full list of patch notes available on the blog.

What's next?
I'm going to take a little bit of time off over March as GDC is approaching and I have some family functions to attend, however I'll continue working on any bugs or fixes that need doing if anything arises and update as/when I can. I'm also planning on continuing support for the game for a little while longer after launch with additional free content, but further patches probably won't be as frequent from here out.

So if you’re interested in extra content, patches or want to hear about projects that may crop up in the future you can also sign up to the mailing list over on the blog to be notified of anything new if/when it happens. Also, if you're social media savvy be sure to follow SkatanicStudios on Twitter to stay informed of any news!

It's been an incredible experience making this game and I'm so proud of how far it's come since initial release in early access. It's thanks to many of you and your feedback that I've been able to get the game to this point and I've hugely valued the support from all of you over the past two years. I really, really could not of done this without you all supporting me throughout Early Access and I really hope you're pleased with the final result of this process as much as I certainly am. The game is lightyears ahead of what I could have imagined achieving when I first began.

Thank you.

I bought this game 2 years ago when it was released in early access and really enjoyed it. The problem is this is just another early access game that was rushed into full release too early. There are just too many bugs in the game right now to recommend this game as is.

I will change my recommendation it a yes if the bugs get fixed.

The game is alright, but I would just save the money and get something else. It costs a good amount of gold to build and expand and it is a very small area they give you, building can be next to impossible if you need to remove something and there is a huge building in front of it, and the appeal of your town goes down too quickly so you are left to endlessly build decorations or else your town will get a bad rep and no visitors will come. For example, I tried removing my dirt roads to replace them with stone roads and ended up deleting a flagpole, bounty board, and statue by accident because the action highlighted was "delete road" but it deleted those instead wasting a lot of money. Also when you want to pause the game to manage a store or something else it puts a red tint across the entire screen that is just annoying.

In short, there are many problems with this game that just make it annoying. Save the money.

Started out alright started to get the hang of it (Meaning I realized you get points for making money so ♥♥♥♥ everything else and focus on income) and then it crashed. Luckily the game saves constantly so I got back right where I left off.

Unfortunately everything was pretty much bugged.

-3 buildings were solid the rest were opaque. Toggling that option just switched the 3 solid back and forth.
-Score was reset entirely for every kingdom.
-All quick quests were locked agian except for 4 random ones.
-Same with supplies for quick quests.
-All progress on epic quest unlocks was reset.
-Basically everything was completely ♥♥♥♥ed.

Also if you do play make sure you wait for a hero to actually start doing what you set them to do. Some things will allow you to set multiple heroes to one building (Such as training strength). If you do this any hero who arrives after the first will be stuck doing that thing forever and you have to fire them and start over with a fresh hero.

TL;DR Starts confusing, gets stupidly easy once you realize you can win the game by spamming shops everywhere, glitches out and you lose all progress.

Still seems to be full of bugs and unclear documentation. Some of the buttons don't work, when you train your heros it tells you they have increased in the stat you trained in but doesn't alway increase the stat and after a couple of training sessions it seem to give you like 500% of your current stat so 100 strength becomes 500 strength in 1 go. Needs more work feels half built.

Its not bad for less than £7 but its not actually finished really. The delete tool is impossible to use without losing everything and you can't save and load in between changes without using another "slot".
