Update released (v4.0.2)!

Hi all,


Based on recent feedback, there are few updates:

- update: separate executables for 32- and 64-bit systems. That should allow us to use more memory (up to 2GB) on 64-bit (85% of users), while still making game playable on 32-bit (up to 1GB) systems.
- update: full screen is on by default
- update: better selection of available display mode
- update: 17-pages battle tutorial not displayed automatically (it's still available from Help menu)
- update: 3-pages shop tutorial not displayed automatically (it's still available from Help menu)
- balance: chain spells can hit up to 5 enemies
- bugfix: hypnotised units were not carried over
- bugfix: some attributes were not expired correctly after won battle
- bugfix: duplicated display modes on selection dialog


You might have noticed our Steam page changed a bit - there is a new Feature List section and we added some new graphics. Do you think we shall add anything more on Steam page?

Also, we have received feedback that game is felling 'clunky' and 'slow' on some machines. It could be some side effect of the last patches, but we could not recreate issue.
Does anyone experience unresponsive GUI after recent updates?


Best of all,
Les

Reviews

“Age of Fear succeeds because of its combat: using units to protect fragile allies, incorporating hex-based mechanics without the geometric restriction. The result is some satisfying strategy (...)”
6/8 – Out of Eight

“Age of Fear 2: The Chaos invokes the spirit of early 90s strategy games, before real-time strategy became the fashion and reflexes became more important than tactics. (...) it's not perfect, but it is fun, playable, and challenging, and it shows every sign of rapidly improving itself!”
4/5 – PCWorld

Feature List

  • Two long scenarios - play as a manipulative succubuss or a brutal orc warchief in story driven campaigns!
  • Hex-free battle system - units are no longer constrained to artificial grids. Unit's size matters too.
  • Easy to Play but Hard to Master - Age of Fear is very easy to pick up but with deep and emergent strategy.
  • Low hardware requirements - the game will even work on that old laptop of yours.
  • Permanent death - all characters that fall in a battle will stay dead - unless an evil Necromancer raises them as Zombies!
  • Diverse enemy roster - game features 160+ unique units with over 250 different spells and skills.
  • AI behaviour is modelled on a neural network system and influence maps. Age of Fear has probably one of the most advanced strategic AI's ever created!
  • Items and artifacts - there are over 100 unique items in Age of Fear, which are randomly distributed. Items not only give bonuses, but also unlock powerful skills and spells.
