March 20

Update released (v4.4.8)!!


Black Giant Spider


Hi all!

Several weekend fixes:

  • new: replaced our own Steam API native libraries with steamworks4j - they provide more functionality (e.g. Steam Workshop items!)
  • new: units with potions will have potion marker
  • update: option to disable permanent death (however, Death Seeker will always have permanent death enabled)
  • update: confirmation dialog when using potion (to avoid accidental usage), can be switched off in Misc options
  • update: warning message when game is started by double-click on jar file (we need to load bunch of libraries from bat file)
  • balance: Time Shift subtracts already used actions, therefore unit will act only three times total
  • balance: Greenskins campaign added Black Orcs
  • bugfix: intro conversation played before hint
  • bugfix: consistent new/edit/remove team buttons behaviour in custom battle dialog
  • bugfix: melee-close ranged attacks on static objects will be considered melee attack. It's a very rare scenario, e.g. attacking treasure chest with capture net when standing close will do damage.
  • bugfix: ensnare won't do damage even when boosted with DoubleDamage. Attack enhancements (e.g. Fire Strike) will still apply.


AOF3 progress update: ALMOST DONE
Both campaigns were properly play-tested and balanced. Two major things to-do left:
  • forest story fixes and proofread - in progress, should be ready somewhere in April.
  • video trailer - in progress, should be ready till end of Jun.


All of best,
Les

Update released (v4.4.5)!!


Insectoid Brute

A couple of updates:

  • new: Soul Trophies - necromancer can capture special trophy from killed enemies. Soul is useable once (it disappears after battle) and gives some bonuses depending on a killed unit
  • new items: Nature Crown, Soul (trophy)
  • new: Combat Dice option in Misc (experimental)
  • new: Allies Block Move option in Misc (experimental) - allows disabling of blocking move by units from the same team
  • update: iconised tooltip descriptions of campaigns
  • update: improved factions icons
  • update: shorter spells/skills descriptions, e.g. area spell 2MP, long range -> area, 2MP, long range
  • update: more fancy names for attributes e.g. Great Fireball -> Firestorm
  • update: further optimisations for drawing battles
  • update: larger icons for units in recruitment screen
  • balance: construct’s upgrades costs gold instead of experience

We have changed how data files are loaded. We have tested it on few configurations, but please let me know asap if it causes any issues, e.g. no campaigns selectable in New Campaign screen.
(dynamic loading of data files will make possible to use Steam workshop in the future)

Have a nice day,
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.
