SUMMER SALE!!



Welcome to Summer Sale!!!

It was a good year for us - we have introduced many interesting features, such as morale, potions, voiceovers, conversions, etc. and promoted AOF2 to Gold. It’s clearly visible in reviews, currently at 90+% positive!

We are very glad you enjoy our games and we soon will be releasing Age of Fear 3: The Legend!

What’s next?

  • we working on video trailer for Age of Fear 3: The Legend. It’s about half done 75% done. Citing our producer: your socks will go off!
  • story illustrations are being re-drawn for Age of Fear: The Undead King as well. It will take 9-12 months and then we promote it to Gold as well.
  • rendering engine and UI will be re-coded, I am going to start it just after AOF3 release. Hopefully, we will get UI better this time.
  • the next patch will include an option to rename your units - it's a bit of a hack and we are taking our time testing it. Generally, we want to increase customisation options beyond stats and skills.
  • we have already started working on AOF4. Yes, there will be succubus :-)

Meanwhile, we have also added a new achievement for everyone who plays game during Summer Sale!


Have a nice day and enjoy Summer Sale,
Les

Update released (v4.8.1)!!


Magic Crystal


This patch is quite interesting - we have finally introduced all level-specific conditions to battles, e.g. Darkness that will lower ranged attacks, Cold impacting effectiveness of fire-based attacks, Swamp slowing down units, etc. They should hopefully give more twists to battles.

Updates:

  • new: battle board conditions - some levels will got permanent conditions such as Darkness, Cold or Blood Moon (combat bonuses for Undead and Demons). That should add to variety and we will be adding other conditions too.
  • new: Combat Shield Proficiency - gives +1 Attack/Defence when hero is using shield and weapon
  • new: Invulnerability Armor spell for succubus - unit can be damaged only by critical hits, but it loses -1 HP per turn.
  • new: Summon Elemental - summons few elementals (type is based on a level type)
  • new: a few new hints - experimental options, battle conditions, workshop manager, over-limit unit, etc.
  • new items: Inferno Staff, Study Book, Staff of Striking
  • update: succubus voice changed to previous sexy voice
  • update: few new icons: improved life potion, exit, etc.
  • bugfix: AI was not using Mass Stoneskin
  • bugfix: AI was overprotective for its artillery units

We are still testing battle conditions, please give a shout when you encounter any bugs.

Meanwhile, please enjoy AOF2 sale!

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

“(...) it offers some stunning AI. Not once when I was playing this game did I feel like the computer behaved in a strange or unintelligent fashion (...)”

About This Game


Age of Fear: The Undead King is a refreshingly fun strategy title that marries a tabletop wargame with elements of RPG. The game features a huge variety of units, a novel hex-free battle system, morale, and flexible multiplayer.

Play as an evil necromancer or a noble knight in two story driven campaigns!

FEATURE LIST

  • Two long scenarios - play as an evil necromancer or a noble knight 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.
