UPDATE RELEASED (v4.9.6)!!

Hi all,

Just short summary of all patches released over the last few weeks:
  • new: skull catapult added to undead campaign

  • update: fine tuning of geometry, units should be able to fit better in close quarters and go around corners

  • update: empty, water and grain barrels got their unique portraits

  • update: control undead, control plant and control elemental changed into move-and-action spells - they should be easier to use, but expose mage

  • balance: Heroes get +1 HP to make Nairi stronger

  • new: Beast attribute - it will be used to group morale bonuses later

  • bugfix: captured swamp willow won’t be carried to next battle

  • bugfix: buttons/icons weren’t registering clicks

  • bugfix: Noble Clothes could not be equipped by Necromancer

Take care,
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

“(...) 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 (...)”

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

FEATURE LIST

  • Two long scenarios - play as an evil necromancer or a noble knight in fully voiced story driven campaigns!
  • Hex-free battle system - units are no longer constrained to artificial grids. Unit's size matters too.
  • Steam Workshop integration - create your own world and share with the community!
  • 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.
