Barony is a 3D, first-person roguelike that brings back the cryptic and intricate designs of classic roguelikes such as Nethack and melds them with RPGs like Ultima Underworld, System Shock, and Daggerfall. Challenge is the calling card of this hard-boiled dungeon-crawler.

Announcement: Content Update 2017!

Hey all!

I'm pleased to announce that myself and the team are currently in development for a long-awaited content update to Barony! I know many fans have been wanting to get their hands on some new content since the original launch of Cursed Edition last year.

The goal of this update is to provide Barony fans with some brand new levels, exciting new monsters and loot, as well as reworking some of the existing underlying mechanics of the current game to increase the re-playability and depth.

We will also be featuring a brand new editor expansion to improve the map-making experience. Players will be able to customise a bunch of previously hard-coded properties of monsters, items, and other map tiles to help mapmakers create their own challenging custom level sets with specific loot, deadly traps, and fearsome monsters.

As part of our development, we are also taking steps to start avoiding some of the hard-coded level generation mechanics to allow for future things like variable level lengths, difficulties, and other user-made content. Some of the properties may also be making their way into those externally editable text files you know and love.

If you aren't already aware, our twitter handle can be found at https://twitter.com/turning_wheel where we be regularly posting some sneak-peeks of our upcoming work, so be sure to follow and
stay up to date with the clips and images we share.

There will be an announcement thread on the forums where you can discuss the upcoming changes, as well as submit your suggestions or ideas you may have. I know everyone on the team loves reading all the comments and discussion from our community!

We will announce more as our development progresses. Until next time!

Cheers,
Ben

About This Game

Barony is a 3D, first-person roguelike with cooperative multiplayer that brings back the cryptic and intricate designs of classic roguelikes such as Nethack and melds them with RPGs like Ultima Underworld, System Shock, and Daggerfall. Challenge is the calling card of this hard-boiled dungeon-crawler.

Features


  • Gameplay inspired by RPG classics like Ultima Underworld, System Shock, & Daggerfall
  • Roguelike mechanics such as perma-death, random dungeons, cryptic messages, and more
  • Meticulously narrated action that mimics the insane events one could expect to find in games like Nethack
  • A complex yet intuitive drag & drop interface to manage items and character stats
  • Cooperative multiplayer for up to 4 players over internet or LAN (includes Steam and direct-IP connections)
  • Hundreds of unique collectible items and loot, including several rare and mystical artifacts
  • Chock-full of secret areas, special levels, developer easter eggs, and more
  • Bundled level editor, exposed assets, and simple file formats for easy hacking, modding & tinkering

The Story So Far


Barony tells the story of an undead lich named Baron Herx, who terrorized the town of Hamlet in a previous life and is now holding out in a vast subterranean complex known as the Devil's Bastion. As a single hero or a group of adventurers, it is your mission to descend the depths of his abode, confront him in his hellish lair, and destroy him forever. Whether you will simply meet your doom in the dungeons as many have before you or rise to victory against the Baron and his hellspawn is ultimately up to you.
