Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays to all, we're still working away on version 1.1 of Fictorum and wanted to share some of the things we're up to.  Fictorum is also currently for sale on Steam for 25% off until January 4th!

Happy Holidays!
What's a Fictorum blog without us destroying something? Today, we're using the classic Christmas tree spell with chain reaction and spread runes to... uhh... spread... a little holiday cheer. We hope you have a lovely holiday and a safe and peaceful New Year.

Preview of v1.1 Major Changes
Better Performance

Fictorum is now running quite well on Unreal Engine 4.18.  Our last release was on UE 4.15 and we've had difficulties getting to the latest Unreal Engine. This upgrade has caused most of our delays, but it's been worth it—it comes with new tools and several performance improvements.  Along with that, we've optimized some of the code we've written enhance performance even further.

Better AI

Archers should no longer find cliff faces so enticing to stand next to, and enemies won't all pursue you on the same path.  Here's a quick gif with the upgraded AI in practice.

New Camera Options

Many have requested changing the camera to the right side, which we've implemented. We're also working on getting our over-the-shoulder camera looking and performing better as well as maintaining third-person within houses. Of course, there will still be the option to enter first-person, should you choose.

“Fictorum deliveries on the promises it makes and is an enjoyable experience. It might look and feel a bit dated don’t let that put you off what is a brilliant title. If you can get yourself lost in it’s spellcasting and shaping mechanic then you will find a lot of fun to be had.”
7.5/10 – Game Grin

“If you don’t know what you are doing, Fictorum can be fun; if you do, then it is downright addicting. It’s a game that invites you to learn its intricacies, but you may not want to, and that’s fine; however, if you do go through the effort, you may turn into a mage-god, capable of delivering menacing destruction at a whim.”
7.5/10 – Neowin

About This Game

A reign of terror never feels so satisfying as when you leave a literal pile of rubble in your wake. Giving wizards a much-needed makeover, Fictorum is an action role-playing game that features fully-destructible structures, a randomized node-based world map, and a satisfying magic system with on-the-fly spell shaping and customization.

In Fictorum, your mage wields real, legendary power right from the start—unlike those found in most magic-centric games. Our magic system uses a dynamic and intuitive spellcasting and shaping system that grants the player an unrivaled level of customization and reconfiguration. Up to three runes can be applied to a spell, each affecting a different spell characteristic. The runes are easily swapped to suit the player’s current need, interest, or whim. You might amplify ice blasts to freeze enemies in place, expand the radius of a fireball explosion to crumble a bridge and hinder pursuers, or chain a lightning attack together to strike several targets in a cluster. Shaping makes spellcasting much more tactical and satisfying.

Rather than starting out as a hapless farm boy who stumbles into his powers and avoids enemies or entire areas until leveling up, players take on the role of an established wizarding badass, hell-bent on his mission for revenge. Yet challenge is abundant—the wizard must bring down a sprawling empire by himself, besting scores of bandits, cadres of Inquisitors, and hordes of corrupted abominations on his quest for vengeance. The protagonist has access to unlimited magical powers, making the game less about spamming that one spell that works passably well until it becomes upgradable. The experience is more about tailoring your magical arsenal, giving the player a wide range of freedom and the ability to effectively, efficiently, and enthusiastically destroy every obstacle. The randomly-generated world map features locations where every structure (from large buildings to bookshelves to tables to even a lone fork) can be demolished.
