Fictorum 0.9.3 Beta Update

Howdy mages—One more beta patch down! We've replaced all of our old destructible castles and towers with brand new ones. Additionally, the amulet slot has been changed to a pauldron slot, allowing for more dynamic characters.

Gameplay Demo
We submitted for PAX West last week and needed a three minute video of unedited gameplay, so Chip put together this video introducing our game!

Fictorum 0.9.3 Beta
Major Change: New Destructible Castles and Towers
All of our levels have brand new castle assets, designed by our own Leif Drace. https://gfycat.com/OrangeUnlinedBasenji 
Major Change: New Pauldrons Slot
We made the choice to replace all of our amulets with pauldrons. Seeing as how pauldrons actually appear on the character model, we thought this was a much more interesting way to do our itemization. If you have an existing character, your amulets will be changed to either a cloth or plate pauldron.

Fire Beam
Here's our latest spell—Fire Beam spreads fire so easily that you can almost write your name with it! https://gfycat.com/SlimGraveGrayling
Improved Spell Decals and Effects
Chip wanted to have more visually tangible destruction left behind from spells. We think these new decals and effects absolutely fit the bill! https://gfycat.com/CompetentFrailAlleycat

You might have noticed above that Fire spells with a Manifest rune or a high Manifest multiplier will spread fire based on the radius of the spell—You'll see a big difference on larger spells like Flame Strike and Meteor.

About This Game

Fictorum is an action RPG featuring customizable, dynamic spell-casting. You are a powerful wizard of a forbidden magical order, the Fictorum, with the unique ability to shape and master all schools of magic. Stretching the limits of your power, you have survived your own execution at the hands of the Inquisition, a sprawling theocratic empire bent on eradicating all Fictorum. As the last of your kind, you will shatter the Inquisition as vengeance for your exterminated order, as well as anyone else who dares to stand in your path.

Demolish your surroundings with legendary magic: Become the wizard that you’ve always wanted to play—Wield awe-inspiring magic with explosive impacts that will send your enemies flying and shatter structures into rubble with a single, well-placed spell.

Dynamically improve your spells with our spell-shaping system: Shape a spell towards any of the available runes to amplify specific properties of any spell. Mastering this system will allow you to turn a fireball into a high-explosive cluster bomb, or a basic ice blast into a leaping ball of frozen doom! And these customizations aren’t set—you can constantly reconfigure your runesets and spells.

Traverse a world shattered by magic on your mission of vengeance: Progress through our randomly-generated world map, as you search for the Grand Inquisitor, to avenge your massacred order. Conflict is rampant throughout the world, and many locations have difficult choices to make—will you choose to fight your way through a fortified town, potentially finding new equipment, or will you take the path of least resistance, saving your strength for the battles to come? Do you investigate a local execution or use the opportunity to loot valuables in the nearby town? The choice is yours.

Find powerful items and new spells to increase your immense power: Each location has opportunities for encountering new spells and equipment that increase your magical potency and keep you safe. You can also trade magical essence that you find for new equipment, or use it to enchant the armor, spells, or runes that you already possess, further enhancing your capabilities.
