Partly Cloudy

Greetings, Dwarven friends!

Currently we have several things ongoing: translation work, preparing the OST, and working on cloud saves. Cloud saving is now ready on our test branch, the OST is likely to be ready at the end of the upcoming week, and the translation work will be an ongoing project.

Since cloud saving has the potential to break saves, we are asking for volunteers to opt in to verify whether or not it’s working properly. Obviously, we do not want to see anyone lose progress, and do not want to add it to the main branch untested. Here is how to opt in and help us test the cloud save branch:

*In your library, right click on Regions of Ruin
*Click properties, then betas
*From the dropdown menu, choose cloudtesting, and enter password imadwarftester

The game will then update you to the cloud testing branch. If you want to keep any saves that you create while testing, we recommend remaining on the cloud save branch. Players that want to ensure there is no chance of file loss should avoid opting in or trying the feature until we fully update the main game with the cloud save update. If you encounter issues with the cloud saving branch (or the main game, as at any other time!) please report the bugs to us so that we can get them tackled as soon as possible.

Weekly Patch 19 (1.1.60) - Looking for a few good Dwarves!

Greetings, Dwarven friends!

This week’s work has had a primary focus on localizations, something we know that many of you are waiting for! Stephen has gathered up all of the game’s text into a localization kit, and we have now established a translations channel on our Discord server for those interested in participating. For each language, we will be looking for a “captain” to lead the way and help distribute the workload for those working on that language. Individual Discord channels will be added for languages as we get volunteers to work on them. You can sign up for translations, or just come and hang out with us! Our Discord server can be found here:

Discord Server

To prepare for localization, the game now reads text from .txt files, and we are on the lookout for any inconsistencies that arise as a result of that change. If you see text out of place, please report it to us right away!

1.1.60 patch notes

- numerous UI adjustments in preparation for translations
- all in game text now reads from .txt files (preparation for localisation)
- increased dialog boxes and fonts for readability
- added a cave scene slide for the title screen
- lowered the cost of library upgrades
- a few other minor fixes

“"Pretty close to perfection 9.75/10. Am I enjoying it? I am freaking LOVING it. There's literally nothing about this game I don't like so far, I love it. It's like kingdom, but an RPG... pretty amazing with awesome skill progression"”
Brutally honest RizeUpGaming

“A fun action game inspired by Kingdom’s visuals that actually lets you FIGHT the bad guys!”

“"I am having a BALL with it. I do believe you are going to love it, I'm having a looooot of fun slaughtering these evil bunnies!"”

About This Game

Ever wonder what would happen if Kingdom met a broad, skill based open world RPG? Welcome to Regions of Ruin.

Regions of Ruin is a 2D side-scrolling RPG with town-building where you are introduced to an open world that progressively challenges your hero and settlement the further you delve into the vast continent.

You will discover a foreboding land ravaged by hundreds of years of hardship. Where, kingdoms have risen and fallen, settlements have been laid to waste and overrun by warring groups, and great mysteries lay hidden and waiting to be unearthed - assuming you can defeat their jealous guardians.

Main Features include:

• Styled combat system with stats and levelling
• Skill tree to focus your fighting style
• Extensive loot and rare items to discover
• Forge your own equipment or smelt it for resources
• Open world exploration with a hand crafted environment, no randomized maps or levels, everything you see has been made with care
• Customised town building and expansion
• Rescue and recruit dwarves for your township (save them from extinction!)
• Send workers to harvest resources from explored regions
• Hire Mercenaries to help in battle
• Multitude of Quests and a main storyline
