Hotfix [1.0.63]

  • Fixed an issue with the pathfinding. Heroes and monsters should no longer get stuck in rooms
  • Fixed an issue with the dungeon generation. The game should no longer crash and remove the save during the creation of a new floor

Thanks for your patience. We’ll keep an eye on forums to see if that fixes the issues encountered by many of you.

Hotfix [1.0.59]
  • Implemented a VSync in the option menu
  • Re-uploaded the soundtrack in the game folder (Steam > Steamapps > Common > Dungeon of the Endless > Soundtrack)
  • Fixed an issue with a specific room in the Jungle environment where the player could not move

Warning about the "DEEP FREEZE" DLC

Due to an issue with the Steam store, if you happen to own the Emperor (or Founder, as it was called during its Early Access phase) pack of Endless Legend, make sure you don't already have the DLC before making a purchase.

The Deep Freeze DLC is represented by a little shiny ice cream cone at the bottom left corner of the screen, in the main menu. it won't be as sparkly if you don't own the DLC (yes, we'll work on improving that feedback!).


Thank you,
~Amplitude Studios

Cities: Skylines, Pillars of Etenity, GTA 5—all potential candidates for whiling away this weekend. There is another option: spend some time with one of 2014's best games. Amplitude Studios is the subject of the Steam's latest Free Weekend. That means you can trial the excellent strategy game Endless Legend.

The fantasy 4X is free to try until this Sunday, as is the semi-related roguelike Dungeon of the Endless. In addition, Amplitude's back catalogue is all on sale until April 20—with the full bundle available at a 50% discount.

Endless Legend is a smart and inventive strategy, and a breath of fresh air in comparison to last year's disappointingly stale Civ: Beyond Earth. As part of our 2014 awards we honoured it with a Commendation for Design.

As for Dungeon of the Endless, it's a brutally tough tower-defence roguelike with a lot of interesting ideas. You can read our review for more details.

Hey everyone,

  • Discounts
  • Unlocks
  • Closed Beta for Endless Legend
  • MP Update Dungeon of the Endless
  • DLC for Dungeon of the Endless


DISCOUNTS

Stretch goals and event page available here: Amplitude Studios’ Free Weekend. The unlocks include Team Fortress 2 characters for DotE and a digital artbook for EL and DotE. Spread the word!



DUNGEON OF THE ENDLESS UPDATE




Release Notes [1.0.58]
  • Added a save and load system in multiplayer and auto save at the beginning of each floor. It also allows the host to reload a game with disconnected players. See Multiplayer Save part below for more details.
  • Added a share items feature in multiplayer. Items in the inventory are now shared between players. The backpack is still for personal items. Be careful when you go to another level and check your inventory before leaving!
  • Researches are now shared between players on multiplayer
  • Added a new menu (top left corner or “P” shortcut) in multiplayer with the following features:
    • Players can give heroes to the other players
    • Players can check the network ping state of each player
    • Players can still exchange resources
    • The host can kick players
  • Added an option on multiplayer which allows the host to choose between private (only by invitation – default), friends only, and public game
  • Added DLCs listing in the main menu
  • Added more variety in the weapon impact VFXs
  • Improved the main menu light and VFX
  • Fixed the negative restore Science cost bug
  • Reduced the Tear Gas module damage over time
  • Improved the loading time when generating a new floor


Multiplayer Save

The host can save and quit the game in the same conditions as the solo mode (only during the strategic phase). Every player will be disconnected and receive the save. One of the players (and only one) must go in “Multiplayer / Load” and select the game (he/she then becomes the host). The other players can then see the loaded game in the session list (only available for players of the previously saved game).

This feature allows a disconnected player to get back into the game. If a network issue occurs, the host can save and quit, then reload the game with everybody. We’re working on small improvements to make this process simpler.

The auto saves are also available on multiplayer mode. If the host crashes or is disconnected, he/she will be able to load the game at the beginning of the current floor with the other players.


DEEP FREEZE DLC

Hi guys,

Once again, thank you all for taking part in the Hero Creation Contest.

The winner of part 1 (thread) has just been announced: it's Rosetta QV1819, by wkinchlea.





The contest is divided into three parts:
  • Biography and archetype [Forum submissions + G2G vote] -- WINNER: Rosetta QV1819]
  • Visual [Forum submissions + G2G vote]
  • Hero finalisation [G2G vote]



YOUR SUBMISSION
Your submission must include all the following elements:
  • A picture attached to your post
  • Optional: include a brief description of what you have tried to achieve and short guidelines for our artist

To keep a visual coherence in the game, our pixel Artist, Simon, will then draw the final sprites, based on the content provided by the winner.


GUIDELINES
  • Post your submissions here: http://forums.amplitude-studios.com/showthread.php?65238-G2G-Creation-Contest-The-Next-DotE-Hero-VISUAL
  • You are limited to three submissions
  • We will only accept submissions that include a picture
  • If you included a brief description and guidelines for our artist, we will only accept the ones in English
  • Keep your submissions in one post only (you can edit it until the deadline)
  • We will only accept original pieces of artwork: do not include references/art that you haven't produced
  • Use the art style and the technique of your choice and not necessarily pixel art
  • /!\ Take into account every element of the hero created by wkinchlea (link): race, gender, composition, weapon and personality
  • Rosetta uses a sword: we'll accept anything that resembles it, but we'll have to decline submissions that are too exotic for our taste!


ADVICE
  • The winner of part 1 is a lady robot: however, it doesn't need to have a human / lady human appearance
  • Use the existing elements of the game (creatures, environment, lore) to create a hero coherent with the game background
  • Surprise us!


DEADLINE
Submit your ideas before March 2nd. We’ll be closing the thread at midday (CET). We will choose the three best submissions that will move on to the G2G vote.


PRIZE
The two lucky winners (part 1 and part 2) will receive the following:
  • Your name in the game credits
  • A unique Dungeon of the Endless T-shirt
  • Three copies of Dungeon of the Endless (Crystal Pack), to play co-op with their friends!


Please note that Amplitude reserves the right to modify the 3 proposals and will work with the winners to finalise the design and adapt it to development constraints. Simon, our artist, will provide the final visual, based on the winning submission.


Good luck to everyone!

Hi guys,

As you all know, we have been focusing on improving the multiplayer at the moment, amongst other things. In the meantime, we thought a little something fun for you all. And that’s of course a new contest: we are giving you the opportunity to create the next Dungeon of the Endless hero.


This contest will be divided in three parts:
  • Biography and archetype [Forum submissions + G2G vote]
  • Visual [Forum submissions + G2G vote]
  • Hero finalisation [G2G vote]



YOUR SUBMISSION
Your submission must include all the following elements:
  • A name (20 characters max)
  • A race: Vaulter (human), Nidya, Broken Lord, Necrophage, Sister of Mercy, Drakken, Machine, Jotus, Hurna, Silics
  • A gender
  • A biography (1000 characters max)
  • 1-2 personality traits
  • Composition: weak, normal or strong
  • Weapon: sword, spear, machine gun, or gun


GUIDELINES
  • You are limited to three submissions. Please also note that we will only accept submissions posted in English.
  • Keep your submissions in one post only (you can edit it until the deadline) in this thread: http://forums.amplitude-studios.com/showthread.php?60487-G2G-Creation-Contest-The-Next-DotE-Hero
  • Do not include elements defining the hero’s appearance, except the ones listed above (that's limited to part 2 only!). We will exclude submissions that do not take this into account.
  • Do not create links with other heroes for the storyline: we’ll handle this in part 3.
  • Do not give gameplay instructions


ADVICE

  • Get ideas from what’s already available in game. There’s no need to invent a new race for instance.
  • Keep it short and simple: complicated ideas aren’t always the best
  • Have fun


DEADLINE

Submit your ideas before February 16th. We’ll be closing the thread at midday (CET). We will choose the three best submissions that will move on to the G2G vote.


PRIZE

The two lucky winners (of Part 1 and Part 2) will receive the following:
  • Your name in the game credits
  • A unique Dungeon of the Endless T-shirt
  • Three copies of Dungeon of the Endless (Crystal Pack), to play co-op with their friends!


/!\ Please note that Amplitude reserves the right to modify the 3 proposals and will work with the winners to finalise the design and adapt it to development constraints. Jeff, our writer, will work on the biography in particular to make sure it fits within the game.


Good luck to everyone!
