Wizardry Online is now on Steam and is Free to Play!

Wizardry Online is a free-to-play, fantasy, hardcore MMO that takes elements from the original Wizardry games and re-imagines them as a modern MMO experience.

In Wizardry Online, everything is trying to kill you. Ferocious monsters, deadly traps and other players lie in wait for you to make even the slightest mistake. The difficulty level is insane. The dungeons are brutal. There is no auto-healing. You will earn your levels. And when you die, you die forever.

The only way to survive is to fight. Real-time reactions make the difference between a hit and a miss. If you don’t aim your spells properly, they will miss or, worse, hit another player. Skill, timing and team tactics are the only things standing between life and death. In Wizardry Online, you must play your best in every encounter – because you’re always just one mistake away from oblivion.

Proteus is Now Available on Steam and is 10% off until Feb 6th at 10AM PST!

Proteus is a game about exploration and immersion in a dream-like island world where the soundtrack to your play is created by your surroundings. Presented and controlled like a classic first-person shooter, the primary means of interaction is simply your presence in the world. The procedurally generated islands are home to creatures natural and imagined, tranquil valleys and ruins with magical properties. Think Doom meets Brian Eno.

We've just released an update to Steam Greenlight based directly on feedback and requests from the community – both developers and consumers. This update includes the ability to skip items in your vote queue, improvements to collections, and new stats for game and software developers.




Since the Steam Greenlight service went live back in August, an average of three new games have been posted to Steam Greenlight every single day. With so many great game and software titles being added it can be pretty hard to keep up. One of the great ways to discover new titles is to just jump into your queue. It is your own personalized queue of games you haven’t voted on. From there you can vote Yes, No, and now 'Ask me again later' to skip a title for consideration again at a later date.

If you really like a particular Greenlight entry, you can favorite it to easily find it later, or now you can opt to separately 'follow' items to be notified when the developer posts new announcements. Similarly, you can now 'follow' collections in Greenlight to be notified when collection authors post announcements.

Meanwhile, a new set of detailed statistics are now available for developers to show exactly how many people are looking at their item, voting, and how that adds up over time.

You can read the full update details on the Greenlight blog here.
Product Update - Valve
AirMech Version 15008.0 January 28th, 2013

We're introducing a new feature with this patch--Salvage! Now you can clean up that mess left after a battle and profit from it at the same time. Any units or AirMechs with a repair ability can also use it to Salvage destroyed units for Credits ingame. It's still a bit buggy, and a work in progress, but we're interested to see how this adds to options during gameplay. Do I spend time cleaning up this area for extra income, or press the battle against the enemy? As time is your most valuable resource in AirMech, it opens up interesting choices for the player. Feedback in the forums is welcome!

Faction Charters! They are working now, but be aware that the Faction Charter is consumed when you create the Faction! We do not want a million Factions, and do not want people renaming them. Think very carefully before you create it, because it costs 1000 Diamonds every time you create one. This price is designed so that people only create Factions when they are serious. Don't have the Diamonds? Chances are someone who you want to start the Faction with does, just ask nicely.

Updates:
- New AirMech Variant: Steampunk Saucer
- New Hat Flair: Football Helmet
- New Quests: Power Play
- Faction Creation interface implemented
- Increased the range in which healing units willing prioritize disabling an active ‘Bear Trap’ by.
- Increased the amount of quests that award diamonds.
- Re-added the ‘Help’ button to the pause menu.
- Made some modifications to secure/capture outpost order regarding how units attack outposts they are securing
- Added Salvage System. Destroyed units can be reclaimed by healing units and Osprey.
- Network error messages should now appropriately be translated to their respective languages.
- Added a ‘Waiting’ timer to the matchmaking lobby.
- New badges added for people with gold/silver VIP status.

Balance changes:
- Fixes to overly high Grinder damage. Grinder base melee DPS is now 210.
- Grinder can now be impacted by the ‘Stasis’ effect, reducing damage by half. Normally this effect only applies reduced attack speed, but due to how the Grinder functions it made more sense to work towards damage instead of attack speed to achieve a similar result.
- Grinder will no longer damage stasis mines/bear traps.
- Modification of neutral units on Duel and Nesthorn
- make map neutral units not abductable
- add a short radar ‘unjam’ range on all AirMechs

Bug Fixes:
- Fixed a bug with the ‘Tomcat’ Striker variant preview displaying detached wings.
- Cleaned up text display at lower resolutions.
- Fixed the explosion effect on the creeper detonate animation.
- Fixed the alignment of the version number display in game that was trailing off the right side of the screen.
- Hats should now fit correctly on all Warthog variants.
- Fixes to CPU lag detection (previously referred to as FPS lag)
- Bug fix for spectators sometimes stuck in game at the end of a match
- Bug fix to Saucer’s increased abduction rate on ability level up (wasn’t working)
