Vroegtijdige toegang

Ontvang onmiddellijke toegang en begin met spelen; raak betrokken bij dit spel terwijl het zich ontwikkelt.

Opmerking: Dit spel in vroegtijdige toegang is nog niet voltooid en kan mogelijk wel of niet veranderen. Als je niet staat te springen om dit spel in de huidige staat te spelen, kun je beter afwachten hoe het spel zich verder ontwikkelt. Meer informatie

Wat de ontwikkelaars zeggen:

Waarom vroegtijdige toegang?

“Early Access will provide an irreplaceable opportunity to reach a wider audience. Though most of the development is done, the community's feedback is a vital resource to polish and improve the gaming experience.”

Hoelang blijft dit spel ongeveer in vroegtijdige toegang?

“It's my intention to release the full game within a few months.”

Hoe gaat de volledige versie verschillen van de versie met vroegtijdige toegang?

“I plan to include three more parts set during the Second Macedonian War with new enemies, equipment, battles, random events and a more satisfying ending. I have also designed and prepared more Steam Achievements.”

Wat is de huidige staat van de versie met vroegtijdige toegang?

“The early access version contains the first eight parts of the game out of eleven planned. It concludes with the end of the Second Punic War. After the last battle, your character will retire and receive a nice score bonus. The feature allowing players to build improved characters based on how well their most successful ones performed is already in place and working.”

Zal het spel anders geprijsd worden tijdens en na vroegtijdige toegang?

“No price changes are planned when A Legionary's Life leaves early access.”

Hoe zijn jullie van plan de community te betrekken bij het ontwikkelproces?

“I will check the Steam discussions forum for feedback and opinions. Of course, I can't promise I will follow every suggestion, but I will give some thought to everything that is said. Also, bug reports are greatly appreciated.”

Update 0.11: hotkeys, shared kills, improved rotations and more

Improvements:

  • You can use hotkeys to select combat actions and activities during the "Lull" phase. You can press Ctrl at any time to highlight the available hotkeys.
  • Combat Tutorial: the first time you enter the melee phase of a fight, you will see a detailed tutorial. It is automatically disabled when closed, but can be reactivated in the Options dialogue.
  • Shared kills: when an enemy has suffered any kind of successful attack from both you and an ally (resisted Feints and Shield attacks do not count as successful), it won't matter who landed the killing blow: the kill is always counted as *shared*. All bonuses and points are halved (and rounded up, where necessary). This makes combat with allies feel more cooperative, as the "race" for the killing blow was admittedly frustrating.
  • There's a new Help in the Character screen.

Kills missed because of a sudden rotation have been reported as annoying by several players. For this reason, two measures have been implemented:

  • An alert will appear three rounds before a rotation happens.
  • In addition to the above, if you reduce an opponent's health to less than half its full value when you are rotated, you will receive half the bonuses for a kill (rounded up). The opponent will also figure in your list of vanquished enemies with the prefix *Wounded*.
    The only circumstance in which this does not apply is if a companion helped in the fight. In other words, a vanquished entry that is both *Shared* and *Wounded* won't count, as that would be way too cheap (it's a very rare scenario anyway.).

Changes:
  • The Help shown during foraging missions should be more informative.
  • The minimum amount of settlements appearing has been increased by 1, while the Intellect influence on the time spent to gather supplies and the Awareness influence on the collected amount of supplies have been halved. With these changes, the overall difficulty shouldn't change for expert player, but it should be more accessible to new players.
  • It is now rarer to skip two or more combat rounds in a row (i.e. the Quickness check is much easier to pass after the first failure).
  • The militiamen in the very first fight have "Content" Morale instead of "High". This should make the battle a little easier.
  • The Shield Skill check used in the "safe" option when assaulting the walls of New Carthage is now easier than before.
  • The frontal assault during the second battle lasts two rotations instead of three.
  • In the alternative route of the same battle, the Fatigue penalty for failing the Endurance check during the flanking maneuver has been reduced.
  • The Morale penalty you receive for failing to understand what's going on at Ilipa has been reduced.
  • The loss of Morale after wounds is now constant rather than random.
  • The "bandits" random event won't trigger unless you have a Rank or your Sword and Shield Skills are both at least 35.

Very minor update and demo

I've just released a very minor update to solve a potential compatibility issue with imported saves from the demo. Besides, the demo is now available directly from Steam.

For the time being, I'm focusing on what can be improved based on the feedback I received.
Thank you all for your support.

Over dit spel

A Legionary's Life lets you play as a Roman soldier during the years of the Second Punic War and beyond. Rise up through the ranks and win prestigious awards or just focus on making it home in one piece; it's up to you.

This is a unique single-player game with RPG elements, extensive usage of attribute and skill checks, a turn-based combat system involving many variables (including morale, reach, confined space and high ground) and a touch of roguelike features. Among them, permadeath. If you are unfamiliar with the term, it means you'll have to start over if your character dies; but don't worry: the game is designed to be replayable and you'll see only a fraction of it in each run. Also, you'll be able to spend points on your next legionary based on how well your most successful characters performed.

Try the demo

This game is unlike most RPGs. Your character won't be successful at everything. Challenges should be picked carefully based on your legionary's strengths and weaknesses. In general, the game is not designed to put you in a situation where the odds are against you unless you willingly step into it. At times, you may fail to perform a task and take a mild penalty in Morale and/or Opinions (a measure of your relationships with relevant entities within the game, like your superiors and your fellow soldiers). Don't get discouraged when this happens, it is nothing more than a minor setback you can easily recover from. If you think the game is treating you unfairly in some situations, feel free to drop a line on the discussions forum. This is an Early Access version and may need rebalancing.

Most of all, I strongly recommend that you try the demo before you buy this game. It's here on Steam and it's free, there's no better way to make sure that A Legionary's Life suits your taste. The demo contains the first 3 parts out of 11 planned.
