What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Ultimate ADOM has been in closed Alpha since Summer 2020. We knew from the start that developing a game so complex and with so many moving parts to it as the sequel to ADOM is impossible without involving the community. We need you to tell us what is fun and what needs to be improved, and balance this with our own vision of Ultimate ADOM. As we are going to roll out upcoming massive feature updates one by one, we are looking forward to sharing this road together with you.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“While development of a roguelike is never really finished and we intend to support Ultimate ADOM with many updates after a full release, we are aiming for the end of 2021 to have all the features we originally envisioned for the game. We are in for a very busy year!”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“There's still a lot of features we are going to implement along the road to full release.

* The remaining skill trees (there's 60 more planned, allowing for even more unique character builds)
* Hunger will force you to scavenge for food or perish ignobly in the Caverns of Chaos. Right now both food and the hunger bar are only decorative.
* Corruption may grant you short term benefits but eventually turns you into a wobbling mass of Chaos. Right now you can gain corruption points, but they will not do anything to you.
* Main quests! All factions will have a variable quest line with choices along the way, giving you purpose beyond hunting for loot and gold.
* Side quests! Random NPCs will want to interact with you by other means than blades and spells.
* And many more things to make life easier for the players and harder for the characters.
* Modding! Build your own dungeons, classes, races and items or adapt existing ones to your liking.
* More classes, more spells, more skills, more dungeons.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Caverns of Chaos are open to every brave adventurer! You can explore the depth of the dungeon all the way to level 20 where a very harsh boss fight awaits you if you dare. Five unique class templates allow for a wide combination of skills to help you delve the dungeons and cleanse them of corruption - or join in.

While some things are not balanced and fully fleshed out yet, there are several dozens of hours of content in already.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes, as a reward to being an early part of our Community, we will be giving a variable discount during Early Access and increase prices a tiny bit when we feel the game is complete.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Ever since we launched the Alpha, we have been in constant communication with our players on all channels available - the Steam forums, the Roguelike Discord server, our Youtube channel or on Twitter and Facebook. We are simply too old for Tiktok. We are listening everywhere, but most of the discussion and feedback rounds will take place here on the Steam forums.

Thank you so much for being a part of this journey!”

After over 25 years, here comes the official sequel to classic ADOM.

Experience the modern sequel of the traditional roguelike dungeon-crawling classic. Enjoy unlimited replayability through endless procedurally generated dungeons, countless monsters, grafting, crafting and a vast amount of skill trees..

DELVE INTO THE LORE



Evil has been vanquished. Peace has returned to Ancardia, and the peasants dare to dream once more of prosperity. Seven very different factions vie for control over the cataclysmic aftermath left behind by Andor Drakon’s defeat. And somewhere, deep down in an inhospitable cave, ChAoS is stirring again.

Pick up your blade, prepare your spells, check your daggers and ready your bow, for you are about to enter the ominous Caverns of Chaos. Choose your allegiance carefully, for you are nothing more than an expendable asset to the masters you choose.

Fight for a mercenary's glory and purse, for the justice of a folk in decline, for the light of purity or even for ChAoS itself. Every choice you make will determine how you approach the ever-changing Caverns of Chaos before you.

CLASSIC ROGUELIKE VIRTUES MEET MODERN FEATURES


Endless procedurally generated dungeons, countless monsters, items and a grand selection of very different skills allow for unlimited replayability.

Interactive surroundings! Topple braziers, push coffins, smash doors or turn them into wooden golems to (hopefully) serve your bidding.

Choose or toggle between graphic mode and traditional ASCII at any time. Toggle between 3D mode and top down view, in ASCII or in the graphic mode.

Intuitive control system will get rid of the need to memorize hundreds of keys. Though you can still do so, if you're into that. We are not judging.


UNRIVALED COMPLEXITY AND CONTENT


A great variety of classes, genders, races and allegiances to choose from allow for extensive build diversity and change the way the game challenges you. NPCs will react differently, new quests will be open to you and the world may change completely based on your decisions.

A deep magic system with several unique schools of magic and over 80 of spells to choose from, ranging from summoning demons to animating the very walls of the dungeon to aid you - the possibilities are endless.

Over 380 skills in 25 skill trees and dozens of secret skills trees that are only waiting to be unlocked.

A stealth system introduces a totally new way of playing the game: Instead of hacking or blasting all opposition to pieces you now can sneak past adversaries and avoid conflict.

Turn yourself into an abomination and graft your enemies’ body parts on yourself. They won’t need them anymore, and what's better than wielding two swords? Two swords and an axe to harvest more body parts than ever before.

CHALLENGING AND UNCOMPROMISING, YET REWARDING


Countless options of how to tackle the dungeons awaiting you. Befriend or tame creatures, slay monsters, delve deeper or keep exploring and expanding the cavern levels you have already found. Over 200 different foes await, each requiring matching tactics.

"Dying is part of the fun" - Each death is permanent. Your progress however will allow continuous improvement of future characters.
