GLOBAL EVENTS (IN PROGRESS)!!



Hi all,


After releasing procedurally generated battles, we are working on Global Events. Like community suggested, those will be either positive or choice-based.
We have almost to 50 of those already (there will be at least double that). You are all very welcome to suggest additional ones!







CHANGE LOG:

  • new location: Well of Souls - deep in the North, there is a place where Undead King previously ruled:

    Souls Well

  • new feature - exchange units in Deploy Turn - this is feature mostly for Open World battles which don’t have shop beforehand

  • balance: AOF2 and AOF3 will have slower experience earning ratio - this is due to introducing endless procedurally generated battles

  • new potion: Demon’s Blood Potion (+3 HP and +3 MP for Undead/Demons)

  • new items: Phantom Shield, Night Robe, Assassin’s Armour, Noble’s Cloak, Wizard’s Cloak, Ranger’s Cloak, Mirror Cloak, Souls Bell, Sea Weed

  • update: unit is added to Bestiary whenever is seen in battle. It’s important when deciding if unit can be evolved to higher unit type.

  • update: merchant discount also applies to items (but no treasure or potions)

  • new: Quick Start section in Modding Guide - it should help with setting up first Workshop Item

  • new: hint to fill-in your team in Shop

  • update: units portrait will indicate ensnared and entangled status

  • balance: tuning Open World (random) battles; player receives gold after random battle

  • bugfix: Lifedrain works when killing enemy

  • bugfix: AI will use all melee attacks when blocking enemy (and coming close)


    And the latest episode from Cornish Knight:

    Please subscribe as he’s doing really awesome work! (recently he hit 50th videos mark!)


    Have a nice weekend!

Reviews

“Age of Fear succeeds because of its combat: using units to protect fragile allies, incorporating hex-based mechanics without the geometric restriction. The result is some satisfying strategy (...)”
6/8 – Out of Eight

“(...) it offers some stunning AI. Not once when I was playing this game did I feel like the computer behaved in a strange or unintelligent fashion (...)”

FEATURE LIST

  • Two long scenarios - play as an evil necromancer or a noble knight in fully voiced story driven campaigns!
  • Hex-free battle system - units are no longer constrained to artificial grids. Unit's size matters too.
  • Steam Workshop integration - create your own world and share with the community!
  • Easy to Play but Hard to Master - Age of Fear is very easy to pick up but with deep and emergent strategy.
  • Low hardware requirements - the game will even work on that old laptop of yours.
  • Permanent death - all characters that fall in a battle will stay dead - unless an evil Necromancer raises them as Zombies!
  • Diverse enemy roster - game features 160+ unique units with over 250 different spells and skills.
  • AI behaviour is modelled on a neural network system and influence maps. Age of Fear has probably one of the most advanced strategic AI's ever created!
  • Items and artifacts - there are over 100 unique items in Age of Fear, which are randomly distributed. Items not only give bonuses, but also unlock powerful skills and spells.
