Barony V3.2.3 - The Alchemy Update Is Now Released!

Hi All,

I'm pleased to announce that the V3.2.3 Alchemy Update is now released and out of beta! This build also supports the full release of our "Myths & Outcasts" DLC!

https://store.steampowered.com/app/1010820/Barony_Myths__Outcasts/

Inside you'll also find we've added 51 new Steam Achievements that incorporate some of our new Alchemy and Unarmed skills, as well as DLC-exclusive achievements that will help guide you in mastering each of our new monsters and signature classes in the "Myths & Outcasts" DLC.

Changes:
  • Added support for 51 new Steam Achievements!
  • Holding left or right ALT while "using" a potion forces it to be equipped in your hand. (e.g Potions of Polymorph auto drink on right click, now can be quickly held in hand without using the inventory menu). Default combination is ALT + right clicking inventory/hotbar or ALT + hotbar number keys (0-9).
  • Polymorphed or otherwise monstrous players now can make idle monster sound effects via the "use" hotkey and selecting nothing on screen. Default binding is right click.
  • Added setting to mute idle player-made monster sound effects in the settings->audio tab.
  • Drinking a bottle of water now also dissipates the effects of Polymorph (Swimming in water, drinking from a regular sink are the other ways to negate Polymorph on players)

Bug Fixes:
  • Fixed Alchemy recipe "juice + confusion = confusion". Now creates booze.
  • Fixed Alembics stacking behavior, now should never stack.
  • Fixed incorrect female Insectoid arm models.
  • Fixed error message spam when dying while having the chest GUI open.
  • Fixed allied monsters not pathing through other players.
  • Fixed Unarmed damage against monsters, previously used incorrect damage multipliers and some Liches were immortal to punches.

Have fun with this new update, and the new DLC, all!

Cheers,

Ben

About This Game

Barony is a 3D, first-person roguelike with cooperative multiplayer that brings back the cryptic and intricate designs of classic roguelikes such as Nethack and melds them with RPGs like Ultima Underworld, System Shock, and Daggerfall. Challenge is the calling card of this hard-boiled dungeon-crawler.

Features


  • Gameplay inspired by RPG classics like Ultima Underworld, System Shock, & Daggerfall
  • Roguelike mechanics such as perma-death, random dungeons, cryptic messages, and more
  • Meticulously narrated action that mimics the insane events one could expect to find in games like Nethack
  • Intuitive drag & drop interface to manage items and character stats
  • Cooperative multiplayer for up to 4 players over internet or LAN (includes Steam and direct-IP connections)
  • Hundreds of unique collectible items and loot, including several rare and mystical artifacts
  • Chock-full of secret areas, special levels, developer easter eggs, and more
  • Bundled level editor, exposed assets, and simple file formats for easy hacking, modding & tinkering

The Story So Far


Barony tells the story of an undead lich named Baron Herx, who terrorized the town of Hamlet in a previous life and is now holding out in a vast subterranean complex known as the Devil's Bastion. As a single hero or a group of adventurers, it is your mission to descend the depths of his abode, confront him in his hellish lair, and destroy him forever. Whether you will simply meet your doom in the dungeons as many have before you or rise to victory against the Baron and his hellspawn is ultimately up to you.

The developers describe the content like this:

This game may contain content not appropriate for all ages: Combat and traps feature cartoony blood. The game also features alcohol, occult themes, and some sexual content in the form of comedic innuendo. Some players may find Easter-eggs that contain swearing.
