UPDATE #9 – FRENCH



NOW IN FRENCH TOO

Dear Players,
This time only one but soo important update – you can now play Tower of Time fully in French.
Big thanks to our translators, and long-time fans, Agnieszka Szymanska and Michaël Bouleau, for translating the whole game to French.

MAINTENANT, AUSSI EN FRANCAIS

Chers joueurs,
Cette fois une seule mise à jour, mais teeellement importante : vous pouvez désormais jouer à l’intégralité de Tower of Time en français.
Un grand merci à nos traducteurs, et fans de longue date, Agnieszka Szymanski et Michaël Bouleau, pour avoir traduit le jeu complet en français.


WHAT IS NEXT?

The next patch will introduce NG++ that will allow you to skip the story parts and play all champions since the beginning. That will turn Tower of Time into fast-paced tactical RPG with interesting party building options.

If you feel that we deserve it – you can vote for us in IndieDB Best Indie Game of 2018. Voting takes only few seconds and no account is required.

That would help us a lot. Thanks
https://www.indiedb.com/games/tower-of-time


ET LA SUITE ?

La prochaine mise à jour introduira un mode NG++ qui permettra d’ignorer les parties histoire et de jouer tous les champions dès le début. Ce mode transformera Tower of Time en un RPG tactique au rythme effréné avec des compositions d’équipe intéressantes.

Si vous pensez que nous le méritons, vous pouvez voter pour nous sur IndieDB Best Indie Game of 2018. Voter ne prend que quelques secondes et ne demande pas de créer un compte.

Cela nous aiderait énormément. Merci !

En espérant que vous aimerez jouer à Tower of Time

Cheers / À bientôt !

PATCH #8: OPTIMIZE AND SAVE THE PLANET



OPTIMIZE THE GAMES AND SAVE OUR PLANET -- PATCH NOTES



Global warming is evidently becoming an issue and we still have only one planet. So we decided to take up a worthy initative – reduce heat emission and increase the lifespan of our planet, our CPUs and our GPUs – by reducing the load the game puts on them. It might seem laughable, but as the saying goes – drop, drop, drop … and you have an ocean!

Since we don’t really have a lot of bugs to fix anymore, we focused on optimizing everything we can – also as a learning how we can squeeze maximum from our game engine in our next project.

As a result ---

FPS increased even by up to 35% in certain areas
Build size decreased from 18GB to 10.9GB (!!!)
Loading times have decreased considerably.


If you are interested (I guess mostly fellow developers), we achieved that by:
  • Adding an option to limit FPS between 30 and 265 in Settings
  • Increasing the compression of textures
  • Decreasing the range of shadows rendering
  • Optimizing all music and SFX (compression)
  • Optimizing what is being rendered and what’s not, if objects are outside of view area
  • Turning off reflection probes in real-time
  • Decreasing amount of memory allocated to raycast of particles
  • Decreasing lightning in places where we use forward rendering
  • Adding an option to turn on/turn off anti-aliasing in Settings
OTHER IMPROVEMENTS:
  • Adding missing Days of Old 9 cinematic (damn, that is embarrassing that we lost this one along the way, especially since this is one of the best one we have)
  • Fixed few translations and added few missing ones
  • Fixed Quest Log in Ancient Machine quest
  • Fixed bug when music sometimes did not resume playing after cinematics
  • Fixed volume bar for cinematics (sometimes it stopped working)
  • Removed unlimited teleporting option but added an option to teleport to the beginning of the floor at will (unlimited teleporting could potentially break two quests)

WHAT IS NEXT?

So, we are working in our new project intensively. If you are interested, just click on our name under PUBLISHER next to reviews and follow us. We will announce when we are ready and also plan to have intensive beta testing at some point for multi-player part.



We also are finishing FRENCH localization – should be ready within next 3 weeks or so. We are working on ITALIAN as well, here I cannot give you any estimates yet.

We are also working on console version of Tower of Time for PS, Xbox and Switch.

With the next patch we will also introduce NG++ that will increase difficulty a bit but will allow you to skip the story and play with all champions available since the beginning. You will be able to experiment with really crazy builds. Kaela and Boron will make a short work of this crazy Mimic chest on floor 1.

Hope you will enjoy playing Tower of Time.

Cheers,
Event Horizon team

“Packende Story und interessante Genreanleihen: Insgesamt eine gute Mischung”
83 / 100 – PC Games

“The game might seem to be a little formulaic to veterans of CRPGs but it is not without innovations of its own. For developer Event Horizon, Tower of Time is an astounding entry that gives fans of the CRPG genre something different to sink their teeth into.”
9.0 /10 – God is a Geek

“This has been one of the most enjoyable indie RPG experiences for me so far this year. This is a game I’d at least like to see on a list of contenders for “Indie RPG of the Year”.”
8.5 / 10 – MMORPG

About This Game


Tower of Time is an incredible adventure packed with over 50 hours of gameplay, hand-crafted levels, and a rich story told through cinematics. Taking classic RPG gameplay to the next level, Tower of Time features flexible character development, thousands of pieces of loot and equipment and the complex and tactical Arrow-Time real-time combat system.

Important note: Combat in Tower of Time is different. Each battle is designed like a tactical puzzle. If you want to enjoy combat, you need to pick the difficulty which is adequately challenging to you skill set and adjust it as you progress. On highest difficulty level it is very demanding and requires you to find the synergies between classes, skills and the equipment.

Engaging story of epic proportions

Immerse yourself in a world where technology meets magic with devastating consequences. Gather a group of diverse champions and lead them through the tower. Hundreds of lore books and scattered pieces of information slowly reveal the history of Artara as your party of adventurers approach their fate.


Deep tactical real-time combat with pause or slow-time

Take ultimate strategic control of each battle with the Arrow-Time combat system that slows the action down to a crawl or pauses it. Plan ahead and position your party where you need them for ultimate effect. Use Arrow-Time to react to new threats, deploy devastating new spells and attacks and counter enemy attacks. No two encounters are ever the same. On harder difficulties - look at each battle as a tactical puzzle.


  • 7 Unique character classes, each with different strengths and weaknesses.
  • Complex skill system with two exclusive enhancement trees and multitude of options.
  • Skill Gestures - draw some of the skills as you want.
  • Gravity manipulation – leap large distances to scatter your enemies or draw them in.
  • Rich equipment system.
  • 150 enemies with unique skills and tactics.
  • Face 50 Bosses wielding a diverse range of skills and spells.
  • Five difficulty levels, including Epic difficulty (not recommended for new players).
  • Multiple combat modes ensure that there's plenty of variety and fresh challenges ahead.
  • Travel through hand-crafted levels that have been carefully designed to challenge you.
  • New character progression system.
  • Unique Party Alignment system.
  • Combat Challenges, designed to test your tactical and party-building skills.
  • Crafting, enchanting, legendary items.
  • Upgradeable city.
