Changes in release dates and future plans.

During the alpha test we received a huge amount of feedback and realised that we can make Iratus: Lord of the Dead even better, but this requires the most valuable resource – time. We regret to inform you that the release of Iratus: Lord of the Dead has been delayed and we sincerely hope for your understanding.

We seek to take into account all wishes that we received during the alpha test but polishing the game is also time-consuming.

Our team is actively working on balancing and also making a new content for the third floor. We will begin the beta tentatively in December and we expect to receive a lot more feedback to continue the polishing. The Early Access of Iratus: Lord of the Dead will begin in February 2019 so that everyone will be able to play and help us refine the project.

We apologise for the delay. Devblogs with new content and also devstreams will be organised in the near future. By the way, here's 2 new bosses that you will meet in the dungeon.

The Inventor

One of the chief sponsors of the mining complex beneath the human castle, he thus bears a great deal of responsibility for freeing Iratus from his eternal prison. Not that anyone would dare remind him of this fact, since his keen mind has been deemed invaluable by the Alchemists Guild. After all, few can actually calculate the precise amount of explosive power needed to clear a tunnel without causing a cave-in. But now that he is personally forced to try and salvage this venture, he has turned his great intellect to far more warlike pursuits.

The Pyromancer

Magic is the expression of the soul, as such most wizards practice the kind of powers to aggrandize themselves. Far fewer opt to go down the path of pyromancy, as that demands you set your soul ablaze. Having a reputation for being rather dangerous and unstable, pyromancers are usually kept far away from civilization lest you want to deal with one or two city-wide firestorms. As such they often ply their trade as mercenaries in any company brave enough to take them. Things must be getting desperate if even these fire-eyed spellwielders are called upon to join fight against Iratus.

And also new images for our text events.

You will receive further details soon.

Yours respectfully,
Unfrozen Team

Devblog #7. Preparations for the coming update.

Backers exclusive closed alpha is still ongoing. We are grateful for all the feedback that we have received and it has been a great help for us in our goal of improving the game and making it more fun for you! In addition, we recently announced a new minion on our social networks. Let’s have a look at it!

Lost Soul

A lost soul is a spirit that has been trapped on the mortal plane for so long that they have forgotten what they looked like when they were still alive. Necromancy can accelerate this process, forging these souls into agents of lies and deception. Taught to delight in lies and betrayal, these spirits take on the form of masked women that lure mortals to their doom.

Work Progress

At the moment we are actively working on the animations of previously announced characters. Here's an example of one of the Ghoul’s attacks.

Before the closed alpha launch we released an update with a numerous changes, which were described in the previous devblogs but there was one we missed. The enemy Berserker was reworked. They are battle-hardened warriors that would rather die and be turned into an undead than flee from a fight. So bear this in mind and be ready, since they will often enter a state of destructive rampage.

Right now we are preparing the new update based on the feedback received from the closed alpha test.

Insane enemies often attacks allies and sometimes this would cause them to restore sanity to themselves after landing a critical on their friends. This will no longer happen as it didn’t make much sense to us! ;)

Our Shieldmaidens need some attention too. Currently they can apply a redirect to each other or start protecting the same companion over and over. It gets a bit crazy: the shieldmaidens are certainly having a good time but the player is at a loss. At the moment we are looking to address this issue.

Minions are already a bit tired during the closed alpha but soon they will need much more rest to recover Vigor between battles. The dead need sleep too!

Vampires have proven to be good fighters but bosses have been unreasonably vulnerable to these bloodsuckers. The Vampire ability "Bloody Fury" will continue to take off 33% health from ordinary enemies but its damage will be reduced to 20% against bosses.

Iratus will need more time to examine the artifact “Book of Wisdom” and apply the new knowledge in practice. You will need to equip the book, enter a fight and if you win, the two talent points are yours but if you lose, it wasn't meant to be.

We continue to adjust balance and economy. The beginning of your journey may seem easy but the closer you get to the exit the more complicated things will become.

We will be gradually adding images to our events and we hope it will make them more readable and interesting for our players.

New backgrounds will be added with the upcoming update.

These are the main changes to date. We are happy to answer any questions you might have!

About This Game

Evil Returns, and Its Name is Iratus.

An inversion to the classic heroic tale, Iratus: Lord of the Dead lets players use fallen foes to create fearsome monsters for their personal army.

Brought to you by Unfrozen Studios, a newly formed studio of industry veterans who worked on the games such as the Disciples franchise.

As the eponymous necromancer, Iratus has players take the rein of a reviled mage returning from the void of death. After years of the tedium that comes being dead, Iratus returns to restart his quest of world domination. With bundles of bones, souls and squishy bits, Iratus brings back his army the only way he knows how...
