MEMORIES, MEMORIES...

Hi all! Yesterday I was looking out for some good screenshots for our coming game:

https://store.steampowered.com/app/832770/Age_of_Fear_The_Undead_King_GOLD/

I have found a couple of old screenshots from 2011/2012 when the Age of Fear was released for the first time:




To compare, those are the same levels in 2019 after numerous iterations:



Huge difference, huh?

All this progress would not have been possible without our awesome community!! You guys are simply the best.

UPDATE RELEASED!! (v5.8.2)



Hi all!

there hasn’t been a feature update for a while and I thought we needed one considering the number of changes in the last weeks so here it goes.



CHANGE LOG:
  • NEW: Cooldown counter displayed on icon - that was added literally yesterday. It should help with planning spell chains.


  • NEW: Adding icons to all selection options in all games - a small touch, but those dialogs look better.

  • NEW: Floating units can pass over allies.

  • NEW:Vampires can change into Vampire Bats and float over enemies! Be aware, the Vampire Bats are much easier to shot down than Vampires.

  • UPDATE: Naming of AI teams uses original names (e.g. Black Knight) if no name bundle is found. The result will not be “AI Player xxx” anymore.

  • UPDATE: A number of portraits were updated, for example unicorns:



  • UPDATE: Possessed units won’t trigger Team Morale penalties and also won’t desert.

  • UPDATE: Polymorph spell - weak units are changed into Chicken (just to add variety).

  • UPDATE: AI placement logic updated (it should be less prone to deploying ranged units before melee).

  • BALANCE: AI Team Size and Gold has a minimum baseline (based on game-progress).

  • BALANCE: Heros’ items are added to army power when computing AI power in random battles.

  • BALANCE: Precision / Shield Breaker is less effective vs. experienced opponents, i.e. Defence’s limits are increased by 1 per enemy’s upgrade level.

ONGOING FEATURES:

  • ONGOING: The Undead King Gold is a greatly expanded version of the series' very first entry, a game originally released seven years ago. This project aims to bring Age of Fear series into the Open World theme! The work has entered the Beta-test phase a while ago and we plan a release for early June 2019.
    https://store.steampowered.com/app/832770/Age_of_Fear_The_Undead_King_GOLD/

  • ONGOING: The Free World Workshop Manager - following the success of the Age of Fear: The Free World (25,000 downloads!), we plan to backport the Workshop Manager into this product as well. It requires some preparatory work and we plan it for mid-2019.

  • ONGOING: The Free World Extension - we are currently editing campaign for the remaining faction: Forest Folk. The extension release will be synchronised with the Workshop Manager.

  • ONGOING: The Global Events Extension - we have 40+ additional Global Events scheduled and being worked on. Those events will introduce side-quests.

  • ONGOING: Faction Bases which can be upgraded as you explore the Age of Fear world. Investing in base upgrades will unlock additional recruitable units, skills and locations to explore! This feature will be released first in The Undead King Gold and then we will add it to other games in the series.

  • ONGOING: Invisibility mechanics are already coded in, but require more testing to make AI aware of this feature. Invisibility will add an element of surprise to battles and mess up your tactics! Prepare for the unexpected!

  • ONGOING: Unit Voices are currently being re-recorded. There are 80+ voice-bundles and we have about 30% ready. ETA for this update is mid-2019 and hopefully this improvement will be well received!

  • ONGOING: Localization is coming too! We have started with French (thanks to targus929!), but once this update is stable we will look into other languages.

  • ONGOING: Desert Battles - we have already drawn a number of new terrains and themed objects like Giant Scorpion, Djinn, Cactuses, etc. Those will be added to existing environments.

  • ONGOING: The Age of Fear 4 - the main story is already written and we are working on scripts and game flows. The release is planned for 2020 and we will surely push out more news before that.

FEATURE LIST

HEX-FREE BATTLES - test your tactics with a novel movement system where size matters and units aren't constrained by artificial grids!

OPEN WORLD - are you bored with the main storyline? No worries, you can always take a side-quest or play procedurally-generated battles. Play this game as you want!

GLOBAL EVENTS that occur while exploring the World Map, à la Battle Brothers. This feature is still being developed and could serve to provide more lore and fun unit interactions conditional on the player's party!

FACTION BASES which can be upgraded as you explore the Age of Fear world. Investing in base upgrades will unlock additional recruitable units, skills and locations to explore!

ALIGNMENTS such as Evil and Holy. This feature has already been introduced into the Age of Fear series but requires more work to be equally impactful across both of Age of Fear: The Undead King GOLD's campaigns.

EXTENDED STORY including Krill's visions, alternative endings, more detailed lore, etc.

FREQUENTLY UPDATED - we take our work seriously and patch our games often with new features and content. Also, whenever possible, those updates are back-ported to all our previous games!

PARTY CUSTOMIZATION - build and upgrade a custom army from more than two hundred unique units, skills and spells (but be aware of racial animosities!).

DEEP BATTLE MECHANICS - learn the basics in a hurry, then develop new strategies around a huge variety skills, spells and battle hazards like neutral factions and environmental effects (yes, you can anger bystanders!).

EASY TO MOD - create your own missions, or even full-fledged campaigns, to be shared with the Steam community!

FANTASY STORYTELLING - get wrapped up in two separate storylines featuring a motley crew of characters, globetrotting adventures and fantasy shenanigans galore. All hand-illustrated!

PERMANENT DEATH - accept the grim realities of death where all units that fall in battle stay dead... unless an evil Necromancer raises them as Zombies.

ARTEFACTS AND RELICS - discover numerous unique weapons, armours, potions and treasures, with the rarest granting powerful OP skills and stat bonuses.

ADVANCED AI - our AI is built upon a self-organizing network of agents and meta-heuristics algorithms (yes, we are PhD-smart!). Discover one of the most sophisticated AI systems you've ever played against!

LOW HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS - run the game even on that old potato laptop of yours. Your stone-age computer is good enough!
