Hi everyone!

After we skipped the announcement for ADOM 3.2.1 (because it contained only cosmetical bug fixes) we just released ADOM 3.2.2 as the latest public version.

ADOM 3.2.x thus leaves the beta status and we hereby declare it stable.

ADOM 3.2.2 again doesn't offer any major content updates - but we had to adjust it to the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which takes full effect on the 25th of May. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_Data_Protection_Regulation for the dirty details.

It took us lots of effort to take everything into account and your data won't be any safer despite all the work because we always cared for your data and didn't abuse it in any evil way. But now there's a lot more documentation and legal text.

The most important game-related change is that - if you registered for our global highscore server at http://www.rogueleague.org (which we highly recommend and which soon will be getting a boost) - you will once more have to read and accept the terms of use.

You also can choose to decline them but the you no longer will be allowed to upload your highscores to the global highscore.

The release cycle for this release has been filled with extremely boring and brain-numbing work because GDPR - despite its good intentions - is a nightmare of cluttered, chaotic and not very well-thought out bureacratic heap of regulation. But so be it. We now are compliant and finally can move forward creating real value.

Unless the next stupid EU regulation destroys productivity.

As you can see I am a bit pissed off about this monstrosity.

Please continue enjoying ADOM and sorry once more for not having new content to offer - we spent so many hours on this abomination that there was no room for content.

The next release will be much better in that respect - promise!

The update will be running automatically and if you still are running on the beta program, here you can find the instructions on how to turn off beta: https://www.ancientdomainsofmystery.com/p/adom-beta-steam.html

Kind regards

Hi everyone!

We are proud to announce the release of ADOM 3.2.0 (release 95) as a Steam beta version. You can read the details in this blog post (as well as the instructions on how to activate it): http://www.ancientdomainsofmystery.com/2018/05/adom-320-released-as-steam-beta.html

The major new feature is a high individualization level for the PC sprite depicting hair color, weapons, armor, etc. There is still a ton of detail we are going to add over time but we highly enjoy this feature already now :-)

Please try it and let us know what you think. Bug reports as usually perferrably bia http://www.adom.de/bugs

Hi everyone!

While we are working on ADOM 3.2.0 we decided to do one more release in the 3.1.x line fixing another important crash bug related to to altars not being found when switching a level. Another (minor) bug fix relates to skill improvements on very high character levels (so it probably would not have affected 99% of all players and was only a visual problem anyways). Nonetheless ADOM 3.1.5 fixes these two problems and will be installed automatically on your system.

Here you find the details: http://www.adom.de/home/changelog.html

Enjoy playing!

Hi everyone!

We just released ADOM 3.1.4 to Steam. This became necessary due to a nasty bug we introduced in ADOM 3.1.3 which seems to have wrecked havoc upon our various screens.

As all Team ADOM members are on Easter vacation we were in quite a hurry to get his fixed.

I apologize for introducing this bug - that's what you get for doing a release before going on vacation (which is something that every experienced IT person knows you never should do - but I didn't want to keep you waiting for another two weeks and thus pushed my colleagues).

Sorry for that and all the inconveniences once more.

ADOM 3.1.4 should fix that problem. It contains no other changes.

If for some reason there is yet another critical problem please message me directly on Twitter at my @adom_dev handle - that's the best way to get me during the vacation.

ADOM 3.1.4 will download automatically on Steam and you should be able to enjoy your games once more.

Happy Easter & all the best!

You can find more details in the blog announcement:

http://www.ancientdomainsofmystery.com/2018/03/adom-313-available-as-public-steam.html

We already are working on "ADOM 3.2.0: Personalized PC" that will finally will show the correct appearance for your PC (eye & hair colors, equipment and such) and contain another ton of other improvements. We plan the ADOM 3.2.x release for mid-April.

And now: Happy Easter & Happy Hacking!

Hi everyone!

Again quickly on the heels of our 3.1.1 beta release follows the ADOM 3.1.2 beta release.

If you already are using the beta branch, it will be updated automatically. Otherwise you should follow the instructions in http://www.ancientdomainsofmystery.com/p/adom-beta-steam.html should you want to test it.

ADOM 3.1.2 again fixes a number of important bugs in the last release and fine tunes some other game aspects.

You can find the full announcement here:
http://www.ancientdomainsofmystery.com/2018/03/adom-312-available-as-steam-beta.html

I expect probably one more beta release before the 3.1.x ADOM branch will become the stable standard for Steam.

And now: happy hacking!
Thomas & Team ADOM

P.S.: Our newborn daughter still is taking a toll on my concentration skill - I announced ADOM 3.1.2 everywhere but here. *Sigh*

Hi everyone!

On the heels of our 3.1.0 beta release follows the ADOM 3.1.1 beta release.

If you already are using the beta branch, it will be updated automatically. Otherwise you should follow the instructions in http://www.ancientdomainsofmystery.com/p/adom-beta-steam.html should you want to test it.

ADOM 3.1.1 finally fixes our "trap fix" (they got deadlier instead of less deadly) and adds a lot of other bug fixes.

You can find the full announcement here:
http://www.ancientdomainsofmystery.com/2018/03/adom-311-available-as-steam-beta.html

And now: happy hacking!
Thomas & Team ADOM

P.S.: Sorry for taking so long to get the next bugfix up but our newborn daughter still is taking a certain toll on my schedules and I'm still in the process of accomodating to that ;-)

Hi everyone!

Starting now you can try out ADOM 3.1.0 as a beta version here on Steam.

ADOM 3.1.0 comes with a greatly revised talent system that should make talent choices a lot more interesting (and hard due to more competing & compelling abilities).

Additionally we have revised the internal trap mechanisms to lower instant death situations and replace them with more exciting challenges.

And there is an extensive list of minor enhancements and bug fixes, fully available here: http://www.adom.de/home/changelog.html

This link explains how to activate the beta version: http://www.ancientdomainsofmystery.com/p/adom-beta-steam.html

The following blog post contains all the details about the changes in 3.1.0 beta: http://www.ancientdomainsofmystery.com/2018/02/adom-310-available-as-steam-beta-and.html

Please note that 3.1.0 still is beta - their might be bugs or other problems. Only try it if you feel adventurous! So far no serious bugs have been reported so we feel pretty good about the release.

As soon as we have ironed out any remaining oversights we will release this as a general public version (without the beta status).

The next major release after this one finally will tackle customized PC sprites showing your equipped items, etc. In our internal version this already is working quite decently but we need to work out some more kinks before we can release ADOM 3.2.0 with this exciting feature.

Stay tuned and have fun in the meantime!

ADOM

Ancient Domains of Mystery – ADOM, to its friends – has been kicking around for a good long while. A complex and traditional roguelike in the vein of Nethack, where everything seems to interact with everything else on some level, and death seems inevitable without extensive trial and error.

The past few years have been treating this old workhorse well. While traditionally freeware, it returned to full development thanks to sales of a Deluxe edition of the game via Steam, and a crowdfunding drive, giving paying players access to new builds early. Now a major new update for the game has just rolled out for everyone, bringing all players free and paid alike up to the same point.

A Happy New Year to everyone!

May 2018 become your best year ever full of health, love, happiness and success!

Oh, and we just released ADOM 3.0.6 most importantly fixing a minor bug with challenge mode: http://www.ancientdomainsofmystery.com/2018/01/happy-new-year-and-adom-306-on-steam.html

The update will be installed automatically.

Enjoy!
