Today the big new free update is live to all players - thanks to all the help from players of the beta!
This release adds some major new game mechanics to spice up your next playthrough.
First are Beliefs
: each class has a belief in some inner or higher power which they can call upon for help. Whether your a wizard bursting a blood vessel or a follower of Odin, when the going gets tough, the tough can call on the the even tougher to keep going. You'll want to experiment with each class and alignment to see what works best for your play style. Some classes have the same belief but note the difference alignments can make. Also work out how much of a good thing is too much...
The second more minor mechanic is Eggs
. You'll need to work out for yourself what uses these have... beyond a tasty cooked breakfast.
This version also includes many small new features, including new items and monsters, and slight tweaks to some of the game imbalances reported over the last year. The underlying engine has also been updated, which re-enables the Cloth physics
last seen in version 1.0. Enjoy the Valkyrie's new hairstyle!
Players with games from the previous 1.2 version can switch back to that version to finish off their games if they've auto-updated.
On a personal note, as the only developer involved in this strange game, I've been extremely humbled by the very positive attitudes of players and the community at large. Without this support, the last year of development and testing would have been a chore instead of the pure pleasure it has been. Thanks!
