Barony releasing on Steam June 23rd
Barony v1.0.3
Description
Release date: Second Quarter 2015
What is Barony?

Imagine if you could mix all of the pixelly, intricate detail of classics such as Ultima Underworld, Daggerfall, and System Shock together. Now combine that with the unforgiving brutality of roguelikes such as Nethack, ADOM, and more recently, Spelunky. Finally, top everything off with full cooperative multiplayer, and you have Barony.

Buy Barony

Even though we are still in the midst of our greenlight campaign, you can already buy Barony from our website at:

http://www.baronygame.com/

This version of Barony isn't perfect or bug-free, but it is "complete" by most meanings of the word and labelled 1.0 for a reason. By that, I mean that it has a beginning, a middle, and an end, and it is VERY playable. So while we will certainly add new features and fixes to the game over the coming months, we wouldn't really call the game "early access" at this point.

Anyway... thanks for your interest!

The Story So Far

Barony tells the story of an undead lich named Baron Herx, who terrorized the town of Hamlet in a previous life and is now holding out in a vast subterranean complex known as the Devil's Bastion. As a single hero or a group of adventurers, it is your mission to descend the depths of his abode, confront him in his hellish lair, and destroy him forever. Whether you will simply meet your doom in the dungeons as many have before you or rise to victory against the Baron and his hellspawn is ultimately up to you.

Features

  • Gameplay inspired by RPG classics like Ultima Underworld, System Shock, & Daggerfall
  • Roguelike mechanics such as perma-death, random dungeons, cryptic messages, and more
  • Meticulously narrated action that mimics the insane events one could expect to find in games like Nethack
  • A complex yet intuitive drag & drop interface to manage items and character stats
  • Cooperative multiplayer for up to 4 players over internet or LAN
  • Hundreds of unique collectible items and loot, including several rare and mystical artifacts
  • Chock-full of secret areas, special levels, developer easter eggs, and more
  • Bundled level editor, exposed assets, and simple file formats for easy hacking, modding & tinkering

A simple looking role playing game which has a lot more to it than you would initially think.

It’s a nice blend of retro visuals, RPG and Roguelike gameplay that’s good fun on your own and great fun with friends.

I Love Barony, but there are two rather persistent problems ~
