A small plug for a good friend.
Release date: Christmas 2013

If you're just having a quick look, here are the key things that make this game what it is:

- An open-ended, procedurally generated, infinite, persistent world
- The largest first-person roguelike ever created!
- Inspired by RPG classics such as Might & Magic, Wizardry and Dungeon Master
- The world is filled with an infinite number dungeons, crypts, forests, cities, vast oceans and more
- Though infinite, the world is NOT randomly generated, so you can return to anywhere you've been!
- Items, weapons, quests, locations, maps, NPCs, even dialogue are generated procedurally by the game
- Even some graphics such as weapon images are generated procedurally for millions of combinations!

Still here? Awesome!

Malevolence: The Sword of Ahkranox is a first person Roguelike RPG for the PC aimed at all those fans of old-school RPG gaming. The movement is grid-based, but also turn-based, bringing back that old strategising element of games such as Might & Magic.

There are an infinite number of items and weapons and armor to find, and an infinite number of quests to go on, however, the aim of this game's existence isn't to have a game you can play forever, but instead to create an RPG roguelike experience that you can play for as long or as little as you want, and always have new people, places and loot to find.

Best of all, the in-game world is also persistent, so if you find something cool, you can share its location with your friends and they'll be able to find it, too, and any place that you find can be visited again by you or anyone else told where to find it.

Haha, no problem @CumQuaT, I just like to make sure people know if they are looking at this page and wondering if it was ever released. :)

Eek. This is my first game out, so I wasn't sure I had to! Sorry everyone!

The game has been released on Steam, everyone! The developer just never updated this page to redirect to it.

The long years of waiting for steam release is at end! Huzzah!

Also, we're hoping to go live this week - depending on how long Valve takes to approve the build.

The Steam build actually takes care of all that :) The installer is all handled via Steam itself, so it's nice and neat!

I will buy when it has a self-extractor that sets up game without a headache. It looks good to me but I want to be able to buy, install, play without figuring out how to 'tweak' my system to do so.... any idea when that will be a reality?

I've been playing off and on since the first beta sent to Kickstarter backers. I've had a ton of fun and it reminds me of the (good) pain of early Apple II RPGs.

Thank you, Exalic! As an indie dev it means a great deal to hear that from you!
