We are happy to announce the public release of ADOM 1.2.0p5 - one of the slightly older closed prereleases of the ongoing ADOM development due to the success of our crowd funding campaign.
Take this is yet another Christmas gift (after the release of ADOM II 0.3.0 tonight), this time from "Team ADOM" (that is Jochen, Krys, Lucas, Zeno and yours truly). It's the first time that ADOM is driven by an international team (with members from South America to Poland) and advised by the steadfast thousands of loyal fans out there and it's a truly amazing and exciting time for all of us. We are very much looking forward to show you the versions of ADOM brewing in our laboratory but they still need a bit more finish.
In the meantime we thought it appropriate to release one of the older closed prereleases so that some of the annoying bugs out there can be avoided (internally ADOM 1.2.0p7 has been released and p8 is under heavy work and probably will be out before the end of the year to the prerelease testers).
You can find the download here, the changelog describes the changes (although you only get the stuff up to and including p5) and if you enjoy ADOM there is still time to vote for it as Roguelike of the Year 2012 (right side) ;-)
Cheers, peace, love, health, happiness & Merry Christmas
(Jochen, Krys, Lucas, Zeno & Thomas)
P.S.: We probably will be offering a prerelease access program in the New Year. It won't be for free (as that would be totally unfair to the other donors from the crowd funding campaign), it will probably around $40 (somewhat expensive, yeah, but we need to be higher than the $25 required in the crowd funding campaign lest we again might be unfair to the early donors) and it will require Paypal. In return you get access to all prereleases for the remainder of the implementation duration of all the crowd funded features (which will take major parts of next year, too). There will be a couple of public milestone releases but they will be a lot rarer than the somewhat continuous stream of prerelease updates.
