We are proud to announce ADOM Release 51 (version 1.9.0). Here's the change log. This release still is work in progress as we are trying very hard to get ADOM ready for Steam (it would be a shame to miss Christmas time on Steam). Sadly there is still a ton of stuff to be done (and tax questions regarding the crowd funding campaign from the German tax offices don't really simplify my life...).
Nonetheless this will give you a first impression of the new graphical character creation sequence, he new challenge of the week game mode (I even created a forum to discuss challenge of the week games), the awesome customization options for your personalized game (difficulty levels, RPG mode and much more) and many more details. Especially in the graphical mode. Just try it and enjoy.
Edit: RPG mode does not yet work correctly. Trying to save the game and continue playing will crash it. Sorry for the oversight. R52 will fix it.
Here are some teasers:
The start screen with some more refinements (and animations this picture doesn't show):
The main menu with context explanations...
The character creation menu with all the gameplay options (and there are more to come with some shortcut commands):
The results of star sign selection (the actual selection animation is way awesome):
Part of the graphical character creation process... when hovering over a profession (or race) you'll see to the right what your character would look like:
New details during game play... notice something?
And there's so much more. As usual we love to receive feedback and now will try to hurry the Steam release along.
If you are not yet a member of the prerelease testing circle, become one :-)
And now enjoy!
