ADOM 3.1.3 available as a public Steam release

Hi everyone!

We are happy to announce ADOM 3.1.3 as a public (not beta!) release on Steam. ADOM 3.1.3 contains another big package of bug fixes and minor improvements and concludes the "ADOM 3.1.x talents & traps" release (unless we somehow managed to introduce new serious bugs). The changelog as usual contains all the details. If you did not try any of the betas you should browse all the changes starting with version 3.1.0 - quite a lot has happened!

We already are working on ADOM 3.2.0 which will contain the personalized PC sprites as its major feature (e.g. correct hair and eye colors as well as much closer matching equipment). We expect a mid-April release for that.

So for now enjoy the latest version on Steam - it should update automatically (but remember to deactivate your beta mode if you participated in that).

Happy Easter and Happy Hacking!
Thomas Biskup & Team ADOM

P.S.: Work on Ultimate #ADOM also is progressing. We just spent roughly 27 hours on two workshop days with the European part of Team Ultimate ADOM to finalize our PoC phase and make many decisions (as well as raise new questions regarding optimizations to game play). I'm by now hopefully settled enough with out daughter so that I can resume regular blogging :-) Despite the social silence on this front we are progressing well with the plans for our first games under the "Ultimate ADOM" brand - more to come soon!

Here's a picture of our team meeting (although our marketing guy is missing on it):

ADOM 3.1.2 available as Steam beta

Hi everyone!

Directly on the heels of yesterdays ADOM 3.1.1 release follows today ADOM 3.1.2 with yet another bunch of bug fixes, some of them sadly introduced by yesterdays release (two crash bugs among them).

The quick next release is a testament of how well releasing works on Steam (it's a breeze compared to  what we need to do to publish a more general public release - so the latter in the future will be less common than Steam releases). The quick next release also is a testament of how my new-born daughters causes me to botch my concentration skill checks... some of the bugs are a bit shameful ;-)

Give me some more time to get accomodated to our new life - while it's fun, it's quite challenging, too.

Without further ado here we go with the latest ADOM release on Steam:

Happy hacking!

ADOM 3.1.1 available as Steam beta

Hi everyone!

We just released ADOM 3.1.1 (release 90 - #100, we are coming!). ADOM 3.1.1 is a bug fix release for our "Talent & Traps" 3.1.0 release featuring the revised talent system and a revised trap damage system (that now should work much better than in the previous version).

You can find the full release notes in the usual place.

This page contains the instructions for activating ADOM 3.1.1 as a beta version on Steam.

Happy hacking!
Thomas & Team ADOM
