A test build containing many changes and mechanics from Dungeon Rats, a party-based RPG set in the Age of Decadence, is now available, should you wish to give it a try.

To access the test build, right click on the game in your Steam library, select Properties, click on Betas tab. If it’s set on “None - Opt out of all beta programs”, change it to Test – Private Testing Branch.

Enter the Access Code (‘blacksheepwall’), click on Check Code, and wait for Steam to download the files.

We've tested the build and so far everything *appears* to be working correctly, but there were quite a few changes to the scripts so it's possible that we failed to detect something.

We'll continue testing for another week or so. You can either try the build now or wait until it's released officially.

Soon indeed.

The Final Update

This update transfers all applicable changes and improvements from Dungeon Rats, our combat-focused, party-based spin-off set the AoD world.

While the changes are too numerous (and in many cases too minor) to list, here is an overview:
  • Overhead combat info
  • New passive for axes
  • Mouse cursor shows enemies' HPs
  • Expanded info on weapon types
  • THC, CS and ADC stats on area of effect attacks.
  • Tweaked CS formula for aimed strikes.
  • Ranged weapons use Perception for aimed: arms and legs attacks
  • Whirldwind effect for daggers, swords and 1h spears is bleeding instead of knockdown; higher chance to score.
  • Bombs: increased damage and vsDR bonus; the center of explosion does more damage and increases critical strike chance by 50% (goes down with every tile). CON is more effective. 25 + Center of Explosion Bonus - (Victim CON-6) x25; better visuals and sound.
  • The Crafting screen now separates schematics by weapon type and armor material and orders them alphabetically.
  • You can now select techniques without the required materials, to preview the bonuses.

No further content or mechanics updates are planned at this point. All translations are now up to-date as well. We'd like to thank you for your support and willingness to try different games.

While our next full-scale RPG is still in the early stages, your feedback will be more than welcome:

Well, if a problem is reported, we'll definitely fix it, but the content and mechanics are final.

Age of Decadence is being recommended as a great way to deal with August depression:
https://kulturalnemedia.pl/ciekawostki/gry/alternatywne-gry-na-wakacyjna-depreche/

Age of Decadence is an atmospheric and intricate role-playing RPG. However, the story is simple - centuries ago the Empire (modeled on ancient Rome) was swept away from the surface of the earth as a result of war and mysterious catastrophe. The post-apocalyptic world has become a deformed habitat of betrayal, religious fanaticism, and arguing organizations.

It is just a wee spot, but hey, a front page spot!

What is it about and why is it more than 2 years late?

Sad news guys.

I won't be able to promote ITS at the "famous" site RPGFrance, as I already told Vince. After a serious shitstorm, I've been expelled from there. I asked them to erase all my posts (including those concerning ITS), but I doubt they will answer my request.
Fortunatly, former members moved to an emerging site (Loutrage.fr), and in a few time, the site be will ready to promote ITS there. Time for me to turn over a new leaf.

Stay assured it won't have any impact of the AoD's French translation on which I'm working.
