    <p>Frayed Knights <a href="http://rampantgames.com/blog/?p=2928" target="_blank">officially achieves beta status</a>.</p>
    <blockquote>
    <p>Now how about a really good question: What the heck does &ldquo;Beta&rdquo; mean?<br /><br />First of all, it&rsquo;s a game status thing. It means that at this point, there are no more big changes. There are no known game-crippling bugs. The game is fully playable from start to finish. All the features are working. There are still bugs, balance issues, a couple of places where we&rsquo;re still using stand-in art, and room to fix things and change things.&nbsp; We&rsquo;re down to only about 100 issues, and only half of them are serious (the others are &ldquo;suggestions&rdquo; or &ldquo;nice to have if we can slip it in&rdquo; changes). We&rsquo;re down to the small things &ndash; small but important. And not always easy. Things like combat feats not always being available for unknown reasons.&nbsp; Or whether dual-wielding needs bigger penalties on attacks or damage to be balanced. Or renaming the &ldquo;Balls!&rdquo; spell to &ldquo;Boot to the Head!&rdquo; to match the visuals better (the boots come in a little high) and beefing it up a little more.&nbsp; Fixing some weapon visuals that don&rsquo;t have their mount point quite right (as you can see in the pic to the right). Placing a few more hidden caches of goodies, and placing some last remaining magical gear as loot. Improving some of the spell visuals. Adding some missing sound effects. Making sure the story &ndash; and game &ndash; as a whole holds together.</p>

    No, you're thinking of Age of Decadence.
