Welcome to a quick update to let you all know where the project stands right now. wave.gif

Progress has picked up considerably over the past month or two. A bunch of bugs have been squashed, the code has been cleaned up considerably, and the overall attitude toward finishing up this game has picked up. We all know that this game has been a long time coming, but we are truly making a push to get a beta out ASAP. We have limited the number of tasks left to complete so that we can get a beta release out; however, we will, of course, remain hard at work after the beta is released in order to implement many of the new features we have been working on. Even though we have discussed and worked on many new features and re-balancing issues, we do not want to include any incomplete features in the beta release. This means that the beta and the final game will be drastically different...in a good way. smile.gif

The last couple of updates have shown off the beautiful monster art that you will see in the game. This can only mean thing: it must be time to present some spectacular item art. One of my favorite class of items in the game is the Rods, mainly because the art for each rod is very creative. The art for the Rod of Passage exemplifies the type of humor you will see throughout the game, so this one felt appropriate to show. Enjoy!


Lightning Blade
Cap of Death
Helm of Ishtaria
Girdle of Might
Rod of Passage
Potion of Flight


We hope you enjoyed this brief update. Thank you to all of you who continue to patiently wait for us to deliver this product to you. It will be worth the wait! happy.gif

P.S. I like surprises. You can see the excitement in my face.

Hurray! Keep up the good work. I like how the "Rod of Passage" is a stick of chalk. (Though the "Cap of Death" looks a little... cheesy? dntknw.gif )

laugh.gif a stick of chalk, yup that's a rod of passage alright.

the potion of flight,,,, i really like the rock ok.gif but where's the lid to keep it from floating away?

the cap of cheez.. i mean the cap of death, would it not have been better to have like,, a few nails sticking out of it? then it would be like saying "hit me on the head and i'll die with a smile! ok.gif " the heads of the nails (4-5?) could be skulls but that's just my 2 cents on it


overall great job on the art yahoo.gif

Wow, I've been checking this site at least biweekly since I found it and that was well over a year ago now.

Great to finally see something and mainly to hear that it's getting there. Really looking forward to the beta of this. The Rod of Passage looks brilliant.

Been forever since I checked up on here, but I'm really glad to see the Beta's almost ready for release! I'm just putting together a new desktop too, somehow it seems appropriate for me to go back to a game like Mordor on it tongue.gif.

Excellent. It's only so often that I think to check for updates, but the frequency of my memory has no correlation with the depths of my excitement.

Can't wait to get my hands on it and try to find every little bug. Err, I mean, treasure. Keep up the good work, and prepare to be inundated once something playable does get out there.
