Development Update and Return of Journals

Hi guys, just a quick post that we’re making great progress on lots of new Age of Wonders goodies for you.  The upcoming update should include Steam Workshop support and Cloud Saves. This should make it easier for you to exchange user made scenarios and manage save games across multiple computers.

The tech team is working hard on porting the game to Mac (and likely: Linux).  Already did most of the graphical side of things; the release will likely coincide with an expansion.

Then we’ve got lots new features and content in the works.  The first new race (one with –ling in the name) is nearly complete with others in development. New races are a lot of work: core units, class unit variants, leader and hero assets, City and TC graphics, new abilities, balance, etc). We also have an exotic new dwelling, new monsters, music, classes and a new campaign in the works.  We’re also testing some exciting new mechanics that include new victory conditions and a new type of quest.

Stay tuned, as the Development Journals will return in the near future!

    Careful. Gypsy women don’t take kindly to being held, unless they invite it of course…

    @bloodybattlebrain
    Warcraft has unofficially trademarked Pandas in fantasy.

    I think a larger race no matter what they are (almost at a size with ogres could be cool idea so it would be almost the opposite to the halflings, the balancing could be tricky maybe alot more production time.)

    I doubt it. In the modern races, the Orcs are basically the ‘Big Guys’. As for already existing large races, the Dragons and the Giants were the original inhabitants of Athla, so there’s them. And individual units of the Shadow Demons (and Titans of the Archons) are pretty big as well.

    Which makes me think about the Titans, could be a Half-Archon/Half-Giant, in the same sense that Yeti’s (Frostling), Ogres (Orc) and Trolls (Human) are half-Giants as well?

    One more thing: About the T3 special unit discussion: There is 1 perfectly open place. The Manticore Rider of the Tigrans has alraedy been taken by the Warlord, so they need a new T3 unit, which can make for an interesting one (unless they just use the Sphinx as a T3 unit instead of T4).

    Bit late to reply, but I am willing to bet the new race if Halfling, i.e. hobbits.

    Something witty.

    Well it seems the first time I saw this post I missed a few things. First of all they have specifically mentioned that there is at least going to be one new race with more in development. They specifically use the word others which implies more than one which one can take to mean that alongside the next new race there will be at least two more to follow.

    exotic new dwelling is that referring to a specific land, new type of area (similar to underground, or something like a new terrain to go with a new race?

    hope the development continues going along well and that we get some more information in the coming weeks. thanks for keeping us in the loop so to speak with development journals.

    Dwellings are used to refer to the Monster dwellings (Faerie Ring, Dragon Peak, Archon Tomb, Giants Citadel). So what they mean there is that we have another monster dwelling incoming (Not necessarily of Monsters, though).

    “I am Welcomed in the Home of Ravens and Other Scavengers in the Wake of Warriors, I am Friend to Carrion Crows and Wolves, I am Carry Me, and Kill with Me, and Die with Me Where the Road Ends; I am not the Honeyed Promise of Length of Life in Years to Come, I am the Iron Promise of Never Being a Slave.”
