Avadon 2: The Corruption Previewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment
Leviathyn has posted a new preview of Spiderweb Software's upcoming sequel, Avadon 2: The Corruption. The indie role-playing adventure will return players to the Black Fortress where they will have to decide whether to aid the beleaguered Avadon or assist those attempting to destroy it.
The difficulty is still overall a little easy, at least for the beginning portion of the game. There are more opportunities to participate in quests meant for a higher level though, giving you access to several difficult optional battles. On a more general note, the fights themselves are wholly more interesting. The battles include a range of new mechanics forcing you to employ different strategies such as focusing down lackeys to prevent special moves or risking releasing monsters to fight for your side. The talent system is also mostly the same as before, but there are less requirements to reach the end-tier skills. This means that you can focus on a specific side of the talent tree without having to fill out the entire bottom half.Avadon 2: The Corruption is currently scheduled for a Fall 2013 release.

The fact that you can now choose your gender will definitely be an important feature for some, and there are a full set of character art and portraits for both versions of each class. Speaking of class features, there is also the inclusion of the new Tinkermage class which works out somewhat like a cross between a shadowwalker and a… turret-crafter? You get to place down a variety of different turrets that provide heavy AoE damage as well as some status effects, making him a strong contender for the damage-dealer of your team. As the turrets generally shoot in cones and have a limited range, it also adds to the strategy of a battle as you have to be aware of your placement.

Infinite Space 3: Sea Of Stars Status Update
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
Digital Eel has released a new status update for Infinite Space 3: Sea of Stars, a sequel to Strange Adventures in Infinite Space and Weird Worlds: Return To Infinite Space. In addition to details the game's progress, the update includes a new video. The game will continue the unique sci-fi roguelike style of the originals with the addition of a 3D universe and a variety of new material and gameplay options.
While we have been creating more art and content, I’ve been busy getting actual game systems running under the hood. The universe you explore on the star map is now actually populated with alien empires you can run into and get in fights with. Transitioning between the star map and combat modes now works, although the presentation is still in a rough state. There are some cool systems already operating that will allow the aliens (as well as Terrans) to develop new technologies over time, and upgrade their ships.Check out the links below for more.
Sea Of Stars September Update
The mod editor now includes an editor for the procedural materials that we previously had to edit in script files. This will make it easier to create materials for planets as well as the alien races whose fleets aren’t done yet. Being able to edit the material definitions on the fly allows faster iteration and encourages experimentation.
Our immediate goal is to now produce a playable beta version with reduced content, but all the core gameplay features. Basically, get the game running with the assets we have so we can start collecting feedback from testers including Kickstarter backers in the $25+ tiers. More details to come in the next update!
