Chapter V Goes Public & New Patron Builds!

We are very proud to announce the public release of our latest chapter: Mar'Liore.
This build has been many months in development--longer than the average chapter as a consequence of numerous time-consuming system updates and overhauls, particularly the quest log.

Mar'Liore also features some of our most complicated and divergent quests to date, branching off multiple times to accommodate the different decisions our players make along the way.

In addition to the new public build, of course, we are also releasing the latest patron builds, which introduces some of our new or revised illustrations and gets the ball rolling in chapter VI.

We hope everyone enjoys, and we hope you'll join us in our brand new Discord channel: 

 Version 0.46 - 8/17/2018 - Art Patch

Weekly Build V.0.44

Hi folks!

Between all the grappling with Patreon's soul-crushing card fiasco, I've also been working on the latest build, version 0.44!

Some of the coolest and deadliest enemies yet make their debut, and there's an exciting new segment playable upon reaching the cove after returning from Mar'Liore.

For the first time ever, I'll also be making a new weekly patron post with the weekly builds permanently accessible instead of sending them out via PM, so stay tuned for that soon!

Version 0.44 - 8/3/2018

Added Carlisse ShowdownAdded new playable Marlan SegmentFixed a couple of image overlay inconsistenciesFixed a couple of BGS volume issues when transferring locationsChanged slip damage (poison, shred, burn, etc.) to allow knockoutFixed an issue where weapon proficiency wasn’t correctly showing in the status menuUpdated weapon proficiencies to add 0.3 accuracy and 0.2 crit per levelRevised Low Tide to steal slightly less MP than before

Weekly Update V.0.43!

New week, new build! Come and get it, fresh off the video game assembly line.

This week's release pretty much wraps up chapter 5, somewhat astonishingly. It'll be a couple more weeks before the chapter goes public, but our non-patron friends will have something to look forward to in the month of August. Non-patrons can try the public build at!

This was another tricky chapter, similar to Witchdale, because there were several branching options for how it resolved, and the quest journal only adds another level of complexity to the whole thing. But it's 99% wrapped up, which feels good.

Chapter 6 will take us to a couple of places more familiar, which will be cool. Don't want to spoil too much just yet, so just hang in there.

I'm also personally working on the art for another scene as we did a poll and I came out as the (surprise) winner but I have to sneak in time for my art here and there or I'll never get any work done on …

Weekly Build V. 0.42!

Version: Life, the Universe, and Everything

Good evening! I will keep this short and sweet, since the patch notes are LONG and SAVORY.
Managed to get a lot of work done this week, including many relatively major system updates and changes. The notes will speak for themselves, mostly, but I will say that, being still fresh, you can expect some more fine-tuning and balance adjustments to come from these systems.

Also, I fixed an embarrassingly large amount of bugs from version 0.41. Oops! I can't believe nobody either found them or said anything.

Other than that, hope you enjoy!

Version 0.42 - 7/20/2018

 Added many new menu options, including vsync, window colors, & keyboard configuration Added an in-combat status menu to provide more details about status afflictions Added a description to every status effect Advanced the Mar’Liore narrative Improved on-map enemy AI Attacking an on-map enemy’s back will result in a preemptive strike Being back-attacked by a chasing enemy will resu…

Weekly Build: V. 0.41!

Hello! Got a fun little build uploading this week with some cool new cutscenes and some awesome scene art. There's also a new alpha build ready to send out to our alpha patrons.

A TON of time was dumped into a couple of very short scenes, but that's game dev life, haha. I'm starting to really love the characters of Leite and Gorps, and I hope you do as well.

Without further ado:

Weekly build: Version 0.40!

The Big 4-0 Hey everyone. We did it! We somehow managed to survive until the 40th weekly release of DoE. Some days I'm not sure where the time has gone! Other nights... like tonight... it has felt like the passing of ten-thousand years. But the march continues ever forward, and I'm here to present the notes for our latest and greatest. As always, thanks for playing, and we hope you have fun. Nym Version 0.40 - 7/6/2018
