Post news RSS [Update] Initial story mode in Arcane Worlds 0.17

This update lays the foundation for the story mode. You can start a new game, generate the universe, explore it, and your progress is saved (the changes to the worlds aren't saved yet though). There's no actual story yet, that'll come in the next updates, adding more interesting things to the universe.

Change log:

  • Initial story mode, universe map and saved games.
  • Configurable controls. Some cheat/developer buttons are still hardcoded though.
  • Added on-screen message when Use Portal and Castle spells do nothing.
  • Changed font to Kaushan Script and improved font rendering.
  • Mana cheat now increases maximum mana as well.
  • Fixed some GUI-related crashes.
  • World map is available in developer mode now (not that anyone but me cares).
Desura Digital Distribution

In other news, Arcane Worlds was greenlit! It'll be available on Steam Early Access in a month or two, and you'll get a Steam key if you already bought the game.


Seems some nice stuff is going in.
There will still be the non steam executable?

Yes, I'll still update it on my site, Desura and other sites. And I'll try to keep it as DRM-free as possible even on Steam.

I really like this game, only problem i see is an extremely small world/maps. It would be awesome to have more space, currently the size is smaller than the viewrange :(
Allinall- really nice game.

The world size is limited by water/lava simulation mostly. I might optimize it for multiple core CPUs later and double the world size.
