24/1/2012 devblog entry, this time discussing the fact I'm pretty much redoing the creature system from scratch. It should be much more dynamic, changeable, sophisticated, and (importantly) realistic. Enjoy!

Thanks! I know it is pretty ambitious - I've all but resigned myself to this being a major life-project for the foreseeable future Smiley

New devblog entry about resistances, poison, climate and breaking your neck falling down the stairs. But mainly resistances. I'd be very interested to hear from any roguelike players about their thoughts on resistances, and the only two I've decided to put in the game:

New devblog entry! In it, I talk all about BLOOD in Ultima Ratio Regum. Do you like blood, or know somebody who does? If so, I'd read it. Enjoy!

This week's devblog; name generation, and the millions of possibilities it provides. Some great dwarf names and elf ones, but I think the human names might need a little work... thoughts?

New devblog entry on SUPERWEAPONS!

But... since URR isn't set in an era where 'superweapons' exist, they're a bit different.

A (delayed) devblog entry - a consultation on speed, strategy, and balancing gameplay. Any ideas would be great!

A nice little bit of medieval myth and URR game design:

Well, we now have a development plan. Give me a shout if there's anything you think should/shouldn't be there for the first alpha! http://www.ultimaratioregum.co.uk/game/2012/05/14/a-cunning-plan/

Font sizes, customizing, the options menu, and even implied support for Dvorak. What more could you want?

Following on from the large roguelike units, we now have units 'facing' a certain direction. Whatever next?!

Well, here's the longest development blog entry to date, including a ton of stuff on trees, climbing, combat, and that donate button people seem to want (with a massive disclaimer Smiley ). I quite liked doing a longer blog entry after a fortnight rather than a weekly one - what do people think? Anyway, enjoy, spread the word, etc!

Just chiming in to say I've been following this since last month and am massively hyped. Good luck getting the alpha out!
