- "How did you come up with the idea behind the game?"
- "Why the name "Aeon of Sands"? "
- "What sort of creatures can we expect and which creature really stands out in design?"
- and much more!

Also, TWO new videos for a total 6 minutes of footage, showcasing AoS new magic system, travelling, and our dialogue system!

Thanks!

This was indeed our aim, to create a non-Tolkien setting ;-)! More Mad Max bad guys, less Orcs or Elves.

We just released a new large patch, aiming to make combat more challenging (specially at hard level) and, overall, fun, with improvements to boss fights and range combat (and much more)!

The announcement and patch notes:

During the Steam Winter Sale, Aeon of Sands, a game that inhabited the 2010's at length, is being ushered out for good with the terminal discount of 75% off, to welcome a new decade!

https://store.steampowered.com/app/907820/Aeon_of_Sands__The_Trail/

I look forward to see in what new or retrofitted ways we'll misuse the new decade, but I hope it will be at least interesting.
Happy new decade TIGSource!

Aeon of Sands is one and half years old, and today reaches v1.5!

https://store.steampowered.com/app/907820/Aeon_of_Sands__The_Trail/



If you've finished the game at least once by reaching one of the three possible endings and start the game all over again, you can now choose  to skip the Tutorial Dungeon (the Underroots) and start the adventure with NEW companions Tula and Kturim!

They speak little or not at all, but they open up new ways to face exploration and combat!

Tula and Kturim come with a special item each; having it equipped or idle in the backpack switches between normal and experimental combat modes.

Tula, a smart and resilient scavenger, can use her technical savvy to trick magic out of the elements. So did her ancestors in forgotten times, at the enormous price of their own health (they did disappear for a reason...)

But Tula can also do without it, and become a formidable ranged warrior instead.

Kturim, a wise Berserk warrior, can summon the power of his lost civilization, through a stony scepter of old, to attack from afar the desert creatures that would eat him whole.
Or he can lay down this scepter and stand before Setrani as a veritable shield.
This works even better when he is armed, you know.

Oh, and btw, Aeon of Sands is now on 20% discount on Steam during Summer Sale!
