    Exclamation New RPG - The Age of Decadence

    I don't usually post games that doesn't yet have a GNU/Linux clients, but this RPG game has a very high probability on having a GNU/Linux and Mac clients in the near future (when or after it will be released) as this game uses the Torque engine which is supported on GNU/Linux and Mac.

    A little about the game :

    The Age of Decadence is an isometric, turn-based, single-player 3D role-playing game set in a low magic, post-apocalyptic fantasy world, inspired by the fall of the Roman Empire. The game features a detailed skill-based character system, non-linear gameplay, multiple skill-based ways to handle quests, choices & consequences, and extensive dialogue trees.

    Highlights:

    7 distinctive gameplay styles: from knight, serving a Noble House to grifter, preying on greed and gullibility.

    23 skills, ranging from Dagger and Critical Strike to Disguise and Persuasion to Crafting and Lore.

    Action Point-based combat system, featuring a flexible set of standard attacks, special attacks such as whirlwind and impale, and aimed attacks at different body parts.

    8 weapon types: daggers, swords, axes, hammers, spears, bows, crossbows, throwing weapons, each with individual traits.

    Non-combat quests resolutions and a well-developed diplomatic path ( "The best weapon against an enemy is another enemy." )

    Over 100 quests, taking you to 22 locations: towns, outposts, archeological digs, sealed places of Power, underground facilities, and temples.

    Each situation has multiple ways of handling it, based on your skills, reputation, and connections. Each way has consequences that will affect someone or something.

    Extensive dialogues trees, written with role-playing in mind. You can use many skills in dialogues, take actions like stealing or sneak-attacking, and play your character with personality as you see fit.

    An interesting world with rich history and unclear future that your actions can shape into seven very different game endings.

    Detailed crafting and alchemy systems: melt items and create new ones, balance your sword, play with Greek fire, increase your poison's potency, use corrosive acid on locks, and experiment with black powder.

    Hundreds of items, ranging from weapons & armor to scrolls, tools, flasks, and pre-war relics.

    3D world created with Torque Game Engine, featuring detailed locations and almost 200 unique animations.

    REMEMBER THAT A GNU/LINUX CLIENT IS STILL UNCONFIRMED FOR THIS GAME - I WILL UPDATE YOU AS SOON AS THERE WILL BE A CONFIRMATION ON THE MATTER.

    This is going to be great, the people behind it are true rpgers, but they are taking the Slackware approach: "it'll be ready when it's ready".

    I'm not sure about the linux client, though.

    Wow this sounds great. Keep us posted.
    The problem 99.999% of the times lies between the chair and the computer.

    Update :

    Me : "From what I read your game will have what I like.
    The sign is your confirmation about making a Linux client for your game.
    I read that you use Torque so it shouldn't be too hard, but I didn't yet "heard" your O.K on that."
    Vince : "Yes, we will do Linux and Mac versions, assuming that we won't run into serious problems with Torque. "
    Me : "Thank you.
    What problems can you encounter ? (sorry for asking)
    Would you also make a 64-bit version ?"
    Vince : "No idea. I mean, Torque is supposed to support Linux, but supposed and does are two very different things and it could take many months of work to bridge them."

    So there is pretty good chance for a Linux client as I suspected from the first place.
    I hope they won't run into problems.

    Ooo...A tactical RPG.

    I like how they are using the all so familiar Fallout style GUI.

    this looks really cool, but dang, i never could stand turn based RPGs. i was always more of a slash & hack RPG'er... (D2 for example).

    You know, that may be another threads topic but Diablo and Diablo2+exp are not REAL RPG's, they just hack and slash games.
    Yeah I thought that Diablo is one of the best RPG's ever, but then one person made me switch my mind.
    Diablo is a good hack and slash game, but it is a very bad RPG.
    if you want to know why, I'll start another thread just for this issue.
