After more than 4 years of development, Darkwood is finally complete. Thank you for being with us.
Early Access has helped this project tremendously, and even though we have stayed in development for way longer than we anticipated, thanks to your feedback Darkwood has grown in scope and complexity in ways we have never imagined possible.
We put our heart and soul into this project. We hope you like it.
Here’s the relase trailer, showing a glimpse of what you may expect in the game:
Once again, thank you for your amazing support and patience,
The Acid Wizards
Hear ye, hear ye!
The time has come for us to unleash the beta unto you! This update features a huge amount of little changes and bugfixes.
The Epilogue is finally finished! It took us a long time, but we can say it’s really badass. Too bad you will have to wait for the final release to play it, as it won’t be available during beta! 😀
What comes next? During the beta phase, we will focus on polishing the existing content, bug fixes, balancing and filling in new content where needed. The main storyline is pretty much done, and won’t be changed much.
We don’t expect to sit long in beta, so if you haven’t played Darkwood yet, we urge you to wait a bit more until the final release!
I won’t be posting a changelog this time, as it would take way too much time, and most of the changes are pretty small. The most notable changes are:
– We’re dropping 32-bit Linux support. I’m not sure if there is anyone out there affected by this change, as the Steam hardware survey does not even mention any 32-bit users out there. I’d like to support as much hardware as possible, unfortunately fighting memory issues on OSX and Linux has been a nightmare before each new version and has taken a considerable chunk of development time, which could have been used on adding cool new features instead. OSX and Linux builds will now be 64-bit, which will make for a more stable and better performing experience.
– The journal has been cleaned up, and we’ve removed some of the unused tabs. We originally planned for the protagonist to keep track of the notable enemies, locations etc. he encounters, but we’ve decided that it would be best if these things would be interpreted by the player only.
