The Temple of Torment (Now at Stable 14.0)
« on: December 01, 2014, 07:15:24 AM »
The Temple of Torment is a open world Roguelike with stronger focus on roleplaying, good and evil choices and dialogues. Set on a fantasy world inhabitated only by humans invaded by forces of Hell.

I'd describe The Temple of Torment as mixture of Diablo 1, Baldur's Gates and ADOM.

As this turned from Beta to Stable game Early Dev forum was not enough.

Some things about the game
  • Full mouse support
  • Optional ASCII and Permanent Death
  • 25 World Map Locations, with many having sub-locations
  • Over 300 Unique Graphics
  • Character Classes: 12
  • Quests: 35
  • Over Hundred Items
  • Over 100 Spells and Talents (Passive and Active Talents)
  • Over 60 Monsters

Congrats once again!   8)

Now that you've hit an initial Stable release, what does the general roadmap of emphasis and timeline on hopeful further development look like from here?

I plan to

-add multiple new villages with unlockable quests and initial quests
-add alternative endings
-add droppable unique items

Stable 2 should have at least one new village and droppable uniques.

Evil ending I'd do right away but I can't figure out the path to it. The plot would divide to two paths when player enters Hell and meets The Bad Guy with the options of joining his cause or fighting against it which is the current plot. But it's the evil quests that come after that gives me headache.

Congrats Aukustus! Downloaded and will definitely give some feedback.
I wish I could call VotE stable already, but there's too much content missing (mostly spells) to do so :(

Have a mirror for the download? For some reason, I can't seem to get it. Tried several times tonight and last night. Keeps saying download failed. Network error.

It's surprising to find a lets play video of own game, and even a little bit amusing it being in Russian and having no idea what's going on :)
