ADOM (Ancient Domains of Mystery) (now at version 3.3.1)
« on: October 17, 2017, 08:44:25 AM »
Hi everyone!

I am very proud to announce the release of ADOM 2.3.5 as a Steam Beta to the general public:
    http://www.adom.de/steam

The process to access the ADOM 2.3.5 beta is described here: http://www.ancientdomainsofmystery.com/p/adom-beta-steam.html

The general public release hopefully will follow very soon - we just want to get feedback on stability, first impressions, etc. for a couple of days before it will be launched.

Note that ADOM 2.3.5 still is a beta version - there might be bugs, crashes, etc. that we didn't discover in our tests. So be prepared for a little bumpiness - experience has taught us that general public releases are very different from prerelease test releases, which in turn yield a very different experience to our local tests.

ADOM 2.3.5 is the culmination of more than a year of development (one year and one day exactly today - our last release was ADOM 2.2.6 on October, 16th, 2016).

ADOM 2.3.5 contains tons of new stuff. I just want to give you a few highlights:
- A new, much more beautiful and much more functional HUD.
- Tons of graphical tweaks (like mostly animated monsters, speech bubbles, quick hints, dialog boxes, etc.)
- Tons of usability enhancements (quick hints, better context menus, more graphical mouse cursors, finally ESC support, a better quest status screen, many improved dialogs, etc. pp.)
- Tons of new content (117 new items, 22 new monsters, Rolf Quest, Volcano Quest, rechargeable items as a while new item category, ...)
- A new "easy" game mode (that doesn't take away any content or fun but serves as a better game mode for new ADOM players - the game will try to kill you a little less often ;-) )

Read all the details here:
http://www.ancientdomainsofmystery.com/2017/10/adom-235-released-as-steam-beta.html

And now enjoy the latest version and let us know what you think!

If you find bugs or have ideas for more improvements please submit them at http://www.adom.de/bugs

We now are back to working and ADOM 2.3.6 and ADOM 2.4.0 and will be active a lot more often from now on.

Kind regards
Thomas Biskup & Team ADOM

Hi!

We just released ADOM 3.2.2 to Steam: https://www.ancientdomainsofmystery.com/2018/05/adom-322-released-to-steam-to-satisfy.html

Sadly there is nothing exciting to report as we spent the past two weeks making all our sites and the game GDPR-compliant (if you don't know what that is - see the link above) and had no time to create anything of value. Additionally your data won't be any safer despite two lost weeks as we already were very careful about protecting your data and using it with great care and responsibility. Now there's a lot more legalize about it and internal documentation... but it's basically worthless except in the eyes of EU bureaucrats.

Next release will be more exciting - we promise.

Keep gaming!

Hi everyone!

We just released ADOM 3.3.0 as a Steam beta: https://www.ancientdomainsofmystery.com/2018/09/announcing-adom-330-as-steam-beta.html

This is kind of exciting (besides it being a cool new ADOM release) because it marks the beginning of our road towards both a new general public release (as soon as we are sure there are no showstopping bugs) as well as the impending release of ADOM on GOG, something we all have been waiting for for a long time.

So enjoy the new release, test it heavily and give us your feedback via the usual channels (especially https://www.adom.de/forums and https://www.adom.de/bugs).

Axes high!
Thomas & Team ADOM

That you keep double posting announcements tells that it's probably one of your paid developers posting (more like spamming) here, because you should know the rules.

TBH I had talked to Slashie and he told me it isn't a problem as long as I don't start endless threads (which I stopped a long while ago).

But if it offends anyone (which it obviously did according to your post) I'll immediately stop doing so.

Thanks for your feedback!
