Two updates in one row, 0.25 is about "mana tactics", 0.26 is about graphical update. See the details below ! :)

Change log: 0.26

  • New shadows.
  • New anti-aliasing method (TAA).
  • Tree foliage now uses a much less detailed model in the distance, for performance.
  • Tried to improve water simulation performance on some CPUs.
  • Added rim lighting and adjusted land textures.
  • Disabled stylistic post-processing effect by default, you can toggle it with F5.
  • Various rendering optimizations.
  • Sound volume instead of master volume in settings.

Change log: 0.25

  • Mana is now "wild" by default and should be claimed with the new Claim Mana spell.
  • Gatherers only pick up mana owned by the player now, ignoring the wild mana.
  • Player's maximum mana depends on the mana stored in the castle now.
  • Player's mana regeneration rate now depends on the mana owned (claimed) by the player.

  • Added dotted line to the castle on the map.
  • Spell icon turns semi-transparent now when the spell can't be cast.
  • Made Fracture spell stronger and improved its effect aesthetically.
  • Updated the tutorial to teach about claiming mana.
  • Fixed items appearing inside menhirs sometimes.
  • Added additional screen message with smaller text, mostly for the tutorial.

It would be nice if you would add an 'invert-y as'-function add to the game, because I like to play games when i go up with the mouse, the screen go up.

So please can u add it?

Hello elecdog,
This game looks great. I just had a question. Now that you are greenlit are you going be offering the game on steam exclusively? or will i still be able to get updates from desura or wherever i buy it? i Have nothing against steam really. But i do not have the internet at my home. So i download games elsewhere and play them at home. Every time i get into a game they go exclusively to steam lol. Thanks for any info,

No, it'll still be available and updated DRM-free on my site, Desura, IGS store etc.

You'll also get a Steam key if you buy it before it's released on Steam. I'm not sure about after that though.

Can someone post the system minimum requirements to play this game? I have a fairly old (but still decent) laptop I tried playing this on and got absolutely HORRIBLE stuttering, lag, and I couldnt even play. At all. Thats how horrible it was. A real shame too because the game looks very pretty and I would have liked to try it out. I would like to know the system requirements so I know if it was the game (bugs or what not) or if I just needed to upgrade to a new computer to play. (which wont be for awhile but itll be something to look forward to i guess)

Unfortunately, it's still in flux so it's hard to tell the final system requirements. You obviously meet the minimum ones to technically run it.

Things to try:
Set the graphics quality to "low". The game won't look as good, but should run much better graphics-wise.
Press F2 to pause game logic updates. That'll stop water/lava simulation that takes a lot of CPU time. If it removes lag, your CPU is likely too slow. If not, video card is an issue.

I suspect it might have performance issues with integrated Intel graphics, but I can't test that for now.

Update 0.17 is awaiting authorization on Desura now, should be available in a few days.
It has very basic story mode with universe map and saved games, but no real story features yet.

Sorry, but my hard drive still in repair state, so I can't publish anything as I don't have any data, I can just upload the demo installer on the IndieDB page.

No problem, it's not approved by Desura yet anyway.
