Byzen tells the beginning and development of the ‘Revolución Oriental’ (Eastern revolution) in 1811, focusing especially on the episodes of oppression of the Viceroyalty of Rio de la Plata on the Banda Oriental. The game is introduced from the diary of a peasant named Ignacio, who writes about the serious problems that weigh on his homeland due to the Spanish Empire control. Our protagonist decides to take along, with several others, a revolution to the north of the Banda Oriental, which fails and as consequence are taken under the claws of the Spanish crown. Ignacio manages to escape from Montevideo’s prison, hiding at two days from the city. There, he meets Venancio, a farmer who hates viceroy Elio with as much fury as the rest of the viceroyalty, it is then that he makes one with the ‘Oriental’ collective need for freedom and put an end to Elio’s harsh rule.

Byzen has been under development since 2011 and as soon as there has been something to comment or make official our blog or social media has been used for it.

Since almost no information about development has been published during the last year, we are now going to inform you what has been done during 2014.

New engine update:
The graphic engine has been modified by its creators, which has been useful to add new characteristics and correct evident errors which were much more complicated to solve in its previous version. The new engine has changed the way of representing shadows, models and textures as well as it has also been optimized in order to have a better performance. A great detail is the quality of water inside Byzen, which has been considerably changed.

Before:

After:

Campaign mode:
This mode is finished, each mission is completely programmed but still during testing stage. Many errors are being corrected.

Update system:
The update system is also under development and we are using the same previously presented version and will be released at the same time with Byzen. The user will be able to download the whole game and to keep it updated just by downloading one executable file as soon as we publish any news or updates.

Revisions:
Byzen is under revision 6, version 0.1. When we move to revision 7 the new update will be ready and we will be able to go on correcting normal errors.

Byzen’s future and its releasing date:
We don’t really enjoy discussing this point, since speculation has been our big failure. Still, we are going to let you know part of the situation to make some points clear:

We must remember Byzen is an official game for CODICEN and that we are completely being supported by them. However, CODICEN not only supports us, but also wants to acquire the game’s license in order to distribute it all over the computers which are given by the Uruguayan state to the students and also to upload it so that anybody con play it for free. Due to this fact the price of the license is under negotiation and that an evaluation committee enters in scene in order to give a suitable price to the license.

This means there is some time destined to negotiation and legal proceedings which are hopefully finishing and we are surely giving you good news in no time.
Well, the releasing date, based on what we have just commented will be on the 19th December 2014 but only if we get to an agreement with CODICEN, otherwise we will be releasing it on the 28th February 2015. According to the negotiation’s development, BYZEN WILL BE AVAILABLE BEFORE 28/02/2015

New incorporations:
During this year 5 more people have been incorporated to the team:

Sound area:

Maria Eugenia Carcoba – Feminine voice

Camilo Salvetti – Masculine voice

Agustin Careces – Music

Testing Area:

Enzo Ottonelli – Tester Leader

Diego Martin Piriz – Tester

With this we end with 2014 EG-Games news trying to calm the people who really want to play Byzen

¿Ya que usan Pyrogenesis lo podrían portar después a Linux sin muchos problemas no? Se ve excelente el juego y me gustaría poder disfrutarlo también.

Why don't you just call this a mod for 0 AD instead of a full indie game? You may get more recognition and support if you do the former.

Because byzen has a modified engine, and has a very little part of 0 ad. byzen is in develop in this moment, and its not finished the part of menus, ui, etc.

If you've truly modified the engine, and not just the JavaScript files and art, you have to release the source of those modifications as well as the art and executable itself. Pyrogenesis is released under the GPL which simply put says that if you make a release that is based on a program using that license you need to make the source available as well.

Hmmm... I was about to say the interface looks like the one in 0 A.D. but now I see they are both built on the same engine. :)

It looks interesting. I'll track it. :) Good luck with it!
