Thanks for pointing that out -- can't change it in the article now, but here's an updated link: Soldak.com
Pausable real time. :)
$4.99, with a slight launch week discount.
It'll be on Steam, and ArcenGames.com tomorrow; with other distributors likely to follow.
There are a variety of customization options, all in place already (no more will be coming, it's all done in this regard):
- When you start out, you choose your character and their custom stats (randomly rolled, but you can reroll).
- As you level up, you choose 1 perk out of 4 available for each of 16 levels.
- Every 3 or so levels, you get a new "mage class cache" and get to choose a whole new set of spells that are more powerful.
- Around the world you'll find treasure chests that give you equipment that give you temporary bonuses or penalties -- the equipment breaks if you die or if you take too many hits.
- There are four different feats that you can steal from skelebot research facilities and equip on your character to get new movement abilities.
And that's just the character side of things. Really, the bulk of the focus is on the civilization itself, and the world map is your oyster so to speak. You're engaged in warfare and capturing and exploiting the lands around you with survivors that you recruit to your cause. It's very much a Metroidvania game meets a strategy game. So it doesn't have traditional RPG-style character improvements because this isn't remotely an RPG; but for a Metroidvania title, I don't think there's one with more customization options off the top of my head.
Nope, we're leaving AVWW 1 as is (though we still plan on potentially some more content updates). All the new art is going toward AVWW 2.
Cheers dirkson. :)
Apologies everyone, for some reason a few of the images didn't correctly show up in the post. You can see them in full by clicking the link at the post. Thanks!

Crap, I could swear it wasn't like that when I submitted. Sorry about that!
One of the developer's here. Yeah, the only 'DRM' in our games is the simple licence key. The game will work across multiple platforms.
Thanks! Yes, we got some complaints with the art early on in development, but most who play it feel anything that was inconsistent was because of the lack of video quality for our trailer. Even in HD it just doesn't do it justice comparably to actually playing.
