Old saved games from old Insanity demo versions/vanilla/libertatis are incompatible with new patches, so start a new game to apply all changes and avoid corrupt scripts or broken games, thank you very much.


There are 2 different downloads available for version 0.4.7:

  • 0.4.7 Patch only version: this just include updates so it's required to have 0.4.5 (Or latest) previously installed before hand (0.4b is obsolete and not supported).
  • 0.4.7 Full version: this is an all-in-1 package (Full Insanity demo + patch), if you don't want complications just install this package and you're done, older demo versions or patches aren't required.

demo oct30


First of all, plans for Arx Insanity continue for October 30th, a demo will be released featuring 5 levels from the game, also including the full modifications from this first part of the game. The full version has been postponed until further notice.

The coronavirus pandemic situation is very difficult for all of us, from financing, time and difficulties. Even with the maximum efforts, it was really hardcore, I lost my job and now there is a lack of one, money, time, modding work overload and health problems, all of this affected the development schedule.

Read the complete statement here

trailer release


Finally, I'm happy to announce the Arx Insanity demo release date, after 6 years of development the mod is in a final state and it's getting solid, so the date is close and the mod demo will be released on NOVEMBER 8TH 2020, starting with a beta release!.

Development is intense and day to day the mod is being improved and approaching the conclusion, the long wait is almost over.

Plus, to commemorate the release date announcement, a first trailer for Arx Insanity is now released!, you can watch it in the link below:


Nice! Gotta say, my only disappointment with this is that it ends, lol. All the gameplay, graphical etc. enhancements are excellent! I wish there was a way to play the rest of the game with at least the gameplay systems, but I can see how it's dependent on the revamped maps, too.

Thank you very much for your kind of words! Your support gives a lot of motivation to continue working and improving the project, the demo is short but I think these 4 levels will give you an idea about how the mod will be, the time it takes to finish the project will be worth it, the other levels are more faithful to the original game and there is too much new lore and details to discover, thanks for playing

Yeah, it gives me a nice sort of Deus Ex/Thief vibe since you've expanded so well on the player freedoms the game already had. One thing I did notice was combat felt a bit easier with the adrenaline blows, but I assume the later game stuff is probably harder to even it out.

Is there a way to get the bug fixes and optimisations without the new features?

Hi, the mod is almost a different game, I mean absolutely everything was changed and replaced, scripting is more complex and detailed in the mod, it's a huge ecosystem and it's not possible. You can play with textures or sounds separately but not what you mentioned

Uhhh! =) Again, that was a quick one. Did you and your team discovered the Real-Life Mega Movis - Spell, or what? Nice little improvements Mr. Ordaz. ;)
