The latest version of Chaos Reborn sees the release of our single player realm quest campaign, which can be played offline. You can play through a series of 5 realms of increasing difficulty, using a host of new realm design systems. The game will also be shortly released on www.gog.com (we will be sending additional instructions shortly after Christmas for backers who would like to have the GOG version instead of the steam version). And check out the new Christmas theme:

It's winter in the realms of chaos

Demo

There is a Chaos Reborn Steam demo which includes all the multiplayer battle features for free, and one offline realm quest. Please let your friends, family and acquaintances know about it, and you can play multiplayer battles with them. Here is the link:

V1.3 Update Notes

Here are the full details of the update:

  • Play through a series of five realms and try to achieve gold rank with each one
  • When you are waiting for a multiplayer match you no longer have to stare at a boring screen. Instead, a little queue widget is displayed and you can happily equip your wizard or play online realms while waiting for opponents. If you are playing a battle against AI you can be pulled out of it to play a multiplayer game, and then resume your realm battle after the multiplayer battle is finished. (note: if you enter a battle with an ally or as an invader your multiplayer request is cancelled). 
  • You can access a 'quick match' request from the options screen. This means that you could be playing a realm and request a multiplayer match without having to exit the realm. 
  • There are numerous changes to the realm creation system. Encounters are more sophisticated and check various conditions to trigger outcome choices. There are some new encounter effects, such as connecting or disconnecting towns and releasing marauders. Creature allies hired through encounters can be named. Taboos can now be directly edited. All of these features are used in the new offline realm campaign. 
  • When you select a creature in battle that has one or more buffs affecting it, there is a visual display showing circling coloured balls corresponding to the buff type. Red = attack buff, blue = defence buff, green = agility buff, purple = magic power buff. 
  • A wizard with activated talismans has a circling talisman object to show that a talisman is activated. 
  • In realm quests, when starting a battle involving only settlers there is a warning message displayed to remind you that your wizard is not present. 
  • Realm quests - you no longer need to be at a captured citadel to cast the palace breach spell. You can cast it from anywhere. 
  • Realm difficulty - the maximum creature allies the enemy wizards can have is now affected by the realm level. Level 1 realms are limited to 3 allies, level 2 realms, 4 allies, and so on, up to a maximum of 8. [*]Realm and battle graphics have a christmas theme. 
  • AI now makes proper use of Transmutation talismans (e.g., the Romero "undead" talisman, the "Clementine" neutralizing talisman), they are no longer pre-activated at the start of the battle. 
  • AI improvements - AI Wizard makes better use of mounts and is more likely to attack when mounted. AI responds more pro-actively to undead threats. AI now uses mana bind talismans. 
  • Lowered transformation rate of Aconite talisman (vine to spiders) and fixed a bug with async games where the transformation limit was not respected. 
  • Realm shops now show the new 3D display for equipment with spell affinity information for staffs. 
  • For those of you that backed the game at wizard lord level or above, you will be able to enter a name to appear in the game credits with the next update. 
  • Staff type has a slightly greater impact on deck composition - spells with staff affinity are more likely to be included. 
  • Exemplum Funus talisman now only gives spell cards for real creatures killed, as per talisman description. Also clarified "Volaticus Duplus" talisman description.

      Now into February, and still no updates about the GoG version for the backers. The game is available on GoG, and I believe it should just be a matter of providing GoG keys to the backers.
