Greetings!

As you can imagine, we have been quite busy lately; there are already dozens of backers playing the beta of Lords of Xulima.

These dedicated players have been kind enough to let us know, through our development forum, about various bits of the game which required our attention. Fortunately, most of these corrections were related to in-game text: English localization, spelling errors, missing tooltip descriptions, and other similar things. Naturally, we continue to address issues as they come up, whether they are minor or part of the bigger family of compatibility errors.  

With additional feedback from our backers to consider, we have tweaked lots of rules and game parameters so as to improve the game's balance and difficulty. Now, we think Lords of Xulima is much more polished and ready to welcome new beta players!

The New Beta

The latest Beta version includes voice-overs which were missing, Steam achievements as well as a fully implemented Hall of Heroes in the region of Varaskel. Just like the previous Beta phase, we will send out invitation e-mails to ask if you would like to participate in the Beta program. As always, we would like to recommend that players wait until the final version for the best experience possible, but if you wish to play, you can do it now!

Since the process of sending invitations and keys is a task we have to do manually, we will need several days to contact everyone, so we appreciate your patience. This upcoming Monday is when the take-off happens, and if all goes well it might even start sooner!  

As a reminder, this Beta version will be available for all those who pledged for the Beta Player Edition in Kickstarter (or those who pre-ordered from our website). Of course, it is also available for all those who pledged for higher rewards.

Wallpapers & Worldmap Rewards

Last week we sent out wallpapers to eligible backers. This week, we will send you the high-definition Worldmap of Xulima. We hope you like it, and that it will inspire you to look forward to exploring the vast world of Xulima. 

You might be interested in knowing that the small beach known as Tranquil Coast, in the western part of Velegarn, is where the adventure starts...

      hehe very good. Wouldn't want it any other way... I think. But yeah, seriously loving the game! It's a lot of good fun.. and somehow succeeds in making a masochist out of you. ;-)

      @RSF: Thanks! We are glad you like it!

      We will tweak it and balance it better in the beginning but the Hardcore old-school feeling is mandatory in LoX :o)

      Just wanted to say, I've sunk some time in the beta... and this game is freakin' awesome!! Although I think I agree, it's a bit too hardcore on normal though. ;-)

      @Numantian Games:

      Thanks :) Sorry for asking in the comment section, just was unsure if I should ask here, the PM or by an email

      @XV-Dragon:

      Done!

      Got a question that I was unsure where to ask but is there a way to get the wallpaper images again?

      Just after I down loaded them and deleted the email the files were sent in, my new laptop had issues staying connected to the internet and the store said it would be easier to just give me a new one of the same model over fixing the first laptop (forgot I did not make a second save to my USB of new files like I normally do for things like the wallpaper images)

      Humble Store will hopefully also be an option? ^^

    8. Creator JackDandy on June 12, 2014

      Woohoo! It's happening!

    9. Creator Robert Kelley on June 12, 2014

      Exactly what Gurney said, which is GREAT!!

    10. Creator Gurney on June 12, 2014

      I love the map!
      It reminds me of the old Might & Magic :)

    11. Creator madGamer on June 12, 2014

      @Numantian Games thanks.

    12. Creator Numantian Games on June 12, 2014

      @madGamer: Yes, no problem. We will ask the backer which platform they prefer before sending the keys.

    13. Creator madGamer on June 12, 2014

      @Numantian Games thanks for the answer. but we could have for free a gog key instead the steam version? I prefer waiting and have the gog key.

      @madGamer:
      Hi! Steam version will be the first one, but we will release Lords of Xulima in as many portals as possible, including of course GoG.

    15. Creator madGamer on June 12, 2014

      I know that the beta is in steam, but its possible when you release the final version to have an option to choose Steam or GOG? thanks
