Just for the record I was a very frustrated LOD backer and denounced the game as unplayable, but with this most recent patch I decided to give it another shot and we family and I are actually enjoying the game quite a lot.
At this point I guess the only outstanding issue that really bothers me during game play is the way they spin me around while I am talking to people and then I have to rotate the camera back where I wanted it every single time.
And Legends of Dawn Patch 1.52 is live!
Legends of Dawn Patch 1.51 is live!
Thx Mark, we sincerely appreciate your support!
I liked Legends of Dawn, and I appreciate that you are continuing to support it. I'm looking forward to Wave of Darkness. I'm sure you've learned some things along the way, and anticipate an even better experience the second time around. Thanks.
Legends of Dawn Patch 1.50 - Languages and Camera View Distance -Update#38
When you first announced Wave of Darkness in a Legends of Dawn update, I noted it as potentially interesting and set the link aside to look at more closely at a later date.
The ongoing barrage of "Wave of Darkness! Wave of Darkness! Wave of Darkness!!!" updates on the Legends of Dawn (note: NOT Wave of Darkness) project, however, has become exceedingly tiresome. I haven't gotten around to looking at the new project yet and I have now decided that I never will, because I refuse to endorse a company spamming the updates for one of their projects with ads for another project. This behavior has lost you a potential Wave of Darkness backer and, if I had already backed it, I would cancel my pledge.
Please stop spamming us with Wave of Darkness. Those who are interested will pledge to the new project and can get their Wave of Darkness news through the Wave of Darkness project. I would like to continue receiving Legends of Dawn news through the Legends of Dawn updates, but I'm on the verge of muting the project and giving up access to actual Legends of Dawn news just to silence the Wave of Darkness spam.
Archangel, we just have meetings to discuss the topic of your proposal about better click to move implementation.
ok, more suggestions: you implemented click to move in LoD, but you could make it good now. Like being able to click and hold to move around and being able to left click on enemy and have our character move there and attack him. Since combat is like in diablo, let us use move and attack scheme like in diablo.
Wave of Darkness - Solve the puzzle! New update!
Dustin, thanks for your comment, and we are glad to know that you get physical copy of the game, We are trying hard to improve things.
I did finally get my physical copy of the game, but it more than a day late and a dollar short. No way would I ever back with you guys again. You weren't transparent in what you did, telling people that things are coming or on the way for well over a year is no way to do business. I don't mind waiting awhile, even as long as you guys drug things out, but there damn well better be some kind of explanation. And giving an extra digital copy of a game is no way to say sorry. If there's any backers of the next kickstarter reading this, beware. No to mention the fact that they used backers as essentially alpha testers on a game that was supposed to be mostly complete when they backed. I'm not sure if you can go back that far in the comments but there were more than a few issues with the original kickstarter awards. More than a few patches required before things became playable. And I may not remember the details now, but there was also something about making the game available on steam before getting it to backers as well. Again, backers of the new campaign, watch out.
Legends of Dawn Patch 1.40! Live!!
Sam, thanks for your time and comment. We are trying to improve communications with backers.
In total, 37% of successfully funded projects have delivered a finished product to backers. Dreamatrix is among them.
All of the digital and physical rewards are completed and delivered. Collector's Box, DVD, CD, and t-shirts are now shipped! (Update #31)
And we will continue to improve LoD. New patch 1.40 coming for few days.
BACKERS BEWARE!!! Anyone researching their investment in WOD: I find it nauseating that this company took literal years to provide rewards and a quasi-playable game to us with practically no communication the entire time beyond "Soon". Then they further insult us by posting here on a near daily basis when its time to go back to the piggy bank. Take your money elsewhere.
Wave of Darkness - Empowered, Blessed and Cursed items! Update#35
Ha! Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. I'm shocked you even dare hold out your tin cup again.
Wave of Darkness 1st DAY - 15% - GREAT START!
Why weren't you able to play it?
I was never able to play this game why would I give you money for a new one?
Wave of Darkness Kickstarter campaign is now LIVE! We need your help, so please tell EVERYONE you know!
Dawn, we tried to fix that problem by adding a lot of tooltips (even VO), but it's far from ideal. In Wave of Darkness, tutorial area is added that explains basic gameplay components such as combat, item looting, area effectors, unlocking, runes, simple quests etc.
I do think the game tried to accomplish too much on its first try. I personnaly felt that it was too heavy..lot of parameters to understand lots of abilities, things to do. I don't know if it was because it was badly explained or too much. I felt drowned when i played this game. I do like complicated stuff though, but this game was too mechanical and made everything you tried to achieved..slow and painful but not on the enticing way.
Fantastic! I'm looking forward to taking the 64-bit engine out for a ride.
Patch 1.30 is out!
In case you don't know guy's :)
Torment needs some help from RPG fans. They need $11k in the next 6 days to hit their stretch goal to add a new area to the game and they are getting less than $1k a day lately.
Planescape: Torment was perhaps the greatest PC game of all time and this successor looks amazing. If you love RPGs and you haven't backed it yet, please do so.
My copy of the game arrived in the mail today and was a pleasant surprise. Thank you.
Thanks for the game. I look forward to trying it!
Thank you, Azghouls!
Got the collectors all the way in Australia! Thank you!
@Lutz Looking at his previous post history, I'm going to go out on a limb and guess "no" on the constructive criticism.
That's interesting. Would you mind to elaborate a little bit more how you came to this conclusion?
This might help the developers to learn, grow and avoid the same mistakes in the future.
Thanks a lot by your valuable input.
too bad the game itself is utter shit
Finally I will be able to play the game. I didn't expect to get it anymore, but it was a pleasant surprise :)
pay = play
I got the boxed version in the post here today in Ireland
soon i will pay it
I got the boxed version yesterday... Thanks!!! :) :) :)
Soonends Of Dawn
im still at the same house / address....i think i might move soon
but don't know how soon or where too......Australia is good and so is New Zealand
i like living on a Island ....all you need to know is how to swim...just in case the Island sinks
At the moment we have all physical reward manufactured. We'll wait a few more days to collect a change of address.
Its a start in the right direction. I have blasted this company, and rightly so, in my opinion, for their utter disregard and unforgivable lack of communication to people who trusted them with their hard earned money. We will see what happens from here, but there are trust issues that, quite frankly, are going to be very tough to forgive OR forget.
Digital Rewards are Ready!
We are extremely happy to be able to tell you that the digital rewards are ready and available for you to download!
Don't know if we all received it or only phisical backers, but I have received this email:
Dreamatrix Team went through a really exciting Kickstarter adventure which resulted in a great success.
The most important parts of that success are you and Legends of Dawn. With your amazing support, our dream of completely funding Legends of Dawn, and releasing it to market became reality. Although we released the game (digital download) relatively quickly, we sincerely apologize to you for the delay in delivery of the rest of KS rewards. KS is a very caring and generous community and we love the concept that many hands make things possible.
We weren't able to finish the huge pre-press work by the specified deadline.
As a small indie team we did not have necessary experience nor the connections. One of the bigger challenges was to find printing companies willing to make small batch of materials for reasonable price. Despite all this, the materials are now ready. We are happy to be able to finally deliver rewards that we promised.
Every backer who had to wait so long for their rewards will get additional copy of Legends of Dawn through Humble Bundle.
You can find your additional copy of the game on your download page below (please note, this is a separate download page than your other rewards):
[link removed by me]
The soundtrack of every tier was “digital only reward” however we took an extra effort and in your physical package you’ll also find special edition of the Legends of Dawn Soundtrack CD – “Thunders of Dawn”. Songs were remixed and integrated in an unbroken flow. Backers with Collector’s boxes are also getting CD box with 20 – page booklet.
Through the Humble Bundle you’ll also receive additional MP3 from the upcoming soundtrack Wave of Darkness (this can be found on your original rewards download page).
We appreciate your trust, and we’ll do our very best to retain your trust by making great games you love. We gave huge amount of love and work in our products, so we really hope you will enjoy Legends of Dawn and our future games. Please, don't hesitate to let us know how you like the game to our firstname.lastname@example.org email address.
How Soon Is Now?
So, while i agree on the fact that you shouldn't trust them and get your hopes high. It seems there is still hope. I hope you'll get what you want.
We can agree, i think. While i can understand why you won't trust them anymore with their promises. I just want to make you realize one thing. A&D didn't just disappear, i know some creators that would just pop out of the air and leave you with your frustration forever.
But as you and I can see it even though they are repeatedly saying "soon". They are still talking which for me means they are still trying. Otherwise they wouldn't give a damn about giving up even one answer to your prayer.
Creator Aurofinity & Dreamatrix on August 14, 2013
We are preparing all rewards, and I hope it will be ready and sent soon. You will be informed about date.
