    The Age of Decadence has been officially released. Yes, it took them many years but in the end they even crossed the finishing line one day ahead of schedule.



    The Age of Decadence is an isometric, turn-based, single-player role-playing game set in a low magic, post-apocalyptic fantasy world, inspired by the fall of the Roman Empire. The game features a detailed skill-based character system, multiple skill-based ways to handle quests, choices & consequences, and extensive dialogue trees.

    Traditionally, many fantasy RPGs are about killing things, clearing up dungeons, and being a hero. Now, there is nothing wrong with mindless fun and wish fulfillment, but we serve a different meal here. Quoting from one of the reviews:

    “Well, if you want a hardcore, heavy metal roleplaying experience that challenges you, this is the ticket. Otherwise, take a pass. The game is vicious, both in its lack of morality and its merciless systems. If you want to be the hero of a story, run and don’t look back. If you want to be Attia of the Julii or be a power player, this is your RPG.”

    The game is available on Steam and GOG.

    So, congratulations to our Iron Tower Studio friends I guess. Feel free to post your impressions in the comments thread.

    That must have been a massive chip taken away from your shoulders. May it sell well and become the RPG classic it deserves!

    I still remember the first public alpha / beta/whatever where people were bitching how they got owned by their first encounter. I decided then and there I'd keep an eye on this game and give it a shot once it is released.

    One more worthy title to add to the ol' backlog.

    I just don't know why you didn't release it on Thursday...

    No matter what we might think of the result, for good or worse, congratulations for not letting your dreams be dreams.

    Congratulations! I've been looking at this game for some time now, albeit never too closely. From what I've read - what makes me a bit concerned - is that some make it sound as if there's a lot of one-way-streets. While I appreciate challenge, I don't like having to click through 20 options of an encounter only to find out that there's only one right way. Anyone can chip in on that?

    Damn, it must be almost 10 years now since I first read about it in the Romanian PC Games magazine.

    Can't wait to not be able to get past the first combat and then ragequit. Congrats Iron Tower!

    I don't think so but don't take my word for it. Try the demo and see for yourself.
