Ran into a few issues
Ok - there's a new build available, fixing a number of freezing issues, and adding more help info (press ESC in game to see the help text).

Would you mind trying this one and seeing if that's better?

Ok that's really odd. Glad you got it working!

Can you try disabling anti-virus and adding the folder to the Windows Defender exceptions list and see if that works?

Looks like you've hit a freezing bug - it's been reported by a couple of people. The characters sometimes don't move or die. Will fix today.

not sure about why "quit" doesn't work - perhaps something to do with the full screen mode choice. Will investigate.

The character freezing has been already reported: will fix today.

you can only control one member: the others move themselves (although you've hit a bug where they don't move) In the full game you'll be able to shout commands.

i think the full screen resolution it's choosing is the issue. I'll start the game windowed in the next build I think.

I'll fix the decals. I have to go through the meshes one by one and I obviously missed some!

The other two bugs - freezing and not dying are actually the same thing. I can fix that today.

I'll post a better explanation of combat to the campaign and pop some more text on the build to explain.

thanks for the feedback!

Hmm; most likely to be a windows defender issue or similar. I'll release a signed version today to try.

Hmm - that's annoying. Sorry about that! I'll see if I can figure out what's going on.

Ealdorlight: on Kickstarter tomorrow
Some more detail about the gameplay!

You start by travelling between villages and towns on the edge of a randomised kingdom map.

You might craft simple items and farm crops, selling them at the market, all the time asking for information about your family from tinkers and travellers passing through.

You can take on quests from the townsfolk, and be rewarded with reputation, gold, and ancient items. Alternatively, you can steal money or items from them.

Work for someone with the right contacts, and you might also gain introductions to more powerful characters.

Impress the right people, and be granted lands and titles as you get ever closer to the King.

You can recruit characters with different skills, abilities and contacts to aid you in your struggle.

Along the way you may discover who you are and where you came from, and why you cannot remember your past.

In the end-game, you’ll earn access to the court of the current King, and work out how to take his place.

You might win over the ruling nobles through tales of your great deeds and your strength of character.

You might cause a scandal which causes the court to lose faith in the the King - he might have one or two skeletons in the closet which you could discover and expose.

If he refuses to step down, you can hatch a plot to arrange the King's untimely death, with you lined up to take his place.

If all else fails, you can storm the castle and take the throne through force in a bloody military coup.

You might use a combination of these methods to take the throne: but how do you stay true to your character in the process?

Ealdorlight: on Kickstarter tomorrow
Hi all,

Thought that it was about time I talked about my new RPG here...!

It's heading out on Kickstarter next Tuesday - 6th June at 4pm UK time.

Here's a super-secret preview link for the Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/chrismdp/460088710?token=b18de00d

Feedback is very welcome!

Some detail: single player RPG set in a medieval kingdom where magic is rare and mysterious. The game has turn-based combat with a realistic damage system that models bones, muscles and organs. It also procedurally generates a new kingdom history, society and people every game. Each time you play you'll meet different characters with different backstories.

You discover at the beginning of the game that you were found lost as a small child, and the identity of your real family is unknown. Soon after, you meet the Ealdorlight, a legendary supernatural being not seen for centuries, who tells of darkness in the kingdom and invites you to take the King's place. You must leave your adopted home and travel the land, gaining connections, title and influence in order to discover your real family, and to win the throne: through honour, intrigue, or force, or a combination!











Older trailer showing concept art - new trailer on Tuesday:

Feel free to ask questions - happy to chat about the game!

Thanks

Modding GUI suggestion
You've got it - the game wasn't expecting that many bitmaps. I've upped the number in the next build - available soon!
