Ultimate ADOM: Caverns Of Chaos This Year

Developer Team ADOM offers a progress report on Ultimate ADOM: Caverns Of Chaos, saying this ADOM remake is due by the end of this year on multiple platforms, including Steam. An alpha version of this was released last month, and the latest version of that can be picked up here. Word is: "25 years ago, the original ADOM kicked off the franchise as a groundbreaking roguelike RPG challenging you to stop the forces of chaos from invading the world of Ancardia. Caverns Of Chaos continues the legacy in an epic quest for glory, and you must again enter the ominous caverns … " Here's the previously released Teaser Trailer and here's more on the game:
Ultimate ADOM: Caverns Of Chaos challenges you to pick up your blade, prepare your spells, check your daggers and ready your bow, for you are about to enter the ominous Caverns of Chaos. Choose your allegiance carefully, for nothing less than the fate of the world depends on your actions and your success or failure. Somewhere, deep down in an inhospitable cave, ChAoS is stirring again, and Seven very different factions vie for control.

Ultimate ADOM: Caverns Of Chaos is packed full of features. The most recent Alpha includes ranged combat, 3 new skill trees (slings, archery and crossbows) each with up to 15 different talents and skills, and plenty of stability optimizations. Alynna, a high-elven archer has been introduced to the game - and setting the stage for crafting, Runes have been introduced as well! These are powerful yet rare little objects discovered in the depths of the dungeons and can upgrade and modify your equipped weapons, giving you a variety and strategy for your quest. 15 of the more than 80 skill trees are now available with many more to come in upcoming updates.

Ultimate ADOM: Caverns Of Chaos offer a deep and compelling gameplay experience combined with rich, emergent storytelling.

The attention to detail is a key element to the immersive gameplay and adds to the fun and replay-value.
