  1. Wow! I hope you are able to get your wallet back, that's always painful to lose. :(


    Thanks Legate. I'm afraid it's gone for good, and even if it isn't, the cards have already been cancelled, so they're useless now anyway. The worst part is that I was carrying a rather hefty amount of cash, since I'd just made a rather large withdrawal, to pay the next 3 months rent. Sigh.


    Oh, well. I don't want to bring anyone down, so I'll stop ranting about my personal troubles. The good news is that I should receive a new visa card soon, which will enable me to buy this game, as a consolation. :)

  2. Is there a consolidated change log available anywhere, covering all of the changes and additions made by all patches so far? I'm asking because I stumbled on a discussion elsewhere on the internet, where some people are asking what has changed since the game was released, and I can't remember all of it (or much of it, even). :)

  3. Currently, we are on track for a release in 2012, towards the end of the year. We're currently writing for the game, actually. :)


    Alright, thanks. That's a long way off, to be sure, but it's good to see that you're not rushing it, at least. :)

  4. Its Named Patch 40 to keep the week count corect but in real its more like 35 or even less.


    I see. Although ~35 patches is still pretty impressive.


    @Legate: How's Year 2 coming along? Is it supposed to be released this year, or is next year?

  5. I can't believe you're already up to patch 40. That's dedication!


    It's been a while since I played Academagia, so I'm looking forward to checking it out, and seeing all the improvements and additions you guys have made in the meantime.


    I can't help but notice that the changelogs are getting pretty short. I guess you're running out of issues to fix. :D

  6. I would love to see more games of this kind, not just the sequels for this game, but other games using other settings, too. If some kind of combat mechanic could be implemented, the engine could probably be used for pretty much any rpg setting imaginable. PC rpg's need to focus more on writing than on graphics, imo, and I'm glad to see Academagia take this approach. Kudos to the developers.

  7. The Song of Ice & Fire series by George RR Martin - The most original, enthralling fantasy series I have read since Tolkien.


    Seconded. These books are truly excellent. I worry, though, that Martin won't ever finish the series. He's taking a long, long time writing each book, and he's not getting any younger.


    edit: btw, there are also two short stories by GRRM, set in the same universe, about 100 years or so earlier, iirc. They're called The Hedge Knight and The Sworn Sword. I haven't actually read the short stories, but both have been adapted into comic books, both of which I did read, and they are definitely recommended for any fan of A Song of Ice and Fire.


    I've been reading Glen Cook's Black Company books. I'm only on the third one, and while it isn't quite as good as the two first (so far, anyway), I'd say that the series is good, and I recommend it. It follows a mercenary company, and their exploits in a larger conflict, and in some ways it's reminiscent of Martin's books, mainly in that the good guys aren't really that good, there's blood and rape, and main characters die.

  8. I can't remember if this has been mentioned yet, but how about adding an ironman mode? I very much enjoy playing certain types of games in ironman mode, but I usually don't have the spine to go through with it if I have the option to reload. It's not a huge deal, but I think this game would lend itself very well to that type of play.

  9. Nikolaj;


    Just MMOs- I'm not sure why they do, either. It's counter-intuitive.


    We will have to revise this area at least once more (to allow roll-overs for the color blind), when we do, perhaps we'll make a toggleable option so you can choose if you want it rainbow or MMO style.


    That'd be nice, since I've never played an MMO (well, I played Eve for a week or two), and I'm guessing there must be others out there, too. ;)

  10. Before the latest patch, it used to be that you'd succeed on Black generally 75 percent chance (if not more- I got to the point where I had 100 success on it). Purple was generally a 70 or so chance, by my reckoning. I never failed blue (or green, of course).


    Really? i routinely failed on blue, while I'd say that black were about 50/50 for me. I only think I passed a purple once or twice, and never a red.


    Maybe I'm just unlucky.
