Age of Decadence

Post by Avenger » Thu May 12, 2011 12:23 am

This looks interesting. It is an indie title. Just a heads up.

You mean the one from '07 or '08? Maybe it's time for another look at this PS:T wannabe.
The combat demo r3 (revision 3) is impossible to win. I've tried to defeat the unarmored-thief-with-a-dagger around fifty times.

I think it's okay to start a new thread when the other one is three years old. Anyway - reading stuff on their forums, it looks like it might actually be released sometime this year.

RPS has something here.

This is the first I've heard of this game.

I played the previous demo, or something. It does look interesting, but as others have said, it's been in development for almost forever. I'll check back and and actually look into it when it finally gets released.

I'm very interested in it but am going to wait for some impressions and possibly a sale before pulling the trigger.

I'm intrigued by the game's emphasis on story over combat to the extent that one can actually finish it without even a tussle. I may bite during the holiday sale.

I'm with hepcat. Right now W2DC is scratching my RPG itch, so I just wishlisted Age of Decadence and figure it will be on sale at some point over the holidays.

W2DC?

I am just flabbergasted that AoD actually released. Almost a decade ago I was reading about this game, thinking it sounded pretty cool. By this point, I figured it was vaporware.

Loving the game so far. Playing a combat character fist time through. The amount of different options and story lines is really nice. Combat is hard but not undo-able, I like it. I've played Wasteland 2, Pillars of E, DD: original Sin, Risen 3, etc and for me Age of Decadence is a contender for best game I've played this year. If you're on the fence IMO you should jump off and get the game.

I liked the conversation trees... kinda reminds me of Torment.
Plays more like a point'n'click adventure - always looking for dem hotspots. Otherwise the environments are stark and non-interactive.
Skill points are handed out like candy. Where you use them determines a pass/fail on conversations choices, etc.
Somehow I managed to dead-end on all my questlines, probably from misplacing skill points.
Uninstalled.

Any more recent feedback on the game since it's on a Steam sale for $7.49.

I took a look at this when Gog had it on sale for like $5 recently but after reading about the game I said 'No...thank you.'. Doing away with inventory, encumbrance etc. is like getting rid of stats and their improvement and still calling it a roleplaying game IMO.

Found the strength in this game for me playing as a Merchant who relies on Persuasion and must avoid fights. The ability to talk your way out of fights is an aspect I've always enjoyed in RPG; the absolute reliance on this ability once you choose that path is great fun.
