Hey, the Arcen wiki is now open for all to edit!

 Well hello!  I’ll have more information on Stars Beyond Reach later in the week.  But for the moment, I wanted to give a quick important announcement about our wiki.  Previously it was invite-only, and mainly edited by staff.  Consequently it was often out of date. Now it’s open to anyone to edit, although you do […]

This one brings official linux support to the game for the first time, as well as a 64bit build for OSX.  There is also one minor bugfix in there, too.

Followup to last year’s AI War postmortem (now discussing Bionic, TLF, etc).

Last June I wrote a postmortem of AI War, which also wound up being a form of history of Arcen as a whole.  But now a whole year has passed, and we’ve released Skyward Collapse: Nihon no Mura, Bionic Dues, and The Last Federation in that time.  We also have a lot more data on […]

About The Recent Schedule, and TLF Updates

A really great question from a recent post: Hi Chris – Is the last federation pretty much the final product now? Unless I’ve missed something the last update was June 6th to 1.24 -25 Before that you were changing every two or three days. Thanks I’ve posted a few notes about this in the Off […]

As a small token of our appreciation for the support you’ve given us, we’re releasing […]

Valley 2 Official 1.007 “Thorns In The Sink” Released!

This one tweaks a tiny bit more balance relating to the Thorncerer and the blast spells.  It also puts in some automatic re-syncing during multiplayer after each turn is advanced, after each time an NPC order is given, and after each time morale is lost due to a death.  Desyncs were not common at all […]

Valley 2 Official 1.006 “Five Tier Rejuvenation” Released!

This one addresses the balance between some of the mage classes; in particular, focusing on those at Tier 5. Enjoy!

Valley 2 Official 1.005 “Fear Of Bats” Released!

This one addresses one and only one balance issue: shadow bats outside of The Deep, particularly on harder difficulties.  These guys really could make the overlord’s keep unwinnable in certain circumstances. Enjoy! This is a standard update that you can download through the  in-game updater itself, if you already have any version of the game.  […]

Last Call for Steam Savings and IndieFort Bundle

Just a quick reminder that both the AI-war featured IndieFort Spring Bundle and the major Steam discounts on our full library of titles are available for just a few more hours, so act quick if you haven’t already! Plenty of new coverage to share as well, including some in-depth interviews Chris took part in last week: Co-Optimus: Indie-Ana […]

Valley 2 Official 1.004 “Endless Lightning” Released!

This one addresses two minor issues, and a third issue that could make the end of the game excessively hard to complete under certain circumstances (on higher difficulties in particular). Enjoy! This is a standard update that you can download through the  in-game updater itself, if you already have any version of the game.  If […]

Arcen Catalog Steam Sale, IndieFort Spring Bundle, and Full Indie Summit

(Alright, year). Upcoming Game reveals aside, we have several new developments to share during this week alone: Steam Sale: Entire Arcen Catalog 75% Off Steam’s put the whole lot on sale this time, and I mean everything. For the next week, you’ll find the entire Arcen library slashed down to very […]

Valley 2: Reviews, Podcasts, and Let’s Play Videos

Valley 2 1.003 is out now, if you hadn’t heard. As we let the game breathe a bit, our focus shifts to Shattered Haven’s official launch later this month (March 18th, to be exact). Before that, however, we wanted to highlight all the coverage Valley 2 (and company) has seen in the past month — […]

Valley 2 Official 1.003 “But The Third One Stayed Up!” Released!

This one addresses a few minor issues that had collected, including a couple of annoying things with the ending cutscene of the game.  The largest thing overall in this one is that Swamp Castles now work properly in actually granting your NPCs speed bonuses on the world map. Enjoy! This is a standard update that […]

Valley 2 Official 1.001-1002 “Mouse Aiming For Those Who Stood And Fought” Released!

This one addresses a few minor issues, as well as properly filling out the beta player contributors credits list. More newsworthy, undoubtedly, is the addition of a new option in the settings menu that enables mouse-aiming.  This is something I said I’d never do for this game, but apparently never say never. I maintain my […]
