  • The Age of Decadence

RPGs are one of the most popular gaming genres out there. They allow players to go to distance worlds, become legendary warriors, and then save the day as they fight the forces of evil, among other things. But, the RPG genre has also been one that is complacent in how does things. It usually takes a certain path and sticks with it, not wanting to venture and do something unique or different. Some people don't like that mentality, they feel every RPG should be special, and those people got together and made The Age of Decadence.
Defined as an "experiment" The Age of Decadence is an RPG, but one that plays out like a Noir-style story. You see, it's set in a world of "low magic", but instead of getting a party and going out on numerous adventures, you're more confined. For the world around you is crumbling, and only 3 noble houses remain. You will have to survive what is happening, as well as survive the houses themselves, as they're trying to figure out what's going on and try to remain in power while they're doing so.
To survive, you'll need to form alliances, make deals to get information, and protect yourself from those who don't want you to know too much. There is a lot of depth in this game. From the three noble houses, four guilds, and numerous other people there's over 600,000 words of dialogue. All helping to add to a great story.
So, if you're looking for a very different kind of RPG, get The Age of Decadence.

After nearly 2 years of work we finally have a playable build, which is very exciting. It's very rough, of course, as it's the First Iteration of the game and things will change a lot by the time the game is ready to be released. Right now you can talk to people, fight, loot bodies, increase skills and equip new gear. The dialogue scripts are working like a charm, so you can g...


We constantly update the build sitting on the public test branch and every now and then move it to the default branch, so it's business as usual. This time around we fixed two recently reported issues: high level poison was applied incorrectly to arrows and Gaelius' troops accompanying him to the temple were too weak and didn't stand a chance against the Imperial Guards holding the Dead River pass. While we were at it, we decided to integrate Sunfire's (who's a giant among men) most excellent an...


Since we don't have a proper page for our new game yet, I'll post the last update here in the spirit of Christmas: A setting is defined by the factions it spawns. For example, 9th century England is not defined by dudes sporting swords and chainmail but by the warring kingdoms, Viking factions, puppet rulers, the Danelaw, and a clash of religions. In turn, the factions are defined by their leaders who reflect the current state of affairs, and the leaders are defined by the challenges they face. ...
