Age of Fear 2: The Chaos Lord Now Available on Steam

Posted by Rampant Coyote on March 30, 2015

AgeOfFearMy friend Leszek Sliwko emailed me to let me know that his turn-based fantasy strategy game, Age of Fear 2: The Chaos Lord, is now available on Steam.

I’m just gonna cut to the chase and link to it here before commenting further:

Age of Fear 2: The Chaos Lord on Steam

Okay. So Age of Fear 2 is a single-player and multiplayer strategy game with RPG elements. Age of Fear 2 does away with hexes or squares, and uses a more organic form of positioning and distance calculations. In campaigns, your units have experience which carries over from battle to battle, allowing them to increase in skill RPG-style. There are random elements, so there are never any guarantees, and you always need to manage your risks. There are TONS of units and spells, and units are varied by strengths and weaknesses, so being prepared to take advantage of those can really make a difference.

The game is 25% off from now until April 3, so enjoy the launch discount.

However, if 25% off doesn’t quite do it for you, how about free? Leszek has donated several free copies for me to distribute. So if you are on Steam, you may have some cool opportunities. Here’s the deal:

#1 – It’s not a requirement, but if you win a free copy, please consider playing it soon and leaving a review on Steam.

#2 – I’m going to offer a few here, and a few on social media (Facebook and Twitter). Now, I suck at the social media thing, so please bear with me. I’ll provide instructions on the respective media, but you’ll want to follow me on Twitter at https://twitter.com/RampantCoyote and “Like” Rampant Games on Facebook.

#3 – Only one free copy per person, please. If you end up somehow getting two (because the contests are going to be going for a few hours), please do the cool thing and let someone else win the second copy.

Okay – for here, I’m just gonna have a drawing for three copies of the game. To qualify, simply post in the comments (if you already have the game and don’t want to be included in the drawing, please note at the beginning of the comment). You can comment on anything, but for the purpose of my own amusement (the most important reason of all!), feel free to respond to the following:

If you had to duel a dragon, what would be your choice of weapons, and why?

The more amusing responses will not get weighted any more heavily than any others, but you’ll definitely gain more cred… 🙂

Make sure your email address is valid in case you win, and I’ll be performing the drawing later this evening.

    To duel a dragon I’d choose … a Dragonlance, of course! 😀

    Dueling Dragons? C++. My STL and template-foo are weak, but dragons are so old-school they’ll be relying on the C standard library.

  • McTeddy said,

    It depends on whether it’s Boss Battle or not.

    – Normal Enemy: “Smoke Bombs” because they allow an automatic retreat.

    – Boss Fight: Fireproof suit… not that I expect it to do squat against the teeth, or claws, or tail, or… sigh…

    Anti-Materiel Rifle, because an assault rifle might not have enough power, and the AMR ought to have enough range for me to be at a safe distance away while picking it off.

    I’d go with a admantium-tipped (piercing bonus) fire-proof, heat-seeking missle launcher armed with an anti-magic bomb. Once that critter has no magic, the furnace inside him will cook him alive!

  • Cuthalion said,

    Wow, uh… that’s some cover art that game’s got there! But fantasy strategy games with tons of units and RPG elements are fun, so sounds cool!

    To duel a dragon, I’d choose pistols at dawn, of course. Doesn’t matter what you’re dueling; it’s the only right answer. Plus it’d be hilarious to see the dragon trying to hold a pistol. (And maybe it couldn’t, and I’d win.)

    Thank you for keeping me so amused today. I ran your names through a random number generator for the three winners … I wish I had enough for everyone (but for another chance, check out the facebook link before tomorrow evening!)


    Congrats! Emails should be in your inbox now!
