As autumn gives its way to winter, the ground gets covered in snow, and daylight falters.

This new update to Wyrmsun makes a substantial addition to the game: the passage of seasons. Each of them lasts c. 15 minutes (so that 1 year = c. 1 hour) at the base game speed. Their effects are twofold: seasons can change the terrain (e.g. from grass to snow), and they affect the time of day schedule (with longer nights/shorter days during winter and the reverse during summer).

To celebrate the holidays, a Christmas hat item has been added to the game:

That is not all, however. Further content has been added to Wyrmsun:

  • A new major deity, Loki (available for the Dwarves and the Norse), which grants a 50% Backstab Bonus to axe and sword infantry and the Slow spell for priests.
  • The current "age" your faction is in (e.g. the Bronze Age) is now depicted at the top of the screen.
  • Times of day and seasons are now represented by icons at the top of the screen (hover the mouse over them to see the name of time of day / season).
  • Bats, blood bats and dread bats now have icons of their own, and are selectable.
  • New club weapon.

Many thanks to Jinn and Exidelo for their hard work on the graphics added in this update!

Merry Christmas to you all!
