New Project - "The Miners" (2013-09-05)


Yeah I know. Last news posted here was almost 2 years ago. Game website looks like abandoned. But on the other hand, all information you would like to get about WoSaS is here. Nothing has changed inside the game. Of course I wasn't sitting with arms folded in last 18 months. Since December 2011 I'm working on a project called "The Miners". This game is inspired by Diggers - one of the best Amiga games released in 1993 by Millenium. Please visit below link if you would like to learn more about this project, which in my honest opinion, is much more polished than WoSaS.

WoSaS uploaded on Software Informer (2011-12-21

Hey! I have just received an email from Software Informer that they added my game to their database. This is another huge website providing information and links to WoSaS. Software Informer is on the list of the world's 500 most visited websites, and processes about 2,4 million clicks and welcomes over 700 000 unique visitors every day! Its database holds information about 2,3 million programs created by more than 550 000 developers. Wow! That is really impressive.

2011 Indie of the Year Awards - Final 100 (2011-12-20
)

Unfortunately, my game didn't collected enough votes to be one of the best 100 indie games published on Indie DB in 2011. However, I know that "Warriors" received lots of votes, and for that: thank you very much! Till now, 1,5 year after publication of first version of a game I receive many emails from players with very positive feedback regarding my game. These players are not looking for realistic 3D graphic, but for playability. I know that, hot-seat mode is very popular as it allows you to play with friends and even make small tournaments in autumn and winter evenings. This is motivating me to create another games, much better than this one. If I finish any other project I will let you know.

Thank you very much in advance! Indie of the Year Awards

WoSaS on cover-DVD (2011-09-05)

Great news (at least for me :))! WoSaS was added to cover DVD in freeware sections of magazines Chip Russia (issue 08/2011) and CD-Action Poland (issue 09/2011). Thanks to this my game has gained thousands of potential players! Wow! Besides, looking on a magazine where title of my game is printed makes me really happy. This also means (at least I think so) that work, which I have put into this game, has been appreciated by many people. And that's great!

--------------------------------------------------


Chip Russia award (2011-05-21)

Today I was informed that my game has received special award from Chip Russia! :D I'd like to say that I'm very happy and excited that my work was appreciated not only by members of indie games communities, but also by professional computer magazine. Thanks to this, game gained another well known and respected mirror, which I hope, will help it spread among Internet and reach more players, bored with commercial products. Thank you Chip Russia!

DX9 supported (2011-04-24)

Version 1.16b was added into download. It uses DX9, so framerate don't drop on bigger maps or on slower machines. Battles take less time, scrolling is much faster. If you have version 1.16 installed on your computer and have above described problems game update is very recommended.

--------------------------------------------------


Version 1.16 released (2011-03-15)

This version contains additional pictures between campaign missions, and new end campaign victory screen. Like the all other pictures, they were also manually drew by KAC. I think they will greatly increase atmosphere in the game. To update installed game, you have to unistall it and install new version. Your save games and campaign progress will be kept.

--------------------------------------------------


Version 1.16 is coming (2011-03-11)

KAC, author of pictures used in WoSaS, woke up from his winter sleep ;) and produced many graphics which I want to implement into the game. I think they will greatly increase atmosphere of the game. So, if you like graphic in main menu or after the missions, you should check this site in near future to get this "graphic pack". As for now technical fixes are not planned (no bugs reported).

--------------------------------------------------


English version finished (2011-03-05)

Finally, English version of a game is ready. I am not a linguist but I hope that texts are clear and you will understand them without any problems. If you will find some not translated texts please let me know. Of course download section was updated.

--------------------------------------------------


English version of a game (2011-02-20)

To allow game to expand it will be translated into English. I am working on this from some time and I am really close to finish it. Currently almost all game texts were changed. Still I have to translate briefings, tutorial and hot-seat descriptions. I cannot promise exactly date of release English version of a game, but what I can tell you, is that I am going to do this by the end of March (of course I will do my best to speed up the process).

--------------------------------------------------


Version 1.15 released (2011-02-04)

I was informed that there is a bug, by which some missions don't end after meet all objectives. This error was identified and removed. You can find updated version in download section.

--------------------------------------------------


Final version 1.14 released (2011-01-28)

Finally, version 1.14 of a game is ready. All known bugs and errors have been removed. Hot-seat mode was polished, and new maps were added. Complete list of changes may be found in version history file, after installing a game. As for now only polish version is available. You can get it in download section. Have fun! 

--------------------------------------------------


Website goes live (2011-01-08)

First version of "Warriors of Sword and Spell" website is working. It's not a masterpiece of webmaster art, but... it has everything what needed. As for now, there is only one thing to download - version 1.13b of a game (hotseat beta), but for sure there will be much more in the near future. Final version of a game is planned on January the 31st.
