Silver Lemur Games announced that Legends of Amberland, its retro RPG will leave Steam Early Access on August 1, 2019. Legends of Amberland is a classic, retro RPG, just like the ones we all grew up with during the 90s.

According to the developer Chris Koźmik, “it’s aimed at all geezers with low reflexes (100% turn-based) and not much time anymore (no grind, fast-paced combat, quick inventory management, fast travel).” Basically for people who played those games back then, in the “good old times”, but don’t have that much time anymore because of kids and other obligations.

The game is trying to be faithful to the feel & spirit of the 90s era without the obscure annoying elements you probably forgot ever existed. It’s inspired by classics like Dungeon Master, Eye of The Beholder 2, Might & Magic 3-5, Crystals of Arborea and the GoldBox series (Champions of Krynn, Dark Queen of Krynn, etc). The game is trying to be faithful to the feel & spirit of the 90s era without the obscure annoying elements you probably forgot even existed. It also introduced some modern mechanics, but only to the extent that’s compatible with the spirit of the golden era of RPGs.

The final version will be quite similar to EA version except for finished all quests, NPCs, and items. Also rebalanced if EA proves rebalancing is needed. Some new locations will be also added. After release, there will be some minor/additional balancing updates, but always with great care to not break the gameplay. The might be also some interface improvements and other improvements not related to gameplay.
