Description

Barony is the premier first-person roguelike RPG, and is the first of its kind in that it fully supports cooperative multiplayer for up to four players. Developed by indie game studio Turning Wheel LLC, it was inspired by PC RPG classics of the past like Ultima Underworld, System Shock, Daggerfall and Nethack. Barony is also open source and features Workshop support for easy modding, and currently has two fantasy race and new class DLCs called "Myths and Outcasts" and "Legends and Pariahs," which are available for purchase.

History

Beginnings

Barony entered production on June 20th, 2013 and was developed solely by Sheridan Rathbun until an alpha build demonstrated the game's potential. A team of remote contributors grew around the project that fall, and over the next two years, they worked on the game as a labor of love until it was self-published through the Humble on April 4th, 2015. Subsequently the game was greenlit for release on Steam and was made available for purchase on June 23rd, 2015 to a very positive user reception.

Barony - Cursed Edition

The Cursed Edition of Barony, which features a brand-new art direction by Josiah Colborn, was released on February 18th, 2016. This version of the game also features new and improved levels and game mechanics, Steam matchmaking, and a host of other new features.

Barony - Blessed Addition

With the addition of another remote team member, hailing from Australia, Barony was able to continue expanding while some members of the team pursued future projects. On March 25th, 2018 the Blessed Addition was released, adding 50% more content to the game free of charge, including new classes, tilesets, monsters, audio and story with a new ending.
