Description

Barony is a 3D, first-person roguelike developed by an indie game company called Turning Wheel LLC. It is inspired by PC RPG classics of the past, including Ultima Underworld, System Shock, Daggerfall, and Nethack. The goal of the game is to descend to the bottom of a dark dungeon known as the Devil's Bastion and destroy an undead lich named Baron Herx, who terrorized the peaceful town of Hamlet in life and is now harboring a curse against the land from beyond the grave. To aid you in your quest are friendly humans who have been eeking out a rough life within the dungeon for generations, as well as any friends you can bring with you in real life: Barony is the first of its kind as a first-person roguelike in that it fully supports cooperative multiplayer for up to four players.

History

Beginnings

Barony entered production on June 20th, 2013 and was initially developed in isolation by Sheridan Rathbun until a team started to grow around the project in the fall of 2013. Over the next two years, this team worked on the game purely out of passion until the game was self-published through Humble on April 4th, 2015. Over the next two months, the game was then greenlit for release on Steam and rereleased to that platform 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.
