I did various improvements while planning, so I decided to add dark worlds and release the update. The launcher is gone for good, and settings are now in a text file instead of Windows registry. You’ll need to change them again if you’re updating since they’ll be reset to the defaults, but it’s only once [...]

So, here’s the serious change to the global gameplay. You won’t find spells in the worlds now, instead you can collect resources to craft them. I might add spells you can find later, but they’ll be very rare, and most likely hidden in some secret places and locked with puzzles. There’s also a tutorial now. [...]
I rewrote most of the world generation for this update. It’s now based around the gameplay needs. One can add a bunch of elements needed for the gameplay to the world and the system will build the terrain around that. I left the gameplay about the same for now, but I’ll change that with the [...]
The major feature of this update is saving/loading of worlds, with all monsters, objects, scripts etc. It took about a month this time, but there was no way to release half of it. The game is otherwise about the same, but feels a bit different anyway since you now keep your castles in every world [...]

Just a quick note that my move is done and I now live in Varna, Bulgaria. I started a company here to run all my business, and I’m now working on launching Arcane Worlds on Steam Early Access.
Another update is released, adding universe map, initial story mode with saved games, configurable controls and minor improvements. The universe is still lacking variety and interesting things, that’ll come in the next updates. In other news, I finally got my visa, so I’m moving with my wife and three cats to Bulgaria (from Russia). So [...]
