I am finding it terribly hard not to be overly excited about this.
Hey! I got some new screenshots showing the interface. This is how the treasury screen will look like in the game - this is where heroes can purchase, store and repair their equipment. It's not final though.
And this is where you hire heroes:
I'd like to know what you think of these :)
One suggestion that I have read somewhere else. One square slot per item devaluates their "awesomeness", if a piece of cheese takes up as much space as a battleaxe. I am not saying you should make a Diablo inventory, but maybe use up some space to show a picture for the item category (god I should do a mockup) like a preview. Not one per item but one per category, it still gives the feeling of power with weapons instead of numbers in a square.
They look great. The fog of war screenies look very good. I don't mind the inventory as it is a treasury, so you don't want it to be full with only a couple of battle axes, so one square per item, kinda works.
If we could play it now, we could tell you more about how it looks in action ;)
Having weapons or items take up multiple inventory slots also makes less sense at the macro level than at the micro level. If you're playing as one or a handful of characters, limits relative to item size is one possible approximation of real life limits. If you're playing the commander of an army, just assume one of your minions is carrying the apple of nothingness for you until the time you need it. You don't need to know who is carrying it or why. You just need to know you have it and can use it.
I'd like to let you know that we use color differentiation for items in the game and there’re sets of them too. Most of the items are “white” but there’re colored ones. It’s mainly made for people who want every item they have to be the best. After all it’s a strategy game.
I should also note that it’s possible to be defeated by a commander without any items at all but with a powerful and experienced army.

I also got some updates :)
We finally launched our new official site where you'll be able to find latest media and information on the game. I post most of it here anyway but still :)
And we made a little gameplay trailer. It's available on Gametrailers and on YouTube.
Apologies for this, but:
Very very pretty :)
Any updates on this?
In the meanwhile, we submitted Eador to Steam Greenlight. So if you guys want to see the game there please upvote it. Thanks in advance :)
Upvoting right now.
This looks absolutely fantastic.
Thanks for your input :)
I doubt that something of such obvious quality will need Greenlight to get onto Steam, but voted for it anyway.
