Amplitude’s Endless Sale Ends In Six Hours

By Adam Smith on December 18th, 2014.

One of the year’s Bestest Best Games is currently discounted by 50% on Steam. The game is Endless Legend, Amplitude’s superb 4X fantasy game, and it’s currently £13.49, but only until 6pm GMT. The discounts extend to all three of the studio’s releases, so you can also grab debut title Endless Space and this year’s brilliantly inventive roguelike door defense thing Dungeon of the Endless for £4.99 each. There’s also a bundle with all three plus DLC for £30.49. If you need to know more, our reviews of Dungeon and Legend are here to help, and Jim and I wrote about Endless Legend as part of our December festivities.

The Bestest Best 4X Of 2014: Endless Legend

By RPS on December 8th, 2014.

Amplitude have released two games this year and either one would be deserving of a place in this bestest best December round-up. Dungeon of the Endless can slumber on in cryosleep for now though because it’s time to sing the praises of Endless Legend, the finest 4X game of recent times.

Adam: Science fiction, fantastic factions.

Free Add-Ons Out For Endless’s Legend And Space

By Graham Smith on November 27th, 2014.

Adam reported on Endless Legend‘s free add-on Visions of the Unseen last week, but now it’s out, we know the details of what it contains, and it comes alongside a smaller but similarly free add-on for Amplitudes previous 4X strategy game, Endless Space. Visions of the Unseen? More like posts of the seen, right?

Right.

No End In Sight: Endless Legend Free Expansion

By Adam Smith on November 19th, 2014.

Amplitude are having a very good year. The studio’s debut release, Endless Space, was a good 4X game but the follow-up, Endless Legend, is a great 4X game. I’m fairly sure there hasn’t been a better release in the genre this year. Along with that, there’s Dungeon of the Endless, a smart cocktail that contains a dash of roguelike, a splash of tower defence and several fingers of cunning twists.

Endless Legend, as you might expect given the name, isn’t quite done yet. A second free add-on has just been announced. It’s called Visions of the Unseen and the first details are below.

Endless Legend More Endless With Modding Tools

By Graham Smith on October 29th, 2014.

Endless Legend isn’t quite as big a misnomer as the Neverending Story, but it still seemed likely that you’d eventually grow tired of playing campaigns in the inventive 4X strategy game. Today’s announcement may yet stave of the cartoon lawyers, as modding tools are coming which will let you create and tweak factions, skills, items and damn near everything else.

Wot I Think: Endless Legend

By Adam Smith on October 1st, 2014.

A cursory glance might lead you to believe that Endless Legend is a duck. In this instance, Civilization V is the Platonic ideal of the duck and that brief glimpse of Endless Legend shaking its tailfeather might be enough to convince you that it looks like a duck, swims like a duck and quacks like a duck. Closer investigation reveals something altogether different though. Sure, it has feathers and you’re likely to find it paddling around and flashing its bum at the world while it grabs something to eat, but Endless Legend might be best thought of as a swan in a pond full of ducks.

Either that or it’s Howard the Duck. Here’s wot I think.

Endless Legend’s Early Access Not Endless, Ends Soon

By Ben Barrett on September 11th, 2014.

DRAGONS? I wanna play these guys.

The three-game Endless universe and its interconnecting lore is one of my favourite games-related tidbits right now. Amplitude Studios’ two in-development games, Endless Legend–a fantastical grand strategy–and Dungeon of the Endless–a roguelike dungeon crawling/tower defense–are both prequels to Endless Space. It all ties together wonderfully, with monsters from Dungeon being minor races in Legend, some of whom have become playable factions by Space. While Dungeon is still wandering the halls of Early Access, Legend is launching onto Steam proper on September 18th.

The Lighthouse Customer: Endless Legend

By Christopher Livingston on May 19th, 2014.

We're like velociraptors, but we all attack together from the front.

Each Monday, Chris Livingston visits an early access game and reports back with stories about whatever he finds inside. This week, monster-based monster strategy with monsters in Endless Legend.

Crystalline giants march from the east, painted ogres advance from the south, and slithering snake-monsters, a two-headed jackal tribe, and hovering spectral warriors in tattered cloaks appear regularly outside my city. I’ve been battling monsters for hours, now, and I’m frustrated. Not by the combat itself, but by the nature of the enemy. I don’t want to kill monsters. I want to kill humans, because I’m a monster myself.

Endless Endlessness Pt 2: Dungeon Of The Endless

By Nathan Grayson on August 24th, 2013.

What was behind the door? More doors, basically.

The endless endlessness, it never ends! In the beginning, there was Endless Space, and it was endlessly space-y. Recently, we also told you of Endless Legend, which is another 4X strategy set in the same universe, only all fantasy-fied. But let’s not forget about Dungeon of the Endless, which Amplitude teased shortly before getting sucked into the time-distorting, endlessly cacophonous Gamescom hypehole. At that point, all we had to go on was a rather painfully un-endless trailer, which cut off right before we found out what was HASHTAG BEHIND THE DOOR WOOOOOOO. But now… oh, now we know. And I can guarantee that you will be shocked and surprised probably.

Endless Endlessness Pt 1: Endless Legend

By Nathan Grayson on August 24th, 2013.

What the gray cave troll thing lacks in size, he makes up for with moxy.

Welcome. Welcome to the beginning of endless endlessness. Well, OK, I suppose the endless nature of this endlessness technically started with Endless Space, Amplitude’s rock-solid, ox-strong 4X space strategy. Now, however, the developer with Xs for eyes (they’re not unconscious; their eyes are literally the letter X) is headed in a markedly different direction with Endless Legend, a 4X fantasy about magic, discovery, and an impending, inexplicable apocalypse. It takes place in the “Endless universe,” so I guess that makes it a prequel? Or maybe a bunch of space ships will crash into your bustling metropolis at the last possible second, revealing that the two games were coexisting the entire time.
