The Future

Sheep... ADOM is undergoing active development and I'm planning some great stuff (or so I hope ;-) for the future. ADOM 1.0.0 is out and there are some murky plans for the future... but things will happen as they happen, so let yourself be suprised. Never again will there be an ovrly ambitious release schedule that leads to a delay of more than 18 months. The following parts will be worked on in the future (among thousands):
  • Monster inventories will be completed during the 1.x.y release series.
  • A rewritten manual for more clarity, better cross-references and an easier way to get into the game.
  • More quests, monsters, items, spells and secrets.
And then? Maybe a larger wilderness, definitely a couple of new races for the player (hill dwarves, ratlings, mist elves), item descriptions and a lot more. Stay tuned!

The Design of Everyday Things Thomas Biskup recommends: The Design of Everyday Things
"I really believe that most software engineers think too little about the usability of their products. This book provides indepth thoughts on how to design usable items (not necessarily software) and how not to design usable tools. Many issues are adressed and the author shows a profound knowledge of the topics at hand (which is to be expected since he is teaching design for... many years). His writing is concise, yet humourous, which is a definite plus in my opinion. Every software engineer worth his money should be required to read this book! "

In Association with Amazon Please support this website by going to Amazon through one of the links on this website (if you want to shop at Amazon at all that is ;-). It doesn't cost you any surcharge, but provides me with ADOM-related income. Thanks!
