Forums will be archived?
Does this mean you are closing them entirely? Or will there be a "new" forum?

It's likely that indefinitely, the forums will be no more.  :'(

Other things will pop up, or be supported moreso in it's place, but not in forum format, at least for the immediate future.


Build Notes / Release - May Update [Steam] Build Notes
« on: May 24, 2018, 02:55:47 PM »


New Cards:
  • Betty’s Bargain Brews
  • Simeon’s Arms
New House Rules
  • Mirror World - One quarter of the map is mirrored across all other quarters, ensuring that every hero starts with identical tiles around their clan grounds.
  • Hero AP (+1, +2)
  • The Forest Sister
  • The Magenta/pink bolt-ons are finally gone!
  • Scout correctly ends after dying with sailor’s lantern.

Howdy Penna! This isn't a bug, to get a Rot victory you need to defeat the King using his Rot, but in order to do that you need to have more rot than the King, equal Rot doesn't cut it unfortunately.

Armello Development / The April Update is Live!
« on: April 27, 2018, 04:03:43 PM »

Hello everyone!

The time has finally come, the April Update is Live NOW! If you’re the type of person who likes to dig straight into the build notes, you can find them in all their glory here.

Let’s run through all of the features that this release brought for you.

Mercurio’s story - The Grinning Blade is now out.

You can get this novella at Skeeve’s shop, where he’s giving it out for free (what a deal). Once collected, navigate to the Novella in your inventory to give it a read.

Our detailed post about the novella can be found here.

Probably the most exciting part of this update - the changes to the Explode Pool.

Each hero’s Explode Pool is now equal to their Spirit stat. If you’re Corrupted, your explode pool is based on the Rot value and not your Spirit. As a result some of the cards have been changed and new cards have been added.

Our post describing the mechanics of the explode pool and our motivation behind this decision is here.

We have added 2 new cards to the game to complement the changes to the explode pool - Blackberry Dust and Mahogany Stuff.

Blackburry Dust gives you +1 to Health and Magic but takes away 2 from the explode pool.

Mahogany Stuff is an equipable item that gives +1 to Spirit and adds +1 to explode pool.

Full description of the cards and their effects can be found in our post here.

Below is the list of the known bugs that might affect some players:
  • In-game inventory might not reflect items you have but Steam will show them correctly
  • Decay Amulet might apply damage incorrectly based on your rot level
  • Pink (some say magenta) skins are still there. This colour is all the rage this season.
  • King might not have Voice Over in the beginning of the game
This about wraps it up. Go ahead and try it out for yourself, hopefully we have covered everything in this post but as usual, your feedback is always welcome!

Mmmmmuch love,

<3 Darcy & the LoG Team

General Discussion / Re: Armello for Android
« on: April 09, 2018, 04:05:28 PM »
Heyo! Not sure what's going on with that @Sketch, bummer to hear you've got issues.

As for Android, the plan is to get it out later this year so that's where we're at!


General Discussion / Re: Rivals for X-Box One?
« on: April 06, 2018, 04:09:48 PM »
Who's Davey? lol.

We can't confirm a date because it's not entirely up to us. We have to submit the build to the console holders for review and it can be accepted at their discretion. All we can say is that we're hard at work with it.

General Discussion / Re: Unfair steam market hold! Help LoG!
« on: April 04, 2018, 03:34:18 PM »
Hi! Yeah this is totally not something that we can help with. Steam call the shots in regards to this and they are rules that exist beyond just Armello. Hope you understand!

Heyo mog, try the steps included in this thread and let us know how you go!


<3 Darcy

Thanks for letting us know Sim! We're aware of this one and a fix is incoming.


Bugs! / Re: Issue Loading the Game
« on: March 27, 2018, 04:12:20 PM »
Heyo Wombatlove thanks for hitting us up. We are aware of this issue and we're working on it - unfortunately there are no current workarounds. We've got a potential fix coming in the next few days so hopefully that sorts it out.

Apologies about the bug!
