[edit] Description

ADOM II: Legends of Ancardia, powered by JADE (Java-based Ancient Domains Engine), is a next-generation roguelike by Thomas Biskup and the official successor to ADOM. ADOM II is Java application, so it is very portable. It is set in the same world as ADOM, many years after the original game's events. The official ADOM II website and blog chronicles the development and new features in ADOM II.

ADOM II is under development. Version 0.1.0 (then named JADE) was released on 2 July 2011 at the www.ancientdomainsofmystery.com website, and screenshots, a video and some javadoc documentation are availiable on its homepage and through the author's blog.

With the release of JADE 0.2.0 Thomas Biskup considered JADE to be a fully playable game (albeit a simple one compared to ADOM). Starting with version 0.2.3 JADE has been rebranded as ADOM II: Legends of Ancardia.
