After S2Games gave a group of volunteers permission to maintain and update “Savage 2 – A Tortured Soul” on their own – that team now released their second and third hotfix.

Here is what you can find in versions 2.1.0.4 and 2.1.0.5:

  • Two new maps (MirChul by Dark_Strider and Akamrostu by Envor)
  • Long overdue bugfixes (Sentry bats of the beast horde can now reveal electric eyes)
  • New Tutorial System to ease the learning curve for beginners
  • Eyecandy (spawn effects for hellbourne units, persitant items now summon a colored groundsprite effect for as long as their effects last)
  • and NUMEROUS bugfixes.

You can find the complete changelog here.

As a second important step Savage 2 is now also being hosted at Desura.

Desura  is a community driven digital distribution service for gamers – like you might know from Steam – but Desura already supports linuX and there are rumors that MAC might be included soon.

All this results in a slowly but steady increasing playerbase which will hopefully will help Savage 2 to get recognized by the masses.

Here is a short video what you can expect from Savage 2:
