Walk blessed!
Looking back SureAI has experienced a lot of change. Starting in 2003, SureAI was known for TES-mods like Arktwend, Nehrim and of course Enderal. Today we celebrate the 18th anniversary of SureAI. Looking forward new changes await yet again. We will see you there.



In 2003 SureAI has started out as a mod developer for The Elder Scrolls. Instead of small additions to the gameplay SureAI has focused on developing so called total conversions. With the use of base game content we created distinct gameplay and unique stories.

The journey began with the first major total conversion for The Elder Scrolls: Morrowind: Arktwend. It was the entry into the world of Vyn. For the Oblivion the total conversion Nehrim followed and finally for Skyrim the biggest project yet: Enderal.



Enderal was concluded with the release of Forgotten Stories and eventually the release of the Enderal Special Edition for Skyrim SE. Since then SureAI has treaded an uncharted path.

With SureAI now having ambitions to become a full game developer with our own IPs and technology we've been working on our next big project for almost 3 years now. New faces were introduced to our team having fresh input and bringing new ideas.



But this doesn't mean that SureAI will forget about its roots. Thrilling stories and bewitching worlds will remain the core of our major projects. To overcome future challenges we will need your support. Thus we hope you will stay at our side for the next years to come.

Walk blessed …

… as a restaurant server!

While we’re working on our next major project, we’re glad to announce the release of Mad Restaurant People (re-opened).

Progress your career as a waiter by using your keen perception, your short-term memory and your ability to decide quickly. Fancy and unique places will hire you as you master challenges, unlock perks and stay calm even in the weirdest situations.

Be prepared to fight the elements (kitchen fires), evade zombies (drunk guests), tame monsters (hungry dogs) and survive a genuine robot invasion.

We are certainly aware that you are waiting for another SureAI game set in a world full of mysteries, haunting stories, memorable characters and deep lore. It’s in the making, but it will take time, and if you’d like to support us and have a fun time meanwhile, check out Mad Restaurant People (re-opened) on Steam and our webseite.

Walk blessed,

the new patch 1.6.4.0 is now available! This patch will be the final one for Enderal, because we no longer have the amount of free time we used to have to keep on patching it! This also means that we will not create a port for Skyrim Special Edition.

SureAI is currently working on a new, commercial project which will hopefully be announced this year. So stay tuned for news and keep an eye on our social media channels.

Twitter: https://twitter.com/SureAITeam
Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/SureAI
Discord: https://discord.com/invite/jkSXNgsHNt
Furthermore, the Korean localization is now available on Steam.

Steam will automatically download and install this patch for the English and German version. It needs to be translated for other localizations of the game (currently Simplified Chinese, Italian, Russian, French, Spanish, Japanese and Korean) and it will be available as soon as the responsible translation teams finished their work.

Be careful, the patch notes contain spoilers to some extent.

Thanks to community member overdev who provided fixes to this patch.

Stay safe and have fun playing!

Tech:
  • Fixed that the damage dealt by the talent Archaic Might was reduced by armor directly, very often resulting in dealing 0 damage on the highest talent rank.
  • (Set of the Tracker) Fortune of the Tracker now properly increases Rhetoric when being worn.
  • Disenchanting Sublime Garments now grants the proper enchantment.
  • Fixed that some bows would disappear when they were dropped from the inventory.

Sound:
  • Fixed two sound files.

UI:
  • Fixed various typos.

"A bizarre mission to travel into a dying man's nightmares forces a drifting veteran to confront his own trauma."

Walk blessed,

It's time: after two years, twelve rewrites, and the messy nightmare that was 2020, my debut novel Dreams of the Dying is now available, at a special Christmas price of $2.99 (eBook), $16.99 (paperback), and $35.99 (illustrated hardcover). Head to my website to learn more about the story, read a free sample, or grab a copy.

Please don't buy any books from Amazon OUTSIDE of the official listing linked on my website. If you see a cheaper (or pricier) version of the hardcover or the paperback on Amazon, they're placeholders sold by 3rd party sellers.

If this is your first time hearing of this book, Dreams of the Dying is a blend of fantasy, mystery, and psychological horror, and it explores themes like mental illness, greed, and morality. It takes place in Kilay, a tropical island archipelago in the universe of Vyn. Reviewers described the novel as “Inception in a Polynesian-inspired fantasy setting.”

Years after a harrowing war experience, ex-mercenary Jespar Dal’Varek has taken to drifting. It’s a lonely existence, but barring the occasional bout of melancholia, he has found the closest thing to peace a man like him deserves. Life is “all right.”

Or so he believes. Hoping to turn the page, Jespar accepts a mysterious invitation into the beautiful but dangerous archipelago of Kilay—and everything changes. Plagued by boiling social tensions and terrorism, the tropical empire is edging ever closer to civil war. Kilay’s merchant king is the only person able to prevent this catastrophe, but he has fallen into a preternatural coma—and it’s Jespar’s task to figure out what or who caused it. As the investigation takes him across the archipelago and into the king’s nightmares, unexpected events not only tie Jespar’s own life to the mystery but also unearth inner demons he believed to be exorcised long ago.

Battling old trauma while fighting for his life, his sanity, and the fate of Kilay, the line between dream and reality blurs until only one question remains: If your mind is the enemy, where do you run?

A slow-burning, riveting blend of fantasy, mystery, and psychological horror, Dreams of the Dying is a deep exploration of mental illness, morality, and the dark sides of humanity.

This is a heavily revised edition of a web novel I published throughout 2019, with an improved plot and character arcs, a new ending, countless cuts, and several new chapters, as well as vastly improved writing. It explores Jespar’s past as a mercenary, but opens up a new canon, so anything can happen – more on that in the foreword.

Since I’ve financed this entire project on my own and with the help of my patrons, I have no big publisher backing me, and visibility is critical. For this reason, I’m extending my poster promotion – leave me an honest review of Dreams on Goodreads or Facebook, and you get a free poster.

The book is currently available in English only, but German, Russian, Spanish, Polish, and Hungarian translations are on the way. I’m also working on an audiobook of the revised edition, narrated by Benjamin Britton and Joe Hernandez with music by Marvin Kopp, but there is no release date yet.

Let me close with a big thanks to everyone who supported me, whether through Patreon or simply by voicing your encouragement and interest. Dreams started out as a side thing, but it turned into my passion project. From research into medieval sword fighting, psychology, and geology, to a full language designed by a professional linguist, I really gave this project my all. It burnt my savings, but I have no regrets. Let’s hope the story lives up to your expectations.

Best,

Nicolas
