release notes

This includes the game engine, the world of Evergreen, Josh Worts' skin files and other artwork, world maps, quests, etc. It is the complete game. It's all you need!

If you are only one version behind:

Download and run the patch:

Click here to download the patch from the previous release of Well of Souls

PATCH: from ALPHA 96 to ALPHA 97
This patch can be applied to
version A96 only.

Patches contain files which have changed since the previous release and are not a complete game by themselves. If you just ran the installer, you do NOT need a patch. Be sure to shut down Well of Souls (and MIX) before attempting to patch it.

If you are more than one version behind:
  1. Download all the patches you think you need, save them somewhere.
  2. Run patches in order (shut down all other programs first)


You might be able to upgrade from your current version by applying one or more of these patches in order.

Honestly, though, it's probably easier to just run the full installer if you fall behind in your version.

Available Patches (click to download):

System Requirements:
  • Windows 95/98/NT/2000/Me/XP/etc
  • Pentium 90
  • 16M RAM (32M recommended)
  • DirectX (version 3 or higher)
  • Internet Explorer (for embedded web features)
  • 50 MB free hard drive space (more is better).
  • As with all windows applications, performance will be most improved by adding memory to your system. Memory is your friend, buy more today.

Well of Souls (the RPG) is the copyrighted property of Dan Samuel of Synthetic Reality Co. All rights reserved. While the game is free, I do appreciate voluntary donations to underwrite server costs.. For a $25 donation, you will receive a Golden Soul activation code.

People contributing Worlds will probably not see any return on their investment short of their credits (and my gratitude). My intention is for the game to make it easy to share worlds with friends. To the degree this web site can be used to facilitate that, I will make my own best effort. I will try not to exercise any censorship, but I might have to provide some sort of rating system for worlds deemed to contain offensive content. Please read the game's Terms of Service when you install the game. And thanks again, Josh!

Let me know what you like, what you hate, what you'd like to see, and any other feedback you might have. I'm not in any rush to finish this. It will be done when it is done.

Thanks again!
