Development History / Background:

Sins of a Dark Age was developed by the Canadian game developed Ironclad Games, the same Ironclad Games known for developing Sins of a Solar Empire. The game is powered by the Iron Engine, a proprietary game engine used in both Sins of a Dark Age and Sins of a Solar Empire. Sins of a Dark Age was first announced on February 21, 2012 and the game entered into early access beta on March 17, 2014. Early access lasted about a year until the game officially launched on Steam on May 8, 2015. Like Strife and League of Legends, Sins of a Dark Age allows players to customize their heroes outside of the game, but instead of through runes/masteries or crafting, the game uses treasures and ability points. Sins of a Dark Age shut down on March 30, 2016.

  • A lot of Western companies are trying to develop their own MOBAs to compete with League of Legends and Dota 2. The premise in Sins of a Dark age is actually quite good. Being able to customize your hero with gear outside the game is unique. The objectives are dynamic and interesting too. The average Sins of a Dark Age game length is a bit longer than other MOBAs though.
