News03 Apr 2016 BTBWe are proud to announce the release of Brave New World 1.7.0, by far the biggest update since it was initially released nearly three years ago. The primary features of this update are a new "esper bank" system that pretty much puts any issues of experience micro-management to rest, the addition of "restore points" in place of tents and sleeping bags, an overhaul of stamina and status ailments, major design tweaks to several skills, a large focus on quality-of-life changes based largely on community feedback, and MUCH more.
Once again, many thanks to all of you who helped beta test and continue to make Brave New World what it is today. I love each and every one of you.
15 Dec 2015 AdventAs some of you may know, we've had an up and coming Final Fantasy IV mod for a while, but now it finally has its own subforum!
Right now it's not indexed with the rest of our subforums due to lacking the art that only Archael can provide, but. You can access it here.
Be sure to leave feedback, and enjoy the mod!
15 Nov 2015 AdventSecret Santa 2015 is now under way! If you don't know, this is an event we've been doing for the last two years (this will be the third) where, as the name implies, everyone who participates gets their own secret santa. It's really fun.
Head on over to the General Discussion forum to check it out!
20 Apr 2015 ArchaelLast week, I'm sure you noticed that the site was going up and down constantly for no good reason. It appears that the server that Insane Difficulty is hosted on was targeted by a denial of service attack. The following is the info I received from our host.
There was route based DDOS attack which was resolved, You can find more info on our resolved network thread :
DFW Servers Packetloss

14 Feb 2015 BTBWe are proud to announce the release of Brave New World 1.6.0, the primary feature of which is a new hack that disassociates esper gains from traditional levels. This means that it's no longer advantageous to keep your levels low before espers are obtained and you don't really screw yourself over by grabbing a few extra levels early on.
As has been mentioned before (on several occasions, but we actually mean it this time), this is intended to be the mod's final release, barring any bugfix updates, until 2.0, which will be a significant change and is a very long ways off. For now, Synchysi and I would like take take a little break and wish to thank everyone of the Insane Difficulty community for their help, love, support, and occasional favors of a sensual nature.
