Sorry, but difficulty level has nothing to do with this. Even the tutorial is just
unplayable in the sense of "hey every opponent will one-shot you" kind of diffculty.
The developers explained in the discussion forum how to act on those kind of
enemies - imho did they plan\/implement it the right way? No.
Having to save characters constantly afte being one-shotted, being it a "unconscious" state
or being completey dead makes no difference here - is just bad gameplay.
True tactics can only come into play if you have more than a binary state of your characters.
Sorcerer are on level 1 not even able to use a range spell? Well... what?
Refund.. Great game if you are a gridder fan. Great brutal combat, There is some grinding here, but doesn't detract from the overall gameplay. Great job on the developers' part on getting some quick fixes out there on some minor bug fixes.
Having fun and taking me back in time. Love it.. Great game by a great developer! I'm looking forward to the next one!. Short: Recommendation bonus if you enjoy 80's style grid-based RPGs such as the early Wizardry and Might and Magic series or if you enjoy games with that retro feel such as Dark Spire or Class of Heroes 2G. If this is unfamiliar, then read on to see if this game may be a good fit for you.
Warning: The game is untraditionally balanced and is not for everyone. If you go in with modern RPG expectations and are unwilling or unable to adapt, you will be disappointed and\/or frustrated with this game. This game will slap this expectation in the face in the first couple encounters. You can reduce the probability of luck playing a role in your victories by grinding some, but this game presents many tools in combat and many encounters are like tactical puzzles that you'll need to solve before you can survive consistently.
I'm still playing through this game and am deeply appreciative of the developer's responsiveness and taking into consideration suggestions and tweaks. I look forward to future products that they produce.
Noting points, whether they are pluses for some, minuses for others or neutrals.
* Use a full-sized keyboard and mouse to control the game with nearly every option accessible by a key alone
* Keybindings cannot be reassigned at this time, so a mouse is strongly recommended if you do not have a full-sized keyboard with number pad for the NumPad Plus or NumPad Minus to adjust attributes at creation and level ups
* If you're using a gamepad emulator such as Pinnacle Game Profiler or Xpadder, I would recommend assigning to WASD (or QZSD) for movement and mouse controls at a minimum ~ other options such as Escape, Enter, as well as the letters A through D may be convenient as well
* There does not seem to be a strafe option at this time, but can get through without it
* Create up to twelve adventurers, deploy six party members at a time including one that looks kind of like an Arnold-style Conan
* Choose from one of six classes (knight, paladin, archer, thief, priest, sorceror) with one of four races (human, elf, dwarf, gnome), one of four face portraits per race and gender combo and assign attribute points among seven attributes
* Level ups have random health and spell point gains based on influencing stat, allow for three attribute points to be assigned, and award new skills or spells depending on the class
* Options to quick save and load in most locations on most screens
* Navigate first-person through dungeons, moving one square on the map grid a time, engaging in combat and dialogue, managing party and inventory
* Combat options allow for moving party members into or out of melee range individually or all at once, waiting or protecting allies, using melee or ranged attacks, using spells, fleeing, using other abilities and possible others that I'm forgetting - to succeed in this game, it is strongly recommend to take advantage of as many of these options as possible while adapting to enemy tactics
* Combat is turn-based with each character taking a turn per round with the ability to postpone their turn toward the end of the round
* At least 50 save slots in-game, if not more
* Sound effects match most actions
* The music has been intermittent in my game, such as a discovery scene, quest reward scene or the sound of a battle that just turned grim
* Occasional game crashes and bugs, but the developer has been communicating regularly with the community and addressing these issues
Aspects that I enjoyed\/opinionated in addition to the above points:
* Enjoyable art style with realistic art for most portraits and strong contrast on most other aspects that may have a comic-book feel for some
Untraditional Balance and Modern RPG Expectations Expounded:
* The beginning area is a tutorial area with shockingly high damage values, however, once you adapt to the mechanics, you may be able to easily run through this beginning area without any deaths or the need to save (though saving is recommended in case of an unexpected crash) -- armor does make a difference, but most importantly, positioning can prevent enemies from attacking altogether
* Dipping your toes into the next area can lead to brutal defeats and force you to scrounge for all your options to counter fear, counter silence on your casters, denying archers clean shots to your healer, changing your leader to a faster character to order people into a safer position or sometimes going as far as leveling a new party member to counter situations in those areas
* Sorcerors in most fantasy games have easy access to ranged attack spells - this is not initially true and sorcerors may fare better in melee range until you have more runes or until you're a higher level where you do have those rune-free ranged attack spells
* Initial combat positioning is not static and misreading a situation can and will get you killed - do not assume that your character in the bottom portraits is out of melee range, double check their movement choices and portrait for cues
* Mostly nude outline of a spirit woman with no nipples and some enemies in busty garments
* Some art with female cleavage - do not recall if there are any bare chested men or man nipples
* Random chance of fighting some violent leopards and you may need to kill them or reload if you do not like hurting animals, even virtual ones
* Lots of brawling in the streets and in different establishments
* Ability to break into a woman's home where she sits up in bed startled... just before returning somethings precious to her
* Well drawn undead and some scenes depicting villagers being terrorized may instill images of unrest in some
. I admit it does need a bit of tweaking at the start, but I like that it is hard, I do not think this will be for everyone, but for us older gamers it is a nice ride back to the past when games did not hold your hand.. Just finished this game. It was great. Coming from old school gaming this brought back many memories. Would highly recommend this if turn base RPG is your thing. I also appreciate the game maker being active on the forum for questions. I will definately be buying any follow up games.. This is one of the best old school, turned based RPG that I have played for years.
BTW, I am an older gamer that has been playing RPGs for the last 35+ years, starting from Wizardy 1 in 1980. I played all the Wizardrys, Ultimas, Bard Tales and Might & Magic Series.
This game reminds me of all those past games that I have played in the past with its square grid layout and its very engaging storyline. You can also have a team of 6 different members and there are 6 different classes each with very different and unique skills. This game is also slightly different than most normal RPG in that Sorcerers need to collect Runes to cast spells, and Priests needs to prepare a supply of Holy Water. Of course you also need to be near some water supply like Stream or Lake so you can have access to water. It is little things like this that makes the game more interesting and different.
The developer also put in a lot of effort into creating different kind of dungeons with different mechanics and behavior that are uniquely distinctive. For example, in the Water Realm, there are currents and you get swept away to different location based on the current. In the Air Realm, you will fall to your death, and can only teleport to certain location using a transdisplacer device. In Earth Realm you might have to re-materialized behind the rock to discover new tunnels, etc. In Fire you have constant Inferno effect damaging you with every move and lots of other surprises.
I love games with Steam Achievements, and it is possible to get all 20\/20 steam achievements in a single playthrough. I spend about 70 hours in a single playthrough. This game especially reward grinding and have monsters that repopulate so that you can grind till your heart content. You also get decent drops and experienes through grinding too.
Overall, I loved this game and would highly recommend it to any old school RPG gamers. Its definitely worth the money spent.
