You are caught and accused of the murder of Sir Edmund. A trial happens which determines whether you are set free or whether you end up in Jail. Being as you aren’t the one who did it, it becomes a search to find the true murderer, and the feud between the temple and the palace.
Beach map. You uncover more of the map as you explore.
Character Creation! Choose from male or female, from various hair styles/colors and initial items. Then a name.
A skippable intro!
Items you find in treasures and stores are all randomized. They vary greatly from playthrough to playthrough.
Battle system! Move your character close to the enemy so they can attack or use a spell. You can even hire a character to help if you find one.
You can create your character in the start. Being a roguelike, a lot of the elements are randomized. Where you go, what items you find in chests, how many chests appear in a floor, what items are sold in shops, all of that is randomized. While the areas you go to are randomized, the maps are hand designed with custom tiles.
NOTE: when selecting an item in the intro, press UP and then Z at the item.
In battle, you can move up to the enemy. Depending on what armor and what weapon you have will determine how many steps you can take and how long your weapon range is. You can hire a mercenary to join you temporarily, though they may leave after you fight the boss of the area.
You can move around up to the amount of steps you have. Press Z to bring up the attack cursor. If the enemy is in range, you can select them to attack. X to cancel out.
Press X while its your turn to bring up the submenu. You can use an item or spell (unless you have already attacked/used an item or spell in that turn), Pass your turn, Leave the battle (if you’re as far south in the battlefield as you can go or have defeated all the enemies), or view the enemy names.
You can hire a helper into battle too. So you go first, then your ally if you have one, then the enemies go.
This is an experimental game which I wanted to try when I saw the roguelike challenge!
