Beautiful. Please make another soon.

I’ve played both this and the first game several times. I’m so picky and think most games these days are unbelievably underwhelming. But this series is truly incredible. I wouldn’t change anything at all. Just immaculately done. Second one was even better than the first and I’m constantly checking to see when there will be a third installment. I will just give you the money now for it so I can play it right away after you release it. I am a monstrously difficult sell with phone games. This has been weighed and measured and found to be exceptional by all metrics, surpassing expectations in such a grand way that Eldrum is my new measuring stick for games of this type.

Hey! Thank you so much for the kind words. Really heartwarming to read. I’ve even shared it with the rest of the team. And yes - there will be a third installment. Just follow us and we’ll keep you posted :) Best, Adam

Good game, short

The immersion of this mostly text based adventure is great. It is short for my taste, but there are many secrets to work out. There are multiple solutions to problems. For a minor spoiler: to get past the 1st part you need a team of 4 people to guard a caravan. You can hire mercenaries, get the militia to help, get knights to help, or find 4 on your own. I have been able to find 3 of the 4. I’m guessing the 4th was someone who didn’t want to go because my Charisma wasn’t high enough to convince. It doesn’t change much, just adds a footnote to the end stories.

Based off my experience, if you want to wear most equipment, a strength of 5 is sufficient. Perception should be around 5 to hit really annoying enemies. Ranged weapons are a godsend. Especially when the strong enemy is behind a wall of 3 weaker ones. Just fire at back row. Front will do negligible damage, if any. After they are dealt with, swap to melee and enjoy. Also, the most valuable item you can find is the lock pick. It will open many doors (and chests) for you.

I’m currently trying to figure out how to placate a demon. I’m sure it will take multiple tries to see what he wants. I had fish, forgot to bring dog meat. Looking forward to trying and failing before I hit the “help I’m stuck” button.

Seemed Promising…..Yet

So at first this seemed very promising. It was a good story and your choices actually mattered. Then it comes time where the free story ends and you have to pay. Okay….I ended up buying the full game and I wish I hadn’t. I was severely disappointed at how it ended. Sitting here spending all this time making choices and planning, only to find that all the good and materials you collect at the end literally mean nothing. When it comes time for the final fight and choices, it legit was one of the worst endings there was. I had finally collected enough coin and such to actually make a difference, and then it goes into the final battle where you don’t have any warning or any hints about it being the last one. Then it comes and goes and you have all this script and writing. Instead of writing that all out, I would have actually enjoyed playing through it instead of reading about it. I would not recommend that you but the full game. It seriously isn’t worth it and will leave you disappointed.
