Great news: Maruziel is about to raid france!

Published on January 8, 2018

Dans quelques jours, Silversword va paraître en français.

And along with this update (2.6.3) there will be some major adjustments to the game mechanics:

  • limited supply of armour and weapons in the starting area
  • monk’s chain attack ability adjusted
  • hopefully (still has to be done) the Hesitation spell revamped
  • combat adjustments for groups with less than seven members

Stay tuned!

Happy holidays!

I wish you all a merry christmas and a fantastic new year! And if you’re getting bored, fire up a challenging Silversword game and see how far you can get with only a thief and a paladin 🙂

What we do for christmas…

Published on December 8, 2017

While my wife is working on the french translation of Silversword, I shoot many photos on Tenerife which perfectly fit into the story that the Flooded Island will unfold. Do you have any special wishes for the next expansion? Just write me an email or post it on our forums. Promised: I read all posts 🙂

News from the past

Published on October 9, 2017

I am very happy that Burger Becky (Rebecca Heineman) is really working on a remastered edition of the classic Bard’s Tale games.

Chances are that we might see a mobile version, for converting the existing C++ / Assembler Code to XCode/iOS can be done (by her – she told me 😉 ).

In the meantime, I am trying to get the Flooded Isles crowded with creatures, stories and riddles (for your gaming pleasure).

Thank you all for enjoying the game 🙂

Happy Birthday Silversword!

Published on February 13, 2017

Six candles burn on the tasty cake that was made out of many ingredients such as devotion, love and tons of feedback from you, my dear player!

Thank you very much!

As of today, the game version is 2.58 – which means that Silversword was improved many times during the last years. I have tried to implement many of your wishes, and I think it’s still worth playing – because there ain’t no other Bard’s Tale Clone in the App Store 🙂

Of course, it would be very great if someone would dedicate some more time to the Wikipedia articles (english + german) but I try to be humble. At least, a Wikipedia article does exist – and this is a kind of accolade for me. So thank you again for your support! I will continue working on the game. No voice is unheard, please continue giving me input through the official forums.

Yours
Mario

Happy Holidays in Tarnak!

Published on December 6, 2016

Thank you very much for another great Silversword year, my dear fans of classic CRPG!

And while you surely will escape the ice and snow by visiting Inferno once again, I am working on the Flooded Isles. The major storyline develops, and new maps, monsters and items are already implemented. You really shouldn’t throw your seashells away…

Best wishes
Mario

Captured by orcs

Published on August 9, 2016

I know, you deserve an update! I am very sorry, but I was captured by a horde of orcs that roamed some medieval/fantasy festivals here in Germany. Being held captive, I couldn’t send some news to the outside world. But it seems that the orcs grow weaker (and more drunk) every week – so hopefully I will escape soon. In the meantime, I scribbled some new maps for the Heritage Expansion and smuggled more Trooper Beer (bribe) in my cell when some friendly orc guard gave me a day off at W:O:A.
