New Update 2.4.1

Published on March 11, 2014

The actual update brings some bug fixes and a small new feature: by touching the character portrait, you can now select a custom image from your photo gallery. Caution: Transparency won’t work. If you want a transparency effect, you have to modify the custom picture by yourself. You can download it, modify, and upload it again via iTunes App Sharing. The pictures are named after the corresponding character. When renaming a character, you will also have to rename the picture if you want to keep it.

Sneak Peek – Beyond the Bard’s Tale

Published on December 18, 2013

bard_xmasIt’s time to once more add new features to Silversword, to enhance your Bard’s Tale adventure spirit. Things to come (after christmas, with the next update): Weaknesses and immunities to certain elements like fire, ice, poison, divine magic etc. — this should make some challenges more interesting and give me more opportunities of adding new spells. In addition, some more creatures are waiting for you on yet uncharted lands… happy holidays and best wishes for 2014!

Thank you for your support
Yours faithfully
Mario

P.S. Title edited due to lacking english knowledge *shame*

New lands…

Published on December 9, 2013

Lisa blinked and rubbed her eyes. Something was sparkling in the sand. Carefully, she reached down and grabbed the thing. A gold coin! She quickly looked around, then she cleaned the coin in the fabric of her dress. There was a ship on the front side, and the outline of a head on the back. Lisa could not see any details, because sea and sand had rubbed the coin.
She looked across the sea. A sudden longing seized her and pulled her into the distance. Did she just see dark shadows on the horizon? Shadows of palm trees, mysterious forests and mountains? Unexplored caves with sparkling beads and treasures waiting for her.
But she had to hurry, otherwise the others would probably be faster and she would once more be the poor silly girl.
Yes, this time it was her turn. The coin had found her. With the treasure she could give her family a better future. But first she would buy new clothes. And a private boat. And maybe a little hut on the beach.
When fisherman John got up the next morning to catch the fish for today, he was very surprised that his boat was gone. He was even more surprised when he got no response to the calls for his daughter…

Update 2.3.9 is live!

Published on October 7, 2013

The new update brings some changes:

This new version needs at least iOS 6.1! Do NOT update if you are still playing on iOS 5.x!

  • language can be changed from the settings screen in the game (you have to restart the game afterwards)
  • some language fixes for german
  • music plays now during bard songs, you can adjust the volume in the settings screen
  • game center activation is no longer available from within the game, you have to use your Settings App
  • you can now switch between the normal manual and the compendium (if you bought it)

I already noticed that the music volume slider is not right aligned on the iPhone 5, this will be fixed with the next update.

Have fun!
Kind regards

Update and translations in the works!

Published on July 30, 2013

Good news for people who want more bank vault space: With the next update, two IAP will be made available that you can use to extend your vault. I hope you will enjoy it!

In addition, german and french translations are now in the works. Although the french translation will take more time, german should be ready within the next two months. This includes the translation of this website, too.

Kind regards
Mario

Upcoming: Modern game mode! Give me your points!

Published on July 2, 2013

Modern stat developmentWith the upcoming update 2.3.5 I will introduce a new game mode, which is called “Modern”. You will be able to distribute 36 points to your base character stats instead of rolling over and over. In addition, you can choose which stat to raise when leveling. This feature is introduced due to popular demand and I hope you will enjoy it. The modern game mode will introduce a separate leaderboard in the Game Center.

Have fun!
Kind regards
Mario
