Silversword is about to celebrate its 9th anniversary. Today I discovered that it’s on position 35 of the german RPG charts! Thank you all! 🙂
I never understood why the very first quest – the one with the rats in front of the armoury – caused so much trouble for so many players. Tonight I’ve (hopefully) finally found the missing piece in this puzzle. And with the next update, these troubles should be gone forever (fingers crossed).
Well, in this case, a seemingly simple string to integer conversion just didn’t work out. And because this fight seemed to be like the others, I always overlooked what was wrong right in front of me. Now I know better – this combat is interestingly the only one in the whole game that does things different. Maybe it’s because it was one of the first combat scripts I’ve ever written for Silversword. Being a programmer can be hard… 😉
To celebrate my birthday and the 8th anniversary of Silversword, my games are for free for a short time! Happy playing!
The satisfying dungeon crawler is here for your grinding pleasure.
Lootbox RPG is a classic dungeon crawler. At first sight some of you may say “oh no, another rogue clone”. But it is not. I hate rogue, because when you do something stupid, you die. And the game is over. Very frustrating.
Lootbox does things different.
“Oh no, an incoming call!”
no real time decisions, you can safely interrupt the game at any point.
“So late already?”
no need to exit the game, a real world clock can be switched on optionally.
“What? I AM DEAD?”
No permadeath, this is no rogue-clone. You can load/save at any time, or return to safety without losing all your money or equipped items.
“Damn! I died and I forgot to save!”
The game is autosaved every level, don’t panic.
“If I only could teach those damn rats what I’ve learned…”
You can come back to your old friends and show them your uber gear.
“Nice game, but my smartphone is over 5 years old…”
The game runs well on older devices, happy playing!
“Where can I buy money?”
Nowhere. This game is OFFLINE and there is NO Pay-To-Win mechanism. Sorry.
“Where is the chatroom?”
There are enough messengers already in the world, right?
“Where do I have to register?”
Register what? This game is OFFLINE. I don’t need your data, thanks anyway.
“Where is the premium version?”
There isn’t. Buy once, play endless.
The cold season is approaching. How about a visit to warmer places, like The Inferno? The kind demons there will surely have means to end cold feet and freezing hands. And if all else fails, perhaps a flying visit to Maruziel will cast a smile upon your… ehm… someones face. Hot battles and lots of lava will make you longing for a cooling, promised! Right now, the game is at version 2.7.0 on the App Store and waiting for you. So get ready player one!
The upcoming update 2.6.6 will contain a permanent coordinates display above the settings icon. This enhancement was made specifically for those players who want some help when navigating without the map function. In addition the cross-hair symbol in the top-right corner now contains a voice over which tells you your current position.
I don’t support websites which force me to enter my birthdate before displaying content (wave to inxile), but as a true believer and follower of the old ways it is my duty to inform you all that the spiritual father of Silversword has been re-released in a remastered version. Tales Of The Unknown (Bard’s Tale 1) can be bought for Windows on Steam. So far, I am some hours into it and I can say that they’ve put some effort in making things easier. If you ever thought that Silversword has too much grinding – please do me a favour and give that game a chance 😉 You will soon see how it was back in the old days… so happy playing and good luck when kicking Mangar’s arse…
Silversword is on sale again. Don’t know what caused the issue. Enjoy!
Apple has informed me that Silversword violates against the App Store Review Guidelines. They found that my app duplicates content or the functionality of another app… and this is considered spam.
Well – that would be cool because then I could play a classic Bard’s Tale clone by myself finally and don’t have to do all the work. I kindly asked the review team to name the duplicate content or the other app that lead to this violation. Hopefully things will get more clear soon so that Silversword is on the App Store again.
The new update has hit the AppStore. Along with some bug fixes, here are the enhancements:
– you can give items to monsters in the party to improve their loyalty.
– more voice-over information for the direction you are facing (can be turned on in the settings).
– you can now turn off the chest pick lock game (can be turned off in the settings).
– new display mode for party grid. tap and drag the settings icon to switch modes.
– creature kills are now displayed on the boss kills page.
– the ending of the expansion Rise of the Dragons was enhanced.
