"Old School" meets modern indie awesomeness with
this sequel to the best-selling indie RPG,
Eschalon: Book 1.
Your victory in Thaermore was a pyrrhic one at
best. In spite of your success, the province was invaded and
destroyed. You attempted to retire, as the experimental potion you
took so long ago continues to erode your memories of not only your
past deeds, but your past skills as well. But no matter - you've
done your part, and the peaceful life seems to agree with you.
But even that was not to last. Haunted by a past you
no longer remember, you are plunged once again into a desperate
quest to save not just one province, but the entire world.
Eschalon: Book 2 continues the story of the previous
game, but familiarity with the first game isn't required to enjoy
this new chapter. Characters start over at first level (that's the
most fun, anyway) - but this new game offers many more levels of
play, more quests, more world to explore (approximately 3 times
larger than the previous game), and a massive number of improvements
to the original game based on requests from fans. Among the many,
- Play as a male or female character
- Higher resolution graphics
- New weather effects which affect gameplay
- Additional skills and improved skill balance
- Optional food and drink requirements, for the
old-school gamers who enjoy enjoy the challenge
- New difficulty modes and tracked statistics
- Improved GUI and inventory
Once again, Basilisk Games rises to the challenge of
creating a western-style RPG that provides all the depth, openness, detail,
and awesome crunchiness of the best old-school games of the past,
sure to give both new gamers and veteran hard-core RPG fans dozens
of hours of fun. It's the kind of game you can get lost in, as
you explore not just the game world but the system itself and all
its replayable fun that you can tinker with.
Eschalon: Book 2 is a wonderfully polished
turn-based indie RPG with beautiful isometric tile-based graphics, a deep and
involving non-linear storyline, tons of sub-quests, an elaborate
skill system, hundreds of items, dozens of monsters, numerous
alchemical recipes, and a pretty huge geography. It has clearly been
inspired by such legendary games and series such as Fallout,
Darklands, the older Ultimas, and Wizardry.
However, Basilisk Games was not content to simply mimic these older
titles - Eschalon: Book 2 is its own game, with its own unique and
exciting story, system, and style.
