Elminage Gothic

Postby Feldherren » Sat Sep 20, 2014 2:17 am

It's ... probably no secret that I have a thing for first-person dungeon crawlers, given Class of Heroes and Etrian Odyssey.

Elminage Gothic was released on Steam recently. It's a Japanese Wizardry-like, which means it's actually pretty western in style. It's pretty cheap even if you don't factor in the 20% sale currently going on.

I'm not going to try to LP this because I'm absolutely terrible at the sustained effort such things require and we've all seen enough attempts from me crash and burn already, but it's also no secret that I'm terrible at coming up with a party and tend to ask whoever's around for ideas, and I thought the results amusing enough to post here.

One of these guys has died already!
Because I forgot to equip stuff before heading out the first time.
Fortunately we had enough money to revive them.

I hate you.

It's £5.59, which is 20% off from its normal price.
Deal lasts until the 25th, so you don't have to grab it immediately, but it is good fun.

So it's been ... iunno. Maybe a month of ingame time at most.

Image
Dan has been punching stuff. He's good at punching stuff.

Image
Feld has been busy dying in tough battles and that's why she has so much less experience than everyone.
Side note: locusts look weird.

Image
Medwick opens boxes left behind by enemies mostly without them blowing up in her face.

Image
Isreal has a bow. He isn't as good at damage as Dan. He also died again but so did everyone else, so.

Image
Jant can summon earthworms. This is a step up from spores. Needs to contract something less squishy.

Image
Harmann has learned how to incinerate entire rows of enemies. Is useful.

So the party wiped and I had to send a random default adventurer in to save them. I'm pretty certain reviving people bumps their age up a bit, since I swear it hasn't been more than a month since this party started ambling around.

That, and everyone has aged inproportionately. Feld has aged 3 years, Manny aged 2 years, and everyone else just aged a year.
