Description
Release date: 2nd Quarter 2015
A rich and entertaining, story-driven adventure experience with hopelessly flawed characters steeped in a supernatural tale of courage, sacrifice, secrets and shenanigans.





Features:

Story-Driven

Although primarily light-hearted in its context, a heartwarming story and well-defined characters will be key ingredients in the player's overall experience with The Meridian Shard.

Challenging Moral & stat-related Character Flaws

Some characters also have inherent flaws in either their moral character, or their physical, mental and health characteristics, which will effect their actions and performance in different ways.

Challenging Equipment Sets

Each character/party member will also come equipped with specific gear that can only be upgraded—never removed, or replaced completely. The weapons and defensive equipment they have will already be tailored to their individual skill-sets and relevant to their specific class.

Six Simple Stats

Each party member in The Meridian Shard have individual strengths and weaknesses within a balance of traits that make up 6 main stats: Might, Magic, Resist, Karma, Speed and Guard. The progression of these stats will be determined by not only combining class + experience factors, but also by the player's passive actions within the game that can reward, or reduce stat percentages. For example, certain side-quests may result in not only a physical reward and some experience points, but also an increase in Karma.

Passive and Aggressive EXP

Experience points are granted through both your interactions with the world and characters around you, as well as for participating and succeeding in battle.

@DIE_by_SCI-FI: I understand what you mean by the icons looking like a different style, and you are right. They were made for a resource pack kickstarter last year. I am working on styling in the same fashion as the map and HUD art, so I think you'll be pleased with the update this summer. There is a short (15 minute) mechanics demo you can play to test the turn-based combat here: Meridian Shard DEMO [www.mediafire.com]

And please, can you say if it's possible try a demo?

Skill icons are horrible. I think that they should be more simple and in the same style. I first think that it's forum avatars collection. But HUD and World map is wonderful to my opinion, keep going!

@KORROSS: At least they don't hurt your feelings. : ) I'm currently working on smoothing-out the graphics a little for the upcoming demo. Thank you for checking out the game. Walk hard.

Graphics too hurts the eyes.
Графика слишком режет глаза.

I feel like "Harry Longshaft knows how to adventure hard" is some sort of euphemism ;)
