In Exilium Releasing on August 25th!
In Exilium Beta on Desura
Description
Release date: Summer 2014
In Exilium is a hack & slash role playing game in the same vein as games like Diablo, yet focuses on exploration and discovery as opposed to creating an expansive RPG experience. You play as a king who has been exiled to a strange, hostile world by an unknown force. There are no other characters and no quests to help you along the way. Only through exploration can you learn why you were exiled and how to return…

Features:
- Single player campaign
- Many secrets to explore and puzzles to solve
- Boss battles, lots of boss battles.
- Randomized loot.
- No other characters, no hand holding quests. Exploration and discovery focused.
- Seeded, randomly generated end game dungeon [Spelunky Style!]
- Online multiplayer battlegrounds
- PC, Mac and Linux builds

Some commonly asked questions:

Q: How much will the game cost at release?
A: Currently I'm planning on targeting a $10 pricepoint on release. This price is subject to change, but this is what I'm currently thinking.

Q: How many hours of gameplay are there?
A: This isn't really the easiest question to answer... For the single player campaign (starting with a level 1 character) it can take anywhere from 8 - 20 hours to complete, depending on knowledge of where to go and what to do. The game doesn't give the player much information on his goals right from the start. The player must discover what they need to accomplish. This will take time, so a first playthrough will take much longer than succesive ones. On top of that, after the campaign is completed there is a seeded randomly generated "End Game", that takes influence from games like Spelunky, that you can do in runs. Theoretically you could play this forever. Also there is an online multiplayer battlefield, which functions as competitive matches.

Q: What is the class / lvling / skill system.
A: These systems in In Exilium are pretty straightforward and intuitive. Each character has attributes (strength, dexterity, etc. etc. ). These directly effect your stats (hitting probability, defence ratios, health regen etc. etc.). You lvl up by defeating enemies and bosses. When you level up you can increase any of your attributes. There is no strict class system (meaning that you dont have to choose to be only a warrior / mage etc. etc. and level up only attributes that pertain to that class). However, skills all correspond to one of these general classes, so you should pick and choose how you set your attributes wisely. Skills are unlocked automatically by meeting the neccessary attribute and equipment requirements. For example (there is a mele skill called "Berserk", you need to have a certain amount of Strength and be holding a mele weapon to use it). All skill requirements can be seen by the player at any time, so they can plan out how they want to assign attributes to get the skills they want. You can mix skills from different class types as long as you meet the requirements.

Q: Are there puzzles, bosses, secrets, loot?
A: Yes, yes, yes, yes :)
