Argskin is a third person Adventure/Role-playing game playing in a medieval world. However, Argskin doesn’t contain a fighting system; therefore it can also be seen as a role-playing-adventure mixture. The project started as a final student paper project, and was later continued as a leisure time project with a development time over 2 years. The story: After some time of travelling, you return to your home town Deloras. It doesn’t take long to realise that there is something wrong. You hear strange rumours about a mysterious ship. But when you try to find out more about it, you meet some obstacles. The royal guard has obtained control of the harbour. So you have to complete tasks for the citizens to get a higher popularity and to get access to the harbour. Argskin features a lovely detailed harbour town, humorous and different Quests, more than 70 intractable NPCs and an average playtime of 5-6 hours. Available in German and English!

Ein RPG ohne Kampfsystem? In Zeiten von Instant-Belohnungen, Grafikorgien und übermäßiger Brutalität in vielen Spielen, ist dies mal wohltuend anders.
Was mich stört (nein, ich bin kein Grafikfetischist), ist das Fehlen von Schatten, jedenfalls sehe ich in den Screenshots keine Schatten.
Eine Frage, bevor ich vlt. zum Kauf schreite, kann ich die Maussteuerung umkehren (y-Achse)?

Hallo! Die Darstellung von Schatten wird leider in der Unity (free) Engine im Moment noch nicht angeboten, dies wird sich aber vielleicht demnächst ändern (In diesem Fall wird es, wenn möglich, noch nachträglich in Argskin gepatched).
Ja, du kannst die X und Y Achse per Optionsmenü invertieren. Danke für dein Interesse!

Unity Free bietet doch auch Lightmapping an, damit ließen sich doch wenigstens Lightmaps für die Umgebung berechnen und verwenden, und das Ganze sieht schon nicht mehr so "flach" aus.

Needs voice acting (easy to acquire, just go to some anime forums or like deviant art), it needs better animating on the characters and the models need to be better. (this isn't 2001.)

It also needs a combat system. There's no way this game can be much fun without one. The player is never in any danger and there's no threat, there's nothing to get excited by.

You need to understand that there's no need to move the camera around so much, there's no reason for it.

That said, I like the concept - I just don't think this is the fleshed out concept. If you continue to work on this, it could very well be something. But as it is right now, it looks like a tech demo at best.

Is there a way to set resoultion? On my 1366x768 laptop, there is severe overscan to the point that menu items are beyond the edge of the screen. Is there a commnand line switch to set resolution?

There is a file in the game folder called settings.ini . Just open it with a text editor and you can change the resolution manually. If this doesn't help please write me again!

This looks pretty interesting. As an ancient gamer (since 1972), I most defintely approve. True role-playing isn't all about combat and loot (see The Guild series or some classic adventure games that have RP elements)...

So no combat? That's like playing skyrim for the graphics, without fighting. Wouldn't think the game would be that fun.

if it has no fighting system what do you do in it? are there bandits? in the medieval times there was tons of crime, how do you prevent against this? or is this just a adventure only game? either way it seems good.

Hi! Well, you can say that the game is a mixture of adventure and role playing (with maybe a bigger tendency to adventure…). The basic gameplay of the game consists of solving quests by talking to people, finding objects/people, solve puzzles, etc… So basically all kinds of quests you also find in role playing games, but without the fighting. The main idea of the quests was not to have twice the same quest structure, so that the quests become as different as possible. Additionally, you shouldn’t have something against dialogues/ reading, because the game consists of a huge amount of different dialogues. Another difference to the adventure games are the open quests (you can choose which quests you want to solve) and the money/inventory system. For some quests, you need money, which you only get as a reward by solving other quests. And yes, in the game there are a lot of crimes and bandits, you will hear (and maybe also do…) a lot of it. But don’t worry, you will never come in a situation where someone is robbing you and you can’t defend yourself ;) . And yes, first it was really the idea to implement a fighting system, but time reasons unfortunately made this additional game feature impossible… I hope I could help you with this small game description!
