Have you guys tried getting this game onto steam? It would boost sales immensely.

First post, you win a key! Check your inbox here on IndieDB :D

Also, yes we have tried to get on Steam and they rejected it. Most likely due to the fact that we currently have a matchmaking service (Reflect), and most people would not want to make an account on Reflect AND Steam. Also, due to our low sales (they ask for how many copies sold), they probably feel the game wont sale. Though it hasn't sold well because of the lack of exposure we have received!

It is unfortunate really, and I am sure if we could go back 4 years ago we would have planned accordingly for Steam!

Well thats a shame, thanks for the copy. I really do hope you get the sales you deserve. I haven't played in a long time but when I did it was a very well made game.

We have a hard time even getting responses from indie websites!

For example, Indiegames.com has ignored ALL of our emails. =(

Everyone here at IndieDB should go spam them until they try our game out! >=D

If you haven't heard of him, TotalBiscuit does first impression videos on YouTube, quite often for lesser advertised indie games, and gets tons of traffic. Might be worth a shot, if you haven't tried to contact him already! :)

Hello, I am from the MS Paint Adventures forums under the name Alphakirby, I do believe that you guys made a new account there to advertise this and I am currently too low in funds to afford your game. I would like to request a key so that I may be able to play it.

Game looks good. I have been checking back on it once in awhile over the last year. I got Magicka instead as it was more popular... but it is horribly optimized and wont run on my friends' laptops. One question though, I remember seeing an advisory on your website (a long time ago) about explicit content or content not suitable for children or something like that. Can you please elaborate? Thanks,

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

Ah Magicka, I have been meaning to check that out when I get the chance, I heard it was pretty good.

Mm I am not sure why we would have had a warning for explicit content or not suitable for children, the game is pretty kid friendly. There is blood later in the game (in the form of pixels and very low res), but that should be about it. It can be a bit tough, but so were old school games and kids seemed to love that back in the day!

Btw, sent you a key via private message, I hope you enjoy!

I commented on your Reddit post in /r/IndieGaming. I'd love for this game to get more exposure. I started playing with my girlfriend and we're both loving it so far. I'd write a review but I doubt anyone would listen to my opinion :P

Thanks for the Reddit post, hopefully it gains some traction on the front because I know Reddit can get things noticed! My GF enjoys the game too, but she may be a bit biased haha!

Every review we can get will help tremendously, if you don't mind that is!

We've played through about half of the demo, and we both love it! I'm so glad to have finally found a retro-styled RPG with multiplayer gameplay.

Great graphics, music, and gameplay - I'm really surprised this game isn't more well-known, hopefully this post will do something about that!

There's a 3-Chapter Demo on the main website for you to get your feet wet.

Judging by the lack of comments and frequency of gift copies being given, you have a good chance at landing a free Game Key, too! =P

Well, I played through the demo and I have to say, this game is great. I haven't really played anything like this and it's definitely enjoyable. I'm glad I've had the opportunity to play this and would definitely like a chance to get even farther in the game. I'll definitely try getting a 4 pack soon enough, as well!

A question: How is the multiplayer? LAN? online? Both?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote
d2king10 Author
d2king10

Multiplayer is handled through Reflect games. You have to be online to authenticate the game (otherwise you can only play the first 3 chapters), we might allow you to play the whole game offline as long as you have logged in successfully once, but we will see.

There is no offline LAN, but you can join via ip and if you leave that blank it will join someone on your network who is hosting.

Man, I love IndieDB!
I've been looking all over for this game! I saw it once, while browsing on my fiancee's computer, but I couldn't remember the name!
(I know, shame on me for not writing it down!)
Anyway, I'll definetly give the demo a try, possibly tonight, seems right up my alley. ^_^

I played this game years ago, i think it wasn't even on sale. I kinda liked it, i like the oldschool look.
Maybe i'll give a new try if there still is a demo...

By the way, i have a question, how long is the game ? Does it have good re-playability ? Will you continue to support it with new content ?

EDIT: Well, that was more than one. :')

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

d2king10

The game usually takes around 15 hours to "beat" it on normal with a new character. But then there is epic mode which takes a lot longer to finish, as well as trying to 100% all of the chapters and playing crawl mode to craft items. You should easily get over 40-50 hours on one character!

We have many fans that have replayed the game over and over, there is just something fun trying to get a higher score or creating a new character, not to mention crawl mode is damn hard!

We would like to create more content for the game, but it would be in the form of an expansion. It just depends on if we get the support for the game to justify us working on an addition to the story!

Though, we have had some players play for 100+ hours on a single character. The reason why we say "single character" is because each character plays very differently from one another. Very differently; like a whole new game.

You should be able to get an hour or two out of the free demo, if you play with others.

I'll definitely give a new try to the demo. And the game being sold half price may convince me, then i'll try to convince a friend to play with me. :')

Picked this game up like a few days ago, wasnt able to play much though cuz of other stuff to do, maked a Elemtalist and i liked her System so far, i can guess its funny to play with others online, but im unsure if i should buy it or not cuz it says 10 Chapters and who knows how long they are :/

But its on sale, so alrdy 2 of my friends prob. gonna buy it if im able to find some good Youtubevid :3

You will easily get over 50 hours for one character, just beating 10 chapters isn't the end of the game. Lots of crafting, item finding, epic mode, etc! Hope you enjoy the game!

Ho yeah. I played to this game a long time ago... It remind to me many good moments. But now, there is probably many and many new things. ^_^

There is many characters, and 40/50 hours for only ONE character... It's huge. O.O

I played to the demo this morning, and I find the same pleasure than before...
But now, I NEED to play in coop with my best friend. I will speak to him for this game... And a little price for sold... Hey, you have good arguments. ^^ I'm really enthousiast.

An independant game is always better than a commercial game.

But... I have both questions... Can we play in local ? And I really like music. Where can I find soundtrack ?

Thanks for your answers, friends !

There is no offline play because you have to be online to authenticate your account, so no LAN in the traditional sense. You can join via IP, and if you leave it blank it will join them, but you still have to be online.

No place to download the soundtrack at this time, but we will see what we can do about that!

Hope you and your friend enjoy the game and feel free to ask any questions you may have!

Hiya! I'm going to visit my brother at his college for the rest of the week, so we can celebrate the end of the semester. This looks like it would be an awesome game to play with him, but he's a poor college student. Could I get a gift key for him? I really want to party with him.

Thanks!

Ok, so let me just say, I had an awesome time playing Wanderlust. I played the first 7 chapters with my brother and Leone (whose initials I think are JG, b/c he said he helped make the game, but not sure (anyway, he was great). Ooh, and a guy all the way from montenegro, internet is awesome. First of all, partying old school is excellent, like I would have had a happier childhood if my SNES games had been like Wanderlust. Second, the game is fun to play :). The character progression system is nice, I'm looking forward to playing as fully specced out cleric. And crawl mode should be great.

I really hope you get a lot of good publicity, this game deserves it. And deserves more players. I posted a tip on kotaku; maybe someone will see it in the flood of emails. And have you checked out humble bundle? I don't know their admission requirements, but it would be great publicity.

Many good successes! (I've been lol/text speaking for the past 2-3 hrs of playing). Peace out.

Oh yah, and my brother says, “I thought it was amazing, and good, and had a lot of fun. And I liked playing with one of the creators, and being a mage and being ICE Wave and Dragon's Breath! And the town got snow!”
