Title Screen


Chronicles of Vaeltaja: In Search of the Great Wanderer takes you back to the golden era of pc gaming, when role-playing games like Dungeon Master, Might and Magic, Eye of the Beholder, Lands of Lore, Wizardry and Ultima ruled the world. Gather your party of six adventurers and embark on a journey through the colourful kingdom of Twin Falls where sunny fields, lush forests, misty swamps and dark dungeons await to be explored!

Welcome, traveller, to the kingdom of Twin Falls where strange menace is threatening the land that once lived in tranquil. You are hired by the King Menekses II to investigate strange occurrences in seaside town of Pramea where children have been disappearing and travellers are under constant attacks from bandits and beasts that shouldn't even roam there. Your job is to gather a party and find out who or what is behind this new threat and uncover the mystery of the Great Wanderer who once saved the humanity from a great peril.

So ready your weapons and wits to take on a memorable journey across vast forests, fields, swamps and dungeons to bring peace back to Twin Falls.

Already in the game:


  • First-person exploration in beautiful and colourful world created with 2.5D pixel graphics combining pre-made and custom assets.
  • Part of the main questline where some quests give you a possibility to choose from a couple of different solutions.
  • Mythology inspired by ancient Gnostic writings.
  • Six character party system with skills and stats that affect beyond battles and conversations.

Chronicles of Vaeltaja's the Guardian Update has finally been released and it packs a bunch of surprises too. Alongside with the last character class arrive new weapon type Polearms, all Castle Town interiors and new textures and tree sprites to the Great Forest and Pramea. But there's more to be excited about, because potion crafting is also added to the game with more materials.

One of the nice new additions is the House of Adventurers, where the player can find a merchant who will buy monster parts. This will also bring some changes to other merchants too: Nine Sister Shop also buys certain materials and other merchants are now more selective of what type of items they buy, though there are still couple of merchants left who will buy just about anything, except materials.
