1.52.2b Quick Patch

These release notes are for both 1.52.1b as well as 1.52.2b, as we found critical bugs that needed fixed and made two different patches very close to each other.

Content

  • Powers are now able to cancel basic weapon attacks. If you are attacking and use a power, the power will stop the current basic attack and happen immediately.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed, dungeon portals were not being saved when you would rebuild a world. (This may not affect old worlds, as the issue was caused by bad data being stored in the world files. Therefore, although the issue is fixed, if you rebuild you may still not get the portals for the first rebuild. Any portals discovered after that will be saved if another rebuild is done.)
  • Fixed, able to rebuild your world even if the world file doesn't exist. This can help with partial migrations of characters.
  • Fixed, bug that sometimes prevented pets from attacking when activated.
  • Fixed, if player was disabled due to cutscene, but then teleported, they were not able to interact with the world until game was reloaded. This was the cause of the "Ghost Town" that was mentioned on the forums.
  • Fixed, pets would attack the traps in the primal dungeon.
  • Fixed, projectiles will now go through spike traps as intended.
  • Fixed, generation issue that caused the last boss area to be unaccessable
  • Fixed, pet levels now save correctly. The correct level is also now displayed, which was a slightly different bug.
  • Fixed, bug that caused player able to get into a undead and unmoveable state during death. Requiring player to restart the game..

Minor Fixes

  • Minimap name for the petshop fixed from "AAA Livestock" to "Dragon's Corset"
  • Fixed lighting issues in the mysterious forest.
  • Also fixed lighting issues in final boss battle, updated the visual look slightly.

Update 1.52b

We are back with another update. We have a good number of bug fixes, balancing as well as a handful of content additions. In particular new pets have been added to the system!

Content

  • Added pet "Dragon"
  • Added pet "Chicken"
  • Added pet "Book"
  • Added pet "Turtle"
  • Changed pet "Hawk". Now he fires projectiles when attacking, no longer stuns enemies.
  • Added Rune of Meditation, gives mana regen while at rest
  • Runes now drop at a minimum of certain levels ranging from 1-20
  • “Join to Steam Friend” has been added as an option which will list all steam friends who are currently playing FQ.
  • Public Server UI widget has been converted to controller friendly.
  • Last entered IP address is stored

Balancing

  • Added new pets to the pet store
  • Updated pet prices, they are much higher now
  • Rogue dagger projectile modified so it is easier to hit enemies
  • Changed throwing daggers back to a stream of daggers, instead of a burst
  • Made minimap more opaque, so it's easier to see in darker dungeons
  • Modified bomb for centipede miniboss to have much shorter arc
  • Lowered the poison and frost rune to only give a proc chance of 2.5% per level, instead of 8% previous
  • Rune of Knowledge, no longer give mana regen bonus, just mana max
  • Player mana regen has been changed to only happen at rest
  • Mage Soul perk, now gives regen at rest as well
  • Rune of Force, moved from +40% per level to +20% per level
  • All weapons now have sockets defined starting at rarity uncommon. No new common weapons will have slots.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed, monster mods were not showing up after patch 1.51b (You will need to manually update or create a new world to see them again)
  • Fixed, pets wouldn't teleport to your location when you used the inner-level portals in the ice dungeon.
  • Fixed, pets that draw aggro now release aggro when they deactivate.
  • Fixed, crash while changing spell when using the level up button to access the menu
  • Fixed, resolution choices were only given for the first monitor. Now gives choices for the monitor the window occupies. (Window must be on selected monitor before opening the graphic options menu)
  • Fixed, bug that caused "fullscreen" option to always be selected when entering graphics menu options
  • Fixed, fixed spelling of Dagger Volly to Dagger Volley
  • Fixed, now able to hit dashing enemies with projectile weapons
  • Bosses now will push pets out of the way much like push-blocks. This fixed issues where bosses would get caught by small entities.
  • Fixed, pets will now teleport when they are far away from the player
  • Fixed, crash when trying to equip/unequip skills via “Level Up” button

As always, if you experience any issues please let us know either on the forums or via our e-mail support@forgequestrpg.com.

Early Access Review
My initial thought about this game was that it looked strikingly similiar to the game "Cube World." Upon playing it, however, I learned that the two games are in fact very different. This is a game for RPG lovers who are up for a fun challenge. There are lots of things to do, and I find myself constantly hoping for new gear with which to upgrade my current gear. Is this a fun game? Oh, absolutely. Are it's bugs game breaking? Not in the slightest. At least, none that I've come across *knocks on wood* I only wish that armor equiped shows up on your character.

Great fun, addicitive, repetitive and humourful. I've put 53 hours in so far and I still enjoy every patch.

Developers are pro active and listen to all feedback. Worth the buy x

Early Access Review
Forge-Quest is a uniqe game, being constantly updated to have new features 'cuz you know, it being in early acess.
I originally didn't play this because of the keyboard controls and with me being rather uncomfortable with mmyself using my pinkie for CTRL and SHIFT. But i plugged in a controlller and had a 7 hour game session, only stopping to get a hoodie because i was getting cold.

This game is fun to play, for someone like myself. While not used because it is not perfected, has multiplayer so you and your wannabe friends can play together and be greedy ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s and take all the loot while you're busy fighting slime and flying books. This game is Voxel-Based so it can run on your computer with ease, Cuz not everyone can run Crysis 3 max graphics with 10 different shaders with no lag what so ever.

Buy the game.

Early Access Review
So far, I see a game with potential, just needs more polish. In the combat there are a few issues with switching weapons and the lag between them. A few missing tutorials in lockpicking.. Dungeons seem a bit directionless at times, and as far as crafting goes... its hardly a prominant point in the game. I can dissesmble a high ranking piece of gear for the reciepe, but then I can only craft a lower gear, which is fine.. but, the only way to upgrade the gear.. is with kits, that can be found in the dungeons (not so frequently either). Crafting dust is too abundant.. and if you harvest ore (by playing a game of jewel quest.. without the chain combos).. after loading a game again in the same place or even exiting the dungeon you will have all tapped out ore ready to be havested again. Basically, I thought I was going to be doing some major crafting in order to progress further in the game.. but instead, i'm just buying or finding all my gear. Game at its basics are fine, just don't expect to see a major portion of forgeing on your quest. ;) (Maybe I misred the title?)

A cheesy cartoony dungeon crawler game with a story so cheesy.....You'll need some wine to go with it. Very fun to play with or without friends. The only downside is a bit of lag in some areas and some small bugs here and there but something to really give it a try. Dont hate it till you've tried it.

Early Access Review
Right now this game is a fairly standard dungeon crawler. Its blocky design is okay, though I'm not a huge fan. It's clearly in Early Access, and it needs local multiplayer and better online before I'd recommend it entirely. However, the reason I recommend it is because the devs clearly are working hard on it, and making it better all the time. They also jump on the forums to answer questions, help stuck players, and sometimes even just chat about the game. This honest effort is one thing most Early Access games don't have, and that's why I'd recommend this.

This game is amazing. It is extremely fun, and difficult at times. It is very fun to find and forge new gear. It has some humor in it, but the game gets reeeeaaal deep,

This game has seen a ton of really good updates in the last few months, if you like games similar to Fate, and don't mind the Minecraft art style it's pretty unique and fun, I'd definitely recommend this game.

They've added a bunch of new ways to upgrade/change gear, added new weapon types which are fun, throwing knives, costumes, crafting, overall I'm really enjoying it.

Early Access Review
Forge Quest is an RPG-esque dungeon game.

Forge Quest is all around an exciting game, packed with eloquent and humorous dialogue. The classes are diverse and have their own interesting abilities to go along with them. The dungeon's designs are unique in their own ways and really bring out some of the core features of the game. The Boss's are difficult and have their own special attacks, aside from the fact most of them die to the chicken.

Pros:

- Interesting Storyline
- Interesting crafting system, could be more streamlined
- Classes are fun, have different aspects, have build up to more advanced classes suiting your playstyle
- Spells and abilities are unique to their classes and suit the builds of that character
- Weapon system is intuitive and easy to use
- Inventory system is well organized
- Differently sculpted items, some better fit classes, same with armors
- Cool pets

Cons
- Dungeons are extremely difficult to navigate, and can take upwards of an hour to complete if you take the wrong paths
- There are some spots where you can get trapped in by monsters and easily killed
- The crafting system is difficult to understand and use, could be more intuitive
- After a certain point, leveling and getting money becomes a grind, as it usually does in games like this
- Although the story progresses, a lot of it is similar to previous points in the game
- Pets can get stuck, lost

Overall Forge Quest is an extremely fun game to play, but the dungeons can get tedious as you complete floor after floor looking for the right door to take. The pets are fun to have around but can get in the way. Also having to activate the pets every time you want them to attack can get annoying.

Let me know if this review helps, but please, this is just my opinion.

Cheers

Your local janitor

I like this game and I play it with my friend a lot, but I always seem to crash when I get hit with the Chicken boss or I load up the upgrade screen after leveling up. The chicken boss is a more recent and may be my computer, but that doesn't excuse the lagginess and crashing of the upgrade screen. Please fix this problem so I may have a better experience with the game.

Early Access Review
An ARPG with great humor, if you don't buy it - at least keep an eye on this game, it's the only game where me and two friends actually kept playing after every crash, regardless of what happened. It was just too much fun.

WARNING: This is still in-progress though it actually has a lot of features already in, i.e you can play it now. However, it does crash for some people (me and my friend were on stationaries and crashed a lot; while the other friend was on a laptop and she seemed to not crash as often) if you are one of those people who think alpha and beta status = finished, no bugs. Then please stay away (from everything.)

tl;dr - Great game, a lot of fun, great humor (unlike Borderlands 2) but it does have bugs as it is early access, if you can't handle a couple of bugs: don't buy it.

This game has smooth controls that anyone can get used to. I highly reccommend playing this multi-player, due to the fact that you can not experience the full potential of the game without a party to back you up.
8/10

EDIT: The game still has many bugs that may afflict gameplay, do not fret, these will hopefully be temporary. Game is still playable. I look forward to see what Chase will add into future patches.
Cheers.

Lots of Potential. Devs are involved and updates are coming no matter how minor they are. More Early Access games need to be like this. Granted there is not a lot to this game just grind away at the mobs and get to the boss and more than liekely he will be bugged and just stand there while you kill him but again there is potential.

Really good action RPG. Like a fusion of Diablo and 3D Dot Game Heroes. Can't wait to see the game finished.
