À propos de ce jeu

At the very heart of Septerra lies the Core, a huge Biocomputer. Seven continents at different elevations, each with its own unique people and culture, orbit around the Core.
According to an ancient prophecy, Septerra's continents will one day converge and join in orbit together on one level - this is the Legacy of Marduk, the Creator's son. The Chosen, fanatical believers in the supremacy of their own wisdom and technology, impatiently try to force the issue - causing a global catastrophe which threatens the lives of all Septerreans.

Meanwhile, amongst the Junkers, a young woman named Maya gets caught up in the developing maelstrom and soon finds herself confronted by seemingly insurmountable problems. Without help she stands no chance of fulfilling the Prophesy before Septerra perishes. But whom can she trust in a world torn by war and treacherous intrigue - a world on the edge of the abyss?

  • A fantasy role playing game with over 140 characters and a complex, multi-level world

So, Septerra Core. Here we are. FINALLY!

I've started this game 4 times (thanks to a lot of PC crashes). The first time was back in the day, when this game was fairly new (sooo, around 2000/2001? maybe?). 15th of May 2015 I finally finished it. Did I like it as much as I did back when I was roughly 12 years old? Well... kinda.

The thing is: the game AGED ♥♥♥♥ING TERRIBLE!!!!!

I don't know what my favorite feature is.

Maybe the fact that everything is soooooooo slow. You're basically waiting for EVERYTHING. Wait for the fight to start. Wait until your action bar is filled up to the level you want. Wait for the enemy to finish attacking because it is their turn EVERY ♥♥♥♥ING TIME EXACTLY BEFORE YOUR ACTION BAR IS ALMOST FULL!!!! Wait for the attack animation to start! Wait for the attack animation to end! It takes ♥♥♥♥ing forever to get ♥♥♥♥ done in this game. And that's not talking about interacting with ♥♥♥♥ing objects. (Why Maya, why are you thinking so long about that order I just gave you? Pull the ♥♥♥♥ing lever!!!)

Or maybe it is the TERRIBLE DUNGEON DESIGN that stretches the game about at least a third. Enter a ♥♥♥♥ING HUGE dungeon WHICH CONTAINS (apart from some items) NOTHING BUT LEVERS THAT OPEN DOORS AT THE OTHER END OF THE MAP. (Backtracking, Hooray!!!)
Add to that the fact that you visit a lot of dungeons AT LEAST TWICE. Multiple times if you by chance don't have a specific item or a specific party member.

That's right, most of the game is also a giant fetch quest of "use that item nobody told you about to progress". Get random item no.1 from place x to get random item no.2 that you might need 12 hours later at place y. Don't have item no.2 when you are IN THE ♥♥♥♥ING HUGE ♥♥♥ DUNGEON Y? WELL ♥♥♥♥ YOU, GO BACK TO X AND GET IT!!!! Thank god, that leaving one dungeon and entering a different one doesn't take ages...ohwait.

I could probably continue, but I rather say that I really liked the world and the characters and back in 1999 all of these features/problems were probably not as much a pain in the ♥♥♥ as they are nowadays. The game even has some smart ideas like the 3-level-attack-bars and the spell casting system. Unfortunately, video games have moved on and kind of left Septerra Core behind. There are probably many other old games that have aged better.

So, do I recommend Septerra Core. Well, obviously I ♥♥♥♥ing do because it is a really charming game that always has a special place in my heart. Also, I am now officially done with it and never have to think back like: "Why did I never finish Septerra Core? That game was kickass back then!"

In my opinion, everyone should experience the sensation that is Septerra Core in its entirety. And if you didn't back then, well, sucks to be you because nowadays the game is horrible, tedious, physical pain.

But I still love you, Septerra Core. I do love you! <3<3<3<3<3

I paid $0.76 CDN for this title.

After trying to fix and patch and play around with this game I have decided that it's not worth buying. Even at less than a buck.

If you did buy this nightmare of a PC game. Here are some tips to get the POS working.

1. Septerra.ini contains all the keyboard settings, now you can configure it how you like. RunSelect is to run away from battle.
2. In the Septerra.ini under options add ScaleMode = 0 and CpuIdle = 5
3. Get the patch posted in this discussion thread http://steamcommunity.com/app/253940/discussions/0/630800447154347424/
4. Uninstall QuickTime and use the QuickTime installer withiin the Septerra folder.
5. Set the new Septerra.exe from step 3 to compatibility mode for Win XP SP3
6. Do not use Timeslips unofficial patch, it converts the .db movies into white screens with audio.

By following these steps you won't need to do the following fixes:

1. Resolution color depth changes from 32 bt to 16 bit.
2. Disabling any graphical settings through properites of the .exe
3. No need to try and configure to run in a window to enjoy its graphics.

The game will keep its aspect ratio and play in full screen. Tested on a UHD 4k monitor at 60Hz running ASUS R( 290x Direct CU II OC.

I really like the fact I can play a memorable game on my computer. The fact that this game is available even after one of the developers has ceased to exist is absolutely amazing! A few problems in using the modern version of Quicktime- it doesn't play the cutscenes. This forced me to get the Quicktime 4 and give up Quicktime 7. Asides from this, it's epic!
