About This Game

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?

I got the 1.04 Patch in a .zip file ready for people to receive. If you E-mail me on j.toornent@yahoo.com I will attach the file in the reply.

when you got the file unpack it in a different folder, and rename the Septerra1.04 to septerra all lower case.
then copy the file and paste it in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Septerra Core, when it comes up replace the file.

then restart your Septerra core game and you will see 1.04 in the bottom of the screen and it is running through Steam with the 1.04 patch on it.

I don't know why steam didn't manage to get the 1.04 patch on it, but Septerra Core is ACE! and if I can help people make it not skip dialogue and cutscenes and improve their experience with their Septerra Core game than that is fine :)

If Steam support would like to have the patch so they can add it to their library I will send it in the same way as discribed in this review.

Update: I have been getting Mail Demon replies telling me files have failed to send to people... I hope the ones I send so far have been received by you guys!

I love this game to bits, but the Steam version requires you to sell your soul and stand on your arms while singing "Oh Canada" backwards to get it working

Nice, really old school RPG. I remember loving it as a child. We're talking Baldur's Gate, Planescape Torment era so the pace is a bit slow and the graphics while not horrible haven't aged nicely.

Very unique story and setting.

A blast from the past.
Septerra Core isn't a perfect game. Carefully prepared 16-bit graphics, spritey characters, design of opponents and fully animated cut-scenes were strong advantages but in the last century. The accompanying melody in the background often causes the state of fatigue and a very low resolution might scare most of the players. Nevertheless, the game has stood the test of time and this is due to the specific climate and some interesting solutions. If u don't mind any of the above-mentioned aspects or the frequency and repeatability of fighting I assure you that world presented in the game will engage you for long hours.
