Very relaxing RPG with a focus on exploration. You spend time finding all the areas on a nonlinear map (looks like the map in Fez), finding secrets etc.

There are classes, skills and loot like in other RPGs. But no NPCs and no dialogue. So instead of having to do courier quests, you just walk around and see whats out there.

The graphics look dated, since the game was developed by one guy.

Adding difficulty levels could help make the game more challenging.
Even bosses and special enemies are dispatched easily.

- Cool Puzzles/Labyrinths
- Sweet art for the intro
- Basic but appealing graphics
- Great variety in enemies
- I like how the plot (as basic as it is) places you alone in a realm of nightmare, and how the vendor is undead like dark souls
- Challenging enough to be fun
- No game breaking bugs

- No shift-click for stationary attack like diablo
- Potion system would be better than regen hp/mana
- No character vocal dialogue for immersion (thinking of diablo 1 here)
- Music is okay but it could be more daunting, perhaps some change ups for certain areas?
- UI in vendor menu is kinda crappy with lack of "buy back" option and sell/buy buttons (only single click on item) thus resulting in accidental sale/purchase sometimes

I have to say guys, for a 6 person team, you did VERY well and should be proud of yourselves. I consider it $10 well spent. Certainly not a greedy price for such work of a small team, you deserve it :)

I was expecting something a little more like Ultima at first, just going by the video and screen shots. When I got in game and realized it wasn't like that, I thought it would be more like the original Diablo.

Which is closer to an accurate comparison. It's Diablo 1 without expansive maps, loot, story, characters, environment, direction.

This game is missing the things about Diablo that made it entertaining: Loot. It is what drives these kinds of games. I found almost no valuable gear whatsoever, and I'm at a fight in the very late stages of the game. I was level 12 by the time I had finally found an item other than my starting gear. By the end of the game, I had no magic armor (store bought was significantly superior), a ridiculously weak magic ring, and a mid tier magic weapon.

Playing in melee is torture, too. The aiming is unreliable and skill use is clunky. I didn't bother with magic or ranged, they may be better.

I don't regret buying this, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

This is my first review of a game even though I have 76 games in my library, most of them ARPGs. One of the reasons I'm reviewing it is that unlike a lot of games in my library, I bothered to play it through to the end. For someone like me who bores easily, that's saying something good.

On some levels In Exilium doesn't begin to compete with ARPGs like Diablo 2, Titan Quest, etc. But that's okay with me because it doesn't really try to. It takes a different approach. It focuses more on exploration and puzzle solving than smooth, fast paced combat and tons of awesome loot. And even though I love those latter things, I found In Exilium to be a refreshing change.

The puzzles were just the right difficulty for me to not get too hung up on but still have to think about a little. You have just enough freedom in regards to what areas to take on first to make your first playthrough more interesting. The combat, while perhaps clunky compared to bigger budget titles, was still adequate. You have a variety of skills to choose from whatever type of character you choose to play. The atmosphere is cool enough. There's some replay value if you want to build a character for each of the 3 main playstyles. The drops, while plentiful enough at least in the latest version, weren't all that interesting to me and are an area that could maybe be improved on a bit.

All in all I just found this game enjoyable. It was refreshing, fun, and relaxing to play through. And if you're looking for a game to have fun and relax with then I recommend you give it a try!

I like this sort of game. The Diablo sort. I try not to compare everything to that AAA game, but it's hard not to. Anywho, here's some points...

-Decent amount of mobs and different abilites within those mobs, kinda.
-Bunch of different skills for each class (are hybrids possible?).
-Medium amount of maps.

-The game is still full of bugs.
-Mechanic wise, with bosses you just seem to kite, kite, kite. Super boring.
-Severe lack of different gear.
-Story is a snore.
-There's no point in a bank chest, loot hardly ever drops to even fill out your inventory.

The game needs more polish and a bit more content. It has a good start though...

First impressions...

In Exilium is a nice little RPG dungeon crawling game! I'm impressed! I didn't hear anything about this game, so I wasn't expecting much at all. I like it a lot! It is very reminiscent of Diablo 1 and a little of Diablo 2, but much better graphics and animations, but short on story.

You start off by creating a character. You get to choose from 3 classes. Warrior, Mage & Archer. Starting stat points are static and cannot be changed. You also don't get any points to distribute in the beginning, but you get 3 points each level gained. You also get to name your character, but you cannot change their appearance, although, your character does show the weapons and armor they are wearing.

You have 5 main stats to pump your points into. They are Strength (melee), Dexterity (ranged), Focus (mana), Intelligence (magic) & Vitality (health). There are many skills as well. It is a basic buy the book RPG dungeon crawling game, with some forgiving features. This is a great game for newcomers to the genre! It's becoming one of my favorite dungeon crawling games!

You start the game at your base camp with a shared storage chest for all your characters, an anvil for crafting, a fast travel campfire, a training area with infinitely spawning target dummies, plus a forest and dungeon entrance. There are other places to go once inside these areas as well. The game looks huge. Not sure just yet, but looking at the trailer, it seems to be a large game. You also start off with a camp teleport skill.

The sound, music, graphics, lighting and textures are very well done. There is a great selection of enemies to annihilate! lol Character and creature models are animated well. Nice level layouts. Mini-map, camp teleport, shrines and gems for enchanting weapons. It pretty much has it all. I'm very impressed and very happy with my purchase!

The one thing I love about this game, is you level up so fast! I'm already level 30+ after a couple of hours! You can level up sooner if you want in your camp by killing target dummies in your training area! I am not sure there is a level cap, but I doubt it seeing how fast I'm leveling up and haven't gotten very far into the game yet.

This game is for people that like to level up fast, but still have to fight for your goodies. Beware though, the monsters are pretty tough! This game requires some grinding as there are not a ton of weapons and armor like the Diablo series. Yes, there are some good items, but you have to fight for them and they come very slow, until you find a store.

Your health and mana regenerate automatically, but you can still die easily so beware! I don't think there is a penalty for dying. I died and was just sent back to camp with all my belongings and currency. Currency is weird. Not sure what it is, but the monsters give it to you when they die. Kind of like souls floating to you. It's a cool effect. It is the only means of purchasing items that I have found, so you must kill monsters to get currency. Luckily monsters respawn and pretty fast too, so don't get cornered!

You move your character and melee attack with the left mouse button and use the right mouse for ranged attacks, including magic and skills. You can set traps also. I haven't checked out skills too much as my Archer it pretty strong and I am on a leveling up spree. lol I have laid traps though and they sure help out! I also use a dagger with my Archer and an axe. He's pretty powerful considering my stats point placement. You can also buy a scroll to reset your stat points. Cool game so far!

I fully recommend this game to anyone looking for a light RPG game done very well! Not a huge story, but lot's of dungeon crawling! :-)

I am currently running this game at full graphics settings on my 6 y/o laptop! Awesome game! Here are my system specs: 15" PowerBook Pro, Intel Core 2 Duo 2.66 GHz, 4 MB system RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT with 256MB dedicated video RAM, running OS X version 10.6.8 (10K549), HSF+ Extended file system, Dell 24" External LCD Monitor.

First impression: a fun simple dungeon crawler.

I have to admit, at first I was not going to recommend this game. Who recommends a RPG that controls almost entirely with the mouse? With the left mouse button only? You put the pointer where you want to go and click your mouse, you select a skill/spell with a number key (1-5) and click your mouse (and if it was on cooldown, you go there), and while the skill is casting, you can't move and if you move your mouse the skill fires elsewhere and who does an isomertric RPG without WASD movement? I wanted WASD movement and mouse aim, and I didn't get it, and as a result, running and then aiming is difficult, and you need to run because if you play as a wizard (which I did) you're squishy, and you have no friends unless you can summon them in tier 3, and they don't help much.

But the thing that turns out to be fun is aggroing a bunch of foes, putting a 15 second field of fire down and running circles around it much like a sheep-dog, except that a sheepdog wouldn't keep the sheep in the fire. Various portal- and non-portal-related puzzles integrated into the levels, new spells/skills as i level up, it's not getting boring. Sure, it's not Skyrim; there's no epic storyline, no quests, it's not even Torchlight with its fishing and crafting and whatnot -- this is meant to be a fun little RPG game that, while small and easy to get into, doesn't feel dumbed down. Heck, even the inventory is big enough, and the spell that gets you back to camp is practically free.

What I'm saying is, when a planned half hour to get a first impression turns into 4+ hours of fun, this game is doing something right.

Still, it's a first impression; I have no idea how melee and archery play; haven't tried multiplayer; haven't beaten any of the big bosses and not breached the procedurally generated dungeons. But what I've seen, I like.

7.5/10 - Worth Buying
I had a lot of fun with this game, honestly it's an old school rpg. You don't know what to expect or what's coming just go out and explore the world. The movement and combat is classic as well, again I enjoy the change of pace. Here is a video I made showcasing a line of quests and fun along the way:

great little RPG.

it feels kinda like Diablo and Dark Souls had a child. Course there's not a massive budget backing this game, but for what it is it looks pretty nice, overall music and visuals present a very unique, serene setting.
The char-progression feels strange at the beginnin, your leveling pretty fast, but after a while it does make a lot of sense and is pretty motivating. Then you realize how many skills are in this game: there's all, from traps to summons, melee/buffs, per "class" (melee, ranged, spells) are amazinly many skills and there's quite the posibility to create diffrent unique builds (melee with summons for example).
The whole game does not offer a large massive scale, but that's kinda the beauty of it, there are not npc and quests littering your screen, you gotta sort things out yourself, even your shop is a deadman's chest.

overall a great action RPG.
When you keep in mind this beeing created by a single guy you gotta have respect.

I´ve enjoyed the game pretty much and I have to say it´s really good for what it is. This game has its own identity, but it reminded me, as to many other players, of Diablo I. I really enjoyed the puzzles, and especially while getting the achievement 'Tickle the Ivories' - I'm not that much into music, but it's pretty cool when you understand the system. Thank you, dear developer, for your successful effort to bring some joy to the old school players (:

Combat and movement are clunky, loot doesn't really do anything, skills unlock linearly based on level/stats and you only have 5 active skill slots, enemy difficulty frustratingly varies between easy and kill-you-in-one-hit. Skip this one.

Good things:
  • Good Soundtrack.
  • Well made level design.
  • Simple but good leveling up.
  • Hard and challenging puzzles.

Not so good:
  • Boring, slow & repetetive fighting( Warrior )
  • One of the most tedious locations i have experienced to date ( Infernus)
  • Weak story

Interesting and at times fun game, but has it's flaws. Didn't regret playing it but neither can i recommend it to anyone else.
5 out of 10, decent rpg but with heavy flaws.

I was really enjoying this game, with cup of coffe In Exilium maked me relaxed.

This game was a blast! Not too difficult, not too easy.
In Exilium was very refreshing, innovative, adventurous and exciting.
Launching the game and continuing my escapade kept me awake, alive and ready for the next puzzle.

However, choosing to play a mage, I did find myself continuously hoping for a larger quantity of magic-related boss/enemy drops; most of the drops seemed to be warrior/melee-related items.

In summary: Absolutely loved In Exilium, very exciting and refreshing; needs magic-related boss/enemy drops. Still worth a playthrough or two.
