English translation is out

Hi everyone, we've added English user interface support after few days of work.

But we still have many localization problem needs to be resolved, we will keep updating in the future.
Still, this will take time. We have decided to rewrite our user interface system, hopefully resolve this problem once and for all.

English translation is coming

Yes, we know everyone needs english.
Currently we have some issues with language detection, our programmer is working very hard to solve this.
Another problem is the text in the game's UI & tutorials are all actually images so we would have to remake all of them, and this may takes some time.

Please be patient, the partial english support will come before our programmer's holiday time runs out.

About This Game

Story

Thousand years ago, The civilization was almost completely wiped out after a great war.

Centuries had passed, almost no one remembers the once glorious empire.

But, when the ancient history strikes back, you, the half god protagonist has awaken to prevent it to repeat itself all over again...

Note

This game's main focus is to show how much we're capable to do at a short period of time, but since we thought the result wasn't actually sellable, we decided to release this game for free.

This is a student project, it may contain various issues and we CANNOT guarantee these will be fixed due to the reason mentioned below.

We're planning to start a studio after graduation and Military services(according to Taiwan law we have to finish it unfortunately).

For those who liked our work please stay tuned, hopefully we may roll out some information about our next project when we're back on business.

In all honesty i only really got this for three reasons.
The first reason i got it was that it had only 1 steam achivment which you get by running the game. (Which need's fixed as it didn't give it to me. Which was a bit of a bummer as i thought it looked kinda cool.)

Second reason: Looking at the discription and other's review's made it sound interesting and i don't normally play these types of games so i thought i would give it a try.
As the saying goes, don't knock it until you try it.

And the third reason was that it was free to play.

Now me i am not really that picky when it comes to grapic quality of a game.
I grew up playing games like Doom and all three Tomb Raider games at the time as well as Warcraft and few others.

To which i am saying the grapic quality is better then any of those.
Graphics remind of Soul Caliber... if i am thinking of the right game been a few years since i played something like that not bad but also not spectacualer somewhere in the middle in my opinion.

Now the menu only has three options New game, Continue and Quite.
In order to get into the settings you have to start a new game and after watching the opening cut scene (As i don't know if you can skip that or not as i didn't try too.) you hit ESC to pause the game and that's where the settings are located.

This game has potential which i can clearly see that however it does still need some work done to it.
I do like that they do show you the controls when you play the game however using the special attack move is a tad strange to me as you need to use 1234 to use it.

I don't really care too much for 3rd person camera pov however i've played Warframe and still would if not for my sucky internet connection, but for a comparison on the camera view you get there is a slight difference.

You're point of view is closer to the avatar you are playing as and you can have a over sholder view for better aim.
The Lost Mythologies camera view feel's to far and not positioned right but like i said i don't usually play this type of game.

I did not really get too far into the game only got to the second room as the issue i was having was mostly the lag as my computer doesn't run high on fps playing some games that mixed with the motion blur was making me feel sick.
Not sure if you can turn that off or as i did not check what could be changed in settings.

Overall it look's to be like it Could be a good/fun game even playing it they way it is right now i sorta liked it (Minus the motion blur.) so i would recommend giving it a try.
And it is free.

Its ok, Has potental but missing alot of things from story to decent controls e.g. holding RMB + pushing 1, 2 or 3 to do a special instead of just 1, 2 or 3 doesnt make sense. Platnium Games would be able to do wonders with whats here tho, worth a try but i dont think many will play it for more than 5mins.

Hm, yes. This is definitely an experiment by (a) futue game dev(s). Otherwise i couldn't explain why it's free to play with no ingame transaction. And i like that, ofc.

It sure has that action combat thing going on, as you kill multiple enemies at once.
If you die once, the game will send you back to the start, with all enemies respawned and all doors closed and magic barriers up (which open after you kill all enemies in an area)
Sadly i didn't get very far, i got stuck at a cliff and i didn't know how to get across.
There was some pink energy thing on the ground but i couldn't interact with it.
2 out of the 4 times i restarted the game, i got stuck in nothing and couldn't move, but i managed to kill myself because the right mouse butoon attack pushes you forward.


Oh, and the in-game character has totally different hair and maybe the wrong eyecolor than the women on the cover art.
Just to make that clear.....


I see nothing wrong with downloading and trying it out.

Free to play game, basic platformer.

Pros:
Single Achievement for opening
Quick to finish
PS2-ish level of graphics
I didn't pay for it

Cons:
Never get the achievement
Story is in Mandarin Chinese, no full translation available at this time
Enemies pushed out of player-accessible area from special attacks force a restart as the sections put up a barrier until all enemies are defeated.

It's a single level of low-end spectacle fighter.

If this is some first effort by the devs, it's decent, and definitely a proof of concept. Not much to recommend as a game, but good enough to give a quick play through.

A bit of work (sound effects for the main character and the enemies, for example) would make this into a decent release worth a couple of bucks to buy.

I beat it in about 20 minutes, but hey, the price was right, and it was an ok 20 minutes. Give it a whirl. you won't be amazed, but you might have a few minutes of fun.

Great proof of concept. Some polish on the animations, enemy AI, and having graphics options this game could be worth paying for. Can't wait to see more from this dev.

Free hack and slash game. Graphics are nice. However, no save points that I noticed. If you die, you start at beginning. If you fall off edges and die, you get a white screen of death. I beat the last boss and still didn't even receive the one achievement of just opening the game. Booooo...Looks unfinished.

*sigh* After stuggling for an hour on potato (Intel HD3000) graphics, I learn that the achivement is broken. Before Febrary 2016 it took 5min if opening/gameplay for it.....uh...._-
Also there is no way to change languag ingame.

- Chineese only
- very short
- no plot
- boring gameplay

+ it's free
+ only one achievement = easy perfect game
+ decent visual part
+ epic death animation (really, it looks like this skirt lives its own life o_O)

Nice demo, but not really worth game. Good review, cause authors have skills for sure and may make good game later.

Granted, I cannot read moonrunes, but for what it is, this game was quite enjoyable.

Edit 02/16/16
Currently there is indeed, an English patch.

Fun Fact:
If you change the ingame quality, your HP and MP will reset. Please note it also resets the HP of your enemies as well.

It's free, it's playable, and has an exit strategy. I mean if you're broke and looking for about an hour of gaming (maybe you're waiting for a ride or something, IDK), then give it a whirl. Run around, fight a bunch of dudes, and eventually a boss and The End. No plot (minuscule backstory), no English (so far), just running and attacking a total of three (apparently, this qualifies for the term 'loads of enemies') enemy types. Graphics are alright, performance is meh, but breast jiggle physics is present thus all is forgiven. Also, fun to watch her skirt majestically flip-up whenever she croaks regardless of Newton's laws. It accomplishes why I set out to play it: Waste some time messing around while waiting for a friend so I could go out.

UPDATE: There is now English for interface items, but everything else is still in Chinese.

I'm just gonna give this game a thumbs up because of the amount of self-entitled people expecting some triple A game when it's simply a student project released for free for others to try out. It's obviously not polished and still needs some work BUT AT LEAST it's getting more updates than some of the other early access games out there with bigger development teams.

I'll be keeping my eye on the game, hopefully we'll see improvements to simple stuff like resolution changing and facial expressions.

加油 !
