Update - Brand New Side Quest! (v. 1.214)

Dear adventurers,

Brand New Side Quest - Ancient Sunken Fusilier Fort

One of the most requested things players ask for in the Einlanzer discussion board is more side quests! Last week was the release of the new alchemy side quest in God's Grove in Canaan, this week you get a brand new ancient sunken fort to explore!

To receive the quest, visit the new Fusilier Historian building in West Fusilier. He will exchange some interesting dialogue with Alice, then tell you where to go from there.

Inside you will find...
  • A completely new dungeon
  • A huge, challenging new puzzle with a fully movable bridge
  • Epic story of ancient hero read via tablets
  • New enemies
  • A new boss
  • New unique dialogue with King Fusilier if you have him in your party
  • Two new unique pieces of equipment

Foolish Fool's Day Festival is Completed

We hope you took part in the annual Foolish Fool's Day Festival temporary calendar event. It has now ended! Next year will have another new foolish quest with new, unique foolish gear to earn!

As always, taking a couple minutes to write a review of Einlanzer helps tremendously!

Happy adventuring!

March 31

April Fool's Calendar Event, New Side Quest, New Features, and more!

Welcome to Einlanzer version 1.212!

Foolish Fool's Day calendar event
Riddari's annual Foolish Fool's Day Festival is here! A brand new foolish event has been added for this year's holiday with unique rewards that are ONLY available during THIS YEAR'S event! Next year will have new unique prizes.

The event ends at midnight EST on April 8th, so go talk to the jester in Riddari to play before this calendar event is over!

Updates with v.1.212
You spoke and we listened! Based on player feedback, there are several gameplay updates with this patch. Every change is detailed below.

New Sidequest and items!
There is a brand new side quest available in the town of God's Grove. Go in the building on the north side of town to begin the quest. The reward will be a brand new purchasable, usable item type that could potentially drastically change your strategy in battle!

I have another sidequest in the works right now that will take you to an ancient, buried Fusilier fort. Expect it to be done around mid-April. Players said they wanted more side quests! :-)

Quick World Map Button
Einlanzer now has a button/key that lets you instantly look at the world map (Lanzer's realm) without having to fumble with the menu and key items. Thank you player unknown_zzz for the suggestion!
  • Steam Controller/Keyboard version: the letter V or TAB on your keybard, or the < button on your Steam Controller.
  • PC Gamepad version: the letter A on your keyboard or button 4 on your pc gamepad by default.
Also, a couple lines of text are added through the early part of the game to let players know that they can use the quick world map button. These happen when you first get the world map from the blacksmith in Sea Breeze, when the shipbuilder sends you off to Riddari in Elnae, and when you first get your sailing ship. Also, The controls graphics you see when you start a new game have been updated to show the new "Instant World Map" buttons/keys.

Stat Explanation screen
One player on the discussion board said they wanted a detailed explanation of all the stats from the menu. I agreed this was an excellent addition, especially for how RP, percentage stat increasing items, and the Luck stat works.

Full Heal spell buffed
Alice's spell "Full Heal" had little use before. It seemed to always make more sense just to cast a strong "Recovery" spell. Now, "Full Heal" will not only give the target 100% of their HP, but it will also heal most status effects! It's not *quite* as thorough as a "Cure II" spell, but it does eliminate most status effects.

Status effects "Full Heal" cures: Poison, Blind, Silence, Sleep, Paralysis, Stun, Immobile, Arm Injury, and Strong poison. Notable exceptions are Stone, On Fire, and Confusion.

Options Screen (change window color, volumes, autorun, etc.

The final update to Einlanzer in this patch is an expanded options screen. Many of these features (especially autorun) were asked for by many players in the discussion board.

This replaces the bottom menu option that let you quit the game. The option to end the game or return to the main menu is now at the bottom of the new options menu.

New in the options menu:
  • Customize the window color
  • Adjust music, background sounds, and sound effects volumes
  • Allow for auto dash (highly requested in discussion board - I hadn't implemented this before because I needed to do extensive playtesting to make sure it didn't mess up scenes throughout the game)
  • Allow you to make text appear instantly

    That is all of the updates for this patch! Remember, the April Fool's Day calendar event ends after only one week, so take part in the festival while you can!

    As always, thank you for all the support, encouragement, suggestions in the discussion board, and reviews. If you can spare just a couple minutes of your time, writing a review of Einlanzer helps tremendously.

    Thank you,
    -Andrew Ryan Henke
