Update v.1.215

Hello adventurers!

Welcome to Einlanzer version 1.215! This isn't a major update. It mostly fixes a few bugs and/or suggestions from the discussions board. There are a couple small gameplay additions as well, though.

Changes for Einlanzer v.1.215

  • There is a new hidden area accessible as soon as you have your ship. It is on the far east side of the map. Look for an igloo on a snowy island.
  • New weapon! Obtained from the igloo mentioned above, you can find a new weapon called "Shatter." This is a spear that has a unique effect. It has a 25% chance of inflicting the "Frostbite" status effect on anyone it hits. This status effect makes a target take DOUBLE physical damage and have 1/2 speed. This weapon can be a valid strategic choice through the whole game.
  • There is a new, additional story event for Ratt when he visits the charred remains of his house south of Alabaster. The new event is only accessible after achieving Ascension in Canaan.
  • Obtained from the story event mentioned above, there is a new accessory called "Mother's Momento." This unique accessory lowers damage from Fire, Ice, and Lit damage by 33%, protects against instant death attacks and spells, and raises the Magic Def, Luck, and HP stats.
  • The difficulty of the two battles at the top of Tier Tower have been lowered (Master Tierian Mages and General Baiz). Both enemy types have had their speed, Attack, Magic Attack, and HP lowered slightly.
  • Lastly, a couple small typos have been fixed in this version.

Please don't hesitate to post any concerns or glitches in the discussion boards. I will do my best to address and fix any and all concerns mentioned.

As always, please take a moment to review Einlanzer on Steam. It helps tremendously.

Happy adventuring!

Einlanzer Expansion - Developer wants your input!

Hello everyone! Nostalgia Addict Games is in development of a completely new and massive game, but it is still at least a year away. In the meantime, apart from regular updates and seasonal events for Einlanzer, I am planning on doing one or more expansions for Einlanzer called "Einlanzer Stories".

Einlanzer Stories will be only $.99 each and will be much shorter than Einlanzer. They will focus on some of the main characters' back story before the events of the main game. The content will dive more deeply into the character's motivation for joining the Swordbearers and major events that led to them being who they are.

I want your input! Which of the stories below would you most like to see?

- The death of Victor's parents and how he joined the Swordbearers
- The story of Galadin and Abel meeting, falling in love, and Galadin recruiting Abel to be a Swordbearer
- The events that led to Finn taking over leadership of his Thieves' Guild.

Please post your thoughts below!

The game has a 40+ hour campaign, tons of side-quests and secrets to explore, and has 28 original music tracks.

Never played one of the great 90’s JRPGs from the past? Expect an epic story with impossible enemies and dynamic characters. Follow your heroes as they develop together through hardship and rise up to protect what they love. Expect highly-strategic battles where every action could mean victory or ruin. Equip your characters strategically with diverse weapons, armor, and magic accessories. And last, expect to face an evil so immense and destructive, the fate of not only the earth, but Heaven and Hell lie in your hands.

Einlanzer pays homages to some of the fun, familiar themes of past games while breaking many of the tropes of the genre. Einlanzer is a massive experience that any lover of fantasy, engrossing storytelling, or strategic battles will love!
