Massive update released! Version 2.0!

Hey friends, I'm so happy to announce that Version 2.0 of Sojourner is out now (and your copy of the game has probably already been updated). Some big, much-requested changes have been made, and the game is extraordinarily better for them. Here are the changes from this latest update:
  • Allow the player to resize the window and adjust resolution.
  • Removed character portraits from the combat screen because it just looked too clunky
  • Substantially increased the damage of the summon spells
  • Rebalanced some of the game's harder bosses and enemies
  • Improved regeneration skills for HP and MP, and made poison more effective.
  • Increased the power of some skills.
  • Fixed the music looping badly.
  • Drastically improved the rewards for collecting all the Skull Medallions
  • Sorcerer class now learns spells faster.
  • Fixed a bug where warping out of Jaggo's party would leave the screen the wrong color.
  • Minor bug fixes and typo fixes.

About This Game

Simultaneously a love letter to and a parody of classic role-playing games, Sojourner is the retro RPG that the world has been craving, but just didn't know it. By gracefully mixing modern gameplay elements with a familiar retro aesthetic, Sojourner features everything that you loved from the 8-bit RPGs of your childhood and leaves behind everything you didn't. Drawing heavy inspiration from NES classics like Mother (Earthbound), Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy, and Legend of Zelda, while bringing in an original style and quirkiness all its own, Sojourner is a glorious blend of the old and the new, making for a very playable, very fun adventure for anyone who is a fan of the classics or simply a fan of RPGs in general.

  • Recruit monsters to your party with a unique spin on creature-capturing
  • Multiple endings based on how you interact with characters in the world
