​Update 1.0.3 and official walkthrough

Dear point and click lovers,

just to inform you all that we just updated the game to version 1.0.3 for both PC and Mac.

With this update we fixed some minor issues on the PC version and we were able to halve the size of the game, increase its stability and optimize the framerate for the Mac version.

About the savegames:
  • PC version: savegames between 1.0.2 (last public PC version) and 1.0.3 are compatible.
  • Mac version: savegames between 1.0.1 (last public Mac version) and 1.0.3 are NOT compatible, but don't worry: you can go back to the previous version at any time and keep the savegames intact! How? Very simple: Right click on "Eselmir and the five magical gifts" on your Steam library. Select "Properties" and select the wished version under the "Betas" tab. In any case, you can then always switch back to the current 1.0.3 public version choosing "NONE - Opt out of all beta programs".


And, last but not least, ​You guys asked for it and here it is: we published the official walkthrough of the game! It is only in Italian but we think that it should be not a big issue to translate it in English or in any other language with Google Translate. Anyone can feel free to post the translated version of it in the "Guides" section of the Community Hub :)

Thank you again for your valued suggestions, feedback and for your interest in our old fashioned point and click adventure game! Feel free to report us any issue: we put our heart and soul in the game and we do care about your game experience! :)

In a vast fantasy world ruled by powerful deities and ancient spells, where people build flourishing cities, great monuments thrive and nature is inhabited by fairies and mysterious creatures, the extraordinary story of Eselmir takes place. Eselmir, a priest devoted to the Goddess of Time, belongs to the ancient Pirin race, demigod descendants of a fairy and a mortal who live on the highest mountains in the east. One night, Eselmir receives a mission from his Goddess that could change the fate of many: to find the five lost gifts of King Theoson, progenitor of the Pirin civilization, who upon his death was buried together with his treasures in a secret place whose grave was never found again.

The Pirin Saga

The concept of the game was inspired and based on texts and drawings of a young talented Swiss writer, Sebastiano B. Brocchi who wrote a new elegant fantasy saga called "Pirin." The game is set in his own created universe. The hand made drawings are easily recognizable with a strong personality, are of the same style used to illustrate the book made by Brocchi itself.
