I just read that there is a possible achievement in the game to get through the whole thing without killing anyone, so it seems that the combat doesn't really have to be a component of the game unless you choose to make it such.

Oh .... I translated "game locking" as "stopping play".
Is that not the case, then ?? headscratch

But being able to complete the game "without using combat" might attract more buyers yes

Game locking means that the screen locks up/freezes, but I can see why you interpreted it the way that you did. Most designers don't bother to mention such problems, at least not that I recall.

Oh, I'm grateful to them that the problem was mentioned, Marian, but I won't be playing the game until the patch is available laugh

I remember my outrage when I came across actual combat in one of the old Quest For Glory games! What??? Fighting??? But ultimately it was those very minor encounters that allowed me to feel safe buying my first RPG, which was Baldur's Gate.

It's nice to see these old game styles being recreated.

Great game indeed - already finished my first playthrough.
But why 'The Darkside'? It is not an action-adventure game: you can even complete it without any combat.
And the battles are turn-based anyway, like in 'Quest for Glory', so I would rather call it a pure adventure game smile

Iurii, in the past we always put the previous Quest for Glory games in the Darkside forum, and that's why when this game was released I put it here. It does indeed sound like Adventure Game Discussions would also be an appropriate forum for the game.

Generally, a game that contains combat in any form, even if it is optional, is usually directed here to the Darkside forum - That includes games with turn-based battle. Many classic RPG's are defined by that style of play. There are also "Darkside" style games that contain a Story Mode, allowing an individual to take part in the game, but avoid combat.

Personally, I would simply term games that fall out of the usual classifications as hybrids. In recent years there have been departures from what would be considered "pure" game genres and the foundational game definitions (yes, they did exist) are becoming less adhered to.

Adventure gamers are more than welcome to discuss those hybrid games here, we don't bite. Well, maybe just a little. evil

Thanks, Trail. That is pretty much what I was thinking when I put the game here on the Darkside.

I just hope that those who only play adventure games will learn of this game, too. smile

I've been waiting for the patch, Marian, but it looks like it's only available via Steam at the moment ??
