Eschalon: Book I is a classic role-playing game experience that will take you across massive outdoor environments and deep into sprawling dungeons as you seek to uncover the mystery of who - or what - you are.

A tile-built, turn-based game world where the result of absolutely every action is rolled, calculated or statistically determined. Strategy is paramount to success; careful skill management, equipment selection and magic usage will win your fights, not rapid button clicking. We are very pleased to say this is not another "action RPG".

Hundreds of items and dozens of creatures await your discovery. A combination of randomly generated treasure and carefully hidden goodies means that no two games will play the exact same way.

Unlimited character development style: Choose from 24 unique skills to make the character you want and 8 base attributes that affect your character's every action throughout the game. The game world does not scale or adjust itself to match anyone's play style, so the ease or difficulty of the game is directly related to how successful you are at developing your character.

Combat plays out at your pace. Eschalon: Book I features a turn-based system that allows you to roll through combat as fast or slow you want...make it fast and furious, or analyze every option for maximum advantage.

A non-linear storyline means that the game world is open to explore as you desire. Follow the storyline or don't...it's up to you. Just be careful where you go and who you choose to trust- the world of Eschalon can be a deadly place for an inexperienced adventurer.

An epic adventure that you must face alone...a single-player RPG carefully designed to feel like the great old school RPGs of the past such as Ultima, Might & Magic, and Wizardry.

  1. Nice game
    by orne, Portugal - Dec 24th 2015

    Excellent game game particularly if you consider its price, it has some similarities with Spiderweb's games so if you like those you'll like this.

    The storyline is a bit simpler though and also more linear, there are some "grinding things" which I don't entirely like, for example you have to take off your weapon off to switch to magic, I understand the point but it gets tireing having to do those extra clicks every time you want to switch between them. A tutorial for those starting out would also be useful.

    On the plus side, the game engine is well thought out and somewhat complex which create the possibility of using different tactics and attribute mixes. Another positive is that it runs pretty well on old machinery and it doesn't look all that bad overall.

    Overall the positives outweight the negatives and I can easily recommend it to people who like this kind of game.
