Vagabond

KimberlyFrom Zeuzie comes classic style RPG game Vagabond. As a young adventurer who often travels past what is considered reasonable, you discover the cursed land of Granti. While you poke around, looting every crate and chest in sight, you learn the only way to get back home is to defeat the evil in the land. There are many obstacles to overcome, but you have some help along the way, most notably in your companion, who's form changes over the course of the game.

VagabondAfter you answer several questions that determine which of the four classes you will be, you jump right into the story. Use the [arrow] keys to move, and [z] or [enter] to interact with items and people on the screen. Press [x] or [escape] to open the main menu where you can save your game (do it often!), examine your stats and items, and rearrange your skills. Press enter to select the category you want, [arrows] to navigate the menu, and [x] or [escape] to go back.

You'll want to thoroughly explore the world (you are an adventurer, after all), as you'll find many helpful items hiding everywhere. Along with weapons to equip, there are tomes and relics. Tomes affect your stats and allow access to different magic spells during battle when equipped. Relics have a wider range of effects, such as immunity to enemy stuns, or a higher chance of dodging an attack. You have six slots to equip tomes and relics, and it's a good idea to keep a variety of them on hand, as you'll sometimes want to swap things around depending on your enemy. You'll also find things called stones, which are single use items which will permanently increase a certain stat.

Granti is divided into seven zones with varying lovely landscapes, different monsters, and enchanting music. Each zone holds many secrets and quests, including a main boss, and an elusive shapeshifter who will teach you new and useful skills. It's clear a lot of work has been put into making each area distinct, which makes exploring every nook and cranny that much more enjoyable, though there's not a detailed map to help you with this. Vagabond isn't linear, allowing you to discover things at your own pace. An item found early on lets you to warp back to the gates that connect the zones, where you can rest and fully recover your health for free. This allows for worry free gameplay, making Vagabond a great game for the casual player.

Kinda stuck at defeating Kurza. Any tips on how to beat him?

Gabe, why is that?

I have not played that long but is looking like a pretty good RPG to me.

The RPGMaker program needed to play it likes to not work on my computer. The last one would only run for two minutes before crashing last time (I forgot what it was called, though...) and only once with any others crash immediately

Why does the link to this page say "aura_tome" instead of Vagabond? Not that that's not a cool name too...

AlfanoMega: apparently, a clone of Vagabond is running by that name.

Btw, Vagabond looks promising from the description; I'll see if I can get it for a spin. Thanks guys! :)

We pulled the original article after it was brought to our attention that Aura Tome is a clone of Vagabond. :) Kimberly was good enough to play Vagabond and update her article so the proper game and developer get the attention they deserve.

That was truly amazing.

I don't think I have played a game like that, that paid attention to detail and kept the story going all the way though to the end. Very often a dev will seem to get bored with their own game and the whole thing will tail off towards the end.

Not in this case though, although the game play became easier, the plot and the next puzzle just kept me playing.

I must confess though that the ending

brought tears to my eyes

I seriously wish I could give this one more than the 5 available mushrooms :)

I found this game to be nothing short of amazing! I might have to replay it just to make sure I'm not missing anything (on the website there's talk of a "bad ending"), but wow, I enjoyed this so much! I love this sort of game, and this is probably the best free one I've ever played, online or downloadable. I wish I could give this game more than 5 mushrooms!
