Game of sWords is a text RPG Adventure where you can explore dungeons (or other locations), complete quests, solve puzzles, find useful items, avoid deadly traps and fight dangerous monsters while searching for treasures (private SteamGifts giveaways links) on your way and trying to reach the end to get access to a huge amount of private giveaways! Each Game (of sWords) usually has a unique scenario and a limited number of winners, so the chances will always be great.
Lots and lots of giveaways have been contributed by the community members, and I would like to say a big Thank You to everyone who made a contribution! :)
In the Game, you will have Energy Points and Health Points.
Most of the actions in the Game require Energy Points. Energy can be replenished using items, which you can find everywhere, thus it is important that you check everything around you!
Energy will also be replenished over time. Normally, you will receive 1 Energy Point every 15 minutes, and that time can be reduced with special artifacts that can be found in Game.
Note, that the Energy won't be replenishing during the battles (you can only restore it with potions)!
If you lose all your Health Points, you will also lose all the energy you had plus you will have to wait for up to 6 hours to be resurrected. (Basic Resurrection happens every 6 hours from the time the Game started - 16:00 GMT). The energy can not be replenished while you are dead!
Note: If you have problems navigating through the map, you can switch to Simplified Navigation at the bottom right corner.
Current Game is a true RPG adventure with 3 classes, experience system and levels, multiple skills, wide variety of enemies with random encounters and huge amount of weapons, artifacts and items. There is 10 times more of everything than in the previous Game! The map is now twice as big as the one in The Secret Castle (previous Game), so you have to be ready for a long and dangerous journey! Make smart decisions, develop your character your way and lead him to success!
The only requirement is that your Steam account should be more than 90 days old.
Will you be able to defeat the monsters, complete quests, solve the puzzles, face the mighty Dragon and claim his countless treasures? :)

Also, I'm getting an error message and can't start the game :\
Edit: worked 30 minutes later.
Fixed, sorry about that! :)
What was that? :v
A stupid me missed a small coma among huge wall of code.
Oh, thanks for the fix then!
I was confused by that error that I died against the first ghoul I saw :v
Hehe, ghouls are quite strong for the 1 level, I'd recommend to run away from strong enemies as soon as possible :)
Yeah, but I actually had a chance against that ghoul except that I forgot to drink the HP potion in time and kept fighting till I died...
Hehe :) Have to check your items from time to time.
I tried to run away from this beast but I died while running =D
Bump! I died real early because of poisoning :D
Good to know Im not the only one :P
successfully killed an angry turtle then was so tired i had to rest.
11/10 would fight again
Cool story of a true adventurer! :)
Hmmm pretty hardcore I must say. Died almost instantly as a mage. (on 2nd monster actually) Not even potions could save me from the "scratchy bird" lol. So the monsters are respawning, nowhere is safe... (Maybe it's my idea but character felt too weak, and energy drain only worked for 1 point, bleh)
Well there's a first time for everything. Even death. xD
same happened to me :(
I died after one step...
Im a Thief, but i dont think the class matters too much
I think the initial spawns are too much. 70-80hp creeps can not be easily killed with the initial stats. Better run on those... Only the strong barbarian may be able to deal with these at this point from what I gather.I did run away from a 80hp ghoul only to be killed by a 70hp one in a supposedly safe place. xD I drank everything but left it alive with 10hp then I missed and it killed me. :P
yeah i ran but took me 5 tries and then started bleeding on the next step
yeah, so far i have an energy potion and sadness
Can't run when you are out of energy though so that's basically a death sentence.
Yup, and your energy won't replenish during the battle (unless you use potions), so you have to plan your escape beforehand :p
Indeed it is. Same as last time.
Those games are simply great! Thanks once again for Your hard work and sharing with us:)
Glad you like them! Have fun and best of luck! :)
So many dead bodies already... Luckily I haven't died yet, but out of energy :P
Yes it seems this time its very hardcore. ^^ Early game will certainly require luck as well. Mage is super weak in combat too, as it seems. Or I just got incredibly unlucky with attack rolls.
I'm sure you will find out the Mage's strengths soon :) But he probably is worst at the very beginning, yes.
Killed a monster, 25 hp left, couldn't escape from a fairy because low energy, died to a fairy.
Ouch, she must have taken your tooth as a trophy.
I'm dead after using a bandage and bleeding in the next few steps again. My luck is awesome :D
Great job on the game, really fun!
Hehe, it happens :) Sure you will have better luck further in the Game :)
Found a bug I think :
Had found an escape scroll, never used it, but after my death I look at my scrolls and it says I only have a regeneration scroll now. :O Seems like the scroll transformed to a different one upon death. xD Not that I care much, but strange no? :O
Hmm, I'll check it, thanks for reporting!
I've already found a treasure for an awesome game! <3
Hehe! Congratulations! :)
I really like this kind of game, too bad it's taking some time to move around, I've used up all my energy and need to rest now >.<
Time management is part of the Game ;)
Found 1 treasure so far. Are checks random or is there no point in checking the same place twice?
There's no point in checking same place twice :) You can find something only by checking new places.
And congratulations on finding a treasure! :)
Thanks! What happens if you die?
Nvm I should read better :)
You will be resurrected within 6 hours. Check out the FAQ, you will find much useful info there: http://gameofswords.net/faq
I wonder if it's possible to find my own treasure...
I did find it though O:
I'm hoping to manage this xD
nobody's entered it yet though, so it must be well hidden
Only 14 treasures have been found so far. The Game has just begun :)
Achievement unlocked: Found my treasure (:
Easy to find your own treasure. :D
But where's the fun in that :P
Interesting how the mage was winning in the poll, but there are much more thieves playing O:
The majority of players have chosen to play as thieves :p
Well energy abilities (two of them too) plus agility/dodge/accuracy, are actually very very useful in practice, so I wouldn't blame them. :P
Yeah, I saw that on the stats page. Btw, you seem to have swapped steps and checks either on the ranking page or the summary that appears when we're out of energy.
Great job on taking the lead! And congrats on reaching the second level! ;)
I think steps and checks are mixed up on the stats?
Oops, you are right!
Should be fine now
Should I lose coins upon death?
People can steal some of your coins when you are dead.
A question. I remember on last game of swords, enemies were marked as red, after finding/fleeing from them. They still occupied the space till they died. Is the same true for now as well? Cause I think I don't see them in the map any more. By the way even if I resurrect later, I'm surrounded by two powerful enemies. If they still stay there and also regenerate their HP, I may be looking at an endless death loop. (besides I couldn't kill any of them with full hp)
There are two types of enemies - random and quest ones (or bosses). Quest enemies will be marked on your map, and random enemies will flee right after they kill you or after you run away from them. 95% percents of encounters will be random.
So in short: They are not there any more. Thanks. That saves the day I guess... for the weak wizard that is.
I went more hardcore, but not THAT hardcore to trap you in an endless death loop :)
Haha. Yeah that would really be "not" fun any more.
Huh. Started bleeding on first move and died couple moves later without any health potion. Mages for the win. Yes.
Mages need some time to show their true power :)
I play as a mage and the artifact I started with gave me +5 strength and -4 defense. I think that's actually a weakening thing for me, lol
It sounds indeed lol. Maybe you'd be better off swinging a physical weapon with that one. Mine was bad too, disables the enemy critical hits or something.
It is not bad, believe me :)
Well it didn't help with survival so far. ^^ I'd rather have something for dps or regen/energy. :P Too puny dmg at the moment to kill anything. xD I guess time will tell though.
Well I would keep it for the future, a lot of surprises await in your adventure, and maybe such artifacts are there for a reason! ;) But who am I to give advice...just a guy who created this madness :p
It would be a good idea to use weapons that cause physical damage when you find them (melee or ranged) :) And upgrade defence after first level up :)
Not sure if this is a bug but when you have more than one weapon (bow and staff), If you equip the staff you gain its stats but if you reequip your bow back you still gain the staff stats along with the bow stats even though on weapon it shows the bow highlighted. Can we dual wield weapons?
The bonus effects are active even if you don't equip the weapon. So weapons are also partly artifacts :)
The game is better and better, good job!
But a silly question from me :)
Can we have only one artifact per type (head, feet...) or can we have many?
Thank you! :) Yes, one artifact of each type. 7 types mean that you can carry up to 7 artifacts at once.
well I have enough frogs to last me for life now xD
Good job collecting them all already :p
I don't understand how other people did stuff :P I walked around the same 4 blocks (for some reason my character didnt move from x7 y2 when i tried) fought 1 monster while blinded and boom, second monster, bye bye
You got disorientation, a negative status effect that makes you go in random direction instead of where you want to go :p
Does that mean it made me stay still or was i moving between two spaces ?
Also does HP regenerate ?
You are moving, but never in the direction that you want to go. Use this information to your advantage :)
If you are dead, you will be resurrected within 6 hours with most of your HP.
Does it ever end?
Got disoriented at first check, still was after 3 fights and 25 energy.
Edit: Maybe better not tell me. :P
As you wish :) There is a FAQ for a reason...
is it supposed to be so hard this time. decimated by a rat. it took 140 of my health and i only brought it down to 13/60 :o
I suppose it is too random on that regard. I also learned it the hard way. But maybe you were also using the wrong type of weapon. Though what armor or resistance would a rat have? :P Overkill
It is. The beginning part is probably the toughest part though as you are still inexperienced and "naked" :)
I had a helmet and a belt, im practically over-dressed ^_^ (just remembered i picked up a fire scroll and probably should have used that in the fight :/ )
Indeed you are. Most of us died before finding anything.
If you just started out it is unlikely you had a high enough Magic level to use the scroll anyway, so you don't have to feel bad about it :)
It's disturbing though that by the time you reach a high enough level to use the scrolls your auto-attacks are almost stronger anyway.
What's wrong with you SErVER51?Why be so evil and cruel to make a game so addicting and fun?So thanks to you now I'm stuck anxiously awaiting my timer to reach zero so I can start again on my quest!Keep up the good work :P ;)
Hehe, glad you enjoy it :) The Game is meant to be played in sessions though. There's no point in waiting for just 1 energy when you can leave the Game for a few hours to get enough energy to continue playing :)
Yeah, I do go and do other things ;) Also, meant to ask, will we be able to fight other players in future versions?I didn't know if you had anything like that planned.
Do you read my mind? :p I have ideas and plans for it, yes :) You can hit other players already though as a Barbarian :)
That's awesome, can't wait to see what you do with the game, thanks :)
