Hello Steamgifters! It is that time again - adventure time! Join a great adventure with incredible amount of treasures!

Over 80 treasures are featured in the current Game!


All of us like playing games, and all of us like winning games. So, how about playing a game and winning games while playing?


  • Introduction

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.

All giveaways have no restrictions, so anyone who finds them can join them!

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! :)

Here is the topic of the previous Game of sWords.

Here is the topic of the first Game of sWords.


  • Important notes about the Game

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.

I highly recommend to read this article for important Strategy Tips and general understanding of the Game :)

Also, make sure to read the FAQ, it has the answers to most questions you might have about the Game ;)


  • What's new in the current Game of sWords?

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!


Current Winners limits: Barbarians:19, Mages:17, Thieves:24.

Winners get access to all giveaways available in the Game! (80+)

Everyone who finishes the Game after the limit is reached gets 1 random treasure as a consolation prize!

All giveaways end on the 1st of March!


  • Time to start the Adventure!

EVERYONE is invited to play the Game and search for treasures in the adventure! :)

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? :)

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

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

Can't run when you are out of energy though so that's basically a death sentence.

6 years ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

Yup, and your energy won't replenish during the battle (unless you use potions), so you have to plan your escape beforehand :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.

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

There's no point in checking same place twice :) You can find something only by checking new places.

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.

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)

6 years ago*

Comment has been collapsed.

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 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.

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.

6 years ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

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

6 years ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

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 :)

6 years ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

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?

6 years ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

The bonus effects are active even if you don't equip the weapon. So weapons are also partly artifacts :)

6 years ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

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?

6 years ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

Thank you! :) Yes, one artifact of each type. 7 types mean that you can carry up to 7 artifacts at once.

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.

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

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.
