:GM044: Introduction

Runes of Chaos is a unique blend of Action-RPG and Top-Down Shooter. You play as Viktor Kane, who is searching for a powerful and dangerous traitor named Zigurait.

Take on Zigurait's guards in an enemy territory as you search for his location. Eventually you'll find awesome items and unlock powerful spells so that you can attempt to take on Zigurait after defeating enough of his guards.

Items drop off of defeated enemies, and they are critical to your success. Try to select items and spells that work well together so you can specialize your character. A mage character, for example, would use offensive spells and wear items that are high on Intellect and Spirit.


PLEASE NOTE: This game will not run properly if your screen resolution is smaller than 1024x768. It also does not run well on netbooks due to the very small screen resolution and poor CPU. Most new laptops run it fine, however, as long as you use a mouse.

Saw the youtube trailer and screens (can't play right now). It looks OK, but what's with the ripped game icons man?! Get rid of them! If you use Google Images you will get tons of results, and resizing them to icon size will make it impossible for players to figure out where you found them.

Gameplay looks smooth, that's a definite plus.

nice game.

works not bad at my old pc
amd athlon 2300+ 1.87ghz
1gb ram
geforce 6600
having 30 fps not in battles. and about 20 fps in battles.
but sounds glitches sometimes. especially music

killed boss. and then get message. press "escape" to leave this room.
but if i press escape, there is only option to quit game.
that means game ends there? :(

@vdweller

I understand your concern about the icons, but please remember that I am only one person working hard on a game that I'm giving out for free. Please try to focus on the gameplay and have fun. :)


@vidokas

Sorry about the sound glitches that you're experiencing. I haven't encountered this on any of the computers that I've tested on, but I have heard reports about it from people with old/slow computers.

Unfortunately, yes. :(
The game had to be cut short because I suffered a severe wrist injury. You could try playing again on a higher difficulty for a challenge though. :)

Thank you! I'm glad you like it. :)

I am actually working on version 1.1 but it won't have any new levels. It does, however, have a really cool new enemy who shoots magic bolts that can pass through walls! It should be quite interesting. :P It should be available in about 1 week.

Also it's funny, everyone who play-tested for me said that the blue shotgun guys are the easiest because they're so slow and don't dodge bullets. I see them die to assault rifles from outside of their shotgun range all the time. They are meant to be the strongest enemy, but there are still plenty of ways to efficiently beat them. :)

Cronotek, i really want to speak with you privately. It is about another TDS game using your engine. It is a project we can collaborate on.

I can contribute the story, and voice acting. I think we'd need two other members, a musician and a publisher. You wil be the lead developer. This could get us famous :D. Oh and, we need a paypal account, because this will be a paid game

I found the game really hard to play, and enjoy, because the little red cursor blended too well with the background most of time. It might be because of my visual impairment, but you should consider recoloring it, or giving us the option to do so.

I would've enjoyed the game if I didn't have to look for that damn cursor all the time. :(

Apart from that, it was brilliant. :)

Yeah, the execution is excellent and the game is fun!

It really just needs a few tweaks and button to skip the intro!

WASD should work. I have no clue why it's not working for you, sorry.  :(

The Escape key should skip the intro. :)

Sorry about this. :(

If you're still interested, I can make a custom build with a cursor color of your choosing.
