Update on the progress of Torgar's Quest, as the game enters beta. Lots of changes and additions!

Posted by on

Since the last update on Torgar's Quest, the game balance has changed and evolved, new stats and features have been introduced. It has matured a lot compared to the last public alpha build (which you can still download).

Finally, Torgar's Quest is about to start closed beta testing! And on that note - Testers Wanted! If you want to help test the game, send a note to rasmus@tagunda.com.

Since the last alpha, here are some of the major changes.

  • New stat for critical hits, increasing your chance of dealing bonus damage.
  • New stat for luck, increases gold found and spawn rates for treasure and crystals.
  • Special abilities and attacks. Choose 1 of 2 presented at levels 2, 5 and 7.
  • Gear spawns less often, making it harder to get all upgrades.
  • Crystal spawn is no longer completely random. Chance grows if you don't find any.
  • New artwork in the menus, on story screens and when reading lore books.
  • The game now supports localization and let's you select language.
  • As you progress, more elites and rare enemies will appear.
  • Level cap: Torgar can reach as high as level 10 before capping.
  • New leaderboards.

Not listed are the countless bugs fixed (and created), and the endless balance adjustments that are still being worked on, and a few other surprises.

Since midway through alpha, Torgar's Quest has been publicly available for download, but entering the beta phase, I chose to start with a closed beta. I did that, because it is easier to structure and build on the feedback this way, and because I wanted to have a lot of new content to show, the next time Torgar appears in public.
