About the game

The ultimate mix of classic aesthetics and modern open world RPG!

Welcome to a truly open world RPG. Travel the world in the way you want, taking on the challenges you deem worthy of your time. Travel by blimp, artifact or by foot, and discover a vast world rich with characters, civilizations, monsters and adventure.

Take on quests the way you want to. Every quest has multiple ways to complete it, and the choices you make always have repercussions. Will you save the girl about to be sacrificed to the village fire god, or will you let her burn because it's not worth your time?

No matter what decision you make, there are always consequences. Your adventure begins with 1 of 3 choices that drastically change the flow of the entire game:

  • Freely fly around the world. (Airship)
  • Receive a special power. (Artifact)
  • Unlock the mysteries of the world. (Key of Time)

Everything you do determines which of over 70 endings you will get. This is the truly the perfect definition of an open-world adventure... an Artifact Adventure!

Creators Voice

Artifact Adventure came after the release of Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest. We thought, “What if we were to make an indie game similar to that era?” And thus, the game was born.

It looks a lot like Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy, but this is more like a mix of the two, as if it were the child of a union between the two series.

It has a bit of a strange origin, but please enjoy this indie game!

A newborn classic with heart!

Artifact Adventure is a love song to NES era RPGS of old. You'll recognize the tunes, you'll remember the sprites and the tile sets, you'll relive the journey through the caves and push forward to get that one last treasure before the long trek back out the cave. You'll cheer as you roll a critical hit at just the right moment, and you'll cry as your last hero falls to a random encounter. You already know what to expect from just the screenshots... but the game is so much deeper than that.

Artifact Adventure is a simple tale of four heroes who journey the lands, building strength and helping others on their quest to kill the Evil Swamp King. The game has been available on Playism for a while, but just released on steam where it makes good company among the other retro-indie inspired jrpgs. The game has the "hook" of choice. Something that's familiar to many fans of modern RPGs like Dragon Age or The Witcher, choice is a large element of this game. However, the choices don't lead you down a "good" and "bad" ending.. but instead open you up to over 70 different endings in the game. Choices are varied enough to make each town and each event interesting.

Do you tell the old man his son is dead, or soften the blow with a white lie? Do you help some stranger poison a guard to steal a relic, at a great profit to you - or protect the relic and secure the town's future. These choices matter, and have a lasting impact on the world. A rarity in this type of game.

The first choice given to you is by the king. He asks you to pick between an airship, powerful magics, and the Key of Time. Once you make your choice, you are locked out from the others. This is just a taste of the choice system included in this game. Truly a treat. There is no "right" choice, and its not a binary one. You have three options, which is actually pretty common in this game, but a rarity in gaming in general.

Conclusion: If you love NES era JRPGS, Christmas came early this year. If you prefer high graphics, hold-your-hands style gameplay with quest logs, and high quality cinematics, move along, this won't be your jam.
