MORPG "Darkfire Legends" is now online

1 post in this topic

Hi everybody,

My MORPG "Darkfire RPG" is now online and waiting for players.

The graphics are 2D and retro-style - This has to do with my limited artistic skills, but also with inspirations from old games like final fantasy, secret of mana, diablo and crossfire.

There are plenty of options to customize you character and create a build that is truly unique:

  • stat point distribution system, bound to level-ups
  • an abundance of rare magical items to collect
  • skills to learn
  • runes can alter and improve skills
  • "alternative" character classes, like the mutant or robot

In order to play the game, please download and run the windows installer (msi):
[url="http://darkfire-rpg.com/download.html"]http://darkfire-rpg.com/download.html[/url]

The client "should" run on windows xp, vista, 7 and 8.
Fullscreen mode will attempt to use a resolution of 800x600 - which should be supported by most devices.
So far, it is tested only with windows vista and 7 - please report back when you have troubles installing or starting the game.

Any kind of feedback is most welcome!

Special thanks to the gamedev community for supporting me with technical knowledge in several occasions.

You will find many more infos on the website:
