Quest For Infamy Dev Diary: Combat

by on Jun.12, 2014, under developer diary, featured, quest for infamy

As you roam the land or come across certain sections of the game combat will be inevitable. Combat is seen in a side-view, reminiscent of Quest for Glory IV.

Players who chose to play as brigands or rogues will have have to be mindful of which enemy types they face. Certain monsters will be more vulnerable to stabbing attacks or slashing attacks. Magic users don’t have to worry about this, but instead need time to recharge attacks.

As you progress through the game you will acquire new gear and spells while increasing your skills on your existing attacks. In battle the briggand it is the strongest class for physical attacks, its abilities further complemented by a special charge move that can be performed after four successful blocks.

The thief uses his cunning to rob and steal from people and merchants, making it the easiest class to ‘acquire’ good gear for your character. It’s also the only class that can attack enemies in pre-combat, something which none of the other classes can do.If you’re interested in having the best gear and goods at the lowest ‘price’, then the rogue is for you.

Finally we have the Sorcerer. Unlike the other two classes who can improve their skills with each respective guild, the path of magic requires you to search the world for magical reagents in order to learn new spells. As a result the sorcerer is the most challenging class of them all, but also the most versatile. You are given combat spells which can range from damage and protection to healing and poisoning, as well as non-combat spells which will greatly aid you in solving puzzles, provided you’ve tracked down the necessary reagents for each spell.
Thank you for reading this far, we hope you enjoyed learning more about Quest For Infamy and checking out the developer interviews. Quest For Infamy is a labor of love from a team that loves adventure gaming and wished to give something back to the community. Enjoy being infamous!
