OverviewOverview

Vagante is an adventure game where you hunt for riches in a dark fantasy world filled with monsters, demons, and crooks. Like Spelunky, enemies are not pre-programmed but respond to the player and the environment. This creates all sorts of ways to progress, but also all sorts of way to die.

Vagante looks like many other games, however the play is unusual because each time you play the world and levels are freshly generated. When you start a run you select a unique class of character: skin, background, character and skills. Then, as you progress you can level up and develop the career and skills you have.

As you delve deeper you can discover magic items that bestow powerful enchantments and game changing abilities. These are more than novelties, and open up new strategies and ways to progress and play. Along with this, you discover information about new character classes, backgrounds, music, and more in the Book of Secrets. This opens new options and choices for subsequent runs. The world itself is also rich and invites exploration. You can discover four unique areas each with their own set of dangers such as monsters, unique bosses, and traps.

The result is a living breathing world in which to play. Unexpected things happen, not because they are scripted by the designer, but through the interaction of the different elements in the game.
