The game is inspired by video games such as Final Fantasy VI, VII, VIII and IX, inspired by Sumerian history, myths and legends of Atlantis and Hyperborea, and by novels of Ray Bradbury.
Sacred Artefacts is RPG with classic turn-based combat system. Sacred Artefacts is a story where the World’s fate is in your hands.
The game features three modes of play: the towns, the dungeons, and the battles. The towns are places where you can rest, accept quests, buy and sell items, weapons and Artefacts. The dungeons are locations where you encounter monsters and find treasures. The more you play through the story the more towns and dungeons become accessible. By the end of the game you will be able to travel through the whole planet of Sacred Artefacts and even find its secret places.
Sacred Artefacts battle system is inspired by turn-based Final Fantasy games. It’s made in a similar way and it has additional signature features:
• Most of the battles have several waves of enemies
• Most skills and abilities have cooldown, they can be used only once per 2, 3, 4 or 5 turns
• No random encounters
Original characters learn new abilities and magic spells when they reach new levels. Each character has unique balance of offensive, defensive, support and healing abilities and magic spells.
In addition, you can always change the mode of dungeon exploration. It can be safe, normal or reckless mode; the mode will define how many waves of enemies you will face and thus the difficulty of the game
