Yep, it's done.

Second Wind, folks, Second Wind is here.

It's a witty blend of Text Adventure, Roguelike, and Sweet Simplicity.

All in all, there are 20 classes, three skills each, three major areas, four endings, countless monsters (as in, I'm too lazy to count them,) treasures, specialty shops, equips, weapons, and more.

Folks, this is one big game.

Also, there are medals, lots of em'

I sincerely dare you to beat the game on Nethack Difficulty.

And remember, dying is all a part of the experience :D



The last update was on October 21st, Version 1.57:

- Fixed up the Saiyan's awaken doing absolutely nothing.
- Fixed the broken meter glitch... Hopefully.
- The "explore" segment should run faster.
- And some other stuff I can't remember.

Send a PM with any additional problems and I'll get on them as soon as possible! <-- Now there's a wiki too!




Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Great game, with a few minor flaws. I've "completed" all the badges (though there are few which seems to have an issue that it hasn't/won't award me: 35 per stat, 5th tier weapon, 5th tier equip, flute 3 times, 10 potions, reach level 10, and 350 coins), and seen 3 endings (not counting death, of course)... or possibly four? Lots of content here. I give it 4.25 stars (officially 4.5).

Text progression from attacking an enemy to their attack/defeat message is often too quick to read.

***spoilers below***

Flew through Nethack difficulty with the Darkfolk character (IIRC -- the one with the Zap, ZAP, and BOOM skills) with only minor difficulties (of course, by that time, I had a fairly good idea when to hold back and build up stats before proceeding; though I think I would still have been creamed using most other characters at the same level/stats), so could use some balancing in places. He's still working on it and fixing/improving it, though, so I expect that that issue will be dealt with in due course.

As for the story pages, I'm eternally missing a few, but here's what I have so far:

1. Lo' is the world!
2. one arisen of four.'
3. Armon gave it structure,
4. Krillix gave it soul,
5. Spediphis gave it depth,
6. Zorom gave it life.
7. Each for their own,
8. Creatures in their image'
9. <unknown>
10. <unknown>
11. each gave their own,
12. Man from four.
13. Smith became his name,
14. One combined image.
15. <unknown>
16. <unknown>
17. He turned against them,
18. A war against his makers,
19. <unknown>
20. <unknown>
21. All is greater than one,
22. And so he fought.
23. They fought back,
24. Not one a match.
25. Yet united,
26. They would undo him.
27. <unknown>
28. <unknown>
29. Taken to another plane,
30. A land of no harm
31. But with him, they came,
32. Five in this hell,
33. Their powers wekened,
34. Their influence diminished,
35. Only in their dreams,
36. May they affect their world.

I don't know if that's the last page or not, but it s the highest numbered page I've come across. Not sure why the author would want us to share it, as once it is known it loses its value (with respect to sense of discovery within the game)...

I didn't want you to post it in the comments :P

I have a Wiki linked in the Facebook page for a reason!

Bro... This game is awesome. Still not done with it after beating it three times. Strangely, I haven't came across any bugs like half the other reviewers. Oh well, this game is very entertaining, as you are given super subtle hints on beating certain enemies, and if you still don't get it, it's all trial and error. This game actually makes me think, so well done good sir and/or madam.

5/5 Stars

Rated 5 / 5 stars

this is a very great game to play! entrancing music and the quickness of instances of exploring help give an addictive feel, although i have come across some slight problems with the story: (I feel that i dont want to spoil the story for the viewers so i will describe this as vaguely as i can)

1) on the 3rd level Blue path, there are two options. (1=top 2=bottom) pattern goes like this:
1,2,2,2. On the last option nothing happens when i click it, is it suppose to happen?

2) I have been searching for the story on level 3 for about 3-5 hours now and i currently only know about 2/3 of the story. Is there a faster or easier way of acquiring more story?

squidly responds:

I was thinking the community would, I dunno, gather it together! Maybe if I get a million views I'll just post up the whole document (I have it in .txt format for easy access :D)

I'd rather you guys figure it out yourselves, though!


Rated 3 / 5 stars

Took me a while, but I figured out a decent strategy to get to the end. Sadly none of it mattered because almost none of the trophies work and the game doesn't recognize half of what I've done, so when I should have unlocked about 8 classes, I got squat.
It was fun right up until that point though. So three stars for everything that worked.

squidly responds:

I think some people are having trouble connecting to the API, you didn't get any medals at all?

I mean, it's honestly a case by case basis.
