KQ - an adventure game
KQ is an adventure game in the spirit of old console games such as
Secret of Mana, Final Fantasy or Zelda.
You control an adventurer, to be chosen amongst eight differently
skilled characters (a warrior, a priest, a thief, etc.), across a
journey to find the magical Staff of Xenarum. Some subquests will be
available to you as well.
You can find money in several places, but mostly by fighting monsters
outside of towns. You can then spend this money in towns buying
equipment, weaponry, medicine, magical items, spells and many more.
Towns are also a common place to gather information or restore health.
You will be able to save your game, but only outside of towns and
caves, or in special areas known as "save spots".
