4:18 pm pst
Endless Nights Now Available
Explore an ever-changing world in Endless Nights,
a new rogue-like role-playing game by Nations Software. Tired of the same old quests? Sick of playing a great
game and then replaying the same game? Endless Nights features randomized quests, areas, dungeons, caves, towers and
even multiple end-game bosses, which makes each new adventure, well... a new adventure.
The skill-based system
creates a play-as-you-want atmosphere, with no class choices or skill trainers. Instead, players simply play the game,
and the choices they make direct their class. For example, a character may either pray to the gods for help or cast
magical spells, but they cannot do both. Once the character chooses to cast a spell, they have made that choice.
Endless Nights is a rogue-like game, which means death is permanent and the challenge is to see how long you can survive.
Building on this theme, a new permanence system allows players to choose a specific profile, some of which allow them
to carry over some of their gold or gems to their next character.
The crafting system allows the use of manastones
to create magical weapons or armor, and the themed areas will have adventurers clearing spiders out of a forest or bandits
out of a tower. Each play through is different, and with so many different skill and ability combinations, Endless Nights
provides an endless amount of adventure.
Endless Nights is available in the iTunes App Store.
