1) Nyrthos seems interesting! How CAN I PLAY?
An Alpha stage of Nyrthos is already playable on Facebook. You can play it for free right here: http://game.nyrthos.com/
You will only need an active Facebook account to log in; it's free to play! Still, you can choose to buy the "Nyrthos Gold" version - it costs a few bucks and will let you access a few additional areas. Please, support us in case you'll like the game!
2) Facebook, But I hate Facebook...
Don't worry, the game will be also playable separately later on. We're working on it!
3) An Alpha? So, exacly how far are you into development?
We released a few early versions of Nyrthos some months ago. There was a huge lot of feedback we got, and we worked hard (and continue to do so) to use it well.
We're currently polishing the "beta" build, that will feature a whole act or two, and a "FREE ROAM" mode that should keep players busy for some time to come. Also, an Android demo is coming!
In case you'd like to stay up-to-date, be sure to check out the Blog section of our web, and add us on social networks.
4) Can you simply describe Nyrthos? What genre is it going to be?
Nyrthos is an indie RPG action game with beautifully crafted 2D visuals. Besides the hack-and-slash-and-loot Diablo series inspired core gameplay, it will feature a number of other goodies.
Let's name exploration, building structures, day-night and weather cycles, crafting and lots of other stuff. And - best of all - it's free to play!
5) Do you plan to release the game on other plaforms like Android or iOS?
You bet! We're currently using only Facebook, but we also want Nyrthos to be playable separately. Also, as we're using a multiplatform engine, an Andoid and iOS version is coming.
6) Are there any minimal specs to run Nyrthos?
Basically any “decent” PC with a dedicated video card should do just fine. Nyrthos also has a number of graphics quality options to ensure a fluid and pleasant experience. Go ahead and give it a chance!
7) Is Nyrthos multiplayer or singleplayer?
Multiplayer is definitely one of the things on our radar and we would like to make it happen somewhere in the near future.
8) You talked about "Nyrthos Gold". What is it and how exactly can I get it?
Nyrthos Gold is an upgraded account. By getting Nyrthos Gold, you gain access to otherwise inaccessible areas, new types of challenges, and - last, but not least - our eternal gratitude. You will also get all the future updates for free – the following beta, and everythig that comes afterwards.
Just log into Nyrthos and proceed to buy the "Nyrthos Gold" version. You will also get it automatically when getting any package of in-game currency. It's just a few bucks, but as we're a small team of developers and bear all the costs so far, any coin that gets thrown in our direction is greatly appreciated – especially in the beginning.
Also, please note that the current price of 5 USD is a special price for our early fans. It will increase after we push out the beta, so this is a good moment to get it.
9) I have another (unfrequently) asked question!
Great! Just use firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will be happy to throw the answer right at you ;)
You can also find us on Facebbok, Twitter and Google Plus
10) I am interested in funding the project or any other cooperation!
We are definitely open to any reasonable cooperation possibilities and since we are basically funding the game so far on our own, we would be also interested in getting any kind of a sponsor.
