Eschalon Book 1 Game for Free on GOG and Steam

Posted by

Eschalon: Book I is an old-school role-playing game, which is simple to play yet features a deep single-player storyline and complex character stats, as well as an open environment to explore.

Eschalon: Book I is a turn-based role-playing game. Turn-based gameplay means that each entity in the game (including your on-screen character) takes its turn separately. Nothing truly happens in “real time”.

During your turn in the game, all actions are paused until you decide what action you want your character to perform next. Once you choose an action, such as taking a step, casting a spell, or attacking an enemy, the computer calculates the actions of all other game entities.

Eschalon is unique, however, in that while all entity actions are calculated separately in order of initiative, they are performed all at once.

This means there doesn’t have to be a “pause” between turns; essentially, the game can be played out in “near real-time”, with actions happening as fast as you are comfortable with.

Battles can be fought with rapid blows back and forth at an action-packed pace, or you can act more slowly, choosing your targets and attack methods more carefully.

You can even get up and walk away from the game completely in the middle of battle, knowing that nothing will progress until you return and take your next turn.
