The visual and musical setting is mostly based on ripped and edited 2D resources from games like Suikoden, Terranigma or Seiken Densetsu.

About the game

The demo version of ToE was released in 2005. After another three years the full version of act 1 was ready. The Tale of Exile project is a fantasy-based jrpg game divided into acts. The entire series will cover as many as 4 acts with 3 or 4 episodes each. The game is available in two language versions, Polish and English, although it was originally developed in Polish language. The Polish version has gained spectacular popularity and recognition among RM users in Poland, enough to be awarded GF prize twice. Since the day it was released, ToE has continuously been number 1 on the top RM hits list. After about a year the game was translated into English.

The story

Estalia is currently the biggest and the most powerful country among the neighboring countries of Ardene, the land of mountains and woods. Its power and supremacy is credited to Merton, a legendary leader who entered into a covenant with "Father Spirit". The covenant brought a blessing of abundance and success upon the Estalian nation. The following conquests and great victories have transformed this small and weak country into a respected empire. The covenant of Merton has created a tradition of "Great Initiations" to be taken by his descendants in order to rightfully come to power and prolong the covenant. A prefect world order was eventually disturbed as a result of inconsiderate decisions. An exhausting "30-year war" forced the King to make concessions to the "Great Council", making them the actual rulers of Estalia for 30 years. After the King's obligations from the treaty expire, the power should return to the Royal Family. However, history often repeats itself and proves that power is an addictive thing. It is not so different with the members of the "Great Council". A mysterious death of the Queen, restrictions inflicted on the King, all have lead people to believe that there is a conspiracy. A few months before the treaty expires we witness a "Great Initiation" if heir to the throne, Prince Antonius. This is where our adventure begins.


The Black Claw
A young mercenary looking for a big challenge that will earn him enough credit to join the elite "cleric" unit. He quickly makes respectful friends through his decisiveness and self esteem. However, he also makes many enemies as well, through his biting tongue.

A Lieutenant of the "Estalian Death Squad". She is the first woman in the history of Estalia to join this elite unit. A sharp eye and steady hand have earned her the job of archer. She gained respect and recognition in the army only through her hard work.

The Prince of Estalia nad rightfull heir to the throne. He is the only one who can revive the covenant and carry on "Merton Dynasty". He's a young, sensitive and intelligent aristocrat, deprived of his beloved mother at a very young age. Lonely and heartbroken, he avoided company, devoting his time to his great hobby - reading.

TBS (tactical battle system) - a complex system that divides each combat into turns. There are many different options and actions to choose. From physical attacks and spells to specials and summons. The outcome of the battle depends mostly on the player's tactical skills. No more confirming the attack without giving any thought, now you have to encircle your enemy, look for their weak points, block their attacks and watch for counter attacks.

CMS (custom menu system) - a unique menu with a big number of options, items and stats. Enables you to configure your spells, select extra equipment and save your game at any time.

Unique character development - The character's basic properties are developed trough training by the Masters. The same goes to character's new skills. Learning consumes Skill Points (SkP), gathered during battles, together with character's experience, Lv, and also the stats of the character. The higher level of basic properties, the faster increase of other Lvs.

Weapons upgrade - there is a possibility, or even necessity, to upgrade your equipment. Besides visiting the blacksmith, you will also need money and special minerals to perform the upgrade. Upgraded items have higher stats and more slots for Gemma.

Minigames - there are a lot of minigames and tournaments in the game. The cards, where you play for money, fights at the arena and other smaller minigames, including target practice and stealth movement.

Day & Night - You can choose to sleep until morning or evening the following day. A lot of locations are available only by night, as well as some of the events. Sleeping restores HP, MP and SP which are consumed in battles.

Tale of Exile Act II DEMO English

In December 2009 I gave Toe Act2 demo in Polish.
Link: http://www.tsukuru.pl/index.php?link=gra&title=2k3-taleofexileakt2&i=1

Translation into English goes very slowly, so slowly that I can not determine when it will be ready.
It's possible it will be never ready. Translator (Gregory Tarkovsky), which also explained akc1
doing it in spare moments. Although the demo includes only a portion of 1 episode (ok 4 hours of play) is the magnitude of a text for translation. If you depend on an English version could use a ToE2
motivation for an interpreter in the form comments ... He does this absolutely free. I hoped that the comments of act1 will be sufficient, but little of, and no one writes about the translation. I write about translation game. Here I am writing myself with the help of google translator. So You see i can,t translate game alone. As I say, everything depends on you.

This was a great game. Any progress on translating the second act?

Seemed really interesting, and it was very impressive graphically. But I could use a walkthrough.

And yeah, this.

Loved that card game too, addicting.
Welcome back after a period of time.
Translation of the second act was suspended in 90%. Translator, unfortunately, is absorbed in his work. If I find the strength and time, I will translate the rest alone with the help of google translator.

Glad that someone still playing my game ... :)
I'm happy that this game will be continued!
OOO! Another tactical game! *Laughs maniacally* Cant wait to try it ooouuuuttt! ^_^
Walkthrough for Tale of Exile Act 1 please? =D

i agree with her/him

audience reactions (1 pick the first one all of it )

28 satisfied 6 angry 8 bored (-_-)
4 irritated 2 disappointed

i need a guide on that one >.>

but i like my nickname :antonius the restorer :D

i finished playing the game and i love it hope act 2 come out soon
Lots of bug in this game,some of the flavor texts turn to either another language (i dont really recognize it) or just plain gibberish. some of the tiles dissapear completely. and the webs cant be crossed anymore when the quest finishes even when you still have excess potions.

oh and a suggestion, make the drowned mans hands cheaper or better yet, make the other loot higher price because its TOO EASY to farm the zombies and they dont even damage that much (except fot the magic and when bad luck strikes. i once had a 8 straight misses 2 of which came from BEHIND the witch and still didnt hit XD)

Also, that battle when you escort the 5000g gang member has a major exploitable glitch as well, the second character (the one who pops up in the bushes) has virtually unlimited action points
you just have to make him defend (doesnt work, only alters the black mercenary's positioning but dont confirm the action yet, then cancel the action so that the gladiator guy gets 1 free action point.

ohh and i loved the speech that prince made, i got The Great as a title and it was well... great! haha

the prosecution bit was more difficult for me though, i had to redo it 3 times before i got the not guilty verdict and still lost all 8 of my reputation! oh well, the price of being kind i guess :D

overall, i loved it! hope the act 2 gets done as well! good luck on whatever you are currently doing.
i have a question about this game, is level 10 the max? The exp counts forth but no lv up......
I played second act ! available at:


Cool to see the further adventures of this guy... new hairstyle?
Intro traditionally visual masterpiece .
We meet Stella, the new protagonist of the saga. Join the team also Minos and meet new, beautiful locations.
Menu opens the same melody as in the first part.
This is polish demo version of second act. I explained a little game with Google translator. Great game!
My mind is full of fuck.
I remember this. I'll give it another go.
