What is Lost Relics?

Lost Relics (LR) is an ARPG (Action-Adventure role-playing Game) powered by Unity and utilizing Enjin blockchain loot for provably rare and valuable items.

How do I play?

Head to Play Now page and download the installer (available for Windows and Mac).

Is this game Free to play and play to earn?

Yes! You can play for free and earn gold coins and blockchain items straight away.

If you enjoy playing you might want to upgrade to a membership. You can read about the members benefits.

Membership can be purchased from the Shop by buying Power Pendants and activating them on your account.

Power Pendants are virtual items which give you access to members-only content including adventures, skills, benefits, and the full range of items.

You can also buy Power Pendants from other players at the Royal Emporium in the game if you have gathered enough gold and if players are selling them.

Okay, I'm in. How do I play?

Movement and keys

Move around with the mouse, left click for move to/primary attack, and right click for pick up/secondary attack.

Secondary attacks use energy (the blue bar on the bottom right) and replenishes over time.

Your health is the green bar on the bottom left.

Hold shift to stop in your tracks, allowing you to also swing at the air, before monsters arrive. This allows you to complete your swing before the monsters even know what hit them.

Tab will show you a full screen view of the map, while the keyboard arrow buttons and mouse wheel will manipulate the camera.

Town

Your stash is located on the second level of the Tavern and is where you can store all of your items. It's also where you equip your items, outfits, pets, etc.

There are NPCs around town which have Quests for you to complete. To find the requirements you will need to go on adventures.

Additional

Traverse the environment and find the room with the exit. Chests and monsters contain valuable items and give experience so make sure you attack all monsters and open all chests!

How do I get more Gold Coins?

Gold coins can be found on Adventures in chests, from monsters and hidden around the dungeons in crates, barrels, etc

You can use them to buy various items and goods from around the Town as well as use them to trade items with other players at the Royal Emporium.

Other players might be willing to buy items from you in exchange for Gold Coins. You can even buy Power Pendants and Transfer Crystals on the Shop and sell them in game to other players for Gold Coins.

What are Transfer Crystals?

When performing operations on the blockchain, 'Gas' needs to be paid using ETH (Ether). Think of it like shipping fees when sending a parcel to someone. This is sent to miners who verify transactions. Gas is paid by the person sending the item.

When you collect Blockchain items in the game, and want to send them to your wallet, you will need to pay a fee to cover the costs of sending the item to you (the gas). The items themselves also have value within them which costs ENJ to create (Games can't create items for free)

Transfer Crystals power your ability to transfer Blockchain items from your Online Account to your Wallet and are essentially a representation of gas, which you can pre-purchase without needing ETH to pay for it.

They are only needed if you wish to transfer Blockchain items to your Wallet.

You can buy them on the website or from other players through the Royal Emporium.

The amount required will depend on the current Ethereum gas price and how many items you would like to send.

Lost Relics is an item heavy game, relying on valuable items to give you skills and powers. The blockchain items are limited in supply, truly scarce and can be traded with other players or found in the dungeons and you can earn an income by trading them with other players or upgrading them through Quests in the game.

What do I need ETH and ENJ for?

You only need ETH and ENJ if you're moving blockchain items around between your wallet and other players, or third party marketplaces.

ETH (Ether) is used to pay for 'Gas' to process your transaction on the Ethereum blockchain. Think of it like shipping fees when sending parcels. This is sent to miners who verify your transaction.

ENJ (Enjin Coin) is used to pay for 'Transfer' fees when sending items (To other players). Think of it like handling fees when sending parcels. This is sent to the game developer to support further development, server costs and pay wages, etc.

If I take an item into the dungeon and die, do I lose it?

Only virtual items will be lost. All blockchain items will be sent back to your stash.

If you do die, you will wake up in the graveyard with nothing but a rusty sword and a bard's bow, so make sure you head back to your stash before you start your next adventure!

How do I link my wallet to receive blockchain items?

Download the Enjin wallet and create a new wallet. You will need to link this wallet to your LR account via the Account page in order to use your blockchain items.

Can I have a free item to try out the Wallet?

Sure! Scan the QR code here with your Enjin Wallet. Once you've received the item, play the game to see and use your item!

So who made this game?

The sole developer is Cliff Cawley who has over 20 years of industry programming experience, 12 of those were in the video games industry. Over the years he's created apps and games for Windows, Xbox, Playstation, Wii, Android and iOS. He's a full stack engineer but also loves to dabble in art and design.

Cliff is currently a one man army creating Lost Relics after deciding to venture on his own and into the blockchain space.

What happened to Forgotten Artifacts?

Forgotten Artifacts was renamed to Lost Relics to ensure the name was more impactful and to better represent the expanded direction of the game.

I love it! How can I support this project?

As Cliff spends most of his day developing, hosting, and building this game, the best way to support this project is to buy items through the shop.

Power Pendants, pets, outfits and other items can be purchased in order to assist Cliff with future development.

Spreading word of this game and introducing it to other gamers will help the community grow too!
