Faulty Apprentice: Updated Stat System
8 months ago – Fri, May 25, 2018 at 12:34:22 AM

Greetings, Apprentices! Your good friend and humble narrator, Din here to share our new and expanded Stat System!

If you played the original demo, you will remember completing Jobs would raise your Courage. With all these awesome unique characters now datable (See the previous update) We are expanding the Stats into Courage, Discipline, Intelligence and Devil’s Luck. Each girl is different and they want Apprentices with different Stats! ;)

While this may look familiar in many ways, we are splitting stats into two groups: Attributes and Traits.

Each affecting different aspects of gameplay. Every NPC has a particular Attribute or Trait you can gain by interacting with them. Instructors will raise your Attributes by completing levels of Training. Castle Guards and Key Characters will raise your Traits by completing different types of Jobs. Each Attribute has a corresponding Trait, Equipment and minigame recognizable by colour. 

Strength and Courage are linked with the Sword & Shield.
Dexterity and Discipline are linked with the Bow & Arrow.
Wisdom and Intelligence are linked with the Book & Scroll.
Stealth and Devil’s Luck are linked with the Cloak & Dagger. 

Not only are Attributes and Traits linked, they have a symbiotic relationship. Attributes will directly affect your Health during Urgent Jobs, while Traits will directly help your Health during Training. While these stats complement each other for your everyday activities, they combine to affect your Health during Surprise Attacks and the Final Battle. All stats can be built independently, so have fun! 

We look forward to hearing your thoughts of the new stat system for Faulty Apprentice in the Comment section. Let us know you want more updates like this by hitting that LIKE button! 

Thank you for playing Faulty Apprentice!

Faulty Apprentice is Getting BIGGER!
9 months ago – Tue, Apr 24, 2018 at 11:40:26 PM

Greetings, Apprentices! Your good friend and humble project lead, Din here, to announce Faulty Apprentice is getting BIGGER! Thanks to your support here on Kickstarter, we were able to reach ALL of the Stretch Goals! Raising the number of datable cast from the four characters to the entire cast of 11 characters! That's triple the relationship paths!

Our estimate release date was originally set for April, but with the additional features (As you can see from our previous updates and more in updates to come), datable characters which expand the world of Faulty Apprentice, we have decided to push back the release date. 

FA: Datable Roster updated

Datable Characters Includes:  

  • Archery Instructor  
  • Sword Instructor  
  • Magic Instructor  
  • Dark Elf Rogue  
  • Traveling Merchant  
  • Alchemist
  • Bunny Guard  
  • Sir Quintus  
  • Princess  
  • Black Cat  
  • Commander  

Since we started rebuilding the game from scratch, we’ve spent the majority of our time getting the game engine, art pipeline, and base gameplay up and running. Quality story and player experiences are our number 1 priority. At the same time, we want to make sure to stay within our budget, focusing on the things that are core to Faulty Apprentice.

We promise to keep in touch regularly but we need to stay focused on making Faulty Apprentice the best it can be! For those that missed the Kickstarter and Backerkit campaign, due to the increase of in-game content, the full release price of Faulty Apprentice will be higher than the original price listed on Kickstarter.

While the release date is still yet to be determined, we feel confident that we’re building the rest of the game on a solid foundation!

Thank you for playing Faulty Apprentice!
