The Broken Seal - Beginners Guide

This guide gives an overview of the gameplay, including hints and tips to get you started.

Movement



Locomotion mode (preferred): move freely with the right stick, or double tap the right stick in any direction to 'jump' in that direction. This costs mana in the game.

Teleport mode (easy mode): hold left trigger and release to move to the spot shown. This makes it very easy to avoid monsters so it affect the realism of the game.

Giving Commands



Hold the right trigger and say:

  • 'Show me the package' to open your inventory
  • 'Show me the map' to see the map and your quests
  • 'Show me the spellbook' to see your spells and upgrade them

Speak clearly. When you're first starting out, you may need to say these a couple of times to get them to work.

Spells



As above, speak clearly.

  • Complete quests to get new spells
  • Hold the right trigger and speak the spell as it's shown in your spellbook
  • Practice makes perfect for aiming
  • Upgrade spells in your spellbook as your level up your character (this will cost gold after the first level).

Examining and Equipping Items



  • Bring your hand towards an item and hold your right trigger to examine an item
  • Press the grip button to equip the item
  • Press both the trigger and grip buttons to equip and item immediately
  • Item quality is green (basic), blue (moderate), purple (strong)
  • Equip gems to boost your stats

Buying and Selling Items



  • Do this in town
  • Sell items by moving close to the cauldron with the ‘Sell’ sign on it open your inventory (say ‘show me the package’) take items you want to sell and drop them into the cauldron
  • Buy items by taking them off the rack and putting them in your chest

Summoning Pets



  • Find or buy a ‘pet ball’ (transparent orbs with monsters inside)
  • Take it to the summoner (dwarf with the monsters behind him)
  • Open your inventory (say ‘show me the package’)
  • Take your pet ball and bring it to the pedestal
  • Note the cost of summoning and make sure you have enough gold
  • Drop the ball in the summoner

Quests



  • A blue beam is the spot where you can complete a quest and gain a new spell
  • Use the map to show you your quests
  • Defeat the monster
  • Return to the camp to collect your reward (it’s best to do this with a portal scroll)

Your Belt (Healing and Portals)



  • Grab the flask (on the right side) and bring it to your mouth to heal
  • Grab a portal scroll (on the left site) and drop it to summon a portal back to your base

Video Guide


Sorry about the quality and cropping issues (cutting off the bottom of the screen sometimes). The game usually records in portrait mode (a 'vertical video') so I had to open two OBS sessions to get it to record in widescreen.
