Voyage to Farland is a tough-as-nails graphical roguelike game. What's a roguelike? It's a notoriously challenging dungeon crawler role playing game.

This game is NOT a grindfest or a hack-n-slash game. It's turn-based and succeeding requires keen strategy and perseverance. But you're up to the task and you have what it takes to defeat the Spirit Witch and unlock the hardcore dungeon, The Path of No Return. If you make it to the end of THAT dungeon, a surprise is in store for you. Five themed dungeons. Tons of monster types with devious abilities. Voyage to Farland will keep you busy for months to come.

Fun things you can do in Voyage to Farland:
• get a pet robot you can level up
• befriend an outcast monster that will help you fight
• take on the challenge of the Strategy Dungeon
• build weapon & shield enchantments and store gear in a warehouse

It's awesome that you are updating this very good program like this. I was afraid that you had left it behind and gone on ahead to whatever new project you had glowing on the horizon. Very cool to be still doing work on it.

Sadly, because I have nearly 800 games on Steam and about 200 games on Desura (and anothet 150 on Gog, and about 250 CD's in a rack at home filled with games to install), that doesn't leave me with as much time to play VtF as I wish I had. But if I play every game right now until I beat it, I MIGHT be able to finish ALMOST all my games before I die of old age :)

Neverminding the time I spenddoing other things, like the fiction I write. Oh, and eating. Oh! Sleeping!

:)

Hey, good to hear from you! Yes, I let Voyage sit for a good while, only cranking out the Mac OSX version last winter. But then I put it on Steam Greenlight and decided to tackle some of the graphics recently.

I hope players like the new monster sprites. And I'm enjoying the new speed setting (F2->Game Speed). Unfortunately, votes are only trickling in on Greenlight. But I look forward to offering it there in the year 2024! ;)

:) I sure hope that a) the greenlight works a lot faster than THAT! The game is awesome enough it deserves to be greenlit today! and b) that Desura puts this comment in the correct area- Desura is SO good for putting comments in random areas :( And it's good to see you reply :) I have a lot of questions and such to ask about a myriad of subjects, including programming- could I email you?

Hey everybody! The latest update (v. 2.2.7) is out now. It includes the latest graphics updates, so you no longer need to add in the NewSprites Mod I mentioned in the previous comment from May 25, 2014.

In fact, if you've been using that Mod, you should rename the pack1/ directory to something else, or remove the directory entirely so that it doesn't override the built-in graphics from the latest version of the game.

I think you'll really enjoy the new look and also the new speed setting (F2->Settings, then select FAST or NORMAL under the Game Speed setting by using the right/left arrow keys).

Good luck on your quest!

Yes, it requires Java unfortunately.

The Desura client used to install a separate Java runtime I believe. One that wouldn't affect your system outside of Desura games & wouldn't try to auto-update, etc. But it looks like they now use a java_launcher.exe (for Windows that is).

Are you on Windows, Linux or Mac?

Thanks for the response! I am running Windows 8.1. I tried downloading the offline version of java and extracting it into the demo game folder and that didn't work.

The Windows version wraps the Java executable .jar file into a standard .exe file you can run. The Linux and Mac versions keep the .jar "as is" and use a script to launch the .jar with a couple of settings for where to find library files.

What you could try if you feel up to it is:

1) download both the Windows demo AND the Linux demo, so that you get the Windows libraries (from the Windows zip) and the unwrapped .jar file ("Voyage2.2.7_demo.jar" from the Linux tar.gz).

2) copy "Voyage2.2.7_demo.jar" over from the Linux extracted directory into the Windows extracted directory alongside the Voyage.exe. (Win/Linux/Mac all use the same .jar, it's just that the Windows zip has the wrapped version...)

3) make a batch file for Windows to launch the .jar with these parameters, maybe call it "launch.bat" with this single line:
java -Djava.library.path=lib -Djna.library.path=lib -jar Voyage2.2.7_demo.jar

or just run that command from a command prompt.

I just tested that process out and it works, although I have a regular Java installed so that java.exe is in my path, so your mileage may vary.

You also might have to set the game to run in Windows 7 compatibility mode. I'm not too familiar with that, but there were reports that sound doesn't work under Win 8 for the game. I think you can right-click a file to have it run in Win 7 compat mode (so right-click the launch.bat file and set it that way??)

Anyway, this is all advice for if you feel like messing with it. Good luck!

I tired what you suggested and it gave me this error "'java' is not recognized as an inoperable program or batch file."

Then I downloaded jre-7u60-windows-i586.exe and extracted it. I just tried to copy over java.exe and run it again. This time I got this error "
Error: opening registry key 'Software\JavaSoft\Java Runtime Environment'
Error: could not find java.dll
Error: Could not find Java SE Runtime Environment."

So, then I decided to give one last shot and copy the Voyage.exe and the files into the java bin directory. I didn't copy libs since it already had and most of the same files. I ran the batch file again and got this error, "Error occurred during initialization of VM
java/lang/NoClassDefFoundError: java/lang/Object"

Good attempts but it looks like there isn't away to avoid installing java. I may just have to install Java, disable it for my web browser, put the security on high and just let the apps through that I want.

Yes, I guess you'll have to go with a regular Java install and turn off the stuff you mentioned. Hope you get it working!
