Qi Daozei

Your rating: None Average: 4.3 (3 votes)

An Oriental-themed fantasy roguelike. Fight creatures from folklore and legend and absorb their qi to gain new abilities while fleeing the sinister minions of the Empire and its warlocks.

Qi (pronounced “chee”) is the life energy that flows through all beings and throughout the universe. You are a qi daozei – a “qi rogue” – born with the ability to absorb others' life energy. Your kind is feared and persecuted by the Empire, so for years you've hidden your gifts and tried to live a normal life among the citizenry. Now you've been discovered and must fight your way through caverns and wilderness to escape to safety, knowing that the magics and minions of the Empire are quickly closing in...

Gameplay: To absorb an opponent's qi, weaken them in combat until you can kill them with your next hit, then use your "Focus Qi" technique and deliver the deathblow. Doing so will let you absorb their qi and learn a new technique. What technique you absorb depends on how you deliver the finishing blow; check in-game tooltips or right-click an enemy and choose Inspect Creature for details.
