Warnings

First off, a few warnings.

This “manual” is meant to provide the information that maybe should have been included with the game. It will try to avoid spoilers as much as possible. Furthermore, it may be incomplete or inaccurate, please contact me if you would like me to add or correct some information. You can send me mail here: tim at analogbit.com.

The other warning is about choices in the game itself. Some actions have permanent effects in this game. Specially, they affect your alignment and consequently the ending you receive.

Playing the Game

Controller Support

Steam lists at partial controller suport, but game features full controller support (without remapping features). The game is mapped to use the DPAD for motion controls. The Xbox 360 controller works well. For a list of the key/button mappings, see the only page of the official manual

Backing up your Save

To backup your save, simplly copy the contents of the Elliot Quest folder, located here: C:\Users\<USER>\AppData\Local\Elliot Quest

Levelling Up

The maximum level is 20. You start at level one, meaning you will max out with 19 points to assign, spend them wisely.

Alignment

As mentioned in the warning, doing certain things will modify your character’s alignment. Here is an incomplete list:

Shift alignment towards Good:
  • Return bombs to boy in town
  • Graveyard rescue
  • Kill Tema Boss
Shift alignment towards Evil:
  • Opening town's people's treasure chests
  • Team up with Rogue
  • Destroy Goddess

Rogue

Teaming up reduces your characters alignment value. If you do team up, Rogue will randomly jump in and attack foes at random intervals, this is not always a good thing.

Goddess

Before making a decision at this point, you probably want to read this.

Destroying the Goddess not only shifts you toward evil, it also stops you from collecting the shovel item.
