November 17th, 2010, 14:23
Good heavens, a new Inquisitor update. This just landed in my inbox:
We apologize for the delay

Most of ingame text is now translated to English. It has been difficult and a real challenge in our lives. We have been working very hard on Inquisitor for more than 10 years. We are currently working on preparing English beta version; we appreciate your patience and support. We look forward to having beta version until end of year. Than we will start closed beta test.
More information.

It's kind of funny how the website still lists the release of the English version as Q1 2010

I'm not really sure what to think of this game. Normally I don't like Diablo-style Action RPGs, but since the developers claim there is a lot of emphasis on story and small details in the gameworld it mind end up playing a lot like Divine Divinity, which I liked a lot.

Unfortunately Cinemax isn't exactly known for pushing out high-quality games. The only really good game they have created is Gumboy: Crazy Adventures in my opinion, and that one is a platformer

Still, you've got to admit that it just looks great (despite the awkward animations).

Can someone bring me up to speed on this thing? I saw in our history that it's been around since 2006, but the website is not in English. I went to their website and I see it received relatively decent scores. Not grand, but normally an 80 isn't that bad. I have no context to go with those scores so I can't really tell.

So an action game with a focus on the story is what they're advertising?

Despite all my rage.

To get a true picture and good explanation of this game, i would suggest installing and using the google 'chrome' web browser which has the ability to translate foreign languages automatically 'on the fly' - see example - ->
………………………..
Investigation.
Inquisitor is a role-playing game, which means that the main character will travel the game world, interact with other characters and of course fighting. The game's story revolves around the investigation of crimes against God and King. With its main character will look for traces of dangerous and cunning criminals, obtaining evidence against them and convict them. Compliance with most of the tasks are associated with obtaining a sufficient number of incriminating evidence, which allows you to make accusations against the character and subsequently arrested. As evidence is liable under the Code Inkvizičního use anything that can prove guilt of the suspect. Most commonly it will be testimony and exhibit items, but may be as logical deduction main characters drawn from other, seemingly unrelated information. To facilitate your inquiry, all the evidence recorded in a specific part of the notebook.

Arrests.
Once you manage to collect adequate evidence against a number of character, you can search the local inkvizičního prosecutor or a judge and ask for an arrest warrant. On the basis of an arrest warrant issued, you can go and arrest a suspect. Characters indictment arrest suspects. They either give up voluntarily, or you have to overcome her dislike for the use of violence. If this is successful and the suspect will not fight for life and death, displays a portrait of the arrested person beside the portrait of the main character. Then you need to escort the arrested figure locally competent captain and forward it to imprisonment.

Torture.
An important part of the investigation is the right inkvizičního ironic - that the right to use torture during interrogations. In the game, so you will be able to detect offenders, the use of four tools torture - the rack, strappado, the pillory and the iron maiden. In the context of torture is important to note that although the law permits the Inquisition as a regular method of obtaining testimony or a confession, you should use for its caution, because no one knows whether the person interviewed actually guilty, and torturing an innocent man can main figure very social harm. In addition, each of torture (whether they are guilty or innocent person) exacerbated the belief of the main character. Therefore, always try to avoid the torture that you needed proof otherwise. On the other hand, in some cases not possible.

Court.
After the arrest of a person to learn more (incriminating) evidence, you can take it to the local jurisdiction inkvizičnímu judges. He, after hearing all the evidence gathered will decide whether it will order the trial against the accused or not. If this happens, you will have a representative of the prosecution to present all the evidence and, if present corpus delicti, which testify the accused guilty. If you do not have the items for himself, the trial will be suspended until the corpus delicti again ourselves. If you have these items for themselves or if they are to perform any items of evidence needed inquisitorial judge handed down a conviction and you will be required to ignite the firing line.
……………………….
Characters.
To fulfill his holy mission, you will be able to choose one of three main characters - a priest, paladin , or thief. Each character is endowed with many skills that enable you to develop your chosen character into the intriguing possibilities. Skills that control characters are of two types - common skills, common to each of the characters, and unique skills that make the main characters divides and allows you to try out three completely different strategies for keeping game. It will yet depend only on you, what skills and characteristics you choose for your character to develop, so for example, two priests from one another can vary like day and night.

Among the common skills of all three main characters are:
Fighting in the face………
increases the probability of intervention and the extent of damage in small arms attack
Fighting at a distance…………

……………………………………
Description of the main characters and their skills:

Priest.

Thief.
Thief is a former aristocrat who was deprived of all property, title and almost the life which made him an outlaw odkázaného only of themselves. But he got the chance to earn his position back, which he surely will fit his special skills of the years spent among the worst scum of the Empire:

Guru - Level 16

Magics is very detailed and extensive and contains several pages of explanations.

On the other hand, in some cases not possible.
If the translation and context are accurate, then it looks like we will be forced to torture.

Probably pass.

Trust me, most of the names I have been called you can't translate in any language…they're not even real words as much as a succession of violent images.

No, at no time has it been suggested or hinted that it would be cancelled…just delayed due to only one dev working on translation.

By the way, this game was fully translated back in June…..
http://www.rpgwatch.com/forums/showthread.php?t=10692

..and we are still in Q4 2010. - so on or after Jan 1st 2011 would be a good time to both announce the progress into beta and update the web page…and quite rightly not before, naturally.
To get to the closed beta stage Akella must have given the green light, the Russian version will be done at the same time i believe??

Yeah the torturing sounds sadistic. I will probably skip it too unless its optional.

Oooooh torturing! Sign me up. In the interest of role playing of course. After reading Wolfe's Shadow and Claw and Abercrombie's First Law I find them interesting. Heh!

"For Innos!"

I see applications for closed beta testers for 'The Inquisitor' are now being offered… http://games.cinemax.cz/inquisitor/news

It's a big game - 100 hours for experienced rpg'ers and 200 hours for newbies and greenhorns.

Hav'nt done any beta testing but i assume some dedicated commitment time is required.

Now I feel almost ashamed that I don't already play this game considering I understand Czech. They were asking about 30 euro for this, so I postponed the purchase for a while.
