    Hello fantasy fans!

    We are the Indie Team Jewel Seeker Entertainment.
    Some of you may have seen our table at Anime Messe Berlin, where we gave interviews and our RPG "Apprentice Arriving" was presented for the first time in an early stage development. Last year we were also invited to the Creative Gaming Festival in Germany, Hamburg. There we gave a talk about game development in the Speaker's Corner.

    Much time has passed since then and now we are ready! Early Access is on Steam now and the game will be released on the 7th July 2020!

    We would be very happy to receive your feedback for the game. Join us on our journey to make Apprentice Arriving a fantastic adventure and watch how the game evolves!

    Here is some information about the game.

    Apprentice Arriving is a narrative-driven 3D-Fantasy RPG played in 3rd-Person that combines Retro elements with modern gameplay. The game is powered by Unreal Engine.

    The Game

    Guide Prince Landon’s way as he fights Maira’s mystical creatures to become a true and worthy Paladin. But as your slumbering powers grow, so do the dark forces tracking your every step.

    Your time has come. As the "Apprentice" you dive into the role of a sorcerers disciple, granted with incredible strength. You are the son of the beautiful Queen of Aclendi, whose ancestry is indistinct. She sends you out to „Dormum“ the home of the wizards. There you will be subjected to trials which will awake your slumbering powers. With your new abilities you will be able to oppose the evil forces. But be warned, this is not the end of your journey.

    A long adventure awaits you with a mysterious and profound story where many things are not as they seem to be. Collect the memories of another along the way to uncover the purpose of your journey. Learn from the past as you play in the present. Continue pushing forward and your path will become clear. Are you ready for a journey beyond your imagination? Then be the next Apprentice!

    Early Access Version 0.1.0

    We reached a milestone!

    Our first environment and polishing update is out now on Steam!

    Graphics and lighting have been improved, a new area was added and we made several bug fixes.
    The team also worked on combat and AI enhancements that will ensure gameplay continues running smoothly.

    What else comes with this update...
    • Several missing sounds have been added
    • Enemies can now hear you but they are less insisting. (You can now sneak around enemies)
    • The overall performance has been improved
    • You can now attack in all directions making it easier to attack multiple enemies that surround you
    • You can press attack while walking
    • The level design has been adjusted and improved

    The team worked on the entire map leaving nothing untouched. Thanks to the adjusted lighting the game looks not only better but its performance is "magically" enhanced, too. We also replaced many placeholders, added new assets as well as 4k textures.

    A completely new small area was added to the game. You can explore a mysterious ancient temple that holds memories of a forgotten time. You may find some fellows inside that won't welcome you. As some enemies have now "hearing senses" you can sneak around them to avoid a battle. But be careful they still didn't hit their head ...

    You better be on guard especially after our next temple update. There will be surprises just waiting eagerly for you. In addition there will be more story giving you a glimpse of a complex interwoven narrative.


    Oh snap, they found us!

    Also particle effects have been visually improved because we all love shiny things don't we?

    That should summarize what's included with this update. The rest is up to you to find out.
    You can follow the development and be a part of the community. You can also support us by getting the game on Steam:

    (Shht.. unknown sources say there is currently a discount.)
    Or you could just wait until the full version has been completed and get the game for a full price. The choice is yours.

    "If you are a true fantasy enthusiast you may love this game in due time."
