The beginning of a tale set in Anglo-saxon England, you must get yourself a sword to venture into the forest and kill the creature that stole from your hut whilst you slept. AEscplega: Chapter I... game comes with a glossary of old english terms and five devilish riddles in both old and modern english.

AEscplega is the best epic ever. Chapter I is finally finished and Chapter II is on it's way.

Well, that's boring. Oh well, guess everyone has to wait 15 hours before the game is officially released.

I just played the game a bit. I must say that this was the nicest game experience I've had in a while. I really like the very simple style of the graphics of this game and the music was awesome. It was all quite simple, yes. But I love simple freeware games. Hoping to see more games from you too. :)

That's a very good little game. Really liked the feeling of being back in Anglo-saxon England.
 A few critisims, as it's good enough to deserve them. The lighting effect on the fire in the shaman hut was out of character with the rest of the game graphics. The puzzles were a bit on the easy side and
Spoiler: ShowHide
a lot of the forest hotspots were a bit hit and miss. Liked the use of the log as a task diary, and the day night idea and the way the player was lead through the game.

Spoiler: ShowHide
I thought there should have been at least a confrontation with the troll at the end of the first part to give the game a proper ending, the new music got me all in the mood for something special then the game ended.

So greatly looking forward to playing the second part.
 Bugs:
Spoiler: ShowHide
You can get the pendant twice after you talk to shaman about broach.
I didn't need to use the flint or the ex-glove?, Just using tinder on cauldron lit the fire.

and the winsetup.exe doesn't work, you can't just rename the exe use the Game name in AGS.

As soon as I saw the screen shots, I thought, "Aaron's Epic Journey!" and I downloaded it right away..

And I had so much fun, I didn't even play Thief 3 like I originaly planned.

Hehe, Quest log.

Okay, I mirrored the game. NOTE: I might delete the file if I for some reason will need some more webspace myself. So I advice you to get another host too.

Nice game. I thought the night and day was good. You could make Part 2 a little more difficult. Good music
