Many years ago, a great evil terrorized our lands and covered it in darkness. Man, woman, young and old stood up against it and fought a seemingly endless battle. United they stood strong but they were no match for the evil that had spread. Many people died, others were taken as prisoners. Those who survived started envying the dead.
When all hope seemed gone, a savior appeared out of nowhere. A farmer boy, the son of a well known blacksmith and mage couple, came to battle. Wielding a magical blade, he single handedly drove back all evil and brought peace back to the lands. The boy was praised for his deeds by many, though some envied him and got obsessed with the magical blade he carried. As the hero didn’t want the magical blade to fall into the wrong hands, he decided to split it in 4 pieces and hide them separately across the land, each guarded by a fearsome beast.
The blade has long been lost but the legend remains.
Now, as darkness is about to spread over our lands once again, will the magical blade of legends be recovered and a new hero rise?

Reprogramming Guide

Reprogramming an Arduboy that has Arduventure on it requires a few extra steps than usual. The auto reset function of the USB port was removed to make room to squeeze a few lines of code to make the game possible. If you want to put a new game on your Arduboy with Arduventure, follow these steps:

  1. Plug in your Arduboy to the PC you will use for reprogramming
  2. Turn on the Arduboy and from the main menu of Arduventure select “UPLOAD”
  3. When the on screen instructions appear, press and continue to hold the up button. (This will place the Arduboy in bootloader mode, ready to be reprogrammed)
  4. While continuing to hold the up button, press the upload button from your PC
  5. When the upload completes, let go of the up button and after a short delay the new game will start
