The player can increase this number by buying backpacks from merchants that increment that maximum by 10 each time. It doesn’t strive for amazing storyline or gameplay, just simple hack and slash glory and it does it pretty well.
For example, I can tell you from my own experience that once I started the game as a guard (pure RPG adventure) and finished as an emperor (RPG+tactics+strategy). While the Action RPG gamer will find this game very repetitive, the fan of the Turn Based style RPG gamer will love it.
