Rogue-like RPG Adventure For The King Debuts in April for PC, Early 2019 for Consoles
For The King, a rogue-like RPG adventure game crowdfunded via Kickstarter in October 2015, will fully launch in early April for PC and in early 2019 for consoles (PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch). Canadian developer IronOak Games, formed in 2015 by industry veterans with experience on titles such as Need for Speed, Dead Rising and Sleeping Dogs, signed a publishing deal with Curve Digital.
Colby Young, Game Designer of IronOak Games, said:
For The King is a passion project for us and very much an homage to the RPG genre. Early Access has been great for the game, allowing us to listen to fans and make the game as strong, polished and fun as possible. Now with its full release and our new publishing deal with Curve, we can’t wait for more players to experience For The King.
For The King has been available via Steam Early Access since late February 2017. User reviews are very positive with an overall 85% rating.
The King is dead, murdered by an unknown assailant. Now the once peaceful kingdom of Fahrul is in chaos.
With nowhere left to turn and stretched beyond her means, the queen has put out a desperate plea to the citizens of the land to rise up and help stem the tide of impending doom. Set off with your make-shift party, either single player, local, or online co-op. Choose to split your party up and cover more ground, or stick together for protection. A sound strategy can mean the difference between life and death.
For The King is a challenging blend of Strategy, JRPG Combat, and Roguelike elements. Each play through is made unique with procedural maps, quests, and events. Brave the relentless elements, fight the wicked creatures, sail the seas and delve into the dark underworld. None before you have returned from their journey. Will you be the one to put an end to the Chaos?
Fight and die as a party in fast paced and brutal turn-based combat using a unique slot system for attacks and special abilities. Find and gather herbs for your trusty pipe to heal your wounds and cure your maladies. Set up safe camps or brave the horrors that nightfall brings.
Just remember adventurer, you do this not for the riches or fame but for your village, for your realm, For The King!
