The gameĀ is an indie RPG that combines roguelike elements with tabletop to create an adventure spanning realms. You can take on the game’s challenges on your own or team up with a friend in both local and online multiplayer modes. The gameplay mixes turn based combat and strategy with roguelike elements. Maps, events, and quests are procedurally generated so each play through will be unique. Here is the For The King announcement trailer.

 

Before you venture into Fahrul, be forewarned. The press release says that none who’ve gone before you and attempted this quest have ever returned. That leaves one question. Can you defy the odds and succeed where all of your predecessors have failed?

For The King is also available on Xbox One and Steam. You can also find out more at the developers’ official website. Lastly, here are a handful of screenshots that were also included in todays’ press release:

 

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
