If you haven’t had enough of procedural generation or rogue-lites, you’re in luck. IronOak Games’ For The King, a rogue-like RPG that’s been on Steam Early Access, will be releasing for PC in April.
The game focuses on a quest to avenge the King of Fahrul with different maps, quests and so on being procedurally generated on each playthrough. Combat is turn-based but there are elements of strategy, build optimization and planning. Along with solo play, there is co-op support, both local and online.
Speaking about the game’s upcoming release, designer Colby Young stated that, “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.”
Originally funded on Kickstarter, For The King went into Early Access in March 2017. The game currently costs $14.99 but on its full launch, the price will go up to $19.99. It currently has a “Very Positive” rating on Steam Early Access based on 2160 reviews. There will likely be a proper day one update to bring the game to its finished state so stay tuned for more information.
