For the King, the low-poly RPG adventure from Ironoak Games is headed to full launch this April, and also to consoles (Switch, PS4, and XB1) in 2019. Today, Curve Digital announced their partnership with Ironoak to publish the game on all platforms. Driven by a desire to create a game they wanted to play, the founders of Ironoak (who worked on titles like Sleeping Dogs) quit their day jobs specifically to make For The King – and that passion and love helped the game become a huge Kickstarter smash in 2015, before going on to enjoy Steam Early Access success in 2017.
About For the King:
The once peaceful kingdom of Fahrul is in chaos – the King is dead, murdered by an unknown assailant. 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. In For The King, players can choose to create a makeshift party, either splitting up to cover more ground or sticking together for protection. A sound strategy can mean the difference between life and death.
Each play through is made unique with procedural maps, quests, and events. Players must brave the relentless elements, fight the wicked creatures, sail the seas and delve into the dark underworld. Brutal, turn-based combat unfolds using a unique slot system for attacks and special abilities while herbs can be gathered to heal wounds and cure maladies. Safe camps protect from the horror that nightfall brings but players must remember, they do not do this for the riches or fame but for their village and for their realm. For The King!
For The King will leave Early Access on Steam in early April. To coincide with this, the price will increase to from $14.99 to $19.99. Anyone wishing to purchase For The King now will benefit from the reduced price up until full release.
