FOR THE KING!
For The King is a turn-based roguelike RPG that can be played solo or cooperatively online and features strategic adventuring, turn-based combat, and persistent choices. Players must survive cunning enemies and creatures, wicked weather and brutal traps in their quest to solve the mysterious death of the king and bring order to the land. I first discovered this game via a German Twitch streamer by the name of Deela! (https://www.twitch.tv/deela) For The King currently has 53K followers on Twitch and I have been enjoying spectating this game a lot! One of my favorite things about this game is the connectivity and teamwork players can have with each other! Let’s jump into the story here!
The King is dead, murdered by an unknown assailant. Now the once-peaceful kingdom of Fahrul is in peril. 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 or online co-op, on an epic quest to find what answers you can. Brave the relentless elements, battle creatures both monstrous and evil, sail across the great seas, and delve deep into the many caves and dungeons that dot the land. In For The King, every turn matters.
Fight and die as a party in brutal and intense turn-based combat using a unique slot system for attacks or special skills and abilities. Find and gather herbs for your trusty pipe to heal your wounds and cure your ailments. Amass ancient artifacts and treasure that will help you on your adventures. Set up a safe camp for the evening or brave the horrors that nightfall brings. Collect Lore and use it to strategically and permanently unlock the mysteries and mechanics of the places you find for use in future adventures. How you decide to save the land is entirely up to you. For the King!
