The king has been assassinated, throwing Fahrul into chaos. Luckily, players will be able to bring peace to the kingdom through combat and exploration, either alone or with an on- or offline pal in roguelike RPG For The King.
The low-poly kingdom of Fahrul is generated on each run at the game, ensuring players never know what dangers and opportunities await them when they arrive. Once there, though, players can stick together or split their parties up, depending on whether they wish to discover more or stick to safety in numbers. Monsters won’t go easy on a broken party, though, so players will want to have their best powers put into each character’s ability slots if they hope to live long.
For The King draws from elements of tabletop games with its maps, and also for its use of multiple players working through the same game world.Up to three online and offline allies can help players work through the game’s challenges, but may have to agree on a plan lest both parties find themselves dead. Even if they do fail, some weapons may persist through multiple playthroughs, letting players keep some of their progress.
For The King is available now on Steam.
