About the Game
“My liege! My liege! Oh great tyrannical one, put down that tankard and dust off your Tome of Despotism, for thine kingdom oppressing skills are needed once more. We must act quickly, for a plague of happiness and free-will is spreading throughout the realm. I've sent for the executioner. We must crush this rebellion and behead all those responsible! Oh yes, and your Mother sent word. Can you do tea and crumpets at 4 o'clock?"
About Folk Tale
Folk Tale is a sandbox fantasy city builder strategy game in which you lead a ragtag band of peasants in growing a small settlement into a thriving market town, while the dastardly Slavemaster Urzal and his minions plot your downfall. Sound the rallying call and head out into the wilds with parties of heroes to fight back the tide of evil in a game of endless possibilities.
Rule with tyranny and oppression, or liberalism and justice. Play as a merciless expansionist hell-bent on destruction, or as a gold-hoarding mercantilist who'll sell their own grandmother for a handful of coin. With random events and dynamic story, in Folk Tale you never know how the story will unfold.
