Roll Perception to Detect Incoming Knights of Pen & Paper 2



World Randomly Encounters Exciting New Sequel to Classic Old-school Title

STOCKHOLM — March 2, 2015 — Paradox Interactive, a publisher and developer with plenty of initiative, today announced the forthcoming release of Knights of Pen & Paper 2, coming to PC, iOS, and Android devices. Knights of Pen & Paper 2, the appropriately named sequel to Knights of Pen & Paper +1 Edition, will bring players back to the table, where they can sit and simulate another, different table inside the game (which is about a game). Danger, intrigue, death, role-playing, and roll-playing will return when Knights of Pen & Paper 2 arrives on May 14th.

Use the under-appreciated Appraise skill on this trailer:


Return to the dicey world of Knights of Pen & Paper for a new turn-based adventure, where players get to take on the role of players, and also of the game’s encounter-designing, rules-lawering GM in a fully customizable party. Assemble a group of virtual friends, dress them in class-specific hats, and take on an all-new series of quests, including dynamic dungeons, an improved combat system, new loot and crafting mechanics, and more, as the party faces its greatest challenge yet: the new edition of the ruleset.

Knights of Pen & Paper 2 rolls with the following features:

+2 to Impress: The retro adventure makes the leap from simulated 8-bit graphics to simulated 16-bit graphics, providing players with twice the bits
New Racial Feats: Customize your party members by choosing players such as the Goth or the Rocker, classes such as Wizard or Thief, and for the first time, races such as Dwarves and Elves
A Game of Throws: Face the whims of the d20 in an overhauled combat system, new crafting and loot, dynamically generated dungeons, and a variety of nail-biting saving throws
Entirely Too Many Gaming and Pop Culture Jokes: Seriously

“When you allow people at your company to dress up in wizard robes and suits of armor, sometimes you wind up with games like Knights of Pen & Paper 2,” said Fredrik Wester, CEO of Paradox Interactive. “We’re going to be showing off the game in person this week at GDC. I wanted to reveal it during the DICE conference, but nobody agreed with me.”

This is a very simple looking RPG on the cover but once you get into it, there is plenty of min/maxing to be done. A turn based gameplay makes fits this much more than a normal action type. I love how you can swap in "team members" to the table once you purchase more seats at the table.

Another thing which is probably overlooked in Knights of Pen & Paper, is the dialog of the dungeon master and the players, some really humours lines came out during my playthrough and I would really recommend anyone read through them for a giggle.

The soundtracks can get fairly repetitve but what do you expect for an 8bit style game. I'm up to about twelve hours gameplay and I am still finding new things to try out.

I would 100% recommend this to any RPG/Turn based fan

The Good: Fun premise, mixing the tropes of D&D-style tabletop gaming and Final Fantasy-esque RPG combat, with the usual nods to post-Tolkien high fantasy worlds. There's a solid dose of fun pop culture references (from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Super Mario Brothers in the sewer dungeon, to Pirates of the Caribbean and the Creature from the Black Lagoon in the seaside areas). And it's not just gratuitious name-checking either -- all of it is properly statted out and integrated into the gameplay.

The Bad: Admittedly, it's hardly ground-breaking stuff, especially if you're partial to comedy/parody RPGs. It's not quite as witty or clever as its web-based counterparts like Kingdom of Loathing or Card Hunter. But even as someone who liked both those games, I wasn't disappointed -- I'm now at 10 hours play time and counting.

The Ugly: Less-than-ideal game balance. It definitely appears to favor particular player/class combos over others, to the point that it's damn near impossible to last the higher levels with certain oddball party compositions, which kinda takes out some of the fun.

If you like classic Tabletop/RPGs then this brings the best of both worlds together (Tabletop and Video Games).
Controls are so simplistic and the game runs on very little resources that a lower end mini tablet can run this game without any problems, while still offering that classic RPG challenge.

The references and Easter Eggs that pay homage to older RPG style games are just the + in "+1 Edition"
If you find yourself looking for some time to kill I recommend playing this game (at full price, but you can never beat a good deal).

Didn't think I would like it as it came with the humble bundle, 4 hours in and still a brilliant game, perfect for playing while listening to some random video. Only realizing now how it's basically d&d, such a nerd...

Started the game, played it for 6 hours straight.
In the middle of the night I realized one of my characters said "Lets play this all night long!" and I was actually considering that, but I had to get up early the next day.

10/10

(This is a copy-paste of my Google Play review, since I apparently don't "own" a license to the app and my review was automatically deleted right after posting it) - I purchased it via the Humble Bundle.
This game is a great game! In fact, I got hooked into it to the point I play it instead of Clash of Clans (if I'm not already playing Geometry Dash).

It's so satisfying to be able to have a Dungeons-and-Dragons-like game in my pocket that I can bring anywhere and play at anytime.
The mechanics aren't groundbreaking, but it's included everything that I've forgotten to consider as a Dungeon Master.

The story's full of references to our gaming culture, but towards the end of the game, I felt that the story died after the "you have to save the world" bit... And the grind to the higher levels seemed impossible.
(I mean come on... I've finished all the quests elsewhere and all my characters are only Level 37, despite having to beat Level 50-60 bosses which naturally one-shot them all, and getting gold becomes impossible without having to repeat near-death dungeons as farming lower down becomes more and more redundant as you level up since the bosses are the only thing that actually yields descent (more than 40) gold.)

The only other problem with this game is (only applies to the Android version)... I can't buy the DLC or add gold.

This game is what it seems like, a pixel graphic RPG with a dungeons and dragons style.

    Pros
  • Nice Graphics
  • Good gameplay
  • Everything good about DnD
    Cons
  • Repetitive Gameplay
  • LOTS of grinding
At the end of the day, Knights of Pen And Paper is a good game, despite its constant grinding and repetitive gameplay.

Imagine playing table top D&D, and getting sucked into the world of Nintendo, where you are still playing Table top D&D, only you are playing it as an NES video game. That pretty much sums up this game in a nutshell, only you play it on the PC. It looks like an old school NES game, but incorporates the table top D&D feel, Very interesting concept. Much different than the early video game D&D adventures, this game tries to stay true to old school D&D. I thought it was a fun little game and would recommend it, because it can be picked up for next to nothing or even free and if you enjoy anything D&D related, you should at least give it a try. Get ready for a Nostalgia rush.

Knights of Pen and Paper is what I'd call a sufficiently flawed dungeon-crawler. While the game does allow for a lot of "customization", the upgrade system feels wholly dissapointing.

Upgrades/level-ups are barely even noticable, being slight precentage upgrades that almost always mean next to nothing; The variation of the classes is really where the enjoyment of the customization is. In addition to the lackluster upgrade system, the entire game is grind-ey as all hell. Want to upgrade your armor? be prepared to either walk back-and-forth between town and cave for a couple hours; that or pay through the nose with your hard-earned gold.

The humor/references are cute at times, but get old very fast... with neither making up for the repetitive gameplay.

Per qualsiasi appassionato di giochi di ruolo l’uscita di Knights of Pen&Paper aveva significato una grandiosa summa dei clichè e di situazioni al limite che qualsiasi giocatore (o master) si era ritrovato a sperimentare durante le lunghe sessioni ruolistiche (rigorosamente da tavolo) collezionate nella propria carriera. L’umorismo viscerale, misto ad un buon sistema di combattimento a turni, formavano il cuore pulsante di questo giochino all’apparenza casual ma che invece sapeva garantire una buona profondità nonchè svariate ore di gioco di qualità. L’uscita di una versione riveduta e corretta, che inoltre garantiva anche nuovi contenuti e una revisione del sistema di combattimento, non poteva che essere accolta con gioia.

Se il core del gioco rimane pressochè immutato il più del lavoro fatto è stato quello di aumentare la longevità della campagna principale. La scelta fatta è stata quella di eliminare il concetto di campagna stessa lasciando un’unica grande “trama” su cui innestare tutti i contenuti, compresi quelli che potrebbero venire da future espansioni o DLC. Dimenticatevi quindi la modalità arena e future campagne tutte nuove, ma preparatevi ad un numero davvero buono di nuovi dungeon, mostri nonchè ad una revisione delle abilità dei personaggi e del bilanciamento del sistema di combattimento.

Knight of Pen and Paper è veramente un ottimo gioco, in soli 91 MB.
Grafica pixelosa ma funzionale, un buon RPG in stile D&D che ci porterà di fronte a diverse sfide e situazioni. Abbastanza rigiocabile, e con numerosi oggetti da acquistare, collezionare, e da equipaggiare. La personalizzazione del personaggio è un po' limitata ma fa il suo dovere.

Se amate gli RPG (anche sempliciotti come profondità come questo) e non badate alla grafica, è un must have.

Prima di iniziare ammetto di aver giocato poco, solo 3 ore.

Pro:
-Umorismo e citazioni
-Struttura di combattimento ben strutturato
-Classi strutturate discretamente bene

"Contro":
-La storia non mi è sembrata molto bella (ametto di non aver finito il gioco, da quello che ho fatto non mi sembrà un granchè)
-Può diventare molto noioso, purtroppo i combattimenti non cambiano mai, e per allenarti decidi te i mostri da affrontare, ripetività moltissima
-Microtransazioni , anche se non sono obbligatori e che potete benissimo farne a meno, resta comunque fastidioso che un gioco come questo abbia delle Microtransazioni

Gioco che va sicuramente giocato col Tablet (costa anche poco) , per pc costa parecchio ed è pure "scomodo" se si può dire.

Consigliare lo consiglio perchè è un idea originale ed è strutturato molto bene. A me non è piaciuto per la ripetività purtroppo, ma è un mio capriccio

Questo D&D è stato fatto molto bene, tolta la grafica "vecchiotta" ma cmq simpatica devo dire che è stupendo.
E' come giocare veramente ma con l'unica eccezione che voi comanderete i giocatori.
Se come me vorreste giocare ad un vero D&D ma non avete amici esperti allora prendetelo, ne vale la pena!

Knights of Pen & Paper, originally for iOS, is a turn-based RPG with a novel concept: you take on the role of real-life players in a tabletop game. The camera is set behind a table where up to five of your characters are seated, with the dungeon master on the other side leading you through the story. Dialogue tends to be humorous and frequently goes out of character.

The game begins with character creation, where you must assign your players a real-life persona and one of a dozen traditional RPG classes, each with four skills. The actual gameplay takes place around your table, as if you’re in the middle of all the action, and consists of traveling to locations on a world map and completing quests, which are really just more battles in disguise. In fact, the entire game is simply one battle after another and becomes very repetitive, very fast.

As expected, level-ups provide stat bonuses and allow you to upgrade your skills and wear better equipment. Armor and weapons may only be improved at the blacksmith, but each character has four additional slots for equipping various accessories. In addition to in-game shops, there is a “real-life” shop where you may purchase snacks that provide temporary buffs for your players, as well as decorations and furniture that confer permanent bonuses.

Overall, Knights of Pen & Paper is passable in the context of mobile gaming but completely forgettable when compared to quality games on the PC platform. Considering the price is $9.99 on Steam vs a mere $2.99 on iOS and Android, it’s borderline offensive that the devs left in-app purchases in the game, allowing you to buy gold with your Steam wallet funds. Such a shameless exhibit of its mobile origins is a fitting red flag for a game that also fails to break away from the shallow, repetitive gameplay those origins typically entail.

Throwback RPG which does almost everything right that’s good with the genre; great XP system, classes, skills, character, achievement and item unlock systems - a great game.

I admit, I miss tabletop gaming. I miss the DM trying to kill off my characters. I miss creating ridiculously out-of-the-box characters. Heck, I miss the days of popcorn, Mountain Dew, and just hanging out and rolling some dice. Those days have been gone for me quite some time ago, and yet playing a little game called Knights of Pen and Paper reminded me of those good old days.

Knights of Pen and Paper attempts to mimic tabletop gaming for an accessible audience. Players start by selecting three noobs to join the adventuring party, along with their class and starting skill. Like any tabletop RPG, as the adventuring party explores, kills baddies, and completes quests, they earn experience to level up and gain more skills. Each party member gets one skill point every time they level up and can only put points into one of four skills. While this creates simplicity for those unfamiliar with RPGs, it doesn't provide a lot of variety.

In fact, variety is what Knights of Pen and Paper struggles with throughout its twenty hour campaign. Although the backgrounds mimic an 8-bit style, there isn't much in terms of detail or design. The soundtrack loops, but it feels like there's only three tracks in the entire game. Although there's plenty of classes in the game, many of them are locked and the requirements for unlocking them appear random. The base classes — paladin, mage, cleric, etc. — while classic, are trapped with only four skills, which wouldn't be the case in tabletop gaming.

While variety isn't the game's strong suit, accessibility is. It provides a simple turn-based battle system wherein players can select between attack, skill, defend, item, and flee. This makes for an easy learning experience, but it lacks any real depth that a tabletop game has. The game is also surprisingly grindy, and while it does a great job of teaching players what to expect in encounters (usually enemies three to five levels higher than the adventuring party), it's a bit crazy how much players will have to stop and grind because it's not entirely on par with the party's level. It feels like the developers set out to make a simple RPG to give players the feel of tabletop gaming, but the combat could have benefitted from actual dice rolls on screen to indicate whether or not the player's characters succeeded or fail in their actions. However, with the grindy combat, perhaps adding dice rolls would have just made everything take longer than provide more accessibility. Still, the combat lacks depth and it needs something else to make it a more engaging process.

Dice rolling does exist within Knights of Pen and Paper, it's just not as frequent as it should be. Dice rolls occur when players travel between areas, failures leading to battles, successes leading to safety. Dice rolls occur when players are mining for grindstones or moving through dungeons. These elements are done well and are fairly straightforward, but this game would really benefit if it was implemented into all actions, especially if its goal is to mimic tabletop games. What's further disappointing is the campaign itself. While the writing is charming and hilarious, the majority of the quests are either escort missions, collecting items, slaying some bad dudes, or traveling from place to place for plot purposes. The amount of backtracking in this game is brutal and inexcusable, and even the adventuring party complains about it. It goes back to that problem of accessibility versus variety — on one hand, the campaign should be easy to learn and follow along, on the other hand there should be more to do than then the standard affair. The charm in the writing, and even its awkward translation errors, can only go so far and will likely leave veteran RPGamers wanting something more substantial.

However, Knights of Pen and Paper does succeed in its overall atmosphere. Players get the sense of gamers hanging out, bantering, and asking to pass the Mountain Dew. There is an overal sense that the Dungeon Master is out to kill the adventuring party, and the back and forth within the writing really does work well. The graphics and music, though overly simplistic, are vibrant and give the feeling that players are on an adventure and there is loot to be had. The game is also a fantastic time waster because in its lack of depth it success at being the type of mindless game where players find themselves going, "just one more quest." Considering all of the game's flaws, it admittedly succeeds in the one area that for some people matters most: it's actually fun.

There are some perks in Knights of Pen and Paper's PC release that differ from the original mobile version. For starters, it allows players to leave party members at the tavern, and bring a new adventurers into the party. They can roll for a new character and not feel like they have to start their entire campaign from scratch. There's also an extended campaign for those who want to explore more of what the game has to offer, and there's tons of new dungeons and loot to acquire. The main campaign can be completed in around twenty hours, with the extended campaign offering quite a bit of repaly value. There's also tons of items that can be purchased in shops that can give added bonuses to various stats, which is a nice cosmetic feature.

Knights of Pen and Paper is a sweet little throwback to the days of pen and paper gaming, but its simple approach may not be enough to entice every RPGamer. Yes, the combat is simplistic, but it's fast and easy to roll with. Sure, the story is simple, but it's cute in its presentation. Knights of Pen and Paper's imperfections are many, and yet it's completely easy to sink time into. It's straightforward in its approach and yet, despite its flaws and frustration, I kept playing. Knights of Pen and Paper will never offer gamers a deep experience, but it offers mindless gameplay that admittedly can keep you coming back for more.
