Take a look, see if you like it, wishlist it and be ready for release 1ST SEPTEMBER!

SEVEN TACTICAL-RPGS THAT EVERY DEVELOPER SHOULD STUDY


Ent Saprolling

Gamasutra has published an interesting article about seven tactical RPGs and the main strength of their designs:

http://www.gamasutra.com/view/news/301887/7_great_Tactical_RPGs_that_every_developer_should_study.php

IMHO, any TBS fan should read it. I hope, that one day, Age of Fear series will be cited too as an example of successful franchise. AOF3, here we come!!

Meanwhile, we will try to steal some of their ideas :-D

Have a nice day!

“Age of Fear succeeds because of its combat: using units to protect fragile allies, incorporating hex-based mechanics without the geometric restriction. The result is some satisfying strategy (...)”

About This Game


Age of Fear: The Undead King is a refreshingly fun strategy title that marries a tabletop wargame with elements of RPG. The game features a huge variety of units, a novel hex-free battle system, morale, and flexible multiplayer.

Play as an evil necromancer or a noble knight in two fully voiced story driven campaigns!

FEATURE LIST

  • Two long scenarios - play as an evil necromancer or a noble knight in fully voiced story driven campaigns!
  • Hex-free battle system - units are no longer constrained to artificial grids. Unit's size matters too.
  • Steam Workshop integration - create your own world and share with the community!
  • Easy to Play but Hard to Master - Age of Fear is very easy to pick up but with deep and emergent strategy.
  • Low hardware requirements - the game will even work on that old laptop of yours.
  • Permanent death - all characters that fall in a battle will stay dead - unless an evil Necromancer raises them as Zombies!
  • Diverse enemy roster - game features 160+ unique units with over 250 different spells and skills.
  • AI behaviour is modelled on a neural network system and influence maps. Age of Fear has probably one of the most advanced strategic AI's ever created!
  • Items and artifacts - there are over 100 unique items in Age of Fear, which are randomly distributed. Items not only give bonuses, but also unlock powerful skills and spells.
