It's been a long time. Released 30 years ago, Tales of the Unknown: The Bard's Tale was released to glowing reception and quickly became a defining role-playing game of the 80s, inspiring countless games and putting Interplay and Brian Fargo on the map. But it's been many years since we had a follow-up to the series. In 2004, Brian and inXile released The Bard's Tale, a console-oriented spin-off that was well received, but even then the team knew it wasn't necessarily a true follow-up to the classic games.
Now, the same team that brought you Wasteland 2 in 2014 invites you to lend your support once again for The Bard's Tale IV. As a sequel to the original trilogy by Interplay and Brian Fargo, The Bard's Tale IV will revitalize the dungeon crawling and CRPG genres with gorgeous visuals, Gaelic music, and fast-paced dynamic phase-based combat... not to mention all the twisting, mind-bending dungeons you can handle.
The game won't be possible without the backing of our amazing and generous community. On the 30th anniversary of Tales of the Unknown: The Bard's Tale, help us return back to Skara Brae and bring back the dungeon crawl! These kinds of games would not exist under a traditional publishing model, and we need your support to make them a reality. Please lend your aid and back The Bard's Tale IV on Kickstarter today.
