Crown Champion: Legends of the Arena now on Steam Greenlight!

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=739468034

From the creators of The Deed, The Deed: Dynasty and the Space Pilgrim Saga comes a fantasy RPG/Management simulator set in the ruthless world of gladiatorial combat.

We stand at the death of an empire.

For three hundred years, the eight cities of the Crownlands have been ruled by the ancient throne of Aldmoor.

Now the northern earls have risen up in revolt, and King Darius has been overthrown and executed by his own council. His former marshall Ademar has seized the throne, while much of the realm has returned to the days of squabbling petty kingdoms.

In chaotic times such as these, it is possible for even a lowly commoner to rise high in the world.

The people cry out for blood and entertainment. The brutal games of the arena provide both in equal measure. Now is your chance to establish a house and train a worthy team of fighting slaves who might someday compete in the grandest of all arenas.

Their glory will be your glory. Before the sun sets on this once-mighty empire, there is still time to carve out a legacy in blood and steel ...


Features:

  • Choose your character's appearance, name your House and shape your own backstory through dialogue options over the course of the game.

  • Inherit a dilapidated estate and a couple of fledgling fighters, and then over time develop it into a prestigious academy for your team of fighting slaves. Restore the derelict buildings and hire new staff to serve your needs, from doctors and trainers to cooks and scribes.

  • Develop relationships with whichever fighters you choose to acquire from the slave ship, each of whom comes with a unique personality and background.
  • Oversee your fighters' training and purchase new weapons and armour that fits their class and fighting style.

  • Progress through twelve arenas and dozens of opponents to reach the royal arena in the city of Aldmoor, where your slaves will fight for the glory of the king and queen!

  • And of course, you must have a life outside of the arena. Find a husband or wife to share in your glory. Build stables and start keeping a team of racing horses to bring more money into your household. Become engaged with the turbulent politics of the realm, following a series of 'choice and consequence' based storylines and various side-quests along the way.

About This Game

A keenly dark twist on the traditional murder mystery setting, The Deed is an Adventure/RPG game about getting away with murder.

Arran Bruce, the rightful heir to Dunshiel House, returns to his family home after discovering that his abusive father has decided to disinherit him from his Will in favour of his sadistic, deranged young sister. In a fit of anger and greed, Arran has decided to remove his sister from the equation in order to restore his own inheritance. Can he manage to get away with such a foul deed?

  • Meet the Family:
    Explore Dunshiel House and encounter Arran's twisted, dysfunctional family and their servants. Take care, though - everything that you say or do can have an impact on the outcome of The Deed!

  • Choose the Weapon:
    A rope, a candlestick or good old-fashioned rat poison? There are many household items that can be put to a dark and nefarious use. Choose carefully from ten possible murder weapons, bearing in mind who might become a suspect as a result of your selection.

  • Plant the Evidence:
    Father, mother, maid, butler ... any of these individuals could take the blame for your heinous act, if you can find the right evidence, plant it in the right location and manage to raise the suspicions of the Inspector.

  • Face the Inspector:
    When the deed is done, it's time to face the music and be interviewed by the wily, perceptive Inspector. Can you dodge his questions and avert his suspicions? Will you walk away a free man? Many possible endings await ...
