Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“For the King has been in development for over 2 years during which time we’ve had a successful Kickstarter campaign along with an extended closed beta for our backers. This has produced a fun game with a high degree of variety, polish, and stability. We now feel that the game is ready to be played by the public, especially those willing to help shape the game through their feedback and suggestions. If you’re willing to put up with the occasional bug or balancing issue in trade for being a part of the development process, then Early Access is for you. If you would prefer a perfectly balanced bug free experience then we suggest waiting until the final version.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The goal is to be in Early Access for roughly 6 months (give or take a few months). The length of time will largely depend on community feedback and requested features.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will add support for a balanced 2 player adventure (currently only the single player and 3 player coop adventures have been balanced). New loot and equipment, including the majority of Kickstarter Backer items will be slowly introduced throughout Early Access. The final version will also contain the Frost Realm and Jungle Realm, along with new enemies and encounters. We’ll also be unlocking several Points of Interest like the Warrior’s Arena, The Mage Dungeon, The Water Temple, and more.
In addition, we'll also be adding support for Steam Trading Cards, Steam Achievements, Cloud Saves and language support for French, Spanish, German, Italian, and possibly Russian.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The core adventure is complete from beginning to end and the first couple Acts have received significant polish and balancing. Currently only the single player and 3 player coop adventures have been tuned. All cooperative modes can be played both locally and online. There are still some rough edges which we’ll be polishing based on your feedback and we’ll be adding new content up to and beyond our full release. The Lore Store (which contains persistent unlockables) is functioning but will grow significantly in size prior to full release.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The game will be full price after Early Access so gather your party and take advantage of our EARLY ACCESS DISCOUNT!

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“IronOak Games has been working with it’s community since we Kickstarted For The King over a year and a half ago. We value feedback and suggestions more than anything else and will be in constant communication with players on our forums, on the discussion boards and various other outlets. We’ve already implemented many great ideas from our backers and can’t wait to hear more from our extended family. You might even have an adventure or two together with us online!”

Hotfix 1.1.04

Hi all!

We decided we'd throw out some good bug fixes we have stacked up so you could enjoy play on the weekend.

Special thanks to everyone who is reporting them, and recording the steps, along with getting us the save games and output_logs. Couldn't fix these without you!

Bug Fixes
  • Fixed a game Breaker where a character dead in the overworld would cause a hang if the rest of the party entered and completed a dungeon
  • Fixed a Game Breaker where accepting two sidequests with the same pickup location would result in a hang
  • Restore spells now properly restore characters across the network
  • Attacking a Scourge's Haunt will correctly pull in players respecting their combat range, and disregarding what realm they're in if it happens to be different (eg across the water)
  • Fixed a mislabelled help entry

If you're Canucks like us: Happy Canada Day!

Patch Notes 1.1.01



Greetings Adventurers! JayNic here.

"Oh JayNic, what's that all over your image..."

That's our Localization, JoePlayer! It means we now fully support, and encourage our international players to party wipe gloriously in their mother tongue!

"Uhh ok."

To select a language, just hit the globe in the main menu.



 

Also... not to brag or anything, but this could be a great tool for you to learn that other language you always wanted. Just sayin'



 

We've also added a shiny new interface for Battle Encounters to help make things clear.





 

Changes/Features
  • Localization!
  • New Battle Encounter screen clarification
 
Bug fixes
  • A few minor graphical fixes
  • Fixed an issue where a sea cave would not pull in all party members
 

For the King!

About This Game

The King is dead, murdered by an unknown assailant. Now the once peaceful kingdom of Fahrul is in chaos.

With nowhere left to turn and stretched beyond her means, the queen has put out a desperate plea to the citizens of the land to rise up and help stem the tide of impending doom. Set off with your make-shift party, either single player, local, or online co-op. Choose to split your party up and cover more ground, or stick together for protection. A sound strategy can mean the difference between life and death.

For The King is a challenging blend of Strategy, JRPG Combat, and Roguelike elements. Each play through is made unique with procedural maps, quests, and events. Brave the relentless elements, fight the wicked creatures, sail the seas and delve into the dark underworld. None before you have returned from their journey. Will you be the one to put an end to the Chaos?

Fight and die as a party in fast paced and brutal turn-based combat using a unique slot system for attacks and special abilities. Find and gather herbs for your trusty pipe to heal your wounds and cure your maladies. Set up safe camps or brave the horrors that nightfall brings.

Just remember adventurer, you do this not for the riches or fame but for your village, for your realm, For The King!
