Reviews

“"The Great War of Jorth" does a great job of leading the player through the world. There are multiple towns to explore and lots of lore to uncover. There is a lot of real estate for the player to get lost in, uncovering something or fighting to level up. Details... Details... DETAILS!! There is a level of detail I wanted to take the time to acknowledge. There is voice acting for every character in the game. This made the stry more entertaining. I was not met with the burden of reading. There is sound for doors and small moments to capture the player's attention.”

“Solid presentation, art, music and feel. Combat is solid too. Reminds me of my favorite old school JRPGs. Looking forward to more.”

Official Launch

Our official release has arrived and we would like to thank everyone who has helped us get this far. The Magician and I would not have been able to do it without all of you.

On a sad note, there has been a medical emergency within the Workingman Productions family that has taken us away from our work on the game. The game is finished and playable through to the end, except in certain circumstances that we are aware of. We are diligently working to iron out these last few glitches but the medical situation has prevented us from completing as much as we had hoped before release. Updates to correct these issues will be forthcoming. We will be targeting the middle of March, 2022 for our first major update to repair the remaining bugs.

Anyone wishing to report bugs to us may do so by emailing tyler@workingman.productions. Please include a save file near the bug, if possible, and a description (as detailed as possible) of what happened.

Thank-you and we hope you enjoy the game.

About This Game

Overview

"The Great War of Jorth" sends you on a grand adventure. Will you stop a mad king, or will darkness devour Jorth? Your choices matter.

Story

"GWOJ" is an epic tale of war, of right versus wrong, of the constant struggle of good people in the face of ultimate evil.

The power hungry King Rydok of Bernal launches an unprovoked war upon their neighbors in Ur. Using surprise to its fullest advantage Bernal pushes the Urians out of most of their territory. In the south they met a much more coordinated response from the Ur Guard. The war came to stalemate, neither side being able to find an advantage.

At the Temple of the Light Grand Master Po receives an omen of a Dark power laying waste to the world. He entrusts his adopted daughter, Suki the youngest person to ever achieve the rank of Grand Master, with a quest to discover the source of this dark power. At the tender age of 17 she leaves the only home she has ever known. Will she ever return?

Five years pass and in that time Draco of Ur, a young and loyal soldier in the Ur Guard earns the respect and admiration of his brothers and sisters in arms on the battlefield. He is summoned before his liege, King Seevet the 17th and tasked with a quest of great importance.

Reports of Bernal raiding parties terrorizing Ur’s allies has brought the war to a new level. Together with the King’s personal guard, the Ninja Enryuu, Draco is to discover the secrets to Bernal’s new successes and put a stop to them. This journey will take Draco across the whole of Jorth in search of powerful allies and a way to stop Rydok’s armies from dominating the world.
