“A mature game for mature gamers.”
9/10 – Games Nosh

“It’s pretty rare for me to play a game all the way through more than once, and I’m currently on my fourth run.”
No Score – Geek Factor

“…a streamlined version of clunky, older game mechanics — without feeling “dumbed down” or “casual.” Bastard Bonds is simply more elegant than its predecessors and influences.”
No Score – Tap Repeatedly

About This Game

Justice has failed. The criminal, the deranged, the inconvenient, and the uncomfortable; all are cast across the sea to the greedy island of Lukatt, whose shores let nothing slip free. Whether sinner or saint, you are one of these outcasts, and it is there, in a dark cell on the cold shore of that island, where you will finally cut fate's throat and take control of your own future.

Gather a band of the criminal and the forgotten, forgive their transgressions or ostracize them, use them as workhorses or nurture their trust, slaughter your enemies or spare them, release the conquered or press them into service. Find a way to escape the inescapable, or find a way to bend it to your will.
