Full Release is here!



Yes that’s right, Adventurers: Full Release is here!

"Is it everything we’ve dreamed?!"

We sure hope so, Joe Player. We’re so excited and thankful for our wonderful helpful community throughout Early Access.

We’ve experienced the trials and tribulations of all that Early Access had to offer. From great feedback, amazing stories of victory, to terrible bugs that had to be quashed and everything between.

"It was an adventure all on its own"

It sure was. And we’re happy say that we’re not done yet. Of course, we’re going to be in full on support mode for the next while. But once things level off, we will start scheming internally on the next best way to make you all party wipe.

For now, enjoy our three adventures!
For The King


Dungeon Crawl


Frost Adventure



Again, thank you so much to our Kickstarter Backers, Early Access Community, and to all you newcomers joining the quest. We wouldn’t be here without you.

Sincerely IronOak Games

p.s. - Keep those discussions coming in on the Discussion forums, and Discord!

Full Release Hype and Patch Notes

Greetings Adventurers!

"Full release on Thursday! #hype"

Yes! We're excited as well, Joe Player. Officially, we're all set up for release this
Thursday, April 19th at 8AM Pacific Time

This has been our longest time between patches. Namely so we could really focus on the quality of the final product containing so much new content, and of course a whole new Adventure.

Those loyalists of you who joined Early Access and have been playing will really just treat this update like any other patch. With that in mind: we want to share patch notes with you now as we will not be posting patch notes on Thursday.

"Let's have it then"

Sure thing. I should mention, that since this is one of (if not the) most robust updates ever: I will not be listing out everying in utmost details - just noteworthy items.

Noteable New Features/Changes
New Adventure - Frost Adventure
Yup. That's right. Now included as another adventure to augment the original "For The King" mode, and "Dungeon Crawl" comes the Frost Adventure. Taking place on the sunny beaches of the Rogue Isles, quest to bring the Queen the perfect Mai Tai while you try to find a bathing suit that doesn't make you self-conscious.

"lol wut..."

nah, just a prank bro... It's a Frost Adventure. It's cold.



  • New realms
  • New enemies
  • New items
  • New weapons
  • New mechanics
  • New story
  • New achievements

New Character Skins/Genders
There are now male and female variants for each class!


You can now play Male or Female versions of all classes. In addition to that, there are also some hidden skins to uncover through play.

New Combat Timeline
The combat timeline has been completely re-worked to be clearer, and to make critical time-based strategies even easier to plan and execute.



We now show each character in their specific turn order, and update the turn order as needed when status effects change their speed or position in the queue.

With this new timeline: we've changed slightly how some of the attacks and status effects work in order to be more clearly represented. Things like slow, speed up, reset, or rush will now have an immediate visible effect on the timeline.

Old Saves are not compatible
Don't despair! We will have a legacy branch up for a while for those who really need to finish that quest. So you'll be able to swap to that, and back over to the main branch when you're ready.

Other Changes
  • Too many bug fixes, and polish items to notate...
  • Major balance adjustments. From enemies, to damage, to Chaos
  • New animations and models for both new assets, and old!
  • In game encyclopedia has been re-worked and updated
  • Lore payouts reworked
  • Loads of Controller love

I also want to explicitly note that the "Bug Report" button will now be hidden by default. If you wish to continue supporting us with reports: you can enable it in the Options menu


We're really proud of the game so far, and we want to thank you all for your continued support and feedback. We're striving hard to make the game stand out from the crowd, and be a fun and unique experience.

We're not done yet, either.

See you Thursday!

Out Now in Full Release!

For The King is now available in full release! We'd like to thank all of our Early Access players for their support, and welcome to all new players! Fahrul awaits, happy adventuring!

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!
