Updates and ROADMAP 2018-09-07

Hail Adventurers,

We’ve got a small update for you today, and a tease on a new feature that’s to come that many people have requested.

First, the update. Thanks to everyone who reached out regarding their experiences with the DisconnectByClientTimeout error during game load. We’ve made some even deeper adjustments, and after extensive testing: we’re happy to release it.

Fixes/Changes
  • Further work on the DisconnectByClientTimeout error when loading an online game
  • Fixed a game hang where a character who was poisoned dies in a dungeon without any lives left, but still has a sanctum would not get revived, and cause an endless loop of autosaving and turn switching

Happy Friday!

"YOU’RE NOT DONE YET!"

Huh? Oh right you are, Joe Player: I promised you a teaser. Have a look!



"Is that what I think it is?!"

Yup: Weapon Switching in Combat will be a thing!
  • Any character with an additional weapon in his inventory will have the new icon and option available
  • You’ll be able to pick your desired weapon from a list to equip it
  • This action will take a full combat turn but will still permit belt item use

This isn’t the only thing we’re working on, of course. But we’re not ready to reveal major details on the next major update.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Update 1.0.8.8751

Hey everyone! We have a small - but potentially high impact update for you.

Notably: we’ve done a lot of hard research on problems that some people have when loading a co-op online game, and getting a DisconnectByClientTimeout error.

It’s a really strange one to work on, because it seems to have a lot of moving parts including the quality of internet connection, wifi vs ethernet, the progress of the save, and the speed of the various computers involved.

We’ve made a change that should alleviate some of these occurrences, and we’re eager to see how many people it helps.

It should be noted that this may increase game load times to about 20-ish seconds. We really couldn’t avoid this at this stage, and we hope it’s not too impactful for you.

Fixes/Changes
  • Potential fix for DisconnectByClientTimeout error when loading an online game
  • Fixed a game hang when a character dies on his turn, and at the same time: a Chaos Shrine is revealed
  • Added some behind the scenes play-data analytics gathering (no personal information is collected)

If you have been experiencing this issue in the past, then we’d ask you kindly to let us know - once you’ve updated - if it persists, or has been resolved. Feel free to reach out to us using the in game bug report tool and let us know.

Happy Friday!

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!
