For the King

For the King is an interesting hybrid that blends the elements of JRPGs, roguelikes, and strategy games, developed by the independent studio IronOak Games. The game takes place in a fantasy land engulfed by chaos. Heroes, led by the player, decide to defeat the evil forces. Both the world and the adventures within it are generated procedurally. Each time we start, we will feel as if we were playing a different, new game. Gameplay in For the King focuses on exploration (our party moves in turns through a map divided into hexagonal tiles, traveling not only on foot, but also by boat) and fighting with the encountered enemies. Our victory in battle depends on how, and when, we use our party members' abilities and on how good their equipment is. For the King offers a wide range of game modes, both single player and multiplayer. The game has good looking, colorful, and cartoonish visuals.

For the King for PC / Windows is an interesting genre hybrid that blends elements of JRPGs, roguelikes, and strategy games developed by the independent studio IronOak Games.

The Plot

The game takes place in the kingdom of Fahrul located in a typical fantasy world. After the king’s death, Fahrul is consumed by chaos. The queen has nothing else to do but ask her subjects for help. We will lead a party of heroes who will try to face the dangers that threaten the kingdom.

Mechanics

We observe the action in For the King for PC / Windows from an isometric point of view. Gameplay is based on exploration. Our team moves around the map made of hexagonal tiles. We can travel either on foot or by boat. Given the situation in which the Kingdom is right now, the map is filled with enemies present not only on the surface, but also in the dungeons. Sooner or later we are forced to fight. Combat is turn-based, and our victory depends on how, and when, we use our heroes’ abilities (we can have archers, mages, and warriors in our party, among others) and on how good is their equipment. We can heal our wounds by using the herbs we collected during our adventures and by camping.

Interestingly, the map, events, and adventures are generated prodecurally, increasing the game’s replayability.

Game Modes

For the King has a wide range of game modes. We can play alone or with other players. Coop can be played online or in a hot seat mode.

Techical Aspects

For the King for PC / Windows has good-looking 3D visuals that have colourful, cartoonish style.
