DESCRIPTION
A unique hybrid between turn-based tactical games and traditional, character-centric RPGs. Knight’s Tale is a modern retelling of a classic Arthurian mythology story filtered through the dark fantasy tropes, a twist on the traditional tales of chivalry.
EXPERIENCE
Oh how the Round Tables has turned! Play as King Arthur’s nemesis, Sir Mordred, in this Dark Fantasy telling of role reversals, RPG, Tactics and Base (Re)Building of Camelot as you battle your way through Avalon after being resurrected by the Lady In The Water when she realizes she has made a grave error by returning King Arthur to Avalon after you (Sir Mordred) and King Arthur put each other to end on the battlefield. You both dead! But now you guys are back like a couple of pets from the semetary acting all weird and shit.


This is my “has most potential” top 5 game of the year for me. Please don’t die on the vine! Early Access or late KickStarter Buy in?
Art: I loooove the art in this game. Such a great style combining dark fantasy with arthurian legend visually…tasty!
Animation: In a world of Knights with heavy armor and large blunt weapons it is great to see animation that has weight to it.
Music/Effects: The music is nice but repeats a lot. The SFX are really meaty and crisp. I like it!
V/O: A little sparse for me. But it is mostly serviceable. Some early cut scenes have some weird syncing issues.
World Building: There is a lot to Arthurian Lore and this is an amazing tale of turning the Round Table on Arthur.
Currency: Coins and Resources that you aquire on missions or by selling items at the merchant.
Gameplay/Loop: Manage your Darkest Dungeon Base (Camelot) and RPG venture into missions to encounter X-com like battles.
AI/NPCs: Not too smart. But can be difficult at times due to the number of and power of the groups you encounter.
Controls: Pretty simple control scheme. Controller support coming. WASD movement or my prefered point and right click.
Interface: Layout is serviceable. Visually, it is beautiful! Look at that artwork!
Replay/Endgame: Not a lot of content just yet. Perhaps 5 hours. But a real promise roadmap of Early Access monthly additions.
Score: 8 and a half sword swings out of 10 please don’t abandon this game or I may cry’s
