Road of Kings Releasing Soon
Brad talked about Road of Kings back in his PAX East coverage last year, but we hadn't heard much about it since. Well, Dancing Sorcerer Games has contacted us and let us know that it should be released later in January. Road of Kings is a single player game that, from the looks of it, resembles a turn-based adventure game (like Runebound (Second Edition)) mashed together with a Sorcery! style gamebook. I'm probably not doing it justice, but it looks cool enough that I want to try it out. In the game, you play a barbarian who can enlist the help of followers (or not, if you choose). Followers take the place of experience points and leveling, it seems, as you acquire them as you get richer and more powerful. Then, you explore the huge hex map and have a gamebook-style, story-based adventure using your followers to counteract enemies in combat. Just watch the video...it does a much better job than I'm doing.
Oh, did I mention that it's coming for both iOS and Android later this month? It is. And all for $3.
