About For The King

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!

"For the King isn’t hesitant to punish players for dumb moves or unlucky rolls."

"If you aren’t a fan of rogue-likes or your not a fan of turn-based combat I still urge you to give For the King a shot. I avidly loath just about every turn-based game I’ve...
76 / 100
"A great RPG with many hours of content to enjoy and a high difficulty level, but technically a little simple."

Very nice roguelike turn-based RPG board game for parties of up to 3, it's got classes, gear, RNG, unlockables and interesting mechanics. Cool presentation and 5 campaigns included. Recommended with friends!

TL;DR = it's a good roguelike with RPG elements and fun, turn-based combat gameplay. Highly recommend. For The King scratches a lot of disparate itches for me. It has inventory and party management aspects in line with your typical RPGs, as well as a leveling system which determines, in part, some character stats. Much of that, though, is decentralized and dependent upon which items you equip. Stats such as magic damage can be independently increased through use of consumables, however. Each run of this roguelike begins with you selecting 3 characters from pre-existing classes and fiddling with their appearance and other aspects. Every playthrough will progress differently based upon your luck, skill, and chosen difficulty. Playing on higher difficulty levels is high risk, high reward in the literal sense as your loot is of higher quality in general on higher difficulties.

Great game especially with a group. Sunk 100 hrs in it so far. Took 90 hrs for 100% achievements with two different groups (got the achievements for both groups not just for me.)
