About For The King

About this game

Developed by IronOak Games and published by Curved Games.

An unknown assailant has murdered the king, and what was once a peaceful and prosperous kingdom has fallen into unruly chaos. The queen is desperate and has sent out a plea to all, but no one that has gone on the journey has come back. Will you be able to?

Unique Combat

Thanks to the unique dice-roll-inspired system, the combat is brutal, fast-paced, and fun! Explore to collect herbs, slot attacks and special abilities, and fight and die as a party in this unique game!

Great Replayability!

Every playthrough will feel unique, as the maps, events, quests, and loots will all be procedurally generated! Use Lore between your playthroughs to purchase more Weapons, Items, NPCs, Classes, Events, and much more!

Together... Or Not

You choose whether you play alone or with a friend, whether local or online! Split up to cover more ground or stick together to fend off danger — every choice you make can mean the difference between life and death! 

Tons To Do!

For The King contains all the released expansion content, including Dungeon Crawl, Frozen Expanse Adventure, Gold Rush Un-Cooperative Mode, Into The Deep, and more!

"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...

IGN Spain

76 / 100
"A great RPG with many hours of content to enjoy and a high difficulty level, but technically a little simple."

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.)
