Rathguarde is planned to be a Sidescrolling RPG Action Sandbox Hack'n'Slash Adventure Fantasy game, with a cool industrial feel to it, and a rich storyline, with three races: Goblins, Dwarves, and Elves. We hope to make it fully functional in both Single-Player and Multi-Player modes, with Trading, Combat with Monsters and other enemies, magic/skills (both generic and race-specific), machinery and contraptions, a vast array of items, both mundane and magical, including a huge armoury of weapons and armour, a leveling/experience system, so your character almost completely customizable, tailored to suit your play-style, and a new and unqiue "You vs the World" type theme, where the world itself is out to get you... Rathguarde is currently in it's Alpha stages (We're working on Alpha 4 at the moment), so while we get the base engine up and running, it'll be free (although when we start charging, it won't be much) We're completely open to any help/suggestions/hate you may have :)
Alpha 1.0 of Rathguarde is live! Also, some other news.

Well here we are! Rathguarde Alpha 1.0 got full authorization, meaning it is completely clean of all the bad stuff you don't want, and now open for public download.
Also, Leon has joined us here on Indie DB, but you will know him as Foxtrot070. Rees has also joined us here, and is known as UniformSierra. Also, i went ahead and made a better preview for the Alpha 1.0 download file:
Also, we created the all new logo for Flashfire Games:
The Font we used for this is a free-use commercial font by someone named Jason Kottke, and is a cute wee pixel font, which we will now be using for most of the textual-type stuff in Rathguarde
We are eternally grateful to Jason, for his great work. So share the love!
