About

The Iron Oath is a turn based tactical RPG set in a dark fantasy world. Recruit and manage a roster of adventurers across decades and centuries, and send them on missions where they must confront their mortality. Every decision made carries weight and can have a minor or major influence on the world around you. As you and your guild progress, the world changes dynamically, opening up new paths to follow and resulting in a unique experience for every playthrough.

Feature List:

  • A large and dynamic overworld to traverse: 9 regions with over 50 towns and cities to visit. Cities can be overtaken, destroyed and rebuilt, and various factions can emerge, rise and fall. A playthrough can potentially last hundreds of years, resulting in many changes to the initial world state.
  • In-depth roster management: Characters will age and die frequently in combat and you will be required to recruit new members and keep them satisfied. Your guilds reputation in the world will shift depending on your actions, presenting the opportunity to create both allies and enemies.
  • Variety of Classes: Each class has their strengths and weaknesses which you will need to take into account when assembling your party. We will be launching with at least 12 different classes, allowing for many different options when it comes to tactics.
  • Hand crafted and dynamic missions to complete: Many missions will be generated dynamically based on the state of the world, but there will also be unique hand crafted questlines for you to play through, including the main storyline.
  • Numerous environments to explore: Missions will occur in a variety of indoor and outdoor environments filled with a variety of enemies, secrets, traps and long forgotten artifacts.
  • Tactical turn based combat: Combat occurs on a hex grid and you must figure out how best to navigate each enemy encounter. Proper party composition and resource management(from both items and abilities) is vital.
  • Unique character development: Every recruitable character has their own personal backstory that shapes their motives, personality and traits.
  • Dynamic dialogue: Characters have minds of their own and will have a variety of things to say during a mission, from simple conversation with one another to bringing up a past experience that may be relevant to the task at hand.
  • Decisions matter: Choices bear consequences in many forms. Choosing to assault a trade cart on your journey could result in a powerful faction sending assassins after you.
  • A fleshed out world backstory to uncover: NPC's are not fountains of knowledge. Many secrets remain in the world and you will need to discover things on your own through context and other avenues.
  • Dark orchestral soundtrack by Alex Roe: Alex is well known for his Dark Souls remixes and we're thrilled to have him in charge of our soundtrack.

It has been a long time since we created our IndieDB page, and we have a lot of new things to show you! For those who aren't familiar with our project, it's a medieval fantasy tactical RPG where you recruit & manage a roster of characters, all wrapped up in a dynamic overworld filled with tons of stories and missions to complete.

A compilation of character animations for The Iron Oath


Over the last few months we've reworked outdated enemy designs, added new animations and effects, polished our UI, and have continued to iterate on our combat system. We've also just begun adding some new environments to the game, but we'll cover that in a future update.

In early June we released our first pre-alpha gameplay teaser showing off 5 minutes of combat. We've received a great response so far and while it's still rough and requires improvement, we're happy that the community seems to be behind the general concept and direction of the game.


Since the new year we've been preparing for our eventual Kickstarter, which we are happy to announce will be launching next month on August 9th. Reaching our goal will allow us to continue to work full time on our game and fund additional aspects of development like music, sound and additional art and animation. In the meantime, we would appreciate your support on our Thunderclap Campaign to ensure our Kickstarter gets off to a good start :)

My son bought the Mario Monopoly Gamer board game for his birthday. Surprisingly, a lot of fun. Better than normal Monopoly and much faster.
