Description

The Iron Oath is a turn-based tactical RPG that is set in a dark fantasy world. Recruit, manage, and embark on missions with a roster of adventurers, testing the limits of their mortality. Every decision made carries weight and can have a minor or major influence on your characters and the world that surrounds them. As you and your guild progress, the world changes dynamically, enabling new storylines to discover and resulting in a unique experience for every playthrough.

History

The Iron Oath was conceptualized back in late 2015, with Darkest Dungeon being a pretty large influence. Originally, we had planned for combat to be more like a traditional JRPG but we later decided to completely overhaul the combat, turning it into a much more tactical system and allowing characters to freely move around the combat grid.

We've been working on the game nearly full-time for the last year and are now running a Kickstarter campaign that will allow us to continue to do so.

Features

  • Tactical turn-based Combat: Deadly foes, traps and destructible objects means one misstep could be your party‚Äôs undoing. Proper planning and execution is vital to your success.
  • A Large and Dynamic Overworld: 9 regions with over 50 hubs to visit. Cities can be overtaken, destroyed and rebuilt; while various factions can emerge, rise and fall.
  • In-depth Guild Management: Control your guild's finances, resources, alliances and roster. Your characters will age, retire and frequently die in combat
  • Decisions Matter: Your choices bear consequences and they can affect your characters, your guild and the many factions that exist throughout the world.
  • Character Development: Every recruitable character has their own personal backstory, incorporating events that have taken place during your playthrough.
