Unforgiving Trials the Darkest Crusade is just released on itch.io . We are pleased to announce that after a lot of hard work we have finaly published our first game. Here is a bit about the story and gameplay of the game and if you are interested please check it out in the itch store.
The land is Cursed. Dark horrors have conquered the kingdom of men. Countless brave adventurers have attempted to cleanse this evil. None have returned...
A nobleman enters the inn seeking adventurers to join him on his holy quest. Once again a small fellowship departs on it's quest to vanquish the evil that torments the land. Now the fate of the kingdom rests upon the shoulders of one brave party. A heavy burden weighs upon their souls, for now they have to face the Unforgiving Trials.
Every 20 years Corruption spreads across the lands inflicting terror and fear in the hearts of villagers. No one knows the reason for this calamity except the old King who perished when the hordes swarmed the Capital city. Many tried to reach the king in attempt to gain any knowledge or insight to fight the curse. Yet it all proved futile as no one ever returned to tell the tale. The story begins in a bustling inn along the road that leads east towards the Capital. A mysterious young lord ventures forth only with his most trusted guardian and a pouch full of coins. It is up to him to recruit a party of the very best adventurers: knights, wizards, thieves and oddballs. Recruit whoever it takes to reach the old King and reclaim the lands of man. While your quest seems straightforward it is certainly not an easy task as vile beasts and threatening monstrosities lurk the realm, ready to strike you down at the first sign of weakness.
Embark on an epic adventure to save the lands. Form a party by selecting 4 different adventurers from a pool of over 12 unique classes. Battle your way through the cursed lands scaling the highest mountains and exploring the darkest dungeons. Face more than 30 unique challenging bosses in order to reach the capital of the kingdom.

We are a team of five video game enthusiasts with a childhood dream of making our own video games witch laid dormant till now. Every member of our team is a fan of old school JRPG genre. It's our dream to revitalize its turn based battle system witch is shunned more and more every year in favor of more action oriented combat. For this reason we decided that our first project will be battle oriented JRPG in order to reignite the passion of old school turn based combat.
Unforgiving Trials: The Darkest Crusade is now in late beta( it is done but we want to make constant improvements for the next 3-4 months). While our game is fully playable and ready to be released, we are still working hard every day to improve it. Not only are we conducting in depth difficulty and balance testing, we are also making sure our game is bug free and well polished. We think playing our game will provide you a very enjoyable and memorable experience with over 10 hours of interesting dialogues, challenging combat and occasional frustrations (caused by extremely hard boss fights). But with some creative thinking and a bit of tinkering with your party, you will be able to overcome any challenge. In the end, we plan to support this project for a long time and continue to expand it every day. We have many updates planned and some already in the making.
You can expect the following:
- Visual update of graphical assets with our new artwork
- New and improved skill animations
- Addition of at least 2 extra classes
- Brand new enemies and bosses
- 3 FREE content updates that expand the story after the game is released
- iOS and Android port of the game
We have worked long and hard to make this game and we hope that you will see past our dated graphics and enjoy the gameplay we worked so hard on. Please understand that there might be some slight bugs and if you ever encounter one please let us know so we can fix it in the weekly updates. The game is currently on steam Greenlight and we would kindly ask you to support us there wight your vote. Thank you.
We wish you all a great adventure.
