Battle with your squad against swarms of enemies on a tile based map. Hence the combat aspect of Fort Triumph relies on your ability to outwit enemies. While using the environment, sharp tactical senses and smart use of the abilities. Such as dropping a pillar on the enemy.

Combat Features

  • Destructible Cover – objects on the map can provide cover, be destroyed, or manipulated. Take caution where you place your heroes since the same rules apply to you.
  • Dynamic Environment – Push, pull and topple objects, kick enemies into each other or against walls. Drown them in deep waters, or even manipulate large objects to create new passageways.
  • Permadeath – In most fantasy stories the heroes always overcome. Well, this isn’t this kind of story. In the heat of battle there are no second chances. If a hero dies, there is no turning back.
  • Various Mission Goals – Not all battles are the same. The various goals may include assassinations, artifact hunts, rescue and defensive missions, ambushes, and more.


Fort Triumph Team plans to make each run relatively short. Yet both fun and unique across Linux, Mac and Windows PC.

The locales and areas on the campaign map are random. So the routes and quests are always different. The battlefields are also random. Players will never know for sure where the enemies will come from. Or where to find the hidden treasures on the map for the tactical RPG.


The fantasy of Fort Triumph is filled with magic and ruthlessness, thus a group of specially trained combatants is needed to succeed in this unforgiving world.

  • Mage – Schooled in the arts of the arcane, the Mages are powerful and dangerous.
    Able to manipulate the elements of the earth and perform highly effective spells from a safe distance, this group of mystics are as power-hungry as they are wise.
  • Paladin – A beacon of stability in a chaos-wreathed world.
    These heroic soldiers inspire courage in an ally and fear in the heart of a foe. The Paladin is a holy warrior, capable of dealing massive blows and absorb the heat in the frontlines of battle.
  • Ranger – Hawks of the ground. These rogues with their extraordinary vision are deadly from afar as they are from the shadows. Rangers are naturally adept at traversing difficult terrains and getting in the most difficult areas to flank their quarry unseen.
  • Savage – Your friendly neighborhood cannibal! These guys are warm hearted and warm-blooded altogether. With a short temper and fetish for death and bones, the Savages will tear to pieces whoever dares to face them, with nothing but their bare hands.



In Fort Triumph, no two heroes are the same. Each will have their own personality and will react differently to certain events. The uniqueness of the characters, their opinions and behavior. Hence what gives grace to the adventure.


As expected from a hardcore D&D game, the world is rich with all sorts of monsters, and each class of monsters have their own hierarchy of combatants; goblin shamans, boar riders, cackling skeletons and more.

The tactical RPG Fort Triumph is looking for Kickstarter support for Linux, Mac and Windows PC. And if you have yet to try the Free Demo, do so it’s worth playing.
