A mix of sophisticated #tactical combat with RPG influences. So this includes character customization, equipment, inventory and the right amount of tabletop. Well worth taking a look into, with a free Demo. Read on…

So is all RPG’s there is adventure, choices and consequences. Therefore viewing campaign map or in the midst of battle. Players will have to make informed decisions that affect how gaming is carried out. So pay attention to certain events and neglect others. Such as risking the death of an experienced hero or sacrifice peasants instead. Fort Triumph is designed to test your judgement and avoid danger.

Developer Fort Triumph Team believe in DRM-Free products and involving the community. So the news that this game will be released on Steam Early Access this summer for Windows PC is impressive. Follow by Linux and Mac, then consoles.

Fort Triump Demo

No news is better than a Free game Download on IndieDB, Gamejolt, Steam.

Fort Triumph is filled with all sorts of terrain, locations and places of interest. So players will battle in mighty castles and ruined outposts. Traversing thick forests and raging rivers. Even exploring crypts, caves, snowy mountains in the tactical RPG.
Settlements like towns and taverns will provide rest to your parties. Then gather strength, hire mercenaries, buy and sell equipment and also get drunk.

Since replayability plays a big part in the gaming experience. Fort Triumph will have multiple storylines to tell the many tales and happenings. So the fantasy, lore, insight, setting, all keep the gaming experience fresh.

Combat

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.

Replayability

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.

Heroes

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.

 

Personalities

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.

Monsters

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.

Stay tuned for more news.

Dead Man’s Trail zombie survival needs votes on Greenlight

dead man's trail zombie survival needs votes on greenlight in linux gaming news

By now the whole #zombiesurvival genre is overdone. Well that’s not quite the case in this bit of gaming news. Hence Dead Man’s Trail is a zombie survival #game coming to Linux, Mac and Windows PC via #Greenlight. Yet this is more of the classic travel survival game with some new twists. Since the game recreates the drama of modern zombie fiction. Hence making team members core to the player’s travel progress. Due to randomly generated cross-country journeys.

Here’s the deal:

While each character has their own job to help the party along the way. This includes a firearm expert, melee expert, paramedic, mechanic, and more. You get the idea.
However, all of these characters must be kept happy and healthy. So search through the randomly placed obstacles while gaming. Sort of like the emotional rollercoaster of Darkest Dungeon or even Rimworld. All while looting supplies in the procedurally-generated 3D environments. Therefore in each journey the player takes in Dead Man’s Trail, creates a highly replayable undead drama.

Dead Man’s Trail Features

  • Choose your vehicle: the nimble 4-Wheel Rocket, the balanced Grave Digger school bus. Or the powerful Ark tractor-trailer.
  • Keep your team of travelers healthy and happy. Each has their own job that will help the party along their journey. Firearm expert, melee expert, paramedic, and mechanic. Lose one and you’ll be limping down the road!
  • Loot randomly generated 3D cities for supplies and weapons. Get in and out quickly or you will face the horde (and maybe join them.)
  • A vast arsenal of weapons including revolvers, tactical shotguns, field hockey sticks. Oh and katanas, which will enable your players to survive and onslaught of Zombies!
  • Dark comedy story and diverse cast of characters.
  • Keep your senses about you and your ear to the ground. So the ambient sound changes when you’re being hunted.

Dead Man’s Trail – Beta Demonstration:

So, inspired to vote on Greenlight?
This is the sort of zombie survival that would adds nicely to the list of Linux games. Hence the reason for the news, well that and the fact that the gameplay style has some solid potential. With a release coming this June for Linux, Mac and Windows PC. While being developed in Unity 3D, of course.

Stay tuned for more details.
