Default Frayed Knights - Pilot Released for FREE Download

May 1st, 2008, 04:29
I've just finished playing the Frayed Knights Pilot and while I enjoyed it, despite a few minor complaints (mainly the controls ) I was left wondering if it's really an RPG, or simply an Adventure game with some rpg elements, like random combat!!

I have never cared for playing with pre-generated characters and that's what you're stuck with, for specific game design purposes. Where's the ROLE playing? These aren't 'real' characters, but comedic ones. They remind me more of Monkey Island than a normal RPG. ( I love MI ) I worry that this aspect could deter many people from trying the game.

Don't misunderstand me; I think RC has the makings of a great game that will be a lot of fun to play, but serious rpg players will definitely criticise these design choices. I have no problem accepting an Adventure/RPG hybrid. Like many here I bought, played and enjoyed all the Quest for Glory games. Perhaps this will be the spiritual successor to those games; I certainly hope so.

Final verdict:- Get it, play it and decide for yourself if you think you would enjoy the final product. I know I will!! It's still on my Games to Buy list.

If God said it, then that settles it!!
