Default The Three Musketeers - New Indie Revealed

October 17th, 2009, 00:03
Rock, Paper, Shotgun has noticed a new indie RPG called The Three Musketeers. The official site doesn't have much in the way of information on features but you play as d'Artganan and it promises to be faithful to Dumas' novel - which would seem to limit the role-playing opportunities. It also looks to be made with RPG Maker (but with custom graphics) but the video looks quite good with horse riding, fencing and muskets.
More information.

this is for DArtagnan then.

even with some elements that seem to be limiting rp-opportunities, who cares, he's playing the paladin of lost causes all the time (a wordy one, for that matter).

Hers's the PR Dhruin probably only read after he had posted the newsbit.

Indie Developer Releases Three Musketeers Role Playing Game

October 16th, 2009 - (Vancouver, Canada) Dingo Games, www.dingogames.com, has announced the release of their swashbuckling adventure The Three Musketeers: The Game for Windows and Mac. Available exclusively online, the game closely follows the plot of the original Three Musketeers novel. Players take control of the young gentleman d'Artagnan as he sets off for Paris in hopes of becoming a Musketeer.

Created by independent developer Dingo Games, the game features an old school top-down perspective with hand drawn 2d graphics. Players duel enemies, gather loot, and fire muskets as they make their way through the main story. The setting of 17th France, which is uncommon in games, creates a unique gaming experience. Minigames and sidequests are specific to the setting - in one sidequest players help the inventor of the flintlock musket.

The story focuses on d'Artagnan's adventures with the famous three Musketeers: Athos, Porthos, and Aramis. Cardinal Richelieu, the most powerful man in France, launches a plot to disgrace the queen and it's up to d'Artagnan and his three friends to save her honor. Later in the game, the beautiful but deadly Milady de Winter becomes the chief concern of the four comrades.

It took 165 years, but this classic tale has finally been faithfully adapted into a video game. There is a free demo available for Windows and Mac. For more information on The Three Musketeers: The Game go to www.dingogames.com/three-musketeers-game/

All for one and one for all!

There's a striking similarity to Faery Tale Adventure 2: Halls of the Dead.
