Brain Seal announces the release of Dark Quest 2, modestly calling this "the
greatest turn-based RPG the world has ever seen," though it will be up to
players to decide if this is accurate or some sort of final fantasy. This
includes cooperative multiplayer, a level editor, a campaign, achievements,
trading cards, and a "multitude" of fan-created scenario maps. The Dark Quest 2 Website
has details and this
launch trailer. Here's a description:
Dark Quest 2 is a turn based
RPG inspired by legendary board game Hero Quest. The game features a party based
system where you control a group of heroes, an isometric hand-drawn art style,
dice based mechanics and much more.
Each map is designed to take you through an adventure that will test your
party's strength, courage and sanity as you go deeper and deeper into the castle
in search for the chambers of the evil sorcerer.
Single-Player Campaign: Play a story driven
campaign that takes you through a series of adventure on your epic quest to
defeat the evil sorcerer.
Map Editor: Create new adventures and
distribute them through steamworks
Multiplayer: Play together with your
friends and complete the campaign cooperatively!
Turn Based Mechanics: Every turn each of
your heroes in your party can take one single action. Play wise and
carefully or fall captive in the eternal prison of the sorcerer.
Skull of Fate: In the darkest dungeons of
the castle, when left with no hope your last and only way out will be to
roll the skull of fate and reveal your twisted fate.
Assemble a Party: Control a group of heroes
each with their own personality and strengths. Use the unique strengths of
each character and work together to defeat the minions of the evil sorcerer.
Enter a world of fantasy and adventure:
Explore twisted mazes, find hidden doors and fight bloodthirsty orcs!
Village: Stay with the old masters and
learn new powers, craft new weapons and mix potions that improve the
capabilities of your heroes.
Their website provides no link to the game. Their mention of steamworks leads me to the idea that the game is on steam, but I'm not going to go search for it on my own. The greatest rpg ever doesn't do you much good if your business funnel is broken.
