Aterdux Entertainment Releases “Discord Times” 1.3.
Indie game developer present the well-balanced mix – RPG + strategy + adventure.
“Discord Times” is a well-balanced mix of RPG, strategy and adventure with a straightforward story line.
This game with heavy medieval fantasy influence is remarkable believable. The kingdom is exhausted by the long train of persistent wars with the neighbors; the resources and power of the royal authority are considerably weakened. The royal vassals, who were supposed to be the pillars of the monarchy, raid their neighbors and attack the monarch himself. In this turning point in the kingdom’s history. One of the tree heroes – Knight, Ranger or Archmage – has to gather an army, defend the King’s throne and fight with the betrayers of his fatherland and with the Devil’s incarnates.
Like most strategic games, “Discord Times” has buildings and structures (more than 50 different models) that produce troops, enhance trade, levy taxes and research new spells. Many of them can be captured from the enemies. Powerful Artificial Intelligence engine guarantees that battle scenarios are never to take the same path. While, strategy and planning is an important part of the game, most of the game time is spent battling opponents.
Game’s roleplaying component is much richer and entertaining than that of an average RPG game. “Discord Times” has 130+ artifacts with magic properties and 90+ game characters, whose actions are governed by a non-linear development algorithm. Another popular addition to the genre is so called “global magic” with 25+ different spells that can weaken or strengthen an entire army – a very powerful tactical weapon indeed.
To submerge players into the atmosphere of the Middle Ages, the game comes with an original soundtrack that features melodic medieval tunes and ballads. All this, combined with simple interface and low learning curve, makes “Discord Times” a hidden jewel that is waiting to be discovered by demanding gamers.
“Discord Times” is distributed electronically over the Internet; free demo version is available at http://www.discordtimes.com/ for evaluation.
The price of a single copy is 19.95 US Dollars.
