Indie developer, Kisareth Studios, is getting ready to launch a revamp of their game, Chronicles of a Dark Lord: Episode 1 Tides of Fate. On August 31st, 2012, this new updated version of the game will be available for Windows platforms. Kisareth Studios assures that Chronicles of a Dark Lord: Episode 1 Tides of Fate, will have a ton of new changes. Included is a complete overhaul of the game’s coding, the creation of brand new artwork for the game, fixes for several bugs, and the creation of a new theme song, titled “Day to Fall”, by singer-songwriter Marielle Thomas (part of the Pittsburgh-based Alt. Rock band, Runway).
Chronicles of a Dark Lord: Episode 1 Tides of Fate is a traditionally styled, turn based RPG, with 8-bit inspired graphics. This game has a unique graphical style (as well as a good story), bringing a dark edge (in the style of Castlevania) to the world of 2D, tile-based RPGs. The revamping of the first game in the Chronicles of a Dark Lord series looks to be what hopefully is a move towards the recreation of all three parts of the series.
If you like old school RPGs with a bit of a twisted edge, then make sure you check out this game when its released. Chronicles of a Dark Lord: Episode 1 Tides of Fate will be available on August 31st from Gamersgate, Gamefly, Indievania, Indiecity, and Direct2Play, as well as being available for download from their website (where you can also download a free demo of the game). A price has not yet been announced.
