New release: 10 Fantasy Fights
Geoff Dunbar of Merry Prankster Games writes in to announce the release of 10 Fantasy Fights, a short (but free) fantasy tactics game featuring combat of the real-time-with-pause variety and a rules system reminiscent of D&D’s.
The premise is a bit flimsy, and by the author’s own admission, is there primarily to justify him stress-testing the game’s engine:
You will rapidly advance from a simple battle of a single inexperienced warrior against lowly minions, all the way to controlling a mighty band of legendary heroes against a near-invincible demon lord.
Yeah, that’s it. In short, it’s just a linear romp through (you guessed it) 10 fantasy fights in the Baldur’s Gate style. That said, it’s free, so there’s no good reason to avoid trying it if this sort of combat is your cup of tea. 10 Fantasy Fights is Windows-only; get it here. Additionally, Dunbar has said that he’s looking for feedback. Once you’ve given the game for a spin, weigh in with your thoughts right here.
