New release: Fight the Dragon

Fight the Dragon
Word reaches me that there’s a new 3D isometric action RPG in town by the name of Fight the Dragon. Developed by Australian indie devs 3 Sprockets, Fight the Dragon has no single overarching narrative premise to speak of–or at least, none the developers care to provide. Rather, the game relies heavily on community-created content.

The developers write:

Fight The Dragon ships with a highly flexible in-game Adventure Construction Kit (ACK) that allows players to design, play and share their adventures with other players on all platforms around the world.

The ACK (as is the gameplay) is designed to be as intuitive to use via a gamepad as it is via mouse and keyboard. Creators are able to sculpt and paint environments, place props, enemies, NPCs, Traps, checkpoints and other key game elements including hooking up basic logic systems for switches/gates and traps.

The Fight The Dragon community have already published over 1900 fantastic adventures, which means we have hundreds of hours of gameplay already created.

Here is a gameplay trailer:

The ease of making adventure modules and the enormous amount of community-created content on offer seem to be the main selling points of Fight the Dragon, but there is also multiplayer support to round out the package–to wit:

  • Local Drop-In Split-Screen Co-Op
  • Up to 4 player online Co-Op (cross platform)
  • LAN Server for local 4 player Co-Op
  • Full gamepad & Steam Big Picture support

Fight the Dragon is now available on the Humble Store and on Steam for $14.99 (currently with an additional release discount on the latter platform). Windows, Mac and Linux.
