A 3D indie RPG with old-school flavor and a tongue firmly planted in its cheek. Frayed Knights: The Skull of S'makh-Daon features turn-based combat, over a hundred spells (mostly upgradable), over 80 skills (feats), dozens of monsters, and 30+ hours of gameplay. It also features new innovations like the Drama Star system to provide an incentive to play through setbacks rather than reloading, and a detailed trap-disarming / lockpicking mini-game. Now available for Windows XP and above.

The Dice-and-Paper Gaming Origins of Frayed Knights

The design of Frayed Knights was rooted in traditional, "old-school" CRPGs, of course. But a lot of the design decisions came from an effort to tap into old-school tabletop gaming - the kind of experience...

Frayed Knights - Taking Time to Smell the Roses

Sometimes I wonder if I'm just a cruel game designer. In spite of it's humor and goofiness, there's a hardcore western-style RPG underneath the hood of Frayed Knights: The Skull of S'makh-Daon, and it...

Not to bug you about keys, but is there any chance we will be getting a Steam key from the old Bundle in a Box bundle from Sept 2013?

Yep, the keys have already been delivered to Gnome, and he should have them up and added to people's account soon. Not sure if "soon" means today or not, but there should be plenty of time.

Will there be a way to get the keys uploaded to Desura, or perhaps direct from yourselves as well?
BiaB has closed shop and their servers [hosting all the purchases (incl. keys)] will be taken down on August 08th 2014. See Blog.bundle-in-a-box.com for the announcement.

Like I said - I talked to Gnome and sent him the keys. He didn't seem to think there'd be a problem.

Any chance of a Linux build?

Not unless somebody's willing to do the port for me. It's a custom Torque engine build, which was designed to be cross-platform compatible, but sadly the support on the engine had died off by the time I'd released, and there were some real problems trying to get it to build for Mac (and we didn't even try Linux). Future games will definitely be for Linux, though... I'm no longer considering Windows to be a "primary" platform. I don't trust 'em.

Define soon. We're going to have a playable build at Salt Lake Comic Con - it won't be the full game, but it'll be a custom demo area for people to be able to play and get the gist of the game with only 5 minutes or so to play.

Sorry I haven't been paying enough attention to the Desura page as I should (working on that!) We're releasing the game on Steam in a few days, and I've been in a barely controlled panic getting things done for that and for the sequel... and dealing with a book release. :)

Anyway, there will be a lot more information on the sequel starting to trickle out this fall.
