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.

Played Frayed Knights today for the first time. It was part of some bundle I bought some days/weeks ago (can't even remember where and when exactly). But I really LOVE the humor and dialogues so far. 10/10 points, especially for the "good ol' days"-RPG feeling. Great one!

I bought Frayed Knights today despite having a backlog of games longer than my longest left foot, because your enthusiasm for your project and your obvious pride in your work was contagious enough to push me over the edge into buying. I'm looking forward to putting some time into enjoying your game, and I hope you never lose that passion!

Thanks, SD! I have the same kind of backlog, so I know EXACTLY what you are talking about. It can be tough when you see how many games you haven't only not played much of, but haven't even installed yet (dang bundles!), and try to justify *ONE MORE GAME*.

I appreciate it, and hope that you enjoy it!

The 50% sale continues today - plus a give-away of another game. Answer trivia (which you can actually find out just by playing the demo) to win a chance at another free game:

Anyway, hope ya'll are having fun.

Still waiting for a mythical -75% sale. Between 5$ and 7.50$ is my price point for most games, what can I say, Steam has spoiled me.

Disappointed to see, that you didn't mention anywhere that Frayed Knights is up for voting on Steam Greenlight. More votes wouldn't hurt it

Yeah, I suppose I was being overly generous to Desura.com by not linking to a competitor. :) I keep hearing that Greenlight is going away, but it may be a long time before it does.

I really like how movement through the dungeons seems fluid. Not like the typical matrix motion where you move square by square and are forced to look in 1 of 4 directions.

My main issue (and this was HUGE for me) was the interface of the game. The interface really...really bugged me. It felt like I was playing a browser game with lots of pop-ups getting in the way of my game. The battles did not feel natural and I spent more time navigating the what seemed like paragraphs of information on my screen to cast a spell.

The game looks very well made, and it flowed very nicely. I just couldn't get past the interface, but I suppose this is by design and would appeal to people seriously looking for an old-school game made with experience and ideas that did not exist during the old-school days.
