“My liege! My liege! Oh great tyrannical one, put down that tankard and dust off your Tome of Despotism, for thine kingdom oppressing skills are needed once more. We must act quickly, for a plague of happiness and free-will is spreading throughout the realm. I've sent for the executioner. We must crush this rebellion and behead all those responsible! Oh yes, and your Mother sent word. Can you do tea and crumpets at 4 o'clock?„
Folk Tale is an Early Access sandbox fantasy city builder strategy game in which you lead a ragtag band of peasants in growing a small settlement into a thriving market town, while the dastardly Slavemaster Urzal and his minions plot your downfall. Sound the rallying call and head out into the wilds with parties of heroes and fight back the tide of evil in a game of endless possibilities.
Rule with tyranny and oppression, or liberalism and justice. Play as a merciless expansionist hell-bent on destruction, or as a gold-hoarding mercantilist who'll sell their own grandmother. With random events and dynamic story, in Folk Tale you never know how the story will unfold.
Folk Tale for PC, Mac and Linux is developed by indie collaboration studio Games Foundry. Our small team spans 15 time zones and is yet to meet face to face, but talk every day to bring you a refreshing and exciting break from conventional gaming.
“This is so cool! I can't actually believe how big the map is, it's absolutely nuts, holy *#!@ it's enormous! For an early alpha, pretty impressive!„
“[Folk Tale] looks like a marvelously ambitious fantasy city-builder - featuring fully explorable building/dungeon interiors and an adventure-focused RPG component - with some admirably silly humor to boot.„
