Black Legend is a turn-based dark fantasy RPG inspired by Benelux folklore. This is another work of the Belgian Warcave studio, which has previously developed a real time strategy Warparty.

Plot

Black Legend takes place in a fictional city inspired by Dutch architecture from the 17th century. Alchemist Mephisto took over the power and brought a fog that drove the inhabitants crazy. A group of mercenaries, led by the player, is confronting him, but in a clash with the cultists of an insane tyrant, the heroes can count on the help of a modest resistance movement.

Mechanics

Black Legend is almost a classic turn-based RPG, albeit giving up the isometric view in favour of the third person perspective (TPP). So we gather a team of mercenaries from among 15 classes of characters to unlock, we explore the open world, talk to NPCs and perform tasks, and from time to time we get into turn-based clashes with enemies. The battles requires the use of a system of alchemy, based on ancient humoral theory. Each use of the ability disturbs the balance between the four fluids, allowing us to use four power classes (called here instabilities): rubedo, albedo, nigredo and citrinitas. It is also impossible without a lot of tactics, firearms and sharp steel, which, apart from the cultists, will be tasted by creatures known from Belgian and Dutch folklore.

Game modes

Black Legend offers nothing more than a feature campaign in which we face the cultists of Mephisto. Players can only choose whether they want to get a demanding RPG or a simpler, easier gameplay that doesn't interfere with learning the game history.

Technical aspects

In accordance with the dark fantasy style, the three-dimensional graphics of Black Legend have been maintained in a gloomy, quite realistic style, emphasized by the omnipresent fog and audio setting.
