No Truce with the Furies is an isometric RPG game released on PC. The title is focused mostly on its narrative aspect. It is the first game developed by Estonian studio Fortress Occident.

Plot

The game takes place in an old seaside city Revachol located in fictional world that combines the traits of modern times with fantasy features and retro-futuristic technologies. The player assumes the role of a miserable law enforcer who is a bad policeman and even worse human being. He receives an opportunity to work on a case that can either take drag him all the way to the bottom or give him a shot at redemption.

Mechanics

In No Truce with the Furies for PC the player performs actions that are typical for classic role-playing games – he explores, speaks to various characters, completes quests and fights. However, all these activities were realized in an unusual way. The game developers intended to make the player feel as if he was a protagonist of a good novel. While traveling through the world, the protagonist is surrounded by a circle of symbols that present information obtained from various senses. Their location can for example indicate a source of a sound to the player, a smell, or an inspiration. After clicking an icon the player is given a more detailed description. The knowledge obtained from these descriptions has key role in solving challenges and discovering the secrets of the storyline. Protagonist’s thoughts were treated in a similar manner and checking them can open alternative options further in the game.

No Truce with the Furies also contains an advanced dialogue system similar to a logic game. The player can use it to participate in a verbal disagreement, manipulate other people, and deduce things that weren’t conspicuously stated in the conversation. All of it is based on decisions made by the player and on character statistics.

The battles were created in a form similar to the dialogues. The player must select text descriptions of actions and try to create something similar to a fight scene from a good novel. At the same time, the system in the background works like in traditional role-playing games and it checks player’s character skills.

Technical aspects

No Truce with the Furies for PC uses isometric perspective and offers attractive graphics. Nice vistas are powered by a technology which the authors named paintshading. It makes the pre-rendered backgrounds and three-dimensional characters look like an animated oil painting.
