Iratus: Lord of the Dead is a fantasy RPG with roguelike elements set in a fantasy world. The game shows far-reaching inspiration with the popular Darkest Dungeon from Red Hook Studios. Independent Russian studio Unfrozen is responsible for creating Iratus: Lord of the Dead.

Story

The player takes on the role of the title Iratus - a powerful necromancer once defeated and "killed" by great heroes. Having awakened again to life and freed himself from eternal prison, the sorcerer decides to take revenge and remind the world of what true evil is.

Mechanics

In the game from Unfrozen Studios our task is to conquer the world with the help of undead armies (e.g. skeletons, zombies, banshees or vampires). Like in Darkest Dungeon, we will lead our troops (up to four units) into the battle within the expanded turn-based combat system. The clashes are characterized by a high level of difficulty. During the breaks between them, we develop our base and gain access to subsequent types of units and abilities. Due to the characteristic profession of the main character, we have, among other things, the ability to create new soldiers from ... pieces of fallen enemies.

Iratus can be developed through three skill paths - alchemy, tactics and magical skills. Each of them offers a different kind of profits (our necromancer can participate in combat). What is important, our tactical decisions are of great importance and consequences, because - typically for the roguelike species - the death of a character is irreversible.

Game modes

Iratus: Lord of the Dead features single-player mode only.

Technical aspects

Iratus: Lord of the Dead features attractive two-dimensional visuals, based mainly on hand-drawn maps and figures. Although from the point of view of technological advancement the game is unlikely to impress the enthusiasts of spectacular graphics, the game's interesting and very atmospheric artistic style will find some fans.
