The Iron Oath is a tactical RPG with a turn-based combat system. This is the debut game of the independent team at Curious Panda Games founded by Chris Wingard, who had spent almost a decade with Electronic Arts.

Story

The game is set in a gloomy fantasy universe, which every few decades is haunted by an ancient dragon, carrying a mysterious plague that transforms people into thoughtless beasts. The campaign starts when there are signs that this tragedy will happen again. The players take command of a guild whose members undertake a variety of dangerous missions for payment.

Mechanics

The Iron Oath is a tactical RPG. During the game, the players explore a large world, divided into nine regions and containing more than fifty cities and villages. During their travels, they encounter numerous challenges and adventures, and their decisions influence the fate of the whole land, causing wars or changing the balance of power between nations. There were also randomly generated dungeons.

We spend most of our time fighting turn-based battles on maps covered with a hex grid. In order to win, it is necessary to select the right formation, use elements of the environment and save resources of the team.

Another key element of the game is guild management. Heroes fight for money, not just out of a sense of duty, which forces efficient management of funds. Moreover, each of them has its own personality and will not agree with all of our orders. Characters can die during adventures or even from old age, so we have to recruit new employees on a regular basis. In addition, our missions influence the reputation of our organization and thus the shape subsequent offers and the attitude of NPCs.

Technical aspects

The title offers attractive two-dimensional retro visuals ith visible pixels. The game is accompanied by catchy music composed by Alex Roe.
