It seems like new RPG and strategy games are released every day, with
little or no interest taken by editors or gamers. So why then did an indie title from a little known game developer attracted so much media attention and got rave reviews from fantasy lovers? Here is the answer. Discord Times is a remarkably well-balanced mix of RPG, strategy and adventure with a straightforward story line.
It may sound like an oxymoron, but this game with heavy fantasy influence is remarkable believable. The kingdom is exhausted by the long train of persistent wars with the neighbors; the resources and power of the royal authority are considerably weakened. The royal vassals, who were supposed to be the pillars of the monarchy, raid their neighbors
and attack the monarch himself. In this turning point in the kingdom’s history. One of the tree heroes – Knight, Ranger or Archmage – has to gather an army, defend the King’s throne and fight with the betrayers of his fatherland and with the Devil’s incarnates.
Like most strategic games, Discord Times has buildings and structures (50 different models) that produce troops, enhance trade, levy taxes and research new spells. Many of them can be captured from the enemies. Powerful Artificial Intelligence engine guarantees that battle scenarios are never to take the same path. While, strategy and planning is an
important part of the game, most of the game time is spent battling opponents.
Game’s roleplaying component is much richer and entertaining than that of an average RPG game. Discord Times has 100+ artifacts with magic properties and 80+ game characters, whose actions are governed by a non-linear development algorithm. Another popular addition to the genre is so called "global magic" with 25+ different spells that can weaken or strengthen an entire army – a very powerful tactical weapon indeed. All this makes RPG fans go wild over Discord Times.
To submerge players into the atmosphere of the Middle Ages, the gamecomes with an original soundtrack that features melodic medieval tunesand ballads. All this, combined with simple interface and low learning curve, makes Discord Time a hidden jewel that is waiting to be discovered by demanding gamers.
