NeocoreGames go turn-based with King Arthur: Knight's Tale, now on Kickstarter

You may recognise the name NeocoreGames. Some odd 11 years ago (has it really been that long), they released a very cool RPG/Total War-esque strategy game hybrid titled King Arthur: The Role-Playing Wargame. Then they followed it up with two more (less cool, but still competent) strategy games, before finally giving up and settling for Diablo clones like Van Helsing and WH40k: Inquisitor (which was definitely not a cool move at all).

But now they are coming back with something that looks promising again. King Arthur: Knight's Tale is going to be a turn-based, tactical, party-based RPG with what looks like a degree of kingdom management and "rogue-lite" elements, which is probably supposed to mean a random-generated world.

And of course, it's on Kickstarter, because freedom is not free. To quote its brief description from the page:

You are Sir Mordred, the nemesis of King Arthur, the former black knight of the grim tales. You killed King Arthur, but with his dying breath, he struck you down. You both died – and yet, you both live.

The Lady of the Lake, the ruler of the mystical island of Avalon brought you back to end a true nightmare. She wants you to go on a knightly quest. She wants you to finish what you have begun. Kill King Arthur – or whatever he has become after she took his dying vessel to Avalon.

King Arthur: Knight’s Tale is a Role-playing Tactical Game - a unique hybrid between turn-based tactical games (like X-Com) and traditional, character-centric RPGs.

Knight's Tale is a modern retelling of a classic Arthurian mythology story filtered through the dark fantasy tropes, a twist on the traditional tales of chivalry.

The story campaign puts a huge emphasis on moral choices, which have significant consequences in a rogue-lite structure, adding extra tension to the tactical and management decisions.​

You can read more about the game on the Kickstarter page, and pledge, if you find it worthy. The goal is 115k quid, date of delivery Q1 2021, and an early bird voucher of £20 nets you a digital copy of the game.
