Frayed Knights Reviews

Frayed Knights is freshly released and Voila! RPGWatch are offering not one, but two reviews of the game.
In conclusion. This is a game I’ve really wanted to like for a long time. However, I don’t, I love it! It was a breath of fresh air poured into a genre, which sadly has become almost stale in its approach. Sure, it’s not going to win any prizes for graphics; it’s an Indie game using the Torque engine, which while adequate isn’t in the same universe graphically as games like Skyrim, but unless graphics mean far more to you than gameplay, engaging characters, and sheer enjoyment, then you owe it to yourself to buy Frayed Knights. I’ve started about 8 new games in the past few months, but I’ve only managed to finish one. You can guess by the number of reviews I haven’t written, which one it was.And from the second one:
I loved this game. It's what I've been waiting for since Wizardry 8 or even the end of the Quest for Glory series. It's a turn-based "blob" RPG set in a quirky setting where adventuring is a lifestyle choice. Even if you don't like games that aren't serious in nature there is still a wonderful "blob" combat RPG here. On my second playthrough, I skipped past all of the dialogues because I knew them all and I still enjoyed the combat portion of the game immensely. I'm now on my third playthrough and still skipping past the dialogues and still enjoying the heck out it.
