    Why is Guinevere such a bitch-faced fatass? Wasn't she supposed to be beautiful?

    Morgana le Fay is treacherous; Queen Guinevere is haunted by her mistakes; Sir Lancelot is French; Sir Gawaine is usually drunk...
    Ok I approve the humour, but the art looks like Tyranny and the Banner Saga had a red-headed bastard child that fell in a latrine.

    Camelot, turn-base, and some kind of C&C? I'm in.

    Artstyle looks poor generally, but eh since when is that the biggest deal

    I enjoyed Heaven's Vault, so this might end up being decent.

    Heaven's Vault was really unique so anything that team makes is worth a look. Fuck Arthurian legend though, most boring shit ever.

    Every time I read the title as "Penisdragon".

    Every time I am disappointed.

    Is this a PC exclusive game made by ex mobile people or phone and pc multiplatform? The latter are obviously not worth a glance, but the former can be ok.

    Tried this. It is very pretentious.

    Did not appreciate having to literally choose between a whore and a traitor at the character select screen.

    Before I deleted it I concluded the combat was obtuse, not deep.

    Game devs absolute spitting out Roguelikes because they can have you play the same level 100x and charge you full price for a single level and some metagaming +5% mumbo jumbo

    The whore because they were equally off-putting, but she had a spear and I think spears should be more prominent in games.

    Was expecting the ability to attack diagonally or with reach.

    No such luck.
