Indie RPGs Reviews Frayed Knights

Posted by Rampant Coyote on December 21, 2011

Craig Stern at IndieRPGs.com has a fairly extensive review of Frayed Knights: The Skull of S’makh-Daon. You can check it out here:

Game Review – Frayed Knights: The Skull of S’makh-Daon

There are mixed opinions on the endurance / exhaustion mechanic, some people loving it, others – like Craig – not feeling quite so much love. While there are aspects of it that may be refined for the next game (my excitement is growing quite a bit on this front… some coding experiments and a “break” during my visit to Asia have been good for me), it’s here to stay. I’m quite pleased with it and how it gently encourages the ebb-and-flow of pushes into dungeons and retreats back to the surface. The only part that did NOT work so well was the load times it required, which are artifacts of my game engine and I’d really like to improve in the next game.

As a side point, Craig also took the opportunity to announce a release date for Telepath RPG: Servants of God. (Valentine’s Day 2012, if you were wonderin’ but didn’t want to click on the link).
