Frayed Knights: The Skull of S’makh-Daon Now Available on Desura

Posted by Rampant Coyote on October 17, 2011

Frayed Knights: The Skull of S’makh-Daon, that quirky hardcore comedy indie RPG (how’s that for a pile of adjectives?) is now available on Desura:

Frayed Knights: The Skull of S’makh-Daon at Desura

I feel like I’m in good company, as Gaslamp Games’ Dungeons of Dredmor was just released there a few days ago.  Let’s hear it for humorous hardcore RPGs / Roguelikes! Granted, the games (and their approach to comedy) are of pretty different style, but I’ve noticed that a lot of people who enjoy the one also enjoy the other.

Will Frayed Knights become available through other distributors? I don’t know. I’m still waiting to hear back from them. But with its indie emphasis (though you can also buy some older mainstream titles like the older Fallout games), I’m pretty fond of Desura. If you absolutely need the amenities offered by an online distributor, and love indie games, they seem to be an outstanding way to go.

    Holy cow… and Average rating of 9.3…

    I’m impressed. Well done Jay.

    Well, not too many reviews up there yet. Feel free to do your part to move the average closer to 9.5 if you want. 🙂

    C’mon, let’s see it on Gamersgate too 😀

    Bought the game (again) on Desura, despite having a really bad experience with the program when I tried it out briefly some months ago. Back then the program both refused to start properly and created some truly annoying start-up problems in Windows. Seems to work much better now, though, and there are indeed a lot of nice little games on there…

    I keep saying, “I have too many distributor clients, I don’t need anymore!” But then I can’t help but browse and watch videos for games like Scoregasm. If nothing else, as an indie game discovery tool it’s pretty handy!

  • MJG said,

    Just out of curiosity, is there (or, will there be) a way to activate a copy of the game bought through this site on Desura?

  • Rampant Coyote said,

    @MJG – I don’t see why not. I’ll get right on that and see if we can work that out.

  • Demiath said,

    @MJG That’s a good idea. For example, I noticed that Project Zomboid has an entire page (in the client) reserved for Desura activation of copies purchased elsewhere.
