Press Knights & Legends: Dawn of a New Age | Ultimate Ed. Coming Nov. 6th 2020 DTRPG

It's been a great two years since I released classic Knights & Legends on DTRPG. From that point on, the game was able to expand to unimaginable extents. In September of 2019 I self-published yet another game. This time called the New Horizon: All-In-One Core Book, it expanded the lore of the realm and presented a multi-tier set of original rules that made the game both simple and complex on the go.

New Horizon was such a remarkable experience that it was included in the Australia Relief Fund Bundle hosted by OBS, with many other games in it. Today, over 1,145 TRPG players got their hands on both classic K&L and New Horizon Core Books, not including additional paid supplements released for both games.

However, while this was considered a successful release for an Indie TRPG, in my mind as the creator, something was still amiss. The original dream of creating a 3D video game. A game that could not only infinitely expand Ezorian lore, but also visually deliver to the player what's on my mind as the original creator of this legacy.

Today I bring some great news to all K&L fans and supporters out there! Knights & Legends Dawn of a New Age (Ultimate Edition) will be available Friday, November 6th 2020 as a special early release, exclusively at DTRPG until July 30th 2021. Then the game will be available both on Itch and Steam for billions of other video game players out there to get a chance to experience the realm of Ezora on their own, and learn the great potential tabletop role-playing games have in them. This bridges both literature and virtual in one single reality. Ladies & Gents, Knights & Legends: Dawn of a New Age is the world's first hybrid RPG.

Since mid March I’ve been working non stop in the development of the game. Today I’m glad to inform you, Beta development has officially ended. The game has maxed out on all possible aspects, from graphics to mechanics. Based on its budget, it is a small miracle so many wonderful things have been added to this game.

EARLY ACCESS GAMEPLAY FOOTAGE IN 1080P

It's with great joy I share this video with you today. Knights & Legends: Dawn of a New Age's final build has been compiled and tested on both Windows and Mac computers. For an Indie release, K&L leaves little to wish for. It possesses a compelling and elaborated story, which masterfully delivers all of my visions as this game's creator. Give the game a chance, and you won't regret it.

FEW THINGS TO LOOK FORWARD TO
Just so you have an idea of the amount of detail being put into the game, I'll be highlighting some of the features players will experience while playing the final build. (Vr. 1.0)

GAME'S CAST
Common enemies and NPCs appear more than once. unique enemies and bosses will only appear once.
  • Hero (Protagonist)
  • Bandits (Common Enemy) (4 Variations)
  • Royal Guards (Common NPC)
  • Assassin (Unique Enemy)
  • Sorcerer (Unique Enemy)
  • Shinobi (Boss Enemy)
  • Merchants (Common NPC)
  • Average Citizens (Common NPC)
  • Direwolves (Common Enemy)
  • Skeleton (Common Enemy) (5 Variations)
  • Slug (Common Enemy) (3 Variations)
  • Knights Champion (Boss Enemy)
  • Knights (Common Enemy)
  • Dragon (Boss Enemy) (2 Variations)
  • Mimic (Common Enemy)
  • Lady-o-Eden (Unique Enemy)
  • Geist (Common Enemy)
  • Eidolon (Antagonist)
Some support characters weren't mentioned in order to keep this article spoiler free. As previously mentioned, the game will take anywhere between 6 to 8 hours from beginning to end. Along with the 18 types of model classes listed above, there's a total of 23 unique characters, not including particular variations.

FEATURED LOCALES
Knights & Legend's world is considerably large, unfortunately the game didn't reach the desired amount needed during its crowdfunding campaign. Development relied largely on existing current revenue from the original TRPG book sales. With that said, this adventure main focus lies in the Human race and the nation of Vancroft. You'll be catching a glimpse of other relevant parts of the world as some cutscenes present themselves as the story progresses, including the so called Outer World. The latter, being a spiritual realm where all the dead go before the final judgement is delivered by the mysterious Eidolon.

THE EXPERIENCE (No Clichés)
The beauty behind K&L: DNA lies in its story. The game itself is a hybrid of both JRPGs and Western RPGs, but it's in no way your traditional role-playing game. You're presented a medieval setting with no cliché stereotypes associated with it. For example, facing a dragon is completely optional. And the dragons themselves have nothing to do with this particular story. Opposed to the same old Knight vs. Dragon fantasy medieval setting.
The game's story is largely centered around the protagonist, his past actions, and the current turbulent times surrounding the birth of the Xhinian faith. You work closely with imperial scouts in order to uncover the mysterious death of two of your comrades.
Some of the hero's past actions come back to haunt him, and will change the course of the journey, leading you towards a completely unforeseen ending. The ideal way to fully understand this adventure would be playing the game through twice. Players are also advised to read through the included Collector's Booklet, as it shares vital story enhancing information with no spoilers.

PREQUEL ANIMATION
It's been long my desire to deliver K&L in three different mediums. Literature, video game, and now after a long search, a talented artist have been hired and is currently in the process of creating a short animation which will serve as a direct prequel to Knights & Legends: Dawn of a New Age. More on that coming soon!
Thank you for reading. :)

Felix, J.

The night Knights & Legends: Dawn of a New Age, almost broke the internet aha. #6 of 55,898 is quite an achievement, thank you everyone! More on the official anime coming soon.


 


Hey guys, I wanted to thank everyone for their support. It's been an amazing 5 years since I've been in business. I owe a lot to the TRPG community so that's why I'm putting extra, extra attention to the final touches of K&L: DNA. I've created the sales page for the ultimate edition and it will be going live once the countdown reaches 0. That will be midnight EST on Nov 6th.

Here's some progress report before showcasing the animation in progress, later this week.

I started developing the game January 2020
Finished it at September 1st (roughly 9 months of development)
Currently waiting on the artist to finish the animation work
In October I will be doing the final edits to the K&L animation
And then November 6th, I finally get to click the launch button.

Thank you for your patience and if you want to check out pricing, screenshots, and gameplay you can head to the new sales page at the game's official website. Knights & Legends: Dawn of a New Age (Ultimate Edition) – FANTASY GAMES BY FELIX, J.
 

Dear reader, thank you for stopping by! Here’s is the latest in the development of Knights & Legends: Dawn of a New Age. As a brief reminder, Early Access starts November 6th, 2020!


The Ultimate Edition, comes with a couple of goods that will largely reward you for spending a little extra. Included below, is a preview of the exclusive animation only available in the ultimate edition. Early Access, will give you the opportunity to attain not only the original animation, but also the whole Tabletop RPG collection at no additional cost. While the animation and Tabletop RPGs aren’t fundamental to understanding the story of the game, you’ll benefit greatly from unique lore that can only be accessed through these extra materials, including unique illustrations and more.


If you’re an avid tabletop rpg player, there’s possibly hundreds of hours to be had by playing your way through the books with a set of polyhedral dice. It doesn’t matter if you’re planning to play solo or in groups, the experience will be nothing shorter than pleasant. That’s doubly true, if you’re a fan of all medieval and mythological things.

OFFICIAL ANIMATION PREVIEW IN 1080P



This preview highlights two important moments in the story of the realm. The first, a prequel that further enhances the story of Dawn of a New Age. The second, current events you’ll face during gameplay. The universe is stitched together in such a way, that it doesn’t really matter whether you start by reading the books, or playing the game, etc…


Check out some of the latest screenshots of version 1.0, the current version you’ll receive when you download the game. This set, mostly focus around the kingdom of Vancroft, and its outskirts.

Modders Welcome

I’d like to announce that I’ll be more than willing to work with modders in the community to create their own unique mods for the game. In some cases, you could even be authorized to profit from your mods towards the game. Submit your request with modding history through contact form at the game’s official website, and we’ll go from there. I’m looking forward to see what talented mods in the community come up with. There’s unlimited possibilities!

Cover Art Reveal in my Latest Blog Post! (IndieDB)

There was no right time to start game development. To be honest, I didn't even know I'd be creating a video game. It was all so spontaneous and natural that I just kept on going without giving it a second thought. Developing Knights & Legends: Dawn of a New Age was great, there was no pressure, and I was fully in control of what I was doing. It was kind of a dream project, to be frank.

Interestingly enough, interacting with the gaming community as close as I do today, exposed a side that's often neglected and not talked about. There's stress, there's insecurities, people are legitimate afraid of being ridiculed by others. There's a strong desire to get approval before moving on with their ideas. Less experienced devs are throwing good ideas out in the open instead of protecting them and developing their games in utmost secrecy in this highly competitive multi-billion industry.

All I know is, if I'd wait for approval from others, I'd have developed 0 games as of today. I gave it all I had while creating my game, and I know it won't appeal to everyone. That goes for any product that's in the market ever since the dawn of humanity, and it's okay. Today, I can confidently share with you the cover of my latest product. And the best part, Early Access starts Nov. 6th, 2020!


 


KNIGHTS & LEGENDS: DAWN OF A NEW AGE IS GOING GOLD!


You heard that right! K&L: DNA is finally going gold, after nearly 11 months in the making the game is finally complete and ready for distribution. The final build demo is in the works and should be ready anytime near the game’s Early Access release, on November 6th.

Version 1.1 is the the current build the game will be launching in. With it, are many new improvements to graphics, lighting, and performance. Some fans in social media have hinted that Vaux Hills had a bit too much bloom. I heard their feedback and took things down a notch.

The new improvements made to the region, further enhance the suspenseful atmosphere of the game, keeping you on your toes and wandering what comes next. Check out the latest version 1.1 gameplay screenshots!



Opposed to version 1.0, now you’ll travel the hills in pitch dark conditions under the moonlight.



The new atmosphere keeps you ready and always on guard.



The new 1.1 enhancements tune down antialias and bloom a bit for better frame rate and performance.



Version 1.1 adds sharper contrast giving even more life to smaller details in the game.



Displaying both the protagonist and antagonist of the game. What sorts of mysteries are there to uncover!?


All the content you see above are taken straight from the game. In Knights & Legends, you’ll experience beautiful scenery, inspired by prestigious untouched landscapes in the world. This story driven adventure, draws inspiration from Shakespearean literature and dark mythology to deliver an unrepresented tale in the history of indie games. Knights & Legends: Dawn of a New Age, is an Indie game with the soul and ambition of its AAA counterparts.

28 days left for Early Access! On the next article, I’ll be highlighting the bonus content that comes with the ultimate edition, where to buy it, minimum machine specs, and much more!

DAY-1 CONTENT PREVIEW | BLOOD OATH MOD & PATCH 1.1a



Dear reader, thank you for stopping by! There’s some great news, but also good and bad news in this article. As a responsible developer it’s my duty to keep you in the loop. Let’s get to it!

THE XHINIAN BLOOD OATH


Blood Oath Mod: The mod is the first of its kind, it brings a darker tone to the game, and will be available for free! If you own Knights & Legends: Dawn of a New Age, all you have to do is go to the game’s official website and click on Mods & Patches. Please note, the page will only go live when Early Access is made available.

Included with the mod are the following changes
  • New Dark Armor
  • Harder Enemies
  • Unique New Foes
  • Optional Boss Fights
  • Save Compatibility
  • New Music
  • Other Small Changes




The Dark Templar Armor, gives Maximilian much needed defense properties to face new foes.

When I designed the Blood Oath mod, the idea behind it was for it to serve as a NewGame+ to the original vanilla game. With that said, please bear in mind, you’ll get the most out of this mod by finishing the game first. However, I understand that some of us just can’t wait! Save compatibility makes it all too easy to install and run the mod, so you can pick up right where you left off.



Taking a stroll through the vancroftian streets with dark armor, like a true knight!

DAY-1 PATCH 1.1a

The Day-1 patch brings minor changes to the game, it’s size is roughly ~24MB and adds a new official animation, along with a few extras. All K&L animations are designed by the talented American artist, Cub Olson. As an independent developer, I’ve proudly supported other independent artists since 2016.



The official patch also delivers low tier mod support. By low tier, I mean that I won’t directly be able to provide modders with the software needed to create mods for the game. However, as mentioned before, for anyone serious about creating a really unique mod, other options are available, including profit possibilities. You can reach me through the the game’s official website contact page.

DELAYS & ONGOING NEGOTIATIONS

In the previous article, I had mentioned I was open for publishers to reach out with their inquiries and offers. Today, I can gladly confirm talks are in progress but I must emphasize there’s no guarantee of a deal, mostly because my plans for the IP are very demanding and a bit difficult to make a contract simple. If the game is published by a third party, I’d have the confidence it would reach a much broader audience worldwide in a much faster pace than I could possibly do. Although, when it comes to other specific details, such as rights and licensing, there are very specific requirements coming from my end that surely make reaching a deal a bit more complicated.

November 15th will be the deadline for publishing inquiries. By then, it will roughly be a month since I’ve been open for publishers to reach out. The back and forth takes time, and that’s why I have to unfortunately postpone the Nov. 6th Early Access to Q1 2021. Also, considering I have to pass all docs trough a professional before signing anything, and until I/them finally get to publish the game, it’s hard to give a definitive new release date for Early Access at this moment. But please bear in mind, the July 2021 official release is still on schedule, and the current delays shouldn’t move past mid February 2021.

Thank you for reading! I’ll be publishing the next update some time in a month from now, if you’d like to be notified about future updates, please don’t forget to follow the game at IndieDB.
