Description

Blades of the Righteous is a mix between tactical RPG and strategy game. You play as a commander that leads an army against dark forces all over the land. Micro-manage your units, choose what skills they learn and participate in random map events to progress further!

History

Blades of the Righteous was one of the first Vladimir's projects. It actually has three iterations and a long background of 'not giving up': the first version of the game for Steam Greenlight has been completed in October 2014. After Greenlight has been passed in May 2015, it has quickly became clear that the game is not really good. And since the Steam has allowed the publication to the store - there has been no other choice but to rework the game entirely - it took about a year, the second version of the game has been done in March 2016. After two months and some OK reviews it became clear that the game is not good enough. That did not stop its creator: the full engine rework has been completed at the beginning of June 2016, and fully revamped version of the game(1.3) has been published in June 2016, offering improved balance, faster battles and OpenGL shaders with more polished battle effects.
