Your lands have wilted, surviving subjects have abandoned their houses, and monsters created by fragments of diseased souls have taken their places, swallowing up all living beings. It is time to awake and unite the fractured lands, vanquish the darkness, and lead your people to prosperity like old times. Are you ready to step into the dark lands and become a worthy king that the kingdom has been waiting for centuries?

Gameplay Features:
  • Restore the Kingdom: Unlock new abilities by collecting resources, building houses, and slaying enemies to bring the smallfolk back home. The true power of the king lies in his domains and members – the more you restore, the mightier you grow.

  • Banish the Shadows: Destroy the plague creatures to save your subjects and clear the lands of rotting monsters to bring life back to the wastelands. Sharpen your combat skills and acquire more powerful equipment to overcome formidable adversaries.

  • Explore a World in Ruin: Traverse woods, deserts, volcanoes, and other biomes in the handcrafted interconnected world. Solve cunning puzzles, uncover hidden paths, and navigate treacherous terrain. The path is filled with challenges and wonders, a journey worthy of a true king.

Kingsgrave is set to release on PC in Spring 2024. For more information, visit the Kingsgrave page on Steam, and follow Twitter & Discord for updates.
