The fab retro tactical RPG 'Fates of Ort' in now on GOG

By - | Views: 9,886

Fates of Ort, a retro RPG with a tactical approach to the combat and one where time only moves where you move is now available on GOG.

This is not turn-based in the traditional sense, it's more like everything is just paused. Perhaps a little closer to SUPERHOT than anything else, except it's an RPG not a shooter. It's so ridiculously fluid in action too, and honestly it's just great. A welcome entry into the RPG genre. With a unique magic system too, one that requires a little thought, as it can suck your own life away to use it.

Feature Highlight:

  • Learn and use 12 magic spells, and combine them with the three elements for different effects
  • Time stops when you stand still - take advantage of this to plan your attacks
  • Use your life energy to weave spells - be strategic in your fighting
  • Explore various biomes around the world of Ort and meet a diverse set of characters
  • Atmospheric soundtrack composed by Chris Gray
  • Pursue truly optional quest lines, and make difficult choices between which characters to save
  • Save the world, or rule it as a force of evil

I liked it so much, it became one of my favourites so far this year. Sadly though, like a lot of indie titles without savvy marketing it's mostly gone under the radar but you should definitely take a look if you enjoy a good retro-inspired RPG. It's a true gem.

Now you can pick it up on GOG.com as well as Steam.
