By - | Views: 27,303

Become Reik, a clever member of the fox tribe in Of Blades & Tails from Felix Laukel and Pineapple Works that has now left Early Access.

Inspired by genre classics such as Tales of Maj'Eyal and Stoneshard, Of Blades & Tails brings on a fresh approach to the turn-based RPG genre by offering the player faster-paced "skill & gear"-oriented gameplay. Players can follow the main story or hunt for treasures in ancient ruins and mysterious dungeons. Character development and gaining powerful equipment plays a major role on the journey.

It has Native Linux support but there's currently no Steam Deck rating for it. The developer mentioned it works great but needs custom Steam Input configuration due to it lacking full controller support. Players on Steam have given it a Very Positive rating so looks like another quality indie release worth your time!

You can buy it on GOG and Steam.

A tactical RPG where you only control 1 character with a classless skill system? You have my attention. But, even if English is not a problem, I'll wait until Spanish localization is finished.
