Chronicles of a Dark Lord Episode 2: War of the Abyss now available for sale!
Description
Release date: Released August 31st, 2012
Chronicles of a Dark Lord: Episode 1 Tides of Fate is the first in a series of old-school RPGs, following in the footsteps of Eastern console classics like Final Fantasy, Lufia, Phantasy Star and Dragon Quest, as well as more recent indie games like Cthulhu Saves the World and Breath of Death VII.

Enter a world of shadowy intrigue where stained pasts collide with the present in an explosive confrontation that will define one young man's dark destiny, as he attempts to thwart the machinations of a true evil beyond all imagining...

This is not an episodic title; you are getting a FULL GAME. The "Episode 1" simply refers to the fact that the game is the first in a planned series. It is a finished product. It was released August 31st, 2012. We want to get this game on Steam so we can reach a broader audience.
