Earlier this month, 80 Days and Heaven’s Vault developer Inkle unveiled its latest project, Arthurian-legend-themed strategy game Pendragon, and now the developer is inviting its community to submit bite-sized “campfire stories” to appear in-game.
Pendragon, as Inkle revealed previously, unfolds in the year AD 673. Camelot is on the verge of destruction, the Round Table is in disarray, and, among this chaos, players are charged with leading a band of knights, heroes, and peasants across Britain in an effort to reach King Arthur.
In some ways, it’s a big departure form previous Inkle titles, offering an experience built around “deeply strategic” turn-based combat, as players battle the likes of bandits, knights, and deadly creatures across the “randomised game board”. More inline with Inkle’s hugely acclaimed past games, though, is Pendragon’s promise of story-rich adventure, full of “love, suspicion, revenge, sacrifice and murder”.
