Kickstarter allows for some interesting fusions of projects. For video games, this can mean a blending of genres that people didn’t really think could work before as a game. Enter Throne of Lies, a 3D online multiplayer game that’s meant to play like an old-school tabletop game from long ago.
What makes this game unique is that your key “skills” for Throne of Lies are simply your wit, and your ability to deduce what to do next. Players will try to find allies, as well as kill their enemies and find out snakes as they try to ascend to the throne, or protect it from those who would do it harm.
There are factions and classes galore, as you must figure out what’s going on in the world around you. And every choice you make has an impact. What will you do to those who mock you? Defy you? Betray you? Your choices will affect not just the game, but how other people see you.
Another interesting part of this game is the Day/Night system. This allows for different segments of gameplay depending on what time of day it is. So use your time wisely, and know when to strike back. Also, there won’t be any paid armor or skins or event rewards. Everything you can get in-game, you can get from playing the game!
Like in all tales of deception, how you get rid of your foes is what counts. Be creative! Trick them into making a bad move, see if they’ll fall into a trap you’ve set for them. Make them cross the line, so that you can kill them up close and personal. It’s all there for you to do.
Throne of Lies is currently in the final 10 days of its Kickstarter, and needs only $6000 dollars to ensure the game is made. If a game of wits is your kind of party, then check out the game, and see if you have what it takes to be king!
