Fates of Ort is a retro fantasy RPG focused on strategic action, in a land where time is frozen when you stand still. Cast powerful spells - but beware, they will cost you your life.
The world of Ort is literally crumbling underneath your feet. The ground collapses to reveal cavernous pits. Monsters roam the forests killing indiscriminately. Corrupted mages, delirious with power, weave spells of destruction. Magic has returned to Ort, but it is not the pure and divine magic of the Three Sisters. This is Consumption: Available to those who want everything but are blind to the cost it is a seemingly limitless source of power, drawing on the fabric of the world itself... But what's left when the world crumbles to dust?
Play as a novice mage, forced to take on the responsibility of saving the world and those that are important to you. Freely explore the world, and take on the final boss whenever you feel ready. Fighting enemies using your spells allows you to gain equipment and level up to learn new spells. Quests can be completed to gain access to new areas, save and unlock allies, gain items and powers, and more. Replays are encouraged because small decisions can have permanent and significant consequences, leading to different game outcomes.
Magic: There are multiple spells to discover and learn. The effect of the spells changes depending on what element you combine them with.
Strategy: The game is a hybrid of real-time and turn based action. As long as no action is performed by the player, time stands still. Tactical and considered combat is key.
Open world: Places can be visited out of sequence, and many late stage areas are available right from the beginning. Exploration is encouraged.
Replayability: Decisions made are permanent. The game can be completed without rescuing key NPCs or even the world itself.
Story: Focus is placed on quality narrative and dialogue. Coupled with the beautiful and unique pixel graphics, custom soundtrack, and ambient sounds, the experience is gripping and atmospheric.
