I appreciate that there is a post already detailing the Steam sale, but this game isn't mentioned at all.

It's a little hidden gem that was released with no marketing at all.

It's an RPG which you control with the WASD keys, and instead of pressing hotkeys to fire off spells and abilities, it has a combo system akin to a fighting game. So you take two steps forwards and a step back to fire off one spell, and then a step to the left and a step to the right to fire off another.

The story is quite generic, but fun. However, the unique (for an RPG) control system makes this an interesting game, and an absolute steal for £1.74.

It takes between 15-20 hours to complete, depending on how much exploring you choose to do.
