In Kingsway, Andrew Morrish‘s upcoming PC role-playing game, monsters are pop-ups, quests are emails and your backpack is a cluttered file folder. That’s right, it’s an OSRPG.
Coming to PC later this year via Adult Swim games, Kingsway is a role-playing adventure that takes the form of the Kingsway Operating System, which is basically a primitive Windows/MacOS for the monster-slaying set. Travel the King’s land via World Navigator window, slaying monsters as they pop up on your desktop. Drag-and-drop windows to your heart’s content.
Incredibly creative, and I can’t wait to play this when it comes out. And honestly – the ‘operating system’ looks better than most of the actual operating systems we have today.
I’m definitely looking forward to playing it. It reminds me of Shadowgate for the Mac System 7.x with all the floating windows.
Is it just me, or does it have a strong flavor of BeOS about the look?
