The Way Of Wrath is a narrative-driven turn-based RPG that takes you on a harrowing journey through a shamanistic world full of mystery and danger that will make you fall in love with roleplaying games all over again.

The Way of Wrath is a narrative-driven tactical RPG set in an ancient world governed by shamanistic laws featuring turn-based, dynamic combat and a non-linear world where your decisions matter. Journey through a meticulously handcrafted landscape, carrying out quests and interacting with NPCs, each with their own interactive storylines influenced by the choices you make. Unrelenting environmental hazards, scarce supplies and vicious enemies are only a few of the adversities you will encounter as you work to rebuild a rundown fort and maintain the morale of the troops in the face of an oncoming enemy onslaught. 

The Way of Wrath is set in a time where the line between myth and history is blurred. After returning home following a devastating defeat at a war overseas, the player must rebuild a derelict fort and unify their people to survive the coming invasion. Players will explore a giant game world, secure resource sites, gather allies, and sabotage enemy camps in the 10 days preceding the enemy attack, then experience a climatic siege finale where all their efforts and choices are put to the test.

The Way of Wrath also features a full character creation suite with playable origins, a survival system involving hunting for supplies and establishing resource camps around the map, and a deep diplomacy system where tribes can be allied with or waged war against. Every NPC has a name and routine and their relationships and fates change with each passing day based on the decisions the player makes, creating a dynamic storyline where every choice counts.

Whether you lead with an iron fist, diplomacy, or trickery is up to you, but with every choice you make be prepared to face the consequences.

After a succesful kickstarter campaign earlier this year, developer Animmal has signed a publishing agreement with Hooded Horse.

“We have put our hearts and souls into this project,” said Dato Kiknavelidze, CEO of developer Animmal. “We're very excited about this partnership as Hooded Horse has a very unique and developer-friendly approach. They are RPG and strategy gamers at heart, and we instantly clicked with their team.” “We’re proud to have The Way of Wrath as our first published RPG,” said Tim Bender, CEO of publisher Hooded Horse. “Its exciting mix of strategy and RPG is a perfect fit for our strategic focus, and we look forward to helping Animmal deliver a great game next year.”

Key Features:

  • Classless RPG system. Customize your character’s appearance, origin, skills, and reputation.

  • Choice & consequence. Experience the aftermath of every action and shape your story.
