In a surprise announcement during Freedom Games’ live E3 stream, Dark Deity was released on Steam. Dark Deity is a tactical RPG in the vein of Fire Emblem; it is developed by Sword and Axe and published by Freedom Games.
Taking inspiration from beloved strategy RPGs of old, Dark Deity brings the genre back to its roots. Thirty fully voiced characters, including the likes of Kira Buckland (Nier Automata, Persona 5 Strikers) and 50+ are available to be unlocked and customized. The Grave Wounds system also breathes new life into retro perma-death systems. Decisions in battle will determine how units bond, leading to hundreds of character interactions and possible romantic pairings.
