Indie development studio Burst2Flame Entertainment released today a new update for their turn-based tactical RPG and dungeon crawler looter Stolen Realm, which brings several new features that will affect the core gameplay of the game – as well as many quality-of-life improvements and fine-tweaks. 

Find Stolen Realm on Steam

The main new mechanic implemented in this patch is the inclusion of exploding barrels with area-of-effect damage, as well as movable crates. These items bring new depth to the tactical layer of the game, making the positioning of your heroes more important than ever: crates can be moved, and barrels explode when hit with different effects (Ice barrels slow movement, Fire barrels cause damage, Smoke barrels increase your dodge chance). You can use all this to your advantage… but be careful – so can your enemy! 

On top of that, the new Enemy Modifications feature (which gives enemies random modifiers like High Regeneration, Explosion on Death, or Increased Movement Speed) will make each enemy unique and each battle different. That is but the tip of the iceberg for this update, though – this patch brings also lots of balance changes and quality-of-life improvements; 

ABOUT STOLEN REALM

Stolen Realm is a mix of turn-based tactical RPG and dungeon crawler looter, where you lead a party of up to 6 heroes in single-player or online coop adventures in a low-poly, high-fantasy world. Wield your weapon of choice, unique skills, and powerful magic as a fighter, thief, ranger, or wizard – or create a completely custom character to fit your playstyle, increasing your stats and choosing skills as you level up and loot powerful gear in your adventures. Pick your path between battles, deciding between story events, resource gathering, shops, fights, and treasure rooms, until you get to the final boss of each individual adventure. 

Maybe you prefer being a Shadow Knight, or a spell-slinging assassin? With the game’s multiple systems and flexible customization options, you can choose to invest into a single tree or pick and mix between the 8 skill trees to your heart’s content. Utilize a wide array of weaponry from mythical maces to cursed swords that grant you more power at the cost of your own lifeblood.

Decide your strategy considering all the tactical tools at your disposal. Take advantage of your powers and skillset to divide and smash your enemies with brute force, or perhaps sneak through enemy lines to deliver the fatal backstab as you take on your enemies. Put your strategic skills to the test in a fast-paced simultaneous team turn-based combat where every decision matters – either alone, or along with your friends in online co-op dungeon-crawling adventures!
