Fable: Dene Carter, the co-creator of the Fable series, has quietly released a new free RPG on Steam called Moonring. The game is a retro-inspired, open-world, turn-based title that takes influence from classic RPGs such as the Ultima series.
Moonring is set in the land of Caldera, which has been plunged into darkness following a cataclysmic event. Five hundred years later, five moons have risen in the sky, bringing light to the world and strange Gods with it. Players take on the role of a Dreamer, a person who has been granted supernatural Gifts by the Gods.
The game features a vast open world to explore, filled with dungeons, monsters, and treasures. Players can choose to follow the main questline or explore at their own pace. The game also features a deep character customization system, allowing players to create unique characters with their own playstyles.
Moonring is a free game, but Carter has accepted donations from players who want to support his work. He has also released the game’s source code under an open source license, allowing other developers to modify and contribute to the game.
In an interview with GamesRadar+, Carter said that he wanted to create a game that captured the spirit of the classic RPGs that he grew up playing. He also said that he wanted to create a game that was accessible to everyone, regardless of their budget.
“I wanted to make a game that was free, open source, and easy to modify,” Carter said. “I also wanted to make a game that was challenging and rewarding, with a deep and engaging story.”
Here are some of the key features of Moonring:
- Open-world exploration with a variety of different environments
- Turn-based combat with a wide range of abilities and spells
- A deep and intricate lore system
- A challenging difficulty curve
- A unique and memorable setting
Moonring has been praised by critics for its retro visuals, deep gameplay, and unique setting. The game has also been well-received by players, with many praising its replayability and value.
