Trailer, as well as the latest build of the game, will be showcased at PAX East.
It has been a long time since we here at TVL last spoke about Liege. In fact, you have to scroll all the way back to mid 2013 for the last article on the subject. Funded through Kickstarter, Liege is a 16-bit RPG, with a dark story and gameplay that is “Quick to learn, and difficult to master”.
Ahead of PAX East, which runs from the 6th-8th March in Boston, Coda Games have revealed the trailer that will be showcased at the event. We now know that the latest build of the game will be playable on the show floor, so if you are heading down, be sure to give it a go!
Liege easily surpassed its goal of $15,000 on Kickstarter in 2013 by raising a total of $81,458. That total easily beat the required target of $48,000 for a PS Vita and PS4 release. Along with Sony platforms, Liege will be heading to Wii U, PC, Linux, Mac, iOS and Android.
Coda Games gives this description for the games story:
“One late autumn eve in the Kingdom of Liege, a King, his queen, and their royal heirs fall into a deep slumber from which they never wake …and so our story begins. Following their mysterious deaths, a power struggle in the royal court ensues, and as the conflict quickly escalates, the Kingdom plunges into a bloody civil war. As war erupts across the land, we track the converging paths of characters aligned across various factions, from the noble houses vying for the throne, to the orphaned Royal Army, to an underground movement of outlaws with plans to incite revolution amidst the chaos.
Liege is a story that is written for an adult audience. It’s a drama about conflicted, intertwined, and human characters, forced to wage war for their lives and their homeland.”
Check out the PAX East trailer below, as well as a recently released combat demo for the game.
