About this game
Exploration. Wandering around in an open world, uncovering ancient secrets or getting into unexpected trouble. That’s what I loved from the RPGs in the 80s and 90s, and what I tried to make here. A setting and a good story is of course important, but the feeling of freedom and making choices with consequences is what actually makes it “role-playing”, and I feel it is nowadays dilluted in the genre. In Exiled Kingdoms, I try to bring back some of the old flavor of the classics of the genre. I hope you enjoy it!
Exiled Kingdoms is a LibGDX isometric 2D game. It has been very fun to work with isometric perspective, although the assets work pipeline is a bit time-consuming. I know nowadays most people go 3D, but I really wanted to make a game that followed the steps of my favorite 2D isometric gasmes from the 90s, at least once. I started development in Spring 2014, so in the end it has taken me 39 months. However work will continue, as I’ll keep expanding content and features.
There’s a lot of content in this game, including 118 areas in total, 85 quests (plus procedural quests), and a bestiary of 120+ different enemies. There’s hundreds of different items, and over 440 dialogues and 300 characters you can interact with.

Story introduction: A dark tale, and a brave new world
A century ago, the Andorian Empire was destroyed by a magical cataclysm that brought The Horrors into our world; humanity was nearly annihilated. Many thousands managed to escape, however, sailing away to the Imperial Colony of Varannar: a savage island, dangerous and unexplored. But mistrust and blame made impossible to elect a new Emperor, and the four Exiled Kingdoms were proclaimed.
Nowadays, the ragtag kingdoms still struggle to survive in a harsh land, often waging war on each other. Empire and the Horrors are, for many, just old legends and fairytales. You are a novice adventurer, rarely paying attention to such old stories; you’re more concerned with your latest misadventures.
But for once, luck seems to be on your side. You received a letter from New Garand, stating that you are the sole beneficiary of a big inheritance. You don’t remember any relatives in the capital of the Kingdom of Varsilia, but certainly that won’t stop you from an opportunity like this! The road to New Garand will reveal many surprises, and will teach you that fairytales and legends can become, in fact, very real.
