Paradox Interactive has announced the forthcoming release of Knights of Pen & Paper 2, which will be coming to PC, iOS, and Android devices May 14th.
It is a sequel to the very quirky role playing game which is itself a game within a game. You play as a group of teenagers who have taken up roles of fantasy heroes playing a classic pen and paper RPG to overcome some dicey situations. One of the improvements over the original are the overhauled 16-bit graphics, as well as new crafting and dynamically generated dungeons.
Paradox invite players to “Return to the dicey world of Knights of Pen & Paper for a new turn-based adventure, where players get to take on the role of players, and also of the game’s encounter designing, rules laywering GM in a fully customizable party. Assemble a group of virtual friends, dress them in class-specific hats, and take on an all-new series of quests, including dynamic dungeons, an improved combat system, new loot and crafting mechanics, and more, as the party faces its greatest challenge yet: the new edition of the ruleset.”
Knights of Pen & Paper 2 will roll out with the following features:
- +2 to impress: The retro adventure makes the leap from simulated 8-bit graphics to simulated 16-bit graphics, providing players with twice the bits
- New Racial Feats: Customize your party members by choosing players such as the Goth or the Rocker, classes such as Wizard or Thief, and for the first time, races such as Dwarves and Elves
- A Game of Throws: Face the whims of the d20 in an overhauled combat system, new crafting and loot, dynamically generated dungeons, and a variety of nail-biting saving throws
- Entirely Too Many Gaming and Pop Culture Jokes: Seriously
When asked about the inspiration behind the game, CEO of Paradox Interactive, Fredrik Wester, explains “When you allow people at your company to dress up in wizard robes and suits of armor, sometimes you wind up with games like Knights of Pen & Paper 2.”
