Cruelty and skabreza now in vogue. Raznezhennye city dwellers, my entire life is not curled neck is not a single chicken, enthusiastic peep from movies and games with the rating «R». They stigmatize the work, which is not shown scenes guts gutting and cutting off hands, heads or genitals (the latter is especially appreciated). And if the characters do not tend to perversions, not seen in the abuse of alcohol and / or drugs, and especially if they are just decent people, not prone to commit meanness and craven acts – not to see the creation of their participation in popularity and people’s love.
But what if all of the above you do not like? You can, for example, try RPG Willy-Nilly of Knight of the tiny Russian studio Double Dice Games. This is a rare in our time, quality product, for which passage is possible and very relaxing, and the kids play without fearing for their mental health.
Willy-Nilly Knight is a lot like a simplified version of the Divinity: Original Sin with an atmosphere of light, good-natured tale. And simplicity is not rolled into primitivism, but only makes the game a friendly and enjoyable to master. Local schedule is very simple in technical terms, but bright (not acidic!)
Colors and three-dimensional neat little world of the game pleasing to the eye and perfectly convey the atmosphere of the fairy world.
Or, say, the story: the story of the hero who is in the fairy-tale version of medieval England, is simple and straightforward, but “fabulous”, well written and filled with a heap of references to a variety of movies and games. And, again, these references friendly: with green face character does not rip up your belly with a chuckle, to demonstrate that he is – the Joker.
Yes, and text quests – voice acting in the game, and it is unknown whether or not – is left to imagine the impression of “friendliness”.
They are written in accessible, even the language, do not suffer from the domination of inappropriate jokes and jargon. In this regard, Willy-Nilly Knight deserves flattering comparisons with King’s Bounty from Katauri.
Friendly and gameplay. Made under the classical scheme – the world of research in real-time and turn-based tactical battles – it puts the player in front of clear objectives, but it is not so easy and simple to get bored.
Skills in the tree of characters (to travel, of course, be with your buddy) quite a bit, but all of them are really useful on the battlefield. A battle easily won if more or less thoughtful use of their opportunities, not trying to shove ahead. And the AI opponents, even the stars from the sky is not enough, not a feeling that has to fight with idiots.
As expected role-playing game, in Willy-Nilly Knight bulk things you can get a variety of ways, and get on to the characters, and full of side quests, among which there are also some very funny in terms of plot. Dark dungeons, blunt cheeky goblins and other evil spirits in the game, of course, also in abundance.
While Willy-Nilly Knight is in the early stages of access, but now the game looks almost like a finished product. Storyline campaign the game can go from start to finish, the special technical and balanced was not noticed problems.
The only thing more annoying – the building does not become transparent, often closing a main character, although it is quite a standard for isometric RPG function.
