Folk Tale is a sandbox fantasy city builder RPG game in which you lead a ragtag band of peasants in growing a small settlement into a thriving market town, while the dastardly Slavemaster Urzal and his minions plot your downfall. Sound the rallying call and head out into the wilds with parties of heroes and fight back the tide of evil in a game of endless possibilities.

Rule with tyranny and oppression, or liberalism and justice. Play as a merciless expansionist hell-bent on destruction, or as a gold-hoarding mercantilist who'll sell their own grandmother. With random events and dynamic story, in Folk Tale you never know how the story will unfold.

Folk Tale
for PC, Mac and Linux is developed by indie collaboration studio Games Foundry. Our small team spans 13 time zones and is yet to meet face to face, but talk every day to bring you a refreshing and exciting break from conventional gaming.

Folk Tale Alpha will be available on Steam Early Access on May 31st ( May 30th in the USA ). Please visit for more information on Early Access.

Only if developers utilise Steam's DRM. It's entirely optional.

It's still forcing me to use their client to gain access to the content, thus digitally restricting me.
