Telepath RPG: Servants of God is a hybrid western RPG / strategy RPG set in a unique Middle Eastern steampunk fantasy setting. You are a telepath with the power to read and manipulate minds--or destroy them. The city-state of Ravinale has been overtaken by a zealous theocracy. Rescued from an unjust imprisonment, you have only one chance to save your homeland. Explore the continent, recruit soldiers, strike deals with different factions, and fight to reclaim the home you once knew. * Tactical turn-based combat where positioning and planning are key * Branching dialog and quests with multiple endings * Different races and factions, each with its own agenda * Dozens of different psychic and physical abilities to manipulate and decimate your enemies * A variety of characters that you can choose to recruit, grow close with or alienate * Lasting consequences for the choices you make throughout the game
Desura users have sent me countless messages saying that they want Telepath RPG: Servants of God, but want it for $10 or less. Well! For all of you who've been dying for a price drop, you now have your chance: Telepath RPG: Servants of God is now part of the IndieFort Bundle.
The IndieFort Bundle lets you mix and match indie games to create your own preferred bundle. Want to get Telepath RPG: Servants of God, Cardinal Quest and Dark Scavenger for $3.99? You can.

Frankly, even if you want no game other than Telepath RPG: Servants of God, getting just TRPG for $3.99 means you're getting an 84% discount. In short: you'd have to be kind of nuts to pass this up.
And hey: if your conscience starts itching because of the absurd discounts you're getting on these games, you can always choose to give extra money straight to the developers. You won't hear any complaints from me about that.

I gave the demo a whirl. It's got a fairly decent introduction. The gameplay is pretty entertaining. While introducing nothing really new, it manages to avoid being clunky, mostly by being simple. Which is a good thing. More gauges and bars really doesn't do a lot for the games these days that pollute the screen with an irritating UI. That being said, I can see the protracted battles that are sure to come after the intro/demo period is over becoming very tedious. There's enough distinction between…

The game claims Linux support and the engine is listed as Flash but when I tried to install the demo, it checked for Adobe Air. I tried installing the last supported version of Air for Linux but the game would not run on it. As such, the game doesn't run on Linux.
Do not purchase this game if you are using a Linux-based operating system.
