A 3D indie RPG with old-school flavor and a tongue firmly planted in its cheek. Frayed Knights: The Skull of S'makh-Daon features turn-based combat, over a hundred spells (mostly upgradable), over 80 skills (feats), dozens of monsters, and 30+ hours of gameplay. It also features new innovations like the Drama Star system to provide an incentive to play through setbacks rather than reloading, and a detailed trap-disarming / lockpicking mini-game. Now available for Windows XP and above.

GameBanshee wrote: "2011 brought us a healthy dose of independent RPGs, but none of them stood out quite like Frayed Knights: The Skull of S'makh-Daon did. A living tribute to the old Might and Magic and Wizardry games, this long-in-development labor of love by Jay Barnson (and some especially dedicated friends) kept us coming back for more with its excellent turn-based combat and entertaining writing. Old-school in both its interface and gameplay, additions (innovations?) like Drama Stars helped alleviate some of the frustrations that often come with RPGs from years past, and its literal hundreds of spells and feats gave party-building fans plenty to chew on. It might not have been the most polished indie game released this year, but it's hard to deny the entertaining gameplay that took RPGs back to their roots."

Frayed Knights was also the runner up for new category of "Best Character System."
