IMPORTANT: Make sure CAPS LOCK is not on while playing this game, otherwise some buttons won't work. It's a flaw in the code, sorry about that...

The Rise of a KING takes a turn to the role playing genre, but still retains the action from its predecessor. If you havent played The Rise of a Knight, then there is a "Story so Far" section where you can watch a slideshow of what happened in the first game.

Explore the world in and around Stormguard Castle as you start off on your first day as a Knight. Times are getting dark with the current king and many others behaving strangely while more and more dangerous creatures appear, causing trouble all over the kingdom. You seem to be the only one to see the obvious corruption, and its up to you to dissolve this matter...

EDIT: For some reason the link to play The Rise of a Knight doesnt work in the game. I have no idea why, because it works on www.ArmorGames.com. If you want to play the first installment of this 2-part series, then just go to my profile here on Newgrounds, or choose The Rise of a Knight from the drop-down menu on this page.

NOTICE: Anyone is free to make videos of my games. Sharing video game experiences with others is really nice. It gives me some exposure while the people who make the videos get something back in return. I fully support the monetisation of any video you make containing footage from my games. As long as you don’t claim to be the creator of my games, it’s all good! Throwing my name, SeethingSwarm, as the creator into the description or into the video itself is also always appreciated.

Heh, thanks! :)

This would be a great game if it got a handful of improvements.

-Needs more save-game locations. Going through 3 forests and a castle to get to a save-game spot is not fun, when I just want to save my progress and shut my computer down.
-Needs less distance between objectives.
-I found myself getting lost and not knowing where to go, quest log is not very informative and the King i took the first quest from refuses to talk to me again about the quest, he just orders me to get the job done.
-When you view controls or look at your quest log, you get in combat and can't fight back until you get out of the quest-log screen, which is annoying. Making the game freeze when you view quest log or controls would be a huge improvement.

I can't believe you just compared one of my oldest games to God Of War. That's awesome! Really glad you enjoyed playing it and thanks for the 5 stars!

kinda needs to be made better

Maybe have it save every few seconds because of the completely bullshit combat that gives every enemy an attack faster than yours that will stop every single one of your attacks.
