    [​IMG]The Escapist previewed The Iron Oath demo and noted the use of timed elements.

    [​IMG]

    During exploration, time works against your party, offering debuffs and perks based upon how long you take to finish any given scenario. For example, as I was escorting refugees out of the mountains, my party became restless, meaning that upon entering combat, one of my characters would begin the encounter sleeping. This randomization invites further playthroughs and piqued my curiosity for what other status effects may exist in the full game.

    The demo for The Iron Oath gives players the chance to complete a mission and see the overworld of the game, and that's it for now. Curious Panda Games describes the game's core features as including consequential decisions, contracts that take place over centuries, and an in-depth management system. Unfortunately, none of these elements are present within the demo. It does, however, clearly communicate the tone and base gameplay effectively to make you eager for more.
