This Isn't An Operating System, It's An RPG

In Kingsway, Andrew Morrish’s upcoming PC role-playing game, monsters are pop-ups, quests are emails and your backpack is a cluttered file folder. That’s right, it’s an OSRPG.

Coming to PC later this year via Adult Swim games, Kingsway is a role-playing adventure that takes the form of the Kingsway Operating System, which is basically a primitive Windows/MacOS for the monster-slaying set. Travel the King’s land via World Navigator window, slaying monsters as they pop up on your desktop. Drag-and-drop windows to your heart’s content.

Should probably hit that avoid button really soon.

It’s all about customizing the desktop to best optimize your workflow. Saving the world from a hideous monster that threatens to blot out the sun is just one of the benefits of being a well-organized worker.

Check out the trailer for Kingsway below. It’s kind of brilliant.

I just hope there’s a “Tile All Windows” button.
