Developer Atomic Wolf and publisher Games Operators (the publisher of Rustler [aka Grand Theft Horse], the medieval top-down parody of GTA 1 & 2), are developing another send-up of a familiar genre. Yet Another Fantasy Title is, as the name implies, a fantasy-themed game. It’s a top-down-view open-world action-RPG. Watch the announcement trailer above and check out the first screenshots in the gallery below.
You play an outlaw who’d “normally be prey for the protagonist in some sidequest,” as the Atomic Wolf team describes it. Instead, you’ve killed the kingdom’s savior and stolen his unicorn. An adventure ensues. Yet Another Fantasy Title promises parodied versions of all of the usual open-world action-RPG fantasy genre tropes, such as plenty of sidequests, a comprehensive story, magic, 15 different medieval weapons like swords and bows, and mounts in the forms of unicorns, horses, donkeys, and wolves.
And yes, naturally, there’s a dragon to be slain as well. Yet Another Fantasy Title is in development for PC. Wishlist it on Steam.
