Regular Price:


Set out on a grand adventure in this turn-based retro style pixel-art RPG where players take on the roles of in-game players taking on the roles of their characters in a traditional pen and paper RPG session.


During the early days of Behold Studios, with the team still working inside a bookstore, the idea came out after we started chatting about what would be the core mechanics that could be translated to a pen and paper RPG simulator. The first prototype was born out of the simplest version of that idea and, once the concept was tested, the team started working on the full game. When released originally for mobile platforms, the game turned out to be a selling and critical success, leading the team to work on ports for PC and other platforms. KoPP was majorly responsible for consolidation of Behold as an indie game development company and for defining the fundamentals of our future works.


  • The ultimate pen and paper RPG simulation experience.
  • Put together your own role-playing group complete with the game master, the role-players and their respective classes.
  • Fight and explore your way through a perilous fantasy world to defeat the dark mage.
  • Level up and get your hands on more gold to unlock epic items and gear for your party.
  • As the game master, you can set up the fights yourself and choose how many monsters to battle.
