Indie Developer Releases Three Musketeers Role Playing Game
Dingo Games has announced the release of their swashbuckling adventure The
Three Musketeers: The Game for Windows and Mac. Available exclusively online,
the game closely follows the plot of the original Three Musketeers novel.
Players take control of the young gentleman d’Artagnan as he sets off for Paris
in hopes of becoming a Musketeer.
Created by independent developer Dingo Games, the game features an old school
top-down perspective with hand drawn 2d graphics. Players duel enemies, gather
loot, and fire muskets as they make their way through the main story. The
setting of 17th France, which is uncommon in games, creates a unique gaming
experience. Minigames and sidequests are specific to the setting – in one
sidequest players help the inventor of the flintlock musket.
The story focuses on d’Artagnan’s adventures with the famous three
Musketeers: Athos, Porthos, and Aramis. Cardinal Richelieu, the most powerful
man in France, launches a plot to disgrace the queen and it’s up to d’Artagnan
and his three friends to save her honor. Later in the game, the beautiful but
deadly Milady de Winter becomes the chief concern of the four comrades.
It took 165 years, but this classic tale has finally been faithfully adapted
into a video game. There is a free demo available for Windows and Mac. For more
