Define the deeds and identity of Robin Hood, outlaw of Sherwood Forest; recruit allies, forge alliances, find love; and chart a path between war, negotiation, and dangerous magics. Your choices are remembered and your actions shape the world, but you can’t do it alone.[Continues below]

Originally launched on iOS in 2017, Nocked! True Tales of Robin Hood comes to Steam with over 100,000 additional words added and restructured game mechanics. 

Developer, Andrew G. Schneider said: "Nocked’s desktop launch is more than just an additional hundred thousand words, hundreds of pieces of new art, and an hour of music; it’s a complete restructuring of the game, where narrative begets mechanics to create a complete story-based RPG experience."

Nocked! True Tales of Robin Hood launches on Steam 17 July 2019 priced at $19.99 for the game (with a 15% discount on the first week of launch), and $9.99 for the wonderful soundtrack written by Ivan Oberholster.
