Depths of Peril is a fantasy, single player action RPG computer game. It was developed by Soldak Entertainment and was released on September 5, 2007. Depths of Peril is set in the fictional lands of Aleria. In the game, the protagonist is a faction leader in the barbarian city of Jorvik. The player's main goal is to protect the city from the rampaging hordes beyond the walls, and to become leader of Jorvik. There are other factions vying for control of Jorvik however, and depending on the player's actions they will either become friends, or hinder the protagonist's progress.
Reception[edit | edit source]
Since its release, the game has generally been received warmly by reviewers and gamers. One notable disappointment among reviewers and fans is the lack of multiplayer. The reason for no multiplayer, according to Steven Peeler, lead designer and programmer of Depths of Peril, is that they wanted to focus on the singleplayer experience first, before attempting multiplayer. Peeler hopes to include multiplayer in a future expansion pack.
