Looking for a meaty interactive fiction RPG to jump into? Raiders of the Icepeak Mountains has received a new update and expansion that adds over 20,000 words of new content!

Raiders of the Icepeak Mountains is an interactive gamebook with roguelike elements heavily rooted in the fantasy genre.

If you’re a fan of dice-based RPGs, this is a must-play. It’s similar to other titles we’ve covered like Basements n’ Basilisks and Arcadie: Second-Born.

The base interactive novel dropped with 140,00 words worth of content and is available on Steam, Google Play, and the App Store.

The interactive gamebook is also on sale until July 13th! It features a very classic, fantasy-inspired setting, where orc tribes on the Icepeak Mountains are threatening human settlements… How you handle it is up to you!

Here are the features from the Steam listing:

• A gamebook similar to those written in the 1980s and 1990s.
• A dice-based RPG with Roguelike elements. No two games will be the same.
• Detailed branching narrative system.
• Play as male, female, or nonbinary. However, do note that there is no romance to be found here.
• Four character classes to choose from: fighter, wizard, cleric or rogue.
• Over 30 different spells to choose from. Will you use a vampiric ray to absorb the energy of your enemies and heal yourself, or the invisibility spell to pass by them without being noticed?
• Multiple types of melee attacks and abilities to use. Cripple your enemies with powerful blows, or adopt a defence stance.
• Dozens of magic objects to use, from magic weapons to potions or scrolls.
• Hordes of enemies to fight, each with their own characteristics and weak points. Will you manage to defeat orc warlords, overcome powerful elementals, and slay mighty dragons?
• Several illustrations to enhance your experience.
• Try several different difficulty settings. Play as a mighty invincible hero, or struggle to defeat the game on the harder modes. What is the maximum score you can reach?

If you’re looking for a new RPG to jump into, don’t sleep on this. Unlike other Hosted Games/Choice of Games titles, it’s also not completely text-based, there’s some cute illustrations to go along with it.

There’s also plenty of different playstyles to go for, and four different classes to choose from—fighter, wizard, cleric, and rogue.
