Forced is a one- to four-player co-op tactical RPG, designed in the style of an arcade adventure with puzzles and tactical elements. Condemned as a gladiator slave, you must face deadly trials and creatures to win your freedom; but Balfus, your Spirit Mentor, will guide you in your quest for recognition.


Co-operative Play: Online and local multi-player for 1-4 players, in a cooperative environment reminiscent of Diablo. Players can apply marks to enemies that everyone can spend to deal
devastating damage.

Spirit Mentor System: Balfus is your Spirit Mentor. A controllable guide, Balfus can interact with the world in ways players can't, and can pick up special powers from shrines. He's even capable of turning into a deadly bomb!

Dozens of Trials: Challenge yourself in over 25 arenas, meet the all-zapping Life-Ender Beam and the Choking Mist.

Extensive Customization: Four weapon classes each offer a multitude of skills and can create unique killing-combos.
