Today’s Niche Spotlight is Blacksmith of the Sand Kingdom, a retro-inspired JRPG by Rideon and Kemco.
You play as Volker, a humble blacksmith in the desert kingdom of Muspelheim with aspirations of becoming a famous adventurer. However, the young man’s blacksmith has also become the royal blacksmith.
Balance your budding smithy shop with your adventuring, all while gradually being drawn into the political intrigue and war engulfing Muspelheim. Gather resources in the wilderness to craft items that you can display and sell in your shop, or equip your party with.
Take on quests, interact with the populace of Muspelheim, and form a party of veteran adventurers. Each party member can also be customized with 14 classes (as well as assigning sub-classes), faith, and passive skills.
