Charlotte, NC - April 2012 - Steel River Games LLC is proud to release its first commercial indie game, The Court Jester. The game is currently on sale for $2.99 at Indievania.

The Court Jester is an action-packed, story-driven 2.5D sidescroller. 

Players control Domitian, a disgruntled jester on a quest to become emperor. But when he meets some unfortunate setbacks, Domitian makes a deal with a fallen god who grants him powerful magic to destroy his enemies.

In addition to simply incinerating legions of imperial soldiers and fire-conjuring priests with his newfound magical abilities, Domitian can also turn wounded foes into ghouls who will fight by his side. The Court Jester also features an in-depth storyline woven into its levels with a dark, yet humorous tone. To reach his goal, Domitian must traverse a brutal world where allies stab you in the back, priests hurl fireballs from on high, and gods and emperors alike are savage killers.
