The diabolical Galagar and his hordes make their way killing and destroying everything in their path, only a bloodthirsty cursed knight can restore hope and defeat the darkness.

During the adventure you will take the role of Sir Gabriel, a knight who was cursed with anger after discovering that Galagar murdered his wife, he only lives to take revenge.
History of Lords of Exile
Lords of Exile was born in 2018 in the room of the Spanish indie game developer CZAzuaga as a small experiment out of curiosity to test the capabilities of perfect pixel rendering and the shaders of Godot Engine, as time went by, the game became more and more popular and the project grew and progressed more and more until it was what it is today. Due to the need for flexibility in console ports, the project has been migrated as a motor and now runs on Game Maker Studio 2.
