Iratus: Lord of the Dead is an unorthodox, tactical, rogue-like role playing game, set in a dark fantasy setting. The story focuses on a necromancer, imprisoned in a dungeon centuries ago, who strives to break free, regardless of the cost. Players must improve their underground lair, raising undead Minions from the body parts of the dead. They must make challenging decisions, and take part in intricate tactical fights, where one mistake could mean defeat.
The game was developed by Unfrozen, a small independent game studio, based in St.Petersburg, Russia and is inspired by the setting and gameplay of Darkest Dungeon, Dungeon Keeper and Disciples. Developers have attempted to break classic RPG stereotypes, and encourage players to "stand by the dark side".
Necromancy Your Best Friend!
Iratus isn’t a fighter. After all, why train your body for combat when you can order a corpse to do it instead? Rather than get his hands dirty, Iratus uses his necromancer abilities to control the undead. After all, why sully your hands in combat when you have an endless supply of minions to do it for you?
Iratus isn’t some bleeding-heart hero… in fact his blood pump has likely shriveled up into a lump of coal several hundred years ago. A pretty damsel in distress is simply a bag of bloody meat to be stripped for more materials to be used in crafting his minions! But don’t worry, he still has a delightfully dark sense of humor as he goes about his grisly business. Why be an evil overlord if you can’t have some fun doing it?
Morale Mechanics, Oh My!
Your army will strike fear into the hearts of many. If an opponent loses enough of their sanity, they can lose the will to fight and flee. If you’re luckier, they can even die of fear. Since the undead don’t have the same fears as a person, it’s always a quality to exploit in those with still-beating hearts.
Raise your army of undead minions by collecting body parts from your defeated foes. While out of combat, Iratus utilizes his necromancer skills to raise an army with the pieces of his defeated enemies. Use your knowledge of alchemy to give unique abilities to your minions.

Here is his citation: “I’d like to say that it was a real pleasure working with the wonderful and talented gentlemen of The Unfrozen Studios. Even though they are so very far away from where I am, I wish them great success with “Iratus.” If it is, it will I pray, bring my most humble person back from the dead!”
