ESPOO, FINLAND - APRIL 25, 2019. Ctrl Alt Ninja Ltd. announces that its upcoming tactical RPG, Druidstone: The Secret of the Menhir Forest will be released on May 15th, with pre-orders starting now at the developer's home page Pre-orders are subject to a 10% discount from the retail price of $24.99. Customers who pre-order the game get a Steam key and a DRM-free standalone version, and as a special pre-order bonus a free copy of a digital book, featuring concept art, behind-the-scenes information and other material from the making of Druidstone. The book is projected to be released two weeks after the game's release, sold separately at $4.99.

To celebrate the milestone, the developer has released a new pre-order trailer showcasing the various missions and enemies in the game.

Druidstone: The Secret of the Menhir Forest is a labor of love from the makers of the critically acclaimed Legend of Grimrock series. A tactical, single-player, turn-based roleplaying game, Druidstone combines the best qualities of modern RPGs with the elegance of tactical boardgames, presented in lush, colorful graphics that make its fantasy world come to life. Every action counts and careful tactical thinking is a must as players fight their way through the game's painstakingly hand-crafted missions that are as beautiful as they are challenging.

The peace and quiet of Menhir Forest is threatened by a cancerous corruption that spreads through it. Caught in the flow of events are Aava, the archdruid's daughter, who must now shoulder her father's responsibilities, Leonhard, a warden with a mysterious past and a lethal destiny, and Oiko, the failed Red Priest who is living proof that one may be very smart without being particularly wise. Along the way, they meet companions and villains, whose unique personalities and abilities make every encounter memorable.
