Hale is a Role Playing Game (RPG) with a turn based, tactical combat system. A lengthy campaign is included, with easy support for the creation of additional content.
You will first need Java 6 or 7 installed. Unfortunately, hale does not currently function with Java 8. Java 7 is available from the Java archive here.
The latest stable release of Hale is 0.6.5, available for download here.
The Release Notes are available for download.
Once you have downloaded the file, simply extract it wherever you like, such as on your Desktop. The extraction will create a folder called "hale". Inside, you will find hale.exe (Windows) and hale.sh (Linux). Simply run the file for your OS to start the game.
