Rise of the Forsaken is a dark-themed and turn-based mini RPG  where you guide those who have been forsaken out of the corrupted land. 

This game was made for Hisar Jam with the theme "Linked"

Every party member has their respective elemental spell i.e. Fire, Ice, Wind, and Earth. 

By linking together two party members, they gain a large amount of shared HP and MP. Additionally, they each gain access to a combined magic spell powered by their elements. Example here.
