The first video game about Hard fantasy was released on September 29, 2011.

This is similar but not identical concept to hard sci-fi, where the workings of things must be known or it no longer is is hard fantasy. No unexplained abilities, magic is clearly defined if it exists, no "it's magic" explanations or handwavings, etc.
