Sub-genre of fantasy that downplays the fantastic elements (e.g. magic) while still retaining the general fantasy theme.
The first video game about Low fantasy was released in 1982.
Low fantasy downplays the fantasy elements, even almost completely subduing magic, epic aspects, and even putting them in a real-world setting or something closely related to it. These are likely considered more realistic and grittier representations of fantasy genre overall, even in comparison to dark fantasy in terms of the latter.
