https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zSqTF5RFdks As Jordan discusses in the video above, exactly one year ago today we released Shadowrun Returns on Steam. It was a pivotal moment for our little studio here. In 14 months, we'd gone from a dozen developers...

In most fantasy RPGs it's given that your heroes are fearless. Sure, they might temporarily be stricken by a fear spell, but generally all of party members will happily follow you into the dark, dangerous dungeons that have claimed many adventurers before you. Not quite the case in "Darkest Dungeon", an unconventional dungeon crawler that has already raised over a quarter of a million dollars on Kickstarter. In DD, your flawed band of heroes can be subject to numerous fears and afflictions. It's up to you to not only keep them alive but maintain a grip on their sanity. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1460250988/darkest-dungeon-by-red-hook-studios DarkestDungeon PC

3 days left on Kickstarter for this turn-based futuristic dungeon crawler. I hope they can get a few more stretch goals so more of the classes can be implemented. For some twisted reason, I want to recruit the homicidal robot.

I backed this game day one because (1) it’s a tactical turn-based party cRPG based on a good ruleset, (2) the physics stuff looks really cool, (3) there will be multiple choice branching dialogues with lots of opportunities to use bluff, diplomacy, and intimidate skills (4) it’s a "create your own party" RPG, which is rare these days… Subterranea PC Subterranea Linux

Teaser Trailer for upcoming cRPG Unrest. The first ever RPG set in India. Love the music and it looks great for such a low budget indie game. Unrest PC



Really looking forward to this! The improvements include a "save anywhere" feature, less linearity (choose what order to complete missions in and more ways to go about them), and companions with more personality and their own agendas. ShadowrunDragonfall Linux

As of the most recent PSN update, the PSP game "Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time" is now downloadable on the Vita store.

The RPG genre has been severely lacking on the Vita. I highly recommend that any fan of RPGs give Growlanser Wayfarer of Time a shot. With three different story branches (one of which is only accessible after beating the game and starting a "new game+") and over 40 different endings, this game will keep you busy for quite some time.

The battle system of Growlanser series is truly unique- it is a mix of turn-based SRPG and real time strategy that makes for fun combat that moves at a faster pace than other "old school" / SRPGs. The best part about the major battles is that they feature mission objectives that challenge the player to do more than simply "kill all of the enemies"; for example, sometimes your objective is to prevent NPC civilians from being killed. You can still proceed after failing a mission but succeeding means your party members respect you more and results in additional rewards. This keeps the combat fresh and interesting.

The other aspect of this game that I love is the relationship system. Growlanser has the most sophisticated relationship / romance that I've ever seen in a RPG- there are many conversation options that will affect how a character views the protagonist. In addition, decisions you make and how you perform in battle all affect how other characters view you. All major characters have their own ending that you can unlock by befriending / romancing them and completing his or her sidequests.

The only significant flaw is that the first couple hours move slowly as it is mainly set-up / introducing the player to the battle system (but this can be said of most RPGs). The graphics may seem dated to some but I'm a fan of classic 2D RPGs so I certainly didn't mind this. Frankly, the gameplay is so good, I'd still love this game if they used stick figures. Occassionally missions can be tricky when you it is not obvious exactly what must be done. There are some areas where I wish they had more frequent save points.

All in all, every one who considers themselves a fan of RPGs, especially JRPGs should give this game a shot! If you are generally not a fan of anime art style do not let that deter you from getting the game.
