The ever-prolific Aldorlea Games writes in to announce the release of Elendia Ceus, a new jRPG they’ve developed. The premise: What lies beneath the skies?

Chasm announced

I covered Chasm a few times in Back to Back entries from last year, but it occurred to me today that I never actually gave the game its own announcement. Well, let’s fix that!

Legends of Pixelia announced

Florian Siemer writes in to announce Legends of Pixelia, an action roguelike-like being developed by himself under the name SimaGames.

Vaporum announced

Word reaches me that Slovakian indie team FatBot Studio is working on a steampunk, first-person dungeon delver. The name of the game: Vaporum. The premise is a little skimpy at present, though I’m sure the developers will plump it up a bit as development continues: Cast away on a piece of rock in the middle […]

New release: Chesslike

Word reaches me that there’s a new game out by the name of Chesslike. Developed by Moore Interactive, Chesslike doesn’t qualify as an RPG–it’s a fantasy strategy game, and even then only just barely.

New Release: Sunless Sea

Word reaches me that there’s a new top-down, real-time roguelike-like in town by the name of Sunless Sea, influenced by such titles as Elite and FTL. Developed by Failbetter Games, Sunless Sea gives you a ship, lets you hire a crew, and sets you off to explore a procedurally generated, pitch-black underground ocean where you […]
