Fort Triumph combat demo released

Alert IndieRPGs.com reader Bobz has spotted a playable pre-alpha demo for Fort Triumph posted on GameJolt in anticipation of the game’s forthcoming Kickstarter. Per the developers, this is purely a combat system demo: Current version (0.4.5) has a tactical layer demonstration, no strategic layer nor story implemented yet so there’s plenty to look forward to.

Last Stonelord announced

Italian indie developer Livio Morganti writes in to announce Last Stonelord, which he says is influenced in part by Ultima Online. It honestly looks rather like a single-character survival RPG to me despite its “with RTS elements” description. Speaking of which–here’s the official premise, such as it is: Last Stonelord is an Old school Rpg […]

New release: Witch Hunt

I’m actually a few months late with this one, but hey: it’s new to me! Turns out, Aldorlea Games released another jRPG back in October, mere months after the release of their previous title.

New release: Arcane Raise

R3TR1X writes in to announce the release of Arcane Raise, which he describes as “survival JRPG inspired by the Dark Souls series, with a focus on story-telling through the environment.” Regrettably, Arcane Raise is not about a wizard angling for a pay increase–rather, the premise is that “resurrected hunters known as Shades, fight alongside humans […]

Forged of Blood announced

Word reaches me that there’s a new sRPG in development called Forged of Blood, being created by 10-person Indonesian indie studio Critical Forge. (As an aside, I really enjoy the name of the development studio–it makes me think of a talking anvil that’s constantly snarking at its blacksmith owner: “Oh really, you’re going to forge […]

Downspiral announced

Word reaches me that Ontario developer Matt Gunter of Hey It’s That Dog is working on a new first-person dungeon crawler by the name of Downspiral. At first glance, Downspiral looks like an exceptionally goofy Dungeon master clone; and indeed, Gunter describes it as “a satirical action-adventure RPG set inside a now defunct dungeon.” Here’s […]

Path of Scion announced

German indie devs DigiPig Studio write in to announce Path of Scion, a “dark fantasy” RPG in which you play as a demi-god. The interesting thing about this is, you’re non-corporeal: without any body of your own, you must cultivate (and inhabit the bodies of) various prophets to extend your power and influence. The devs […]
