IndieRPGs.com Checks Out Heroes of a Broken Land (Full Release)

With the recent full release of Heroes of a Broken Land, I felt it was time to give the game a second look (especially so because I was somewhat bewildered in my initial attempts to figure out what was going on in the alpha). Here is the altogether much more coherent result from my more […]

IndieRPGs.com Checks Out The Banner Saga

Full disclosure: I backed The Banner Saga on Kickstarter back in 2012. I was excited about it then, and I remain excited about it now.

IndieRPGs.com Checks Out Festival of Magic (Alpha)

IndieRPGs.com Checks Out Fantasy Kommander: Eukarion Wars

Remember Fantasy Kommander: Eukarion Wars? (I hope so–I just posted about it a few days ago!) The developers were kind enough to give me a copy of the game to look at–per tradition, I have done so, recording the affair and providing my thoughts in real-time as I go. Without further ado! (Note: I recommend […]

IndieRPGs.com Checks Out Kanye Quest 3030

There comes a time in a man’s life when he has to sit down and try out a hip-hop sci-fi RPG. That time came for me a few days ago when I finally got around to trying out oddball jRPG Kanye Quest 3030 (previously covered here). The results? See for yourself: My initial impressions: the […]
