Movie Night: Tales of Maj’Eyal, Hartacon Tactics and Steam Marines

Happy Monday, and welcome to another glorious week of exploring the exciting and ever-expanding world of indie RPGs! While I do some digging into some new and obscure projects, why don’t we catch up on some games we’ve previously covered, complete with videos? (Or, as I like to call it: Movie Night!) First up, we […]

IndieRPGs.com Checks Out Bonfire

I got a chance to check out Bonfire last night, as Moacube was kind enough to send an alpha build my way. As is my custom, I made a video of the proceedings. That video follows: More than anything, the combat in Bonfire makes me think of a turn based variant on The Spirit Engine […]

Movie night: Dead State

It’s been quite a while since we last heard from Double Bear, developers of Dead State. I was started to worry that their game might be in sort of a dead…state. Well! Banish the thought. DB have put out a nearly 10-minute long video showing the game’s combat system. Kick back, toss off your shoes, […]

IndieRPGs.com Checks Out Delver’s Drop

Last month, I posted about Delver’s Drop and interviewed developers Pixelscopic on certain aspects of how the game will work. Yesterday, I actually got my hands on a pre-alpha build and took it for a test drive. What you see here is not a finished game, but I can confirm that what they have done […]

IndieRPGs.com Checks Out Driftmoon

I’ve been itching to try out Driftmoon ever since its release last week; in this video, I scratch that itch. Among other things, this is the first (and probably only) time you will hear me read dialog as a hermit crab pirate. Come watch as I play through the first 35 minutes of Driftmoon!

IndieRPGs.com Checks Out Discord Times

Ever since checking out the early beta of Legends of Eisenwald last month, I’ve wanted to compare and contrast it with Aterdux Entertainment’s earlier title Discord Times (which sounds like a newspaper, but is decidedly a video game). Legends of Eisenwald is basically an unofficial sequel to Discord Times, so I figured it’d be interesting […]

Movie night: Wasteland 2

Wasteland 2, the game InXile successfully Kickstarter’d to the tune of nearly $3 million last year, just saw its first public video released over the weekend, and it’s quite a doozy. We’re talking 17 minutes of footage that…well, I won’t spoil it for you. Here’s the First Look–see for yourself:

IndieRPGs.com Checks Out Anodyne

Happy Friday, everyone! As a special treat, I bring to you a new episode of IndieRPGs.com Checks Out, this time having a peek at the moody, atmospheric Zelda-alike Anodyne (previously covered here). Sean Hogan, one of the game’s developers, updated the official demo yesterday in anticipation of Anodyne’s planned release on February 4th; I’ve been […]

IndieRPGs.com Checks Out Legends of Eisenwald

Last Spring, you may recall me having posted about Legends of Eisenwald, a King’s Bounty-style RPG by Aterdux Entertainment with castles, garrisons and turn-based tactical battles. LoE was more than 2 years into development at that time, and was well on its way to raising what would turn out to be more than $83,000 on […]
