New release: Dex

RPG news has been a bit slow lately, or so it has seemed–I keep digging down into my inbox and deleting dozens of emails from PR flacks about games that aren’t even arguably RPGs, then getting frustrated and running off to do something else.

Hey guys! Remember Whalenought Studios‘ game Isle of Bxnes? (I mean, you should–I only posted about it just a few short months ago.) In case you don’t: Isle of Bxnes is a Stone Age Diablo-alike with a highly stylized pixel art aesthetic and a brutish primeval setting. The premise: Survive the brutal trek east with […]

New release: Valdis Story: Abyssal City

Remember back when I first wrote about side-scrolling action RPG Valdis Story: Abyssal City?  That sure was a long time ago, wasn’t it? Well, it just so happens that developers EndlessFluff Games went ahead and secretly released the game at some point between then and now! (I say “secretly” because I didn’t hear so much […]
