New release: Oubliette

Next on our list of mobile indie RPGs is another first-person dungeon crawler, Oubliette. Created by GabySoft, Oubliette appears to be a remake of the 1983 original.

New release: Silversword; Silversword 2 announced

I’m a bit late with this, since developer Mario Gaida didn’t email me upon his game’s release. Regardless, a little investigation on my part confirms that the Bard’s Tale-inspired first-person dungeon crawler Silver Sword is now out and is updated to version 2.09.

New release: Darklight Dungeon Eternity

Jesse Zoeller, creator of the original first-person dungeon delver Darklight Dungeon, has released a sequel by the name of Darklight Dungeon Eternity. Looking at the feature list, I get the feeling that the new adjective is meant to describe how long it takes to beat the game: Explore a vast dungeon totaling 50 floors. Defeat […]

Jay Barnson (recently interviewed here) has released the first episode of Frayed Knights, a comedic party-based first-person dungeon delver in the spirit of the old Wizardry games. In his press release, Jay writes: On top of the serious, ‘hard-core’ engine, The Skull of S’makh-Daon layers a world and story with a decidedly more tongue-in-cheek approach […]
