Songbringer announced

Nathaniel Weiss has sent word (or should I say, brought song?) of a new procedural Zelda-alike he and the rest of Wizard Fu Games are developing. In case you haven’t guessed, that would be Songbringer. You may recall me mentioning Songbringer in our last Back to Back; the game got funded to the tune of […]

OneSamurai: Dusk announced

Andrew Sutton of British indie studio Flaming Eye Games writes in to announce OneSamurai: Dusk, an RPG he’s developing set in feudal Japan. Sutton describes the game as a “tactical RPG,” but you can recruit no more than 3 companions over the course of the game, which pretty clearly indicates that this game does not […]

Rain of Reflections announced

It appears that there’s a new sci-fi RPG in development by the name of Rain of Reflections. Swedish indies Lionbite describe Rain of Reflections as a “cyberpunk noir” RPG that seeks to avoid filler and grinding, with a story told through multiple perspectives. The premise: Rain of Reflections tells its noiresque story through three protagonists, […]

Flamberge public alpha released, release date announced

Word reaches me that Flamberge, the simultaneous turn-based sRPG we featured in a Back to Back late last year, was just released this past week for purchase by early adopters. Created by Michael Savage-Benoist and Ben Cohn (now going by the developer name Hydezeke), Flamberge addresses the problem inherent to melee attacks and simultaneous turns–namely, […]

Rachel Blue writes in to announce a new side-scrolling Metroidvania / action RPG called A Dragon Named Coal. In development by Clever Crow Games, ADNC features branching dialog options, open-ended exploration, and the ability to play as a baby black dragon who runs around hacking people to death with an improbably large sword. The premise: […]

Blackfaun announced

Tim McMahon writes in to announce Blackfaun, a top-down action RPG in development by Wild Guess Software that he describes as a mix between Diablo and The Binding of Isaac. It doesn’t have a narrative premise just yet, only this: “Thematically, Blackfaun is a game about perspective – how each character’s point of view and […]

Edge of Eternity announced

We previously covered Edge of Eternity on Back to Back–but given that it’s close to 300% funded, I think it’s safe to treat this one as a game that’s going forward with development. In development by the four-person French outfit Midgar Studio, Edge of Eternity looks to me like the latest of a series attempts […]

Severed announced

So! I was poking around the internets, as I often do, when I discovered that DrinkBox Studios, creators of the critically acclaimed Guacamelee, have been working on a first-person dungeon delver. It’s called Severed, and it has you playing as a young woman with a fantastical (and fantastically literal) sword arm. The premise: In Severed […]

Chasm announced

I covered Chasm a few times in Back to Back entries from last year, but it occurred to me today that I never actually gave the game its own announcement. Well, let’s fix that! Chasm is a Metroidvania being developed by Discord Games. Aside from the game’s really impressive pixel art, the main appeal here […]

Legends of Pixelia announced

Florian Siemer writes in to announce Legends of Pixelia, an action roguelike-like being developed by himself under the name SimaGames. Legends of Pixelia features distinctly lo-fi graphics and combat mechanics that remind me more than a little of brawlers like Final Fight or Streets of Rage. The premise: Legends of Pixelia is an action role-playing […]
