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, […]

A Dragon Named Coal announced

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 […]

Vaporum announced

Word reaches me that Slovakian indie team FatBot Studio is working on a steampunk, first-person dungeon delver. The name of the game: Vaporum. The premise is a little skimpy at present, though I’m sure the developers will plump it up a bit as development continues: Cast away on a piece of rock in the middle […]
