New release: Saturday Morning RPG

I remember first seeing a Kickstarter for Saturday Morning RPG some months back. Much to my surprise, it looks like developers Mighty Rabbit Studios have already released the first two installments of this episodic, 80s-cartoon-themed RPG right under my nose. Saturday Morning RPG is a jRPG that banks on the nostalgia of gamers who grew […]

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. The developer description of the game is rather confusing, in that it uses the terms “character” and “player” interchangeably (perhaps a relic from the days when a player […]

New release: Swordigo

Back on March 22, developer TouchFoo released a side-scrolling platformer RPG by the name of Swordigo for the iPhone and iPad. Me, I just heard about it yesterday, so here I am sharing the news. Swordigo’s feature list is sort of generic, and the website says absolutely nothing about the game’s plot, so I’ll simply […]

Red Wasp Design released Call of Cthulu: The Wasted Land for iPhone and iPad on January 30, 2012. Now, they write in to announce an impending PC release on May 5. What is CoC:WL, you ask?

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. It’s iOS-only, however–PC gamers are out of luck on this one. If […]

New release: Pitman

German developers Rat King Entertainment write in to inform me that a 3D graphical roguelike, developed in Unity, has emerged from the depths. In Pitman, you play a dwarf exploring procedurally generated dungeons of varying descriptions in search of treasure. It’s a pretty standard premise, all in all. What helps Pitman stand out a bit, […]

I received an email a couple of weeks ago about a new “Choice Of” game release, Choice of Intrigues. It begins: Dear Craig, Have you ever wished to be the heroine of a romance novel? Think you could have run Anne Boleyn’s life better than she did? Want to walk a mile in Princess Kate’s […]
