New release: Steam Marines

Word reaches me that Steam Marines, the sci-fi outer space squad-based tactics roguelike from developer Worthless Bums, has been released after more than two years in development. True to their name, Worthless Bums haven’t provided us with a narrative summary, so I’m just going to write the game an ad hoc one from memory right […]

New release: Neighbourhood Necromancer

One Choice of Games release that I forgot to post about a few months ago is Neighbourhood Necromancer, a choose-your-own-adventure / RPG hybrid with a sort of reverse “Zombies Ate My Neighbors” plot, written by Gavin Inglis. The premise: Command the undead to take revenge on the suburbs! Oh, everyone at school laughed at you, […]

New release: Yeti’s Parole Officer

Folks, I have a confession to make: I’ve been slacking a little. Choice of Games has been releasing RPG / choose-your-own-adventure hybrids for months, and yet I’ve been continuously neglecting to post about them. Well, that streak of fail ends today with Yeti’s Parole Officer, written by KT Bryski! The premise: The Yeti, Loch Ness […]

New release: Lethal RPG: War

I did a double-take when the words “Lethal RPG” appeared on my computer monitor. “Wait a second,” I said. “Lethal RPG? Isn’t that a friggin’ enormous series of somewhat rudimentary Flash RPGs from approximately a zillion years ago?” Five seconds of Googling later, and behold: this is indeed a jRPG in that very same lineage, […]

New release: 500 Years Act 1

Do you ever get an email, then completely forget that it exists before you have a chance to do anything with it? That evidently happened with the subject of today’s post. Poor Will Games wrote to me back in May to announce the release of their real-time space exploration RPG 500 Years Act 1 on […]

New release: Madam Extravaganza’s Monster Emporium

There’s a new jRPG in town courtesy of John Wizard Games. The name? Madam Extravaganza’s Monster Emporium! The premise is a little vague, but it’s all we’ve got, so here it is: Located in Monsterville, the town in the woods… Do you ever wish you had more? That you could leave it all behind and […]

New release: Subterra

It has been a few months since I went trawling around RPG Maker game affiliate sites looking for new jRPGs, and when I did so today, I was not disappointed. Among the new releases that have flown under my radar is a Warfare Studios title known simply as Subterra. The premise: Earth is nothing but […]

New release: Tactics Maiden

Mangobile, the developer behind the ever-growing mobile strategy RPG franchise Kingturn, has released a brand new mobile strategy RPG by the name Tactics Maiden. The developers have not released any sort of narrative summary, so I have no idea what the storyline is. In fact, it isn’t immediately clear to me whether this even takes […]

New release: Wind Child Black

Word reaches me that there’s a new RPG Maker jRPG on the scene. It’s called Wind Child Black, and it appears to be something of a collaboration between Warfare Studios (the prolific developer behind Jade’s Journey, Opaline and Vengeance Road) and Amaranth Games (the even more prolific developer behind Ahriman’s Prophecy and the Aveyond series). The […]
