Impressively, Freehold Games have apparently been developing CoQ since 2007. (I mean, 10 years is actually not that enormous a period of time […]

New release: Siralim

Word reaches me that there’s a new creature-summoning dungeon delver out, one with the procedurally generated dungeons one might come to expect from a roguelike. That game is Siralim. Created by the decidedly hard-to-spell-or-pronounce Thylacine Studios, Siralim reportedly includes “over 300 different creatures to summon, each with their own unique abilities that drastically change the […]

New release: The Drop

I know what you’re thinking. “They finally did it: someone went out there and made a dubsteb RPG.” Great guess! But nope. “The Drop” refers not to the musical term, but rather to a new roguelike created by TildeOne Games. Well, okay, maybe not exactly new: the Drop was released in mid-August, though it did […]

New release: Tales of Illyria

Matt Schneck of the unfortunately named indie studio “Little Killerz” writes in to tell me that Tales of Illyria was released for Android devices in mid-June. The plot premise is akin to something that I’d expect in a spy thriller, albeit in a medieval fantasy setting: the Emperor of your country has had you framed […]
