Chronicles of a Dark Lord episodes announced / released

Are we tired yet of RPGs where the twist is that you play the bad guy? No? Good. In that case, you’ll be glad to hear that there is an indie jRPG series called Chronicles of a Dark Lord in that vein, created in RPG Maker by Kisareth Studios. Actually, that’s not true: there isn’t […]

New release: Earth and Legend

New from the Neverending Backlog of Mobile Indie RPGs comes Earth and Legend, a 3D over-the-shoulder action RPG by Dvide Arts. It strikes me as a pretty competent Elder Scrolls clone, right down to the dull storyline. Speaking of which: As time passed on, each of the four Elementals used their unique powers of fire, […]

New releases: Gurk and Gurk II

Gurk and Gurk II, Android apps from developer Larva Labs, Ltd. are top-down, turn-based role-playing games that are at least superficially reminiscent of Ultima V. We’ll start with Gurk, a free game that offers “a 3-character party, 24 dungeon levels, 44 different items, 23 unique monsters and a vast wilderness.” It seems fairly basic, but […]
