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: Deadly Dungeons

I spent some time this past week trawling various mobile app stores, looking for indie RPGs I hadn’t heard of. It turns out that there are a ton of them! I’ll be going down my list over the next week or two, posting about the games I found. First up, we have a first-person dungeon […]

New release: Chain of Retribution

Chain of Retribution is a free jRPG created in RPG Maker. More interestingly, however, it’s also a “chain game.” This means that it was created via the game design equivalent of Exquisite Corpse. To wit: one designer worked on it, then passed it to another, who then worked on it and passed it on, and […]

Pocket Heroes announced

Second only to procedural generation, cooperative gameplay seems to be the biggest trend in indie RPG development right now (Dungeon Dashers, Boot Hill Heroes and Secrets of Grindea being three examples that come immediately to mind). Adding to the pile is Pocket Heroes, a multiplayer cooperative dungeon crawler in development by F5 Games exclusively for […]

New release: Voyage to Farland

Patrick Casey of Peculiar Games writes in to let me know about a roguelike he created called Voyage to Farland. Casey describes Voyage as a “Mystery Dungeon” graphical roguelike inspired by Shiren the Wanderer. Technically, this was released all the way back in 2010, but hey–it’s new to me. VtF runs exclusively on Android phones […]

Hartacon announced

Charlie Fleed has just announced Hartacon, a multiplayer isometric turn-based tactics game for XBox 360 Indie Games. It clearly draws a lot of inspiration from Disgaea in its visual style, though it appears to be pure 2D in its implementation. I quote now from the developer: Hartacon is a tactical multiplayer RPG game developed with […]

Malevolence: The Sword of Ahkranox announced

Word has it that there’s a first-person RPG on the horizon with a “literally infinite” game world. It goes by the name Malevolence: The Sword of Ahkranox (which sounds to me like Stan Marsh’s older sister trying to say “equinox”). Interestingly, it seems Malevolence features turn-based, grid-based movement a la the early Might and Magic […]

Grim Dawn announced

I’m way late on this one, but better late than never, right? The creators of Titan Quest have gone indie and are hard at work on a spiritual successor to the initial, decidedly non-indie Diablo-alike that made them famous. The name of that successor is Grim Dawn, and its plot is…well, pretty grim: Players will […]

New release: Wanderlust: Rebirth

Here’s another one for the “New to Me” file. Team Wanderlust writes in to inform me of the existence of their four-player co-op action RPG, Wanderlust: Rebirth. This one was evidently released in mid-June of this year, if you believe the reviewer over at TIGSource (personally, I believe him). Here is how the developers describe […]

New release: Dreamscape

File this one under “New to Me”: last year, Aldorlea Games released an RPG Maker jRPG by the name of Dreamscape. Today, you can read a new, short review of the the game up on DarkStarMatryx, in which the reviewer describes Dreamscape as reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland. (Insofar as the game’s premise involves delving […]
