Lords of Xulima announced

Lords of Xulima
I’ve received word of a new isometric, turn-based, single-player 2D wRPG by the name of Lords of Xulima. Spanish indie developers Numantian Games have engineered an interesting hybrid that appears to be a wRPG in spirit, but takes an approach to presentation that actually reminds me more of the old Phantasy Star series than to anything seen among modern wRPGs (specifically, its combination of overhead exploration and turn-based, first-person combat).

Per the devs, LoX will feature the following things:

  • Create your party with up to six characters, choosing between 10 classes and more than 100 unique skills.
  • Strategic turn-based combat in first person view.
  • A vast continent to explore, with different environments and climates. You are free to go everywhere from the beginning (but be carefull where you go because the lands of Xulima are extremely dangerous).
  • Castles, towers and temples awaits you to discover their secrets.
  • Inspired by the old-school classics, featuring a challenging gameplay, with riddles and lethal encounters.

This trailer should give you the basic gist:

Numantian Games states that they intend to release LoX by the end of 2013 for Windows, “then for MAC and Linux and then for consoles and perhaps in the future for tablets.” The game will be available in both English and Spanish.
