Graveyard Keeper - Released
Posted: Aug 15, 2018, 11:22 pm by RPGWatch

[​IMG]The cemetery management sim Graveyard Keeper is now available:

[​IMG]

Graveyard Keeper


Graveyard Keeper is the most inaccurate medieval cemetery management sim of the year. Build & manage your own graveyard while finding shortcuts to cut costs, expand into entertainment with witch-burning festivals, and use all the resources you can find. This is a game of capitalism and doing whatever it takes to build a thriving business.
  • Face ethical dilemmas. Do you really want to spend money on that proper hotdog meat for the festival when you have so many resources lying around?
  • Gather valuable resources & craft new items. Expand your Graveyard into a thriving business, go ahead and gather valuable resources scattered in the surrounding areas, and explore what this land has to offer.
  • Make business alliances. These dead bodies don't need all those organs, do they? Why not sell it to someone who can put it to good use. Hey, think of it as recycling. Do you really want to know what's in your burger?
  • Explore mysterious dungeons. No medieval game would be complete without these. Take a trip into the unknown and find useful new ingredients which may or may not poison a whole bunch of nearby villagers. Capitalism.

Bard's Tale I - Launched the Second Wave
Posted: Aug 15, 2018, 05:13 pm by RPGWatch

[​IMG]US Gamer continues its series on RPG history by looking at The Bard's Tale: Tales of the Unknown.

[​IMG]

Cranford (along with his collaborators on The Bard's Tale, which included such future video game luminaries as Brian Fargo and Lawrence Holland) put together a game that looked a lot prettier than Wizardry, as well. The wire frame dungeons and crude monster illustrations of earlier dungeon crawlers here solidified into more concrete imagery. Labyrinths now consisted of colored walls with unique "event" spaces rendered in even greater detail. Above ground, Skara Brae's brick walls gave way to meticulously illustrated shop and pub interiors. Even the randomly encountered monsters didn't simply look nicer than in previous RPGs, they actually displayed simple animations.

Arkane Studios - Taking a Break from Dishonored
Posted: Aug 15, 2018, 05:03 am by RPGWatch

[​IMG]@segmentnext Arkane will be taking a break from Dishonored for awhile.

[​IMG]

Despite the critical acclaim that Dishonored 2 got, and the big reaction to the standalone expansion "Death of the Outsider", Arkane Studios has announced that they will be taking a break from Dishonored games for a while, so the next game likely won't be coming out anytime soon for you big fans.

Dishonored has, for the past few years since its debut in 2012, been telling us the story of a number of special individuals in a hostile and oftentimes frightening and eldritch world as they are given the power to take revenge on those who wronged them by a being known as the Outsider.

Queen's Wish - August Update
Posted: Aug 14, 2018, 11:02 pm by RPGWatch

[​IMG]The August update for Queen's Wish details progress so far.

[​IMG]

Queen's Wish August 2017 Update!

Here is the first monthly update for Queen's Wish development! We've been hard at work on the new game, and it is moving along.

Spiderweb games are developed in three phases. First, we work on the game engine and system. This takes 3-5 months, depending on how much of the game is new. In Queen's Wish, almost everything is new.

Then we write the game world, which is about six months. Then 2-3 months of porting to Windows and testing. Then we ship! (And then move on to the ports to mobile.)

What We Did Last Month

We are still grinding our way through the first phase: the main engine.

On the technical side, we spent a while porting our code to a new, powerful game engine called SDL. In this case, the engine is the layer between my game and the computer itself. The game engine we used before was way out of date. This engine is completely current and should support lots of cool stuff, like 64-bit Windows and mouse wheel input.

Then we worked on making the game playable. This involves a million things. Training window. Inventory window. Fully fleshed out combat code. We are trying to get a basically playable game, so that I can see how much of the stuff I've been assembling in my brain for the last two years actually works.

Finally, I scripted the statistics for all of the creatures, abilities, and items. This is tons of painstaking work and takes forever, but the game is now full of critters to fight and treasures to look for.

Rewards

We have sent out messages to the design assistants, and we're getting some great stuff back from them. There are some terrific ideas in there, and I'm really excited.

If you got a signed, singed Certificate of Absolution, watch out for the survey asking for your name, address, and other info. We'll be sending it out soon.

What Is Next

The game isn't fully playable in a near-final sense yet, but it's getting there. By the time the next update is out, we should be able to have full combats, and a lot of the world system stuff (like dressing up your fort, mining resources, and wandering the outdoors) should be in.

It's a good start, but we have a long way to go. It can be demoralizing when I sit down in the morning and look at the To Do list. Then I pick the quickest job to do, do that, and move on to the next job. We'll get there eventually.

And that's where we're at. See you next month!

THQ Nordic - Announces Jagged Alliance: Rage!
Posted: Aug 14, 2018, 11:02 pm by RPGWatch

[​IMG]Jagged Alliance: Rage! has been announced by THQ Nordic.

[​IMG]

Jagged Alliance: Rage! coming this fall

15 August - THQ Nordic
The Unexpendables - Jagged Alliance: Rage! coming this fall

Vienna, Austria, August 14th, 2018: We are all getting older. Nothing bad about that, right? Well, the knees might hurt sometimes, seeing things far away gets a bit harder, and - oh, boy! - the heart is not as strong as it used to be. But we wake up every morning, go to work, business as usual: killing some bad guys, igniting the odd rebellion, overthrowing another evil dictator...

That's what the mercenaries of Jagged Alliance have been doing these past 20 years. And now Ivan Dolvich, Helmut "Grunty" Grunther, Kyle "Shadow" Simmons and the other infamous fighters have a mission again when they're stranded behind enemy lines: survive!

In Jagged Alliance: Rage! you are constantly on the brink of breakdown. Badly equipped and outnumbered, it's up to the player to lead their seasoned mercenaries in tactical turn-based missions and to light the spark of a revolution.

Jagged Alliance: Rage! - Announcement Trailer (UNCUT):

Jagged Alliance is back - With a new take on turn-based tactics, adventure elements and the well-known quirky mercenaries!

Jagged Alliance: Rage! is the first game to be published by HandyGames, the latest family member of the THQ Nordic network. HandyGames will act as an independent publisher, focusing on small and mid-sized projects or 3rd-party indie games.

https://store.steampowered.com/publisher/HandyGames

Jagged Alliance is back - With a new take on turn-based tactics, adventure elements and the well-known quirky mercenaries!

Set 20 years after the first Jagged Alliance, this spin-off lets you experience a road trip into a jungle hell to test your mind and body to the limits!

This time it's just you and a few allies versus an entire island ruled by a drug overlord and his crazed army.

Constantly on the brink of breakdown, faced with dehydration and no support from home, you lead a team of seasoned mercenaries against vastly outnumbering armed forces.

Use tactical brilliance and guerilla tactics to destroy their structures and strengthen the island's population to take back what is rightfully theirs.

Do you have what it takes to rise to old glory?

Features:
  • 2 Player online co-op mode
  • Deep turn-based tactical gameplay mixed with adventure elements
  • Choose a variety of tactics ranging from stealth to brute force
  • Strong character personalities with own skills, desires and personal conflicts
  • Rage skills: Unique character abilities that get more powerful over the course of the battle
  • Powerful Commanders coordinate enemy troops on the battlefields
  • Face terrifying experimental drugs and use them to manipulate your enemies
