The Forgotten City - Review (PC 4k)


The Forgotten City is a stand-alone game, spun off from one of the most successful Skyrim mods of all time. It's got a lot going for it, but some execution and presentation issues holding it back from achieving more.

The Ascent - Review @ PC Gamer UK

Posted on Jul 30, 2021 19:32 by RPGWatch

[​IMG]PC Gamer UK has reviewed The Ascent:

[​IMG]

The Ascent review

A quality action RPG set in a mind-blowing cyberpunk city.

Along with thousands of other galactic migrants, your character in The Ascent pays a small fortune for a ticket to the planet Veles, looking for a better life. The moment you step off the ship, however, the price of the ticket becomes a debt so astronomical that you'll probably die before you can pay it off. Even so, the company that owns the massive city you now call home, the Ascent Group, wants its pound of flesh. You are now an indent-slang for an indentured labourer-working dirty, dangerous jobs to pay it off. So much for a better life. Those advertising blimps in Blade Runner were full of shit.

The Ascent's setting, a mix of neon-flecked '80s cyberpunk and grimy science fiction, is magnificent. The story takes place in an Arcology-a self-contained city squeezed into an immense skyscraper-and it's obscene with detail. Think Hong Kong's infamous Kowloon Walled City, crossed with Akira's Neo Tokyo, and populated by the scuzzy aliens from the Mos Eisley cantina. It's a dazzling urban crush of tight-knit markets, bustling plazas, cavernous concrete valleys buzzing with streams of flying cars, and colossal neon billboards casting coloured light over the cluttered, teeming streets.

[...]

The Ascent
A lovingly crafted action RPG with challenging, satisfying gunfights and an extraordinary cyberpunk setting.

Score: 84/100

The Forgotten City - Released

Posted on Jul 29, 2021 00:43 by RPGWatch

[​IMG]The former mod The Forgotten City has been released today:

[​IMG]

The Forgotten City is now available to buy and download!

The Forgotten City is finally here, and we couldn't be more excited for you to play it, and see why IGN scored it a 9 out of 10 [link to The Forgotten City Review] and called it "Amazing."


Before you dive in, here are some things you should know:

The Forgotten City was made by a core team of three hard-working devs. It may have started out as a mod for an action RPG, but like the mod, this game is in a totally different genre. It's a mystery adventure game, which rewards thoughtful conversation, exploration, and puzzle-solving. Combat is a small - and entirely optional - part of the game. If you don't go into this expecting a Triple-A action RPG, you'll have a much better time!

We've taken great care to create a game world with historically authentic ancient Roman art, architecture, costumes, and customs, with the help of two extraordinary historical consultants: Dr. Philip Matyszak (who has a D.Phil from Oxford and teaches at Cambridge) and Dr. Sophie Hay (who has 20 years experience excavating the ruins of Pompeii). We hope you have fun exploring!

Finally, we strongly encourage you to keep playing until you reach the canon ending (Ending 4). You'll be glad you did!

We've polished the game as much as we can, but some bugs are inevitable on Day 1. So, if you experience any issues, please head over to the Discussions / Bug Reports & Fixes section, and we'll do our best to help you!

Most importantly, we hope you have fun! :-)

Chernobylite - Review @ Rock Paper Shotgun

Posted on Jul 28, 2021 00:03 by RPGWatch

[​IMG]Rock Paper Shotgun reviewed the upcoming Chernobylite:

[​IMG]

Chernobylite review: hardly horror, but still a strong survival roguelite

More tense than outright horror, but Chernobylite is still a solid RPG with interesting base-building, management and survival elements that balance nicely to form a fun roguelite loop.

After reading Matt Cox's (RPS in peace) early access review of Chernobylite, I was less scared about the mutant nasties I'd be facing in this horror-y survival RPG and more concerned with how janky it might be. Had the devs over at The Farm 51 smoothed things out for the game's final release? Well, I can safely say that they've polished up the game into quite the pleasant surprise. There's a compelling mystery here that you'll unravel through a mix of base-building, team management, and stealthy survival, and it all fits together to form a roguelite loop that'll actually have you itching to venture back out into radiation-town.

[...]

I won't spoil any of those climatic moments, but Chernobylite's a genuinely good time, folks. The ease of the crafting and the management side of things might lack depth for some, but it does give you a constant sense of satisfaction as you bring goodies back to base and watch it grow. Similarly, the simplicity of its party management ensures balancing their needs doesn't detract from the fun roguelite loop it's got going on. The Chernobyl wilderness might be distinctly "bad vibes" here, but Chernobylite the game gets a big, irradiated thumbs up.

Sorcerous - Released

Posted on Jul 28, 2021 00:03 by RPGWatch

[​IMG]The RPG Sorcerous has been released:

[​IMG]

Sorcerous

Sorcerous is a dark fantasy mystery that's not afraid to break the rules of what a caster is supposed to be. Starring Andraste, the arcane knight, Blaze, the berserker, Lupa, the druid, Nix, the witch and Stormy, the sorceress. Five apprentice mages dripping with style and arcane power and they'll need every spell, incantation and dirty trick to cut through a grimoire's worth of monsters and unravel the conspiracy of dark powers and ancient magic that threatens the city they call home. Over the course of your adventure, you'll explore foreboding forests, decaying ruins, and grimy city streets solving sinister puzzles and completing Sorcerous' over sixty master crafted quests, each designed with twists, turns, thrills and chills. So, watch out! But the rewards are well worth it. Oddities and artifacts, trinkets, and charms, will unlock new depths of arcane power to unleash on whatever gets in your way. So, if you're sick of the spectacled dork every play it your way RPG decides is the mage, pick up Sorcerous and dive into a world of dark magic, insidious mystery, and wicked humor.

Features

14+ hours of game play: Get lost for hours exploring the dark corners and forgotten depths of the ancient city of Lethe, meet new party members, engage in thought provoking conversations, fight lurking horrors and discover strange mysteries.

More than 60 hand-crafted quests: Quests are the driving force of storytelling, a mysterious clue, an overheard conversation, a seemingly simple side job will send you down a rabbit hole of dynamic game play, dangerous combat, cunning puzzles and intriguing ideas.

Customize your party: Strategy is key to overcoming the many enemies that will try to put an end to your adventure, but the new abilities and augmentations unlocked by your ever-expanding arcane arsenal of artifacts, foci, and magical tools will open new avenues of attack and weaknesses to exploit.

Hundreds of items: The city of Lethe is overflowing with curios, oddities and curiosities, some are valuable, others will help you build a better party, still others can be used to take down powerful foes, but all are rich in the lore and story of Sorcerous.

An engaging mysterious plot: Some things are meant to go together: movies and popcorn, alcohol and poor life choices, and stories and RPGs. Sorcerous takes advantage of every opportunity to tell its story, from the broad strokes of cut scenes and exposition to the small details of item descriptions and sound effects.

Wicked cool art: Art impacts every aspect of a game. The environments are a careful mix of gothic, diesel punk and anime. The enemies are a darkly refreshing take on traditional dungeon dwellers, like goblins, ghosts and skeletons. Finally, the leading ladies are cool and stylish in menu images and cut scenes.

Voice acting: No matter how well written, a text box can't convey the tone and nuance of voice an actor can. Creating a compelling fantasy world relies on the strength of characters and voice acting takes it to a whole 'nother level!

Exciting secrets to discover: When exploring the world of Sorcerous, you'll find treasures, challenges, quests and items hidden away, just waiting to be uncovered.

Four highly detailed regions to explore: As detailed as they are sprawling, the places you'll go following a trail of clues are dripping with dark fantasy atmosphere and full of things to discover and enemies to fight.

Tense strategic battles: You'll face enemies in Sorcerous inspired by classic fantasy RPGs of the past, reimagined into cunning dangerous foes and rendered with maniacal detail. You've never fought rats and goblins like these before! Know your enemy and know yourself. Understanding strengths and weaknesses, party composition and equipment are your keys to victory.

Death's Door - Review @ Screenrant

Posted on Jul 26, 2021 23:32 by RPGWatch

[​IMG]Screenrant reviewed Death's Door:

[​IMG]

Death's Door Review: A Gorgeous Action RPG About Death

Death's Door is a gorgeous and responsive action-adventure with a best-in-class soundtrack, and an easy recommendation

For the diminutive crow at the center of Acid Nerve's Death's Door, reaping pesky souls and delivering them to the afterlife is all in a day's work. As coworkers busy themselves at desks or loiter about in the mostly monochrome and dream-like Hall of Doors, the unnamed protagonist is off scouring nearby lands for the souls who got away. In a preview of the Devolver Digital-published Death's Door last month, it impressed with its cozy environments, snappy combat, and generous attention to detail, and the finished game follows suit with those first impressions. Death's Door is a beautiful, refined, and digestible action-adventure with particularly stunning visual and audio design.

[...]

If Death's Door is not mentioned in a list of the year's best indies, it will only be due to its finer focus and lack of complexity or significant depth, which also speaks to the game's utter lack of bloat. Those who are looking for the cavernous biomes of Hollow Knight or the lore-rich epistolatory storytelling in a Souls game may feel shorted by the 10 or so breezy hours on offer here, but Death's Door is a precisely engineered and immersive adventure which will fully satisfy anyone seeking that exact experience. Isometric action RPGs are a dime a dozen, but rarely are they polished to such a brilliant sheen.

Score: 4.5/5
