Got a hankering for a turn-based role playing game, but tired of the same old saving the world cliché? In that case, Celestian Tales: Old North might be one to watch. The game promises lush, hand-painted environments, memorable characters, emotive character portraits, moral decisions and a sprawling storyline, but without resorting to the formulaic elements present in most RPGs. This means no ancient prophesies, world ending catastrophes, or character who is the “chosen” one.

Instead the story is centered on a group of warriors in training for the dangerous threat coming from another land. The characters must learn who they are and where they stand while building up their skills for the impending war. Six playable characters will allow players to view the events unfold from different perspectives, while moral confrontations are presented throughout the game. According to the developers, players will also feel the weight of their character’s actions more due to the absence of rehashed RPG clichés. What intrigues us the most about this title is the fact that good deeds done by one character might be perceived as evil by another, so there is definitely incentive view the events through the eyes of multiple characters.

Check out the launch trailer below and keep an eye on Steam, Humble Store and GOG.com as the PC and Mac version of Celestian Tales: Old North will launch on August 10, 2015.

After being given the opportunity to check out a preview build of the upcoming Rebel Galaxy by Double Damage Games I jumped at the chance as I loved the premise of the game. However, even I was surprised by how well the developers pulled off their take on the whole swashbuckling space adventure genre. My love for the genre stretches back to Star Control II, Frontier and Privateer, but after a couple of hours with Rebel Galaxy I have no doubt that it will be joining the ranks of those titles.

After only a couple of days on Kickstarter Slain! By Wolf Brew Games is already tearing its way towards success. It’s no surprise though as the game is looking pretty impressive and definitely looks like it will deliver on its promise of stunning visuals with gore galore. According to the developers, Slain! Is their homage to all of the gory hack and slash games released back in the 80’s and 90’s and the influences of classics like Shadow of the Beast, Altered Beast and Ghost ‘n Goblins are clear to see.

Fans eager to find out what Nerdook Productions have been up to since the release of Vertical Drop Heroes HD last year should mark September 24th on their calendars. This is the date that Reverse Crawl will be hitting both Steam and the Humble Store. It is a game that turns the tables by giving you the opportunity to be the dungeon instead of the heroes.
