I guess that with the amount of loot that the average party of adventuring heroes score from killing evil beasts it was only a matter of time before an agent got involved. Saving the world is a lucrative career, which is why you see so many heroes roaming the countryside in role playing games and killing everything that moves. Thanks to ManaVoid Entertainment, players will soon be able to get themselves a nice cut of all this profit, all from the comfort of their cozy agency headquarters.

The developers are currently hard at work on their fantasy, role playing, tycoon title, Epic Manager. The game will hand you the reigns of your own adventuring agency where you will (hopefully) build up a roster of world saving heroes. The game promises to be an epic, yet lighthearted take on the whole fantasy genre and will also contain plenty of Easter eggs, jokes and gaming references to keep fans engaged.

The game is currently doing the rounds on Kickstarter with a goal of $30,000 and at the time of writing is doing quite well for itself. It’s no surprise either as the developers are promising some rather nifty gameplay elements. With hundreds of random encounters, quests and events it sounds like the game will be able to offer something different for each playthrough. With more than 100 different locations, including villages, swamps, cities, caverns, valleys, plains, deserts and more to explore, your heroes will certainly have their work cut out for them. Each location comes with a random encounter wheel which spins to select what happens. You are then given multiple choices for your reaction which adds a Choose Your Own Adventure/Fighting Fantasy element to the game. Even better, some choices or access to information will only be accessible if you have specific classes, traits or skills in your party.

Players who enjoy roster management and character progression should have a blast with Epic Manager, but overall it sounds like it will have something for everyone. Sending out scouts to find adventurers worth recruiting and then negotiating things such as salaries, loot percentages, contract length and signing bonuses sounds like it has the potential to be quite addictive. The fact that you can combine all kinds of character classes in order to build adventuring parties is also a promising feature. Furthermore,  you will be competing against rival agencies which will certainly ad an interesting spin to the game.

ManaVoid Entertainment is aiming to release the Beta version of the Epic Manager in August of 2015 and the final version in December 2015. The game is already receiving support from other indie developers, with Yacht Club Games allowing their iconic Shovel Knight to feature as a playable character class. There is still time left to pledge, so head over to the Kickstarter page for more information about what the game has to offer. Don’t forget to visit the Steam Greenlight page and vote for the game as well if you like what you see.

Zotrix

Anyone that has spent their childhood pumping quarters into an arcade machine during the 80’s and early 90’s will be happy to hear about Zotrix. This game is based on the shooters from that era and features the usual one space pilot versus an entire alien armada formula that was so popular at the time. The roots of the game might be retro, but this doesn’t mean that it feels like it is stuck in the past.

Have a yearning to conquer and rule a fantasy world? Then the Legends of Fire & Steel Kickstarter is definitely something to check out. According to the developers they were very influenced by oldschool strategy titles such as Heroes of Might & Magic, Warcraft and Civilization as well as board and card games. The end result is a turn-based strategy title that aims to be simple to play, but with enough depth to keep players hooked.

Open world games are rather common these days, all vying to outdo each other in terms of scale and content, but not many literally promise you the moon. Deliver Us The Moon, from Dutch developers KeokeN Interactive, casually mentions “open world lunar exploration” as a feature, which should be enough to get any science fiction fan salivating. The game casts players in the role of a rogue astronaut who is sent to the moon on a secret mission to save humanity from extinction.

    This actually looks like it has a lot of potential. I’m hoping for the Android stretch goal as it would be just the thing for travelling.
