When a developer lists X-Com, Jagged Alliance, Fallout, Baldur’s Gate, and Civilization as the influences for their game it’s hard not to sit up and take notice. These are all games that are permanent fixtures on any decent “greatest games of all time” list, so the developers certainly have their work cut out for them. Called Graywalkers: Purgatory, this 3rd person RPG uses strategic and turn-based tactical elements to immerse players in a supernatural post-apocalyptic world.

The game is set after an event called “The Rupture” that somehow merged heaven, hell and Earth into one place. As the leader of the “Graywalkers” players will have to explore this realm and unite the 36 “Hidden Ones” in order to reclaim the world for humanity. It is certainly a very intriguing backstory and leaves a lot of room for some imaginative locations and enemies.

Developed by Las Vegas and Manila based studio, Dreamlords, Graywalkers: Purgatory promises 3 modes of play, avatar customization, different races, more than 40 playable NPCs, strategic management, factions, special abilities and a whole lot more. Players will get to face off against cultists, gangers, demons, fallen angels, werewolves, zombies and all manner of other supernatural creatures. The game will also offer different paths/classes for party members, including soldiers, agents, arcanist, armsman, diviners, martialist and many others.

The pre-alpha demo available from the Kickstarter page offers a small glimpse of the combat in the game and features two different scenarios to try out. In “Demon Hellgate Assault” players get to take on a huge demon and its minions, while “Necromancer Cult Assault” is a showdown in a graveyard. While obviously still very early, it is already very clear from the demo that the game is going to be a lot of fun to play. The developers have promised that the full release will also have story based side quests in addition to procedurally generated territorial disputes.

The game is currently nearing its Kickstarter goal, but there are still a few days left to get in on the action and bag yourself some nice rewards as well. You can also download the pre-alpha demo from the Kickstarter page to check it out for yourself. Although it is too early to tell if the developers will be able to achieve all their goals for the game, it is certainly looking promising enough. If Dreamlords can accomplish what they are setting out to do with Graywalkers: Purgatory role playing fans are in for a treat.

Imagine what a shock it would be to not only discover that you died 40 years ago, but that you have now also returned as a ghost. This is the fate that befalls a girl named Abigail Blackwood. It gets even worse though, as Abigail also discovers that the rest of her family members were a pretty twisted bunch who dabbled in all kinds of mysticism and weird experiments. Being a ghost does have its perks however, and you must use these to help Abigail uncover just what happened in her absence and why her afterlife was so rudely interrupted.

Otome fans will already be familiar with the big names like Otomate, Voltage and Reject. Newcomers Weeev might be a small group, but their goal is to offer experiences comparable to what players expect from these big developers. That is why Weeev turned to Kickstarter for their debut title, Purrfectly Ever After. In case the name didn’t give it away already, it is a feline themed visual novel starring cute characters and a romantic story.

As much as we loved Bloodstained; Ritual of the Night there was still a small part of us that wished the visuals retained the beautiful pixel art style of Symphony of the Night. It looks like we were not the only ones either as The Last Faith - a dark Gothic Metroidvania by Kumi Souls Games was 100% funded in just 2 days. The Last Faith will allow players to discover the secrets of a decadent world where an ancient religion is the law, but they will have to face horrific beasts to subvert a hidden prophecy.
