The Humble Brag Showcases New RPGs
Humble Bundle has announced a new series called the Humble Brag, a showcase for upcoming games from Humble Bundle’s publishing arm. Included in the five-minute video were several upcoming RPGs and visual novels that may appeal to RPGamers.
The first game, One Step From Eden, is a Mega Man: Battle Network-inspired roguelike deck-builder that puts players in the role of one of nine characters as they battle their way through real-time tactical combat. The game will include Steam Workshop support, local co-op, and local versus modes. It’s set to release on PC and Nintendo Switch on March 26, 2020. The next game covered is Fae Tactics, a tactical RPG where players take on the role of Peony, a magic user who battles fae creatures that can later be recruited to fight alongside her. It is set to release in spring 2020 for PC and Switch.
Ambition: A Minuet in Power is a roguelite visual novel set in revolutionary France. In it, players will control an ambitious woman looking to advance in high society by any means necessary. Decisions players make will even be able to change the course of history. The game is planned to release sometime in 2020 for PC and Mac. Ring of Pain is a dungeon-crawling deckbuilder where the dungeon is comprised of a ring of cards, allowing players to plan ahead strategically. Equipment slots are limited and the dungeon reacts to decisions that are made, so careful planning will be required to proceed when the game releases in the second quarter of 2020 for PC. Finally, The Iron Oath is a hex-based tactical RPG in which players will take control of a mercenary band in a dark fantasy world. Recruit, customize, and watch as mercenaries die off or grow old and retire as decades pass, changing the state of the world as the years go by. The game is set to release sometime in 2020 for PC.
