New Release Round-Up (November 4, 2021)
Welcome to RPGamer’s new release round-up. In this column we look to provide our readers with details on all of the RPGs released over the week. Please note we do not currently include Early Access releases.
Pixel Heroes: Mega Byte & Magic
Pixel Heroes: Byte & Magic is a pixel-graphic roguelite RPG. Players select three heroes and take them on a procedurally-generated adventure to defeat a cult called the Sons of Dawn. The Switch version includes a new Arena mode, a new campaign, new dungeons, and new heroes.
Solasta: Crown of the Magister
Solasta: Crown of the Magister utilises the Dungeons & Dragons SRD 5.1 ruleset and features a story campaign with players creating their own party of adventurers, with combat that makes heavy use of verticality. Those looking to read more about Solasta: Crown of the Magister can check out RPGamer’s impressions of the game’s initial Early Access release and its PAX Online demo. The release of the Mac version comes alongside its Primal Calling DLC that adds a new Half-Orc ancestry option, Barbarian and Druid classes, and a new two-hour “Wanderer” quest.
Sword of the Necromancer
Sword of the Necromancer follows Tama, a rogue tasked with escorting priestess Koko on her continental pilgrimage. Unfortunately, Koko dies on their travels, and Tama carries her body to the Necromancer’s crypt, where the power to resurrect the dead is said to lie. The game includes two-player co-op and IR card implementation, which can be used to adjust the difficulty. Those looking to read more about Sword of the Necromancer can check out Luis Mauricio’s review of the PlayStation 4 version.
Beat-’em-up roguelite Tunche features five playable characters — Rumi the sorceress, Pancho the musician, Qaru the bird boy, Nayra the warrior, and A Hat in Time’s Hat Kid — who travel across four worlds as they look to restore peace to the Amazon rainforest. The game features local co-op for up to four players.
Undernauts: Labyrinth of Yomi
Undernauts: Labyrinth of Yomi (known in Japan as Yomi wo Saku Hana) is a dungeon-crawler set in 1979 Tokyo after a giant structure suddenly rises from the ground. Players control a team of explorers employed by the Cassandra Company to investigate the labyrinth, where many people have gone missing. The team is not alone as the labyrinth is home to monsters while criminal elements aim to claim resources for themselves.
