Fantasian Part Two Impression

Fantasian continues to impress in part two, expanding its world travel, battle mechanics, and character abilities as the story unfurls. The game is great on mobile, yet a release on PC and consoles would be even greater so more gamers can experience the wonderful title.

Live by the Sword: Tactics Impression

Labrador Games’ Live By The Sword: Tactics promises political intrigue and tactical delights against a backdrop of fantasy world warfare. RPGamer was able to try out its Steam Early Access version to see how delivery of that is coming along.

Death Trash Early Access Impression

With Death Trash entering Early Access, RPGamer takes a look at how the game is shaping up. There’s a lot to enjoy with the game’s combat and storytelling, despite some hiccups with controls and storage space.

Broken Ranks Impression

RPGamer had the opportunity to test Broken Ranks and chat with Whitemoon Games during PAX Online. This free-to-play MMORPG has an innovative battle system and a noticeable focus on story.

Summoners Fate Impression

As part of PAX Online, RPGamer was given the opportunity to talk to the founder of D20Studios about Summoners Fate and sample a demo. This deck-builder offers novel ways of controlling a party and promotes creativity.

New World Outpost Rush Impression

RPGamer was able to attend another virtual preview event for New World. The event provided a look at the game’s PvP Outpost Rush mode, as well as another five-player Expedition.

Kitaria Fables Impression

Kitaria Fables is an upcoming action RPG with an emphasis on providing optional farming and crafting gameplay. RPGamer had a chance to pick the brain of PQube’s Harrison Lewis, and take the game out for a spin.

Peglin Impression

Peglin is a hybrid of roguelike and pachinko from developer Red Nexus Games. During PAX Online, RPGamer was able to chat with Red Nexus Games’ Dylan Gedig to learn more about the game as well as check out its demo on Steam.

Reina and Jericho Impression

Reina and Jericho is a story-driven metroidvania that follows a woman looking to rescue her partner and escape from a tyrant’s fortress. During PAX Online, RPGamer was given the opportunity to chat to Reclamation Games’ Dave Wightman and check out the game’s demo.

Glitched Impression

When darkness emerges, two forces rise to meet it. In En House Studios’ upcoming fourth-wall-breaker, those two forces are the player and the protagonist, going on an epic quest together.

Death Trash Impression

Death Trash looks a bit like a cross between Fallout and Dark Souls, but the actual game manages to carve out a far more unique niche for itself. Those looking for something light-hearted or casual, however, need not apply.

Dark Deity Impression

RPGamer got to look at Dark Deity from Sword & Axe ahead of its stealth release. It’s a welcome and somewhat familiar sight to turn-based tactical fans, with plenty of customization to keep the player coming back for more.

Wolfstride Impression

RPGamer takes a look at a demo for stylized mech combat game Wolfstride. Developer OTA IMON Studios definitely hits every note of a graphically compelling game with its unique comic-book noir visuals.

Ruin Raiders Impression

RPGamer takes a look at Ruin Raiders with a short demo. With adorable animal player characters and the occasional puzzle there’s more than meets the eye with this punishing tactical roguelike.

Coromon Impression

It’s easy to pick out the biggest inspiration for monster-collecting RPG Coromon. However, time spent with a demo and two of its developers show that its full set of influences run a bit wider than that.

Sands of Aura Impression

Chashu Entertainment’s Sands of Aura takes players to a world covered in a sea of sand. RPGamer was able to try out a short demo and talk to some of its developers.
