They're as well known as many of the other indies we talk about around here.

I'd say Starbound and Dwarf Fortress are very popular - but they're definitely not mainstream.

2D mainstream/AAA RPGs are very rare - because the mainstream audience tends to crave spectacular visuals - which is hard to achieve in a 2D environment these days.

But I think I've made my point
