Not RPG-related, but imho interesting anyway :

- Ducktales Remastered. Remember "Ducktales" ? From the 90s ? Now it's going to the PC. Far too late, imho.

- "Papers, Please !" - An odd game about … people coming into your country. And you've got to check their papers, please. Or their passports. Or both. http://papersplea.se/
German-language report about this weird game : http://www.gamersglobal.de/news/7411…d-kontrolliert

Besides, "Project Ravensdale" (by the Giana Sisters makers) has only 3 days left. I believe that it won't make it. Too much money.

Underrail

Summary

Underrail is an old school turn-based isometric indie role playing game that focuses on exploration and combat. It's inspired by western RPG classics such as Fallout, Arcanum, Neverwinter Nights and System Shock 2.


Story

The game is set in a distant future, when the life on the Earth’s surface has long since been made impossible and the remnants of humanity now dwell in the Underrail, a vast system of metro station-states that, it seems, are the last bastions of a fading race.

The player takes control of one of the denizens of such a station-state whose life is about to become all that much more interesting and dangerous, as our protagonist is caught midst the conflicting factions of the Underrail as the violently struggle to survive in the harsh underground environment.


Features
  • Great character customization possibilities through stats, skills, feats, items and more that allows for many different play-styles
  • Tactical turn based combat that utilizes weapons, energy shields, grenades, psi abilities and more
  • Vast underground world to explore: city states, abandoned building complexes, natural caverns, secret areas and more
  • Elaborate item crafting system

Platform

Microsoft Windows (XP, Vista, 7)


Release date

Second half of 2013.

(with alpha-funding before)

Free Adventure CRPG from Crystal Shard in the tradition of Heroe's quest:

Heroine's Quest: The Herald of Ragnarok


About:
Heroine's Quest: The Herald of Ragnarok is an adventure / RPG hybrid. Like in many adventure games, you have a world to save, and must use your wit, guile and inventory to puzzle your way through. Like in many roleplaying games, you can customize your character with various classes and skills, and must train yourself in combat to stand a chance against the fierce monsters in your way.

The game is designed in the spirit and atmosphere of the classics, and strives to have the same high quality of art, music, and plot. With multiple character classes and several solutions to many puzzles, the game will have excellent replayability.
-> Trailer

Have fun!

Anyone know if the ShadowFlare game/link is dead now? I remember playing that years ago and was hoping to pick it up again for nostalgia's sake

That's weird because:

http://www.shadowflare.us

…just comes up as a blank page for me (both in IE and Firefox). I saw the second link which is great, but obviously just the first episode.

It does for me as well. Luckily I found the cd I made years ago with all 4 episodes and my serial keys in a text file on it. Not much for character customization and no skills, strictly a hack & slash IIRC. But fun for what it was.

We satisfy our endless needs, and justify our bloody deeds, in the name of destiny, and in the name of God.

Here are some interesting Crusader Kings II Mods. I'm putting them here for those that might be interested in playing them.

Middle Earth Project

Link- http://www.moddb.com/mods/ck2-middle-earth-project
This is a full conversion Tolkien mod for Crusader Kings 2 which will feature bookmarks throughout the Third Age. This mod is being developed independently from any other LotR or Middle Earth mods out there. The map will cover the main areas of Middle Earth, known in the books and films. So, Middle-Earth is waiting for you! Will you play as the descendant of one of the noble families of Rohan or Gondor? Will you try to reforge the ancient kingdoms of Elves in Eriador? Or will you try to destroy all the Free Peoples, and claim Middle Earth for Morgoth? This mod will give you a unique strategy experience of the Third Age in Middle-Earth. From Forodwaith to Bellakar, from Lindon to Rhûn, lead your dynasty and survive the Dark Times. Become one of the most important Lords of the Age!

A Game of Thrones


Link- http://www.moddb.com/mods/crusader-k…hrones-ck2agot
“A Game of Thrones” (AGOT) is a full-conversion mod for Paradox Interactive’s Crusder Kings II (CK2). Set in the world of George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire (ASoIaF) fantasy saga where lords great and small vie for control over the lands of Ice and Fire, from Westeros and the Seven Kingdoms in the west, to Qarth in the east. The mod takes its name from the first book in the series, as well as the “game” of plots and politics the ambitious and hopeful are said to be playing in their struggles for supremacy. Currently players are able to choose to play from any start date in the 300 years from before the Aegon's Conquest to the beginning of the fourth book (A Feast for Crows).
Elder Kings

Link- http://www.moddb.com/mods/elder-kings
Elder Kings is an Elder Scrolls themed total conversion for the Paradox Development Studio game Crusader Kings 2. It allows players to live out their dreams of ruling one of the great realms of Tamriel and leading their dynasty through it's various eras and challenges. While still effectively a Work-In-Progress Project, Elder Kings still offers one of the biggest gameplay experiences available for a released CK2 mod!
Witcher Kings

Link- http://steamcommunity.com/groups/WitcherKings
As the name implies it's a mod based on the Witcher Game.

Anyone got any experience with this?

I'd just like to interject here and point out that I'm not going to say anything to spoil the mood, Chief. I'll just float here and watch. Don't mind me, just sitting here, floating and watching, that's me.
