Corey and Lori Cole have been designing games for over 30 years, at Sierra Online and now at their independent studio Transolar Games. They were the pioneers behind the adventure/roleplaying hybrid, combining computer roleplaying games with graphical adventures. They’ve previously worked on the Quest for Glory series, Castle of Doctor Brain, Terry Brooks’s Shannara, and Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption, set in the world of Quest for Glory. Here, they distill adventure games down to their core element: the story. This does not have inventory-object puzzles, 3D combat, or mazes of alleyways to explore. Instead, the focus is on story and characters. The result is a polished interactive novel suitable to hardcore Quest for Glory fans and novice players alike.

9 Years of Shadows Halberd Studios [top]

Release Date: TBA This is a metroidvania type game, realized in the convention of a platform action game. The game was developed by the independent Mexican team and was made possible, among other things, by a successful crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. Among the sources of inspiration for artists there are cult games like Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Super Metroid and Mega Man Zero. It takes us on a journey to a fantastic universe devoid of colors by a dark curse. The main heroine of the game is a warrior named Europa, who explores the secrets of Talos, a giant mechanical castle that used to be an orphanage. The protagonist's task is to unravel the mystery of missing orphans and to face the forces of darkness lurking in the shadows. The action is shown from the side. As we walk through countless corridors and rooms of the castle, we jump on the platforms, avoid traps and face various enemies, headed by powerful bosses. In addition to Talos, there are places to visit that are related to the memories of missing orphans; through the paintings that depict them we can move to, among others, oriental lands or the revolutionary Mexico City. The battles are dynamic, and during them you should not only show dexterity and reflexes (for example, to make a timely evasion and a counter-attack), but also skilfully use the skills of the protagonist. Europe fights with white weapons, but can also launch magical distance attacks. As she progresses, she gains numerous improvements (increasing her combat potential and providing access to previously blocked locations) and armour, which she can change "on the fly", gaining additional powers. Collectibles in the form of notes deserve a separate mention; in return, two composers can lengthen the bars of life and magical power of the protagonist, as well as treat us with melodies maintained at 432 Hz. It has atmospheric, dark graphics made in pixel art technique. The game is accompanied by a soundtrack composed by such celebrities as Michiru Yamane, Manami Matsumae (Castlevania and Mega Man series) and Norihiko Hibino (Metal Gear Solid series).

Clunky Hero Chaosmonger Studio [top]

Release Date: Mar This is a story-driven, platformer metroidvania game, with a touch of RPG and tons of humor. Made for gamers who’d love a platformer with a strong storyline, where you can talk with characters, solve side quests, find and buy items, change weapons and wearables, with great hand-drawn-looking backgrounds... All of that presented in a very comical way. The developers like to think of it as a blend between the gameplay of Hollow Knight, with the humor and parodist elements of a card game like Munchkin. In a village far, far away, a dull peasant named Rufus was living an ordinary life. The boss of the house was his wife, Brunilde, a boisterously smart and funny woman that you wouldn’t exactly call “pretty”. Life was nice and happy in the village, until one day, awakened by some magical mistake, the Evil One started to spread his minions around town, performing hideous acts against the people. The worst of which was the kidnapping of Brunilde. She was torn from Rufus’ hands and put in a prison at the Evil One’s castle. Transformed into a blondie duck-faced doll girl, she now spends all her time staring at herself in a small handheld mirror. Determined to win her back, Rufus made a helmet out of a bucket and picked a broom as a weapon.

One day they dug too deep and unleashed the Gloomdark Hordes, an army of trolls and monstrous creatures. Once the dwarves realized that trolls turned to stone in the sunlight, they fled far from the mountain and found refuge on the sunny Hills of Brekka. Centuries passed and, over time, the dwarves forgot their traditions and abandoned craftsmanship and innovation in favor of warring and raiding. History became myth, and myth became bedtime stories. But whispers of a long forgotten darkness echo throughout the valley of the great mountain. It can be heard in the Snoring Forest, by those who dare to enter.

This is an isometric, story-driven, action-RPG with an expansive, interconnected map and quest system. Battle nightmarish creatures, customize your abilities, and collect unique items and equipment. In order to beat the game, you’ll have to infiltrate the massive lairs of the five demon lords, and take on the apocalyptic boss battles at their centers. It's a game about coming of age, cosmic horror, and true love. The player takes control of John as his adventure's lead him through an hour by hour experience of what may be everyone's last night on Earth. He will encounter unearthly evils, Demon lords, afflicted townsfolk, and high school bullies... All nested in a larger than life fantasy that brings ultimate evil to a neighborhood near you. The main quest in Kingdom Of Night involves defeating the Five Demon Generals and gaining access to Baphomet's fortress, Leviathan. After the first introductory chapter of the game, which we call Midnight, the entire map of Watford opens up for the player to explore, and the Five Demon Generals can be defeated in any order. When starting the game, you can choose from 1 of 9 classes. The class you choose decides your base play style, while the skill trees allow for further customization. Rather than implementing a balance on all classes, each class is weighted differently providing each with a unique play-style. Building Your Character - Each class has a skill tree split into 3 branches. Each branch contains 10 talents. As you level up, you are allotted points to spend into any of the the three branches of your class. Once you have chosen your first talent in a branch you are locked into that specific branch until level 10. When you have reached level 10, you are free to cross over into another branch, allowing you to fully customize your play-style. You can get new equipment in a number of ways: via random drops with multi-tiered loot tables and variable drop rates, quest rewards, and by finding items hidden throughout the town. Items range from totally Common to completely Unique. The items you collect provide an extra dimension to character stat development and have special abilities that will make you even more powerful.

Nighthawks: The Vampire RPG Quarter To Thirteen / Wadjet Eye Games [top]

Release Date: Feb Three months ago, you died. And in that moment you were reborn as something new. A monster. A predator. Not a creature of the night, but one of its masters. Unfortunately, things aren't simple as they used to be. Vampires have finally been exposed, and though your existence is tolerated, your new nature is not. You came to the City hoping for a new start, but found only suspicion and starvation. Now you stare at the ceiling of your cheap hotel room as a penniless outcast, suckling on rats and destined to wither away. But every new era brings new opportunities, and in the political chaos of a world gone mad, even an outcast may rise. An outcast can change everything. This is the story of how you rose. This is the brand new urban fantasy RPG from creator of The Blackwell Legacy, Unavowed, Technobabylon and writer/designer Richard Cobbett (Sunless Sea/Sunless Skies, The Long Journey Home). The initial concept for the game came when working on Sunless Skies and dreaming of seeing that calibre of interactive fiction merged with the atmosphere of some of his favourite urban-fantasy books and games, in particular 2004's Vampire: The Masquerade: Bloodlines... and then deciding he wanted to play that new game far too much to just leave the idea sitting in the mental "What If?" folder. Welcome to the mean streets of a city grudgingly trying to show that humans and vampires can live together, despite the cynicism and conspiracies raging on both sides. It's a place of bleak horror and dark humour, filled with monsters who don't all have fangs and a thirst for blood, and featuring new stories down every dark alley. What part will you play, and how will you turn a newly awakened world to your advantage. This is a mix of story-driven RPG and undead life-simulation, where every decision you make is another move in your chess game against the world. Invest your time into learning new skills or honing your fighting style as you uncover the city's mysteries and venture deep into its darkest secrets. Gather fellow outcasts to your side, binding them with favours and choosing when to cash in. Manage your eternal thirst, legitimately, or balancing the risks of being caught stalking unwary victims and working the black markets. And of course, what would a vampire be without a few secret powers? Choose from a range of dark Gifts, including Corpse-Talking, Tenebraean Form and Mesmerise. Be careful to hide all evidence of them from the authorites, while keeping them ready as your ace in the hole. Embrace your vampire side, sprinkle a little cinnamon in your blood to handle that pesky iron aftertaste, and get ready to live the nocturnal nine-to-five. Structurally, think a freeform RPG core, with stories branching off it - some funny, some tragic, some horrific - where your decisions are always bleeding together. Get caught lying too often and your untrustworthy reputation will follow you around, while raising suspicion will draw the attention of first mortal, and then darker authorities. Do you, for instance, break a window and hurriedly search a crime scene while the alarms wail, pick the lock and explore at your leisure, or use vampire powers to impersonate the security guard and walk right in? The choice is yours, and all part of learning the beat of the city, developing new skills, and building up favours and contacts to help seize the day by the throat.
