Complete weapon and equipment system, powerful magic system and various ways to use magic scrolls. Welcome to this Japanese open world exploration RPG turn-based game!

In addition to the nine characters who join the main team, hundreds of unique NPCs will also appear.Unintended discoveries of treasures can significantly strengthen a character, instead of the traditional upgrade system. The areas of the game are left free to explore from the start.

The combat system highlights the differences in resistance to the six types of magic: wind, fire, lightning, ice, light, and darkness. Different demons have different resistances to these six types of magic. The resistance of different demons to spells in the game cannot be directly observed.The various maps in the game are not marked with difficulty levels, while this could be done, the development team felt that it would ruin the authenticity of the game. After all, life is like a box of chocolates; you never know what the next piece will taste like. Furthermore, the weapons that characters from different professions can equip are different, and the vast majority of them have additional effects.

What are you waiting for? Come on a journey through this wonderfully magical fantasy world!

Geneforge 1 - Mutagen

Geneforge 1 - Mutagen

To say I’ve been waiting a long time for this one is an understatement. And I haven’t even been waiting as long as some other people; from what I remember seeing on the forums, I’m pretty sure this remake has been teased to some extent since the original release of Geneforge 5. But it’s here now, and even if it isn’t everything it could have been, it’s a very worthy remake that, for all but the most nostalgic players, pretty much entirely replaces the original.

For anyone who isn’t familiar with Geneforge, I’d best describe it as if Shin Megami Tensei was a CRPG in a traditional fantasy setting. You build up your character with skill points gained by leveling up and expand your party by creating monsters with different abilities. As you explore the world and uncover more of the plot, you will eventually have to make a decision on which faction you want to support, which ones you want to oppose, and decide the fate of the world. There’s never a right answer and rarely a wrong one, these games don’t just settle for a “good or evil” alignment system; who you side with is entirely down to your own roleplaying or moral principles.

It’s difficult to put in words just how good this is. I’ve been a long time fan of Vogel’s games, since purchasing Avernum 6 soon after getting a Steam account. I’ve played all the series: Avernum, Geneforge, Avadon, and the newer Queen’s Wish. All of the series have some things in common (you can side with different factions, around four different character builds to choose from, and a lot of recycled graphics and sounds) but the Geneforge series overall is the one I’ve made the least progress with. I’ve touched at least the 3rd, 4th, and 5th games of the series and manage to get “stuck” about half way through. I didn’t have this issue with the Avernum and Avadon series. I was hoping a remake of a game in the series would address the difficulty spike apparent in the older titles, and it seems to have at this point. I’ve sunk some decent time in to this (on normal difficulty) and have had to rethink some spots but haven’t come across any game breaking difficulty. Of course, you can make the game as hard as you want with the difficulty controls. So far, the updated graphics and sounds along with a friendlier UI make this Vogel’s best effort to date. It’s a relief, too, as I thought The Queen’s Wish was a step back in quality (some really questionable decisions regarding how clearing dungeons are concerned, awkward art assets that don’t all fit together). My only MINOR gripe with the game is how the inventory works. You have your main pack then a junk bag. If you put something in the junk bag, you can’t take it out until you get to town. What?? Not sure the rationale behind it, but it’s not a deal breaker. Overall, I’d put this on par, if not better, than the remake of Avernum: Ruined World. I’m looking forward to any other remasters that come, but my true hope is that Jeff will take this inspiration to make another classic in the vein of Avernum 6. Excellent job to Jeff on this perfect remake!

A game more than worth it’s money

I’ve owned overfall since it has released in early access and it hooked me straight away, Be under no illusions, the game is tough, You will die and you will have to start over, this is a rogue-like after all, but a very rewarding one at that.

With little introdution you are thrown into a world full of fantasy and myth, rich in different stories. On every island you go to you will encounter a little bit of a story, sometimes just a few lines of dialogue, sometimes a whole murder mystery. Most of these encounters are little self-contained stories, sometimes funny, sometimes serious. And often ending in a fight. What’s even better, many of them will only unfold the second, third or even fifth time you encounter them, as with playing other characters, your choices and options change.

Overfall is a fantasy turn-based rpg filled with tons of lite questing as you forge your own destiny by leading two heroes on a path to unite a single race of your choice torn by faction and conflict. Here are some of its most prominent features to give you the gist of it:


*High replay value due to ton of unlockables from Classes, to Companions, to Trinkets, to Weapons, to new Skills/Spells.

*Neat turn-based battle featuring the usage of a 3 step action-point system consisting of Movement (Step 1), Utility (Step 2), and Attack (Step 3). This allows tons of combo and synergy between classes and companions!

Rathe: The Beginning

Rathe: The Beginning

ok sadly this game has only 1 plus point so far: the character creation. you can select your class, stats and it even has custom skins for each of the classes which is really nice and almost no game i know of offers this. this is also the main reason i gave this game a chance.

however i didnt play very far, the game is just not polished enough. 2 seconds into the game and the first bug came up:

if you walk too fast out of the room then first quest doesnt even start.

then there too many ghost doors and people. you can walk through them like they are not even there. or characters stand on walls inside some houses.

Zoria: Age of Shattering

Zoria: Age of Shattering


Zoria. Home. Mother of all her inhabitants. She provides her children with food to grow, shelter to rest in and also, the harsh lessons of life, so her offspring may learn to fight and protect her gifts to them.

But men, men wanted more.

Zoria’s finest sons and daughters: intelligent, resourceful… violent. Men turned her ores into sword and daggers, and her roots into vile concoctions of poison.

Men wanted more. They craved more land and more food. So they built their homes of stone and wood, driving out the wildlife of its woods and caves. And in those caves they found their instrument of defiance: zerrium.


Zoria’s Gameplay is a unique mix of action-adventure RPG and tactical management. Explore the beautiful lands of Zoria, from mountains to the ocean, towns and dungeons, follow the story or discover its secrets.

Your outpost is your base, by expanding it you get access to better facilities and the ability to influence more of the world around you while leveling your followers gives you the ability to explore deeper, further into the unknown.


All the adventures in the game are hand-crafted, with multiple paths and various options for exploration, depending on the setup of your party and their environment abilities. You can always revisit a dungeon with another party to see previously inaccessible places and finish all the side quests.


Adventures need to be planned out carefully, and supplies stocked accordingly. Without supplies, the team cannot restore their vital resources, making any dungeon that much more dangerous. Bringing enough supplies for the journey or upgrading your cooking skills to make better use of all the land has to offer, that’s a choice for everyone to make.


Zoria’s combat is a Tactical, Turn-based confrontation, designed around the special characteristics of each class, abilities, resistances, deadly ranged attacks or strong AOE defenses, healing and much more. But turn based doesn’t mean static, so choose your battlegrounds wisely, as any wandering creature or enemy that gets too close, might join in and ruin your best laid plans.


You can choose your party from eight different classes, each with a unique skill set both in combat and exploring the world. Magic, ranged attacks, shear power, blocks and stuns, bleed and poisons, magic resistances - all there to explore, use and upgrade.


Explore a rich, immersive and diverse world: beautifully crafted environments, featuring dense forests, haunting dungeons, golden deserts and many more.

An epic story driving your experience, with rich and expansive lore. Discover the hidden tales and stories that live on through the people of Zoria and your own companions;

Plan your moves or just enjoy the ride - a game experience suited both for players eager to just explore and adventure, as well as for those who want a challenging combat with a strong emphasis on strategic thinking and planning.

Easy to learn crafting system with dozens of unique potions, epic weapons and other curious recipes that can be found throughout the world.

Elaborate character management: class and character upgrade system, unique skills both in combat, and during exploration. A wide array of character builds for each class will allow you to approach an encounter in your own way.

Complex base management: build new facilities, upgrade buildings, manage resources and expand your base;

Divinity: Original Sin 2 - Definitive Edition

Divinity: Original Sin 2 - Definitive Edition

At the time of writing this I am at 353 hours played. My first play through of this game was clocked in around ~130 hours. This is with out doubt, one of the best video games I have ever played and for at least one of the characters had me experience one of my most cathartic moments in gaming.

Story: Takes place ~1,000 years after the first Divinity Original Sin game. I didn’t play the first and you don’t really need to to enjoy this game. You’ll pick up on some story things here and there if you read about it. You’re a Source (powerful magic) user and using source draws in the void (bad things) so you are sent to an island to ultimately die off. Story follows you through different areas in the game with different factions fighting that you can side with. Picking your character from a prebuilt gets you added story (one of the 6 listed below).

Waste Walkers

Waste Walkers

A surprisingly well excuted use of the RPG Maker engine to produce something more than the usual fare. Mechanics are about as would be predicted for the engine and genre, extended to include welcome survial elements (which I believe can be turned off? Wasn’t intrested in doing so myself but do recall seeing that).

The setting might be said to be like Fallout, but unlike Fallout which takes place many decades after an apocolyptic event, Waste Walkers places you in the role of a survivor shortly after whatever happened (it seems to be one of the mysteries of the game) happened. Resources are scarce and heavy enough to make you concerned and wish to create stashes around the city, but not so far as to panic. Combat is very challenging but not impossible, and the survival element is reinforced by some encounters consistantly costing more resources than they reward, making ‘fight or flight?’ an important question throughout the game.

Theres now literally no way to be lost in the game. The map you start off with has every single individual building marked with their names. Now you can go to wherever a quest tells you to.

Very cluttered, mostly readable. But you can definitely find anything for the most part.



After posting this review, i noticed the store page description of the game does it a very good job.
