    On my iPhone at the moment: Shin Megami Tensei, Silversword (Bard's Tale clone), Undercroft, Wizardry Labyrinth of Lost Souls, Sorcerer (Wizardry clone) and Oubliette. The first three Bard's Tale games are on iPhone as well, but you have to download that lame ass 2.7gb Action RPG with it. Inxile, I'm disappoint.

    And yes, I did spend far longer than I should have looking for these games. I can only say SMT and Silversword are any good, though. I haven't put much time into the others.

    - - - -

    Not sure what inxile is planning, I'm just glad they're churning out RPGs at all. Real ones anyway, let's hope that the new game isn't called The Bard's Tale II.

    Joking apart, sequel to Arcanum with Cain/Boyarsky/Anderson as guest Leads would be absolutely awesome. Unfortunately, it's almost impossible.

    Ignore CCP and Activision and just make it a spiritual successor.

    I thought InXile's next RPS is going to be Torment. Why do they want to work on two projects simultaneously? Isn't InXile a small studio with incompetent developers insufficient manpower?

    I'm not much of a blobber fan, so I would actually be down with an isometric Bard's Tale.

    Though I hope this time, they prioritize implementing solid core systems over having half a dozen skills for the singular purpose of opening loot containers.

    isometric turn-based Bard's Tale in a Sci-Fi/Steampunk/Cyberpunk setting would be great

    Mr Fargo is good at naming things, I think could come up with an original title.

    The 8 Bit Weapon guy (see here) told me that Brian Fargo recently spoke to him about Bard's Tale. Draw your own conclusions. :M

    That doesn't exactly leave many conclusions to draw. Only one, in fact.

    But is it going to be isometric (for the lose) or first person (for the win)?

    Heh, keep in mind that I don't know what exactly he meant by "recently". These were his exact words:

    Don't really wanna bug him about it.
