    Would have voted for Stygian and Sui Generis if given a chance. Passed on both Fallen Gods and Colony Ship RPG because I don't think they will be coming out in 2017 despite being excited for them of course. Granted I doubt Whalenought Studios can deliver two sizeable games in one year but am pretty sure I will enjoy one of them this year.

    Provided we don't see a lot of delays it seems like 2017 will be a much better year for gaming then the 2 that preceded it. Yeah, yeah, I know 2015 had AoD and Underail but both those just came out towards the end of an otherwise forgettable year.

    The sad thing is, three of the four titles I am most looking forward to on this list might not even get finished.

    Although truthfully the one project I anticipate to hear increasing information about this year is Sword & Sorcery: Sovereign

    The Codex opinion about those games will probably be something along the lines of "they're shit". :obviously:
