    KotC 2 is looking amazing

    Copper dreams could be good, i trust these guys, bought sits just to support them.

    Disco elysium has all the makings of great vaporware.

    Barkley 2 is great vaporware.

    Expeditions could be good, if it doesnt get swallowed by SJWs.

    Encased looks like something that COULD be good, wasnt on my radar

    I want to know whos retarded enough to vote for wasteland 3 after wl2 and numanuma and bt4

    The rest i dont know much about or care at all, hopefully they are good. MRY may come through, he is a bro, but i really dont care for the kind of games he makes.

    I figure after Pathfinder and ATOM, Encased should be on more people's radars. The Russians have learned to make good RPGs.

    Wasteland 3 might be good, personally I'm waiting to see some gameplay footage.

    I didn't even play WL2 or BT4 tbh, but WL3 has Ziets as a lead designer which gives me hope.

    Upon further consideration, I've decided to add two additional games to the poll - Rhuantavan's Call of Saregnar and RatTower's Monomyth.

    Damn, there are only two on that list that I'm not looking forward to. 2019 is going to be a good year for RPGs.

    Wasteland 3 because lol inXile and System Shock 3 because lol Otherside Entertainment and Underworld Ascendant

    I voted for everything but:
    System Shock 3
    Monomyth
    Barkley 2: Revenge of Cuchulainn


    I backed Wasteland 3 at the lowest tier, I'm excited to see what they can do improve or mess up.

    Another game that could be in the list. Hopefully this isn't dead, even though I think it might be:
    Dungeons of Aledorn Release Date: TBA

    Ziets still has at least a good game in him, I actually trust him (the parts he wrote/designed for TToN are the only ones which are decent/good), but I think his potential will just be wasted by inXile and the game will be just as mediocre as their other games.
    I hope to be proven wrong ofc, but I don't think I will be. Hopefully he'll get hired at a better company and will make a good rpg some day, with a good team behind him.

    Feeling confident Wasteland 3 will have a better story than Pillars of Eternity and Deadfire.

    I think Fallen Gods will get finished eventually; not sure exactly when though. We've also made some progress on Strangelands, but that's an adventure.

    Infinitron Technically speaking, you're a ~Norse god trying to make your way back into ~Asgard. Consider yourself a fampyr heading toward biawacsgard.

    Probably only Druidstone & possibly Realms Beyond at the moment. Also interested in this game which the developers claim on the front page will (finally) be out in 2019: http://skullstonegame.com/

    The screenshots for the original KotC made my eyes bleed so never got into that despite the good reviews...so haven't really thought about KotC 2 yet.

    I'm not voting on anything yet, but Stygian, Colony Ship, Disco Elysium and Copper Dreams definitely have my attention. Hopefully most of the candidates actually come out this year.

    Good list, but does not include any roguelikes.
    Specifically, Caves of Qud. Also, seems like there will probably will be another version of Infra Arcana out this year.
