    Incline The Two People Who Will Make The Ultimate Ideal Huge Rpgs (Real-Time Action and Turn-Based) are...

    ...Hidetaka Miyazaki (for the real-time action based one) and Swen Vincke (for the turn-based one) Hidetaka Miyazaki is the mastermind who birthed Souls-Like genre as a whole with Demons' Souls in 2009, and went on to direct Dark Souls, Bloodborne, Dark Souls 3, Sekiro, and most recently Elden...

    Anime SAND-LAND - new Action RPG based on Akira Toriyama's manga, you can pilot tanks and mechs

    RIP Sweet Prince. The game looks breddy sweet tho: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1979440/SAND_LAND/ I'm most excited for the environment and the fact you can pilot a variety of vehicles, including giant robotto.

    Enderal developers working on new game

    Apparently the Enderal developers have been working on a new game on the unreal engine? Does anyone here know any more specific info? Like whether it'll be an actual open world RPG or what? Was hard for me to find any info about it. They did release two other games on steam but those aren't...

    Indie Duel Corp -- 3D pixel art Souls-like action RPG -- coming to Early Access in 2023

    Personally I have a deep distaste for Dark Souls and the entire Souls-like genre, which after trying it, this clearly qualifies. But I realize I'm in the minority there, so maybe some of you will be interested. There is an open alpha going on right now that lasts until April 10th, so you can...

    Indie The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing: Final Cut

    EDIT: unfortunately the game turns to shit in later chapters Didn't find a thread for this one, so here is one. Basically I woke up January 1 with a massive action RPG craving, and in the last months I've chewed through Warhammer 40K: Inquisitor Martyr, Last Epoch and Wolcen. This one is 90%...

    Action rpg's with good exploration

    Upon playing Diablo 3 I came to the realization of something major that was missing compared to Grim Dawn. Grim Dawn's act 1 had me explore in joy as I was actively looking for secrets and the level design rewarded said exploration. Same thing why I like dragon dogma/outward compared to stuff...

    Incline No More Puzzles

    I think puzzles in games need to go away. Thinking especially in action rpgs and particularly open world action rpgs. They either ruin pacing, and are merely annoying and boring, delay rewards and interesting progress too much, or are too easy and ruin immersion. Locks on doors that take...

    From Software Little Witch Nobeta - Magic-based action RPG with soulslike elements.

    The Little Witch Nobeta is a 3D action shooting game. Players will explore ancient, unknown castles and use different magic elements to fight against the soul! The game uses a comfortable Japanese art style, but the battles are quite challenging despite its cute looks. Underestimating your foes...

    Check out my roguelite first-person dungeon crawler!

    Hee hoo! I'm Ithiro, and for over a year I've been working on this passion project of mine together with my best friends: Devil Spire. It's a hardcore first-person pseudo-3D roguelite action RPG dungeon crawler stylized after retro PC games, inspired by classics like King's Field and Heretic...

    Elder Scrolls Todd Howard Appreciation Thread

    I used to dislike Bethesda after Oblivion and Fo3, but now that triple-A RPG industry is in the gutter, Todd seems like the only savior. You all know the history. Bioware sold out to EA and immediately went gay, each of their new games after DAO turned out to be worse than the previous one...

    (Help Wanted) Darkstone: Evil Reigns Master Thread (Help, Patching and Modding)

    Greetings all, I've recently started playing Darkstone (technically for the second time, but only now "properly") and I'm quite enjoying it. I've seen it mentioned in passing on here several times as an obscure game and I figured I try and promote some interest in it. Why the Workshop? Well...

    Playing Two Worlds for the first time

    Sooo… I was looking for some light game to make a break from more “serious” cRPGs (Wizards and Warriors, Amberstar), something more action-oriented. I have noticed that near Christmas I had bought a few games on GOG (very cheaply), Two Worlds among them. So I have tried. And, well… I’m very...

    Anime DAEMON X MACHINA out now on PC/Steam

    So... Switch to PC port's out. Did anybody play it? Impressions? Somehow, that game reminded me of Slave Zero. I miss that game.

    Vapourware Kinstrife - Historical Action RPG, M&B with Examina combat?

    Found an interesting looking game online. They seem to be really into Mount & Blade.
  19. Dragon Marked for Death: Action RPG made by Inti Creates

    http://www.dragonmfd.com/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6k8ZOljVFKU Its being made by the Megaman Zero and ZX series guys which is making me hopeful. From what I have gathered, this game was originally a 3DS game and being moved over to the switch.

    [Salvage] - Started working on a sidescrolling Action RPG

    Hi there. Just a short while ago, I started with a new game project. Looking at the gameplay, it's inspired mainly by Dragon's Crown. Running from left to right, smacking monsters, collecting loot, gaining experience and such. But on the other hand, I really like those big JRPGs with awesome...

    Nioh: Feudal Era Dark Souls

    http://nichegamer.com/2016/03/behind-closed-doors-gameplay-nioh-revealed/ ...from the guys who made Ninja Gaiden, Dead or Alive, and Metroid: Other M! Look at the lock-on, the UI, it's not even subtle. I don't think any Dark Souls clone is subtle, but yeesh. Personally, I don't think Team Ninja...
