    Incline Making an 80s themed RPG

    What ideas do you have for an 80s based rpg? To quote Frank Lopez: "Chicas, champagne, flash." Turn based or real time? What about the morality system? Maybe you get to play as either a dutiful and honorable detective who prefers to arrest and apprehend criminals, or a more morally flexible and...

    Which RPGs play well on Steam Deck?

    With no keyboard, I assume anything third-person works and anything top-down is a nightmare. Early Fallouts would be playable with the touch screen, but I doubt you can make Gold Box D&D games function, since even if you get DOSBOX to run, you would have to rebind every single key to a...

    Why do RPGs, even indie ones, not make use of more immersive sim elements?

    It seems like only Larian actually bothers to have immersive sim elements, and even then larian doesn't utilize it all that much in most of their games yet. You'd think it's not that hard to implement being able to destroy walls, move objects, etc. especially if the game is a 2D rpg? Some...

    Games to challenge conceptions of character?

    What RPGs are there to challenge PCs concepts, convictions, stories, etc and seeing them change?' I'm more interested in mechanics and frameworks than just advice. I've played Pendragon and Dogs in the Vineyard a long time ago and they were great at this. What else is out there?

    Badur's Gate 3 vs WOTR

    Some discussion are already popping about it , and because neither of those games will ever be finished, now might be a good time as any to discuss this topic. In mind, it's somewhat interesting because they're a clear divide in the gameplay philosophy. Disclaimer : I'm only in act 1 of BG, so...
