    We collected all the turn-based non-anime blobbers in the other thread, so now it is time for a Codex vote. The real-time blobbers and the tactical combat blobbers will receive separate vote threads.

    Blobber definition:
    For those not familiar with the term, blobbers are party-based RPG's (usually with 1st person view) where all characters move and fight "as a blob" (no separate tactical movements for each character).

    Here is the complete list with links:

    7 Mages (2016)
    Ancients 1 (1991)
    Ancients 2 (1994)
    Antares (1991, Amiga)
    Bard's Tale Trilogy (1985, 1988, 1990, remake 2018)
    Coldfire Keep (2014, looks interesting)
    Conglomerate 451 (Early Access)
    Dark Spire (2008, NDS)
    Descend (2011, iOS)
    Devil Whiskey (2003)
    Don't Go Alone (1989)

    One of the main reasons for this vote is to find hidden gems that you haven't tried yet. Enjoy!

    LIES. You have Dark Spire and Elminage: Gothic.
    Well, I mean it is debatable what is anime and what isn't. You should've had that discussion before dismissing those game, because at the moment we don't truly understand what anime is. It seems to me what you had you favourites and decided to remove their competition by using some made up reason, just like they did in moscow elections.

    I think most of us can tell anime lollies apart from non-anime graphics. And we had that discussion in the thread linked above.

    There is nothing anime about Dark Spire and there are no weaboo lollies in Elminage Gothic either.

    Are they in Wizardry Empire? Elminage and it are basically the same game, no?

    Why no Demise? And, uh, shouldn't a poll have a restriced number of options?

    Sorry but I don't see many western blobbers that should be on this kind of list: Dungeon Master, Eye of the Beholder, Black Crypt, Captive, Lands of Lore, etc.

    What about blobbers where you have a choice between anime and nonanime portraits like Stranger Sword City?
    Please remove the disciminatory rule of no anime style.

    We actually looked at Stranger of Sword City and saw that both styles are anime.

    Operencia is missing. Also does "Bard's Tale Trilogy, Remaster 2018" means Bard's Tale IV?

    Props for the thread.

    Operencia comes out next year and isn't even early access. Bard's Tale 4 is in the list of partial blobbers with non-blobber tactical combat - together with Uukrul, Goldbox games, RoA and others.

    Operencia was actually in the list until somebody in the other thread complained that it isn't out yet. Even on the Codex you find Fake News.

    I've included it in the poll now.
