Serpent in the Staglands - "The vision for Serpent in the Staglands is a mix of the addictive build customization of ARPGs and party control and role-playing elements of games like Baldur's Gate and Darklands. A throwback to cRPGs of the past with fresh new role playing designs and combat mechanics."


(definitely looks a lot like BG and Darklands. I've played their mobile title - Island of Bxnes and it was quite nice.)
Added to RPGs.

I didn't even know about Dukes of War. Too bad about it being cancelled, it looked like a nice remake of Fantasy General (I can't imagine they didn't mention it as an inspiration; even the buttons look similar).

"Double Fine presents"? That doesn't bode well. :P On a more serious note, looks interesting but I'm gonna wait and see.

Aren't DF a publisher now though? Can't they just publish this game themselves if they like it so much?
