Would have voted for Stygian and Sui Generis if given a chance. Passed on both Fallen Gods and Colony Ship RPG because I don't think they will be coming out in 2017 despite being excited for them of course. Granted I doubt Whalenought Studios can deliver two sizeable games in one year but am pretty sure I will enjoy one of them this year.

Provided we don't see a lot of delays it seems like 2017 will be a much better year for gaming then the 2 that preceded it. Yeah, yeah, I know 2015 had AoD and Underail but both those just came out towards the end of an otherwise forgettable year.

The sad thing is, three of the four titles I am most looking forward to on this list might not even get finished.

Although truthfully the one project I anticipate to hear increasing information about this year is Sword & Sorcery: Sovereign

Dat map gives me immediate 'lets roll a party and go on an adventure!' feels <3

If you're not excited about No Truce With the Furies and Battle Brothers you need to GET FUCKED.

What do you have against what seem to shape up as the two by far most interesting titles this year?
Nevermind.. (I was being :retarded:)

One perhaps interesting upcoming title, that I haven't seen getting any attention in Codex is Star Traders 2 RPG by Trese Brothers.
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tresebrothers/star-traders-2-rpg

Feel free to go ahead and do something about that:
