Indie development studio Cryptic Comet are, in some ways, the apple of RPS’s eye. Seeking a return to the good old days of PC turn-based strategy, they created both Armageddon Empires and Solium Infernum, two of the best indie games of the last few years, and our write-up of a single Solium Infernum game is my favourite feature RPS has ever published.

Imagine my thrill, then, at hearing a few weeks ago that they’d made a beta version of their next game- a shorter, cheaper, dedicated single player project by the name of Six Gun Saga- available to all pre-order customers. I’ve personally overseen the deaths of some fifty cowpokes and greenhorns in this game of tough cowboys and tougher decisions, and have assembled some impressions after the jump.

Six Gun Saga Pre-Orderer Posse Access

By Jim Rossignol on May 30th, 2011.


Vic Davis, he of Armageddon Empires and Solium Infernum fame, has revealed that his latest game, a strategic cowboy cardgame called Six Gun Saga, is now available to folks who want to get in on the whole pre-order for early access sort of deal. We’ve just got our hands on the game and – as Kieron was quick to point out – it’s one of those games where we’re going to need to take our time. We even need to read the manual. Anyway, expect some more thoughts on it soon, and in the meantime trip back into the recent past to find Vic explaining the game for us.

Shooting The Shit: Six Gun Saga Interview

By Kieron Gillen on September 22nd, 2010.

Where do you get your character ideas from?

When RPS’ favourite indie strategy developer announces he’s making a new game, our response is somewhat predictable. First, we write about it. Secondly, we hang on Vic Davis’ leg mewling like sick children until he gives us an interview, revealing everything that we want to know about the aforementioned game. This is the latter. The game is Six Gun Saga, and on past form and what Vic reveals here, it’s sounding very exciting…

On A Pale Horse: Six Gun Saga Revealed

By Kieron Gillen on September 10th, 2010.

Late breaking news is that Cryptic Comet, creators of Armageddon Empires and Solium Infernum, have just announced their new project. It’s Six Gun Saga , a primarily single-player game which span off his continuing attempts to make an old-west Rogue-like. “It will remind you of some games like Race For the Galaxy, Dominion and of course Poker,” says Vic Davis. The mention of Dominions is splendid, as I’ve been hoping someone would draw some more inspiration from the German-style card game. The first shot is above – click through for the full size one – and will hopefully be out in a couple of months. “If you have played any of my previous games you’ll find a lot that is familiar and hopefully that feeling that you can’t always quite do what you want and a bunch of hard choices,” he adds. Phew.

Worth reading the full, short post for all the details including saying the rogue-like is still in development, along with a Solium Infernum mini-expansion. And perhaps predictably, we’ve hit up Vic for more details. You’ll know when we know.
