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.
