Elf Concerns: Soldak’s Zombasite Is Available Now

Soldak are among my favourite developers. With Din's Curse, Drox Operative, and Depths of Peril they have three ARPGs that put the static worlds of their glossier genre-mates to shame. Quests are dynamic in a Soldak game and the world and its NPCs interact while you're looking the other way. Fail to follow up on objectives in good time and you might find that you've…

New Drox Operative: Invasion Of The Ancients Trailers

Drox Operative is a space-set action RPG in which the world around you changes whether you interact with it or not. You fly about, destroying spaceships and using the items they drop to tweak and level your own ship. As you meet new civilizations, they might ask you to help them expand or destroy their neighbour, and your action or inaction will help shape the…

OAP Attack: Drox Operative – Invasion Of The Ancients

Along with Space Rangers 2, Drox makes me wonder whether I really need to wait for…

Mods And Droxers: Drox Operative SDK Released

A dynamic world, diplomacy, warfare and randomised quests all combine to make a game that avoids the tedium of gathering loot for loot's sake. A few days ago, Soldak released an SDK for the game, containing documentation, examples and…

Fully Operational: Drox Operative Is Out Now

Drox Operative, which comes from the same pedigree as Din's Curse and Depths of Peril, is out of beta and available for purchase. Failing to find a few days to spend with the beta is probably my biggest regret of the year so I plan to remedy that by having a Droxy December. From what little I have played, I feel comfortable with the 'Space…

Space Strangers: Drox Operative Demo

Din's Curse and Depths of Peril are my favourite ARPGs. When John wrote about the absolutely lovely Torchlight 2, among all the praise he had this to say: "It really makes no efforts to take the genre anywhere new." It's easy to come to the conclusion that there is nowhere new for the genre to go, but Soldak are pioneers, exploring the possibilities of loot,…
