Early Access Impressions: Soldak’s Zombasite

[official site], a living-ish world action RPG from the people behind Depths of Peril, has been in early access for a little while now, so I thought I’d take a look. Even though I just can’t shake the suspicion that it was supposed to be called ‘Zombacide.”

Have You Played… Din’s Curse?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.

I’m not sure this place is worth saving. The townspeople are complaining about roaches in their food supplies, it never seems to stop raining and a couple of local idiots need a helping hand having wandered into the dungeon to grab some loot. I’d abandon the place if it weren’t for the big ghostly fella who’s keeping an eye on me. He’s Din. I’m a reluctant hero. This is Din’s Curse, my favourite action RPG.

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 failed a particular quest and you’ll have to live with the consequences

Zombasite [official site] is the latest game from the studio and it’s in Early Access now. I was excited to play but first impressions aren’t entirely positive.

The 50 Best RPG On PC

An entirely objective ranking of the 50 best PC RPGs ever released. Covering the entire history of computer role-playing games is a daunting task and attempting to place the best games in such a broad genre in any kind of order is even more daunting. Thankfully, we are equal to all tasks and below, you will find the best fifty PC RPGs of all time.

ZRPG: Soldak’s Date With The Dead

Details are scarce at the moment but Soldak have released the first details about their next game, which will see the developer return to the world of Depths of Peril and Din’s Curse. As the headline suggests, the game will involve zombies. Lots of the rotters bringing about the collapse of civilisation, as they so often do. When the undead manage to infect even the most imaginative of indie developers, the epidemic has surely reached crisis point but I’d be surprised if Soldak didn’t come up with an intriguing treatment. Details below.

Wot I Think – Din’s Curse: Demon War

Coincidentally, Elite Pilfer Clan Leprechaun is what I call my girlfriend.

Indie action RPG Din’s Curse is often referred to by Kieron as one of the games that got away- an acclaimed, interesting indie title that RPS never found the time to review. UNTIL TODAY. Following the release of the recent expansion, I’ve been spending quite a lot of time with this beauty, and am excited to present Wot I Think.

So, you’re a hero. A tall combine harvester of a man, with a unique knack for rolling forward and crushing and scything everything in your path, and you’re on a quest to rescue a lady, kill some monstrous boss monster and save a town. This tireless plot has been the set-up for a thousand fantasy videogames.

Now, imagine if you could fail at all this. Imagine if the lady could die, the monstrous boss monster could beat a retreat, and the town relying on you could, ultimately, be laid to waste. Imagine if everything mattered. That’s Din’s Curse.

Dinner Bells – Din’s Curse: Demon War Out

Until I was 12 I pronounced dungeon 'dungy-own' and nobody stopped me :(

Din’s Curse, Torchlight’s seedier, even-more-indie counterpart when it comes to capitalising on the fact that Blizzard have decided to develop Diablo 3 using only their left hands (my personal guess), has just received an expansion. In Din’s Curse: Demon War begins with the demon city of Kravel being invaded by crazed zombies. You’d think that would be a good thing, wouldn’t you? No! No! You’d be wrong. This causes the demons to go on a retaliatory rampage which it’s up to you to stop. Expect demons, a new Demon Hunter class, lots more quests and, by the sounds of things, a more dynamic game- NPCs now interact with the world more, and there are many more “world modifiers”. Hmm. Last year’s Din’s Curse demo is still up on their site and well worth checking out, and you can buy both the game and the expansion here with a 30 day money-back guarantee. Some guy’s footage of Din’s Curse follows. Is it any more professional if I tell you his name is viper34j2004? Probably not.
