Din’s Legacy is an RPG about mutated orcs having a terrible time

Mutation is an under-explored idea in games, isn't it? I know I'm inviting a flood of comments about games that do play with the idea. Those are all welcome - yup, The Binding of Issac and Nuclear Throne are both fab - but I'm struggling to think of anything that's dealt with the long term consequences of physically evolving a body in different and potentially…

Feature: New ARPG from Depths of Peril chaps

Early Access Impressions: Soldak’s Zombasite

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.…

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…

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…

Wot I Think – Din’s Curse: Demon War

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…

Dinner Bells – Din’s Curse: Demon War Out

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…

The Din Crowd: Din’s Curse New Demo

News of Torchlight II reminds me that I meant to post about the new version of the Din's Curse demo that was released a week or so back. If you imagine a line whose two poles are labelled "Mainstream!" and "Indie!", then Diablo III would be off to the left, Torchlight would be near the middle while Din's Curse would be way over on the…

The Din Crowd: Din’s Curse Demo

I've been meaning to play my preview code of this for a while, but have been pre-empted by its demo release. Since it's the new game by Soldak - behind the ever-brilliant Depths Of Peril - I have high hopes for its Action-RPG multiplayer-includingness. It seems to be built on the ideological chassis of Depths of Peril's dynamic approach, with 141 class combinations and a…
