“What ever became of…?” I’ll often wonder in this garbage brain filled with jumbled memories of thousands of games. Today: what ever became of A Crimson Searchlight? A Blade Runner-y detective interrogating suspected artificial humans and searching their homes for evidence sounded grand. The answer: not much, as its page was last updated in January 2014. However!
This led me to discover Gloomwood [official site], an upcoming roguelikelike first-person explore ’em up with a splash of combat and slug of mystery. Created by a Searchlighter, it’s set in a procedurally-generated Victorian-ish city filled with masked people who live out different roles.
