Slow stabber Immortal Planet is out now

I wrote about isometric action-RPG Immortal Planet [official site] two months ago when a release date was announced: based on early gameplay footage I liked what I saw, but I wasn’t sure about the combat, which looked repetitive. Well it’s just come out for real now, and the launch trailer suggests the swordplay might be more varied than I first thought.

It’s a ‘Souls-like’ (drink) game based on slow-paced melee combat. You’re not going to rush in whirling your sword around your head and hope for the best: you have to dodge and block enemy attacks and manage your rapidly-depleting stamina bar, as well as strike when enemies are tired. I like the aesthetic, and it’s from the creator of turn-based stealth hack-and-slash Ronin, which was rather good.

I’m quite excited about Immortal Planet [official site]. It’s from the same Polish developer as Ronin, a turn-based stealth hack-and-slash, which I played a bit of and really enjoyed (and I wasn’t alone – Marsh liked it too).

The new game is a real-time isometric action-RPG that creator Tomasz Wacławek describes as ‘Souls-like’. You’re not going to be able to go in and button mash because the focus is on slow-paced, precise combat, where not getting hit is as important and landing a strike.

We now know when it’s coming out – some time in July – and there’s a new four-minute gameplay video with commentary to enjoy.

Ronin creator reveals tiring soulslike Immortal Planet

The maker of Ronin, the stylish cyberninja turn-based stab-o-platformer which Marsh dug during early access, has announced his next game. Immortal Planet [official site] is also big on patience and careful striking, only this time within a real-time isometric action-RPG. Tomasz Wacławek cites the Souls games as inspirations then takes a tangent of obsessing over stamina, making it a key resource to manage and exploit. The game looks quite pretty and all. Immortal Planet’s due later this for year but, for now, check out the first trailer: Read the rest of this entry »
