Immortal Planet trailer shows off Souls-inspired action

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…

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.…

Humble Devolver Bundle: Not A Hero, Titan Souls & Talos

The games that fly under publisher Devolver Digital's banner are often funny, sometimes silly, and always quirky. Frantic shooter Not A Hero revels in its messy, hedonistic chaos; Dropsy tells the tale of sad, social misfitting clown; and The Talos Principle is a wonderful game about philosophy and mind-boggling puzzles, to name but a few. The Humble Devolver Bundle has them all and more and…

Turn-Based Cyberninja Action: Ronin Out Of Early Access

I dug the demo of turn-based stealth-o-swordfighter Ronin [official site], and the more-complete Steam Early Access version that Marsh prematurely evaluated sounded even better. It's a clever blend of real-time sneaking with gadgets then simultaneous turn-based sword combat when that goes tits-up, turning fights into careful ballet of thrown blades and dodged bullets. Playing it made me feel like the coolest cyberpunk assassin, which is…

Feature: Chop Logic

Premature Evaluation: Ronin

Each week Marsh Davies slices open Early Access like the soft belly of a hapless Yakuza goon and roots around inside for any stories he can find. This week he’s playing Ronin - a game about infiltrating 2D-cutaway buildings and dicing their occupants up via a sharp-as-hell turnbased combat system. “Tip: this is not Gunpoint,” says a little message on the screen. It’s not wrong.…

Stealthy Cybermurder: Ronin Demo

Ronin [official site] is a cool game about cool stealthy murders. It's a stealth 'em up about a futureninja taking down a megacorp, hiding in the shadows and striking unseen, then whipping out the ole cybersword and dancing around murdering everyone in simultaneous turn-based cybercombat once you get busted. Chuck Mark of the Ninja, half a cup of rain, Gunpoint, and a neon tube into…

Swordpoint: Turn-based Stealthjumpstabs In Ronin

The turn-based sneaking, leaping, climbing, stabbing, swinging, and sword-flinging of Ronin caught our eye last August with a free prototype, and my it's come a long way since then! A new trailer shows slick sequences of its cyberninja scaling buildings, smashing through windows, dodging bullets, and stabbing the heck out of cybermen. Tomasz Waclawek's game caught the keen eye of publishers Devolver Digital too, as…

Freeware Garden: Ronin

Looking for an excellent, stealthy murder simulator? Lucky you, then, for here's Ronin to cater to your every (virtual) killing whim; a game that's pure of heart and doesn't really bother with formalities. Or a plot. A game that simply wants to entertain you and help you hone those subtly tactical mouse and keyboard skills.
