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…

Zombasite: Orc Schism expansion announced

The one-man action-RPG army that is Steven Peeler of Soldak Entertainment has announced the first expansion for Zombasite [official site], the action-RPG set in a fantasy zombie apocalypse. Named Orc Schism, it'll introduce three monstrous factions of Orcs as well as a Bard class for folks who want to sing about the end of the world as we know it. It's due some time this…

Soldak Planning Zombasite Expansion And New Game

Soldak make interesting games, such as Din's Curse, Depths of Peril and Zombasite [official site]. These are action-RPGs that are doing more than hack and slash - Zombasite, the most recent, is set in a world gradually being consumed by a zombie virus, in which your decisions can affect the spread of the undead threat. It launched back in August and now developer Steven Peeler…

Action-RrgurgrrrPG: Soldak Release Zombasite

Teeny tiny studio Soldak make games with big dreams, action-RPGs like Din's Curse and Depths of Peril with dynamic worlds full of living parts reacting to each other. Their latest is Zombasite [official site] and yeah, there are zombies but this isn't another zombie game - it's another Soldak game, with zombies. After ten months in early access, Zombasite properly launched last night. It has…

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…

New Drox Operative: Invasion Of The Ancients Trailers

Drox Operative is a space-set action RPG in which the world around you changes whether you interact with it or not. You fly about, destroying spaceships and using the items they drop to tweak and level your own ship. As you meet new civilizations, they might ask you to help them expand or destroy their neighbour, and your action or inaction will help shape the…

OAP Attack: Drox Operative – Invasion Of The Ancients

Drox Operative continued Soldak's tradition of genre-expanding ARPGs. Following on from Depths of Peril and Din's Curse, it takes the joy of looting and levelling up stats, and twins it with a dynamic world in which wars and alliances form, goods are traded, and entire civilisations can be destroyed. Along with Space Rangers 2, Drox makes me wonder whether I really need to wait for…

Mods And Droxers: Drox Operative SDK Released

Every single person who has ever complained about ARPGs being pinata-popping clickfests should play Drox Operative, or indeed any of Soldak's previous explorations of the genre. A dynamic world, diplomacy, warfare and randomised quests all combine to make a game that avoids the tedium of gathering loot for loot's sake. A few days ago, Soldak released an SDK for the game, containing documentation, examples and…

Feature: Action (role playing game) with consequences

Drox Operative review

Twas the day before week’s end, when all throughout space, Dark troubles were stirring, a deadly arms race! The void filled with beacons, transmissions and prayers, In hopes a Drox Operative soon would be there. I've been exploring space sectors in Soldak's latest ARPG. Here's wot I think.

Fully Operational: Drox Operative Is Out Now

Drox Operative, which comes from the same pedigree as Din's Curse and Depths of Peril, is out of beta and available for purchase. Failing to find a few days to spend with the beta is probably my biggest regret of the year so I plan to remedy that by having a Droxy December. From what little I have played, I feel comfortable with the 'Space…

Space Strangers: Drox Operative Demo

Din's Curse and Depths of Peril are my favourite ARPGs. When John wrote about the absolutely lovely Torchlight 2, among all the praise he had this to say: "It really makes no efforts to take the genre anywhere new." It's easy to come to the conclusion that there is nowhere new for the genre to go, but Soldak are pioneers, exploring the possibilities of loot,…

Space Peril: Drox Operative Now In Beta

Depths of Peril and Din's Curse are wonderful games that anyone interested in RPGs would be very wise to spend some time with. For why that is, look here and here. They're among the few non-ascii games to capture most of the reasons that I adore roguelikes with such a burning passion and they contain worlds of consequence and reaction that should make morality sliders…

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…

Casually Slashing: Kivi’s Underworld Demo

We've been following streamlined hack-n-slash Kivi's Underworld since it was first announced, through into beta, and then... Well, like the brain-free wrongminds we so often are, we forgot to tell you when it launched its demo. Fortunately we're making up for all that now, as a revised demo has been released, and we're posting about it right now.

Kivi’s Underworld Beta

Kivi's Underworld, the new hack 'n' slash from the Depths of Peril chaps, has released an open beta. They've asked for any constructive or buggish feedback from playing this to be posted on their forums. Quite a lot of feedback has already turned up, so you might want to take care you're not repeating other people! Alternatively, you might just want a taste of what…
