The RPG Scrollbars: Manual Override

I miss manuals and their kin. They're often still provided with games, I suppose; usually PDFs to explain how to play and to give jerks on forums something to insist you RTF if you dare complain that something isn't clear enough. I'm not really thinking of that side of things though, but the ones that felt like they were part of the overall experience. The…

Epic Lute: Brian Fargo On Bringing Back The Bard’s Tale

Having successfully brought Wasteland back to life with the help of 61,920 of its closest friends, Brian Fargo and inXile Entertainment are turning their attentions to another classic RPG - The Bard's Tale [official site]. Forget the appalling comedy vacuum from a few years ago, this is The Actual Bard's Tale IV, both a return to and modernisation of dungeon crawling with a few new…

Brian Fargo’s Eighties Disco: The Bard’s Tale IV

Brian Fargo and the inXile team's next project will be another revival of an Interplay oldie.

Fargo announced the game at PAX South, where…

We're talking about great games on the cheap for good causes. So far, more has…

Brian Fargo On InXile’s Darkest, Publisher-Driven Days

The future is looking very bright for Wasteland 2 and Torment: Tides of Numenera developer inXile. Very bright indeed. Two wildly successful Kickstarters and one nearly complete, maddeningly exciting game later, Brian Fargo and co have finally found their niche. Or rather, they've settled back into the comforting clockwork of an old wheelhouse, an old home. But the road to this point was hardly an…

Retro: Tales Of The Unknown: The Bard’s Tale

[The original version of this appeared in PC Gamer. There's been a handful of additions.] Maths was always our favourite lesson, for the simple reason we never did any Maths in it. There were always more obvious rebels for the teacher to whip into line than David Hyland, Simon Holmes and myself, crouched over our desks and using the class’ infinite supply of squared paper…
