Post Games to watch/kickstarters
Derf was so kind to send me his list of games to watch, and I thought it was very interesting. So I figured I'd make a thread were people can post the games in development they are keeping an eye on.

Quite a few of the games I was looking out for are on Derf's list too so I'll just copy-paste his list here and highlight which ones I was interested in as well. :)

Takedown: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/355 ... al-shooter
Dead State: http://www.deadstate.doublebearproductions.com/
The Banner Saga: http://stoicstudio.com/forum/the-banner ... ctions.php
Tactical Intervention: http://ti.ogplanet.com/en/intro.og
CoH 2: http://www.companyofheroes.com/media/screenshots
The Afflicted: http://www.moddb.com/games/the-afflicted
Divinity Original Sin: http://www.divinityoriginalsin.com/features.php
Underrail: http://underrail.com/index.php?option=c ... &Itemid=55
Nuclear Union: http://www.nuclearunion.com/

Europa Universalis 4: http://www.escapistmagazine.com/article ... IV-Preview
Gnomoria: http://gnomoria.com/?page_id=15
Project Eternity: http://eternity.obsidian.net/
Foresaken Fortress: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/131 ... n-fortress
Prison Architect: http://www.introversion.co.uk/prisonarchitect/
Call to Arms: http://www.digitalmindsoft.eu/products/call-to-arms
Xenonauts: http://www.xenonauts.com/


I helped kickstart a few of these. Specifically Project Eternity, Forsaken Fortress, Dead State. Also (not on Derf's list):

Dead state, divinity, underrail and some more are quite interesting. Don't really care for the fps and tps games.

You should probably keep an eye out on Xenonauts more than anything else Peltz. :) It's another (spiritual) successor to the X-com games, with vehicles, more detailed base/personnel management and interception missions. Of course the game looks a little less shiny but that's not the most important thing for games like these.

Already a little old but extensive video demonstration

Chaos Chronicles

Trailer


Features

*Chaos Chronicles uses a turn-based fighting system (hexgrid) that will put a smile on the face of every fan of traditional RPGs:
*Lush graphics meet old-school feeling! Chaos Chronicles combines a lavish look with the dense atmosphere of the Dungeon Crawlers of old.
*Wanted: A new hero! A comprehensive character editor ensures that every player can build his very own hero.
*Travelling becomes retro-epic: A world map allows travelling like in good old times, as role playing games were still role playing games

I'm watching Project Godus as it's Peter Molyneux and another god sim.

I kinda gave up on Molyneux...he's just become an old man with nice ideas now, I haven't really liked any of his games since Dungeon Keeper. :( Even Black and White was kind of a letdown.

*kicks Ox across Europe* Do not slate B&W. B&W 2 yes, but not the original. Anyway yeah he disappointed me with B&W2 and the Fable series (1 was good but not what was promised) but he does good god sims so I will keep watching this one. Don't believe a word he says about it though ;)

Yeah, awesome news. :) Ironically it's one of the only big RPG kickstarters of the last year I didn't kickstart. Ugh. :)

I think you enjoy finding out about obscure prospective games more than actually playing games Derf :-D

I liked Survivarium from that list...Door Kickers could be good if it's executed well. The rest may not be entirely my thing, dunno. :)
