Pre-Release Previews

Preview: Naked Doom

Trever Bierschbach takes a look at Naked Doom, a Tunnels & Trolls digital adventure debuted at Gencon.  Naked Doom is a new effort by the venerage tabletop series to branch out into adventure games on the PC and other platforms.

Preview: RimWorld

Maiyannah takes an early look at RimWorld, a game recently Greenlit on Steam but not yet available thereupon, and which could best be described as what happened if you marooned Prison Architect and DwarfFortress together on an isolated world alone and they had a lovechild they had to sustain on exploding rats and bits of twigs.  It's a bit rough around the edges in terms of presentation, but it's also a deep simulation that is well-designed and strangely absorbing.

Preview: Black Ice

We take an early look at Black Ice, an award-winning cyberpunk-themed rogue-light game available now on Steam Early Access.  Spoiler: It's kind of fun!

Preview: The Consuming Shadow

The Consuming Shadow is a horror adventure game by popular games critic and book writer Ben "Yahtzee" Crowshaw.  It has some heavy emphasis on a particular FTL-ish roguelike system, emphasizing travelling between different locations, collecting resources, and preparing yourself for that last final battle with the big bad - if you even get that far.  Usually you won't.
