We return with the seventeenth edition of our series designed to help RPGamer cater to the ever-increasing number of indie titles that our staff regrettably does not have the resources to provide full coverage to. The idea of this column is to quickly pass on the word about certain games to our readers that they might otherwise not be made aware of, and we hope both readers and developers find this useful.
This edition of our indie update column features the following titles: Eden Falling, Vigilantes, Fall of Light, Destiny Chronicles, Age of Fear 3: The Legend, and Shadows of Adam.
My Time at Portia (16th edition) developer Pathea Games announced it is teaming up with publisher Team17 to release the game.
Tangledeep (5th edition, 12th edition), which is currently in Early Access for PC, Mac, and Linux, has been announced for Nintendo Switch in early 2018.
Tanzia (6th edition), another game currently in Early Access, will also be coming to Nintendo Switch in December 2017.
Razor Edge Games announced that its upcoming title Epocylipse the AfterFall has been renamed to Eden Falling. Originally announced at the beginning of 2016, Eden Falling takes place on a post-apocalyptic world after an asteroid brings vast changes and new dangers to the environment. The game is turn-based and aims to emulate tabletop RPGs. Players will be able to play solo or join up with many others online. Eden Falling is being developed for PC and does not currently have a release date.
