3 For 3? Stash: No Loot Left Behind Kickstarter

August 1st - via:
Given the relative youth of the platform, there are very few Kickstarter veterans. Even Double Fine, who really kicked off the Kickstarter rush, are still deep in development of their inaugural success story. FrogDice are an exception, having already Kickstarted and released two games in just over a year. Now they’re on their third, Stash: No Loot Left Behind, a free-to-play online RPG that takes inspiration from tabletop gaming and classic RPGs. It’s described as a “graphical successor” to Threshold, their 18-year-old roleplaying-mandatory MUD, and it looks rather charming. (Read More)

Top 10 Indie Games: Dungeon of Elements (Frogdice Games)

May 31st - via:
This game combines a lot of my favorite stuff. It starts with character creation. Then it moves into a really interesting, story-driven RPG where the combat screens have more in common with Dr. Mario than anything else. Given my longing for there to be a new Dr. Mario game, Frogdice has quickly twisted, wiggled, and tapped this game into the top spot on my countdown. There are a lot of indie games out there these days, but there have been few that have held my attention like this one. Just about the time I thought I was going to be through with it, I found another dungeon I loved playing in and just couldn’t stop. The coolest part about this game is the fact that it sits safely within the lore of the games that this company has been making since 1996, and some of the bosses are player-created characters from their other titles! This game will be available for PC in August of 2013. (Read More)

Dungeon of Elements announces Linux support!

May 30th - via:
The game itself is built upon Unity and the author has been very open with me about everything via email and twitter and seems like a real genuine deal here folks. What is it though? Dungeon of Elements is an RPG dungeon crawler with combat inspired by some of our favorite classic puzzle games like Dr. Mario or Tetris. In Dungeon of Elements (DoE), core meets casual as we combine many different styles of gameplay in a fun, immersive experience. While trundling through dungeons, ruins, and 45 different environments, you will defeat over 60 enemy types, collect pets, craft items, weapons, and armor through alchemical experimentation, build your bestiary, and more. (Read More)

Free for All: An interview with ThresholdRPG's Michael Hartman

May 22nd - via:
The last time I explored ThresholdRPG, I had a blast. It was one of a batch of MUDs that I used to re-introduce myself to the ancient gaming genre, and I enjoyed its simplicity and friendly community. MUDs can seem to be very similar to each other, so in order to enjoy them, you must be able to pick out the finer details that separate them. In ThresholdRPG, I particularly enjoyed fishing, roleplay, customization, and a free-to-play model that was years ahead of its time when first released 17 years ago. (Read More)
