Tower of Time dev Occasion Horizon is back with Dark Envoy, an RPG inspired by XCOM, FTL, and Dragon Age. Here’s new gameplay from Gamescom.
Polish developer Occasion Horizon is determined to smash RPG tropes, but it does not shy away from acknowledging the greats of the genre. For its upcoming title Dark Envoy, the developer has cited games like XCOM, FTL: Quicker Than Light, Mass Impact, and Dragon Age as inspiration. If games could come with each other to kind supergroup bands, then this gang definitely qualifies.
Dark Envoy is set in a planet exactly where the Human Empire is clashing with the Old Races and Dark Technologies is clashing with Magic. It is against this tumultuous backdrop that our fantasy saga plays out, starring siblings Kaela and Kiros as they repair their parents’ broken airship and set out for adventure.
So far so Final Fantasy, but Occasion Horizon is keen on letting players get in touch with the shots when it comes to the story choices. What legacy you leave upon the planet is up to you and your conscience. Here’s the essential art of the game, which attributes a benevolent version of the protagonist Kiros searching at a seemingly evil version of himself. Reminds me pretty a bit of the classic Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic games.
To discover out how the game plays, have a appear at its Gamescom trailer, which was released nowadays.
Dark Envoy was announced a couple of weeks ago, and the devs place with each other an announcement trailer for it. Here’s a appear:
As it says in the trailers up there, Dark Envoy will release in 2020 (in the latter half, it turns). It will release across Computer (through Steam), PS4, and Xbox 1.
In the meantime, you could verify out Occasion Horizon’s debut RPG, Tower of Time, which released final year.
Also have a appear at The Captain is Dead, in which you handle a harried starship crew right after their captain is, nicely, dead. For some Lovecraftian spooks and scares, have a appear at fellow RPG Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones.
