DEVELOPER: DARK CRYSTAL GAMES • PUBLISHER: DARK CRYSTAL GAMES • DUE: APRIL 2019 Darkcrystalgames.com
There are few genres of games as beloved as the isometric RPGs of yore, and developer Dark Crystal Games is hoping to mine that heavy lode of nostalgia with Encased, it at-time-of-writing Kickstarter project that will hopefully (fingers crossed!) hit Steam’s Early Access next year.
The game tasks you
with exploring a long-dead civilisation and its artifacts. There are mysteries to solve and discoveries to make, as your decisions change the world around you. Encased features turn-based combat that gives players a lot of choices in how they handle each encounter, and a highly replayable campaign that lasts up to 30 hours.
