I want to present you a list of awesome upcoming Classic Isometric RPG games which will enlighten your gaming path in 2020.
This Game is Finnish folklore-inspired, story-driven, turn-based tactical RPG with, as we can see beautiful, but a bit claustrophobic environments.
The main protagonist is a woman, probably meaning that you cannot create the character you want. Well usually I would say that this Is a bad thing, but after playing Witcher games I’m not so sure about that because you can make a more realistic scenario if you know what you are writing about. But putting all this information aside it’s kinda weird that this trailer focuses on some beardy giant instead of the main protagonist, which is a girl, right? So it’s a bit confusing.
Iron Danger has one interesting mechanic to offer: you can rewind time and take another path of fighting or puzzle solving. That would be really a handy thing in real life. For example, if you drank a lot of vodkas yesterday and today you realized that you had a bit too many with a terrible headache then you start vomiting in the toilet, near the toilet, on the toilet door, on your mother, it’s a sad day for you. But imagine if you could rewind your life to yesterday and instead of vomiting you could drink all that vodka again.
Druidstone: The Secret of Menhir Forest
As we can see, the game has wonderful graphics and really nice special effects. Everything is OK in that front so let’s dig deeper. In the world of Druidstone the druids possess a great power: they can reincarnate. meaning that they can die and then return to the body of THE former self.
The game promises to challenge hand-crafted missions with playtimes from 15 to 45 minutes and a unique fantasy setting combining elements from western RPGs, JRPGS, and tactical board games. Druidstone was released somewhere around the spring of 2019.
Creators of Wasteland 2 and Torment: Tides of Numenera are on a roll of releasing new sequel of well-known series. It’s gonna be a party-based role-playing game with a focus on strategic combat and complex story.
This time game will include environmental dangers, more fluid action systems, vehicles, and also will support co-op mode. Wasteland 3 will be set in the savage lands of frozen Colorado, where survival is difficult and a happy ending is never guaranteed. Well, maybe except if your name is LeonHard. Then you can get twice as many happy endings. In Wasteland 3 you have to face difficult moral choices and make sacrifices that will change the game world.
At the time of making this video Wasteland 3 had no exact release date announced, but now it’s known that you can play the game on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
Black Geyser: Couriers of Darkness
At the time of making this video Black Geyser already had 100,000 dollars of pledges on Kickstarter, and more than doubled the amount of money they asked for making this game a reality.
Inspired by Baldur’s Gate, Icewind Dale, and other classics, Black Geyser is an isometric, party-based, single-player RPG with some nice key features: You can have a party up to 5 characters with rich personalities and past, you can choose your own character from several races and classes, you can pause the game at any time and free roam across wilderness and dungeons. “sounds wonderful” I know, right?
Another sci-fi post-apocalyptic isometric role-playing game, heavily inspired by the famous RPGs of the late ’90s.
Here the player is a participant in a project researching the technology and artifacts of a long-gone civilization. So be prepared for dangerous anomalies and cool artifacts! Like alien vodka making machine or potato salad generator from outer space.
Game is quite short, the campaign will last about thirty hours, but creators say that Encased will have significant replay potential because the world will change along with the actions you do and the decisions you make. If I were creator, I would say the same, but only time will tell if that’s true. Also, the game will take place in an open world, so you could go anywhere you want and do anything you want. I doubt this will be a possibility, but you never know, nowadays RPG’s keeps surprising us.
So, anyway, in Encased when moving from one location to another, and traveling around the world, random events can occur. So the game is quite dynamic and let’s hope– not boring. Early access will be available in the first quarter of 2019.
Creators have promised that the game will have a complex turn-based combat system featuring hundreds of spells, feats, and actions. The interesting thing is that they have a custom-built isometric graphics engine, that combines zoomable 2D and 3D technology which can bring to life extremely detailed and massive hand-crafted levels.
As we can see from a trailer, the game is truly beautiful and full of colors. Creators said that here you can pick your character from 7 different races and 8 different classes, completely customize their appearance, equipment, and everything else, also game offers amazing opportunities to create your own adventures, campaigns, or even entire worlds.
