I know some people are worried because of what Josh Sawyer said about the future of RPG. So I thought I'd go over my list of games I'm keeping an eye on and see, which of them might appeal to fans of the IE games, the old Fallout, Ultima, or Shadowrun Returns. I haven'T included Deadfire, because we all know about it already, anyway. I also haven't includes The Bard's Tale IV (different style, though it's turn-based), and Wasteland 3 (very well known).
-Realms Beyond fantasy
-Synstasis (formerly Synapse) sci-fi, dystopy
-Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones lovecraftian
-Spy DNA near future
-Dungeons of Aledorn (Updates are rare, but they seem to be still working on it) fantasy
-InSomnia: The Ark (Action Combat, but still promising) scifi
-Disco Elysium 70s, crime
-Wellspring: Altar of Roots (formerly Bevontule) fantasy
-Corven: Path of Redemption fantasy
-The Meridian Shard fantasy
-ATOM postapocalyptic sci-fi
-Pathfinder: Kingmaker fantasy
-Copper Dreams sci-fi, dystopy
These are 13 games. There used to be more, but those seem to be cancelled or on hold, as there haven't been any updates for more than a year. Still, nothing to worry about for us, in my opinion. And these are just the ones of an old schoolish kind. There are more modern ones, too, but I wanted to concentrate on a certain type of RPG for this list. We'll be fine for many years, even if not all games of my list will see the light of release.
Personally, I've fallen in love with the graphics of Realms Beyond, so I hope they won't screw it up.
