Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom Review [Pixelkin]

Read the full review at Pixelkin

Nostalgia for the action-platformers of the 80s and 90s have helped fuel the modern indie game industry, from spiritual successors to direct recreations. Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom is a modern take on the old and underrated Wonder Boy series.

The first new Wonder Boy game since 1994 has been given an astonishing overhaul, with gorgeous hand-drawn animations, a bombastic musical score, and a lengthy campaign that hits every checkbox of regional themes. Unfortunately it also dregs up some of the more unforgiving challenges and obtuse puzzle designs of that era, holding back an otherwise fantastic original entry.

Published by: Dylan Hyatt

Time-travel often makes for fun, if confusing stories. I don’t see them too often in tabletop RPGs as they could require a lot of linear storytelling.

The Sunken Village of Little Corth” is a level 2 adventure that sends the PCs back in time to thwart a time-traveling necromancer and fulfill a prophecy that they’re already a part of. The adventure includes lots of fun little ideas that tie the past and present together, but it’s a densely packed read and requires the PCs to work in perfect sequence with the DM.

Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones is a Post-Cosmic Horror RPG [PC Gamer]

Read the full article at PC Gamer

In most eldritch horror fiction, the heroes’ goal is to prevent the end of the world. In Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones, an isometric tactical RPG, the end of the world has already happened.

“We define Stygian as a role-playing game about horror, loss, and madness,” says Can Oral (pronounced Jon Rahl), lead designer and creative director at Cultic Games. “It takes place after the awakening of the great old ones. Your goal isn’t about saving the world, it’s already too late.”

The story takes place in the city of Arkham, which has been torn loose from the ruins of Earth and floats under an alien sky beneath a perpetual lair of gloom and despair. The city has been divided up between pagan cultists and ruthless mobsters, and many of the residents have either gone insane, or are teetering close to the edge.
