Foregone aims to be the next brutal 2D brawler [PC Gamer]

Read the full preview at PC Gamer

Deep in the laboratory, a new enemy that looks like a Bane cosplayer teleports next to me, slamming into the ground and knocking out half my health in a single strike. I scramble to unload a quick series of sword strikes before he disappears. I roll to the side this time when he warps back, finishing him off with a shotgun blast. Unfortunately I rolled too close to a pair of sword-spinning goblins, forcing me to jump into a stream of bullets from a nearby minigun-wielding soldier. I curse as my body is vaporized, showering the ground with hard-earned gold and crystals and sending me back to the outpost to try again.

Death is a frequent and frustrating occurrence in Foregone, a challenging 2D action-platformer out on the Epic Game Store’s version of Early Access this week.

I never paid much attention to the odd, square-headed figurines known as Funko, despite their incredible popularity and breadth of licenses. They couldn’t be scanned into their own video game series like Skylanders, nor unlock various Nintendo features as with Amiibo. Plop them into a series of tactical strategy board games, however, and you have my attention.

With intuitive rules, multiple game modes, and asymmetrical figures, the Funkoverse Strategy Games are a refreshing blend of family-friendly content with satisfying tactical gameplay.

Typically when I think of possession I think of ghosts and demons and horror movies – or perhaps a villain’s attempt to bind an evil creature to their will. Mark of the Vestige is all about consensual possession, summoning up an otherworldly entity and forming a contract to gain their powers.

With clear rules, excellent writing, thematic art, and dozens of options, Mark of the Vestige is one of the most impressive sourcebooks I’ve seen on the DMs Guild.

The final showdown in the Fane of the Night Serpent went from a bang to a whimper, thanks to some particularly effective AOE spells against Ras Nsi’s guards and personal bodyguard, but the verbal showdown with Ras Nsi himself proved much more fruitful.
