Souldiers is a sidescrolling Metroidvania with a heavy emphasis on RPG development. As certainly one of three classes—archer, mage or scout—you will discover a sprawling fantasy world with unbelievably attractive pixel artwork.

One Steam evaluate describes Tinyfolks as “an Amiga version of Darkest Dungeon”, which sounds fairly interesting to me. It’s a method RPG about constructing a rugged ye olde township in a land riddled with monsters, which necessitates going into tactical turn-based battle in opposition to stated monsters. There are 20 playable classes with greater than 15 weapons and 20 “artefacts”, and over 70 monsters to battle. This appears like an actual labour of affection, and the artwork model is gorgeous. If you’d want, you will get it on Itch as effectively.

In Dwerve, a nasty Witch-Queen is inflicting a neighborhood of dwarves grief, and it is your job to fend off the “bloodthirsty trolls” she’s sending in to do her bidding. It’s a top-down Zelda-like that splits its time between dungeon exploration and extra strategic tower protection, the latter utilizing “the lost technologies of the ancient warsmiths”, of of which could be very completely upgraded. Dwerve is the results of a profitable Kickstarter marketing campaign and has attracted over 200 “mostly positive” rankings on Steam already, so if that style hybrid sounds best for you, take a look.
