Miegakure is due out soon I think.



4D puzzle game, confirmed for PC/PS4 so far I think. It's about shifting between four spacial dimensions. I played an early demo, and it was a lot of fun.

Million Souls To Take [PC]
http://divinityfatum.blogspot.gr/2014/11/million-souls-to-take.html

TBA

*as said by the Developer*
Million Souls To Take is simple dungeon-crawler. We explore new locations, encounter monsters, collect loot and sometimes fall into traps to finally encounter domain's boss.
I want to capture in this game things that I mostly enjoyed in games, but it was never exploited to such extent to be fully satisfying. What I always loved in RPG games was character's grow and it's customisation. Thus, MSTT will feature Attribute System, which will give us control over character's development. I also intend to add A LOT of skills which we'll be able to learn freely. There will be also a lot of items and equipment with it's many variations (for example: there will be a simple sword and that same sword with fire attribute). Everything will be available in stores that randomly generate it's current ware as well as in "crosses" that serve as treasure chests in game. There will be also a lot of summons that will aid us in battles and grow alongside us. Everything put in simple, yet difficult game where we won't have much of a plot, but hopefully a lot of entertainment.

Eternal is a visual novel with a huge focus on cinematic elements. That means you should expect tons of cutscenes (currently estimated at over 2000 in total). So, if you like the presentation of School Days you may very well be into Eternal as well.
Eternal’s focus on magical girls should also attract fans of those stories. Eternal’s release date is currently set for 2018.

Steel Assault [PC]

http://steelassault.tumblr.com/
TBA

The game mainly focuses on close combat, but the player is also equipped with a variety of different weapons. Its aesthetic is inspired by late 8-bit games on the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), such as Shatterhand and Batman. These games utilized heavy dithering and details in negative space to create a dark atmosphere within the primitive system's limitations.

That’s a great idea for a thread. I am going to post about CrossCode (once I get to an actual computer) which is coming out soon out of EA on Steam.







This retro-inspired 2D Action RPG might outright surprise you. CrossCode combines 16-bit SNES-style graphics with butter-smooth physics, a fast-paced combat system, and engaging puzzle mechanics, served with a gripping sci-fi story.

CrossCode is all about how it plays! That's why there is a free Steam demo! Go give it a try!

Take the best out of two popular genres, find a good balance between them and make a great game. That’s what CrossCode does. And it works pretty well. You get the puzzles of Zelda-esque dungeons and are rewarded with the great variety of equipment you know and love from RPGs. During the fast-paced battles you will use the tools you find on your journey to reveal and exploit the enemies' weaknesses and at the same time will be able to choose equipment and skills for a more in-depth approach in fighting your enemies.


The game itself is simply excellent and it's coming out from EA soon. Gameplay is very smooth, combat system is great, storyline has a great sci-fi vibe, characters are fun and 16-bit graphics are very very good. They have a sense of depth to them which you don't usually see in "retro" games. I highly recommend it. Let's just say that CrossCode and Cosmic Star Heroine are my favorite SNES style retro RPGs.

Link to the actual game: http://store.steampowered.com/app/368340/CrossCode/

Apocalypse Cow

http://monstersarehere.com/en/games/apocalypse-cow
Apocalypse Cow is a narrative driven action comedy. It's an explosive platformer that borrows modern storytelling from games like Bioshock and Tomb Raider and combines it with the intensity of action that only an arcade game can provide.

You can freeze time to overcome armies and survive bullets, rockets, lasers and bad jokes. You can blow-up walls and jump on the debris before they hit the ground. Or just walk through explosions like a badass poser.

Steam 2018


Hybris (PC, consoles)
http://monstersarehere.com/en/games/hybris

You are Kevin, a teenager growing up in the outskirts of the Grove. You are living a solitary and difficult life - you have felt alone for as long as you can remember. Your parents are fighting once again so you escape to your favorite spot up the hill to find some peace. When you witness a light filling up the sky you know that your world will never be the same again.

To survive in Hybris you have to lose yourself in its world to be able to navigate the dangerous environment and find the solution to puzzles using all of your senses. Hybris is an exercise in silent storytelling following the tradition of great games like Another World, Ico and Journey and its dark setting will haunt your thoughts long after you have finished it.

You play as a mercenary that has just been hired as a "Dragon Caretaker", however you immediately find the dragons you'll be taking care of are all cute girls! It's up to you to keep them safe and happy throughout various conflicts: both internal and external.
The world of Dragon Date is filled with tension. The game is set roughly fifty years after the war between dragons and humans, and there's still a bit of malice on both sides. On one hand you have the Holy Templar Order, who are sticking true to their dragon slaying agenda despite years of peace, and on the other you have the various dragon clans, not satisfied with their diminished stature. Then you have the five young dragon girls you'll be taking care of, often swept up in the conflict.
With strength and perseverance, you can lead the girls to victory and maybe eventually, a peaceful life.

Now that you mentioned the character look like a Soul Reaver character.
