Intro Indie: The New World Beckons in GreedFall

June 14, 2018
Also on: PS4, Xbox One

While many in the gaming community are revelling over all the fantastic AAA game news from this year's E3 conference, some amazing games have also come out of the indie game community. One of these is GreedFall. It is the latest RPG to come out of Spiders, a Paris-based indie studio who specialises in RPGs. It is currently in development and will be available on PS4, XBox One, and PC. It is due to release at some point in 2019, although a definite date has yet to be confirmed.

The game is set in the 17th century during a time when all the resources and land has been either taken over or polluted beyond use. Merchants and adventurers have discovered a new land which has somehow remained untouched by mankind and appears to be ripe for the taking. However, those in charge are wrong. This new land called Teer Fradee is already home to a race of people who have managed to develop a mysterious relationship with the World around them and they will not give up their land so easily.

Much of the content in GreedFall has been inspired by 17th century Europe. From the architecture of the city you leave behind, to the military forces landing on Teer Fradee, everything has its roots in that particular time period. Even the art style derives from Baroque and Flemish paintings of the time.

The developers, Spiders, are a dab hand at making RPGs given their successful history. From The Technomancer which was released in 2016, to 2014's Bound by Flame, the studio is constantly developing the way they make games in this ever popular genre and break the boundaries within it. As stated above, GreedFall is set to release in 2019 but, until then, check out the trailer from E3 and let us know what you think!

Wastelands' thrilling finale means it's a step up from Rules, but it makes a few missteps in its handling of the brothers’ relationship to get there.

It all began with the Atari ST. Then the first home PC. And the rest is history. Although a platformer and RPG lass at heart, I'm willing to give anything a go, and if a game looks quirky then you've got my attention!
