While not as good as the originals they've proven that the turn based system still works, which i love because between this and turn based RPGs on kickstarter doing well it proves that the genres aren't dead. Now if more JRPGs would come over like in the old days.
There is also The Banner Saga and the team responsible for the acclaimed Final Fantasy Tactics is doing their own kickstarter game in the same style called Unsung Story.What are some of this turn based RPG's from kickstarter? are they more like Civilization or like Xcom?
Minor point: Civilization isn't a turn-based RPG, nor is XCom (although the new XCom games have some minor RPG-esque character building -- moreso than the original). Those games are more turn-based strategy.What are some of this turn based RPG's from kickstarter? are they more like Civilization or like Xcom?
I remember trying a police turn based game, I think it was called SWAT back in the day. It wasn't as good as Xcom but still enjoyed it enough. Always looking for more turn based games like them.
The first Shadowrun game was terrific, and there's been some solid fan-made content, too, including full campaigns. I haven't played Dragonfall or Hong Kong yet. That said, there's also Boston Lockdown, but I've heard pretty mediocre reviews of that one. It might improve down the road, but right now, it's not great from what I hear.There was Wasteland which is like the original Fallouts, Bard's Quest 4 is taking backers now, There's been 3 Shadowrun games backed. Most of them are party based where each character you control gets a turn to attack and whatnot. I never played Civilization, i always thought it was a real time strategy game like Command and Conquer.
All the successful ones are on steam and i'm pretty sure gog.com so there's no DRM and you can play them offline. I hate steam so i go with DRM free all the way.
Banner Saga is excellent, if someone limited in the scope of the game. They're doing a second one of those, too.There is also The Banner Saga and the team responsible for the acclaimed Final Fantasy Tactics is doing their own kickstarter game in the same style called Unsung Story.
That's fine. Maybe I'll check back in 6 months and see where it is then. For now, though, I'm saving my cash.Boston Lockdown has been getting major patches almost every week since it was released. I just downloaded another big update for it today, so they are steadily ironing out the issues with it.
