have you checked out Arcade Spirits: The new challengers? Audra has that for sure! i play it too I didn’t play the first game but Alana did and she really likes it! I promise you, our site’s SEO practices haven’t turned into an odd need to add a hyperlink to every sentence that doesn’t end in a period, although I realize that by the end of that first paragraph, you have no reason to do so to believe me.

I also played a lot Xenoblade Chronicles. You know, I gotta get ready for the big thing on July 29th! I set Shulk and his friends to auto-run and had them float off the other side of the Eryth Sea and then I went off and made popcorn and I came back and I opened the bag of popcorn and Shulks still swim out there Not even halfway to the other side of the map. I’m still impressed by the size of this game.

But let’s get down to business. RPGs are coming this week. And you know what that means – RPGs are coming this week.


Corpse Factory – May 31st (Windows)

Well, we certainly start things off pretty aggressively. Our voyeuristic narrator doesn’t seem to remember the stoic, intrepid Noriko, and without having acted corpse factory, an exciting new visual novel coming to Windows this week (with a Switch version on the way soon), I can’t say I remember Noriko at all.

Imagine it. You want someone dead and all you have to do to make that happen is submit a photo of the potential victim to a shady website and wait for the results. Your target is then given a picture of their own corpse with a timestamp of their death in the near future. It’s a fierce and zesty recipe for a VN, that’s for sure, and it can be all yours tomorrow on PC.


Shinogi Chess Club – May 31st (Windows, macOS, Linux)

“This RPGFan place has really gone downhill. I just did a quick scan of an article and they have chess recorded as a role play. Chess. I bet they think zelda is also a role-playing game!”

Shinogi Chess Club is not on our list because you play Shinogi Chess in the game as well as Xenosaga Episode I: The Will to Power is not in our database because you can get rich playing poker onboard a spaceship casino. granted, XenosagaThe subtitle of isn’t “The Will to Poker” so you can assume that Shinogi Chess has an important role in it Shinogi Chess Club‘s story.

This is a visual novel. It’s also a chess game. It tells a tale of supernatural abilities and bizarre corporate conspiracies. Again, it’s a chess game. That’s quite a marriage Shinogi Chess Club, and everything is yours. All she All you have to do is click “Buy” and deposit the required credit with your PC retailer of choice. The future is now.


Tinyfolks – June 1st (Windows, macOS, Linux)

This one wins the RPG with the cutest title of the week award. Small people is described as a “minimalist strategy role-playing game with a retro look”. Those are the exact words of developer Pierre Vandermaesen, and judging by the screenshot above, yes, that’s certainly an honest pitch. If you like city building and nearly two dozen potential character classes, Small people is a solid grip.

On that note, I’m enjoying the current renaissance of Game Boy Pocket wallpapers that games like Small people bring to the table. Interestingly, certain UI elements are also fully colored, giving the project a rather unique flair.


Pinku Kult: Hex Mortis – June 1st (PS4, Switch, XB1, XSX, Windows, iOS, Android)

Speaking of titles, I think it’s fair to say that publisher Valorware cornered the market Pinku Kult: Hex Mortis. A mystery goes over Razore City. The girl in the fox mask must be stopped. Hey, I don’t make the rules. There’s a small issue with a demonic invasion of Razore City, but honestly, as far as I’m concerned, if they’re as awesome as those beasts above, they can totally stay.

Old-school turn-based combat blends with a narrative experience that’s like reading the label recipe for a classic RPG extravaganza. There are puzzles galore scattered throughout dank dungeons and mansions that are sure to be haunted.


Higurashi When They Cry Hou – Rei – June 2nd (Windows, macOS, Linux)

Do you know the epic saga that is when they cry? That is a long story. The franchise has spawned anime and manga adaptations, but it started out in visual novel form, and that’s still its home territory. Going into the finer points, or even the broader points, is far beyond the scope of this article. Let’s just say it’s busy. Supernatural and scientific suspense mysteries famous and notorious for their high level of difficulty. That’s the gist.

Higurashi when they cry Hou-Rei follows a prominent character on the series named Rika in the summer of 1983 as she explores the next chapter of her life following the tragic events of the lead role Higurashi whey they cry Sheets. If you heard about it Umineko or the newer ones ciconiathese are the other big wings of when they cry.

If you’re looking for a hard-hitting, unforgettable visual novel this week, look no further.


Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer’s Legacy – May 27th (PS4, XB1, XSX, Windows)

Oops, we missed that last week. Pretend this week is last week. Temporal paradox. While May 27th marked the PC release (outside the Epic Games Store), this Thursday marks the console release.

We talk a lot about roguelites here, mostly because the industry loves to release roguelites. OK, that’s not fair to all the die-hard roguelite fans on the site. They talk a lot about roguelites because they love roguelites. They haven’t been my favorite thing since sliced ​​bread, but I enjoy writing about them when they make something fresh.

Unexplored 2: Legacy of the Wanderer is fun because it has a nice twist on permadeath. While your character has kicked the bucket, you always have the option to create someone else in the same world state. In other words, the choices you made before continue to be reflected as you retrace your steps and figure out what went wrong. Not you to have reloading this way, but the benefit is always there.

Just a little wrinkle. Once you engage in the game’s final mission, failure is catastrophic. the world ends There is no way to continue with another heroic adventurer. That’s where Unexplored 2 goes hard into his permadeath and does it in a classic way. I think it’s a cleaner approach.


Empyre: Dukes of the Far Frontier – June 3 (Windows)

Empyre Screenshot of a desert village

Empyre: Dukes of the Far Frontier is a neo-Victorian Wild West RPG crammed to bursting with steampunk automatons and lonely cowboys. There aren’t many of us left, and by us I mean humans. It’s something of a pilgrimage deep in the wasteland until a city called Utopia is founded and all is right with the world.

Aside from what I’m sure we can all agree, any civilization that names their settlement Utopia is bound to be fraught with problems. Darkness awaits you, wanderer, and the opportunity to reshape the fate of mankind or leave it in the dregs of a dog-eat-horse boundary.


Also coming this week

A proper pair of ports for your potential perusal.

Maglam Lord – May 30th (Windows)

Maybe you were like me hanging out with Bladelord Killzerk on a PlayStation 4 or Nintendo Switch a few months ago. Audra too! Or maybe you’ve been waiting for that PC port. Or maybe, just maybe Mr Maglam you don’t care at all. Hey, that’s cool. This is a judgment-free zone. We’re just glad you’re reading our stuff.

Lamplight City – June 2 (Change)

You might have been hanging out loosely with Miles Fordham on a PC a few years ago, in a way I didn’t. But Tina did it! Or maybe you’ve been waiting for this Nintendo Switch port. Or maybe, just maybe Lamplight City you don’t care at all. Hey, that’s cool. This is a judgment-free zone. We’re just glad you’re reading our stuff.


Samyang’s Spicy Chicken Ramen is no joke. My tongue’s a little on fire. I finish typing like a busy quinton, but seriously, steam may be rising between my lips. It’s getting hot, friends. I drink a nice sour lemonade and return to the world of argument Xenoblade Chronicles now.

I reiterate that our site’s SEO practices have not turned into an odd need to add a hyperlink to every sentence that doesn’t end in a period, although I realize that after completing this entire page you still have no reason have to believe me. If anything, you only have reason to double down here.
