Not to be confused with the *Other* troll song, this is a point and click adventure from the heart of the Adventure Game Studio forums, Where CaptainD has been slaving away for his passion project to bring us an adventure game which is very different from the usual pirate, detective, or ninja pirate fare.
Terra Incognita ~ Chapter One: The Descendant - A retro inspired RPG needs your Steam Greenlight votes
A big Kickstarter success for BackToBasicsGaming, as they have now turned their attention towards Steam Greenlight for their latest game "Terra Incognita ~ Chapter One: The Descendant"; a retro inspired turn based RPG heavily influenced by retro games such as the Final Fantasy series and Suikoden 2. The developers are promising a deep and immersive story-line, a vast world with rich detail, fast turn based battle system, a large amount of recruitable characters, legendary weapons, an original 16-bit sound track and much more. With many hours of game time, lots of baddies and great dungeon crawling, "Terra Incognita" might be worthy of your Steam Greenlight votes!

Only just last month we announced "SkySaga"; A fantastic looking Minecraft style multiplayer game by Radiant Worlds which is currently going through early Alpha testing. Today's announcement is that SkySaga has now reached an Alpha 2 stage and is available for closed testing by invite through registration. A lovely game indeed which I was able to test last night. As it features new lands to discover such as sea, snow, sand, fields and mountains where you can create, build, dig, harvest trade and much much more. SkySaga really is full of charm and immersive detail that I actually preferred over Minecraft. I just hope they put in a bigger FOV and Mouse Acceleration settings.

The demo that blew me away was "20 years is nothing; a visually impressive petscii demo that tells it's own story.
