Aeon of Sands : The Trail - Dungeon Crawling RPG love letter to the 90's!


As most of you know I'm a huge Dungeon Crawling RPG fan, especially games that hark back to the days of Eye of Beholder or Lands of Lore, and it's with great pleasure to announce Aeon of Sands : The Trail. Developed by Two Bits Kid, based in Germany, Aeon of Sands is a "Dungeon Adventure" story-driven RPG love letter to the golden Amiga, PC classics of the 90's



The Trail will be the first chapter in the series in which you follow a young city clerk on his adventures in a world under two suns, between the life they nurture and the ruin they bring. The game will be a story-driven experience with unique choices, real time action, auto mapping, and more than 20 big dungeons full of unique items (300+) with lots of creepy monsters and menacing bosses. What's more Aeon of Sands will feature a skill gain system and an item-based magic system, in a game world of great hand drawn art work and painted visuals.


Aeon of Sands is due for release early 2015 for both PC, Mac and Linux and the developers claim that the style and feeling will be of the classic RPG games such as Perihelion, EOB and Dungeon Master.

Certainly a fantastic looking game and a true love letter to the classics, so if it's as good as Eye of the Beholder I'll gladly put down my +1 Mace and level up for a game that could be pretty damn incredible!

  7. A port to AmigaOS could be fun. Hell why not. But first things first :).
