Many years ago when the 8-bit ruled the era, there was a game called Lords of Midnight by Mike Singleton that took the world by storm. A game that featured a ground breaking technique called landscaping to depict the lands of Midnight from a first-person perspective. It was such a grand game that had you both traversing the landscape to solve a quest and recruiting troops for the war to come.

Midboss : Positively Possessing


Midboss is a procedurally generated, turn based dungeon crawler with a heavy focus on enemy possession made by Emma 'Eniko' Maassen. You begin the game as a weak imp and will want to posses the first rat you see. In order to posses a creature you must first mark the enemy with a possession spell then defeat them. This requirement means you can't simply go and posses the strongest monster you see and keep the game tough. Possessing a creature is also fully heals you and is one of the few ways to heal your character in the game which makes constant use of possession essential.

KeeperRL - Dungeon Keeper and Dwarf Fortress inspired dungeon simulator game pushes for crowdfunding


I have just been informed by Michał Brzozowski that his opensource dungeon simulator game, KeeperRL is now up for crowd funding via Indiegogo. KeeperRL is inspired by other great dungeon creation games such as Dungeon Keeper and Dwarf Fortress but through his own graphical style. Think of Dungeon Keeper but blended through a roguelike world. Especially as that world is procedurally generated and can be explored and conquered. You play as an evil wizard seeking the ultimate knowledge of destruction, but will you find what you seek? Or will the minions let you down? As it's only a $5,000 Goal, I think this might be on to a winner. - Don't forget to give the free Alpha a try!

Sid Meier's Civilization Beyond Earth - Hot News : Alpha Centauri sequel? Announced! Now with a trailer!


Probably the biggest news of the week has just hit the Indie Retro News HQ as Sid Meier is back with a new Alpha Centauri (1999), one of the greatest sci-fi turn based strategy games I've ever played. Sid Meier's Civilization Beyond Earth as it's titled, will not be a simple remake of Alpha Centauri but rather a "what would happen after Civilization V" (according to the devs). There will also be 3 types of planets from lush vegetation to airy decaying worlds. You will start with an Outpost and your only goal will be to survive! Are you alone on this world? Will you build cities upon the lush or decaying landscape? Will this be as good as the original? Who knows, but I'm sure many of us will be waiting for even more news on Beyond Earth!
Release date : Late 2014 Systems : PC, Mac, Linux - UPDATE : On further investigation, it seems as if this isn't a direct sequel, but the concept will be very similar, a representation of Civilization, but in space. UPDATE 2:  New Trailer!
