Hello, you may now embed "gifv" simply by pasting the link (same as youtube). Enjoy!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
The English fairy tale aesthetic and mythology is something I am very fond of with its various pagan influences. Sadly it's kind of rare in gaming which is too bad because I love these throwbacks to my childhood. Here are the games I know of that really nail the atmosphere I am looking for:
Despite being very disjointed and having a population that was dumber than a sack of bricks Albion was a really beautiful world to be in. A proper open world Fable 3 that treats the f***** ending as canon is one of my most wanted games.
I am yet to play more than the demo (finding a copy is tricky but I should have one soon) but that was enough to sell me on Folklore. It seems to take place in an English coastal village where fairies of various sorts come out at night. It even has a henge that has a portal from which the land of the dead can be accessed during samhain.
