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!
Atlus just announced the other day that theyre bringing over Genmu no Tou to Tsurugi no Okite to the US under the title The Dark Spire with a release date of 3/10/09. it looks a lot like Etrian Odyssey and other Wizardry inspired first person dungeon crawlers. it does automapping though, so you dont draw maps like in EO. what really sets it apart at first glance are the sweetass art style, and the available "classic mode" which is the same game but with wireframe black and white graphics and crude 8bit style sprites. the game was developed by Success.
official site (be sure you click on classic mode) japanese flash version (Controls are arrow keys for movement, A to open things/action button, X to confirm things like attacks, B to cancel, and Y to toggle the map.)
so its out now. theres this wiki, for all your informational type needs.
