Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones backer demo released, coming late 2018

You might remember Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones, the impressive-looking Lovecraftian turn-based by Cultic Games that was successfully Kickstarted last June. We haven't reported about since then, but development of the game has progressed at a steady pace, with meaty bi-monthly Kickstarter updates. By last month, it'd apparently come far enough that the developers were able to commit to a release date at the end of 2018. That announcement has been followed up with the release of a backer demo yesterday. The demo is very much a private affair and there are no fancy trailers to show, so I thought I'd share a couple of videos from Stygian's past updates instead. Specifically, from last month's update about the game's character creation and January's update about its inventory system.


Our users who have played it report that the backer demo is surprisingly good, with impressive production values, a convincing Lovecraftian atmosphere and novel use of RPG mechanics, although it might have a bit too much combat. You can read their impressions here. Maybe we should start paying more attention to this game. If you didn't back Stygian when it was on Kickstarter, it's available for preorder on Cultic's website.
