In his latest indie RPG round-up, Jay Barnson points out an isometric sci-fi RPG in the works that might actually be worth playing - Timelapse Vertigo. Watch the Alpha 2 video and then read up on the details:
The game is set in a distant future, when the life on the Earth’s surface has long since been made impossible and the remnants of humanity now dwell in the Underrail, a vast system of metro station-states that, it seems, are the last bastions of a fading race.
The player takes control of one of the denizens of such a station-state whose life is about to become all that much more interesting and dangerous, as our protagonist is caught amidst the conflicting factions of the Underrail as they secretly but violently struggle for the Humanity’s last gem of hope.
- Great character customization possibilities through stats, skills, feats, items and more that allows for many different play-styles
- Challenging dynamic real time combat that utilizes weapons, energy shields, grenades, psi abilities and more
- Vast underground world to explore: city states, abandoned building complexes, natural caverns, secret areas and more.
- Elaborate item crafting system
Shame about the real-time combat. And title.
