    Yup.

    Just posted this in the release thread:

    Show Spoiler


    Started pretty good, but the game feels so damn undercooked.

    Alvora Tactics (sequel to Codex-indie-darling-that-nobody-played Voidspire Tactics) is now available, though only on itch.io for now -- Steam release will happen after it's greenlit. The $10 pricepoint is also much lower than Voidspire's $15.

    Mini-review: it's quite good, and the combat especially is superior to the original (6 party members instead of 4, more classes, better-balanced abilities and stats). However, the game has much less exploration (it's still there, mainly in the form of environmental puzzles), the story/dialogues are heavy on fourth-wall-breaking silliness, and many of the encounters / maps are at least partially randomly generated... otoh this also gives it a lot of replayability. It also has an ironman mode now!

    Heroes of Steel says release date 2014.

    And Low Magic Age has no set release date, from what I can see anyway.

    Apparently Heroes of Steel isn't story complete yet.

    They seem to go for "when it is ready" for actual release.

    Was about to add it to the list, but the Steam reviews.

    Yeah, not sure what is going on there though. They were supposed to release an alpha or something like that, but nada.

    Did you play any of the Age of fear CryptRat ? They keep popping up in my Steam frontpage but they always struck as kind of... Steam shovelware to be honest

    I've played one campaign from the first game (each game contains two campaigns) and it was good, with well crafted battles and fairly decent AI, some nice customization and unit upgrades, some story choices leading to different battles and a cool evil story.
    Besides the 4 campaigns seem to be very disctinct from each other (undeads, humans, orcs and demons) and the developpers are very cool and are constantly updating the games.
    I've bought the two games after playing a demo of the second one, I guess it's still available somewhere, just judge by yourself.
