When we haven’t updated the front page for a few weeks, we start getting a regular stream of emails asking for some news. Well, we’ve said in the past when it is quiet here at Basilisk Games it is because we are hard at work, and that has never been truer than now. Book II is looking great and we are getting ready to run through another internal test in January. The release is not that far off! Please keep checking back, and don’t forget to follow us on Twitter and Facebook!
1UP recently ran a feature with industry leaders chiming in on the future of single-player RPGs. All sorts of interesting topics are covered. When they get to the section on indie RPGs, Alan Miranda of Ossian Studios mentions Eschalon: Book I and said he enjoyed it. The article is a great read for anyone interested in the genre of single-player RPGs.
