Serpent in the Staglands will release this upcoming Thursday, May 28, 2015, for PC, Mac, and Linux for $20 USD. Much like the very successful Wasteland 2 and Pillars of Eternity, Serpent in the Staglands is another computer role playing game that relies heavily on gameplay elements of the 90’s with text based dialogue, classless character builds, heavy focus on difficulty, real time with pause gameplay, and an open map to explore. The graphics are also decidedly old-school with a more pixelated art style than the aforementioned entries in the CRPG genre.
Serpent in the Staglands is a campaign within the world of Vol, a fully realized setting inspired by the late bronze age in a Transylvanian landscape, with unique politics, races and gods steeped in history. Featuring a chosen party of five, you take the role of Necholai, a minor god of a celestial body, who descends to the Staglands for a moonlit festival only to find his way home blocked and immortality slipping out of his grasp. Seeking answers and aid, he takes on a mortal body and the guise of a traveling Spicer.
