New Launch Trailer for Gothic Inspired CRPG Serpent in the Staglands

on May 23, 2015 4:58 PM

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┬áthe 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.
