Book of Demons is an upcoming paper styled hack and slash

Book of Demons is an upcoming indie ARPG, seemingly inspired by Diablo, and presented in a lovely paper-craft aesthetic, one of the rare few games on PC to adopt such a style.

Much like Diablo, Book of Demons asks of you to venture deep beneath the city, through randomly generated catacombs and caverns, in order to reach hell itself and bring righteous fury against the cardboard devil. Here's the trailer which comes in the form of a poem, and a bit more information:

Legion TD 2 is an upcoming tower defense game with a twist

This is shaping up to be a great month for fans of Warcraft 3 custom maps as Element TD was recently ported over to Dota 2, and the equally popular Legion TD is now getting a standalone sequel.

Legion TD 2 is a multiplayer, free-to-play tower defense game that combines all of the elements thousands, if not millions, have come to love with the original, but without any of the restraints of the now ancient Warcraft 3 engine. Here's the brief trailer and some more information:

Thumper is an indie action-rhythm game

Thumper is an action-rhythm game that's all about ludicrous speeds and violent collisions, but if that wasn't already a child's biggest wish it also stars a sleek, metallic space insect.

It was announced way back, in the ancient times of 2013, and after going through numerous delays the release date for this galactic beetle has finally been pinned down for 2016. Here's the strangely stressful, but exciting trailer and a bit more information:

Battlerite is a spiritual successor to BLC

Bloodline Champions was an impeccably well balanced, team orientated arena brawler that featured a unique cast of characters, skill based fighting and enough depth to keep even the most hardcore of players invested. Nowadays, mostly due to publisher greed and some unfortunate timing, it has become a ghost town of poorly executed microtransactions and power creep.

However, not all is lost as Stunlock Studios (the folks behind the original Bloodline Champions) are now making a spiritual successor by the name of Battlerite. Here's the trailer, and if you've ever played BLC prepare to be excited beyond measure:

Overload is a spiritual successor to Descent

Descent, for those of you that might not have an encyclopedic knowledge of old PC shooters, was an innovative and incredibly fun first person shooter with six degrees of freedom, meaning you could move in all directions and even fly around upside-down.

The reason I'm mentioning it now is because Overload, a spiritual successor to Descent, has just released a playable teaser showcasing everything many have come to love about the original game. Here's the trailer and the download link:

Bannerman is a medieval hack and slash

Bannerman is a medieval action-adventure with challenging combat, rotoscoped 16-bit visuals and a character who seems content to simply stroll along the battlefield at a leisurely pace.

It is being made by a solo developer and aims to explore the darker side of medieval fantasy, one without knights in shining armor and camaraderie between battle-brothers. Here's the trailer and a bit more information, though do be warned, the music will be stuck in your head for far longer than you might expect:

Path of Exile: Ascendancy is now live

Path of Exile is, in my humble opinion, the best ARPG out there and with the recently released Ascendancy expansion it has surpassed even its previous heights.

Ascendancy brought with it a daily randomized dungeon, a rework of the already massive and complex skill tree, new ascendancy classes, plenty of new skills, support gems and so much more. Here's the trailer, just in case you missed it, along with my first impressions of the new content:

Copper Dreams is a cyberpunk RPG

Ever since I first tasted the old Fallout games I've fallen in love with classical RPGs, especially those that deal with post apocalyptic scenarios and somewhat serious themes, such as the recently release Underrail.

The reason I'm mentioning this now is because Copper Dreams, a gritty cyberpunk combat RPG set in a hellhole of a city, has been announced through a very intriguing trailer. Have a look:

Radial-G is an Oculus Rift racing game

With both the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift arriving in the not so distant future many of the upcoming VR focused games have started moving towards their full release as well.

One such game is Radial-G, a futuristic racer with little respect for gravity, which after being in Early Access for over a year is now ready to be officially released. Here's the launch trailer and a bit more info:

Samorost 3 is coming to Steam on March 24th

Amanita Designs, the folks behind the masterfully done point&click adventures Botanicula and Machinarium have announced that their latest game, Samorost 3, will be coming to Steam in March.

Samorost 3 is a loose continuation of two small web games, Samorost 1 (which is free) and Samorost 2 (which is currently €5/$5 on Steam), as well as the developers most ambitious project yet given that it took over 5 years to complete. Here's the trailer and a bit more information:
