Deathfire: Ruins of Nevermore looks rather pretty

DeathfireLighting02-05

G3 Studios have released a couple of new screenshots from the forthcoming Deathfire: Ruins of Nevermore, and it’s looking rather tasty.

Deathfire is a first-person, party-based RPG with turn-based combat and a focus on story and character development, which makes it sound rather like a classic CRPG to me. Perhaps not a surprise considering that G3 Studios is headed up by Guido Henkel, a veteran developer who previously worked on little bits and pieces like Fallout 2, Planescape: Torment, and the Realms of Arkania trilogy.

These screens come from a bloggy update on the official site, with the team announcing a few new hires – Brazilian comic book artist (who worked on League of Legends) Adriano Batista, and veteran developers Thomas Kronenberg and Michael Flad, each of whom have worked on a fair few RPGs in their time. Gothic 3, Shadows over Riva, Sacred

Check the screens out out above and below. I have to admit, Deathfire: Ruins of Nevermore is starting to look like something to keep an eye on.

    Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.

      This looks good, but is it a point and click adventure RPG or are we talking more first person Skyrim style movement with Neverwinter party elements?

      I think its more like Legends of Grimrock or another Dungeon Master Clone.
