Klei Entertainment have just announced an RPG: Griftlands.
Not content with continuing to work on Oxygen Not Included, the studio has decided that they want to make an RPG with a rather striking cartoony-but-gritty art-style, reminiscent of their earlier work on Shank. Judging by the trailer it seems to be an RPG with turn-based combat, and judging by the Steam page it’s a game in which “everything is negotiable: money, loyalty – even morality.”
You can have a gander at the rather lovely announcement trailer below, as well as a handful of screenshots. Griftlands is due out in late 2017/early 2018, which knowing them probably means we’ll be seeing it in Early Access later this year.
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 about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning 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.
