I’m a fan of RPG videogames and while some might assume that would mean I have a heart for table top roleplaying, it sadly does not. I’ve had a few experiences trying them, and while fun they go on way too long and I just don’t find myself as stimulated. So what would happen if there was a game that presented itself as a table top sci-fi experience but rolled into a classic turn based videogame? The answer is surprisingly good, though with some problems.
Behold Studios have been hard at work on their next game, Galaxy of Pen and Paper, but it hasn’t stopped them from improving Chroma Squad now.
Ever since the debut of “Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers” in 1993, it has been a cultural phenomenon, with the series still in production today. Surprisingly, there hasn’t been a Power Rangers game on a platform outside of the Nintendo 3DS in recent years. Behold Games somewhat fills in that gap with Chroma Squad, a tactical RPG with managerial elements that makes for a very entertaining game, if not a bit light on nearly every aspect of playing the game.
Paradox Interactive, a publisher and developer with plenty of initiative, today announced the forthcoming release of Knights of Pen & Paper 2, coming to PC, iOS, and Android devices. Knights of Pen & Paper 2, the appropriately named sequel to Knights of Pen & Paper +1 Edition, will bring players back to the table, where they can sit and simulate another, different table inside the game (which is about a game). Danger, intrigue, death, role-playing, and roll-playing will return when Knights of Pen & Paper 2 arrives on May 14th.
