Moving along, we turn to a genre that I was never a fan of, and it would take a pair of ARPG designers and their first game at their new studio to wow me.
For #9 we have another surprise title: An ARPG developed by a studio known for City builders.
Rebel Galaxy marks the first game from studio Double Damage Games whose co-founders originally helped form Runic Games, the makers behind the hit Torchlight. With Rebel Galaxy, they’ve traded in the ARPG genre for the open world Space sim with a game that manages to combine the best of the two genres for a game that newcomers and fans can enjoy.
Victor Vran recently came out of early access and is an attempt by developer Haemimont Games to take on the big boys of the ARPG genre. While the game may not look like much when compared to Diablo 3 or Grim Dawn, there are a lot of great things under the hood that make this game very interesting.
