What's become quite an ongoing indie success story is Vagrus - The Riven Realms, an incredibly interesting post-apocalyptic fantasy RPG-strategy hybrid.

"Vagrus is an award-winning roleplaying game with a narrative focus, open-world exploration, and strong elements of strategy. The player takes the role of a vagrus - a caravan leader who strives to survive in a strange and dangerous dark fantasy world by leading a traveling company on all kinds of ventures."

A game that's been featured here on GOL a few times, and with good reason. The amount of promise it shows is ridiculous, especially if you love games with deep lore and lots to explore. Lost Pilgrims Studio have been funding their game on Fig for over a year, using a hybrid model of Early Access / Crowdfunding where you get instant access. This campaign has now passed $100,000 and continues to rise as they pull in funding to work on new features.

It formally entered Early Access on Steam and GOG back in July and it appears to be a small hit there too. On GOG it's gained 4 / 5 stars and on Steam they've managed to hit the essential Very Positive user rating from close to a 100 posts, a rating that's needed to keep Steam's almighty algorithm happy.

As a narrative-heavy game, you need to enjoy reading for pleasure. Personally, I think it's fantastic that we have such a ridiculous variety in our gaming. From fast-paced action to slow-burn games like this. I've played quite a lot of Vagrus myself and thoroughly enjoy the atmosphere and great design, the writing is definitely interesting too. Vagrus is a bit of a deep hole to fall into too, as it sprinkles in more and more game mechanics as you travel across the lands. Dealing with random encounters, keeping your people happy and paid, turn-based combat, visiting and interacting with different locations to pick up cargo and more. Lots to see already.

You can find Vagrus - The Riven Realms now on GOG, Steam and Fig.
