A deep, text-heavy strategic RPG is what awaits you in Vagrus - The Riven Realms and it's going to be hitting the big 1.0 on October 5 as it leaves Early Access.

You play as a Vagrus, a caravan leader who is tasked with travelling all over a completely ruined post-apocalyptic fantasy world that was completely messed up by humans and gods so now plenty of horrors await. It's a mixture of many types of gameplay. There's resource and people management, open-world exploration, trading, turn-based tactical battles and a whole lot of lore to read through.

The new date and trailer was announced during Gamescom, watch below:

Funded initially on Fig with an Open Access model, where funders got instant access to play the game. It was a big success there constantly hitting new milestones with it currently sitting on $183,397 funding. It's already won multiple awards too and it has a "Very Positive" rating on Steam so it seems overall during development it's done incredibly well.

You can buy it right now in Early Access on GOG and Steam.

Great! I've been waiting for this one for a while.

Hmmm, am I the only thinking that their voiceover guy somehow borked up the name of the game, of all things? I'm hearing "River Realms".

Definitely sounds like that's what he's saying. Wonder why nobody corrected it.

Might be intentional? In the context he could be referring to the area before it became desolate. But that's just me guessing...

In any case, the game looks quite interesting to me. A bit like Caravan from Daedalic, but with a combat system that seems to be more to my taste. The setting also has a certain Dark Sun vibe to it, which I really enjoyed playing Pen&Paper.

Yes, that's my thought, it looks interesting. And it seems they put a lot of work into it. That's why this seemed such a weird gaffe.
