Regions Of Ruin from Vox Games and Poysky Productions, a side-scrolling RPG with town-building is now available DRM-free on GOG. A nice reminder of it too, one we completely missed actually being properly released for Linux.

The developer did reach out back in 2017 to ask for help testing but it seems we completely lost track of it, as it did gain full Linux support.

They claim it's a little like the side-scroller Kingdom, only with more elements of an RPG. It does look good, so I'm surprised we did miss the main release. The developer also mentioned earlier this year that Regions of Ruin 2 is on the way, although they're also working on Meeple Station.

Looks fun. Yeah GOG is 90% off right now, but everyone else is normal at $11.99 which is still a good price.

This is one of my favorite games.

Maybe it's just me, but I have this instinctive feeling that the "side-scrolling" viewpoint puts some radical restrictions on the concept of "town-building" (and even on "RPG"). I mean we're talking about one and a half dimensions here--a side-scroller all pretty much takes place on a line, with OK a bit of texture on the line where you can go up and down a bit. How much town can you build?
