505 Games held its first digital showcase this morning and took a look at some indie games in its upcoming release calendar. The company announced three new games and a look at Eiyuden Chronicles: Rising.
The first game shown was Among the Trolls, a survival sim set in the Finnish jungle. The main character is trapped inside the forest and both must find a way to survive and please the trolls and other spirits inside the forest. In practice, it looks similar to other survival games, with mechanics being created and things being taken from the environment. However, the player will not be able to take resources haphazardly, or it will annoy the forest trolls.
Another new game is Stray Blade, a new Souls Like title. The hero is an ethnographer who accidentally takes another plane while searching for old fossils. They join a small fauna called Boji to save the world of Akriya. It is believed that a player’s choices will shape the world around them.
The third new game, which finally got a relatively short teaser trailer, is the Miyasma Chronicles. What we saw was the main character (or what I believe is the main character) and a robot mate facing some kind of dark portal. I can’t say what kind of gameplay the little thing I’ve seen will be. However, it is the work of Mutant Year Zero developer The Bearded Ladies.
Also 505 Games Eiyuden Chronicles: Rising, which launched last week. While it would have been more interesting to watch Hundred Heroes, the game for which Rising is a prequel, we haven’t seen it.
