    Developer Spearhead Games announced the sandbox RPG, Project Witchstone, will launch for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC in Q2 2020.

    View the announcement trailer below:


    Here is an overview of the game:

    Known for their innovation in video game narratives, Spearhead Games (Stories: The Path of DestiniesOmensight) intends to push the interactive storytelling further with adventures uniquely tailored to each player’s gameplay and dialogue decisions. In a living and reactive world, you will be offered unprecedented options to role-play your character and influence the environment, capturing the fun and freedom of a pen & paper RPG campaign.

    • A living world sandbox RPG with turn-based tactical combat.
    • Impact the state of the world with your decisions.
    • Gain a reputation or work from the shadows.

    Living World:

    The world you explore is alive, meaning that characters that inhabit this world go on with their daily lives and move around following a routine (from their workplace to their home, for example). They also own properties, have personalities, friends and enemies, likes and dislikes, appreciation towards you, allegiance to factions, perception of their surroundings, etc.

    Sandbox:

    Using actions common in RPGs (dialogue, combat, spells, abilities, stat checks, stealing, etc.) and less common ones (stealth, influence interface, etc.), you can interact, manipulate, and shape this world as you see fit. Our goal is to give you the freedom to live the adventure you want. No overarching pre-defined main story thread, you get to decide how you want to proceed.

    Want to frame a villager for theft or murder? Want to join a faction, become their leader, and destroy the other factions? Want to destroy the factions but scheme in a way that they never know you’re responsible? Want to become a treasure hunter instead? Maybe the best solution is to blow everything up?

    All of this is possible In our sandbox.

    How?

    With our systemic approach to narrative, tailored events will occur based on your previous actions. All crimes will result in law enforcement running an investigation and attempting to arrest the suspect. Any violent act committed against a faction will result in retaliation. Taking over someone’s house will work fine until the previous owner’s relatives or friends come to visit.

    These are some examples of the ripple effect you can cause in this world. And how you deal with the ripple effect will determine what happens after.

    View the announcement trailer below:


    Here is an overview of the game:

    Broken Delusion is an adventure game with a long, original story. Set in a fictional scientific city in the near future, players will be able to experience an otherworldly adventure. Players take on the role of the protagonist, who is both a regular high school student and top-class hacker. One day, “you” were messing around and created a person who does not exist in this world, which causes a major event…

    Key Features:

    • Raising Simulation – Create and raise virtual characters. As the character’s personality and details gradually fill out, what you created may not turn out to be strictly virtual.
    • Hacking System – Using his leading edge hacking skills, the protagonist controlled by the player will be able to break into any system and network that exists in this world. Hacking is nothing but a game for you.
    • Requests – During the game, the player will receive various help requests. While it is fine to ignore those requests, you can also use your skills to lend a hand.
