Think I'll try playing games just for myself before bed, been meaning to get around to Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones all weekend.

I do like how the game has a pretty robust character creation, and the handdrawn artstyle works so well for the portraits, it oozes character.

I really do love the artwork in this game, it's really impressive.

Gods damn, this game is gorgeous.

Combat's a bit on the clunky side, but fairly standard turn-based affair.

I'm investingating a very Lovecraftian mystery, for sure!

Y'know, I see the criticisms.

I've already had it crash once on me out of the blue, it feels sluggish and seems to stutter and even freeze for a second, so it's definitely got issues that need ironing out. But damn, it's really quite a unique and immersive RPG, I'm enjoying it!

I think it'll probably be going on my curator page, once I've had a few more hours with it, but with caveats aside, I'd give it a thumbs up. It's absolutely dripping with atmosphere, worldbuilding, and character.

And there's a demo to try out!
