I caught a squib on RPG Watch about a game called Age of Decadence. It’s an RPG in development by an independent company called Iron Tower.

I read the piece on RPG Vault, actually pieces, since there is also a two-part interview, then buzzed over to the Iron Tower’s site. There is no ETA for the game, and since this is December, likely it will show up next year some time.

Now, we all know that many games sound good in the interviews and let us down when we play them. However, I do have some hopes for this one. For one thing, they said the magic words:

Turn-Based-Combat!

Yes, this is a solo outing, but, like Fallout, fighting will be turn-based. I like these guys already!

They also had something else to say about your actions in the game: C-o-n-s-e-q-u-e-n-c-e-s. What you do (or don’t do) really matters. Quests aren’t just there to pad things out, and there will be reactions according to your actions.

I suggest reading the material on RPG Vault, and then heading over to the main website for further information. For some reasons, other interviews they’ve done are in the “Press” section.
