Via the Darklands email list, I discovered a Kickstarter project that looks pretty nifty: Serpent in the Staglands. The combat system looks heavily inspired by Darklands (which, as you may remember, I consider to be basically the best CRPG ever). Hard to tell if the rest of Serpent in the Staglands will follow Darklands’ beautiful design principles, but here’s hoping. And it’ll work on Linux! Looks like a great game and a worthy project.
