One of my favorite indie developers is Soldak Entertainment, and perhaps my favorite game (I actually like all four) is Depths of Peril. DoP is a game where your choices have consequences, and the rest of the world continues even if you ignore your quests. This ‘indie classic’ Depths of Peril is now available DRM-Free on GOG.com for only $9.99!
Depths of Peril Features:
• Unique blend of action RPG with strategy elements.
• Navigate relationships with enemy factions using diplomacy, trade, to war, and raids.
• Random and dynamic world, in which your decisions have real consequences.
Here is the description from the GoG blog:
Soldak Entertainment, the developer of Depths of Peril, is one of these little studios that showcase what indie game development can be. It was founded in 2004 by Steven Peeler who left his position as the Technical Director at Ritual Entertainment, to work on his own RPG title. He succeeded. Three years later Depths of Peril was complete.
As Steven says on his company homepage, Soldak Entertainment focuses on bringing new and unique gameplay to the entertainment industry. Seeing how Depths of Peril mixes the evergreen top-down action RPG gameplay with strategic elements that require the player to lead a tribe of barbarians and maintain diplomatic relations with other factions, one can only congratulate Soldak on a job well done. New and unique gameplay it is!
Highly recommended if you’re looking for something fresh, even though Depths of Peril is old enough to fall into the growing “indie classic” category.
