We had another look at Stygian at at Gamescom and this second time it still appears to be a good game and it is going to be released soon.

Stygian takes place in an alternative Lovecraftian history of the 1920's in New England in the fictional town of Arkham. The game starts with you creating your character from eight different archetypes, together with the other character building options, you should be able to create the character you want. This could be important because the way you have built your character and the choices you make during the game, will have an influence on the reactions of the NPCs in the game. Some might no longer talk to you or some might like you even better than they did before. As a result, the choices you make in the game will lead to one of the possible endings.
More information.

They have done serious graphics design work on the GUI, on the character portraits. Less on the full figure characters & monsters. Still they deserve what they get on Steam.

Although it's over a year old and pretty rough, I imagine, compared to the finished product.

According to the devs a full run only takes up 12 to 15 hours. Disappointing... (And yes the game has mutiple endings and lots of replayability but still...)
