Experience Post-Apocalyptic, Turn-Based Goodness in the Roguelike RPG, Bedlam


We covered the Kickstarter-funded indie RPG, Bedlam, in October of last year. Now, the game is shaping up nicely, and the team at Skyshine Games have revealed a new trailer.

Featured above, you can view the new trailer that publisher Versus Evil showed off at this year’s E3. The game is a roguelike RPG in which you play as “The Mechanic,” the last of your kind – a guild of engineers that controlled and maintained rolling fortresses known as “Dozers.”

The city of Bysantine is your starting point, from which you leave the protection of civilization for the dangerous, post-apocalyptic wasteland known as Bedlam. Your goal is to journey across the desert in search of a mythical utopia known as the Aztec City. Hopefully, you’ll be able to keep as much of your crew alive during your trip.

Here are the key features of the game:

  • A unique blitz battle system: Turn-based combat with swift play, over-the-top animations, action point based movement and attack system, environments and battles that gradually affect your team, crew-buffing Dozer upgrades, and tide-changing Dozer weapons!
  • Four unique enemy factions: Marauders, Mutants, Cyborgs and the A.I. – all with their own appearances and behaviors.
  • Rogue-like with RPG features: Randomly generated encounters and discoveries, meaningful permadeath, three different supplies to manage, crew veteran rankings and incredible replay value.
  • “Double-Down”: A New game+; Travel back through Bedlam for the opportunity to defeat merciless overlord King Viscera and his minions for untold riches… or sacrifice everything!

Bedlam is launching some time this fall on PC, via Steam.

    I really wanted to love the Banner Saga but in the end it was a very shallow experience despite the lovely work the artists put into it. This sounds much more promising and less like you’re stuck on tracks.

    I really love the art style. It is full of small and intricate details. It reminds me of the work of Geof Darrow.

    I want to be optimistic but I’m hearing the word “roguelike” a little too much.
