Basilisk Games To Go Sci-Fi With Next RPG?
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

In a recent discussion on the official forums a Basilisk Games representative revealed the company is considering releasing a sci-fi based role playing game sometime after completion of Eschalon: Book II. The "old school" game will not feature any magical or mystical elements and will not be post-apocalyptic.

We have another engine (it's true 3D, but mechanically it functions like an advanced Dungeon Master / Eye of the Beholder first-person engine) that we've been working with for quite some time. We have a storyline, some game mechanics in place, and even a title logo. It will be hard-line sci-fi (meaning no magic or voodoo like "the force", although it will feature fringe science). It will not be post-apocalyptic. We are drawing inspiration from an existing "old-school" sci-fi RPG from way back.
That is absolutely all I will say, other than we are considering taking a break between Book II and III to finish this game that I speak of. For now though, we are all about Book II!!
Yesterday Basilisk Games announced work on Eschalon: Book II, which should be released in 2009. Follow the links below for more information about all the company's projects.
