The publishers of Hello Neighbor and SpeedrunnerstinyBuild, revealed a slew of announcements at this year's PAX West, including some new game reveals and additional news on some of their previously announced upcoming titles like Rapture Rejects and Secret Neighbor.

Before getting into the juicy details of these new games, there are some important updates to some titles that may be on your radar. 

The official Cyanide & Happiness game Rapture Rejects is officially available for pre-order, which gets you exclusive access to the private Alpha. The Alpha will be playable on weekends from Friday 12 p.m. to Monday at 10 a.m. PST. Putting a spin on the Battle Royal genre, Rapture Rejects is a top-down isometric shooter where the last man standing wins.

Party Hard 2, the sequel to the stealth strategy game about ruining parties, is hitting digital-shelves this Halloween. You can check out the new trailer here with its stellar soundtrack and deadly party poopers galore.

Joining the Halloween festivities is the Secret Neighbor open alpha. Part of the Hello Neighbor universe, Secret Neighbor is a multiplayer social horror game in the same vein as Friday the 13th. Set between the first and second act of Hello Neighbor, a group of kids tries sneaking into the neighbor's basement to find their friend except one of the kids is actually the neighbor in disguise. You can sign up for the alpha here.

Speaking of alpha builds, you can now sign up to test Pathologic 2 after the PAX West conference. A sequel to the 2005 psychological horror adventure game, Pathologic 2 opens up the setting to an open world town consumed by a deadly plague. The eerie teaser trailer shows a collapsing society who have lost all sense of hope. The narrative-driven survival thriller has players making difficult choices with no positive outcome in sight while deciding whether to win the affection of locals or lose their trust. You can sign up for the alpha on the Pathologic website now.

The first playable game out of the new releases will be HellpointDeveloped by Cradle Games, the Dark Souls-style sci-fi action RPG game is set in the aftermath of a massive quantic cataclysm. Fighting demons and space monsters along the way, you can play this game split-screen or online with your friends. The game is set to release in 2019 on PC, Xbox One, and PS4, and you can download a free demo on Steam now. Check out the announcement trailer while you're here.

Next up is a prequel and a new addition to the Hello Neighbor universe  Hello Neighbor: Hide & SeekComing this December, Hide & Seek tells the story of the creepy neighbors family before the events of the first game. You'll meet his wife and kids, and experience first hand what caused his life to fall into shambles. You can download the free alpha of the game now for PC.

Donning seven unique characters, a unique pixel-art style, and a compelling story, UnDungeon is a roguelike RPG game that has already raised €95,000 on Kickstarter since it debuted. Partnering with tinyBuild, developers Laughing Machines are set to release a demo to Kickstarter backers later this year. The game combines permadeath, loot-based RPG mechanics, and oozes of style and flair

The eccentric and odd minds behind Punch Club and Graveyard Keeper have created a new and anachronistic game called Swag and SorceryDescribed as a streamlined RPG where you can build your own village, the biggest appeal is creating and customize characters and sending them out to find new swag. Swag and Sorcery is set to release sometime in 2019 for PC.

Last but not least on the list is a quirky, stylish first-person zombie shooter Pandemic Express. The trailer shows players escaping hordes of zombies while traveling on a train, in the same spirit as The Final Station. Pandemic Express spawns players at a train station, where one person gets infected and turns into a zombie. Players must escape to the train to avoid getting infected or become infected themselves and swap sides. Backed up by some sweet 80's synthwave, the announcement trailer gives a solid idea of the parkour and action you can expect.

PAX West is still beginning and there's bound to be plenty of more announcements to come, so for the latest keep it at GameSkinny.

Most Anticipated RPGs on Kickstarter Right Now https://www.gameskinny.com/aj4jn/most-anticipated-rpgs-on-kickstarter-right-now https://www.gameskinny.com/aj4jn/most-anticipated-rpgs-on-kickstarter-right-now Fri, 13 Jan 2017 11:00:01 -0500 Zach Long

Kickstarter is a great way to get games made. It's brought us Pillars of Eternity, Wasteland 2, and Divinity: Original Sin. Now, it has the potential to bring us even more games.

But, what are the most anticipated RPGs that Kickstarter has right now? Let's find out!

A Hero's Call

This game is:

...an accessible PC game that brings the epic adventure of a traditional fantasy RPG to blind and sighted gamers alike.

The most interesting part about this game is that it is designed by blind gamers, for blind gamers. They are trying to make it accessible for sighted gamers as well. I think that the story sounds great and I think it would be unique to experience a game the way a blind gamer does. Having a game dedicated to the blind is unique and has me curious.

It has a very small budget of $2,850. It has already reached that goal, currently at $4,986, which is fantastic and I plan on keeping this one on my radar. It could give me a newfound admiration of what blind gamers have to go through in order to experience the same type of game that we sighted gamers take for granted.

Unknown Realm

Unknown Realm is looking to be a great classic RPG with some modern elements melded in. It's using the old style of 8-bit RPGs to tell a compelling story and give unique gameplay to a new generation of gamers that are growing up with hyper-realistic graphics. It seeks to give them an appreciation of where games have come from but still use some modern elements so it isn't completely different from more modern games. 

It has changing backgrounds, variant monsters based on season, fast-paced combat, and NPCs that react to your actions, just to name a few of its features. Currently at $90,857, it is well above its initial goal of $65,536. However there is a list of stretch goals that goes up to $200,000. You still have six days to back it and get the game for as little as $25.

UnDungeon

The only one of the three that has yet to hit its goal, but definitely deserves to do so. Taking it back to a more stylized pixel art, UnDungeon seeks to tell a story of a multiverse wherein the player takes the role of one of seven Heralds. In this role the player must travel throughout the multiverse fighting, trading, and chatting its way to find the power of the Core.

A fast-paced, top-down, action RPG, you move through the world quickly and fight with rapid movements. By utilizing artifacts and amplifiers, the Herald can adapt to any situation. Who knows what happens once you get through the procedurally generated map? That's for you to find out. Head on over to their page and help them reach their goal of $53,000. As of the writing of this article they are only at $22,713 with 31 days left to go.

These are all great-looking RPGs worth checking out on Kickstarter. Let me know what you think of the above games and if you know of any other RPGs that deserve attention.
