14 Upcoming cRPGS You Need To Look Out For

Stygian: Reign Of The Old Ones
Expected Release: Q4 2017 / Q1 2018

Stygian is nothing less than pure '90s RPG awesomeness distilled into Lovecraftian horror form. If you grew up on Infinity Engine games and turn-based fantasy strategy, you want in on this one.

An indie offering that was crowdfunded, Stygian takes the map exploration style and dialog system from Baldur's Gate, adds in the turn-based, grid combat of Heroes Of Might and Magic, and then pulls its story from the Cthulhu mythos. 

It's New England in the 1920s -- a favorite haunt of the mythos -- only this time around Cthulhu and the rest of the Old Ones have risen, and humanity is on its way out the door. 

Between the style and themes, I'm expecting this to be GOTY for me. If Cultic Games screws this up, I foresee the developers being sacrificed to Hastur by a horde of crazed gamers.
