Welcome to “the Best of the last week” As usual, here is where we report all the most relevant news of the last week from the world of turn-based games. The month of January has now passed bringing several important releases but it is in February that things get hot and our Hardcase has prepared a list dedicated to all the releases of this month.
I remind you that we are always looking for collaborators for our blog. If you want to be part of our team you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact me on Twitter.
Before starting, I wish you a wonderful day and a glorious week.
February 2020 releases
A detailed work by Hardcase with all the February releases. With links and trailers. For sure in February there will be two important Early Access releases, one is Urtuk and the other one is Stoneshard. The first one is a tactical turn-based RPG with open-world features, set in a dark fantasy universe. About Stoneshard we wrote a lot in the past and in my humble opinion, it will be one of the most outstanding Open World RPG of this year. Check it here
