SKALD: Against The Black Priory is definitely one of the most interesting games in the indie scene. It’s a retro-style party-based tactical RPG that blends fantasy elements with a dark world inhabited by Lovecraftian creatures. The Game should arrive later this year on PC via Steam, but in the meantime, you can play the available demo on Steam which is regularly updated, introducing new stuff and improvements.
We (Me) just played it, and below you can find the Video Gameplay.
