MalTheDestroyer's News


Remember Telepath RPG? I've been working on its successor, Telepath Tactics, for a while now. I put it up on Kickstarter a few weeks ago, and we're now in the final week!

Like the Telepath RPGs, Telepath Tactics is a strategy RPG--but there's a lot of new, really awesome additions. You can shove enemies into water or water, where they will start to drown or burn; you can fling enemies of off cliffs; you can build bridges and lay down barricades; and just about everything on the map is destructible, from trees to doors to walls. Check it out:

This game is on Kickstarter for 6 more days. $10 gets you a pre-order for its release next year; $25 gets you the game right away, to play as I continue working on it; and $50 gets you all that plus immediate access to the map editor. (Did I mention that it has a map editor that lets you create your own custom campaigns? It sure does!)

There's less than a week left--come join us and help back this game!

Telepath Tactics: a new strategy RPG in Flash!



Hey folks! Do you enjoy turn-based tactics? Then you're going to love Telepath Tactics, the latest in the Telepath series!

Featuring a brand new engine with beautiful pixel art, new mechanics, an awesome single player campaign, 2-6 player multiplayer and mod support, Telepath Tactics is pretty much the greatest thing to happen to turn-based tactics since the invention of squares on a board.

Just watch this video if you don't believe me!

I'm currently running a Kickstarter campaign to drum up some funding to improve the game's graphics, get sound effects and music, and basically finish this thing in style. If you like what you see, head on over and back Telepath Tactics at $25 or more to get early access to the full game as I continue developing it!

New strategy RPG: Telepath Tactics!


Telepath RPG: Servants of God is out!

Happy Valentine's Day! You guys remember Telepath RPG Chapter 2, right? Well, I love you guys so much, I decided to release a new game in the series just for you:

Get the Telepath RPG: Servants of God demo; then buy the full game to unlock it.

"I am honestly surprised by the amount of dialogue in Telepath RPG, and at how well it is presented. Ideas are explored that most games ignore, such as how it feels to take someone's life and how it is represented inside the mind."
-Rick B., Indie Theory

"At heart, it's a turn-based tactical RPG that feels like what a game of chess would be like if each piece had a big character sheet of RPG stats to take into consideration. Stern must have played a lot of Shining Force and Final Fantasy Tactics as a kid, as he knows how to exploit the mechanics of this kind of combat to demand strategic and thoughtful thinking from the player."
-George Weidman, TruePCGaming

"It's a solid SRPG with a compelling story that should win over traditional tabletop wargamers, as well as anyone who enjoyed Disgaea or Final Fantasy Tactics.... Small strategic details like flank attacks and ranged weapon usage are exactly right. The conflict that drives the game is worldly and political, but the main character's quest is a personal one about family. There's even an in-game explanation for why you're able to see the position of every fighter on the battlefield, which is a detail that isn't usually addressed in an SRPG of any type or setting. What's most inspiring about the game is the novelty of the setting, which never seems to wear itself out."
-The Indie Mine

Telepath RPG composer Tomfoolio has just come out with a couple sweet tracks that are going into Telepath RPG Chapter 3. You can check 'em out here:

http://www.sinisterdesign.net/TRPG3Mus icPlayer.html

The player will be updated with new tracks as I get 'em. In the meantime, have you checked out Telepath: Psy Arena 2 lately? There's already three full leagues, a whole bunch of classes you can choose from to build your team, buyable orbs, and randomly generated training battles.

The Psy Arena 2 build-a-battle contest (mentioned in my last news update) is still going on, so create a map annd head on over to the Sinister Design Forums to submit your best creation for a chance at getting it in the game!

New Telepath Music + Psy Arena 2!



It's time to start work on the second installment of Psy Arena, what with the many improvements to the game engine since the last one. In Psy Arena 2, the player will be able to build his or her own team from scratch, hiring units as desired. (There will be a slave market that the player can draw from.)

Over the next two months, we will be accepting battle map submissions from users. The very best maps will be included in the final game, and if yours is chosen, your name will appear in the credits to the game!

To submit maps for consideration, please design them in the TRPG3 Map Editorand post them here on the Sinister Design forums.

...

In other news, Telepath RPG Chapter 3 now has three full missions, plus the prologue, as well as a brand-new playable character who may choose to join you once you've finished Mission 3. Work on the game continues, and of course, you can play the latest updated version right here.
