Brian Fargo returns to and resurrects his late 80s/early 90s dungeon crawling series The Bard’s Tale with the crowdfunded The Bard’s Tale IV: Barrows Deep at InXile. Unlike 2002’s Bard’s Tale, this is a proper sequel to the first three games and takes place in the distant future for everyone’s return to the world of The Bard’s Tale with The Bard’s Tale IV: Barrows Deep.

Here’s a description from the Steam Store Page:

Over one hundred years later, the terrible events of Skara Brae’s violent destruction are nearly forgotten. Hidden in the shadows, an evil has waited patiently. Until now. Fanatics are gathering control, the famous Adventurer’s Guild has been outlawed and its members persecuted, and you must rise up in defiance to become the hero that the realm needs. Featuring 40+ hours of gameplay, 350 speaking parts, and over 100 pieces of incredible music.
