Side-scrolling town-building RPG Regions of Ruin has a release date on consoles. Vox Games' pixel adventure will hit PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on December 23rd, just in time for the holiday season.
In addition to launching the game on consoles, Vox says work on the sequel is "underway". We don't have any details about it yet, so we'll bring you some as soon as we do. Vox says the Switch port of Regions of Ruin was handled by Spanish studio Jandusoft. That studio also did porting work on Coffee Crisis and Rise and Shine, so if you've played either of those then you know what to expect from the console version of Regions of Ruin quality-wise. You can check out the original PC release trailer for Regions of Ruin below:
Regions of Ruin's Steam page describes it as "if Kingdom met a broad, skill-based open world RPG". Your job is to explore the world around you, expand your settlement, and battle off dangers that threaten the dwarven race with extinction. The further you go into the game's world, the more you'll be challenged, so you'd better hope your equipment and skills are up to snuff.
According to Vox, the game features no procedural generation or random elements; everything's been crafted by hand for you to discover. Your settlement will grow as you recruit dwarves, specialize your skills, and send your workers out to harvest resources from regions you've explored. All in all, it seems like fans of games like Kingdom and Terraria will like this one, especially if you want those games with a dash of Bethesda-style open-world RPG gameplay.
