Anyone who's into old-school RPGs like Baldur's Gate or Planescape: Torment would be well advised to check out this highly impressive indie take on the genre. It's got pretty much everything you need in such a game, with its well-realized, open-ended world, heaps of customization and great sense of adventure. It's also rock-hard but if that doesn't bother you, you're in for a great time. The story takes place in a stunningly implemented world inspired by the mystery of Transylvania, and sees you in the role of a minor god who is losing his immortality and who must enter a mortal body in order to find out what's going on. Similar to other such RPGs, you'll explore strange lands, build up your party, engage in combat and magic, and investigate all sorts of unusual artifacts and locations. This one doesn't hold your hand for you, with features such as auto-mapping conspicuous by their absence, while the story is almost entirely non-linear and which unfolds through your own choices, leaving you responsible for uncovering the world's secrets. Serpent in the Staglands is not a game for the novice RPG player, but if you've got some of the tougher ones under your belt, then this is going to be your new best friend. It's obviously an indie game, with visuals that are a little lacking in flash, although they do have a lot of style. However, it's in the depth of gameplay where this really shines, and the world created here is an undeniably fascinating one, with heaps of depth and an obvious sense of care and attention to pretty much every detail. If you like your old-school RPGs, then this needs to be in your collection.
