New Throwback RPG Skald: Against the Black Priory Earns High Praise from Larian CEO Swen Vincke

Retro-style RPG Skald: Against the Black Priory has taken the gaming world by storm with its impressive gameplay and nostalgic vibes. Drawing inspiration from early CRPGs and the Ultima series, Skald has managed to capture the attention of Larian’s CEO Swen Vincke.

Vincke expressed his excitement for the game on Twitter, stating, “This is one I’ve been waiting for. I have nothing but respect for the ambitions here and I love how it looks.” He even revealed his plans to dedicate his entire flight to playing Skald during his trip to LA next week.

The game’s unique blend of Lovecraftian horror and classic fantasy RPG elements has garnered high praise from both Vincke and PC Gamer senior editor Robin Valentine. With its engaging RPG systems and tactical combat, Skald offers a fresh take on ’80s RPGs that inspired its creation.

Larian’s support for smaller studios is no secret, as they previously backed Blasphemous on Kickstarter without asking for anything in return. Skald’s rise to fame is a testament to the quality of indie games in the industry, and it’s definitely a title worth keeping an eye on for any RPG enthusiast.
