GameTunnel have created a list of their best five indie rpgs of 2008. The list includes ‘Kivi’s Underworld’, ‘Savage 2: A Tortured Soul’, ‘Avernum 5′, ‘Mount and Blade’ and ‘The Spirit Engine 2′.

Between them they represent the best that is currently on offer in the form of RPGs developed by independant studios and I will be looking at all of these and a lot of other indie pc rpg games in the coming months.

‘Kivi’s Underworld’ is a light rpg that is easy to pick up, play for 15 to 30 minutes and then put down again.  ‘Savage 2′ is an online PvP game, while ‘Avernum 5′ is an rpg in the classic sense – dozens of hours of questing through an elaborate storyline.  ‘Mount and Blade’ is a freeform, combat-oriented game.  Finally, ‘The Spirit Engine 2′ is a beautiful 2d side-scroller, with a deep storyline and fantastic character interactions.

If you are a fan of rpg games then you definitely owe it to yourself to have a look at the games listed.  Let us know if GameTunnel have missed your favourite pc rpg game, or, if you have played any these games, let us know your thoughts about them.
