Death’s Apprentice coming to consoles in early 2013

Sep 5, 2012

BGG Productions, an indie developer based in Dekalb County, Alabama , in collaboration with BioGamer Girl, have today announced that their hit PC title Death’s Apprentice will be available for the Xbox 360 and  the PS3 in early 2013, and the forthcoming Wii U console in 2015.

Death’s Apprentice features a battle system similar to what is used in many classic JRPGs and tells the story of planet Barron, a world where Death is on a permanent hiatus ; anyone or anything can survive any type of injury or disease. The circle of life has come to a complete stop, and many city streets are filled with chaos. To make matters worse, Mother Nature soon learns death no longer applies to them as well, and many rural cities are overrun by creatures of all sorts, as they have no need to fear man any longer. Fortunately for the world, Death had been training a new apprentice for some time before his disappearance. Although the young apprentice’s powers do not rival those of his master, he still wields the power to take away life from any person or creature that has been weakened enough, and sets off on a journey to discover what happened to his former master and restore order to the land.

According to BGG Productions the console version will include many new features like multiplayer support for up to four players. The game will be available soon for pre-order in two editions: the standard edition ($59.99) and the Limited Collector’s Edition ($79.99).

    I'm very disappointed to hear that they would do such a treacherous thing. Being an indie developer used to mean something. I guess it just means being money hungry and greedy. Through in unoriginal and lazy.

    This is some form of joke, right? The game's using the default (freeware) RPGMaker sprites and tilesets, and they haven't even arranged them correctly anyway so the map just looks completely flat.
    Yeah, this is probably just a parody of those really lazy retro games the industry is churning out recently – that's definitely it.

  4. seriouslly, this was made on RPGmaker and is most certainly NOT worth 60 bucks. The author claims to have been developing it since 92, I can see that person writing the plot then. but the engine is unmistakeably RPGMaker, heck, the grapics are the default ones, the system is the default one, the font is the default one… one would think someone would double check these basic stuff before saying this is an actual game release.
