Stockholm, Sweden – Black Voyage Games is thrilled to announce Lost In The Open‘s new demo at Steam Next Fest, promising an unforgettable experience for all players in attendance. Embark on a journey where every decision is crucial – face demanding battles, take risks, and forge strategic alliances. From negotiating with traders to recruiting loyal allies, each decision shapes the course of your adventure. Are you ready to take on the challenge? The demo will be available at Steam Next Fest until its end on June 17th.

Lost In The Open is a masterfully crafted roguelike, low-fantasy tactical RPG that plunges players into the heart of a dark and unforgiving no man’s land. Following an unexpected assassination plot, you find yourself wounded, alone, and on the run across a treacherous soil. Survival in this harsh world is not guaranteed; it requires strategic recruitment, desperate battle, and a journey of sincere repentance. Your King is your most powerful asset but also your greatest liability. How you control the King will determine whether you survive or perish. 

“All the feedback we got from playtesting and previous festivals has culminated in a strong gameplay-focused demo for Steam Next Fest, the largest festival on Steam. Play it and let us know if you defeated the final boss (screenshot or it didn’t happen!)”, stated Black Voyage Games with enthusiasm.

About Black Voyage Games

Embark on a voyage through pitch black darkness with Black Voyage Games: Where atmosphere meets honest, gritty play.

Started in 2021, Black Voyage Games is an international indie game studio. The goal of the studio is to take players on a voyage through the pitch-black night. As a result, our games are immersed in a dark, gritty, and ambivalent atmosphere. Our mission is to evoke thought and emotion by exposing players to tough decisions and overwhelming odds. We want players to immerse themselves deeply and attempt to sail on, despite the circumstances. Our studio is against predatory monetization strategies. Part of our goal is to develop games with depth and story to make a positive impact. Releasing Premium games only is a must for all BVG games.

“Lost in the Open” is our first title and an upcoming game scheduled to launch on Steam in 2024. It is a turn-based tactical RPG where you scramble to escape from an assassination attempt in an atmospheric, low-fantasy, procedurally generated medieval world. “Lost In The Open” can be described as Battle Brothers meets FTL: Faster Than Light, with art style inspiration from real medieval art. A playable demo is available on Steam today.
