Stockholm, Sweden, Black Voyage Games is thrilled to announce its participation at the Steam Next Fest with a brand-new gameplay trailer. This eagerly awaited event will feature Lost In The Open, offering gamers around the globe a first look at its unique gameplay mechanics and immersive world through an exclusive trailer. Players can dive into this tactical RPG through a free playable demo, available from today until the end of the fest on June 17th.

We’ve taken the buttload of feedback we got from previous festivals and G.Round, soaked it all up to deliver the best experience yet of Lost In The Open on Steam Next Fest. We are very excited to show off our demo on Steam’s largest festival – check it out!”, shared the Black Voyage Games team.

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. 

Lost In The Open offers a challenging experience where every decision matters. From engaging in risky combat to accepting bribes, each node presents narrative choices that shape your fate. To survive, you’ll need to navigate strategically, defeat enemies, help strangers, and trade with merchants to unlock abilities, upgrade your equipment, and recruit loyal bodyguards. Are you ready for rigorous combat where you determine the course of the adventure?

Don’t miss out on this chance to get an early look at Lost In The Open: 

Key elements:

  • Node-based exploration meets brutal tactical RPG combat keeping a player always on the edge of survival.

  • Roguelike with randomized world, progression and encounters.

  • Complex and mature narrative tightly integrated with gameplay.

  • Parchment and Quill artstyle which is heavily inspired by authentic artwork and illustrations from the middle ages but with a modern flair.

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 completely against predatory monetization strategies, as seen in big studios and countless mobile games. Part of our goal is to develop games with depth and story to make a positive impact on people, rather than fueling issues like addiction and gambling. Releasing Premium games only (not F2P or P2W) 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.
