Battlepaths is a top-down 2d RPG that plays like a roguelike and offers a sophisticated loot system as found in popular games like Torchlight and Diablo. Character development is very diverse, so you can play the type of hero you prefer. Be it a heavy damage dealer, a fast ninja build, a build that concentrates on using special powers, or something in between. Attributes, Skills, Items, and Weapon Specialization all play a significant role when building your character. Dozens of hours of hacking and looting await in three big realms that you can freely explore, along with a challenge realm to test your might. Combat is turn-based and requires you to find a good tacticthat suits your character build in difficult situations and of course, in challenging boss fights.

GRRRRR, stop making good games like this! Every weekend I end up picking up 2 or 3 more and I'm never going to make it more than a dozen or two hours into any of them.

Good looking game, I'll add it to my schedule.

Hi there! I decided to give this game a try and downloaded the Demo. But after Unzipping it and trying to run the "Battlepaths.exe" it just crashes. I even tried to re-download it if somehow the download didn't finish or something. Any ideas? =)

Yes, you need to have the XNA Framework Redistributable 4.0 and the .NET Framework 4 installed. These are linked in the readme, but of course, an installer that handles everything would be good. We'll be making one soon!

Surprisingly good action rpg. Behind the silly story and simple aesthetics lies a very solid game.
Has a Diablo-like loot system which is great, nice stats and skill system, lots of exploring and roaming, dungeons, tough enemies, puzzles and what not.

Gameplay to me feels like an old school Genesis a-rpg with a Diablo loot system, a good idea imho.
Very playable and very enjoyable if you're not put off by the graphics (personally i like them).
