French studio Spiders, creators of bad-but-also-good RPGs like The Technomancer, have a new game coming called Greedfall. It’s an alternate universe take on what a 17th century European invasion of the New World would look like if the colonizers ran into magic and giant monsters.

It’s aiming for a release on PC, Xbox One and PS4 in 2019.

I’ve always liked spiders RPGs. Even though their gameplay is often wonky in terms of story and writing it’s always fairly ambitious and well done.

So I’m glad they’re pushing into even weirder settings.
