Death Trick: Double Blind, one of several RPGs Coming This Week

On this edition of RPGs Coming This Week: a new mystery game and a bevy of ports. Not the biggest bag of loot, but we still take those. Let’s get into it!

Death Trick: Double Blind – March 12th (Switch, Windows, macOS)

Death Trick: Double Blind, one of several RPGs Coming This Week

Need a mystery game heavy on the intrigue? Death Trick: Double Blind may hit just the spot. It’s a point-and-click adventure game where you play as two individuals—a magician and a detective—trying to figure out who killed a traveling circus’ top performer (who also happens to be a magician). The art style is reminiscent of classic circus fliers, and I especially dig the central conceit that you have limited time to search for clues daily, and you have the freedom to question whomever you want or investigate wherever you want. That mechanic alone gives Death Trick stakes that a more linear adventure game might lack.

To get it out of the way… yes, it’s giving Case 2-3 vibes, but superficially. I have a feeling Death Trick will be far superior to Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Justice for All‘s infamous middle chapter, which also happens to be set in a circus.

PC players (it’s available via Steam) can get it on March 12th, two days earlier than Nintendo Switch players.

Dungeon Drafters – March 14th (PS5, XSX, PS4, XB1, Switch)

The deckbuilder slash roguelite slash strategy RPG Dungeon Drafters is coming this week to consoles! Our own Jerry Williams praised the breadth of customization options but pushed back on what he saw as the developers essentially forcing players to play the game a certain way.

Ib (Remake) – March 14th (PS5, PS4)

The Ib remake is coming to PlayStation 5 and 4 this week! As far as remakes of RPG Maker games go, this is a faithful one, and it seems to preserve the atmosphere of the original well. Our own Des Miller has more to say about this classic in his review.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance – March 15th (Switch)

Kingdom Come: Deliverance hits the Switch this week, and anyone who wants to be transported back in time to feel what it was like to be a peasant in 1403 should check it out. The battle system is precise and punishing, but those with the will (and patience) to master it will be treated to a solid Elder Scrolls-like experience.

Rainbow Moon – March 15th (Switch)

Remember Rainbow Moon? This colorful strategy RPG from over a decade ago is getting a Switch release. It’ll probably play just like the PS4 and PS Vita versions, so consult our reviews for the lowdown.
