    Default Retro 2D ORPGs?

    Are there any out there with a solid community aside from EverEmber or Secrets of Grindea? Something with tons of loot and that's just genuinely appealing in terms of graphics (clean, shaven instead of blocky textures) would be nice to research a bit more in to.

    Was going to say elderlands too but it was already posted. This game has by far, the best community I've experienced, spanning a decade now.

    I swear I've heard/seen this game before and it looks brilliant; shame it's still in development. Can anyone link me the most recent post regarding a potential release period?

    Everlands appears to be a pretty nifty combination of new and old elements, I'll have to try to remember to watch for it to go OB.

    I'm not sure if you are opposed to Ultima Online but I recently found a super nice server that combines the best elements of each era plus has very cool customized systems. Very great old school feel.
