About

PARPG is a post-apocalyptic roleplaying game currently moving towards a second techdemo release.

Creative vision

PARPG is a grimly realistic isometric RPG that takes place in the nuclear winter induced frozen waste land of Scandinavia. It uses the FOSS engine FIFE and a customized RPG system. You would like to know about the game? Check out our creative vision.

Getting involved

If you consider to contribute to PARPG right now, the best starting point is the contribution section at the wiki that contains information for the ones who would like to support PARPG development.

As mentioned there: it’s a good idea to get in contact with the other developers early. The best way to do so, is to post an introduction at the forums and to have a chat with us at our IRC channel.

    PARPG is not meant to be a “new Fallout” game. It’s rather meant to be partially inspired by the first two games of the series. Other sources of inspiration are Planescape: Torment, Arcanum and the Realms of Arkania series. And these are just my influences. The other developers on the team are surely inspired by some other RPGs as well.

    Looking forward to PARPG – glad to hear someone is moving forward with a 2D isometric rpg – too many recent isometrics are 3D with a tilted camera, and it shows. Looking forward to following it closely!

    Good luck, team. I’ve played and enjoyed many of the Fallout series and really, I still think the inspirational game of all of them, Wasteland, was still one of the best games I’ve ever enjoyed. What made that game so great was that you could do so much with everything, including using every stat you had to solve problems. Up against a tough door? You could use your strength to bust it down, your lockpicking skill to pick it, your intelligence to figure a completely different way around it, etc. There were no boundaries. If you can bring that level of interaction to it, it would be a great leap backwards (as in, we did it 20 years ago on two floppies, but we can’t do it any more with all this new tech?)

    It would be a lot of work, so I just want to wish you luck with whatever path you follow and boundaries you set for yourself. I’ll be watching and hope I get to play a great game someday.

    P.S. I also loved Arcanum and Planescape:Torment. With this inspiration, how can you go wrong?!?

    I know you guys have ready idea. But maybe you can consider making Jeremiah (comic/tv series) theme like game.

    Other sources of inspiration are Planescape: Torment, Arcanum…

    …OK. If even half the team has as good taste as you do this game will be amongst the handful of titles I am actually anticipating. No mean feat considering how much I exemplify the PC Gaming Master Race™ crowd that Yahtzee despises. Hell, it was Yahtzee’s “glowing” review of The Witcher that sold me on it.
