About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

'The Unliving' Gets Early Access Date, Demo Available Now - Trailer

The Unliving is dark fantasy action role-playing game that combines roguelite and real-time strategy gameplay for a new spin on the RPG genre.

The realm of the living has been corrupted to its core and a storm is coming to change the world order. This storm is you, a mighty Necromancer, a sorcerer who denies death and leads the legions of the dead. Clerics and lords hope to hide behind high walls, but there’s no stronghold to cover them from your wrath. Smite hundreds of those standing in your way and turn them into your tools on the way to a greater purpose.

The Unliving is a dynamic rogue-lite action RPG with strategic elements. Raise the undead, use numerous spells and explore a mystical world, all realised with darkly extravagant pixel-art.

In The Unliving, players wield the dark art of necromancy to command a growing army of the undead through a mystical world, wreaking havoc across humanity’s domains and turning fallen enemies into morbid servants. While the Necromancer may control the undead even he cannot escape death; with each reincarnation, players must learn from their mistakes, forge new strategies, and overcome the living, all while trying to unravel the secrets buried deep in forgotten corners of the world of The Unliving.

The Unliving demo is available during Steam Next Fest 2022, from June 13-20, 2022.
