23. Exanima

Examina Gameplay Trailer

Explore, fight, survive and unravel the mysteries of the underworld in this unforgiving 3D isometric RPG set in an original dark, low fantasy world.

Currently available for steam early release, Exanima is an Isometric RPG like no other. Of all the games on this list no game quite pushes the possibilities of immersive top down combat.

Emphasising realism, environmental interaction and tense dungeon combat, this unflinchingly dark and beautifully original indie title is not one to be missed.

Frankly, images cannot do this game enough justice so we recommend heading over to the games steam page and checking out one of the gameplay trailers for yourself.

Torment: Tides of Numenera, successor to the critically acclaimed Planescape: Torment is one to check out if you haven’t already.

Featuring one of the most unique RPG environments to date, travel to the earth of the far future to unlock the mysteries of the ninth world as you uncover the mysterious god whose every death leaves behind new life.

I’m a huge fan of consequence and choices in RPG games and Torment does not fail to deliver, but still manages to deliver a fantastic combat system that combines combat, story development and puzzles into one experience that is not to be missed.
