Now that Road Not Taken is out in the wild, punishing gamers with its deceptively challenging puzzle-matching roguelike gameplay, indie developer Spry Fox is ready to start showing more about the next game the team has been working on for a year now.
Introducing Free-Range Dragons, a Wild West-themed flight action game about taming, riding and looting all manner of wild dragons. Cow dragons. Bug dragons. Wolf dragons. Any kind of dragon-animal hybrid is fair game. Right now Free-Range Dragons is only confirmed for PC/Mac, but other potential platforms are still being determined.
From the Spry Fox blog:
“Free-Range Dragons is all about the joy of movement. We’ve spent a ton of time experimenting with and refining the mechanics of flight in this game, as well as the mechanics of chasing and being chased by wild dragons. Your dragon can loft itself into the air slowly, or use the terrain to send itself rocketing. You have a flaming dash maneuver that can be used as both an attack and a tool for altering your trajectory. We’re still experimenting with a variety of additional attacks and powerups, like fireballs, flame breath, lassoing, and more.”
Here’s a trailer to show how all that translates to gameplay:
