Indie publisher Versus Evil has announced the games it plans to show off during E3, including four indie RPGs. Stoic's The Banner Saga 2, Gambrinous' Guild of Dungeoneering, Tangrin Entertainment's Kyn, and Skyshine's Bedlam from Skyshine Games will all have a presence at Versus Evil's booth at the expo.
The Banner Saga 2 is the first sequel to Stoic's tactical RPG, which was released in 2014. It is the second part of a planned trilogy inspired by Viking legends. The Banner Saga 2 is set to be released for PC and Mac in 2016, with its predecessor set to receive releases on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and Xbox One this year.
Guild of Dungeoneering is the creation of Irish developer Gambrinous. The game is a turn-based dungeon crawler, however, instead of controlling the hero, players are in charge of creating the actual dungeon. Using cards drawn from various decks, players will build the dungeon as the hero ventures through it, acting of his own accord. Guild of Dungeoneering is due out for PC and Mac in summer 2015.

Players take on the role of the Mechanic, who is in charge of overseeing the safety of their Dozer and its people. Skyshine's Beldam utilises the same engine as The Banner Saga and is set to be released some time in 2015 for PC and Mac.
