We return with the tenth edition of our series designed to help RPGamer cater to the ever-increasing number of indie titles that our staff regrettably does not have the resources to provide full coverage to. The idea of this column is to quickly pass on the word about certain games to our readers that they might otherwise not be made aware of, and we hope both readers and developers find this useful.
This edition of our indie update column features the following titles: The Tenth Line, The Vagrant, LUCAH, Fell Seal: Arbiter's Mark, and Exzore: The Rising.
