Dear Esther!

mondo84: Dear Esther!
Is it as good as I've heard?

I think that'd end up in a humble bundle before anything else.

Is it on Mac and Linux? I know HIB requires games to be cross-platform compatible.

I'm not sure, but they could always develop Mac/Linux versions in the future, like past games have done that were included in Humble Bundles. I think a couple of the games in Humble Bundle 6 didn't even have finished versions for their Mac or Linux builds (can't remember which) when the bundle was first released.

The reason I think Dear Esther is more likely to be in a Humble Bundle before any other bundles is because it's been in the Humble Store for a while. Same reason I think Legend of Grimrock will be in a Humble Bundle first before any other bundles.

In either case, I highly doubt it'll appear on IGS first, seems too high profile for a IGS deal.

Yeah, that's what I reckon too.

Foxhack: I really doubt it'll be Grotesque Tactics 2, since it doesn't seem to fit their definition of an indie game. It's published by a relatively big company (Meridian4). Yes, their games have been in other bundles but IndieGameStand hasn't sold anything from a big publisher.

I would -like- to be wrong about this, but I doubt that game will be here.

spoderman: Grotesque Tactics 2 was in their image assets (before they got locked). That's why I made the suggestion that it could be a possibility.
Fair enough. :) Let's hope you're right, and I'm wrong then! :D
Besides that, Dear Esther is an a RPG?

... I'm not sure what it is but it isn't an RPG.
Hint 3: Control Multiple Characters

It is on Mac and Linux. And it's available DRM-free.

Yeah, that game smacks of Humble Bundle.
Dear Esther is like this Half Life Lost Coast Source Engine tech demo somehow, you just follow the path and there is very little to explore beside the linear path, its World is not very huge, no interaction beside moving around and you just read the narrator's story unfold as you progress in the straightforward landscape.

Quite an experience for an average of 2 to 3 hours long in the audiovisual department (the underground caverns are really beautiful) , emotionally so so (in my case) as i am no english native speaker and that game uses quite the vocabulary.. Scratching my head to understand what is said don't help for spontaneous feelings, kind of like if you have a foreign girlfriend.. ^^

I know what it's about. I already own it. I ... don't consider it a game, it's more of a story playing out on the Source Engine.
Another hint: This RPG is not in a fantasy/magic world

I'm thinking it could be Serious Sam: The Random Encounter....

Er, Krater? Probably not, but that's the only one I can think of.
