Following an unexpected assassination plot, you find yourself wounded, alone, and on the run across a treacherous. Survival in this harsh world is not guaranteed; it requires strategic recruitment, desperate battle, and a journey of sincere repentance.

Huge thank you to the #TBTF team for featuring us, we are super grateful about the opportunity.” said Rafael Dolfe, CEO & Lead Developer.“I love me a Turn-Based Tactical RPG where the AI outsmarts me! Lost In The Open is a marathon, not a sprint. You can’t expect to destroy every encounter, you will need time to recover and recuperate!” states Black Voyage Games.

      – Complex and mature narrative tightly integrated with gameplay.

About Black Voyage Games
Embark on a voyage through pitch black darkness with Black Voyage Games: Where atmosphere meets honest, gritty play.

Started in 2021, Black Voyage Games is an international indie game studio. The goal of the studio is to take players on a voyage through the pitch-black night. As a result, our games are immersed in a dark, gritty, and ambivalent atmosphere. Our mission is to evoke thought and emotion by exposing players to tough decisions and overwhelming odds. We want players to immerse themselves deeply and attempt to sail on, despite the circumstances. Our studio is completely against predatory monetization strategies, as seen in big studios and countless mobile games. Part of our goal is to develop games with depth and story to make a positive impact on people, rather than fueling issues like addiction and gambling. Releasing Premium games only (not F2P or P2W) is a must for all BVG games.

“Lost in the Open” is our first title and an upcoming game scheduled to launch on Steam in 2024. It is a turn-based tactical RPG where you scramble to escape from an assassination attempt in an atmospheric, low-fantasy, procedurally generated medieval world. “Lost In The Open” can be described as Battle Brothers meets FTL: Faster Than Light, with art style inspiration from real medieval art. A playable demo is available on Steam today.
