Lost Dimension seeks to add a few twists into the strategy RPG genre - defer attacks to team mates, balance powerful abilities with costs to sanity, and ferret out traitors amongst your ranks. Though this preview can't go into what goes on beyond the second floor, what I did experience showed some promise, though time will tell if it can come through in the full product. Read More.

Various attempts have been made, some decent, some poor, but as far as I know, none have reached the level of popularity that the original had.
