The games of Klei Entertainment, creators of the games Don't Starve and Oxygen Not Included, always have stunning 2D art. Their new game, revealed at today's PC Gaming Show, is no exception.

Griftlands is an upcoming sci-fi RPG, the trailer showing off the player waltzing over world maps, dialogue, aliens, and more. On Steam, the primary character is shown as a guy, where the trailer shows a girl in the hero role, this initially made me wonder if players choose their character, and the description on the Steam page confirms that.

"Griftlands is an RPG where everything is negotiable: money, loyalty—even morality," reads the description. "Choose your character and make your fortune." Griftlands will be available in late 2017 or early 2018.
