This summer indie publisher Versus Evil will be bringing the post-apocalyptic roguelike RPG Bedlam to PC, from developer Skyshine Games, who has been working with Stoic's Banner Saga engine.

Things are heating up with King.com, who recently filed a trademark 'Notice of Opposition' against Stoic's The Banner Saga for use of a single word. Matt Cox, creator of ScamperGhost, says King.com 'stole his game'.
