    I caved, obv. Anyone else wants to game, add me - RedSparrows.

    It's certainly an alpha, but it's still good fun. Enjoying the combat a lot, and yet to explore the detailed combinations, crafting et al.

    I played it for half an hour or so a few weeks back and decided to wait, I'd rather not spoil it for myself.

    I liked what I saw, but the music is dreadful. I hardly ever turn off a game's soundtrack and put my own music on, but I think I'll be forced to in this case, it's a complete atmosphere killer. I have a sneaking suspicion Stefansen might work for Larian.

    This is my type of game all over but it they think I'm paying 29.99 for an alpha build they must be off their tits. I'll buy it when it's finished, however.
  • Deleted user 19 January 2014 10:21:33
    Meh, I see it as paying 30 for a preorder, with alpha access the sweetener for impatient sods like me,

    It's not yet the final music at least that's from the December update on kickstarter. One of the stretch goals was that the music would be composed with an orchestra which is why it takes a bit longer.

    It's getting harder and harder not diving in but I'm still trying to wait for the final game.
  • Deleted user 19 January 2014 14:24:26
    Yeah, the game really does leave the questing up to you. Very few signposts. Is taking some time getting used to it.

    Was a Kickstarter backer but holding back until full release, potentially too special to spoil. Glad it sounds ok so far.

    Really tempted by this but think I'll hang on until the full release. Might & Magic X is due out next week and that'll hopefully keep me occupied until March (if its any good...)

    Every 2H sword I equip disappears next load :(

    This is a real alpha, lots of bugs and unfinished stuff, but the few hours I played were amazing. I love the freedom and the tactical (though imbalanced) combat. Probably not for everyone though, don't expect an action game.
  • Deleted user 6 April 2014 23:43:17
    It's in Beta now. Looks, sounds, runs better, more content, etc etc. Is shaping up to be a seriously impressive game, I think.

    And best of all, the inanely long loading times are gone!
    An optional dungeon-tutorial, Elder Scrolls style, has been added as well.
    Lot of sound issues on my end though.

    Out in a fortnight, I believe.

    Gonna be great.

    Out on Monday.

    This is going to be absolutely fantastic, judging by my (admittedly short)experiences with the various alpha/beta stages.

    People wait for The Witcher 3, and Dragon Age, and whatnot, but the next big RPG is right on our doorstep.
  • Deleted user 27 June 2014 13:30:11
    Yup, very excited for it.

    *sigh* I really need to upgrade my pc a bit. I backed this on kickstarter and I also want to play the new wolfenstein & get back to a bunch of games I had to abandon because the PC tends to crash to desktop.

    Yep, dipped into the early access, but didn't want to spoil too much. Seems rather excellent indeed.

    Was really hoping to pick this up from Steam in the Summer Sales, but the price didn't dip low enough for my skinflint tastes.

    That said, 3 days left.

    @rivuzu Hm, wasn't it something like 30 EUR or so? For a brand new, by all accounts huge RPG?

    I'd be extremely suprised if it got any cheaper.

    @UncleLou Not sure about the EUR equiv, but it went down to 23. Of course, I was ignorant to it's release date so as far as I was concerned, it was just an early access game asking for full release price (or close enough to) for something that was unfinished.

    Now I know otherwise, it's different!

    Can't wait. Got the early access version but haven't touched it as I don't want to spoil anything.

    First ever Kickstarter comes to fruition with this. Mega excited.
  • Deleted user 27 June 2014 16:25:33
    Damn...this sounds like just the sort of game I love... I cant buy another game... I'll never have the time to play it... must resist...

    yeah I've not touched the early access either, only seen a few preview vids from RPS. Looking forward to getting stuck into it on Monday. Full mod support as well, so should be a lot of fun stuff down the line as well just from that.
