Our dear Cabal has been interviewed by Adrenaline Vault about Lionheart.
Sneaking Experience: Another unique factor is how we made Sneak a viable path in Lionheart. I know sneaking around a gaming environment has been done before, but we have things in place that make it a definite option. For example, a player can obtain up to 75 percent of an enemyâ€™s experience by sneaking past him successfully. This experience is earned every few seconds while the player is successful in their attempt, with the maximum experience being earned in about 20-30 seconds. A small portion of that enemyâ€™s experience is given to the player as a reward, and is subtracted in real-time from the potential experience the enemy could give you if you killed them. If you want the other 25 percent, the enemy has to be killed, but thatâ€™s the breaks. I find Sneak to be very viable, especially when combined with Speech and a few non-offensive tribal spells. I heard that someone at Black Isle made it through the entire game without attacking a single enemy by using a combination of non-combat skills.
Well, at least the game is true to its Fallouteian roots.
