    I've also been watching the Dark Crystal show on Netflix and it has me even more excited for Teer Fradee because the creatures are so like they could have come from Thra and the exploitation of the island and the plague is like the Skesis and The Darkening!

    Combat looks surprisingly fluid for a eurojank, not tactical or strategic or anything, but looks like a fun romp.

    Why would the science faction be opposed to Native? Should they be more neutral rather than taking a side? Or is it the good old "mad scientists destroying things to understand it" time again.

    1. The Scientist see Natives are savages in needs of enlightenment. The Scientist see the Natives as brutes in way of science. They could see them only as slaves to be used etc.
    2. The Natives see any outsider as invader to their way of life regardless of factions and attack without regards.

    Really, these kind of interaction are common in history and historical fictions.

    From the streams I've seen it looks like the dialogue system is extremely simple. One or two word selections like 'Insist', 'Kill him', and so on, rather than detailed dialogues to choose from. It looks like your character mostly speaks by themself with little input from the player, though it's unclear how much of your character's personality is set in stone and how much changes based on variables or what have you.

    This game loosk pretty good, combat smooth , games looks good and the cutscenes are really well done , minus the dialogue, looks really poor. Especialy Speech checks being chance based. I hate Chance based speech..

    I hate the look of the combat in this game. Turned me off completely

    It's the over the top rolling around superhero power-throwing action fest, like you're not fully in control of your character and like the encounters are cinematically staged so that you can swoop in and save the day

    Same here. Don't know who I am going to side with. I am yet to decide if I'm going to play good or bad on my 1st play through. Though enslaving the natives does sound very appealing

    Wait. so i can't have both negro scientist and FIERCE native princess in my party at the same time for maximum wokeness? They are from opposing factions.

    I am definitely playing the subjugate route. I'll either side with the religious extremists or the mercs.

    Not sure how strict those faction memberships are, maybe you can get them to play nice

    It's not fake news, Rusty. Check the streams for yourself if you don't believe me

    so what has been the ideal control scheme for Spider games in the past, keyboard+mouse or gamepad?

    Gamepad, probably. The shortcuts (1-9) on the keyboard can not be rebinded, and the movements of the character could not be less accurate, it was abominable.
