    Show Spoiler
    Kenshi, an ambitious indie game, trying to be M&B except better in every way, has reached the glorious alpha-status of version 0.1 and Chris, the dev, has made it public for bugcrunching and stuff.

    Needless to say but I'll warn folks anyway, the "game" is in very, very raw state. Don't expect anything else except a little sandbox to play with.

    Sounds awesome, and kind of like a single-player version of what Darkfall was supposed to be.



    I'll give it a try. But I'll echo the skepticism.

    In development game read about onRPS.

    Exciting:
    Less exciting:

    Still pretty excited about the potential. Hope I'm not adding to the vapourware list.

    It is thanks to idiots like this we cannot have nice things no more.
    Hell, why am I bothering with this....

    This is kinda ironic, cause we actually see idiots taking their sweet time, waiting to be smaked, in the video.

    Combination of X-COM and Oblivion pretty much covers the entire spectrum. Not to mention that the whole "strategic combat that plays like an action game" sounds a lot like DA2.

    :roll:

    :(

    I'd still put up with outright shitty combat if it delivered on the variety of role-playing options and the dynamic world it promises. Besides, I eventually learned to love Gothic II after bitching for days about it.

    He may be making an ARPG, but he pays more heed to my rules for a good RPG than most modern RPGs I encounter.

    I also figure it's not too late to threaten his children to get him to change to TBC à la JA2 or, you know, real X-COM.

    Why call it "kenshi"? It just makes it sound like some standard jap/weeaboo crap.
    It is more practical to add it right now because chances for you having to remove it from that list are ~ 1:1000000

    Not that anyone would miss yet another A"RPG". Fuck indies like that.

    Here is the obvious DC version:

    This ^
    At the very least make it real time with pause.

    The worse part is that he says its squad based, but wants it real time. All the possible strategy that the game could have basically dies.
    He also mentions beat-em-up! I find it funny he goes with all that talk one normal guy with no super powers, but them aims for a beat-em-up action game. wtf!

    I'll keep my hopes really low so that it doesn't make me cry latter.

    If you had read the message and look at the screens you would have realized that the setting is not AMARICANE!!! :patriot:
    It's common knowledge that China and Japan have a long history of martial arts.

    Contradictions fucking everywhere. It's like looking at a bunch of cavemen trying to build a spacecraft.

    Give him a copy of ToEE and see if he'll succeed by having his characters stand there like idiots.

    Could be good. Just hope the early game grinding isn't as boring as in Gothic 2.

    And yeah wtf is that sword, the concept is crap and it's even worse implementation, why would you show off a glitchy piece of shit like that in a promo video?

    Looks interesting. Setting is some sort of Western-Japanese-Wasteland... ?
    An Alpha Version will be released Today.

    This shows a lot of potential. A bit weird to play since there's no sound at all but it's rather fun to explore and loot corpses. Also the idea of opening your own shops and building your own cities is awesome.

    Looks cool. But it's still alpha and I doubt how well it'll run on my machine so I'll pass for now.
