    Tags: Heroic Fantasy Games; Knights of the Chalice 2

    The development of Knights of the Chalice 2: Augury of Chaos has come far enough for a Kickstarter campaign to happen soon.
    Blast your enemies with more than 700 spells, bull rush them into spike pits, trick them with your superior guile, or crush them with your enchanted greatsword! See them driven before you and hear the lamentations of their women, as your valiant party progresses all the way from level 1 to level 21!

    There's also a new update on the Heroicfantasy forums available, detailing the current state of affairs.

    Here are the latest news about Knights of the Chalice 2. This should be the last update before Kickstarter! Post-KS, I will probably create two new forum sections, one dedicated to KotC 2: Augury of Chaos (bug reports, suggestions and tips) and one for KotC 2 Module Creators (help and ideas).

    In the last few days, I created new web pages for the game. The new pages include the following: KotC 2 Screenshots, KotC 2 Features, KotC 2 F.A.Q., and KotC 2 About Us. Be sure to check them out!

    I also created a Twitter profile and Facebook page and I updated my Youtube channel. Would be very cool to have more 'Likes' and 'Follows'!

    In addition, I completed the Kickstarter new-project registration procedure. But I still need to create the KS video and fill up the KS page with information, graphics, reward slots and stretch goals.

    I've added links to the Kickstarter page, Youtube channel, Twitter profile and Facebook page in the website's menus, as well as 'Recommend' and 'Share' buttons on the web pages for KotC 2 Features, KotC 2 Screenshots, KotC 1 Features and KotC 1 Screenshots.
    Fasten your seatbelts boys, turn-based DnD is about to make a triumphant return.

    That's what he said. Apart of testing/bugfixing/polishing etc, since he didn't do a beta test yet, but the bulk of development seems to be done.

    The fisrt game had two beta testers (I was one of them), it was a llong and hard work, but highly enjoyable. Of course, two people were't enough, the game kept being optimized after the initial release.
    I'm looking forward for this game, although I confess I prefered the look of the first one. But gameplay is the most important thing in these kind of games, and of that, the creator has already shown that he's up to the task.

    Is this the thread where we joke about the developer subsisting on roots?

    He should have stuck with the old sprites.

    Also will this be available on GOG or do you still have to buy it through his website?

    This limp dragon feels like some kind of old man I want to punch because he's too clumsy to stand straight

    I don't understand, though, like, if he's finished the game why does he want a kickstarter? Just sell the game to people

    awesome, will be buying a fairly high tier in this, the maker of the game is a bro.

    I am sure the art work is modable right? someone will make some really nice looking tiles for the game I assume. The ones that come with it are fine I guess, I can just imagine much better ones, i suspect it will happen..

    He should buy some PIXELS with kickstarter money. I cannot stand this "art" direction. And it's kinda sad. Would've better if he used I don't know even ASCII. UGH

    No, if he sells it on his own site no one will even bother.kickstarter at least offer aminimum of visibility. Kotc was published like 10 years ago ,most of us forgot about it.The customers are here and the watch, half people here dont like the presentation and its not likely we buy it, then amongst people who can stomach that garbage , half will torrent and the polish dudes cant afford anything anyway.
