    I'm happy to announce that Knights of the Chalice will be released on Steam soon. It is finally happening after all these years. The Steam store page is already up, see here. That also means the Kickstarter campaign for KotC 2 will be coming, uhh, eventually.

    Knights of the Chalice is a party-based RPG with turn-based combat for Windows. KotC 1 uses the OGL 3.5, the ruleset at the root of Dungeons and Dragons 3.5. In KotC 1, create four Adventurers and embark on a bold journey to save the Land from Slavers, Demons, Dragons and other Evil Forces, as your Heroic Party progresses all the way from level 1 to level 20.

    A Kickstarter campaign is still planned for the future adventure modules of KotC 2. The first KotC 2 adventure module, Augury of Chaos, and the KotC 2 module and campaign editor will be released to backers as soon as the campaign ends. In KotC 2: Augury of Chaos, your Heroic Party confronts a group of Evil Fanatics allied with various Demons and Fiendish Dragons. Thank you for reading!

    Best regards, Pierre Begue

    This Ultima VII perspecitve makes me sick. It's the worst perspective in any videogames ever.

    I'm dead serious. It doesn't make the games bad mind you, but for me it is just inconvenient to the level that I feel that something is not OK whenever I see a game like this.

    This is already one of the top results when searching for Knights of the Chalice, will make it tons more likely new people try it.

    DivDiv is worse.

    If you've kept up looking at the kickstarter page for KotC2 that he's been going to launch any day now for 4 months you would have learned that its because he was busy making the trailer.

    I dunno, Divine Divintiy almost has a classic isometric view, but the camera is lowered, so it is closer to the ground. Not the best, but I liked it much more than the one in Ultima 7.

    He had to learn how to stop hating money by having very little of it for a long time and a steady diet of roots before he realized the value of getting games on steam/gog.

    Right, so soon you'll be able to buy both Grimoire and Knights of the Chalice from Steam. What a time to be alive.

    In fact, I think our job is now officially done. Time to close down the Codex folks!

    Top-down used in the sequel is much worse. He should have just reused the original assets and added new monsters (same sprites, just rearranged colors and added details).

    Ultima VIII had classic isometric view, I don't see that as a bad thing.

    It looks even better in the current year than it used to look on release.
