    Bard's Tale 4 did this? Well it looks more traditional dungeon crawler than BT4 at least!

    Watching the first gif (inside the quote) you poosted, i wish the whole game was designed like that in 2D.

    Well, if they keep their promises, they will be remembered and we'll sing songs about their game development skills for decades.

    Apparently, no party creation. They can keep their modern sensibilities.

    I don't mind premade party as long is level design is any good. Besides, it's char development that matters.

    First:

    "I want to do a modern dungeon crawler!"

    "...oh shit, I also want it to sell. Quick, eliminate all of the features that require thought and planning from the player! That's the ticket! I need this thing to appeal to as many as possible..."

    then:

    "WHY DIDN'T ANYONE BUY MY MODERN CRAWLER!!!!1"

    pre-generated chars with dumb skill trees running around 15 levels moving block puzzles or whatever? no thanks.

    i'll be happy to change my opinion once actual info trickles out but so far it's just pretty graphics.

    Good luck getting your "Witcher moment" with the most niche of all RPG subgenres. But the neat visuals, cool world, pregen characters and seemingly streamlined gameplay have me intrigued - a modern Lands of Lore?

    I mean, to be fair... "simple" does NOT necessarily = BAD. Far from it. My comments and those of others stem from wanting a REAL "AAA indie graphics blobber!!", not something streamlined for eventual release on iPhone or whatever, which is almost always the real end-goal of these indies devs.

    This thing very well could turn out to be enjoyable, but from the little information here it seems like it will be a quickly forgotten thing of little lasting impression.

    Thats the most deluded stuff I've read in months, it'd take some otherwordly amount of whimsicality to take on witcher, not a try hard attempt of a "folk inspired game".

    It looks like a polished version of BT4, char development seems to be related to combat only, probably as popamole as BT4, too

    Where do you get that from? None of the screenshots shows any char development.

    There are stats for attack, defense and the third is magic I guess. Skilltree looks really simple and is the meat of the combat I guess. Can't see any stats like charisma, trade, persuasion, stealth etc.

    This.

    Frayed Knights was pretty good despite no party creation, and if the pre-made dudes can be developed in different ways, that's good enough for me.

    Good.

    If you're referring to this screenshot, it's from inventory screen. Naturally, the inventory screen wouldn't show all the stats.


    If you're referring to this screenshot, then look again and notice that it's not a skill tree but crafting interface (which actually looks interesting for a change).
    Otherwise I'm really curious as to your source of information.

    My "source of information" are these screenshots. With the one screenshot you seem to be right, looks indeed more like crafting. Combat screenshots remind me a lot of BT4 with the skillbar. Otherwise there are no skills shown in the trailer which is telling enough for me atm.

    It's just the impression I've got from the screenshots. Don't try to lock me into a statement I haven't made. If my impressions are proven wrong then that's nice and there might be a good rpg ahead. But somehow I don't get this vibe from the screenshots. Sorry to disappoint you in that matter.

    It also has a Xulima-like initiative queue on the left, so at the very least there should be some stats governing that.

    Did Brian sell unused assets and levels from BT4 to these people? Looks a lot like an alternate build of BT4.

    I mean it does look cool though. I'd give it a spin probably.
