    It's like they are trying to gather to edgy teens, old grandpas living off their pensions, and NEET furries and their disability buxx.

    I expect a general difficulty nerf too. Hard will be story mode and Unfair, normal.

    What are you guys expecting? Owlcat Games collected 1.2Mio in 2 weeks that is an insane sum for a studio that didn't even exist 4 years ago.

    This would have easily went to 2 milions by the end of the KS.

    Now? Doubt it.

    In my searches for various bits of information I've already seen people bitch about alignment in probably a dozen threads between reddit posts and the steam forums. Nobody knows what the fuck they're talking about. "WHY ARE THE HELLKNIGHTS BREAKING THE LAW IN MY KINGDOM IF THEY'RE LAWFUL? BAD GAME OWLCAT!"

    I could go on a lengthy rant about D&D alignments and how most people don't understand them, and that's especially true in today's PC culture, but my biggest complaint with alignment in Kingmaker was mostly the lack of enough options in many quests. Their grasp on D&D alignments is fine, and even though I didn't like Octavia I still thought the companions were all well written.

    What I'm hoping for are some evil options for quests that aren't stupidly punishing, because I'm in chapter 5 of Kingmaker on my second playthrough now and while playing an evil character has been fun, at times I've had to pass picking evil dialog to skip making an obviously stupid decision, or take flat out good actions to avoid failing a quest when I can think of obvious alternatives. Don't punish people for being evil!

    The lawful evil city look is great, though.

    Lots of idiots like you guys are giving money to shitty studios, and those are hardly remarkable numbers:

    I suppose when 90% of your market consists of russians and newfags, then 1.2Million is a lot.

    It makes more sense when you realize Gregz 's name is an acronym for "Gay retarded extremely gay zilch" and read his retarded and butthurt posts accordingly

    Once, there are simply too many games that I don't need to replay the same ones multiple times.
    Anyway, this is the most successful CRPG crowdfunding since Deadfire in 2017 which collected 2.2Mio+ 2 Mio investment. Not a single one of the recent crowdfunding CRPGs even reached a million(aside from Subverse:lol:)

    At least he's more creative than, say... name and then putting a "z" at the end of it...

    It's true that there are many games, but very few of them are any good.

    The ones worth playing were made by professionals, employed inside actual studios, back when the market was competitive for talent. Kingfaker obviously doesn't qualify on any of those fronts. Wrath of the retards won't either.

    You're seriously slipping into dementia. Most good games were made by people that loved the PnP experience and wanted to translate it to PC, retelling good stories and reliving moments they experienced in their sessions.

    You must have missed Ziets', and not just his, comments where he said that back in the day most RPGs were written by whomever was there, and available.

    Like... I understand that you're an old man, and that you hate that this game is not what you grew up with, but there is a serious line between that, and being completely fucking stupid about it.

    Hey look everybody. Gregz showing off how long he's been on the forum again. He really likes to wave his old dick around. Between that and making fun of games by replacing words in the title with random swears, I can't tell if he's old as fuck or a child that somehow got his hands on an account when he was really young.

    My guess it's "why pay $28 now when you can pay half that price on release, due to regional pricing", rather.

    I mean what else would he expect? He came in to a Pathfinder crpg thread to talk shit about Pathfinder crpg. Probably wanted it. He's probably a masochist or some other degenerate shit.
