    It's the tiles. I think they should be either way more transparent or completely filled out with a single color.

    No, the other screenshots have the exact same problem. The game seems blurry for some reason? Is that just the art?

    :d1p:, whenever that may be. Expecting a shit ton of content now that they've revealed the map and part of its numerous locations.

    I dunno. Doesn't look blurry to me. Maybe whoever took the shots had weird graphics settings?

    Perhaps more contrast and/or sharpness. We could ask the dev, there should be someone here.

    Something weird with shadows/lighting. Shadows aren’t there at all.

    Fuck shadows. For the amount or resources they eat up, a fairly useless effect.

    I like some kind of shadow to keep the characters from floating. Depending on the implementation, shadows don't have to be expensive and you can even provide a toggle to turn them off.

    In my timeline there are whole 10 days until the end of February. Stop hurrying up time, it passes already at ×2 speed compared to only 5-10 years ago. I'm time broke FFS!

    How would Realms Beyond look like if Ceres Games had current Owlact's budget or previous Obsidian's, I can't even begin to imagine. . ! What would we even get then, D&D: Matrix, Daggerfall II: Isometric?!

    Maybe it's best to have just barely enough, all best art wasn born out of struggle after all

    Drop shadows, pre-baked and directional shadows are essentially free, and they are important in showing height for flight or levitation. Especially if the game is to have any verticality at all.

    Apparently end of Feb 2020 is when the Combat Demo only will be delivered to backers, according to some boyo from Ceres on the Steam forum. Who the fuck knows when the rest of the game will be finished.

    All backers or just some very high value categories? I haven't received an email with respect to this...

    I think you get the Combat BETA starting from the 55 euro tier.

    These Ceres guys are really not into this 'regular updates thing' now, are they?

    Blitzkrieg media campaigns a few months before release are better than years of small updates, hype withers on the vine when you start building it too early in my opinion.

    KS work differently, backers made an investment and are curious about how the the thing that gave their money for in advance is coming along. Regular updates should be a matter of course. If you just stop informing people after you asked them for their dough it feels like you don't give a fuck after you got what you wanted.

    If they work hard to deliver a great game, it means they give a fuck.

    Way more than the morons updating their twitter account every other day while doing nothing or turning the game into something else the backers didn't vouch for.

    We'll judge on delivery day but i prefer this method.
