    That was a joke about how a long time resident poster has been talking to himself down in Prosperium for the past couple days about how much we all suck and are cRPG fan posers because we didn't know about this game.

    Beyond that, you should always KickStart, but probably with indie expectations.

    No, just get this game into good working order and have someone trustworthy on the 'dex vouch for it and I'll buy it for whatever and mail you the rest if it's good.

    Make a good game and you'll have no problems funding the next one.

    There is no next one until you clear your name. Only way to do that is to get a trusted source here to vouch for you. Do what it takes to get that done and you're good.

    Until then you're blowing smoke.

    The guy seems to be really trying, give him a break. A few people here already bought it, I'm sure they'll give their opinions in a few days.

    Shouldn't you be sucking Owlcat dicks with Pink Eye this late at night instead of ranting ?
    He explained himself twice in this thread already, "remember" what happened to some other codexers working on their own games or not when the "shining kinights" squads got them kicked out of their jobs or attacked their morale daily ...

    Ranting? I'm offering to pay the dude five times what he's asking if he's legit. I'm hoping he is so I can play his game. Looks like a good one.

    Nice scare quotes on shit about which I have no idea what you're talking. It is remarkable how determined you are to continue tilting at this particular windmill. I'll go ahead and put you on ignore to prevent any further self harm.

    Were you one of the developers of Red Hand of Doom? This can serve as a demo for prospective buyers.

    Edit: Fuck, are you paying them money for real?

    This situation is in no way similar to what happened with Realms Beyond.

    No one is being melodramatic. People were talking about price being the issue. Price isn't the issue, credibility is. People don't want to be conned. I held off on P:K for six months for the same reason. Show me something solid and I'll back you, then all the 'dex ankle-biters will call me a shill. That's your melodrama.

    Uh, dude, if I was on a tirade, you'd know it. Ask Delterius. You're missing tone cues.

    "I would have bought it but I missed the ($9.99 vs $12.99) sale" = "It's not you it's me."

    Price isn't the issue.

    Good devs learning how to monetize their work more effectively = more, better games.

    I'm purchasing it tomorrow to hopefully hold me over for a time until a certain neurotic Frenchman releases his highly anticipated game.

    It reminds me so far on ToEE but made on a budget by a single guy in his spare time. If Brigand: Oaxaca / Panama is anything to go off of, I'm sure it will be good.

    So far the author in question has demonstrated that he cares about his own product and is actively updating it. It may end up being a really polished game in the future so I'm interested.

    Really find your game promising, you seem to be meeting the right points, liked the art style and that it is party based TB.

    There will be a GoG or Steam release? Dude, when I see USD, I have a PTSD reaction and feel a deep anxiety, I still dont know the reason of this psychological issue but I think it all started when I saw my currency conversion rate to dollars last time.

    In terms of content, what game inspired you? ToEE, Baldurs Gate? What sort of content I can expect? Combat focused? C&C focused?

    What is the size of the world? The number of side quests? The size of the dungeons?

    What are the details about the world building? How many serious quest hubs are in it? How about some backstory on your world and locations in it?What is your opinion on RPGs? What you like/hate about them? What you think you can offer?

    You seem to like what you do, reading that excitement on your own words would make me more interested as well.

    Man, be free and sell your fish, dont wait for us lazy internet bums to stop being lazy. Talk about your world and how would be interesting for us to explore? Right now I see your game as promising but you need to convince me why trying out you game is a good idea, a cRPG is huge and can take hours to make a decent impression on a game, that can easily amount to an entire week of free time.

    Thanks.. I was inspired by ToEE I loved that game, (also KOTC inspired me as well that game is a true master piece as far as the battle system goes.) Soul of War is heavy into combat but very rewarding, there are stories and quests and lots of npc's to talk to. i have finished the update for today its uploading now. this is what it adds:
    Added raise dead potions
    12 more additional monster types
    2 more dungeons
    made town npc's animations smoother
    made a script for more random loot
    added 22 new npc's
    also moved some battles because the black info box was getting in the way
    revamped the story (Thanks to Falksi)

    Lots of things I add or change because I listen to all the requests people put in and things they would like to see.
    The Npc's animations run a lot smoother I hired someone to help me with them.

    The main story is pretty long it starts out slow but progresses pretty fast when you get to a certain point, Don't want to say to much about the main story because of spoilers. It is about 3 brothers go on a quest to hunt down the legendary Medusa the younger brother was the only one who escaped, 5 years later things start to happen and he gets dragged into it.

    I love turn based rpgs, I dont like mashing the button 1k times, I loved the story of BG and the characters but I hated the battle system spells were useless unless you rooted enemies first.
    I love old school rpgs gold box games, wizardry, might and magic, bards tale....many many more.

    All I can say is if your like me and love true rpgs you need to give this game a try it is really fun and lots of surprises. I myself always get the urge to want to play my own game but then i get disappointed because I know everything, but I do fart around with the battles lol.

    Also everyone that has played it loves it so far, I have a few people say they cant stop playing it. I wish I could find a rpg I feel that way about, but I've played them all lol

    Thanks for posting about it, it means a lot to me. There is a french news rpg website and one of the editors played it and loves it, he put it up on his site. now hes looking for a french translator to translate the game.
