    That means no sequel to Memoria, I guess. Darth Roxor is disappoint.

    This sounds pretty cool, though.

    Steampunk could be cool. Will cautiously fap.

    And no sequel to Memoria MAKES TEH BABY JEBUS CRY!

    This looks very promising, but even better would've been a RPG in a Victorian setting.

    Well considering how they jumped to RPG after Darkeye adventure games, one can hope.

    When will they finally do something QfG-like, for fuck's sake?!
    I mean - they're an adventure developer that has a TDE license, and what do the do with it? First - adventure games (no RPG whatsoever). Then - a combat-focused RPG (TDE being probably the least combat-focused major ruleset). It's not that those aren't great, but seriously - how long should we wait till they put 2 and 2 together?

    Absolutely love the art style. Those two screens already sold the game to me.

    It looks beautiful. Let's hope it doesn't suck.

    Odds are it won't.

    You could perhaps read about it in detail if some faggots on the staff finally posted the first part of my Gamescom report

    I'm not a fan of Daedalic's adventure games but I think this one might be a pleasant surprise [link]:

    I think it looks delicious. But there is more according to The Escapist [link]:

    Well, fake C&C is better than nothing.

    Edit: The writer is Kevon Mentz which is also the writer of Memoria.

    Daedalic + Steampunk. This game will be fine, I guess. Looks promising at least.

    Looking forward to it. But man I always get a slightly sinking feeling when I hear developers say "Every decision will matter." I'll play it for the art and 'steampunkness' alone but it would be nice if they didn't try to do some lazy fake c&c dialog puzzles.

    The game's release date is still "TBA" on Daedalic's website, btw. Sad times.
