    I wouldn't like such a relatively big decision (yes, even for a Torment game) put to a popularity contest.

    DAMN !

    We already knew a lot of what's been told in the document, but reading it all at once just gave me a RAGING BONER --and-- made me shed a manly tear.

    How can this be ? - It's Numenera, everything's possible !

    :brodex:

    More ineptitude from inEPTile's artists. "You can't judge it cause it's too weird" was just hogwash.

    I can't think of anything SoZ did right aside from the party conversation system.

    Damnit, fuckers made me update my pledge for the comics. I didn't want to contribute to the surge.

  9. Eh?

    This game was the closest thing to Darklands Skill system with overlands map usage.

    The overland map was AWESOME and something the community really wanted.

    When the core is about running around talking to people, extended sections where you just kill things are an inappropriate and unwanted speed bump.

    Didn't make for an interesting game.

    If SoZ had a better engine and Torment's stable of writers it would have been one of the best ever.

    Darklands is a boring grind, yes. It does have a lot of interesting ideas. Unlike SoZ.

  15. Hmm.

    Tell me what those ideas are OTHER than the skill usage ( and probably open world, although it was hardly WELL DONE).

    That screenshot makes me REALLY want to look in all those barrels and crates. There could be a minor healing potion, some copper, who knows???!!

    My comedy stylings fall well short of CMcC I freely admit.

    Hate to nitpick ANOTHER screenshot especially since this one looks much better and more interesting. What is up with the perspective though? It's messing with my brain or I'm just looking at it wrong.

    Too bad the combat system will be shit anyway.

    Shit combat system, shit mechanics in general, shit dungeon design.

    I can't wait for all the backers to vote for a RTwP system. It'll be like this, but vidya games:
