    This pitch really needs subtitles. At 2:08 he says what sounds like, "Many personalization (sp) options are available, such as weapon customization and cuisine.."

    :retarded:


    Looks like a nice action RPG though. The main thing I'm missing is why do they need Kickstarter? The thing seems pretty complete already. The possible changes/upgrades from funding seem a bit lacking here.

    YouTube subs say "such as weapon customization and housing". They seem accurate on the words you can understand, so subtitles are already there.

    This. It looks good. Who knows, maybe it will be a good ARPG.

    Ahh, excellent point good sir. And the kickstarter video also has subtitles you can enable.


    However, it still sounds like "cuisine" to me :P

    Any interest in reading a Codex interview with these guys?
    I personally think the game sounds pretty interesting, even tho it's an ARPG.

    I'm down.

    Also, someone should rename this thread: " Umbra devs are kickstarting game for some reason"

    Hopefully an interview with them would address what the Kickstarter would do for the development.

    Regardless, visuals look great. Would like to hear more.

    The game looks very nice. Too bad all of this talent is being wasted to make another fucking Diablo clone. As if we don't have enough of those already.

    Looks like a westernized copy of Lineage Eternal or Lost Ark.

    I backed it. It does look a lot like Lost Ark but without the silly anime characters/weapons/etc which is more my style.

    If you've got questions for the Q&A/interview, feel free to post them here. I plan to send them the questions later tonight.

    Find out if they plan to have character system and itemization like crappy Diablo 3 or more like godlike Diablo 2

    Build variety, what've they got? Does the game encourage jack-of-all-trades, or are specialists preferred?

    Yeah. Since it's a classless system, I guess it would be nice to know more about the leveling system, how do skills works, how do you get them, If there is some kind of synergy between them (like Diablo), if there are passive skills, how the attributes of system works, etc.

    - What are their thoughts about level scaling? Will there be any, and if so, how much etc.

    - How are they going to balance crafting and finding items? Will some / most of the best items in the game be rare or very rare drops from boss monsters and not attainable from crafting?

    Looks like you have 1-4 + mouse buttons for abilities. At a glance, that seems more like gamepaDiablo 3.
