    The dude narrating has a very weird way of speaking. So over the top.

    Also, why is the dwarf using a fan as a weapon?

    Also also, "Let the player fight a challenging fight and at the end in a cutscene destroy all the loot" school of terrible game design. It would spoil the player if he was able to take the stuff of the defeated enemies, just like it did in BG and IWD!

    Also also also, do every fucking game this days have to have voice acting? Even the small indie games done on a budget? It ends up sounding really corny and unproffesional if it is done cheap.

    Well, that's not derivative or anything. :P I guess I'm impressed that they got this far, though.

    Is that the same guy who voiced like half of the modded npcs for Baldur's Gate 2? Jason Compton i think.

    The game looks like PoE all over again. I don't think i can take another PoE so soon. And i doubt it will be less shitty than PoE. Time will tell i guess.

    It was fought between bavarian dwarves and swiss dwarves after the latter performed an absurd and heretical ceremony at the brand new seventh tunnel. Scrooge can tell you all about it.

    This actually looked decent. Reminds me more of BG than PoE does.

    lol it looks like Sword Coast Legends with a 2D background. But hey, I'll give them a newspost when the Kickstarter launches, for good times' sake.

    Well... It looks like a decent RTwP RPG gameplay wise.
    But man, the voice-overs. They sound like its a single guy trying different accents and tones. Who is not a professional.
    This lord Balrun for example sounds completely unnatural , like someone is reading a book for the first time trying to narrate it or sth

    Rarely have I been convinced of the innate quality and limitless potential of a video game by a single word. In fact, I struggle to recall if that has ever been the case at all. Until now, that is. And that word is CRUSHMASTER.
