I actually finished it, I was close dropping it at the end of act 2 but it slightly improves act 3+4. There is some nice (non-linear) exploration going on in the middle part of the game, few half-decent combat encounters the rest is pretty trashy. The limitation of the dev team clearly shows in all parts, and not in a lovingly janky way. Also, not only are the loading time outrageously long, for some reason they seem to deliberate want you to load new areas as often as possible. In one instance, you have to pass two loading screens before entering a dungeon, in between nothing but a tiny empty cellar. In settlements they placed most NPCs in buildings, instead of moving some outside etc.

I started a couple of times, and ended quitting around the first city. It was okay, and had a decent BG1 vibe, but 'm waiting for load time improvement and the DLCs.

If is worth a buy, depends on what is good for you. for me Is certainly better than BG3/Solasta but I would't consider it as good as kingmaker for eg.

Does this game have plot-important, companion, strong, independent, ugly sassy black women, in late 15c armory, with italian accent and feathers growing out of their pussy cloaca? No? Maybe hardcore HD ogre gangbangs? Also not? Goblin foot fetish, at least? Not even that? Lack of quality RPG content explains lack of interest for this game on Codex

Ok, first impressions: Not bad for a debut product. Thoroughly average, with a few interesting ideas here and there, which then are made redundant by thoroughly retarded ideas part of which seem to be introduced through a very lackluster effort to stand out, and another part seems to be borne out of just being incompetent and limited. The latter is mostly down to design choices, such as not having axe / hammer / mace two-handers and swords being by far the optimal choice for everything.

The greed mechanic is laughable, the drying/brewing schtick is something only a basement-dwelling autist would enjoy, but the game has its moments: quite a few enjoyable fights, interesting locations, not horrible to look at most of the time and most importantly, it does scratch that 90-00 ies janky rpg itch.

Hopefully they can learn from this and produce better titles in the future, that is if they can overcome the inherent autism within themselves.

This is newbie Unity programming, the team behind Stygian had the same issue with excessive loads. I think it comes down to the use of Unity “scenes” and lack of ability / confidence to do things outside of proscribed tutorials.

Stygian’s team seemed liked it had lots of artists and creatives with little technical know-how. gRapeOcean may have a similar composition.

Sure, I get that. What I don‘t get is why they are then not at least trying to minimize the amount of loading screens. There are so many unnecessary loading screens/areas. Areas where you only spent a few seconds in should not be behind a long ass loading screen.

Pillars 1-2 were okay games nothing special.
This was shit. One of the biggest disappointments in the last few years. Was looking forward for this game for over a year.

My bf says you can die also in Story mode ( = lowestest difficulty in black geyser) so it is definitely more improved than pillars in this respect of aspect
