    I've got to the second chapter and it's where the things go a bit silly. Right before the end of chapter 1 a trio of men who do not talk to anyone and are armed to the teeth appear in the town. A few quests later the cabin of your uncle get's raided and your brother goes missing, the said men disappear from the town. Nobody knows what happened and who could've possibly done this, the protagonist has got no clue about the situation as well, even though I tried interacting with those men earlier. Oh well, it's not like original Gothics were 100% consistent with their writing, but up to this point everything was super smooth, I especially liked the quests related to the local water mage.

    Archolos island seems to be huge, way bigger than Khorinis, I've been going to various places slaughtering local fauna for EXP, but no matter how far I go even bigger spaces open up before me. Gold is pretty tight here, unlike originals there's way fewer loot for sale and training requires money now. I've done all I could to get money, like hunting, cooking, exploring, doing quests and picking up everything that wasn't owned or nailed down and I still barely have any gold, haven't got to relieving people of their possesions yet, will probably get to that soon.

    I believe he wonders around somewhere during the day, personally I've found that it's easier to just wait till the evening, you can find him either drinking or sitting in the chair in the inn every evening. But if you have already completed his quests about his daughter burial, then you can find him praying at the graveyard.

    I thought that local shadowbeast was too fat to fit in the forest, so I had to cut him down a bit. Took a few attempts, because I forgot how to actually fight that thing.

    The turtles kick my ass really hard though, they use molerat AI and animations, which are completely busted on anything with fat stats. I found frogmen to be way too tough for me too, I even tried luring them into the town, but they've just slaughtered everyone there. It seems that they have about the same stats as the elite orcs from the original do.

    Is it me or enemies do respawn?

    If so, hunting can be way more profitiable.

    Devs have confirmed that there's no random / timed respawns, but there's extra spawns after quests as to not interrupt you while you're doing them

    Yo guys, where to get some ham in the village?

    It's ok. Could have been better, could have been worse. I've played original Gothic 2 with bad translation and german voice acting so it's nothing a Gothic player can't handle.

    I can't be the only one who came to the thread thinking the end of the title said "TITS OUT" at a glance can I?

    Had no idea this was dropping today, pretty fucking hyped. Unfortunately I'm doing a completionist run of ELEX right now, and I don't wanna overdose on PB jank.

    The two things I'm looking out for the most is the bugs and the translation. So far I noticed the achievement descriptions on Steam have pretty awful English translations, that worries me a little. Hopefully they also manage to replicate that good old Gothic feeling. I've seen so many mods that are so concerned with doing all sorts of impressive stuff with the original engine that they forgot to nail down the basic gameplay first.

    So glad I didn't pick up ELEX last week. This is hitting at just the right time.

    DX11 mode is pretty nice, the game looks sharp.

    The DX11 looks so beautiful I am afraid I am sinning having it running instead of the vanilla.

    Holy shit, peak steam players at 6,800 today. That's amazing! I knew there'd be a fair amount of people playing this, but I never expected it to be this popular. Hope this team goes on to work on more projects in the future. Really enjoying my time with this.

    Don’t suppose you know what those numbers translate to in number of “sales”?
    This is a good market test for older style gameplay selling in the modern times.

    I don't know for sure, but I'd be confident to say between Steam, GoG, and ModDB it's had over 15,000 unique downloads. Obviously a very rough estimate there, but it seems a likely ballpark.

    Bastian in the inn sells it.

    So far it plays exactly like Gothic with similar progression, exploration, quests, combat, scary forests and stuff, but way prettier and with some additions like cooking, scribing scrolls, crafting ammo, new types of potions and other things. Haven't encountered any bugs so far.

    I see people keep asking about quality of english translation, so I will dump some screenshots to showcase it below, make of it what you will.
