    I'm probably going to purchase the remastered game. Heck, I had pretty fun while playing the "demo" version of Ego Draconis, and if they've improved on some of the flaws that game had then I'm sold.

    I don't approve of the steam-specific armour bullshit though. I don't see any reason why Gamestop, Steam, Walmart and most other stores offers overpowered shit for the player so the game will be over quicker.

    Have they confirmed yet whether DKS will be available as a patch for those who have the OC plus vanilla expansion?

    You get a 33% discount on the Ultimate Platinum Edition: Director's Cut if you have the steam version of Ego Draconis.

    I played the "demo" version, and i really liked it. I'm definitely going to pick up the Dragon Knight Saga.

    A long time ago. But i don't know when it's going to be available for download. Check their forums maybe?

    That's not discount, that's partial refund for having to endure shitty DRM.
