Fans of the German RPG Drakensang may be in for more of what they like, as the publisher DTP Entertainment has <a href="http://bluesnews.com/cgi-bin/board.pl?action=viewstory&threadid=95734">announced</a> Drakensang: The River of Time, a prequel to Drakensang. Here's the official spiel.
<br>
<blockquote>Hamburg/Germany, February 17th, 2009 – Hamburg/Germany based publisher dtp entertainment has today confirmed that developer Radon Labs is working on a prequel to the award winning title: The Dark Eye: Drakensang, which has won the “best German RPG 2008” award at the German Developer Awards.

<br>
<br>
“Fans of Drakensang and RPGs get exactly what they want: A new story in the embosomed Drakensang universe, bringing as much innovations as tried and true game elements”, describes Bernd Beyreuther, Creative Director at Radon Labs, Drakensang: The River Of Time.

Okay so when the fuck am I going to be able to play the first game? Announce a release date for that before you announce a new game.

I've been playing the demo recently and the combat is dead boring while the dialog suffers from ye olde translation problems, plus navigating in the caves was extremely annoying.

Not sure if I'll pick this up, to be honest...I'll wait for some reviews I guess.

They exist?
Any game can (will) have fans.

I was thinking of restarting the game with a battle mage if they brought out an add on that fixes some of the issues... *sigh*

No because it's too obscure. Nobody knows about it. I found it in the selling list of a Romanian hacker. Yeah, a hacker was the only person who sold it. Never saw it in any store or read anything about it in the gaming press.

So, basically, no.

On the game?
Well, it's a rather "light" RPG. You're some former hero with a sword that speaks and levels up together with you. I don't remember much of it since I played it long ago, but there wasn't any real C&C and combat was rather mediocre. It was nothing special. And it's a rather obscure game, too, I dunno where you can get it nowadays [except maybe torrent sites and ebay]. It was published [and maybe also developed?] by JoWood.
