    It's good, buy it.


    It essentially seems to be the same a King's Bounty. One hero rides around and interacts with the environment, and fights things. Like King's Bounty, it is cumulative, in that if you are winning, you tend to get stronger and keep winning, but if you screw up you can enter a death spiral (I call that plus)

    Plus:
    Different setting
    Every fight seems winnable, but not too hard to lose.
    I like that supplies and basic support is an issue (running out of food is an excellent way to enter a death spiral).
    The story and events are interesting

    Minus:
    Somewhat limited units (i.e. no half-jaguars so far)
    I have not had a battle with >6 friendlies in it

    anything really. Are you playing on a difficulity which reduces your damage output? Equipment seems to matter a decent bit too.

    Since when did contributing reviewers become some secret you have to vaguely hint about instead of just saying who it is?

    If you have anywhere near normal settings for HP / attack then yeah, 3-4 hits is enough. Combat is mostly decided in 5-10 turns.

    The second expedition is more successful thus far, 2 doctors (though one at the moment) and 3 hunters and a bit more knowledge of the area is helping. 'Smartest' AI seems decent, though sometimes doing odd things.

    As much an incline an increased difficulty is, this has always been a nono for me and one of the biggest detractors of early AI in games. If the AI doesn't play by the same rules then the game is shit, period. Whether this is actually the case, I do not know.

    I believe it is not, he's just butthurt about RNG. I had quite a sequence of luck strike already, while the AI kept missing at point-blank range.

    Some humanities subject because that's where the hotter molestation targets lie in academia, I think Western Literature.

    Sadly, as far as I'm aware, the days of professors as objects of forbidden desire seems to be gone, or at least in a slump. :(

    Her lord and master backed this on Kickstarter, she wouldn't give it an objective review.
