    "I was very close to signing a contract with S2 Games to co-develop the title (at the time, I was doing writing for them), but it fell through, and I switched gears to make Primordia"

    Wonder what game this was for (for S2 Games)?

    Seems somewhat Thea'ish in terms of the mythological backdrop---good.

    I don't know Thea, so I can't say. I guess I'd tentatively say that Darklands and KoDP are probably the closest in mythological feel, but that seems presumptuous. :D

    I'd never heard of Moonstone before -- what an awesome looking game! Does it play well?

    Yes. The turn-based system is a good idea (the battles are real time), especially for multiplayer. You need to spend your turn properly, buy stuff, distribute xp points. You need to learn enemy patterns, at the beginning you'll often get one-shot. The 4 different starting points are a a very good idea. It's particularly good with friends. Most of all the game is very atmospheric.

    Good luck with Fallen Gods, it looks very good.

    It was a nice Amiga era beat-em-up in board game setting for up to 4 players.

    I feel like kids who grew up with Amigas had a charmed existence that can never be replicated. . . .

    Animations and art look sweet. I hope the UI in Fallen Gods ends up being as sexy as Star Captain's mock-up :bounce:

    MRY - Sounds like a blend of Banner Saga (bleakness, Norse theme, vanished gods) and SITS (play as a god trapped in mortal form who must return to astral plane.)

    Suggested change of name: Cougar in the Cloudlands

    A valkyrie disenchanted with her last 10 unsuccessful marriages decides to go on the sex adventure of her life among the young gods of Valhalla.

    I'd play it.

    Like what i'm hearing, always thought that Lone Wolf had some bloody good ideas for roleplaying and i've used em in a few games. The money pouch for instance, 50 gp and thats your lot, gold became something you wanted and tried to collect and was bloody useful. Always remember Ragadorn in Fire on Water, short but so fucking sweet and full of choice, amazing amount of work put in to that and the follwoing coach ride and assassination.

    Good luck man.

    Shame that space game wasn't made.

    A few tweeks and the UI and shit could have turned into a neat looking take on a Star Flight type game.
