    Hi there! I'm kinda doing a little "let's play" on my youtube channel of the obscure retro-CRPG gem "Bloodstone: An Epic Dwarven Tale"! The game has been a pretty big influence on SKALD so it's fun to get to dig into it a bit :)





    Have a great weekend!

    Hi guys!

    Youtuber Nookrium just posted this great "let's play" of the SKALD alpha demo! Game is still in an early state but you get a good feeling for how it flows and plays at this point! Be sure to check out the vid and give Nookrium a like and subscribe for his great work!



    I you prefer poor audio, dad-noises and Norwenglish, there is also another episode of my misguided let's play of Bloodstone :-D



    Cheers,

    AL

    The first thing I notice watching those SKALD videos is always that the music is really damn good.

    Grab the Codex by the pussy Pathfinder: Kingmaker
    Hi, the game looks great. Definitely the right way to go about making a 8-bit inspired RPG. I have a small suggestion: You scroll the dialogue text instead of showing it at once, and right now it scrolls at constant speed. Instead, place a small delay for each full stop and comma. Doing this is a small tweak, but it'll make the text flow much better, as it is a closer approximation of how people actually read.

    Game looks like it has definite promise, though they won't get a bloody cent out of me. Hannah and Joe at Whalenaught Studios taught me that lesson.

    Hi there!

    Another development video of me working on SKALD is up! Today we continue on the save system. Give it a look and please don't be afraid to give me some pointers if you see something you would do differently :)



    Cheers,

    Your posts make my day. I'm very excited for SKALD. Is it coming to Steam or Gog?

    Steam is a given. It's possible to vote for the game on GOG polls. My gut feeling says that GOG will accept SKALD on their storefront.

    It's a little funny how he redesigned the interface to use the mouse, yet kept the old target selection buttons instead of just clicking on the enemy.

    It's fairly true to the inspiration, at least. The CRPG Addict would have an aneurysm.

    New update: https://www.skaldrpg.com/2020/04/project-update/
    TL;DR: The game will have stealth and autocombat option, he's aiming for a September 2020 release. Modding tools are planned.
