    I recommend naming threads more informatively.

    Not mentioned in the article - this is apparently also a board game. Which is going to be on Kickstarter soon (I think?)

    The only thing that could make a game inspired by mediocrity and written by mediocrity worse is throwing in time travel, so... good job, Mike!

    Yeah, I went through a phase where almost every game I played I named a character Tenaka, Ananais or Decado. They still come out from time to time, the Decado character type fits pretty much every crpg going.

    RIP David Gemmell.

    That trailer has got me intrigued tbh.
    Celtic lore is always a plus. Two parties in two periods of time could mean (it won't though because if they namedrop Dragon Age Origins they are dumbfucks) that there are riddles or puzzles with interactions between both. And while it's RTwP that formation feature looks nice in concept and could make for tactically deeper combat.

    Following this with mild curiosity now.

    Since it's RTwP I'm automatically not interested but even if I was, I'd be very wary considering the developer. Gato Salvajes previously Kickstarted a point & click adventure game "AR-K" over 5 years ago… And just announced that the final 4th episode of AR-K will supposedly be released in February 2019 (as well as sending physical copies) after absolutely no communication for 3 years.

    So assuming they actually release part 4 in February they will several years beyond the estimated release date (which wouldn't necessarily be a big problem if the game was any good), but Steam reviewers certainly didn't praise the game… The studio has done nothing to indicate they're capable of creating a decent game of any genre, let alone a CRPG spiritual successor of DA:O, BG2, etc. Also, they never released a DRM-free copy of AR-K which was promised to backers.

    Their only other released game is Bullshot which seems to be a Contra-like shooter.

    Even if this was my dream game I wouldn't trust this developer with my money considering how they handled their last Kickstarter. It boggles my mind that a developer can run a Kickstarter so terribly and then think they'll do another crowdfunding project, when they're still years behind on the first one… Sadly they might succeed because they hired an ex-Bioware guy. I've no idea how they even managed to hire a new creative director... I guess either the shooter must be selling well or Laidlaw was really desperate for work.

    It is but given the developer's track record you're going to need a time machine to play it.... It took them over 6 years and counting to complete a simple point & click adventure game, so I expect a CRPG to take them a couple of decades.

    Who's the hidden guy? NWN2, KOTOR2, New Vegas. None of the other writers in the image worked on those. Chris Avellone are you on this too??

    Am I missing something or is this game just pure combat?

    It's supposed to be inspired by Dragon Age: Origins so I wouldn't think so. It does seem that they don't have much beyond a combat engine at this point though (although I did notice what appears to be a snippet of a cutscene with dialogue in the combat formations video)
