    what a unrealistic price point for something that doesn't promise...

    edit: character costumization.... I want...
    How long it takes for flopped products to lower their price?

    I bought it but the download is busted for now and it seems I'm not the only one.

    Kind of an unfortunate day to release your Early Access game, on the same day as a zillion free demos.

    It's an unplayable mess but there're some interesting ideas beneath the junk, the only reason to buy it now is to support the devs, it's pretty broken even by early access standards. The animations are exceptionally atrocious but the character models remind me of 90s CG so there's some charm to them. There's a tactical camera but no reason to use it - you can't move the camera away from the character, the enemies teleport on top of your heads like DA2 and the rogue can't scout it stealth, there's no stealth at all (or I couldn't find it).

    So there was a 4GB update that erased all save-files so I decided to give it another go from the start. Funny enough once I hit the first post prologue combat area my party got switched with the low level prologue party that gets oneshot and I also can't return to the previous non-combat area because the trigger to leave the area is also gone. That's literally the first 10 minutes of the game. The overall quality and tone of the game reminds me of that UE3 WoW porn game.

    Guilty until proven otherwise. This garbage should not even be worth pirating.

    Yeah, tell that writer to look into the content for the few quests that MCA wrote for the game. And while they're at it they can tell PCgamer and other sites to just say he wrote only a few quests for the game, so that thy don't write this in the first paragraph of their previews: Boasting RPG veterans such as fantasy writer Chris Avellone.

    No disrespect to MCA (I'll leave that to the SJWs) but I'm a bit fed up of being hoodwinked into buying games where he's "involved". They hate everything he stands for after an internet rumour, but are happy to use his name for major gaming mags to promote selling their game.

    A few notes on quality of writing from Steam discussions:

    I can't say about dipshit, but this is just a perfect little gem:

    I'd say it looks to have so little personality it would've gotten buried under just about anything that got released these past few days. Borders on video game mock-up, this.

    I wonder if we'll ever find out why this game, of all the many promising and not-so-promising indie RPGs being made in Europe these days, was the one that got a bunch of gamedev celebrities to pile onto it. Who are these Spaniards, what did they do to deserve that clout? Was it just a lucky break - they got Mike Laidlaw interested and everybody followed him?

    They might just really like Dragon Age for some unfathomable reason.

    Guarantee the same people would piss themselves in anger if you cast a Berber in a film set in ancient Egypt.

    I don't know if that guy isn't just painted/tanned, but FWIW there are non-Celtic foreigner characters in this game. See the Kickstarter updates earlier itt.

    I hope they feature the real black Hebrews and not the fake whitey ones.
