Great Game!

I registered just to say what a great, fun game this was. I played the demo for about 30 minutes and ordered before finishing it.

I almost ragequit at the long part with no campfires, but eventually made it through that and the rest of the game was the right level of challenge. It was literally the most fun I've had with a game in years.

I'm a professional developer and published one shareware game in the '90s you've probably never heard of, so I know what it takes to make a polished, finished product. Very impressive job.

Funny, I found myself wishing a game with combat like TOEE would be released. I hated the game really but the combat was fantastic. Great job!

I just have a love/hate relationship with this game. It's so awesome it's almost cult for me. Because I have never experience before a game with so damn high amount of rage quits yet so addictive.

I mean, I was describing this game to some friends and how great it is but how much I want to punch my screen and my friend reply "How can a game that is so hard that makes you rage be a good game?".

Well, it is. I can't explain it. But it's for other reasons too, the hypertext menus that describe every skill, every rule, every character sheet, even the enemies and NPCs character sheets, full combat options besides attacking, it will take a long to learn everything and the best strategy for this game because I die, I die all the time. Even the AI is deviously genius in a way that makes some of the battles so annoying, especially when they combine those entagle, web, paralyze and other spells and you just can't move for few rounds and even if you break free, they will throw another web, or burn you with fireball which also burn the web, but then throw another web, ugh. I have also seen enemies grappling my players or pushing you to the fire behind, wow.

And I've noticed that the rest places is the fire, which really reminds me of dark souls which I have not played yet but I know it's considered hard. And makes me wonder, the creator of this game might have been inspired by dark souls, especially about how hard and challenging this game is. I really need to search for some good strategies to survive.

"Checkpoints" were a thing for a long time before DaS, and KOTC came out 2 years before it as well. :mrgreen:
