The links have "%20" too many spaces i think!

I hope it's easier than Wizardry… 3 was it? My party got roflstomped usually and repeatedly in the first 2 levels IIRC

joxer October 17th, 2013 14:14

IIRC I said I'm buing this game definetly… But can't remember why.

EDIT:
Ah, yes, comicstyle drawings. I don't need the demo to instabuy this!

Hey Corwin, your links aren't clickable, only copy-pasteable.

One of my kickstarter pledges that I have been really looking forward to.

Corwin October 18th, 2013 00:16

Sorry about that, I set them up in the editor, so I don't know what's wrong. I'm not very good with all this tech stuff!! :)

Caidh October 18th, 2013 00:43

I was an early kickstarter supporter of this. I love the game style, art style, even the music. I played the original web demo several months and really didn't want it to end!

Looking forward to release eagerly. For those who didn't kickstart it, it is an amazingly low price for such a great game.

I fixed it up as best as I could on the front page for you Corwin since I don't have the press release, or original information.:handshake:

Corwin October 18th, 2013 01:45

Thanks Couch, now you know why I rarely post newsbits!! :)

wolfing October 18th, 2013 13:35

There was a kickstarter for this? Damn, I missed it, would have pledged for sure.

The Hulk October 22nd, 2013 20:50

I tried out the demo for awhile. I like it, it reminds me a lot of Wizardry IV: The Return of Werdna. I only wish they had had more money to spend on making the game, to make it at least on par with something like what Wizardry 9 should have been, graphics and gameplay-wise.

Fluent October 23rd, 2013 01:06

Looks interesting, but I'd really have to get used to that art style.

RunawayDev October 25th, 2013 20:18

Kudos to the combined efforts of Corwin and Couchpotato putting this up!
Dev here if anybody's got any questions/comments you'd like me to address.

I'll toss in some of the links in BBCode so that they're more click friendly, then pop in some screenshots at the end of the post.
