Chimera Entertainment develops “Age of Dreams”

Chimera Entertainment, an independent Munich game developer, is announcing the action role playing game “Age of Dreams” for next-gen consoles and PC.
Munich, 14.08.2008 – Unusual hero development, thrilling combat, versatile sandbox-game play and a novel online experience!
After their innovative title “Windchaser”, Chimera Entertainment once again mixes familiar role play elements with unique ideas and wraps them up with a fresh and extraordinary look.
Creative Director Alexander Kehr is convinced of the “Age of Dreams” concept: “We came up with an entirely new class system, one that is diverse and gives the player a lot of freedom to experiment with.” Managing Director Hendrik Lesser adds: “With our first PC title, the team has matured as well as gained a lot of experience and self confidence. We are looking forward to the challenge of a cross platform title.”
Chimera Entertainment is going to present “Age of Dreams” to interested publishers at the games convention in Leipzig.

Thanks - I'd somehow missed that. Not really to my taste but let's see the details in due course.

Chimera did Windchaser not long ago.

Is it (Windchaser) any good?

Windchaser has been released by dtp earlier this year. It was generally well received and acknowledged as a good game (read: it´s a genre title ;) ), rating average slightly above 70%, which equals 80% in the English gaming world. Although billed as a RTS&RPG mix many reviewer were quite shocked how deep and demanding the tactical combat system was.
Going for an RPG makes perfect sense if they already have half an RPG including a proven combat system.

The reviews were clear: Windchaser is a surprisingly good game, especially given the extremely low budget. AFAIR it´s based upon a exam project / thesis by some people on the core team. A year later they found an experienced producer who hooked them up with dtp.
Maybe not really full price material, but for 20 bucks it´s certainly worth a look for fans of tactical combat.

Yes, it is. It was later expanded into a full game.

There's a demo out there which O played. The combat system reminded me heavily of stone, rock, scissors.
