A bit weird having all these projects remaking Morrowind on different engines. I sort of feel that all that RPG development expertise could be put to better use. I suppose it does illustrate that the…

Yes - and I don't reckon first person games are suitable for Indie development. It's an area where you just need too much cash to make something decent and inevitably something has to give.

I think it looks promising too and backed it on Kickstarter. Just a little concerned that it may not be fully cooked yet and the recent video clips don't diminish that feeling.

I agree that the…

Hmm - Am suspicious about this. If they think that the game is approaching a releasable state, then they should make a series of release candidates and subject them to testing, rather than rushing to…

Don't know quite what to make of this project. Just have to wait and see, I guess. They claim to be throwing quite a lot of bodies at it.

I think this isn't so much a scam, as a bunch of passionate amateurs, who don't have the experience or resources to pull it off. Many of their design ideas were way too intricate and complicated ever…

Embers Of Caerus website nuked

Just noted this on Massively:

EOC had a "prototype" funded on Kickstarter some 10 months ago. They had…

Not sure I want to play a stunted fork lift driver wearing a space suit. As fantasies go that isn't the first one that springs to my mind.

Obsidian is quite a large outfit with around 200 employees. At an average cost of employment of $50k that gives them a salary bill around $10m a year. Since POE only got around $4m via crowd funding…

"So far of all my KS, this is the one that is most questionable"

Yeah - in reality it sounds like they are no where near releasing a decent game and may have to bail out with something half baked.

Did get the impression from the last few updates that they may have bitten off a bit more than they can chew and are cutting back on some features. Hope they stick around until they've got something…

Yes, but that's the point really - I didn't know enough about the game to make a decision and have flushed enough $ down the Kickstarter toilet :). I'd probably have given it the benefit of the doubt…

Wasn't sure what to make of this. On one hand it's better fleshed out than many failed Kickstarters. On the other, games in this genre tend to have budgets in the millions and it's hard to see them…

Usually games hit a point where your levelled mega party is no longer interesting or alternatively the game uses random perma death to force you into levelling new characters,…

Yeah - that would be nice, middleware such as Unity is an enabling factor, but some way to go yet. Platform specific controls and screen size are still a drag on making universal gaming feasible.

Good interview of what looks like an interesting game.

I have somewhat mixed feelings about the permadeath mechanic in games like XCOM EU, because they often don't balance it too well - deaths…
