I love sidequests as much as the next RPGer, but I don't necessarily need / want to be able to everything in one playthrough. I like the idea of RPGs where say if you put off a sidequest for "too…

The site seems a bit mysterious in how it will all work… Looks like it is in 2nd place right now. So assuming your game concept is selected, then they'll run a sort of crowdfunding campaign for…

It is pretty bizarre… I can only think that the reason has to do with the fact that expansions (aka DLCs) now tend to be shorter than the base game. At best, they feel like long side quests.. Gone…

No.

It's an old school style, single-player, party-based RPG. The combat style would technically make it a JRPG, but it doesn't really seem to have any other typical JRPG tropes or qualities from…

To me this says more about the bland, generic, simplistic quests that dominate games like Skyrim than anything. If you couldn't tell the difference between a procedural quest and a hand-crafted one,…
