First Look:
I played the alpha version for 11 hours and solved most quests in this area.

I played a team of Warrior + Wizard

Positive:
++ Good stat, skill, traits system
++ many quests, subquests
++ nonlinear game
++ combat with friendly fire
++ skill checks in conversations
++ much humor, dialogs are fun
++ good story - you start with a murder quest -> like Ultima VII
++ world interaction: digging, secret buttons, secret entrances
++ enemies have a fixed level -> no auto scaling
++ inventory is good, sorting function not implemented yet
++ you can barter with nearly everyone


Negative:
— combat way too easy
— Wizards are too strong (game is not balanced yet)
— running around / guiding your chars / camera could be more "fluid"


Bugs:
one crash to the desktop in 11 hours
inventory can get corrupted if you collect too many things

***

This game reminds me a lot of Ultima 7. The quests are already fun, combat needs to be more challenging. -> Good stable alpha!
