[ ] You are in shock over the low system requirements, thinking that a game with such low system requirements must suck
[ ] You are happy about the low system requirements because your system sucks
[ ] You are very displeased about the low system requirements because you just bought a quad core and quad SLI system.
[ ] You are in awe at the devs' mad leet optimization skills
[ ] All of the above
[ ] None of the above

Please pick one since I'm not sure what you were trying to hint at .

The game doesn't look bad at all, though it does seem to be (just) an action, hack&slash RPG.

Rebelmind specialise in budget hack'n'slashers with decent but simple gameplay - Space Hack is their most succesful product. Those specs are exactly what they do.

Number 2 I guess (3.2, x850xt, 1Gig) but also I simply don't buy it. I'm calling BS on the system requirements based on those screen shots. I'm thinking NWN2 levels are more realistic. 64MB video card? Come on!!!!

The screenshots could be doctored .
Seriously though, they are only 667 by 500 res. Smaller screenshots often tend to give the impression of higher detail/quality graphics than they actually are. And check out the difference between the last screenshot in the lower right corner and the one diagonal to the left above it. That's a huge drop in visual quality right there IMHO. If the screenie in the lower right corner is more indicative of the actual gfx quality than the rest of the screens then I'm buying the specs, especially if they have achieved a high degree of scalability (those specs could be for 320x240 res w/ all effects off after all ).

Whether the specs are hooey or not, those are nice screenshots. The artwork is very far from the generic stuff you might expect. Maybe the visual quality is scalable, i.e., turning off a lot of enhanced options on lower spec rigs.

Gamebanshee has a preview up that gives a look at the gameplay.

Where there's smoke, there's mirrors.

I'm hoping to grab a preview of this one and will certainly let you guys know if I manage it!
