Looks great, except I don't like the hexagonal grid on the battlefield, I hope they include an option to hide that.

Looks very much like comics - is this a trend after WOW ?

Apart from that, I find the Unicorn insanely cute !!!

All in all it looks quite promising to me.

They probably will - most strategy games allow you to view / hide the 'board' elements.

I think it looks cool … I know I enabled it in the Mage Knight DS game.

Looking forward to seeing how this game turns out. Looks a bit outdated though.

Edit: I just watched the trailer. It looks really nice.

There was an 80s game called King's Bounty that was the precusor to the Heroes of Might and Magic series.

Here's a link to the original King's Bounty. I played it on the Amiga at the time and it was pretty good.

May all your hits be crits!

I really like the 2D artwork they have used in the character screens etc. The 3D screens aren't that bad either.

I was originally worried it would be a Heroes of M&M clone but it looks like this is certainly not the case. So many good concepts coming out of russian/eastern europe these days, I just hope this one avoids the bugs that have plagued most of the other stuff.

Favourite RPGs of all time: Wizardry 6, Ultima 7/7.2, Fallout2, Planescape Torment, Baldurs Gate 2+TOB, Jagged Alliance 2, Ravenloft: The stone prophet, Gothic 2, Realms of Arkania:Blade of destiny (not the HD version!!) and Secret of the Silver Blades.

I had the original Kings Bounty on my Sega Genesis years ago, It was an awesome game for it's time.
