Default Flare - Preview @ PC Gamer

PC Gamer has a brief look at Flare, the indie action/RPG:
Fans of action RPGs have been spoiled silly over the last couple of weeks, but if you have any free time between Torchlight II and Borderlands 2 sessions – I mean, you are wasting around eight hours on sleep – you might want to keep an eye on Flare. The 0.16 alpha version of the ambitious open source RPG has just been added to Desura, with number 0.17 expected on the morrow.
Either one will grant you hours of isometric exploration and monster-stabbing, for the low, low price of absolutely nothing. The game is expected to move into beta in 2013, but there’s already a lot of bang for your no bucks, even if Flare is a little rough around the edges.
More information.

The one problem with flare is as soon as you leave an area all creatures respawn, since there are no teleport points it can be a lot or repetitive fighting to complete a single quest.

That's an instant "no buy" for me. I don't mind a degree of respawning if there's a reason for it, but I can't stand it when an entire level repopulates the second you exit it.

The game is free, so it should be "no try".

Version 0.17 is out today and adds teleporters!

Also, sometime before Beta we want to start storing the last N maps in memory (minus the art), so you can move back and forth through recent areas without getting reset each time.

Clint,

Excellent feature addition. I also like the new dungeon floor textures, the old floor tiles were too plain.
