Sorry about that, I set them up in the editor, so I don't know what's wrong. I'm not very good with all this tech stuff!!

If God said it, then that settles it!!

I was an early kickstarter supporter of this. I love the game style, art style, even the music. I played the original web demo several months and really didn't want it to end!

Looking forward to release eagerly. For those who didn't kickstart it, it is an amazingly low price for such a great game.

I fixed it up as best as I could on the front page for you Corwin since I don't have the press release, or original information.

I tried out the demo for awhile. I like it, it reminds me a lot of Wizardry IV: The Return of Werdna. I only wish they had had more money to spend on making the game, to make it at least on par with something like what Wizardry 9 should have been, graphics and gameplay-wise.

Looks interesting, but I'd really have to get used to that art style.
