Balcony just released the Balrum BETA today for backers. Thought i'd start a thread for those wanting to discuss it. Downloading now, hopefully my daughter gets her nap in and lets me try it out

Kickstarter Update with new video:

I can't get over how far the camera is zoomed out. Is there an option to bring it closer?

They did talk about being able to play it in almost any resolution past 960×576, so i'm assuming tweaking that and the window/full screen might do it, but I haven't found resolution settings anywhere yet, so i'm assuming they disabled it so far for the beta.

Actually after some tweaking, it looks like you can adjust the resolution by resizing the window, otherwise it just auto-adjusts in fullscreen

This is a game I really WISH that I would have backed. Looks great…reminding me a lot of the Eschalon series at first glance.

I will be eagerly awaiting the full release!

I'm surprised how little attention this gets. I watched a bunch of the "lets play" vids on YouTube and this looks like a real gem.

I'm sure I'll be playing this immediately after release, plus the obligatory 10 patches or so. It has an old school look that really appeals to me.

Well we covered the game since it was announced, and on Kickstarter.

Link - http://www.rpgwatch.com/games/balrum-553.html

I tried to get an interview three times but the developer never responded.

To you people in the beta or following closely,

can you have summons/ minions/ henchmen in this game? I find single character FPP games to be rather boring, and it's even more inexcusable in an isometric (non action heavy) game.

Don't have an answer but have you played Eschalon? They are single character. I played the first two and liked them alot. Normally I prefer party based games but I found Eschalon surprisingly fun.
