Default King's Bounty - GenCon Preview @ Destructoid

August 19th, 2008, 09:55
Another mini-preview and video at Destructoid, this time for King's Bounty. Apparently WoW was an inspiration:
King’s Bounty: The Legend is an upcoming PC strategy RPG developed by 1C and published by Atari. Unlike most strategy RPGs, the concept behind King’s Bounty is to create a unique and rich experience outside of the turn-based style battles. The game certainly has an MMO vibe accompanying it. As I watched the presenter at Gen Con navigate the massive map, pick up quests, buy items, and interact with NPCs, all that I could think of was how inspirational World of Warcraft has been to the creation of even single-player PC RPGs.
More information.

Sounds like there are WOW-fanbois even within some circles of developers.
