Hinterland - Review @ CrispyGamer
CrispyGamer has reviewed Hinterland, recommending a "try" rather than "buy", primarily because of interface issues. A bit on general gameplay:
So you explore the hinterland, killing everything that's in your path and leveling up along the way. You can bring up to three other villagers with you, but if they leave town they can't do their jobs. If your blacksmith gets killed while adventuring, you'll need to find a new one. Once you hit a certain critical mass of villagers, however, these choices drop in importance. The new big choice is when and where to explore. But if your village is raided by hostiles while you are out gallivanting in gnoll country, it falls upon your villagers to defend the homestead, and many of them may not be up for the job. Once you take your most powerful villagers on a grand adventure, who will keep the monsters away?
