I think it looks pretty awesome. Out of all the projects I've backed this is the one Im looking forward to the most I think. I just love the art, I've been reading their forum and Im just in love with this game. .

Joxer, I understand that everyone has different tastes and all that. But I really don't get the Banner Saga and Pirate101 comparison? Unless you were being sarcastic and I completly missed it.

Pirate101 from what I understand of their web page and what I read of mmorpg.com, is a F2P MMO with cutesey generic 3d graphics and self proclaimed family friendly content. It also doesn't have a central story or such (Like most MMOs).


(Pirate101 is a free-to-play, pirate-themed MMOG from KingsIsle Entertainment, makers of Wizard101. The game is set in the same universe as its wizard-themed predecessor, so players can expect to continue to challenge the Clockwork Empire. Players begin the game by creating a pirate and then setting out to gain a ship and crew. Pirate101 offers swashbuckling ground combat, but its main fighting focus is comprised of ship-to-ship combat high in the sky among the skyways and floating islands in the Weave. )

While The Banner Saga is a single player RPG with TBS combat. It's a game with a lot of mature content, a deep story line and huge lore background…That will be realesed over 3 full campains. The Lore is a nice read for anyone remotely interested. (http://stoicstudio.com/forum/lore.php)

Also, the graphics are more of a 2d "hand painted" type.


Banner Saga Factions is a bit different I guess. I mean it's a different game in that it's only the combat engine pretty much, taken out of the game and released on steam as a free multiplayer game. It helps them test and balance the combat so its also fun during the single player game….and it gets the word out.
