Yes, I'd like to see what other Kickstarter backers here think, too??

Really like the look of a lot of the stuff you've done so far and noticed particularly the variety of different classes you appear to be able to roll. Currently, though the combat looks a bit static (and I don't understand exactly how it works from the description) as I don't think you've got any mob animation yet?

Have a look at this kickstarter: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/…e-rpg?ref=live and this by the project's creator: http://www.gamasutra.com/view/news/1…p#.UQgb8meUOul

Personally, I think that game looks a bit run of the mill and is likely to be somewhat dull (not as if procedural generation, and Kevin Bacon system, hasn't been tried before, viz the first elder scrolls) - why not just buy something like torchlight if u want to play with a single character and no in depth role playing and progression? However, it probably shows some of the stuff you might need to have in to attract support - i.e. you would probably need to sex things up a bit with more animations & artwork.

P.S. If you think there's only a limited market - Look at the reaction to news here of a possible remake of Realms of Arcadia: http://www.rpgwatch.com/forums/showthread.php?t=19360. Most of us who played those games are still alive (at least from the neck up) and probably some of the younger pen/paper lot will be interested too.
