WHat drove the decision to move to a much darker environment and setting in comparison to previous TDE games ?

The original games were released many years ago and fans of trhe serioes have grown older. We wanted the new game to reflect this by providing a more mature game for those fans, as well as having a game that is more representative of the modern genre's themes.
In short : "dark & gritty is what mature gamers want and what's the current fashion in the RPG genre right now."

Thank you for making it so easy for me to decide not to buy this game.

I have the suspicion that their decision was driven by the downfall of Radon Labs and their Drakensang series, too : Nice and cute graphics just don't sell.
Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
