I really like what I see here, it evokes good memories of Eye of the Beholder and Lands of Lore, and a few others. I'll truly be picking this one up in the future, and thanks for keeping us updated on the progress!

Thanx!
I am doing my best to have this as visually appealing as my skills allows (not a designer), although a lot of work is hidden at the moment, like the rulebook being written, the battle, spell & event system, movement etc. all of which will be uncovered in a proper demo. The current state of game is a lot closer to that now, with the aforementioned changes.

New update!
I worked a lot on ground items since they play a major role (graphically) on realism and there are about 25-30 in the game.
Not lazy stuff, all those are models converted to pixel & shadowed. I'm not a modeller so this consumed a lot of my time to get them done.
Not final, but the major part has been done. Some items will be reworked and/or replaced.
Elsewhere, i reworked my title screen, designed my new navigation cursor, implemented a new lever (DM inspired) & changed my fonts on character window.
Nothing fancy but a necessary step to technical completion that a demo requires.
There are still some lighting issues on the world (mainly walls). I will deal with them in time.
Hope you like it & add some feedback. Check some images:
