Indeed, I'd not heard of this one either. Appreciate the info!

Looks a lot more appealing than Demon Gaze Extra imo, but I still have a hard time seeing how they justify the AAA price.

Decent game. The production values and all that are extremely high. It's niche. Still insane to charge AAA prices. I lost interest pretty fast and wish I'd waited for a sale. I lost interest in Bravely Default quickly too.

Recently released Potatoes in Full Bloom is overall better IMO, 1/3 the cost, has a demo.

I guess it depends what you like.

Looks pretty solid for a dungeon crawler, might give it a try sometime.

I only wish these games weren't so down to business, like jumping from town menus straight to dungeon crawls, but I suppose that's the point for its fans.

The price is obviously too high but I'd still consider it. My concern though is that part of what I liked about Strangers of Sword City was the difficulty, and reviews I read for this describe it as being much easier. I know that would be a plus for many, but for me it makes me less likely to want to make the $60 leap to an indie title. Maybe if I read more about it.

Exactly. Nice graphics, but I think Xulima is way better in combat and over-world walk and very possibly in its excellent story, as there are animated - some very cute - monsters, on both attack and hit.

No mouse support… maybe it isn't needed, but that sounds annoying. That and the price likely will keep me away from it.

That does seem like an odd choice, the no mouse support thing. Perhaps that's something that will be added later, we can only hope.

As I mentioned on the other thread their games have a history of getting deep sales at some point. I have this one wishlisted, and have already passed up -25%. I'm waiting for the -40 to 50% mark, depending on how impatient I become.

I played their other games only with the keyboard, which works fine as everything is turn based, though I would have prefered mouse support simply because I am used it to it.

I should do that too, I'm much more likely to take a chance at $30 than $60.

Nod, count me in as another that will be waiting on a significant discount before picking this one up.
