Pretty neat Gold Box-esque role-playing game. I'm enjoying it. It has tiles that have random things to find, combat is turn-based with satisfaction and it has competently written dialogue and even race and skill specific dialogue (with the conversation lifted from Sword of Zehir, nice!) Overall it's a pretty neat little gem. Anyone played it?

I've not heard of this one at all, I take it that this game isn't available via great old games or steam? The gold box reference well hooked me!

Good shout! Yeah I've played it, and thoroughly enjoyed it. For my last play through I used a party entirely composed only of dwarves which was a fun challenge - two fighters, a cleric and a thief. The lack of a magic user wasn't too bad at first, but later in the game I really missed the AoE spells. I remember there was one fight on a bridge that was particularly awkward without ranged combat and AoE. You can have a lot of fun trying out different party compositions.

It's still in development at the minute so there is more content to come.

Cool @Pongo , glad to see you liked it! It is pretty neat, lots of party builds to play with and character development. I'm enjoying it quite a bit even if I am getting rocked a lot in combat early (just need to level up, heh.)

My description doesn't really do it justice. By 'random things to find on tiles' I mean there are hand-crafted encounters to find on certain tiles, whether you find wood to build a powerful bow or it's an encounter with wolves, you'll explore and find different unique and handcrafted encounter tiles. It's a cool gem but I want to finish up my Outward run before really delving into it more.
