Interesting. I saw hexes like a turn-based game but a whole lot of first-person real-time as well.

That's because it's another hybrid game of different genres. You manage a kingdom, fight battles, and yes even go RPGing on quests. It wont be a game for everyone.

Though if you enjoy Mount and Blade, Spellforce, and Legends of Ellaria you'll love it.

Anyone played it yet? I remember seeing some of the previews, but I thought it was going to be early access for longer than it was.

Reviews are mostly positive so far, but it looks a little janky to me for some reason.

I'd be curious to read more on this one myself, how they balance the mechanics would be interesting to hear.

It's been made mostly by a single developer (who purchased external assets, I assume).
A certain jank is to be expected.

Still should have been kept in the oven a few more months, though, IMO.
Either way, I'm enjoying it.

I tried it for a bit this morning, and yeah, if still feels like an early access game in some ways. The controls in particular need some work. The whole game has a sort of floaty feel to it.

I couldn't even get past the tutorial without encountering a bug. The undead mage got stuck in a wall while I was fighting him and I couldn't progress. I had to restart the game and skip the tutorial.

I can see the appeal though. I did a couple of missions after restarting, and it was fun enough. I like how you can explore random dungeons on your own for additional loot. The combat is very simplistic though.

I'll probably return to it after a few updates and see how it feels.

I loved Spellforce but this leaves me a bit cold…
