No, I haven't bought it, yet. This indie-game looks interesting.

Yep, may pick it up when I get home. For the price of a large Big Mac Meal, I can get a game. Even if it sucks, I'll probably get quite a bit of enjoyment from just rolling characters. I don't even have to play the game

P.S. I miss large Big Mac Meals. Diabetics really shouldn't order 3 pieces of white bread and 8 ounces of fried potatoes….

At least for now. I bought it to give a looksee. The game isn't full screen. It plays at low resolution with almost half my desktop an annoying background. Other than that, it seems like a basic D&D module starting with one character. I chose an Aasimir sorcerer for the moment, just to see if he can live through a fight.

Okay, you pick up a 2nd toon pretty soon and the combat is pretty typical of AD&D. It doesn't really grab me, but it's not bad either. If you like the skill growth of this system, it looks to be there.

This game appeals to me.

So I googled it and it is available on itch.io, along with another game I've never heard of called Crelabeth: Unholy Lands, both of which are by Fishdog Games.

Soul of War uses 3.5ed while Crelabeth used D20.

If my time wasn't already taken by my ToEE playthrough I'd give one of these a try immediately. I might buy them soon though as they are both on a good offer atm.

I dunno though, I don't want to be suckered into them by their promise rather than their reality as they both suggest many hours of gameplay and I'm not the kind of person who tolerates being a play-tester who has to pay for that ordeal, so any kind of hints as to overall quality of either game would certainly speed up my thoughts.

This is actually possible. I haven't played long enough to get a feel for that though, @SpoonFULL

If I wasn't working ungodly hours, thanks to Covid-19, I'd look deeper into it. If @Ripper wants to look into it, I could gift him a copy

I definitely think it could very well be our old friends with many aliases. Too bad as I was interested for a split second. I'll wait to hear some impressions.

That would certainly be an interesting marketing strategy: Expose your own product as a scam / fraud just to get people talking about it.

But think about it:
He was always so quick to identify the scam AND the scammer (almost suspiciously quick), he left the site a short time after someone said he maybe was Ellis, but just posted yesterday (coincidentally with this news)…
Ah, and also: didn't he left because he said he was working on a video-game?



PS: I don't actually believe that Ripper is Ellis

Wait, but did Ripper seriously say he was working on a game?

Btw "FishDog Games" is allegedly giving away 25 free copies tomorrow. If anyone wants to check out the game and not potentially give money for shovelware scammers, there's your chance.

I don't really know, I read some posts around here that talked about it.

I hope that's the case, that would be cool. Ripper has an elegant and fun writting style.
