Awesome, I like this channel. I'll go and watch it on Youtube directly though just to ensure he gets a view out of it.

I can't decide on this.

It has a lovely aesthetic, and the primary gameplay loop has some attractiveness to it.

But at the same time I can't tell if I'd feel more grinded by it the more I played.

The attributes and levelling system seem to be numerous and many, which indicates a wide variety of potential builds and playstyles, but the game itself is primarily quite focused on just trading items, like other trading sims like Port Royale or Patrician. I can't help thinking that one doesn't require lots of build options if one is just going to to be mostly trading.

There is combat though. And I guess you could play with a more combat focus, but the combat itself is very much nothing to write home about and is about as basic as it gets, so I'm not sure if I'd ever want to specialise in fighting.

Much of your actual time in gameplay will also be doing the whole move 8 squares then stop and rest with a rest screen, which will get annoying very quickly I'm guessing. And the main reward of getting to a destination is reading walls of text, which might or might not be interesting text depending on personal taste.

I do like trading sims and I do like fantasy settings, but something is holding me back.

I honestly think people just don't know what to do with Vagrus. We want new and different things but when they're tried we usually respond with, "Yes but not that…"

The best comparison I can make to Vagrus is Thea 2; and even that isn't really doing it justice.

To my own tastes, Vagrus is the most exciting and fun game to come out in years. It's doing something different, and it does it in a way that makes me want to spend hours fiddling with it. In my mind, that's the hallmark of a best game.
