Just tried the demo for 10 mins before getting a nasty bug while opening a container!
Saw a couple of deer at the start walk on water!
I love the demo!

Yeah, this is what i want; late era wizardry/M&M style movement with an open world to explore just with a little more visual advancement. I'm sure it'll get more pretty as it develops but I'd be happy with this fidelity as long as the world is fleshed out and varied.

Theres a jump button! Hoping for derelict ruins with rubble and different levels to hop over!

I gotta point out: Terrible choice of red text font on title screen,
Conversation dialogue should pop up instantly for those of us who read quickly.

I'll get back to it later today.

This looks like it has a lot of potential. Not sure how I missed it until now. Will definitely try the demo when I have time.

This is Pre-Demo 3 comments:

Aeolwyn's Legacy is a buggy mess, especially on loading a save. You might fall through the world, die on loading a save, take damage as you spawn etc. This game is made by Tim Lang (MM6-9) and I think it'll be good eventually. It gets updates very slowly, so I'd say it's several years away from a true release. I'd be more stoked for this game if it was being updated more frequently or with much meatier updates. Tim loves to talk to folks so, if you like his game, join his discord. He'll talk your ear off

You could play Legendary Journeys too. It is much further along the development path but isn't quite as pretty. It too has several bugs but the developer is much more active on cleaning them up. Several of us watchers have played it and it has vastly more content at this point. I've reviewed LJ on Steam, so you can look at that if your interests generally align with mine. This is going to be a good blobber when it's done.

Try both!

Are they yours? I'd love to get your input on save/load and character creation if so. Both were mostly broke in the version I played two months ago.

Okay, yeah, it's pretty rough.
Graphical glitches abound, and one time I entered a building and it dumped me out to the beginning location.

I still think there's potential though - just a lot more work to be done.

Will have to try it out! Definitely looks better compared to some early screenshots. There's a 2 part interview with Tim on Celestial heavens if anyone's interested.

Watched both a few weeks ago, dude likes to talk but enjoyed every minute! He has shown an understanding of why M&M 9 failed so hopefully takes those lessons to this game.
Overall found the demo fun, crashes and random deaths are all part of it!

What are your impressions, @CBSA82? I liked it quite a bit when it worked, but that was seldom for me.

Honestly it needs a lot of work. But the bones of a good experience are there once it gets more plish.

Character customization is a mix of class then skills and there is a lot of variety. Sadly right now little to nothing is explained so you have no idea what skills do or how they effect things. Also the spell school names are fancy but dont tell you which school does damage vs healing vs buffs ect.

I told the dev he needs to implement a lexicon / guide book in game with definitions at least so people who come into future demos at least know what is going on.

Seems an odd decision to me, to release a demo in this state. What a mess. When there's glaring bugs and technical issues everywhere you turn, I think he'd be better off calling it a pre-alpha, and probably a closed one!

I had no crashes but the game stalls for a minute when I interact with some characters (blacksmith). Anyone managed to get into the castle?
