Animated sprites, A'ka KOTC 1:

I combed his KS updates, until I found what I wanted. The quality of PVG animated sprites is good enough, I think, for this game. Maybe the KOTC 1 sprites were more unique, but PVG will be okay. KOTC 2 will have nice 3D cities, rendered in ToEI 2D-style by PVG. Art direction is okay: what he could afford. Concept painter's skill is also OK, I think.


However, the PVG assets are divided between two styles (new style and old style). The new style comprises all of the new assets PVG has been releasing on its Patreon channel, while the old style comprises all of the assets found in the PVG asset packs, such as the Medieval Warfare pack, which contains many weapon sprite and paperdoll images.

I will use stuff from both styles, but that means more processing work for me to make the two styles compatible with each other.

I was looking forward to buying this when it came out and I had no idea it was… actually out yet? Or will be, on GoG soon? That's cool, hopefully it comes to Steam as well. I'll definitely be picking this up.

Is this game pretty much a combat-focused D&D adventure like KoTC 1 was? I don't know why but I still thought this was in beta development/kickstarter phases.

Since the first game is now available via Steam, I suspect this one will be as well. I avoid testing stuff these days save for one mmo that I've been involved with for years now, but when the baking is done I'll be all over this one. I'm really please to see that it will also be offered on great old games!!

I enjoy hard games but this first adventure is stupid hard right at the beginning. No place to rest and fighting many spell casters every fight. You can lvl your party up during creation and I would recommend starting at lvl 3.

The game got a lot of complain when version 1.0 was released because it felt at that moment really unfinished and the difficulty level was near absurd. It got quite a lot of update since then and I hope it's better but the update process is rather painful. I'm not sure I'm going to try it again until it's added on Steam.

I still haven't activated my kickstarter package yet. Looking forward to this at some point when I'm in the right mood.

Nod, I'm the same way, Lackblogger. I'm waiting until this one is entirely done before claiming my pledge.
