Eschalon: Book I - Review @ GamersInfo

GamersInfo has a review of Basilisk's popular indie, Eschalon: Book 1.  As usual for this site there is no score but they obviously liked it:

Once you get past the creation system, you’re dropped into an open-ended world. You can go where you like, and nothing holds you back except for your character’s level and skills. Exploration is turn-based. Just point and click, and he’ll go in the direction you want. Monsters move whenever you do something. Left-mouse button initiate your primary attack, whether it is a sword, mace, dagger or bow, while the right mouse allows you to cast spells. So if you’re being chased or have encountered a tough monster, you can take all the time in the world to decide your next move. Basilisk is not joking with the statement about “playing at your own pace.” You can literally stop and smell every flower. For me, this is one of those games that is perfect to play at the end of the day. Just prepare a cup of chamomile (or Sleepy Time) tea, turn on this game, and slowly inhale and exhale. Feel the tension slowly fade away.
