Eschalon: Book III - Preview @ GameBanshee

by Couchpotato, 2014-01-19 04:23:57

GameBanshee has posted a new preview for Eschalon: Book III.

So far I'd say that Book III looks pretty good.  It definitely feels like an Eschalon game, with the content I saw leaning more towards humor and oddness than character depth and emotional catharsis.  For example, while The One looks like he'll be the end boss for the game, you don't see or hear from him at all, and instead you complete offbeat quests where you rescue kittens and deal with snapping clams.  Book III's tone might be a good thing or a bad thing depending on what you're looking for.  I enjoy quirky games, and so it works for me, and I also prefer games where you start your character fresh (the earliest levels are usually the most interesting as you're guaranteed to have gaps in your repertoire), and so that's a bonus for me as well.
