Ahhh, yes. It’s here. Obsidian’s new, Black Isle Studios style, retro RPG has finally arrived!
I almost forgot all about this game, but thanks to a Kickstarter e-mail, everything was set right. Just the way it should be, I guess. I mean, I had already put some money into it, so, I should probably play it. And play it I have!
First Impression: I really dig this game a lot so far. I’m about an hour and a half into it, and I can already tell that it’s going to take up a significant amount of my precious gaming time! If you’re on the fence about it, I’d say give it go. It takes a lot of things from older gamers of the same ilk(Baldur’s Gate comes to mind.), and updates them just enough to make the game feel fresh and current. Great art style, UI, and voice acting. Totally worth your time. Especially, if you grew up playing these kinds of game. It’s not just a serviceable throw back, but a great game in it’s own right, that comfortably exists on it’s own terms.
My intention is to record every time I play the game, and then post them over on my YouTube channel. Happy clicking!
