The story has only been up for five hours and you are are complaining about a lack of comments already? :rolleyes:

That being said, the graphics and especially the shadowing do look quite nice.

very nice, 1s few seconds I was thinking Ultima Underworld ;) a dungeon crawler with random generated dungeons sounds endless fun though. anything about classes ? or will you gain skills in what you use most, you know like the old DM used to do, even your wizard could become briliant tank if he just kept at it :)

nice. textures seem pretty high quality.
explosion effects are quite not there yet tho.
anyways seems interesting :p

The game looks nice, but does anyone know what the actual gameplay is like? I'm getting a Dungeon Master II kinda vibe from it.
motorsep Jan 7, 2012
The game is a mix of dungeon crawler with aRPG. It will have FPS controls, spells, cold steel weapons, you can dig through the walls to get to a new places, enemies can dig through to get you. It's not precisely like DM2.
Single player and Co-op game modes.
While some comments on quality are fair, you gotta understand we are 2 men team. If you read up on UT3 / Gears of War, it would take one artist a week or two to make an architectural piece done. That's Epic, with bunch of such guys working and using ZBrush at minimum. I use Blender with its Sculpt tool and GIMP. It takes a lot of time to create great looking art assets.

ohh no problem with that. Didn't mean to sound rude or something. Gameplay > Graphics every possible way :)
thx for showing us some of the work in progress stuff.

np, there is more will be coming next week. Also hoping to launch alpha by the end of the month.
