Overall, I thought it was a brilliant game. The only part that I was a bit iffy about, was how it cuts from the exploration into the battles which did break immersion a little. That's only a minor gripe though! The battle system certainly is interesting though, quite different to most RPG battle mechanics currently in other games so it's well worth taking a look if you find others a bit too samey.

Features:

  • 7 Unique character classes, each with different strengths and weaknesses.
  • Complex skill system with two exclusive enhancement trees and multitude of options.
  • Skill Gestures - draw some of the skills as you want.
  • Gravity manipulation – leap large distances to scatter your enemies or draw them in.
  • Rich equipment system.
  • 150 enemies with unique skills and tactics.
  • Face 50 Bosses wielding a diverse range of skills and spells.
  • Five difficulty levels, including Epic difficulty (not recommended for new players).
  • Multiple combat modes ensure that there's plenty of variety and fresh challenges ahead.
  • Travel through hand-crafted levels that have been carefully designed to challenge you.
  • New character progression system.
  • Unique Party Alignment system.
  • Combat Challenges, designed to test your tactical and party-building skills.
  • Crafting, enchanting, legendary items.
  • Upgradeable city.

Grab from GOG with 30% off. Alternatively Humble Store and Steam.

Holy crap we're getting a ton of great RPGs! Don't even have time to play them all...

I'm still hoping we'll get a native build of The Bard's Tale Remastered, but it does work in Proton.

This one looks awesome.

Yeah, I've gotten to a point where I have so many games I don't know what to play anymore. I think I'm going to try to concentrate on playing BT1. Never got around to beating it when it originally came out, and we should be getting BT4 soon-ish.

Bought this 3 months ago (on a 1 day sale). Haven't got around to trying it yet. Yes, it certainly looks like the sort of game I'd enjoy =P

I've been playing GOG version using Wine+dxvk. Developers just pushed a Unity build with OpenGL renderer enabled, so it might work with native Unity player manually added (it came out on Steam beta, so I'm waiting for GOG update).

Looks indeed quite impressive. Too bad that while I definitely like RPGs a lot, I'm not too fond of party-based ones :o

But, as others wrote already: We do have a hell of a choice nowadays. Something for everyone ;)

What's wrong with party based games? Just wondering your opinion on them. I think some of the greatest RPGs ever released were party based.

You know what's fun (sarcastically)? When you try to get together with friends to play Neverwinter Nights and they try to play it like it's Diablo....

Battletoads!

Although in this case it's probably Bard's Tale.
