    So they got the source code from Chaos Chronicles and turned it into a full game?

    Oh that looks very familiar. I'd heard about that game the first time right here at the codex.

    They even adopted my debug character names for the default party :lol:

    Looks like it. A glance at the developer's page shows they've done work with bitComposer on some projects like linux/mac port of JA BiA. bitComposer isn't credited on the page/trailer so I guess they bought the CC assets? It did seem like the CC devs had a lot of stuff done already.

    bitComposer filed for insolvency early this year, they are out of business. It seems, Bigmoon studios bought some 'Chaos Chronicles' assets from bitComposer before (I fear bC didn't inform Bigmoon about the legal dispute regarding the copyright).

    And according to this trailer, the 3d engine (no lightmaps?) and the combat system are totally different to CC. I highly doubt latter is D&D 3.5e; looks more like D&D 5 to me.

    It's probably still OGL since it has fort/ref/will saves on the character tooltips. They might just have streamlined your system a bit :M

    Looks like it has some potential but could the name be more generic / derivative? Demons Age? Looks like they saw that Dragon Age and Demons Souls were popular - so they mashed them together.

    And... Paulo J. Games? Seriously? :lol:

    HobGoblin42 I've seen that you are working on Spellforce 3.
    When will Grimlore Games start working on a "Chaos Chronicles" type of game? 2016?

    I am utterly at peace with however many Frankenstein's offerings are conjured up with the remains of Chaos Chronicles it takes to get it out there even as a warped, but hopefully still fantastic, spirit of the original thing even if not quite the pristine form it would've theoretically ultimately assumed had things not gone so depressingly wrong.

    That said, this is such a weird year for projects coming out of nowhere and old ones springing to life again---even if the bulk still wind up delayed to 2016.

    Well it certainly seems to be better than SCL, even if it is only D&D look alike.

    Is this going to be turn based?

    And are you sure the system being used is 3e or any iteration of d20?

    If both the above are true i will definitively follow the game and hope it is worth playing.

    This is a pretty good time for a Portuguese company to shovel some wares on an unsuspecting public.

    Still don't know what the system is. It can't be 5e because 5e is not OGL.

    Chaos Chronicles used the OGL rules as baseline. Looking at the tooltips on that trailer it still has D&D statlines so it's fair to assume it's the same but tweaked
