    Their system designers really know what they're doing.

    Looks great, though the "click sound" is horrible and hopefully placeholder!

    I already want to play this game 8 times, because every single Archetype looks like it would be a fascinating playthrough for completely different reasons.

    Weird though how you pick gender at the very beginning, but that choice doesn't affect the available portraits, nor the archetype graphics.

    Infinitron Can we get a news post about all this new info with that ( :bounce: inducing) character creation video in it too, please? That meaty Kickstarter update should warrant it.

    Looks good, but I would've much preferred if it was more typical rpg like arcanum where you just click on mouse and go there you want.
    What I see right now reminds me a lot about newer game which replace proper exploration and other mechanics with menus.
    Like if you compare Wizardry with Etrian Odyssey they just deleted all town exploration/npc interactions with a bunch of menus, you can't explore town and stuff freely, you cna only explore dungeons.
    Probably just need to play the game to get accustomed with that style of gameplay and it won't see as limiting.

    Also broken bridge looks like a reference to The Horror From The Middle Span.

    Hey Infinitron, the backer demo is out. Worth a newsbit?

    Edit: and whoa holy shit but is it cool

    Hey Stygian people, the NDA was kind of hardcore, is it OK to post screenshots at least?

    Very brief impression of the demo:
    • Production values are much better than I expected, it looks and sounds and feels really good
    • Atmospheric and Cthulhu as fuck
    • Combat is TB jRPGey, nothing too fancy but OK for what it is, although IMO there's too much of it -- I slaughtered like a madhouse full of madmen for the demo and it felt a bit excessive TBH, not every screen has to have a mob in it
    • Very cool how they've worked role-playing into the mechanics -- they reward playing the role matching your selected background... although it does railroad you a bit
    • Loading screens, ugh, fucking Unity
    • Pathfinding could use some work
    All in all I'm super-stoked for this, it's looking really good and I can't wait to play the whole thing.

    Also, it's like meeting old friends really, having a brew with the Fungi from Yuggoth and hanging out with Nyarlathotep. Good times
