    Yeah those 1990 eye of the beholder graphics must have been rough on development. We should be thankful it didn't take 30 years.

    But there are many. You can play them entirely solo, and even offline. Also, you are wrong by default.

    You're being a bit optimistic, don't you think?

    23 years from now it will still be pre-alpha, backers will still say there is no rush.

    A creative person is motivated by the desire to achieve, not the desire to beat others.

    It reminds me of Might and Magic of Xeen for the SNES. I liked that one, but I preferred isometric party based stuff like SSI Gold Box to the FPP stuff.

    Yep same here. But there is no way in hell that I would pay over $10 for it. Gotta have standards! :D

    Does that bring back memories, probably on my must buy list...even if it's on Steam.

    Damn, first they hit me with the info that the game will be 40 bucks and I'm all like ' no way I am paying that!' Then they hit me with the info that this is basically one big love letter to Wizardry 7 and practically a spiritual successor to that game and I'm all like 'That could be worth 40 bucks.'

    Guess I'll wait a bit for reviews to come in and see what it is really like. I hope its not buggy, getting these ironed out could take another year or 10 if so.....

    Are trying to say that by the time the game launches we will be playing it in our real spaceships?

    To still get hit with the usual delays. :p

    Well, its an interesting looking game, but, maybe its a bit too 'retro' looking.

    So looking forward to this one - as a huge fan of Wizardry, Eye of Beholder.... and more recently Grimrock series.

    Instant buy for me.

    They must have got help from the Albion guys for this speedy launch.

    Lets give them the benefit of the doubt. They probably faced compatibility issues every few years when a new Windows OS came out.

    Yeah, $40 seems a bit steep. Grimrock and Grimrock II are $15 and $24 respectively. I'd like to hear what people think after launch.

    Buy for me as well.

    Wiz 1-5 were awesome. Endless hours mapping out the dungeon, trying to not get lost and stay alive. Swapping disks on my Apple II. Running around the house because I misplaced the manual and I have no idea what the "page 4, paragraph 3, line 4, 4th word" is.

    Wiz 6, 7, and 8 were 'meh', IMO. They lost me at 6.

    My game catalog from those days: Wizardry 1-5, Bard's Tale 1-3, Ultima 1-5, Zork 1-3 and the rest of the Infocom text adventures.

    It reminds me of Christmas 1987 when I got Dungeon Master for my Atari ST... loved that game back in the day.

    Played all the old school RPGs in the 90s, I enjoyed them a lot but I won't go back with that graphic today in 2017, been there done that.
  • ManestreamManestream Member UncommonPosts: 936
    likewise Ultima 1-9 (and the pre game that launched that series (starts with an A but carnt remember name). Didnt get into Zork, Bards tale was ok (i prefered Ultima).
    Game thats hardly mentioned is Buck Rodgers that game was also fun (though tough when starting out) and the old DnD games series.

    Wish they would bring games like that back or redo them to not lose what they had but to bring them upto date in todays world.
