    It's getting closer. Does anyone have any thoughts about the game they can share? Is it worth playing?

    Why all games have these old outdated graphics. Looks like original ever quest.

    I hate to say it, but it looks like they did better without Tim. Rather amazed they are starting Beta this soon.

    I might check them out.. gonna see what the next 3 months looks like.

    I forgot about this game. I donated to their kickstarter years ago. So I am able to play the BETA. It seems to be offline now, but I will give it a shot

    I have been following this game for a while and definitely want to play it. However, I can't bring myself to buy it until the servers are at least online more than a few days a week. I was really hoping beta would mean 24/7 servers, but it seems that's not the case yet.

    LOL, your eyes must be very bad, you should update your prescription. xD

    Graphics are vanity and people who measure games' fun factor by their graphics are vain, too vain to be taken seriously. I would use words as "shallow" to determine them as well, but my intention is not to insult anyone, just to point out the obvious facts and truths of the matter.

    In reality, a game's real measurement of fun, replay value and whatnot comes from:

    - gameplay mechanics
    - gameplay loop
    - freedom to enjoy the game however you like rather than how a developer intended it for players
    - (something like a reiteration of the above) ways to play the game differently and for different goals than what the developers want


    A perfect example - a brand new game - Elden Ring. Looks nice by modern standards, but despite the graphics quality, the art, atmosphere and everything looks samey and boring. The UI is horrible for mouse and keyboard and worse of all - the gameplay is boring and monotonous and despite the open world it doesn't give the player any freedom to do what they want - there is one goal - complete a set of tasks in order to advance to the next stage, everything else can only be considered as preparation for that, no other reason. A game like this despite looking nice in a way isn't fun or having replay value, when a game as old as The Elder Scrolls 3 Morrowind that looks quite outdated by modern standards offers more replay value and freedom to chase your own goals and find enjoyment and sense of progress in doing different things than following the main quest.

    looks interesting, I like the graphics(if I want realism I will go outside), only reason to hesitate for me is I like occasional PvP ala WoW, SWtoR. Only PVE game I like right now is LotRO and its the story that drives that game for me, if Embers has good story then it may be a win.

    Because they are indy games and it takes a lot of money and talent to make a modern looking, slick game.

    Well, I wouldn't go that far lest I start using the "people who don't appreciate aesthetics are probably the socks and sandal variety garden gnome."

    There's also the idea of "graphics" and "Art Design."

    The Graphics for Darkest Dungeon are exceptionally low. The Art Design is very high. So I'm not sure what they are really griping about..

    But, having said that, for me if the art design isn't good, I don't care how good  the game is I won't play it.

    For me there is another axis that has to be taken into account and that is how the game looks. Great Graphics can definitely help that but not every game needs to render sun motes and complex shaders.

    I wouldn't call people who appreciate/need great graphics or great art design shallow. I would note that they have an appreciation and need for yet another dimension of presentation.

    People whose first complaint is graphics will 99% not play the game due to the graphics not being up to par with their standards. That's the problem.

    Not many people who are stopped by the graphics not being what they expect them to be go beyond that point and try to appreciate a game for its other merits.

    That's like not wanting to talk to/associate with/be friends with someone in real life, because they are ugly or they don't look as good as your expectations are. The analogy is 100% accurate. What do you call such people? To me the description "a**ogant a**holes" comes to mind.

    Not sure how much this is true, since it was not obvious how close they were to the beta at the point of his departure (or was it?).

    I am happy that he is gone though, he was always sounding too arrogant and full of himself and I would expect this to hurt the decision making for the game.
    I really don't know the guy, just second hand mostly, so I am not going to piss on someone that I don't really know.

    But, I do know a lot of doomboi's were crying that letting him go and not making a huge ass deal of the change over from Saga to Embers, and all that changing the whole lore of the game would basically turn the game into vaporware.

    Now, Beta is being launched, so.. they seem to be doing quite good for themselves with this project. Not sure what else changed behind the scenes beyond letting Tim and his brother go, but, whatever they doing, they seem to be making some rock solid progress.

    Better then some other games.. cough.. cough.

    So you either never played the original EverQuest or this is supposed to by hyperbole. Let's do some actual comparison. Watch a few seconds of the above video, take note of the lighting, the detail in the environment, and the animations and then let's compare that to the actual original EverQuest:

    Ah thank you. I was wracking my brains trying to figure out if I'd ever heard of this game before. So what happened? Did Renfail walk away and they switched to a new IP?

    Not sure what you mean by a fork project, but AFIK, Embers Adrift is Stormhaven Studios one, only, and flagship game.

    Anyone else know if they have made other games?
